I love existence, for you are the Soul of existence. Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh
Present Master Dr. Alireza Nurbakhsh
It has been said that chivalry means meritorious giving without seeing yourself as the giver.
It has, furthermore, been said that chivalry means to reveal God’s affluence but secretive about one’s affliction.
Then he said, “The reality of chivalry is where you accept the apologies others give for whatever reason. The person who associates with chevaliers without having it will become quickly disgraced.”
Except from the book of Chivalry

The Dance of the Sufi
The enrapturing of the Sufis by God, or rather the ‘pull’ of God, keeps the Sufi continually in spiritual inner dance and movement. Whenever a wave of such Divine rapture strikes the heart of the Sufi, it creates turbulence in his or her inner being. This, in turn, causes the body to move. Upon seeing such movement, non-Sufis have often supposed that the Sufi is dancing. In reality, however, it is the waves of the Ocean of the Truth that are tossing and turning the anchorless vessel that is the heart of the Sufi.
