Ten Sufi Thoughts

These comprise all the important subjects with which the inner life of man is concerned:

One: There is one God, the Eternal, the Only Being; none else exists save God.

Two: There is one Master, the Guiding Spirit of all souls, who constantly leads all followers towards the light.

Three: There is one Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature, which truly enlightens all readers.

Four: There is one Religion, the unswerving progress in the right direction towards the ideal, which fulfills the life's purpose of every soul.

Five: There is one Law, the law of Reciprocity, which can be observed by a selfless conscience together with a sense of awakened justice.

Six: There is one human Brotherhood, the Brotherhood and Sisterhood which unites the children of earth indiscriminately in the Fatherhood of God.

Seven: There is one Moral Principle, the love which springs forth from self-denial, and blooms in deeds of beneficence.

Eight: There is one Object of Praise, the beauty which uplifts the heart of its worshipper through all aspects from the seen to the unseen.

Nine: There is one Truth, the true knowledge of our being within and without which is the essence of all wisdom.

Ten: There is one Path, the annihilation of the false ego in the real, which raises the mortal to immortality and in which resides all perfection.
