Sufi Journey

Sufis say that we are being constantly bombarded by the ‘spiritual impulse’, the ‘source of being’ – that without this permeating us, we would simply not exist. It is an influence on all our lives, part of the fabric of existence, and it may be recognized by everybody at times as ‘something other’.

Sufism is concerned with the attunement of the individual to perceive this impulse.

To hear this subtle whisper, they say, we need to still the babble of what Sufis term our secondary selves, the bundle of conditioned impulses and instilled beliefs that we think of as our personalities, but are very far from being so.
