Quotes by Gabriel Iqbal  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The flesh of the body does not make it conscious
its the unknown inside that does.
The arms of the galaxy do not make it turn around
its the unknown that holds it together and spin around.
The mind does not create the thought
it’s the unknown consciousness
that is plugged to myriad’s of portals that does.
A thing of beauty is not made of brick and mortar
it’s made of an unknown divine spark.
The world is essentially that unknown
Drop the act and connect to the unknown.”
Gabriel Iqbal, Heart Intelligence

“Inside my heart there is
A temple, a synagogue,
a church, a mosque,
A monastery, a fish market
A serene lake, a tempestuous sea
Agreements and disagreements
Glory and failure
A big bang at dawn and
a little bang at dusk
All the cries, aspirations and
silent prayers
Yearning and seeking
Everything disintegrates
and dissolves
In a tempestuous ocean
Finally unifies
Collapses on one altar
In one Breath
In God”
Gabriel Iqbal

“When you are all wasted
by the battles of life
And finally,
given up on ideologies
An embalming hand comes out of Grace
Race towards it
Hold it
Embrace it
Cut off your garments
Expose your wounds
Bare your heart
Heal
Forget
Live”
Gabriel Iqbal

“Life is beautiful
only if the eyes of the heart are beautiful
It looks almost catastrophic via the mind
Measuring, quibbling and boasting
Let the heart control the mind
and we are off to the next Galaxy
both inward and outward.”
Gabriel Iqbal

Gabriel Iqbal Heart Intelligence

Perspectives in Getting Your Point of View Across:

In writing Heart Intelligence I have experienced the following dilemma and I propose a sincere solution:

Our predicament as opposing views collide in our approach to evolving as a “World civilization” is that almost everybody says, “This is the way!”

Our definitions define our worldviews. Hence we argue, all we are doing is asserting a worldview. The adversarial manner of argument has more to do with dominance, control, religious and scientific dogma and very little if at all, the truth. Truth again is just another prerogative and can take various shapes and forms, equally valid based on individual and communal perspectives.

An alternative way to get your point across perhaps sounds something like this:

1. Primarily, acknowledge that “The other” is here and is as equally viable as you.

2. Then, admit that all worldviews are imperfect and could rather be seen as evolving.

3. Further, recognise the language of dominance and control and see it as the status-seeking, ego gratifying act that it essentially is.

4. Once we recognise the need for status seeking, we can exclude our ego from the argument. We are then free to assist “Each other” and dislodge the toxic status-seeking, egocentric and often religious and anthropocentric noxious worldviews we have acquired.

This is an excerpt from the latest book by the author: HEART INTELLIGENCE - BOOK 1 OF TRILOGY.
