If one chooses the Way of the system, if it is done according to the System, then it takes a long time. If one chooses. The Way of Love, it does not take long , relatively. But it is difficult. Life become very sad. No joy. Thorns everywhere.this has to be crossed. Then all of a sudden there will be flowers and sunshine. But the road has to be crossed first. There is nothing which can be done about it…..

There is a lovely hadith I read over the course of my studies in Sufism. God tells the Prophet Mohammad: Whoever seeks Me will find Me. Whoever I love, I will kill , and Whoever I kill, his blood money will I pay, I Myself and his blood money. It highlights for me the reality of the path. In Sufism love is something being sentiments and feeling. Love is a divine attraction, the drawing of the lover by God towards God. This has been described as a love that comes like a raging flood and destroys everything in its way, and carries the Sufi away.
