In order to solve the complex and multidimensional problems of today's world, we need a radical imaginary, a new way to restructure and transform our society, its institutions, its organizations and its inhabitants. One such radical imaginary can be provided by Islamic mysticism or Sufism in the form of ishq-i haqiqi or Love of the divine. This new imaginary has a distinct epistemology, ontology and cosmology which needs to be understood within the boundaries of its own discourse and praxis. It has the power to infuse the social world with universal meanings of love, brotherhood and divinity. This can then help us to question, contest and re-structure our relationships with each other, this universe and God, our creator. Finally, this new imaginary of ishq-i haqiqi can also be used to transform organizational realities especially with relevance to their purpose & mission and can reverse the existing moral degradation of the workplace.
