This journal is a place you can savour and honour your inner world, in its entirety. And, to be inspired to authenticity. When we have only ourselves as a witness, honesty may be assumed, but it can take practice, examination and acceptance. So, be gentle and patient as you allow genuine expression to arise and spill forth on these pages. Sketches, poetry, memories, or whatever else you gift to each leaf, do so truthfully and without the desire to understand or be understood. For, Gibran tells us that to be understood, we must limit ourselves.
Grant yourself the freedom and delight of not being grasped, of being misunderstood. Go beyond the margins. Be limitless!
The quotes in this journal are taken from The Madman (1918) and The Forerunner (1920). Both are collections of parables and poems that prompt and goad and welcome the reader to a fresh perspective. These excerpts are presented alongside 43 full-colour artwork reproductions with thanks to the Gibran National Committee (Lebanon) and Telfair Museums (USA).
This deluxe softcover journal features 220 pages of cream-coloured premium quality wood-free paper, with a combination of lined and unlined pages to accommodate all facets of your self-expression – you may like to write, paint or sketch. Featuring quotes from Gibran’s works and 44 pages of full-colour illustrations.
