In this episode, Jason RIgby picks up the topic of “Sufi” Mysticism. Sufism or Sufi Mysticism is a way of life. Sufism is a body of mystic practice, found mainly within Sunni factions of Islam but also within Shia Islam which is characterized by a focus on Islamic spirituality, ritualism, asceticism, and esotericism.
Western observers consider Sufism as mere “Islamic” mysticism that upholds crude practices, free from religion, and mostly composed of oriental stereotypes. Sufism emphasizes introspection and spiritual closeness with God. It coincides with the fundamental teachings of love. Just like in the Ra Material, it’s about love and light. It is more on the inward aspects or submission to enlightenment.
Beneath the background of this topic, Jason also discusses how sufism conflicts with the modern world. We are still suffering from the same institutional meltdowns that drags us backwards from progressiveness. Everything is based on the fear of others, hence, we cannot understand our spiritual affinity. Let us join Jason as he talks about Sufism.
