    Development Towards Wisdom and Maturity: Sufi Conception of Self2000In: Journal of Aging and Identity, ISSN 1087-3732, E-ISSN 1573-3491, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 137-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By applying results from in-depth interviews with older Iranian Sufis residing in Sweden, this article describes the benefits of the value system of Sufism prizing mystical union above self-realization. As persons conceive of themselves as all forming parts of other-than-self rather than as separate selves, the result is tolerance towards other people's opinions and the vanishing of hostile feelings and competition. Compassion and identification with the whole of creation allows Sufis to avoid the sense of loneliness and exclusion felt by so many immigrants.

    Sufism and Gerotranscendence: The impact of way of Thinking, Culture and Aging on Spiritual Maturity1998In: Journal of Aging and Identity, ISSN 1087-3732, E-ISSN 1573-3491, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 189-211Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the similarities and dissimilarities between a gerotranscendental person's and a Sufi's view of ontological questions, of self and of social and individual relationships. Using the Life History Approach followed up by thematic semi-structured interviews, I studied thirteen Iranian Sufis residing in Sweden, dividing the interviewees into two groups according to the stage of their life in which they became familiar with the Sufi ideas: those who became familiar with Sufi ideas early in their life (30 years) are called early Sufis, and those whose familiarity with Sufi ideas came about in their later life (>30) are called later Sufis. The study posits that the existence of a cosmic view of self and the surrounding world can be observed among early Sufis due to their intemalization of the Sufi ideas in early life. Regarding later Sufis, we can hypothesize that the existence of such a cosmic view is not only due to the intemalization of Sufi ideas, but also to aging.

     Youthfulness and Fitness Identity Ideals for All Ages?2001In: Journal of Aging and Identity, ISSN 1087-3732, E-ISSN 1573-3491, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 15-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In consumer society the body, one focus for a youthful consumption, is a symbol of identity, the ‘true presentation’ of who one really is. We have witnessed new images for elderly people, especially the Young-Old. This descriptive study focuses on the importance of youthfulness and fitness in different among Swedes in different ages. The empirical study among 1.250 Swedes in the age 20-85 show youthfulness and fitness as uni-age phenomena. More than 7 out of 10 report lower ‘subjective ages’ (Feel-Age, Ideal-Age and Look-Age) than their chronological age. Fitness activities and slenderness ideals seem to be important independent of age group. This could, on one hand, be interpreted as a changing life course with new, more ‘positive’ images of old age. On the other hand it could be interpreted as a new, more subtle form of ageism.
