3. SAFAR DAR WATAN
or Travelling in the Homeland
In this case Watan or ”Homeland” means inside the person
themselves. This is distinct from travelling “outside” themselves
for the purpose of learning, making contacts or visiting
places to experience the Baraka. Travelling in the
Homeland means observing oneself in a detached, tranquil,
non-critical way - gently critical, not self-accusing –
and learning from one’s errors.
