5.0 out of 5 stars Just the Ticket., 21 Feb 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Living Presence: Sufi Way to Mindfulness and the Unfolding of the Essential Self (Paperback)
This is an excellent book for someone seeking information about Sufism, about spiritual practice, or simply about how to live as a fully present spiritual being in our world. The chapters are short, digestible chunks in clearly written language, and include excerpts from Jelalludin Rumi's extradordinary poetry, as well as Helminski's wisdom garnered from more than two decades of Sufi study, practice, and leadership. This book balances the practical and the beautiful, and shows the sacredness inherent in human life. Someone who is remembering his or her connection to God, or wants to know how to remember that remembrance, will find "Living Presence" both useful and a joy to read. I highly recommend this book for anyone, both absolute beginners and those further along the path. A definite thumbs up!

I bought this after reading hidden treasures by camile helminski which I love. This is beautiful too and i really enjoyed it. If you love this then may i recommend reading one of sheikh nazims books which are full of heavenly wisdom in the simplest most beautiful and easily digestable form- a true heart path

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent contemporary book on Islam, 8 Jun 2013

This review is from: Living Presence: Sufi Way to Mindfulness and the Unfolding of the Essential Self (Paperback)
I appreciated the way the author attempted to use contemporary language to discuss Sufism. Personally I also resonated with his views and the fact that he made his way to Sufism via Zen Buddhism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A concise and erudite companion for the path., 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living Presence: Sufi Way to Mindfulness and the Unfolding of the Essential Self (Paperback)
This is a beautiful and skillful manual for the Sufi path that has oriented me again and again over the years. It carries the special qualities of the great Sufi texts in that (Like the Qur'an itself) it grows and evolves as you do, each time revealing another part of itself in an innovative and fresh way. A beacon for the lost wanderer and needed council for the more advanced wayfarer, i couldn't recommend this book more to those inclined towards the secrets of our emergence in Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books you will ever read., 10 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Living Presence: Sufi Way to Mindfulness and the Unfolding of the Essential Self (Paperback)
There are different things you can do with your time and different things you can read that would help you in some way. After reading a few chapters of this book you would become closer to reality and start to understand true worth and meaning of ... everything INVOLUNTARILY.
