Description from the publisher: “Man is not even a dot in terms of cosmic space, and he is not even the blink of an eye in cosmic time. This picture of the universe would crush man to nothingness, would annihilate him instatly, were it not for the following subtle fact: outer than the outermost, inner than the innermost, beyond the beyond, with the within, if God Almighty, Lord o fthe universe, Lord of all the worlds: (from the text).The teachings of Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, offer a startling resolution to many contemporary problems. This book outlines the main tenets of Sufism as taught by the Sufi masters of Central Anatolia. A discussion of Sufi psychology and its seven levels of selfhood heralds the possibility of psychological evolution for all human beings to higher stages of consciousness. Using the promise of the Sufi vision, the author builds a bridge between the West and Islam.
