The First Rule of Love

So, I have been reading Elif Shafak’s The Forty Rules of Love. It is a book about the companionship of a wandering Sufi dervish, Shams of Tabriz, and the poet Rumi. For the next forty days, I will post Shams’s forty rules one by one.  Enjoy!

“How we see God is a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. If God brings to mind mostly fear and blame, it means there is too much fear and blame welled inside us. If we see God as full of love and compassion, so are we.”
