Sometimes I am most touched by such messages concerning my blog. I am posting this message not because I want to beat my own drum but to share the beauty of this email and how Sufism connects the world and humans estranged from each other:

Subject: The Birth of the Spirit out of the Agonies and Yearnings of the Flesh

“You have no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right. What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean. Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these. So- I’ve brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and remember me!”

Salaam, Peace & Blessings Dear Brother,

My name is Felix and I’m from Israel. My journey brought me to Sufism some many years ago, as a direct result of my interest in Dervishes, Sadhus and Wandering Mystics. As a Humanist, I was amazed to find out how rich and infinite the spirit of Sufism is…

Life is not easy where I am right now. The middle-east is burning in fire of hatred and disillusions. But – One day, this dark age will be over & I truthfully hope to see the world become a much better place to raise our children based on values of Love, Respect and Brotherhood.

I’ve found your outstanding blog + photographs on the web the other day, and would like to kindly thank you for your priceless & beautiful deeds. Wonderful & Kindhearted people like you give me great hope for a much better & brighter future for humanity.

Your journey is an inspiration – may peace, love and light be upon you.

While our background is very different, I humbly feel as if we are all interconnected – we are all brothers, come what may – the whole world is connected through an infinite life line. The human spirit is eternal.

“We are the flute, our music is all Yours;
Your wind invisible sweeps us through the world”

Sincerely & Respectfully Yours.

“Human beings are like the three moths before a candle flame. the first approaches and says Myself, I know love The second brushes the flame with its wings and says Myself, I know the burning of love The third throws itself into the Heart of the flame and is consumed. It alone knows true love!”
