Rumi wrote: 'Love came and became like blood in my body.' Love came to Vincent Parmentola and became words on these pages. Diary of a Holy Fool is a great series of spiritual journeys filled with Love, Light, Poetry, the deepest Wisdom, and a map to the best states to live in: Fulfillment and Nirvana. Read and Reap. - Michael Modzelewski, author of INSIDE PASSAGES and ANGELES CREST In Diary of a Holy Fool, author Vincent Parmentola expresses his spiritual insights in a language rich in prose and poetry designed to capture the profound meaning of his phemenal adventures while on the path of self-discovery. Inspired by the words of Jalaluddin Rumi, the great Persian poet (1207-1273), Parmentola traces his journey to find spiritual perfection and closeness to God. The path of enlightenment is a journey of the spirit and of discovering one's true self, the authentic being that abides at the very center of our consciousness and attempts to answer the eternal questions: Who am I? What is the purpose in my being here? This is a journey of wonder and surprises consisting of peaks, valleys, and the occasional plateau, when thing seems to be happening, at least to the conscious mind. Parmentola recalls a time when outward success as a fashion designer was a distracting camouflage for the discontent rumbling-a rumbling that led to his discovery of Rumi and the beginning of his journey of self-discovery. By sharing his exciting personal experiences and thoughts in Diary of a Holy Fool, Parmentola hopes to enliven, motivate, and encourage those with the desire to undertake their own journey of spiritual awakening.
