Quote by Farid Attar
How strange it was that man could neither brookThe presence nor the absence of his look!
This quote reflects on the peculiar nature of human longing and attachment. It suggests that there is an inherent paradox in human behavior, as individuals can become discontented both when they are in the company of someone they desire and when that person is absent. It hints at the complex dynamics of human emotions and how even the presence or absence of someone's gaze can have a profound impact on individuals, highlighting the delicate balance between desire and dissatisfaction.
She [the Virgin Mary] was normal. She had already had other children. The Bible tells us that Jesus had two brothers. Virginity, as it relates to Jesus, is based on a different thing: Mary initiated a new generation of grace. A new era began. She is the cosmic bride, Earth, which opens to the heavens and allows itself to be fertilized.
