From A Year With Rumi, Daily Readings translated by Coleman Barks:
The way you make love
is the way God will be with you.
*This is Rumi's variation on the golden rule.
It has given me pause.
Thank you, Julie, for making a gift of this book some years ago.
You've given me many gifts! and I haven't kept up the balance from my end.
I'm concerned that this may be one of the stories of my life ...
I hope not.
