Where are those beautiful Sufis?

I seek Sohbet in a place full of spiritual literalists who serve either their stomachs or their ecstasy; they are so deceived by their nafs that they think their service is to God rather than being the lover drawn to and within the beloved.

Dervishes why such silence?

I just wish to commune with those whom I’d receive as friends.
As I meditate daily I find myself lapsing into silence as well when confronted by those who follow trivial legalistic religions.
It is hard to find the initiated.

What’s the difference between a Sufi and a Gnostic who’s awakened or a Buddhist that’s enlightened or a Guru, we all marvel at the vistas we glimpse beyond the realms of action. In my opinion they have all transcended their cultures and religions.

If you know what I’m talking about please join me in a cup of tea, or a puff of smoke, or any glad poetry which speaks of love and eternity.

We are all living this life to learn and progress, so gain knowledge!
So I will not try and teach my mother how to suck eggs!
Will join you with a cup of tea, or a cup of life.
Best wishes to you in this life and the next.
Regards Keith

I shall put no label on this self
Nor dwell in false humility
I journeyed close, drawn by your call
To have a finer feel for thee.

I’m a small student.
Much like the humble ant.
I am not a dervish.
I need not dance for communion.
I take instructions from one known as the Qutbiyyat!

* I love a good cup of tea and revel in conversation as long as both are sweetened with the necter of “Gods Truth”.

A site for you if perchance you have the spare time to investigate.

Sufi in the house, represent!

Pull up a chair and join in the fun. “Marvel at the vista”, lovely phrase.
