Secrets of the Heart
The heart of the mystic East emerges from this work by the celebrated author of "The Prophet", and from the outside one feels the tremendous mood, the electrifying boldness, the terrible magnetism of the immortal Gibran. Although these writings appear to be autobiographical in nature, they clearly reveal Gibran as a prophet of penetrating vision and objective understanding. He warns ominously of the grave and unseen dangers yet to befall this world on its stormy path of intrigue, maladjustment, and border consciousness. On the religious side, he displays a brilliance of spiritual insight and a determination of dedication that persist and probe until they pierce the outer self.
