Degrees of the Soul ~ Shaykh al-Shabrawi


He [the wayfarer] must therefore relish obscurity and whatever conduces to it, and he must behave in such a manner as to prevent people from thinking much of him, so that whenever he is seen he is paid neither much attention nor consideration, nor does anyone return his greetings. This is the state of the sincere seeker.

Extract from p.11
