The journey into the unknown and unseen world of our soul needs one who has
mastered this territory and has Divine permission to guide others.
The true guide is a Master who does know your destination and can take you there.
They know more than you about where you are going because they have been given the
vision to see, the wisdom to understand and the integrity to be completely trustworthy.
They know the pitfalls and dangers and will keep you safe. They know what you uniquely
require to succeed. Those who possess real wisdom may be qualified to act as tour
guides for other human beings and assist them in understanding the complexities of
human existence and one’s relationship to the Universe.
The Need for a Living Guide –
If one is separated from his Shaykh by death or other circumstances, it becomes necessary
to find a living guide who can complete the work of the first master. The path is not the goal,
but the means to reach the goal. Holding onto the attachment to a master, who is no longer
present, usually represents an unrealistic expectation and false hope.
The Signs of Mastery –
The main indication of mastery is that when you sit with a master you feel a breeze of faith,
spiritual pleasure. He does not speak except about God. He is always advising the good.
You will benefit from being in his company as you benefit from his words. You will benefit
when you are far from him as you benefit when you are near him. You must see among his
disciples the picture of faith, sincerity, humbleness and piety (God-consciousness) and
you must remember, when you are mixing with the highest state of love, truth and
deference to others.
You must see that his followers represent all different kinds of people in the community.
To accomplish this you will find here teachers providing students with spiritual
tools based on principles of the Sufi tradition, that students can then apply
as they fit to make better decisions that not only benefit themselves but at the same time
help make the world better.
