Is sufism for you?
Check out the talks on this website to get the beginnings of an answer. They are all talks given by spiritual teacher Sheikh Nazim of Cyprus, who was speaking to people east and west since 1975.
[There is more about Sheikh Nazim via Take a Guide >>the Golden chain, and >> click to clutch.]
On this website we have brought together as many as we can of the Sheikh's teachings on Sufism as the Way of Love and the Way to Love. There is a summary of the site contents below the picture.

All mankind nowadays are becoming troublemakers. Everyone is trying to make more trouble because no respect. .... ... .... - wildness covers everywhere. ..... Without respect, without love, without mercy, without justice how can we claim that we are keeping humanity? …… ….. This world must be changed. ...... Bringing - new, good ones .. - good communities, blessed communities, clean communities, -
