Remember Your Greatness



Before you were born,
And were still too tiny for
The human eye to see,
You won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
And yet,
How fast you have forgotten
Your strength,
When your very existence
Is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
A warrior,
One who defied the odds
By surviving the most gruesome
Battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,
Why do you even doubt victory
Against smaller numbers,
And wider margins?
The only walls that exist,
Are those you have placed in your mind.
And whatever obstacles you conceive,
Exist only because you have forgotten
What you have already

The Key to a Wonderful Life

The Key to a Wonderful Life

The key to a wonderful life
Is to never stop wandering into wonder.
Because to live a predictable life,
Only fills a person with strife,
And such a person will always be wondering:
‘What a limitless life could be lived beyond the lines?’
Such is a question a curious spirit would never sit and ponder.
So always pursue new ventures in your life,
And be willing to open doors to different light;
This is the only way to keep it magical and always filled with wonder.
Days will feel shorter, but your happiness will grow stronger —
Because living a life without curiosity and adventure,
Is a stale life where days only feel longer and

My Philosophy on Religion

 Suzy Kassem philosophy religion


A pineapple is a compilation of berries that grow and fuse together. When joined, they create a single fruit. And within each eyelet, contains a location where a flower may grow. In other words, a pineapple is a geometric cone that connects many separate parts into one unified whole.

I see the Creator of all existence as the crown on a pineapple, and all religions of the world as the spiky eyelets — where each eyelet symbolizes a different religion (or race) under the same crown. Each garden of faith may have different perspectives of God, yet every garden belongs to the same God.

To explain this further, we can look at the origins of the pineapple and the way it is eaten all over the world. Even though it originated in South America, the fruit has spread throughout Europe, Africa, and the Far East – the same way the exact same core beliefs found in all religions have traveled far and wide from the eye of the world. In Brazil, people like to grill pineapples. In India, it is added to curries. In America, we like to toss it in fruit salads or on pizzas. And in Mexico, it is dusted with salt and spicy chili powder. So the same way pineapple is served uniquely in every country, is how one belief system (or message) can be interpreted and served differently in different regions of the world. You can spice it up, add sugar to it, grill it, smash it up, fuse it with other things borrowed from other places (i.e. pizza/Italy) and make it your own unique brand. Yet in the end, no matter how your change it up or serve it, it is still a pineapple. And yet, even though the flesh of the fruit and its crown is obviously the same, some people will still convince themselves and others that what they are eating (or what they believe in) is different than others just based on how it is visually served. Metaphorically speaking, those who see can see “the pineapple” in all religions have done their homework by seeking knowledge and are on the right path to Truth. While those who still see bananas and cherries are lost. Seeking knowledge and truth are prominent tenets found in ALL religions of the world. Had one holy book contained the whole picture, you would have never been directed to seek knowledge outside of it.


The universe contains many planets which make it what it is – a unified system. In addition, our bodies contain many organs, and each part is congruent to a planet in our solar system. The universe we see out our eyes is a mirror of what is within us. This is what God meant by making man in his image. We are all made as a reflection of God and that reflection of him is within us. Furthermore, not only are all religions connected to the same Truth, or Cosmic Heart, but this concept is also mirrored in the pantheons of ancient religions, where each of the many gods simply represented one set of characteristics of the ONE. And in all cases, these many gods symbolized the planets, therefore mimicking the different parts of the universe and the ONE God’s many mirrors (He Who is All). The structure behind all polytheistic religions of the past and present is one and the same. They are all built on the same foundation as Nature. The same way Islam has 99 names for God, where each name is simply an adjective describing God or an attribute, polytheistic religions worship the many characteristics of God by assigning a set of his traits to a god (planet), and then matching that planet to elements found in Nature. Yet in the end, all religions are worshiping the same entity. Nobody knows his true name, but replacement names given to him are only honorifics, adjectives, attributes, or symbolic in nature. Not actual names. For example, the Aramaic word for “God” in the language of Assyrian Christians is ʼĔlāhā, or Alaha. Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, use the word “Allah” to mean “God”. Yet the word “God” is not his true name, and “Allah” simply means “The Only One to be Worshiped.”

When I read religious books that condone the worship of many gods, I can tell those words are man-made, for the ONE TRUE GOD would already know that these many gods found in Ancient Greece, Egypt, and Hinduism are just different unique parts of him that make up his WHOLE. After all, God is “All-Knowing”. So how could he not know this obvious truth? Divine geometry is built on this foundation, and it was he who designed this sacred formula replicated throughout Nature. Thus, I do not believe that God shuns the reflections of his many parts, so long as followers do not confuse them as unique entities to him, but that these parts are given images and names. And had mankind listened to the Creator when he advised his children to never create his image or give him a name, then humanity would not be so confused and divided in believing that every faith is worshiping a different god.


It was not God who created many different brands of religion. It was man. God only had one truth, one message. It was man who created many images and distortions of “God”, thus creating barriers, and confusing all of mankind from seeing that his message is one and the same. This is what the “All-Knowing” true God wanted to prevent. Every religion in the world promotes the exact same morals, values, and virtues – and with a judgement system. Mankind could eliminate all the division and confusion in the world just by agreeing to collectively make the 10 commandments the universal moral system for all of mankind. After all, these basic moral laws are mentioned in all religions regardless of what they are called.

So if our value system is already one and the same, then why do we need to separate ourselves from each other by branding ourselves with the name of a religion? Do you really need a title to validate to others that you believe in the Creator? Why should any good man be judged by others based on his faith? Why can’t he just be judged based on the weight of his heart and his moral character rather than a religious label? We are not sheep or cows. God didn’t create fences for us or boundaries to contain our nationalities. Man did. God didn’t draw up religious barriers to separate us from each other.  Man did. And on top of that, no father would like to see his children fighting or killing each other. The Creator favors the man who spreads loves over the man who spreads hate. A religious title does not make anyone more superior over another. If a kind man stands by his conscience and exhibits truth in his words and actions, he will stand by God regardless of his faith. If mankind wants to evolve, we must learn from our past mistakes. If not, our technology will evolve without us.

Once we can get all of mankind to see and promote our commonalities over differences, then we can also collectively and passionately enforce equality, truth and justice as the laws of every land. Then there will be stability, prosperity and true peace for all. If we do not, then language, religious, and cultural barriers will continue to prevent us from seeing that we are all ONE. Does a pineapple have to be called a pineapple in English in another country for an English-speaking person to know what it is? No. A pineapple has a different name in every country, but even a child can still tell its a pineapple. So why can’t we judge mankind the same way? No matter how you dress a human, a human is still a human. And all humans grieve, love, and bleed the same way. How hard is it to see that we are all more similar than different? God did not disconnect mankind, man did.

Incomplete Science

Incomplete Science - Suzy Kassem PoetryINCOMPLETE SCIENCE

Love is a chemical reaction,
But it cannot be fully understood or defined by science.
And though a body cannot exist without a soul,
It too cannot be fully understood or defined by science.
Love is the most powerful form of energy,
But science cannot decipher its elements.
Yet the best cure for a sick soul is love,
But even the most advanced physician
Cannot prescribe it as medicine.

Not Until I Met You

Not Until I Met You - Suzy Kassem poetry


Not until I felt your sunshine,
Did I realize that I had been in the shade.
Not until I saw all your colors,
Did I realize that mine had faded.
Not until I heard your dream,
Did I realize that I was still sleeping.
And not until I experienced my life with you,
Did I realize that I was barely

The Inhumane Human

Last month another surfer died from a fatal shark attack in Australia. This event resulted in surfers joining forces to call for the killing of sharks.

As humans, our territory is on land. If we were meant to control the skies, we would have been given wings, and if we were meant to control the seas and oceans, we would have been designed to breathe underwater. The Creator created for us many natural water sources: lakes, ponds, rivers, fountains, streams — so that we would not tamper with the seas or oceans. This is why there is salt in the them, so we do not drink from them, or bother the huge creatures he put in them to control the food chain. The salt content found in huge bodies of water is extremely vital to the elevation of the earth. This can be explained through basic physics or metaphysics.

At the same time, wild creatures were also placed in jungles and forests to keep humans out of them. Plants are vital to purifying the atmosphere. And many wild animals rely on plants as their food and medicine. Had the Creator not placed animals like tigers, wolves, bears, and other big creatures in untamed regions which are intended to remain inhabited, he knew that mankind would take over those areas — leaving nothing for the animals.

For surfers to call for the killing of sharks just so that they can play in the water with no fear — is not only cruel and selfish, but also very ignorant and childish. Water on every shoreline across the world is typically set very low so that big creatures cannot come too close, and that we would not go in too deep to get too close to the big creatures. In other words, space was created by divine design for us to enjoy oceans and seas, and that space was intentionally designed to have a limit.

We are not more superior to animals. Animals have hearts and minds too. They are capable of love, hatred, jealousy, revenge, hunger, fear, joy, and caring for their own and others. We look at animals as if they are inferior because we consider them to be savage and not civilized, but in truth, it is US who are not being civil by drawing lines between us and them — and ignoring their territories. A wild animal’s life is very straightforward. They spend their time searching and gathering food, mating, building homes, meditating and playing with their loved ones. They enjoy the simplicities of life without any of our technological gadgetry, materialism, mass consumption, wastefulness, superficiality, mindless wars, excessive greed and hatred. While we get excited by the aural vibrations coming from our TV sets, headphones and car stereos, they get stimulated by the vibrations of nature.

So, just because animals may lack the sophisticated minds to create the technology we do or make brick homes and highways like us, does not mean their connections to the etheric world isn’t more sophisticated than anything we could ever imagine. That means they are more spiritual, reflective, cosmic, and tuned into alternate universes beyond what our eyes can see. So in other words, ANIMALS are more advanced than us. They have the simple beauty we lack and the spiritual contentment we may never achieve.

Maxims of Medicine

Suzy Kassem poetry - Maxims of Medicine

Before you examine the body of a patient,
Be patient to learn his story.
For once you learn his story,
You will also come to know
His body.
Before you diagnose any sickness,
Make sure there is no sickness in the mind or heart.
For the emotions in a man’s moon or sun,
Can point to the sickness in
Any one of his other parts.
Before you treat a man with a condition,
Know that not all cures can heal all people.
For the chemistry that works on one patient,
May not work for the next,
Because even medicine has its own
Before asserting a prognosis on any patient,
Always be objective and never subjective.
For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life,
But then later discovering that he will lose,
Will harm him more than by telling him
That he may lose,
But then he wins.
