Wisdom from a Sufi

Post by happyrain » Fri Jun 07, 2019 6:19 am

"The spiritual path is easiest if there is not something pulling one from behind; and that force is the life in the world, one's friends, surroundings, acquaintances, and one's foes. Remain, therefore, in the world as a traveler making a station on his way. Do all the good you can to serve and succor humanity, but escape attachment. By this in no way will you prove to be loveless. On the contrary, it is attachment which divides love, and love raised above attachment is like a rain from above nourishing all the plants upon the earth."

Beautiful words from a Student of Love.

What does it mean to you?

In the pursuit of Love & service our ego is often humbled by a daunting reality of not knowing how long anyone is to be in our lives- with a sincere effort we give the best we can and learn to cherish the experience.

Well it mostly means I'm incredibly grateful you introduced me to the wisdom of Hazrat Inayat Khan. My best aspirations are always reinforced by his teachings, Eric. Thank you!

Thank you Welles. I am so glad you relish in the wisdom too. Hazrat Inayat Khan is someone I've only discovered after hearing the word Sufi in a dream. Though I am not the greatest student, I know without a doubt he is my teacher. Peculiar that I do not get to see him in the living flesh... But Inayat Khan himself has said that people tend to get more respect only after they've passed... An interesting insight to human esteem. I also believe our separation has something to do with the ten sufi principles in recognizing that there is only One Teacher- One Ideal, One religion... This is a part of my lesson... Still, I feel so much Love and appreciation for this man that he is very much Alive.

Only happy tidings for you my friend.
