The Fruit of Heaven from Wisdom of the Idiots

From the Idries Shah Traditional Psychology

'Because what narrow thinkers imagine to be wisdom is often seen by the Sufis to be folly, the Sufis in contrast sometimes call themselves "The Idiots.”’ — Idries Shah.

Sufi stories contain several levels of meaning and work like psychological mirrors in which the reader may see himself and reality reflected, and come to better understand both. The movements of the characters in these stories portray psychological processes, and the story becomes a working blueprint of those processes.
