Path of the Seeker: Book One
The Way of Return, At the Gate of
Discipleship, Between the Desert and the Sown
by Nargis Jessie Dowland
The works of Nargis Dowland have long been out of print, with only a few copies preserved in public and private collections. A new generation of readers is now invited to read and be inspired by these classics of spirituality, and to follow the author on a journey progressing through the stages of seeking, discovering guidance, and continuing on the pilgrimage toward the ultimate goal of unity with the source of all life.
The author uses phrases from the writings of Hazrat Inayat Khan and those of other spiritual teachers as seed thoughts to inspire her own deep reflections on the stages and process of the path of return. On this journey each seeker travels on a unique but shared passage through life, passing through desire and purpose, illusion and truth, suffering and pleasure, through the self-created landscapes of one’s own thoughts, always in search of balance and harmony, and guided by the voice and presence of the Beloved that are found within the heart.
There is a path which lies between
the field of joy and the field of sorrow.
It is on this path that the Beloved walks,
and only in the silence between the desert and the sown
can the Beloved’s voice be heard.
Path of the Seeker: Book One, combines three separate shorter works: The Way of Return, At the Gate of Discipleship, and Between the Desert and the Sown. A subsequent volume, Path of the Seeker: Book Two, contains additional works by Nargis Dowland and a biographical portrait of the author.
