Anam Cara – your soul friend

“In everyone’s life, there is great need for an anam cara, a soul friend. In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension. The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away, you can be as you really are. Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. Where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person’s soul. This recognition is described in a beautiful line from Pablo Neruda: “You are like nobody since I love you.” This art of love discloses the special and sacred identity of the other person. Love is the only light that can truly read the secret signature of the other person’s individuality and soul. Love alone is literate in the world of origin; it can decipher identity and destiny.”
John O’Donohue

ICRC launches ‘Restoring Family Links’ for Lebanon’s Missing

Hummus For Thought

The Lebanese Red Cross (اللجنة الدولية للصليب الأحمر) shared a video released by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for its Restoring Family Links (also in Arabic) project, asking us to help them collect “detailed information on people missing due to the armed conflicts that have taken place in Lebanon‬ since 1975.”

As they explain on their website“Every year, thousands of family members are separated by conflicts, disasters or migration. People suffer terribly when they lose contact with their loved ones and don’t know where they are or whether they are safe. The ICRC and National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societieswork together around the world to locate people and put them back into contact with their relatives. This work includes looking for family members, restoring contact, reuniting familiesand seeking to clarify the fate of those who remain missing.”
