Sixth Rule of Love

Dear readers,

Today we shall see the sixth rule of Love from the novel Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak.

Loneliness and solitude are two different things. When you are lonely, it is easy to delude yourself into believing that you are on the right path. Solitude is better for us, as it means being alone without feeling lonely. But eventually it is the best to find a person who will be your mirror. Remember only in another person’s heart can you truly see yourself and the presence of God within you.

I really like the distinction between loneliness and solitude. But, the best part, to me is about the person/people who will be your mirror. This gives me hope because I can be in the world while being with God simultaneously.

Thanks for reading.
