i practically felt/did everything in this article …….. and still people dont get the hint *sigh*
grace me with your beauty
throw at me your imperfections
show me who resides beneath this human suit
Disturb the peace, that is my chaotic brain
by your thunderstorm of emotions,
for you’re a rainy day, that forms a beautiful rainbow
not a collection of adjectives that form a perfect humanbeing
”The aphrodisiac of being you and only you is sometimes too much to bear over your battered and well used shoulders”
I don’t give five stars lightly, But i can confidently say that this is definitely the best book i have ever read. You don’t just read a book like this you experience it. I fell in love with the characters and in turn i felt their sorrow, heartbreak and happiness. I could relate to Sufism as i have adopted the same method of thinking i haven’t labeled myself as such though and still couldn’t as i did not reach the stage where i could call my self a Sufi yet. I didn’t want to finish reading this novel as it felt like a companion and made me feel very peaceful i was both happy and sad when i ended it as i would be parting with such a treasure but thankfully i am an Arabic speaker so i believe i would like to experience this beautiful treasure with another language. This is the kind of book that could change you forever it’s like a turning point in your life where it divides it into two parts your life before and after. you will be a changed person after reading it or you will be more of the same. Normally i finish books faster than this but i wanted to relish every single word and think about every single scene and rule and apply it to my life, i would reread certain pages again and again to fully experience the emotions to the extent that you feel like you’re a part of the novel and the scenes taking place. The words here are alive and effective and beautiful beyond imagination.
Now is not the time of shoulds and shouldnts. It’s the time of possibilities beating the impossibilities, the time of self satisfaction. It’s not the time of them, but the time of you and me. It’s the time of unlimited and infinite boundaries, the time of freedom and adventure, the time of the living rather than the undead.
