I am a writer and know how seldom we hear about the impact of our work, so I wanted to share a sense of how much the Rumi cards have meant to me.
First, it is a truly beautiful set and one of the best short write-ups of Rumi that I've come across. I think I bought it shortly after it was released and have used it for big decision moments over the years. The answers I have received often were not what I wanted to hear but have always turned out to be wise and valuable.
The first time I was amazed by the result was during a rough patch in my marriage. I was ready to walk out the door when I decided to "ask Rumi." The answer was definitely NOT what I wanted to hear ... Rumi said, "Don't go anywhere, I beg you;" Shocked by this very specific answer, I stayed and we weathered the storm and celebrated our 22nd anniversary this month.
There are more stories like this but the important point is that I have come to rely on the wisdom gathered from these cards.
Eryk Hanut's "Rumi Cards" are a fabulous addition to my knowledge and practice in the work of Rumi. They are very appealing to the senses and help deepen my understanding of both Rumi and myself. And sometimes I am flat out stunned by the outcome. It feels like magic!
