On May 28th, Sadiq M. Alam's Inspirations and Creative Thoughts blog is hosting a "blog carnival" of Sufi poetry on the theme of Divine Love. According to the blog, Sufis are the Lover of God. Sufi Poetry is extra-ordinary in a sense that they spring from the depth of the heart which for sufis, is the Sacred Throne of God. When such sense of sacredness comes into play, the resulted creation does wonderful things by taking us outside ourselves. They produce a shift in awareness, help us rediscover our inner-self and give us hints to catch a glimpse of what Reality really is.
A blog carnival happens when a group of bloggers connect a number of blog posts with a similar theme. The combination of all the posts across multiple sites is called a blog carnival. It is based on the idea that you can move amongst the posts and pick and choose which sights and events you like and dislike, in much the same way as you might at a carnival. Blog carnivals allow bloggers to connect with each other, share information, and establish a more sophisticated level of blogosphere interaction.
Check in on the Inspirations and Creative Thoughts blog next week for a carnival tour of Sufi poetry and a celebration of divine love!
