Review of A Book of God's Love by M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
A Book of God's Love - M R Bawa Muhaiyaddeen

A Book of God's Love by M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen is a short book discussing spiritual topics such as unconditional love, forgiveness, and others. Some parts of the book definitely resonated with me more than others, but I didn't find it too hard to take the wisdom that was meaningful to me and discard the rest. Even when reading parts of the book that I didn't particularly resonate with, I still felt a sense of peace when reading it. One thing I particularly liked about the book was the theme that one should forever be a student and never stop learning and questioning the world around us. I think that people who have more traditional spiritual beliefs would get even more out of this book than I did.

Review of Awakening: A Sufi Experience by Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan
Awakening: A Sufi Experience - Hazrat Inayat Khan,Vilayat Inayat Khan

Awakening: A Sufi Experience by Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan gives a good overview of the beliefs and ideals of Sufism. Admittedly there was some material that was over my head, but a surprising amount of what I read was familiar to me. This is because Sufism draws from many different religions and cultures and there were concepts discussed in this book that closely resembled things I had learned when studying new age spirituality. There is a lot of emphasis on meditation in this book and it describes many different meditation and breathing exercises. Some of these I was already familiar with, but many of them were new to me. One thing that I thought was really cool about this book is that scientific principles are often used to help explain metaphysical and spiritual concepts which certainly made them easier for me to understand. I thought this was an excellent book and I'd highly recommend it to anyone new to the subject. I really enjoyed reading it and just the act of reading this book helped me to feel more peaceful.

Sufism for Non-Sufis?: Ibn 'Ata' Allah al-Sakandari's Taj al-'Arus
Sufism for Non-Sufis? Ibn ‘Aṭa’ Allāh al-Sakandarī’s Tāj al-‘Arūs - Ibn ʻAta' Allah al-Iskandari,Sherman A. Jackson Ibn Ata Allah's aphorisms are great. I found myself re-reading a great number of them either because their meaning completely went over my head after the first reading or simply because of the profundity of their meaning. Ibn Ata Allah's aphorisms address things like forgiveness, love, repentance, and man's relationship with God - often through parables. I would often quote the ones that really stood-out to me to my friends.Highly recommended.
