did not like it

I should have known anything Deepak Chopra put his name to would be drivel. It's like the bad poetry of a repressed teenager. I feel this and I feel that, blah blah blah. Free-association in all the wrong places. It does however come across as sincere (and, mercifully, terse).

I also feel like Rumi was not making full use of his time machine by using it to name several of his poems after 20th century pop hits, such as "Looking For Love", "Desire" and "Do You Love Me?".

Hold up! Before you go...I admit I found this poem-ender very beautiful:

All that is profane
Becomes sacred again.
