The Eyes Say it All…Tribute to a Phenomenal Dr

Standard

From the bed he lays in, unable to move or talk, his eyes say it all.

Although I don’t personally know him, however his story is so touching that I have to share it with you.

With a will power so strong, and a commitment to life, his mission is to share with us an experience, so different, so humbling and so inspiring. This amazing person is Dr Jamil Zogheib, a very famous Paediatrician who graduated as Medicine Doctor in 1986, and Paediatrician in 1992. He started practicing in 1992. He built his success through his competence in his practice treating children. He also contributed to the development of two, Neonatal Intensive Units (NICU) in Lebanon.

Dr. Zogheib was diagnosed with ALS in 2008 that left him completely confined, unable to move a muscle except his eyes. His determination, and love for life, since his diagnosis, hasn’t stopped him from constantly teaching, inspiring, and motivating people, or from even continuing his practice and following up with his patients through his Facebook page, ensuring his loyal followers get his free professional advice and support.

This piece is a tribute to the amazing person he is, whose will to live and share his experience with us, is beyond what we can imagine. It is true, Dr Jamil Zogheib has been confined; yet, his willpower and his beautiful soul have been traveling far beyond, delivering great expressions, and powerful words written through his eyes, using Tobbi’s Eye Tracker, where he has published 9 books so far, “My Life, My Story”, “ Tips for children Health”, “Memories of a Paralysed”, “Living in Silence and Immobility” to mention some, and conducted seminars worldwide through Skype, and he has also initiated an ALS group in Lebanon to help raise awareness and action to this disease.

He recently requested that his story be told in a documentary ” Jamil a Flying Soul” which was instigated and produced with the support of Mrs Karen Bustany, who according to his words, has made his wish come true, the documentary was produced by the talented Mr. Habr and Mrs. Khoury, the screening was held in NDU (Notre dame university in Lebanon) on 19th December 2014, with the objective of spreading it internationally.

Dr Jamil Zogheib story is beyond phenomenal, it is about celebrating life and overcoming pain and disease, it is about empowerment and love, it is about humanity and spirituality, it is about being a free soul no matter how confined one is, and how malignant a disease can be, it is the story of a hero who is writing “humanity” in a whole new way, overcoming all odds, and in the true essence of the saying, “The eyes are the window to the soul”.

Dr Jamil Zogheib documentary “Jamil a Flying Soul” is expected to go internationally in the hope that it will spread more awareness to ALS, courage, faith, motivation and gratitude to life.

What if…?

Standard

What if?

What if today was the beginning of spring and the end of my Gypsy soul journey?
What if tomorrow is winter and the beginning of my adventure?

wandering

What if today, I truly find peace and tomorrow,
I will be remembered for my lost days, my lonesome trips, my plea for love?

What if I land in a place where I am not left alone, where every creature knows how to love,
where family is not a word, where sadness is non existent.

Today, I long for eternity.
I want to go back, I am ready.

words live on

What if life, will forgive me and I can be set free, to a place that knows no time, no pain, no fear, no hate, no commitment except that of love, of giving and of mastery.

Today, I am ready to go back,
and leave that memory.

words are eternal

What if, that time, is today?

Seduce me…

Standard

Seduce me, why don’t you,
Capture my mind with your intelligence,
Stimulate me with your knowledge,
Take me with you,
Let’s mark a spot in this universe.

You are such an enigma.

enigma

Gypsy soul: You are such an Enigma

Seduce me why don’t you,
Love me, for who I am,
Let’s travel together, to that unnoticed destination and make the ocean fall in love with us,
and the waves, oh those waves, cover our souls and revive our stories…

Seduce me, why don’t you,
Let this moment stand still and our hearts rejoice,
Love me, for who I am,
Let’s colour the clouds with our breaths,
The sky will feel jealous, the stars will unite and the moon, oh that lovely red blood moon, will cry…

Seduce me, why don’t you,
I will love you, for who you are,

You are such an enigma.

Barefoot

Standard

Stop for a while,
Keep your shoes on,
Walk,
Look around you:

photo sources: google  "walk"

photo sources: google
“walk”

Don’t they all look alike?
Don’t they all look like variations of colors splashed on a painting?
Some colorful, some cheerful,
Some dull, some indifferent and some faceless?
Doesn’t it feel like a theatrical, a play?
Some are good performers, some are not so good and some don’t fit in?
Sometimes you see their mouths open and close, yet you do not hear their voices, you do not feel marveled, you simply do not feel,
Or you might feel uneasy, unwell, un-amused, or shadowed by their intentions,
And Sometimes you just hear their voices without them speaking and feel their passion draw you to their characters?
What a challenge it is to see what you see, hear what you hear and feel as such; yet you cannot, except be in such a circle,

Now try to walk barefoot,
Walk on, look down, look up, and look around,
Feel the ground, the heat, the cold, and the pain in your feet:

photo source: google
“Walk Barefoot, leave a foot print behind”

Don’t you feel exposed?
It feels good; it is the chance to know the truth, about yourself and about your surrounding,
Those who are unafraid to walk “barefoot” truly make the colors stand out of the painting, show the charisma of the performers, express the story, beam their light,
Make you shine,

The pictures, the play, the theatrical, the paintings, the characters,
Will feel real if they are genuine, and you will not feel exposed,
They will feel unreal, and …you will feel exposed
When you feel grounded, you are more attuned, and you will be able to know, to learn, to feel, to enjoy your “barefoot” pace, and walk longer no matter the ground,

People, who walked barefoot in history, are beacons of light today,
They knew the truth, shared it and taught it to those, who were not afraid to walk barefoot too,

Let us celebrate freedom and get exposed,
Fearlessly as we surround ourselves with the light,
Let us walk barefoot and enjoy every challenge,
The only ones really exposed, are those who do not have the courage to walk barefoot,
And those who do, walk on inexhaustibly and leave a footprint behind.

 

Sound of Silence

Standard

Sitting by the beach,
Captivated by the twinkling water,
I close my eyes and all I see;
Is a beauty so divine, hidden beyond,
The sound of silence.

moonlight by the beach

moonlight by the beach

Waves rise and fall,
The moon shines above me,
Leaving my shadow behind,
Tides wash through my feet,
Such a bliss to be touched by mother nature,
To hear her song, feel her tenderness, her eternity,
In the sound of silence.

As I melt in this beauty,
I dwell in my inner self and I see a reflection of her,
I hear her call,
I watch her dance,
I feel her touch,
I sense her warmth, such an expression of love,
I grasp her forgiveness,
In the sound of silence.

She caresses my heart, she moves my soul, she welcomes me,
Such a pure flow of generosity,
She whispers;
And I breath in, my dream,
She whispers;
And I Know.

In this night, the sky has shined its light,
And my mother, has washed away my sorrow,
And I regained my trust, my hopefulness, my star,
I want to stay in her shelter forever,
I want to hear her comforting rhythm, listen to her music,
I want to linger in this serenity, I want to stay and hear that sound of purity,

Awakening

Awakening

But I have to go back,,
I promised her to go back, I promised her to stay in touch,
I promised her, I will keep listening to and hearing;
Our sound of silence.

Surrender

Standard

Truth be told,
I was being caught,
Held up in two worlds,
Tried to fight, but then I realized,

I will only win if I surrender.

light in darkness

light in darkness

I gave it all I could,
I tried all I can,
I prayed to all, but I was still standing in that point,
That point of no return.

Years passed by until I found that a warrior is a winner no matter how,
It was lack of faith, abandonment and hate that caused this feeling of defeat.

A teacher told me the other day,
Surrender is the key to winning back your life and continuing your unexplored journey,
Just look out for the signs.

surrender to miracles

surrender to miracles

Surrender and let it be,
Surrender and you will see,
Surrender to life,
And give faith a chance,
Believe yourself a winner in such circumstance
And so it shall be.

when the time is on

Yogi Bhajan “when the time is on”

Surrender like a hero, show up, stand up,
Trust in that miracle,
Surrender to your dream,
Make room for it to manifest,
Surrender, fight with life, not against it
Trust and you shall see,
The light within you will shine past the fields, across the sea,
Glistening like crystals, outshining any dark stuck from that past.

Surrender, surrender, surrender,
And win the fight,
Life is fair and you shall see it all,
Unfolding like a miracle which you once thought is hard to behold.

Trust, surrender, love and ignite,
You are the winner after all!

you are a winner after all

you are a winner after all

Pressed for Words

Standard

Words are tossing and turning in my head as I try to attune.

 

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87


I am looking for that right rhythm, to share with you my latest journey that features, gurus, great personalities, and real people, or in humble words, ambassadors of life and love, who have started making a difference, in my world and soon hopefully in yours.

I am pressed for words, there is so much going on, in my mind, which is telling me to “write,write, write” and express how I feel, this is so overwhelming, as I want to give this topic and those great people and mentors, real justice in my writing, and those who know me, are aware how this comes through, writing for me, is a metaphysical experience…I let my fingers do the work as they type through tapping on the keyboard like magic wands, and I see and read the outcome in the end…so let’s see what they want to say :)

I am pressed for words, as my title goes, for the intention today, is not made up only of words or stories or poems or visuals, it is rather a frequency that I want to share, a frequency that I was able to tap into after being so enriched by an amazing teacher whose name started reaching new corners of the world, his teachings are “technologies” that exist within each and every one of us…and are more powerful than basic science can explain. For those who are interested to know more and if you are not familiar with the name, he is Yogi Bhajan. He is a master, a leader and a guru.

His student, “New York Times best-selling author of May cause miracles”, life changing motivational speaker, one of YouTube’s next Vloggers, also featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays, Gabrielle Bernstein, appeared in my life when I really needed the proper literature and logical conviction to trust, to let be, and to let go. The answer was simply in believing in miracles and by “adding more ing” into my life.

We all deserve to be happy, abundant, healthy and good in our own right, no matter how much we are challenged and disrupted by negative energies that try to squeeze into our happiness. Although it is very easily said, but it does take willpower, real intention, focus and honesty to attain.

There is so much energy out there that we can tap into, to help ourselves, help others, and enjoy the journey as we go by, we can only do that by learning from the wise and carrying their message of truth, beyond the borders of our pen, reaching out to our universe and extending their teachings to our circles, while ensuring proper credit, appreciation and gratitude is given to them, for they are such amazing people who left a trace in this world, touched million’s of peoples lives, created an intelligent awareness that made this world look smaller, feel better, and be more connected in space and time. 

In love, light and gratitude to the masters of today, and yesterday, and my beautiful followers, I close this post. I hope that it has inspired you, as much as it has inspired me, to dig deeper and find answers, so that you can embark on your next journey and start a new story to share.

I know my new journey has just begun…

Message from a Rose

Standard

As I am having my coffee this morning,

my morning coffee

my morning coffee-thoughts and messages

 

I remembered a lovely conversation I had yesterday with a dear friend, who shares a lot with me in this realm and beyond and so an urge overtakes me from a word, a symbol, she made me notice, and I write;

Message from a Rose

message from a rose

message from a rose

In the dark cold night,
I can feel the warmth,
Wrapped by the moonlight, covering my every being,
Shining its beauty upon me and reflecting my love of existing,

lovely roses

message from a rose-my love of existing

In the morning breeze,
I feel the joy of freedom,
The freedom to share my beauty, to thrill your senses, to inspire your passion,
As the sparkling morning dew on my skin, twinkle in the sun, like diamond droplets,
I am visited by a butterfly who knows, what it’s like,
To live in the colors, to bathe in the sun, to spread your wings, to live in the moment,

roses and butterflies

message from a rose-live in the moment

In the garden of life I exist,
I will only make sense, to those who are in touch with their truth,
I will only reflect beauty, to those who can admire and appreciate my splendor,
I will fill your life with magical scents, that you will be able to smell me long after I am gone,

roses and beauty

message from a rose- you live on

And remember my message.

 

remember my message

from a rose-remember my message

Beauty and Beyond—Painting with Words—A Dedication

Standard

I usually close my eyes and words start flowing through my fingers like magic. This time around, the topic is very precious that my words are being weighed in divinity before I type. This topic is fragile and close to my heart, so writing this requires a lot of consideration as it concerns, the most precious, beautiful, gifted, considerate, delicate, yet powerful beings I have encountered in my journey so far. “They are real women who touched my life .” And so, let us listen to what I have to say and what will come out from my Gypsy Soul.

A dignified image, a portrait of colors,
Scents of courage that feed the senses,
A gentle warrior, armed with words of wisdom,
You are the representation of beauty, a woman who stands by her own word,
A magnificent light, an embodiment of zen, a force of nature,

Portrait of a real woman

Portrait of a real woman

Your eyes tell a thousand stories,
You are the representation of love.
A woman of substance and glory,
You are the manifestation of authenticity,
A woman with eternal hopes and genuine mutual desires, equality reigns your universe,
You are the source of mystery, spreading delightful energy,
A woman who engraves history, today,

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87

You are the role model, an intelligent being inside out,
A woman, an idol, a peaceful warrior, an entrepreneur, an artist, a painter, a writer, an author, a mentor, a speaker, a worker, an athlete, a champion, a fighter, a photographer, a chef, a designer, a mother, a confidant, an aunt, a sister, a friend, a grandmother, a colleague, a fellow blogger, a neighbor, a relative, an acquaintance,
You are any of this and more,
I salute you;
A genuine woman with a mission,
No matter where you are in life,
You are beauty and beyond.

Shadows of Light

Standard

Light discerning upon us, like flames,
Sometimes it’s pretty, sometimes it’s an illusion and sometimes it burns,

shadows of light

Shadows of light

Troubled by the past, cheated by the present, abandoned by the truth,
A hint of time, a longing for joy, a fear of deceit, from a pattern of unfaithfulness that keeps disturbing my peace,
A bond that keeps unlocking itself, as I grow older,

Abandoned

Abandoned by the truth

A treasure that reveals an empty box every time I touch it,
I know, I am being tried, tested and controlled, as cliché as it may sound,
I am being tried and tested, yes, for my endurance, but I cannot be controlled, that, no,

endure the test of time

Endure the test of Time

A Gypsy like me lives with an untamed soul, that can and will survive it all,

Listen to the Music

Untamed Gypsy soul

So I shall dance with the shadow until the light will learn to embrace it, and, reveal…

Dance with the shadow

Dance with the shadow

The mix of mysterious emotions,
The present characters, no matter how close,
Who will remain those shadows in my life, until they learn to dance with the lights and reveal them passers by.
