The Lebanese born author Kahlil Gibran has written many unforgettable stories. His most mesmeric story is The Prophet. This book revolves around Almustafa the chosen one, a guide, the prophet or the prophecy. Almustafa is leaving the city of Orphalese after a 12-year wait, to return to his birthplace. Before he leaves the people of Orphalese reach for him. They ask for Almustafa to reveal what he has been shown of everything in this vicious circle we call life. In this brutal circle Almustafa found only understanding and love, balance and oneness.Some of the subjects in his teaching vary from birth to love and marriage, joy and sorrow, crime and punishment, reason and passion, pleasure, beauty and finally death. His outlook is unique. Almustafa finds only innocence in guilt. Love in hate. Good in bad.Kahlil Gibrans writing is powerful. It may be dreamy but is extremely honest. This book, The Prophet is fiction but fact. This work of art is almost religious. It brings a balance in his passion. This balance is what makes his writing, his teaching believable. It is his experience, intelligence and understanding that make The Prophet an exceptional read. This understanding Kahlil Gibran has on life and death as a whole makes The Prophet go beyond religion, as in this book there are no false truths, but just truth. He has a gift to find simplicity in everything that is complex. A balance in everything that is unbalanced. Almustafa knows that the answers to these questions are in everybody, in light or in dark.The Prophet is a writing that can be read over and over again. This book has something new to teach with every time one reads it. Kahlil Gibran’s writing in The Prophet is uplifting, with all mind, body and spirit.
