Sufism is the mystical wisdom tradition within Islam. There is an ancient Sufi saying that answers the question “What is our true task?“ directly and powerfully. If you have ever wondered what our deep purpose as a human on this planet might be, you will want to read this, and perhaps even share it with your friends.
Read the Sufi answer to the question, “What is my true task?” here:
Be a blazing fire of truth,
be a beauteous blossom of love,
and be a soothing balm of peace.
Whatever our mission in life, this is our real task: to spread truth, love, and peace. Our world is in desperate need of peace on this age of division and violence. Each one of us has the capacity to live truth, love, and peace heroically, spreading their influence around the world.
