True and Living Spiritual Ecstacy
The purchase of this book is for a gift to an artist of great skill. When I saw this book I could only think of her because I was privy to her work in pastels water color and the like. The art here is so force full in delivering the message the idea the perception of the grandeur the magnificence of The Only Reality. I cannot read persian and I am learning arabic so the translation is impecable in the fact that the idea was conveyed to mind spirit. I learned about healing though Rumi was not a doctor I learned about true humanity though Rumi and Shams were wanderers nomads who were not bought or sold on material things. I gathered that their lofty spirits as the kind who saw all religions as one. It was identified clearly that there is but one religion. Yes and expressed so simply. The only real religion is love. Love for your fellow human being what you love for yourself. These ideas were expressed through art and words of the magnitude of pure clarity that i believe enlightenment permeated through this book for the comentator Coleman Barks and the illustrator Micheal Green.Was this review helpful?

I strongly believe that a book like this will be read for more generations to come as many people will desire to know more about Islam about Christianity even Buddhism. I believe when our perception as human beings is elevated like these men we may have a chance to construct a better world and reap better circumstances in our daily undertakings.
Yes the Prophet Muhammad Mustafah peace be upon him is hidden and aparent here in this work. The Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) personality of trustworthy honorable qualities pervades every letter. The seal of the Prophets message is seen here and the Spirit of Allah is felt in many instances and traces in this well composed book.
This book conveyed a true and living spiritual ecstacy that one can experience while they live. You do not have to die to go to heaven you can have that while you live by surrendering your will to do the will of Allah the only Reality.
I enjoyed this book greatly and I will still give it as a gift to the person I purchased it for. I must buy her yet another and give it out of love for the True Love The One Love. Thus it must be multiplied manifold to others.

funny how so many people are critical at all that flowering imagery. how can you get so grumpy over substantial rumi text and ecstatic art? anyways, if you have a deep soul that even scares you regarding the fathoms below yet explored, your eyes will be eating this stuff up...and your soul will digest it accordingly as you dream. time for supper! please enjoy the feast. and if no wine is spilled, it's not yet begun this book is an incredible wine stain on the stodgy academics and imam's of the worldWas this review helpful?
