Aside

Seven times I have despised my soul

The first time when I saw her being meek that she may attain height

The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.

The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy and chose the easy.

The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.

The fifth when she forbore for weakness and attributed her patience to strength.

The sixth when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks

The seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.

Khalil Gibran

Masks of deception

Pearl

A pearl is a temple built by pain around a grain of sand

What longing built our bodies and around what grains?
