Why are we here?
You must be a metaphysician and/or a scholar, to some degree. I am not. Sixty years ago, I was just another beautiful young girl - wanting to learn what a good person was, and bored to extinction with being educated at Harvard. Suddenly I found myself sitting in a classroom, opposite Seyyed Hossein Nasr - and that was a miraculous place to be! The absolute Truth, Goodness and Beauty of God stole my heart forever.
Then destiny decreed that I would give my life for you - well, not exactly for you, but for the kind of people you are...and I didn't exactly give my life. You'll see. The point is that the letter to Theophilus is absolutely crucial for YOUR solving a mystery, which I alone can put before you with any accuracy. Please concentrate on everything in the life and character of the great spiritual luminary, called "the Shaykh." It is not JUST the salute of one about to die; rather is it my Last Will and Testament, in which I'm leaving you with everything I've learned in a well-blessed, and lifelong search for wisdom.
