You Don't Have To Be Sufi,
This review is from: Sufi Book of Life: 99 Pathways of the Heart for the Modern Dervish (Paperback)
This is a collection of ancient and contemporary meditation stories, with bits of poetry here and there. Each of the more than 90 stories addresses everyday issues, from friendship and freedom, to being present or pain and loss.
Stories that include donkeys are frequent and one humorous favorite is Mastering Life (p210) in which a man is thinking aloud, feeling good about his accomplishments. "It was... when I was in my glory that the donkey responded with the noise you heard as if to say `Here's what I think of that!"
Each story begins with a purpose and ends with meditation. The book is ideal for busy types who want a quick, albeit deep and philosophical shot of spirituality integrated into each day. It is a pick any page anywhere reader that also lends itself to lingering, relaxed reflection.
