Spiritual guidance is the art of making a being become what s/he is.
—Towards the One
The Shaykh is the human soul released into freedom
Showing forth the image of divinity
That is hidden in humanity
that sacred image never tarnished.
—Countenance and Heart of the Shaykh in “Atom from the Sun of Knowledge” by Lex Hixon Nur Al Jerrahi
The Glory of God is a human being who is fully alive!
—St. Irenaeus (via lychnikon)
