No Limit to Your Light

“There is no limit to your light, except the dark shadows of the ego cast upon the sky which we call self. Shake you soul! Awaken it from slumber! The time has come to awaken to your Divine being.”   

–Pir Vilayat Khan (Sufi Teacher and Head of the International Order of Sufis, 1916-2004)   

Nothing But Awareness


“Experience shows that the spirit is nothing but awareness. Whoever has greater awareness has greater spirit… When the spirit becomes greater and passes beyond all bounds, the spirits of all things become obedient to it.”   

–Rumi (a.k.a. Jalal al-Din Rumi, a.k.a. Mevlana Jelaluddin Rúmí, Afghan Sufi Poet, 1207-1273)
