Yahia Lababidi is a widely published poet and author. He has granted Millennial permission to publish a set of his aphorisms. We hope our readers find wisdom in these pithy thoughts:
Every enmity with another is part of our unfinished work on ourselves; a free person has no enemies.
There’s freedom in not needing to have an opinion on everything.
The divided self is spiritually immature. Divine union begins with self-unity.
The contemplative life is not a passive one.
Live recklessly: Trust
The love that we hold back, in turn, holds us back.
Tranquility begins on the other side of commitment.
As we make peace with ourselves, we become more tolerant of our faults — in others.
The difference between drawing attention to one’s self and a cause? A hairline.
To enter each day with empty hands, trusting you will receive what you need – such is spiritual poverty.
To accept the world as it is isn’t realistic, it’s cynical.
It is a sign of cultural decadence when the fear of being considered a prude is greater than the shame of appearing immoral.
