Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.”

“Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart’s knowledge.
You would know in words that which you have always known in thought…

Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.”
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.” Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.”…

For the soul walks upon all paths.
The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.”

Kahlil Gibran - The Prophet
Kahlil Gibran
Kahlil Gibran-On Self Knowledge

 An unforgettable passage from an unexpetedly life-changing literary work of ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran (1923).  Here’s hoping you enjoy this little ditty of literature.
