~The Forty Rules of Love
Elif's book is described as a 'lyrical and imaginative novel that unfolds in two parallel narratives.' This astonishing novel parallels the life of the thirteenth century poet, Rumi and a modern day all American housewife, Ella. The theme of this book is woven around one of the most universal and epic themes in history; LOVE! Elif is able to bring to life Rumi's musings while animating the complexities of modern day living and loving. The questions always remain the same, 'Do you have the courage to undertake your transformation? Are you willing to bet everything on love? Are you willing to unlearn everything you know?'
One of the forty rules: "The quest for Love changes us. There is no seeker among those who search for Love who has not matured no the way. The moment you starts looking for Love, you start to change within and without."
In this beautiful month that celebrates LOVE, may you dive into LOVE- allowing it to deliciously change and ravage you! May you seek to know all possibilities with the eyes of LOVE. May LOVE light the lantern of your heart!
May You Sweetly Seek:)
