BESHARA AND IBN ARABI PDF

The difference now is that this is available to as many people as have the inclination and desire to search for it. Texts reflecting this wisdom have come to us from down the ages, written by exceptional people who have been inspired. These texts must be interpreted according to our time and disposition, but the fundamental human truths they contain do not change. Above all these texts serve as mirrors to ourselves, so that through engagement with words and ideas we can see deep into our own nature through a process that must be learnt but cannot be taught. A balance that must be found between the rational mind the head and the sense of presence or feeling the heart for the searcher to enter a state of unitive awareness. In order to avoid limiting this wisdom to our own individual understanding, Beshara courses concentrate on group study where a shared perspective can be arrived at and the individual students can act as mirrors to each other, just as the texts provide a mirror for the group as a whole.

There are no teachers, or rather each person within the course becomes a teacher not only to themselves but to others. This includes the course supervisors who have experienced this process and so can convey something of its quality — they do not have the answers. The answers come from the individual to the individual, and from the whole to the whole — it is just a question of perspective.

Knowledge sets out the terrain to be traversed — where we came from and where we are going. It melts the heart and transcends the narrow confines of selfhood in favour of greater beauty and inclusive identity. The shifting points of view that both these writers freely and thoroughly adopt break up our pre-established patterns of thought and their texts invite students to radically new perspectives. Students by studying mystical texts from other traditions can learn to correlate ideas, and discover for themselves the single truth that runs through all human thought.

Meditation focuses on facing the essential reality without intermediary in order to develop intimate awareness of an ever-present reality.

Work — in the kitchen or garden, for example — while of great practical importance, also allows for the expression of service and love. Selected Reading Know Yourself. Oxford, , earlier translations of some of these vols. T Burckhardt. English trans. All rights reserved.

Ibn ‘Arabi and the Journey Within

When he was eight years old he moved with his family to Seville, where he was based for the remainder of his time in Spain, although he travelled a great deal both in Andalusia and North Africa. As a young teenager, he felt a strong calling from God and went into retreat. Here he had a spiritual vision, under the guidance of the three prophets of the Abrahamic religions, Jesus, Moses and Muhammad. He studied Islamic scriptures and all the sciences, learning from many spiritual masters and began to write books see Sufis of Andalusia.
