Sufism is deep engagement with ordinary life. But the product of that engagement often seems extraordinary to most people. The contents of this book affirm that a living form of Sufism is extant, moving with the currents of culture and human destiny.A Sufi is the personification of complete inner development and is in this sense invisible to non-Sufis. A Sufi may be your neighbor next door, the postman, a city official, or an ace auto mechanic.The seeker of transcendent states of mind may too easily forget that his true attainment begins with the most profoundly mundane kind of self-knowledge. Here is where the safeguards are required. Sufism will help readers to first monitor their inner impulses and seek outside information from appropriate sources.
