Una rete invisibile di storie

Di seguito una piccola citazione da Le quaranta porte di Elif Shafak.

Le quaranta porte di [Shafak, Elif]

“L’universo è un solo essere” mormorò. “Tutto e tutti sono collegati tra loro mediante una rete invisibile di storie. Che ne siamo consapevoli o meno, tutti intratteniamo tra noi una conversazione silenziosa. Non fare alcun male. Pratica la compassione. Non fare maldicenza alle spalle altrui, nemmeno un’osservazione apparentemente innocente! Le parole uscite dalla nostra bocca non svaniscono, si conservano in eterno nello spazio infinito e torneranno a loro tempo. Il dolore di uno solo farà soffrire tutti. La gioia di uno solo farà sorridere tutti. Questo ci ricorda una delle quaranta regole”. Concluse.
