What is Sufism?

I have heard that the ecstasy of the “wearers of wool” comes from finding the taste of Love.

That’s Sufism, nothing more.

Sufism is nothing but a path, It is just this clear road, and nothing more.

What is Sufism?

Good character and awareness of Love.

The cure for hatred and vengeance.

That’s Sufism, nothing more.

What is Sufism?

The heart attaining tranquility which is the root of religion.

That’s Sufism, nothing more.

What is Sufism?

Contemplation that travels to the Divine throne, a far-seeing gaze.

That’s Sufism, and nothing more.

Sufism is keeping one’s distance from imagination and supposition.

Sufism is surrendering one’s soul to the care of the inviolability of Love.

Sufism is the path of faith and affirmation of unity.

It is an incorruptible religion.

That’s Sufism, nothing more.

Sufism is a smooth and illuminated path, 

It is the way to the most exalted Paradise.

That’s Sufism, and nothing more. 

– mevlana Rumi 

Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.
