SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 22

WE ARE EXPLORING THE PRACTICE OF STILLNESS

When the mind and body are restless, nothing in life can be accomplished. Success is the result of control. … When one is restless, the conditions in life can make one experience the greatest discomfort, for there is no greater pain than restlessness. If there is any remedy for the lack of peace, it is spiritual progress.

That’s found in the Bowl of Saki for 11/12/15.  Hazrat Inayat Khan was a leading Sufi teacher of the twentieth century.  You can access hundreds of pages of Sufi wisdom at Wahiduddin’s Web.  I particularly appreciate his Ten Sufi Thoughts which demonstrate how the Sufis have been way ahead of many of us in the development of InterSpirituality.  You may want to see a more detailed version.
