I haven't read it but am looking forward to it. The below quote from the book made me think. Any thoughts? Stop looking for something out there And begin seeing within. Open your arms if you want an embrace. Break the earthen idols and release the radiance. —Rumi, from 'Empty the Glass of your Desire'

I haven't heard of it, but it sounds like it might contain some good advice for one of my friends... not for me, I'm perfect already! (Forgive me if this gets posted twice... I tried to preview my answer and it disappeared!)

Hi raydene! I haven't read the book yet. But I do think that the quote is really nice. I believe that we all should first start rediscovering ourselves and what is within. Rediscover our true self, our strength and weaknesses and our joy. Know the true you. Take Care and Have a beautiful day! God Bless you my friend.

Sounds like some pretty good philosophy. I am looking forward to some good reading time this summer. Whenever I am not out in my yard.
