"Carefully selected from a book of Rumiís teaching poems, these daily meditations are intended to add insight and, sometimes prodding, as we journey through our own consciousness in pursuit of spiritual growth. They cut through the clutter and confusion of the physical world and remind us that the choices we make are crucial and that the answers can be difficult but are always simple when we remember whatís at stake. Maryam Mafi knows Rumi as a realist whose writings bring us back to ourselves with unrelenting clarity. Her selection of Rumi verses, 365 of them, is inspired and heart-felt. Though they appear almost commonplace at first reading, your customers will find that if they meditate on them day by day as the title suggests, they will be lifted into a world where negativity has become a glaring disruption in an increasingly harmonious field. Itís a terrific introduction to Rumiís poetry and a serious nondenominational healing tool as well." -Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight, October 2014
Here is a daily companion that provides Rumiís wisdom and spiritual insight. These poems have been selected on the basis of the poignancy of their message and their relevance to contemporary life.

This is timeless wisdom translated for modern readers. It is a guide for meditation and a light switch that you can turn on to make your daily connection with spirit. Use these words as tools to better your life each day, to draw continued guidance, inspiration and spiritual wealth.
