Here are some quotes that encapsulate Omar’s approach
Become who you are
We all hunger to let out more, to feel more, that is what searching is about
The present can change the past. And the future can change the present
The problem is not the problem. The problem is coping with the problem. All change ventures into the unknown and needs to be done with acceptance and love
To be who you are in the presence of another is itself a healing experience
The experience isn’t pleasant but the sharing of it is wonderful
To give as much as needed and as little as possible
