A Journey through Physicians of the Heart, Class #4 with Murshid Wali Ali,
May 21st (
the subject this month is LOVE.
From Physicians of the Heart: "Because all the divine qualities emerged out of the infinite heart of Allah as an
act of love, it would be no exaggeration to say that the entire collection of divine Names are members of the love
family. The Names featured in Chapter 6, Love's Mysteries, have been singled out because they particularly
emphasize divine love, and because they reveal the variety of its manifestation. Gouping them together as a
cluster will expose layers of meaning that will deepen our spiritual search."
morning Sufi meditations with Aqdas in SF will resume June 2nd.

The whole purpose of life is to make God a reality.
-- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan
Now life is nothing but God, and God's purpose in the creation is to know God's own Self and
love God's own Self and express God's own Self. This is the supreme purpose and the essence of purpose: it
is the seed of the purpose of every individual entity taking form on any plane.
-- Murshid Samuel L Lewis
