Question: How can we guide others to Sheykh Effendi’s way?
Don’t guide others to Sheykh Effendi’s way. Guide yourself. And others will see that light that you are carrying, and it will help them. Understand?
Don’t put yourself under this pressure, your ego will play tricks on you also, to think you are guiding others. You are not. You are sharing, but you need to guide yourself . You need to say: ‘Sheykh Effendi’s way, am I doing enough? Am I doing what I’m supposed to be doing?’ If you are, you will get so much light and so much perfume from our Sheykh that others will be attracted to you. And that’s the time when they are, it’s not going to be an easy thing for you to do too. Because it’s not easy. Then that time, your time is not going to be your own, your life is not your own. You have to help. But that is part of the way. When you have a light, others who are in darkness will look to you and they will come close to you. You cannot say, ‘no,no, no. you cannot. This is my light.’ You cannot. But don’t try to make that light by yourself. Make that light from our Sheykh. InsyaAllah ar-Rahman. SelamAleykum.
