Clearing Impressions

By Hafiz - Posted on 30 January 2011

One of the major focuses of our work in Zira’at involves freeing ourselves from the conditioning of both the conscious and subconscious mind.  One of the stages in achieving this entails working to clear impressions that the mind seems to spontaneously generate, which Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Khan symbolizes in Zira’at as the work involved in plowing the field.  In our last Zira’at class we focused on two aspects of this work. 

Unlearning

By Hafiz - Posted on 13 April 2009

In Toronto, we hold a Ziraat Class and Lodge four times a year on each solstice and equinox.  In our class we are focusing on a number of topics related to Ziraat work including balance, nature and mental purification.  In our studies on mental purification we are currently working with unlearning and some of us have taken on as personal practice Hazrat Inayat Khan’s teachings on the stages of unlearning.
