Gold Digger Words

Gold Digger Words
of Hz. Mevlânâ Jelâleddin Rûm-î

'Gold Digger Words' are aphorisms of the Sufí of Konya.

At the occasion of the 800th birthday of the great Sufi, a commemorative was published in Turkey under the name ‘Hz. Mevlana´Dan Güzel Sözler’.

Eight years later a dear friend gave me a copy as a present, and I carried it with me, tried to understand the English translation in the original. 'Güzel Sözler' means ‘Beautiful Words’; and in the course of the first nine months of this year 2016 I began to wash out the meaning of these words, as the gold diggers did in the pioneer times of the USA.

My wish which goes with this book is simple; may we remember that we are human beings, deeper and more lively than that which sometimes appears as reality on the surface. Much joy exploring!
