It is a world of Sufism, Islamic brotherhoods, and rich African culture that finds ample room for expression through the Islamic faith. There is indeed a form of sufism and a spirit of sufism, those who want the form must look to Islam, but those who seek the spirit... it is the "essential" truth taught in ALL religions and traditions... although it is often hard to see if you are focused on the form. this is "my" truth, revealed to me by the One Most High, according to my proportion. it has been put here to share the experience. it is not offered as a proof, or validation... simply an experience to be shared as i continue this journey. regardless of who teaches you, and no matter how precise the map given to you... you must make the journey yourself and it will be your feet doing the walking... and guess what? you will not arrive until it is the will of Allah, so all the rest of the dogma and "tradition" is superfluous. it's between you and the Absolute, the reality is... there is nothing between you and the Creator except veils created by your own sense of self-importance and mental artifacts created by deluded thought processes. one final comment... the same self-importance that causes us too seek to raise one truth or tradition above another, is the same characteristic that causes us to take it personally when someone disagrees with us... minds are like parachutes, they only function when fully open. a parachute that will only accept certain currents of air will not open fully, the result of it's discriminatory acceptance is a great big SPLAT! having said all of that... these are nothing but words, fingers pointing at the moon... don't focus on my finger [please don't bite it!] look at the moon! isn't she beautiful!

Furthermore, the emphasis on practices may obscure a far more important fact: The seeker is, in a sense, to become a broken person, stripped of all habits through the practice of (in the words of Imam Al-Ghazali ) solitude, silence, sleeplessness, and hunger. [92] Magic may have also been a part of some Sufi practices, notably in India.
