"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
