The Path to Union is not what we think it is…

Khizr
The path to union is not as we assumed.
The world of the soul is not as we thought.
The source from which Khizr drank the water of life
Is in our own house, but we have buried it. 
~ Shaykh Sadruddin Qunawi

When you eventually see through the veils to how things really are, you will keep saying again and again, “This is certainly not like we thought it was.”

    • Dear Sonya,

      Thank you for your visit and comments.

      I personally believe that there are people, (whether or not they are still physically embodied is essentially irrelevant), rare but available, who point to the straightest path. Shaykh Sadruddin Qunawi, Mawlana Rumi, and others are some of these people. In a world seemingly gone mad, I think seeking them out can be an act of reaching toward a greater sanity.

      All good wishes,

  1. Thank you for always reminding us of the profound knowledge of the light filled soul. And as you say ‘in a world gone mad’ these reminders are timely. Its sad that the world fights as – you and me – focuses on the most superficial of idiotic differences when the flow of the spirit in all humanity is the same.

    • Dear Anjali,

      Thank you for your visit and comments here today.

      I like, admire, and agree with what you share here. I particularly like how you said this: “the flow of the spirit in all humanity is the same.”

      Thank you! 🙂

      All good wishes,

      robert
