      June Supporter Giveaway   06/01/2019

      For the June giveaway I chose the theme 'The Gift of Reading.' One that I think we can all appreciate! The winner will receive four books, including:     The Gifts of Reading by Robert MacFarlane - 'An essay on the joy of reading, for anyone who has ever loved a book.'   plus three little short but (hopefully) thought provoking reading gifts...   The Reckoning by Edith Wharton - 'Two moving stories of love, loss, desire and divorce, from one of the great chroniclers of nineteenth-century New York life.' Create Dangerously by Albert Camus - 'Camus argues passionately that the artist has a responsibility to challenge, provoke and speak up for those who cannot in this powerful speech, accompanied here by two others.' It Was Snowing Butterflies by Charles Darwin - 'A selection of Darwin's extraordinary adventures during the voyage of the Beagle.'    As always, supporting members will be entered automatically into the random draw at the end of the month. If you want to be entered into the draw but don't support yet, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum   Good luck

Rumi is a real treasure. His perspective on the world for someone who lived in 13th century is fascinating. What's your favourite poems of him?

Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi was a Persian poet, an Islamic dervish and a Sufi mystic. His discipline and wisdom have crossed all national and ethnic borders ever since the 13th century.

Here are my favourite quotes of him:

 

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.

What you seek is seeking you.

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
