The Prophet (1923) Kahlil Gibran - read by: Ngon'e Aw
The Prophet provides timeless spiritual wisdom on a range of subjects, including giving, eating and drinking, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, teaching, time, pleasure, religion, death, beauty and friendship. Corresponding to each chapter are evocative drawings by Gibran himself.
Love and marriage
Foolish is the person, the prophet says, who 'would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure', for to wish this leads to less of a person, who has seen less pain but also less pure joy. The prophet says: "When love beckons to you, follow him/Though his ways are hard and steep".
We cannot wish for love to reach only a certain measure, or to presume that we can direct the way its course, "for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course." As much as love allows for our growth, it also acts to prune us so that we grow straight and tall.
When questioned about marriage, the prophet departs from the conventional wisdom that it involves two people becoming one. A true marriage gives both people space to develop their individuality, in the same way that "the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow".

Nancie Zeller is an artist, designer, business women, educator, and consummate mother, but what has brought her to Meaningful Connections is her mother's book and legacy to the World: Love, Sex, and Beyond Time.
Nancy's mom, Mary Zeller, was a registered nurse that opted out of her career, and the love of writing, to be the consummate wife and mother. She wrote “Love, Sex, and Beyond Time” after the passing of her husband in search of the lost love and understanding of the romantic fairy-tale she lived. The book is a compilation of Mary’s personal thoughts, saying and quotes combined with some of the greatest minds throughout history broaching the topics of love, life, sex, and the hereafter.
Some quotes or points of interest in the book:
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. Kahil Gibran
You can only find true happiness through love, yet, without love you are only a vessel. Mary Zeller
And so it seems that we have met before and laughed before and loved before but who knows where or when. Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart

Laura Mayer is truly an amazing person. She chose to step outside the traditional medical box and entered into a a belief system that helps her live a life that is full of gratitude and healing. Laura was originally diagnosed with a progressive, debilitating and eventual crippling degenerative disease that the Doctors said would leave her in a wheel chair at the age of 25 and kill her by the age of 40. Now at the age of 56, Laura is completely healed. Laura shares with us how she learned to totally love herself, how she released the dramas and traumas of the her past, completely transformed her life, and ultimately healed from a progressive degenerative disease.
“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” ~Kahlil Gibran
Are you and your significant other committed to your relationship? Do you have the ability to accept each other as each of you are RIGHT NOW.
They say opposites attract. With diverse opinions and visions, can you as a couple model what can be accomplished together. Can you as a committed partner have the ability to recognize that when you're in a relationship that is equal and safe and you trust your partner, you become MIRRORS OF EACH OTHER. This is dependent upon openess and trust that is uncommon in non-intimate relationships.

Wholism is a MindBodySpirit issue. Allopathic approaches divide the body, and separate body from mind...yet for many thousands of years, Eastern knowledge has approached malady as imbalance...rather than disease. I've learned to distinguish dis-ease, lack of ease...from "disease." Disease, with fatal or lingering symptoms, is something we actually build and cultivate in ourselves, because we buy into a notion that the dis-ease is stronger than the miracle of our body.. We have been taught to believe that we WILL get 'sick,' and that we are powerless to help ourselves...and must have someone or some chemical do it for us.
It becomes blatently apparent to me that as we depend on that which is outside ourselves, Doctors, Hospitals, Supermarkets, etc...we are relinquishing our Autonomy!! We are DEpendent instead of INdependent.
And so I advocate and practice Wholism and am healthy, happier and happier...
I will start the show with a reading from Kahlil Gibran, "My Soul Counseled Me." This Notion, Li, Inner-Listening is a subject enlivened in today's ever-growing population of people Seeking to understand where they Begin...where the SOUL of Life Began...and where they/we can Connect to and Be that Basic Goodness which is the Substance of Wholeness.

International forces operating in Afghanistan are moving too quickly toward the exit doors, a Russian defense minister said Wednesday.
International forces in Afghanistan wrap up their combat operations next year, transitioning to an advisory role as Afghan forces take on security responsibilities.
Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said it was too soon to give Afghan forces more authority.
The International Security Assistance Force "has been too hasty about making the final decision to pull out in 2014," he was quoted by state news agency RIA Novosti as saying. "Domestic security forces capable of countering radical elements have not yet been created."
Russian military intelligence in May said it was concerned radical elements inside Afghanistan may become more influential after 2014.
Nearly 7,000 Russian troops are stationed in Tajikistan, Afghanistan's northern neighbor. Antanov said the Russian military was "doing very much" to strengthen its regional military position ahead of the pullout.
In an effort to make amends for all the evil she has done, Eve uses her evil genius in a masterful scheme to place black women in a position where they can enjoy the very best of everything that life has to offer. It is a grand plan and once she enlists the help of Stella Ashford, the mother of Brianna and Neon, she realizes just how good her chances of success really are. With Stella calling the shots, a secret society of beautiful, black women is established and they have one goal and one goal only: TO RULE THE WORLD! Once these sistas get turnt up, there is no stopping them.
The Blessing of Adversity

"One may not reach the dawn, save by the path of the night." Kahil Gibran
We would all love life to run smoothly with no complications, no traumas. But you have probably noticed that this is not the way life works.
Our world is governed by Universal Laws, and two of them, The Laws of Polarity and Rhythm, assure us that life has both sides. Having a positive attitude (which we should all cultivate) does not mean that nothing undesired will ever happen to us; it helps you handle adversity and allows you to come through it with less pain.
The anonymous quote, "If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it," is true. Many people who suffered serious loss or health challenges have said they would never want to "trade" those experiences for more pleasant ones -- for they learned so much and experienced soul growth and inner transformations.

My name is Roberto O; I’m a grateful believer in Jesus Christ who has been set free from a 15 year addiction to alcohol and drugs. I currently over see a family business of asset management and giving back is the most important key for my sobriety. Today I serve at my local church and teach men's classes for addition and healing.
