At the heart of this form of Sufism lie the ideals of Love, Harmony and Beauty. The message of Western Sufism was brought to the Wes by the Indian mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan at the beginning of the last century.
Sufism is not a new religion. One of the central ideals of Sufism is the honouring of the Unity of the various religious paths. In Hazrat Inayat Khan's own words: "Sufism is only a light thrown upon one's own religion like a light brought into a room where everything one wants to be is to be found, and where the only thing that was needed was light."
At the beginning of the 90's I met Western Sufism through a book. I read through it in a wink, and could not believe my eyes. I read and could hardly believe that finally everything I had been looking for and of which I had given up hope of finding was laid down before me in this book. The book was called "The world of Thought" by Hazrat Inayat Khan. At the end of the book there were the 10 Sufi Thoughts and 3 Sufi Purposes

Sufi Mysticism is more for ZubinNur than the mystic branch of the Islam. It is something that has existed as long as there have been human beings. It is a doorway to what is probably the greatest gift that is hidden in everyone: our true strength.
