A sufi-meditation. Sitting very still, with all attention focused in the center of the chest, and slowly surrendering and realizing that:
instead of looking, you are being observed;
instead of hearing, you are being heard;
instead of touching, you are being touched;
instead of tasting, you are food for God
and are being tasted.
So make yourself good tasting.
Finally allow yourself to be breathed.
Abandon yourself completely in trust, and in the realization that you are powerless in the face of God, the First Cause.
- A sufi exercise taught to the author Reshad Feild of The Last Barrier: A Journey into the Essence of Sufi Teachings by his sufi master, simply introduced as Hamid in the book. May God be pleased with them both.
Currently reading this great book where Reshad Feild recorded his enthralling journey of body and spirit as well as his story of all struggles toward the spiritual light with a sufi master. It’s such a good read! The best part is that the book I am holding in my hand is the lived experience of the author which makes the reading experience even more alive. I dearly wish you read this book: The Last Barrier too!
