I remember as a young girl, reading excerpts from The Prophet. My mother introduced me to the beautiful poetry, and I’ve always loved it.
Here’s one of my favorite little sayings and reminders from The Prophet:
I always try and lead from my heart and listen to it as deeply as I can. I think yoga constantly helps us tune in to our heart and our inner voice. When we feel integrated and complete in our Self, our inner radiance shines through; and it’s easier to open our hearts to everyone in our life.
The Prophet, by Kahil Gibran, is one of the most popular volumes of poetry ever written. It has sold over 100 million copies since it’s publication in 1923. Today, The Prophet, opens in theaters. The cinematic adventure produced by Salma Hayek, was an official selection at Cannes. Salma Hayek also acts in the film as the lead. A brief synopsis of the film:
“Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion. Featuring music from Damien Rice, Glen Hansard and Yo-Yo Ma.”
