2022-06-21 | 🔗

I have temporarily lost my voice due to Covid-19, so today's podcast is the rebroadcast of an early reading from 2016.

Listen to episode 690 of the Inspirational Living podcast: Timeless Thoughts About Life. Edited and Adapted from the book The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.

Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Some people say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “No, sorrow is the greater.” But I say to you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at the edge of the bed, remember that the other is asleep under the sheets.

Everyone recognizes that the soul is sometimes a battlefield, one where reason and judgment wage war against passions and appetites.

Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, so that it may sing. And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and (like the phoenix) rise above its own ashes.
