We have Circle and Center. As we are on the Circle, we have to move around it. We have to use some sort of radius since only a radius can connect Circle to the center. The Path (Sect) has the greatest potential. It can change you to the core; it can transform you completely. In the Way (Sect) we find a cure — an ointment to open our eyes and let us see what we weren’t able to see. The Path (Sect) represents the Tasawwuf concept of spiritual advancement and esoteric knowledge in Sufism. This path is the process of removing barriers between the individual and his “ego”, between the individual and the Universe, between the particle and the Universe.
