When you seek God, seek Him in your heart – He is not in Jerusalem, nor in Mecca, nor in the hajj.
~ Yunus Emre
Everything God created is good. We were all created pure, as pure souls made out of light. God didn’t create any bad people. He pushed out all the darkness and kept all the goodness. So, tell yourself, ‘Now, if I bring in the darkness, I’ll just be taking back what God pushed away. But if I can avoid doing that, nothing but goodness will remain in me.’ Therefore, the question to ask is: ‘Since we were all created good, can I stay good? Can I be good?’ That’s what every human being should strive for.
~ M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
The Path is not to be found anywhere expect in human service.
The Sufi action is invisible. Its literature, while vital, is not sacred.
‘Sacred is that which cannot be destroyed.’
~ Idries Shah
A wise man always has something to say, whereas a fool always needs to say something.
~ Hazrat Ali
“The words ‘I am…’ are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to. The thing you’re claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you.”
~ A. K. Kitselman
