    1 thought on “Chasing Rumi: A Fable About Finding the Heart's True Desire

    1. “This is a fable about finding the heart's true desire and it is elegantly written with not a spare word. Moving fluidly from start to finish it connects directly with your consciousness in a way similar to music. Housden uses his past experiences as a leader of tours to sacred sites; we feel we are in the hands of a sensitive cartographer of the the world that Celtic mystics talk about. The author also gives a subtle and sensitive delineation of the mystical journey of the soul. Many readers [...]

    2. Pemuda itu tinggal di kota terindah di Eropa, memiliki pekerjaan yang disukai sekaligus menjamin kehidupannya, serta dia dapat bekerja sekaligus mencari pahala. Georgiou ini pelukis orang-orang suci dalam ajaran Katholik ngomong-ngomong. Semua keindahan duniawi itu ternyata belum mampu menerbitkan kepuasan batin dalam diri si pemuda. “Betatapun indahnya dunia, tak ada satu pun yang mampu mengisi semua kehampaan ini,” keluhnya. Hatinya tersentil ketika temannya membacakan satu petikan dari sy [...]

    3. Short book. Can be read in a day, but I read it in two.Chasing Rumi is similar to The Alchemist in that a young man gets wanderlust in the realm of spiritual truths. Although the story had already been played (I prefer Coelho's Alchemist), Housden snuck in a rather interesting Sufi technique: Drawing one's attention to the heart through the breath.If meditation is our practice and we've gotten 'good enough' to be in a perpetual meditative state, then lots of wacky stuff starts to happen if we st [...]

    4. I could feel where Georgiou was when I allowed it to happen. The book has moved me forward, not through it's depth or Roger Housden's literary prowess necessarily, but by reminding me of something I have allowed to dissipate. That's it really, it has reignited my desire for true beauty, reminded me of the truth that is. There is so much more than what is here in front of our eyes. We just need to see.I also like how this book came into my life, as it proves a prevalent point in the novel of how [...]

    5. "wa pikiranmu turun ke hati"buku tipis ini terselip di rak yang nyaris tidak terlihat saat dulu ditemukandan langsung saya beli. ternyata saya kembali membaca buku yang tepat sesuai mood kali ini, dengan beberapa bagian yang seolah berbicara pada saya. endingnya memang terkesan terlalu cepat. terlalu singkat. dengan beberapa point yang sebetulnya akan lebih menarik jika dikembangkan lebih jauh. tapi dilihat dari sisi ide dan tema, saya sudah cukup merasa dapat 'teman'. meski hanya lewat fiksi. i [...]

    6. tag sale bookvery quick readingone night/sitting cute storycould have been much longer and deeperthis is almost a very nicely thought out outline for a much fuller bookbut would appeal to most folks attention spans around meI liked it and have enjoyed thinking back on parts of it since i read it few days agonow just sad. have no good books to read, or so it seems, am sure it's a lazy lie.But am wanting to just have time to sit with a book and

    7. If you like Coelho and his musings on taking on the road to self-discovery and following the heart's desires, you'll like this book too. For me, this one's even better than Coelho's though because it's shorter, yet filled with just the right amount of details and peppered with bits of Islamic icon Jelaluddin Rumi's engaging poetry

    8. A quick story about a young man's journey to the tomb of Rumi, but more about his journey inward. The theology is blended from multiple religions, and the storyline highlights the significance of women as a bridge for the relationship to God. Definitely some summative lines that are worth remembering (or at least keeping the book for, for reference).

    9. Really enjoyed this brief fable. This was the same philosophy as in Deepak Chopra's book- The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire : Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence. All emotion, all action stems from the outer oneness- be open to it and all works out. Also made me want to read Rumi. F2F Discussion group enjoyed it.

    10. OK, I checked it out cuz it was a cute little book with a pretty cover. I learned about Sufism and Rumi and Turkey and art from this book. It's honestly not superior writing, but it's still a good plot, interesting setting, and a sweet story.

    11. A tale about a man who reads a poem that touches his soul, and embarks on a journey to visit the poet's grave. Along the way he meets many interesting people, does many interesting things, as well as managing to find himself and his true love.

    12. I have had this book a long time. But, it wasn't til after reading a lot of other books that I was ready to read this one and grasp what it was about. I really enjoyed it a lot. I read it in a few hours.

    13. I had a hard time keeping my mind on this one. It started to make more sense closer to the end of the book, though. I was just too distracted during this read. Hard to read in an airline terminal.

    14. A very earnest but ultimately silly New Agey story about a Greek living in Florence who goes on a spiritual journey through Greece & Turkey, visiting holy men (& one woman) who inspire him.

    15. I highly recommend reading The Alchemist (Paolo Coelho), Learning to Walk in the Dark (Barbara Brown Taylor), and then this book, Chasing Rumi, in that order! So great!

    16. Was a recommendation since I enjoyed the Alchemist. While ok, the book did not drawn me in and was not as enjoyable.

    17. Saya baca buku ini pas SMA. udah agak lupa-lupa inget. Yang saya inget cuma efek; gila, ini buku susah gue pahamin. lol
