“In order to become human, we need to always be within the Divine Presence – to be aware of God, to hold Him in our hearts. When a human being performs zhikr, their spirit – their heart starts to open. Their intelligence becomes more refined and more expansive. Their bodies become healthier. A beautiful condition comes about – similar to the one that is brought about by good music. The whole being opens up like a flower, and the Divine Secret – the things you couldn’t understand or know about before – begin to be revealed to you.” ~ Suleyman Hayati Dede
