Joy And Sorrow - The Prophet

Recommended Posts

While I won't dexcribe it all "The Prophet" talks of Joy and Sorrow and in part says

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart and yu shall see that in truty you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Together they come and when one sits alone with you..........remember that the other is asleep.............. Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

I find this to be true and thought I would share...........it can be seen in its entirety by googling "The Prophet"

Thank you Sharon3, there is a part of me that understands that to feel such sorrow, loss and pain means I had to have had love and as sad as I feel and as bereft as I feel at times, I know I couldn't have such feelings if I hadn't felt love and I do know there are people who have never had such priveledge (we do give what we receive). Thanks for posting. Take care, Deb
