One relatively misunderstood spiritual path today is the way of the Sufi. As a longtime journeyer on the path of Sufism, the principles and practices I received in my Sufi context were those of Unity, the loving nature of the Creator, the importance of living a balanced life, the practices of prayer, meditation, and of being in service.

Dearest friend of many lifetimes: I have been waiting for an inspirational moment to write to you and now the feeling is right...
The underlying condition of illness reflects spiritual conflict. There is a basic element of feeling separated from Self, the Divine, God, the Source, the Perfect One, Higher Self, whatever name or label is given to being connected and in tune with one’s true nature.
Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual distress results from being disconnected with one’s higher self. This work is an alternative path for people who have lost their spiritual way.
The great spiritual author Alan Watts had a wonderful image. He said when a boat goes through the water, it leaves a wake in the water as it passes through. The way we understand things psychologically would be that the wake actually creates the boat, that the past is what creates the present moment. But of course, we know that the wake isn’t creating the boat; the boat is creating the wake. It’s the present moment that is creating the past. The present moment is what’s knifing through the water and the wake is just the recording of the present moment moving farther and farther into the past.

Years of research and personal experimentation led me to the black light of consciousness.
Spirituality is a very important and integral component of health care. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked in modern day medical practice. An individual’s spirituality is at the very cornerstone of health and well-being because it facilitates the holistic integration of mind, body and spirit. A person can and often does have a spiritual dimension to life that is not expressed in or related to religions doctrine.
Beliefs create our reality. They may be your interpretation of who you are or your interpretation of what others think of you. Beliefs are manifested in the conscious and subconscious mind. The mind must be free of certain beliefs before insight can occur. A quality of this insight is that one acquires the ability to live in the present moment and see the ‘whole’, rather than the ‘parts’.
In today’s societies it is fashionable to be in pursuit of enlightenment. There is an incredible amount of diversity available today, and most seekers are scattered not knowing where to look next, but always searching for the missing key. Of course, it is OK to study all the systems you would like. That is your free will, and there is certainly some value to it.
The “Mirroring Theory” states that what is presented before you is your own reflection. The law of parsimony states that what we create within us is always mirrored outside of us and reflected back to us. As well as the physiological law of paramagnetism states, “you attract to you what you are giving off.”
