Bewildered

by Kahlil Gibran


Original Language English

This would I have you remember in remembering me:
That which seems most feeble and bewildered in you is the strongest and most determined.
Is it not your breath that has erected and hardened the structure of you bones?
And is it not a dream which none of you remember having dreamt, that builded your city and fashioned all there is in it?
Could you but see the tides of that breath you would cease to see all else,
And if you could hear the whispering of the dream you would hear no other sound.

-- from The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

It's been a difficult week for a lot of people. Some weeks, vulnerabilities just get triggered, and life's solid certainties fade and shift about. If it's been that sort of week for you, don't take it too personally. It's going about. Sometimes we're just being reminded to breathe, to allow the dream to reshape itself. When we listen for the breath, we participate in its rhythm. And from that soft rhythm our world is daily reborn.

That which seems most feeble and bewildered in you is the strongest and most determined.

Have a beautiful weekend!
