Sufism is essentially an open worldview that provides a universal key to unlock the secrets of the Divine, irrespective of the particular religion or cultural background.
This is the form of Sufism that I explore.
Sufi Masters never, never refer to themselves as Masters.
They are travelers, messengers, and servants of the divine. They freely share their knowledge and wisdom in words the listeners can relate to and understand. They will use the scriptures of the people and nation where they are at the time.
Their view is Universal and not restricted by space or time. They will answer questions of the heart with candor, truth, and sincerity. They will not shout, debate, or argue a point; just point and show the way.
You may heed their words or follow the path you choose. But, when you are ready they will guide and instruct you.
