"All humans are members of the same body Created from one essence"

"Human beings are members of a whole in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain."

Love and Global Power Conflict

Rumi said that mysticism and Sufism should not lose connection with the analytical mode of thinking. 

Love is the concept of mysticism! The love that is oriented toward God is the best remedy to employ in global power conflict. 

Spiritualism should not let people lose touch with reality and thus possibly with the sense of responsibility. Both the necessity of reason and the necessity of intuition are recognized in spiritualism.

Fontana (2003) said that "the term spirituality is also sometimes taken to indicate an openness to the spiritual teachings in all religions and schools of thought, rather than a dogmatic rejection of everything that does not come from one's own favored tradition."

Spirituality involves the highest levels of any of the developmental lines, for example, cognitive, moral, emotional, and interpersonal. Spirituality is an attitude such as an openness to love.

We are not required to live in the past nor in the future; on the contrary we are required to live in here and now. 
The center concept of Rumi's and Cheikh Hamza Chakour's Sufism  is love, since it is a way to God through love.

The first Sufi community was a group of people extremely poor but they were extremely enthusiastic about their spiritual journey to God. 

Cheikh Hamza Chakour insisted on the fact that we need to do righteous deeds in order to have peace. He said that the ultimate happiness is only granted to those who would never seek oppression or corruption.  

Solomon with his prayer just wanted perfection of his spiritual condition in experiencing God's presence so that he would see no one but his Lord.
