786…Mystic Lessons in Love
786….what is LOVE? if you ask ten people you will get ten different answers. Love is the most important thing in life, but often the most misunderstood. only a true Mystic of the Way knows what love IS. why you may ask? because to know something in its essence, one has to BECOME that which one wishes to KNOW. it is only the Mystics of the many different spiritual traditions that Become and therefore Know LOVE.
Love in itself is a mystery for all except the MYSTICS…..what 99% of the people call Love is not Love. in fact it is contrary and at most times opposite to what True Love IS. he or she buys me things, he or she is good in bed, he or she does what eye ask them, therefore they love me LOL. these definitions have nothing to do with the True Essence of Love. eye have even heard some people say “he only hits me because he loves me.” STOP…these false definitions of love are a crime in the high court of Love. we could go on and on about what Love is not. there are many examples of what Love is NOT. instead, today we are going to talk about “Mystic Lessons in Love.”
the first Mystic Lesson in Love is “2 become 1.” the essence of Love is One. Love is Union of Lover and Beloved. True Love is losing ones false Self and merging with the object of ones Love. on a higher inner level the universe is the objectification of the (UNI)-One. That One is God. God is Love. from this view-point one will come to know that there is only One Being that exist, God. from this lofty view-point Love is an understanding of your ONENESS with ALL. in REALITY there is not two that become one, there is ONE Knowing itself, as ALL. “2 become 1” is a realization that what we thought to be two-Lover and Beloved(duality) were in fact ONE and the same reality knowing ITSELF through the vehicle of LOVE…. this is the first Mystic Lesson in Love “2 become 1″.
lesson Two will be next week insha Allah..for an advance study of love please find and read” Bhakti Sutras of Narada.” this is an ancient treatise on bhakti/Divine Love…….if you have any topics on love you would like us to write on, we are open for suggestions. when the topics are finished eye will publish them as an e-book “Mystic Lessons in Love” on my webpage 786sufiwisdom on squidoo…..may we all grow and come to know these Mystic Lessons…..love and light….sufi…….
