    The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay.Now, don t write to me and prove me wrong on this, because I like the idea very much I believe that Khali
