To depart from the station of not knowing is freedom, and taking the journey towards the destination of understanding and knowledge is indeed peaceful and promising. Arriving at the city of Reality is to complete a spiritual journey in the framework of Sufism, and to discover one’s self, anew, is perhaps the greatest discovery of all. True understanding is acknowledging that the human individual is indeed significant in this design of Being. And, perhaps the greatest happiness is to know that we are not irrelevant particles in the whirlpool of the universe.
