Positive attracts Positive
—— a short story from More Teaching Stories
A certain Sufi community in Turkey had shrunk over the years until only one teacher and three disciples remained. They lived together in their Sufi centre, spending their days in remembrance of God, meditation, and tending their fields and orchards. The residents of the centre grew older and older. They became concerned that their way of life might die out as no new, young people joined the order.
