“The perfect Sufi is lost in God. He that is absorbed in the Beloved and has abandoned all else is a Sufi.”

 

…………………………………………………………

 

“Let everyone cry out to God and lift his heart up to God, as if he were . . . (this is how to pray . . .) hanging by a hair and a tempest were raging to the very heart of heaven and he were at a loss for what to do and there were hardly time to cry out. It is a time when no counsel indeed can help a man and he has no refuge save to remain in his loneliness and lift his eyes and his heart up to God and cry out to Him. And this should be done at all times for in the world a man is in great danger.”

 

–Chasidic tradition

“He who would lose his life for My sake shall find it.”

 

–Yeshu
