786…God shows UP !!!
one sufi master once said “eye spent 40 years talking to God, and the people thought eye was talking to them.”
today on the bus on the way to work God was there!!! there were two ladies on the bus having church this morning. WOW!!! this is going to be a good day eye thought. one of the ladies said “i cant wait for God to show UP. i cant wait for Him to come back.” now me being HU EYE AM, eye thought to myself, She is God! God does not have to come from anywhere! God is all and everything, OMNIPRESENT! out of nowhere (since they were talking about my favorite subject, God) eye said “eye sure hope God shows UP soon.” amen the two ladies said as eye got of the bus.
God shows UP!!! now this is real talk. eye just happen to be a GED/ESL teacher for the public school system in philadelphia. after the bus experience, guess who was in my class today- GOD….at the back table in my class 6 students started having church. 3 older african american women and 3 younger hispanic women to be exact. right in the middle of my class during “church”one of the younger sisters started talking about a dream she had where an older black women was talking to her about God!!! she said the lady in her dream(which she had about 5 months ago) was the lady sitting next to her who was preaching/teaching. OMG when she said that IT WAS ON!!! eye mean tears of joy, one older lady got the Holy Ghost and started speaking in tongues!!! you got to LOVE GOD when HE shows UP in any form!
being a mystic, eye love GOD in all of Her forms. eye love it when God shows UP like that in an unexpected place. yesterday on 52st, in da hood, a perfect stranger paid for something eye needed in a corner store without me asking. the brother just stepped up, pulled out some money and said “eye got you old head.” God shows UP! now eye will never know what made the brother want to pay for my stuff like that? but it touched me in such a deep way that eye could see that GOD IS THE ONLY REALITY. God is beyond religion. God is beyond having just one way to worship and KNOW Him. God was on the bus this morning. God was in my class today. and yesterday in the corner store, God had on a musty dirty jacket with some sagging jeans!!! we must learn to see God when He shows UP! God is there in so many ways. if we could just slow down and pay attention. live and BE in the NOW. we would see God now! the illustrious Buddha one said “every instant in a chance for ENLIGHTENMENT.”” eye once said to one of my 5% brothers “A God. B God. C God”…love and light—sufi
