Intellectually, most of us have some notion that the Essence of Spirit is contained within us. God created the human being in His image, as a reflection of His Light.
This is one of the core concepts in Sufism that lies at the foundation of why we were created and why we are here in this life on this earth.
Nura Laird, UOS Faculty and chair of Department of Peacemaking, recorded this short teaching for us a while back, which explains perspectives of this teaching according to the Sufi principles.
I thought you might enjoy this today.
May you have a blessed weekend, seeing and knowing the Light of God in yourself and in all that you see.
Mastura Graugnard on behalf of all your friends and family at UOS
