My inner and outer life has taken some severe turns in the last few years and during illness two years ago I started incorporating many different meditation techniques into my Sufi / Islamic practices including Mindfulness and others. This has led to some serious re-examining of my original motivations for joining the Sufi order. Now, after absorbing teachings and talks of over 30 speakers (Conscious.TV / Buddha at the Gas Pump etc) I am exploring the comparisons between Sufism and non-duality, listening to a lot of Tony Samara and Bentinho Massaro, writing a book of my life experiences and starting a wholefood business.
Something revelatory happens nearly every day. This morning during meditation I realised my previous negative view of energy being “too dissipated” (resulting in a huge amount of creative projects) can actually be seen, through choice alone, as a fantastically good thing. It’s only my inner view that requires changing.
This simple, profound approach can provide the backbone to one’s complete life-view and it is this which I wish to share and explore with anyone and everyone, everywhere, in my work, my writings and personal life. I believe my life story as an honest example, could provide some insights for others.
