“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” (Rumi)
People always ask these questions:
- What is the meaning of life?
- Why do we exist in this world?
- How can we be happier and more peaceful?
These questions are perhaps the most difficult questions which asked in this life and a difficult journey awaits a person who wants to find the answer to these questions. One of these ways is Sufism. Sufism is a quest. It is the search for God and the meaning of life. Because, according to Sufism, the person who discovers God also discovers the meaning of life.
According to Sufism, people came from the God. The real home of people is the Creator. The person who manages to return to this house is the person who also achieves eternal happiness.
Religions or ideologies do not matter to Sufism. All people are equal and all people must embark on an inner journey of discovery to achieve eternal happiness.
“Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving — it doesn’t matter,
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times,
Come, come again, come.” (Rumi)
However, there may be some obstacles on the way. The ego is one of the largest and most powerful obstacle. The key to achieving peace and happiness is to tame the ego.
