THE SUFI CREED
FOR RESPONSIBLE SPIRITUAL LIBERATION

SEEK, RECOGNIZE AND HONOR TRUTH
NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT MAY CONFLICT WITH YOUR DESIRES.

NEVER THINK THAT YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE PATH OF LEARNING.

REJECT NOTHING! ACCEPT EVERYTHING (EVEN YOUR SELF REJECTION)

DO NOT MAKE YOUR DESIRES THE VOICE OF YOUR GOD.

NEVER THINK THAT YOU ARE GOD, OR FREE OF YOUR DESIRES.
LIBERATION HAS TO DO WITH RECOGNITION AND ACCEPTANCE,
NOT DESTRUCTION, OF SELF.

GOD IS GOD -  WE ARE WE,
AND EVEN IF YOU ARE THE HOLIEST OF HOLIES,
(AND NO ONE DENIES THAT YOU ARE)
IT'S ONLY BECAUSE THE REAL GOD WILLS IT THAT WAY.

YOUR SELF HAS RIGHTS,
YOUR RELATIONSHIPS HAVE RIGHTS,
AND YOUR  GOD HAS RIGHTS.

SO BE RESPONSIBLE TO AND BE IN HUMBLE RECOGNITION
OF THE ONE WHO HAS GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING.
