Are You Looking for the Truth?

Does it make sense to you…looking for the truth in a world based on lies?

We live in a world where truth has become taboo. It is shunned and ridiculed and discouraged. Today, we must believe in the ‘official’ version of things. Materialism surpasses all sense of morality. If you are rich and have a high level of consumption (a high lifestyle), you are respected no matter where the money is coming from. We are not interested in the Truth today, just in success. But success is impossible without knowing the Truth.

The most basic truth is the truth about ourselves – who are we? where do we come from and why? and where do we go when we die? Is there a God? And if there is, how can we know? How can we connect with the Supreme Being?

If some of the above questions are bothering you from time to time, congratulations! It means that the natural equipment that God had blessed you with is still working. There is an amber burried beneath the ashes, and you can light the fire of truth. If you want to know the truth, truly and sincerely, rest assured that you will find it.

In Sufi spirituality, your spirit is initiated by doing a breathing exercise that I call “Sufi Breathing”. It is known as Dhikr in Sufi Orders. The exercise awakens your inner self, your spirit, which then becomes capable of appreciating the Truth. As you follow the Sufi path, you keep moving closer to the Truth…or God.

In my book Gone Spiritual, I have described more details and have also written about how to practice Sufi Breathing. you can benefit from this irrespective of your race or religion. All you need to do is, want it.

Please download the book and feel free to share your thoughts and comments.

Definition of Spirituality

Spirituality Defined: Spirituality is the discipline that is practiced for achieving spiritual purification and enlightenment for the sole purpose of gaining cognizance of the Supreme Being.

Purpose of Spirituality: True Spirituality is the pursuit of God. Most of the versions of so called spirituality available in the market today are just products that you are expected to buy. They are not genuine and they don’t work. They may relax your mind or body to some extent (although I have my doubts about that), but they do nothing for the spirit. The spirit is energized when your only purpose is to find the Absolute Reality.

Spirituality Definition Explained: Spirituality presumes that a person is a combination of body and spirit. Certain exercises and meditations are prescribed to the seeker, which he or she can practice and awaken the spirit within him or her. In Sufi spirituality, the sole purpose of the seeker is to recognize and feel the Supreme Being – God or Allah. No other conditions are prescribed, such as change in belief or appearance. When the seeker practices the techniques, he or she intrinsically moves closer to the Truth, without anyone having to tell him or her anything.

What True Spirituality Can Do for You: Sincerity of purpose is necessary and the simple exercise has to be practiced daily for it to work. True spirituality does not aim at worldly gains, although everything follows when you get connected with the Eternal and Supreme Power. Allah is the Cause of all causes and once you strive to link with that Supreme Being, secrets of the world unravel themselves before you. True spirituality brings peace and contentment in this world, and eternal happiness in the next.

True Spirituality

Practicing Spirituality: Spirituality is not about definitions and explanations. True spirituality is a practice that you have to practically do in order to achieve results. Practicing Sufi spirituality is very simple. There is basically a straightforward breathing exercise that you practice twice a day to awaken your spirit. Once your spirit is rejuvenated, you don’t only feel a deep sense of satisfaction, but also begin to see that there is really a Supreme Power, God, Allah. By continuing to practice your spirituality, your spirit continues to grow, gaining spiritual powers and becoming one with the Ultimate Unity.

A Book about True Spirituality

New Age Spirituality and Mystic Islam

by Aves E

What is New Age Spirituality?

New age is the emerging face of the world after the demise of capitalism. Capitalism has its economic system based on consumption as the sole criteria for progress and success. The more a person (or a nation) consumes, the more successful he or she is considered. With no spiritual side to guide it, capitalism has become unstoppable and is rushing to its own end. The world financial system is on its last throws, and people in the western world have become wary of the known ways and doctrines.

New Age spirituality is an insidious movement to seek the Truth on your own. This DIY spirituality trend stems from people’s estrangement from what they believed in during the days of secularism…their governments, their economic and financial systems and their sense of security. With shaken belief in secularism and its sub-systems, many people are turning back to religion. Many others, on the other hand, are skeptical. They believe that they can initiate their own spirituality and go looking for the Truth themselves.

Hundreds, if not thousands of books on new age spirituality tell you a thousand ways to rejuvenate, revive and recharge your spirit. Everything from candles to crystals to stones and pebbles is associated with spirituality. People have supposedly near death experiences and psychic visions and describe the Reality to you in may different version. But how can one know for oneself what the Truth is?

Is Muslim Mysticism the Spirituality for the New Age?

There are two problems with all the “true” spirituality brands that are apparently more popular…namely Zen, Buddhist, Hindu and others.

a) They don’t deliver practical results.All they do is use beautiful words and relaxing techniques. They do things for your mind or body, but nothing really for the spirit. They don’t make you feel one with the Eternal, which is the primary aim of spirituality. They don’t let you see God intrinsically.

b) They don’t have a system of beliefs and practices. They lack the structure that a person looking for guidance requires. They are just stagnant set of rituals, showing you no path ahead that you can follow for continuous spiritual progress. A progress which you yourself know you are making…beyond doubt.

Mystic Islam is the most powerful and the only true set of spiritual practices that make you see the Truth for yourself. Muslim mystics do not require you to believe in any particular faith for starting on the path of spiritual enlightenment. All you need is an earnest desire to seek the Truth.

A Book about True Spirituality

Muslim Mysticism – the Spiritual Side of Islam

by Aves E

Islam and mysticism are like body and soul. Unfortunately, even very few Muslims know that. Mysticism has been termed as Tasawwuf in Islam, and is the spiritual side of Islam.

Islamic mysticism and Muslim spirituality are extremely powerful ways to go spiritual. Sufis in Islam have always been known as reformers and people with special powers. These special powers are blessed to the Sufis as a result of their efforts of spiritual purification. After years of meditation and breathing exercises under the direction of a spiritual guide, one can achieve a level of spiritual enlightenment where he or she becomes cognizant of the Truth. That is the basic (and only) goal of Islamic Mysticism. When you find God, you find everything.

Sufi guides are like lighthouses guiding lost souls to God, the Supreme Being, the Ultimate Power. Spirituality and mysticism in Islam travels through Sufi Orders. These spiritual Orders comprise of noble spiritual masters with extraordinary powers .  Sufi Orders descend from generations to generations and are connected all the way.

Sufi spirituality is true spirituality, and you don’t need me or someone else to tell you that. You intrinsically know when you practice the spiritual exercises that I have mentioned in my book. If you are earnest, you will find these techniques to be the simplest and the most effective way to achieve self empowerment.

Mystic Islam is no philosophy or theology. In fact, there are no words in Muslim mysticism. There are no preconditions for practicing it, except that you need to have a need to find the Truth. If you are a person who ponders into the creation of the universe and our purpose in it, you will find Islamic spirituality to be the easiest and most powerful way to awaken your spirit.

A Book about True Spirituality

There are thousands of books on spirituality and may be hundreds on Sufi spirituality. Very few of them are written by a practicing Sufi. I have the honor of being the humble servant of my esteemed spiritual teacher and guide, and belong to the exalted Avesi order of Islamic mysticism.

What is True Spirituality?

What is the reality of spirituality? you ask; spirituality, my dear reader, is the Reality.

by Aves E

Many of us are not even aware if the spirit exists or not. Oblivious of this eternal and supernatural part of our existence, we neglect our spirit until it is paralyzed and loses its ability to see the metaphysical Reality. Losing touch with the Eternal is like denying our own existence. By denying the Reality, we wrong none other than our own selves. In order to actualize our full potential as human beings, we must maintain our spiritual health.

Living happily without a purpose is like traveling without where you are going and who you are. Could you be comfortable in such a situation? (imagine being Jason Bourne!) Exactly. Have you ever wondered why we feel restless or depressed when apparently everything is fine? And when things aren’t going well, it’s only natural to be worried. Yet sometimes petty things seem to worry us too much, while we conveniently ignore the undeniable Reality.

The void inside you has to be filled, and it can only be filled by Love of the Eternal, the Absolute, the Real, the Truth…Allah, God, Eshwar, the Supreme Being or any other Name you have for that One and Only God. Love is the way to the Reality and you can only feel this Love when your spirit is purified.

By practicing the powerful breathing exercise and meditation that I have described in this book, you can jumpstart your spirit in days. You will not become superman, but may actualize the full potential of your human existence, and become someone far superior to superheroes…superior even to the angels.

It doesn’t matter if you believe in spirituality or not. The techniques in this book work regardless of your creed, age or gender. The book goes beyond words and  includes metaphysical elements that work for you as you go through it.

Paperback Edition Published on Createspace

I was pleased with Createspace services. They published my book without hassle and delay. They were even faster than the Kindle eBook version, which is still hanging in the Amazon servers.

Defining spirituality is not enough. It needs to be practiced more than talked about. Gone Spiritual may not be wordy, but it hits the mark directly. It defines and explains spirituality, but more importantly, it tells you ways to enhance your spiritual powers.

The book is available at https://www.createspace.com/4044751?ref=1147694&utm_id=6026. Kindle version is coming soon…https://www.createspace.com/4044751?ref=1147694&utm_id=6026
