I could write a hundred books on Bashir al-Bani, and I would not have fully covered everything he was and is to me. No person invested more time and energy in me than he did. Hours upon hours of words and silence, stories and meditation - all to help me see that I am here for a purpose, as everyone of us is, and that this purpose is as beautiful as the Secret who fashioned it.
A young man, who likes to refer to himself as Falcon, once asked me to be part of a series called "Harassing Sensei". In one of these episodes (comic and amateurish, yet sweet and authentic) I share the story of how I met Bashir al-Bani. I leave you with this (you can skip the long introduction and start at 10:35).
