Know, the true nature of your Beloved.
In His loving eyes, your every thought,
Word and movement is always –
Our egos never want to be humble ones, always asking to be ‘sultan’. It is so remote for our egos to be ‘sultan’ – impossible.
There is only one ‘Sultan’, and He has absolute sultanate, authority, from pre-eternity to post eternity, and there is no one else in existence to claim that he or she is ‘sultan’. Divine sultanate, eternal sultanate, is only for the Lord of the Heavens, the Lord of mankind, our God. And we are His servants.”
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, the 40th Shaykh in the Naqshbandi Golden Chain of Shaykhs.
