Sufi Meditation

I have always been intrigue by quotes from Sufis like Rumi and Khalil Gilbran.This one from Rumi may touch your heart:

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”

Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi

When I was a kid, I loved to swirl round and round like sufis do. Then I will lie down on the floor after that to enjoy the blissful detachment from my own mind. Nobody taught me that. I just did it instinctively.

Last Sunday, I attended my first Sufi group meditation. It is different from other methods of meditation in that it does not require one to focus on anything. And so it required a little bit of getting used to in the first few minutes. :)
