for seekers of the ultimate spiritual truth of oneness

Everything in creation has a purpose relevant to a specific situation that could lead the seeker of higher knowledge towards the ultimate spiritual truth of oneness. Thus our egotistic vices can indeed be stepping stones towards acting selflessly, spontaneously, and cheerfully with heightened awareness and good expectations in all situations. Indeed, all our mistakes can lead us towards the desired spiritual awakening the ultimate purpose in life: experiencing and knowing the universal oneness.

When consciousness transcends duality and recognises all-encompassing unity then all of these paradoxes and illusions are tolerated, for like the shell their purpose becomes clear.

Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri here meditates on today's dilemnas with aphoristic reflections that draw deeply on Sufism and a broad range of religious traditions; yet the work is fresh, vital and passionate. A remarkably attractive expression of the spiritual quest. ~ Prof. Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina
