Book description
In Sufi circles they say, “There’s prayer, and a step up from that is meditation, and a step up from that is sohbet, or conversation.” The friendship of Rumi and Shams became a continuous conversation, in silence and words, presence talking to absence, existence to non-existence, periphery to center. Rumi’s poetry may be heard as eavesdro pping on that exchange.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This is a very philosophic poem...from a very religious man who has a connection to God that is surreal. He is saying that we are all in one, we are one with nature, the wind, the sun, the everything in the world. Some are given the ability to see what can't be seen or what can't be smelled or felt...but they know without actually knowing. It is a gift beyond what others know or will ever know. When a human realizes his connection and abiding to nature it makes them want to honor it because that was your beginning and will be your end. From the moment we are born until we die, our spirit and nature are formed from our existence of this world and the ideals our world teaches us. Some get it and sadly ...some don't. This man got it and he wanted us to know his thoughts and ideas. The rest of the book is poetry with stories of the Sufi poet Rumi and Shams.… (more)
