In Sufism and related Tazkiyat Nafs Sciences, there are some Essential realities that are always kept in mind...or should be kept in mind. These are Renunciation, Acceptance, Satisfaction and Patience. He who does not have these in him is not of the people of the path of Allah
The essential reality of renunciation is to restore the choice [one's choice] to God Almighty, making one's own choice disappear.
Acceptance is to submit obediently to what He, Allah
, has chosen for you: good fortune or misfortune, whether you like it or not. To do something gladly is satisfaction, one of the states of acceptance. The essential reality of patience is to prevent the soul from complaining: he who moans, is no longer patient; he who whines, complains...so logical.
