Destruction of the lower self
Traveling at the speed of God, eye found the self to be God. This entire Universe is a mystery its seems like God is playing hide and seek with me and my mind is in the way. Every day is the same day. A divine stage play of Yin and Yang. Wisdom of the play says it definitely wasn’t a big bang. theory after theory, philosophy after philosophy. Finally figured it aught to be a way out of the Truman show. Buddah sat down under the tree to breathe slow. Reaching the awakened state of consciousness. He recited a golden sutra that was similar to this. SHOALIN~~~~~~~~~
He who has no master, the devil is his master—Sufi proverb
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear!
One great master, Kripal Singh has said, “the master is really a lighted candle that lights many blown out candles on this path of light, the master is all important. The Sanskrit word guru means remover of darkness. The master is the outward manifestation of the inner potential of the seeker.
There are at least 313 high spiritual masters on the planet at all times from many different spiritual paths. My master, Serigne Saliou Mbacke from West Africa, once said, “I have a representative in the Buddhist Tradition.” These 313 masters form the spiritual government. As above so below. The government on earth is a reflection of the spiritual government. The spiritual government is divided into 4 regions; North, South, East and West. There are 7 districts spread out across the globe from east to west. There is at least one high master in each of these regions and districts. These masters work with celestial beings from the heavens.
The Four Enemies
“The nafs (lower self) on the inside is a worse enemy than 70 devils on the outside” Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
“The only jihad (war) in this time period is Jihad-ul-Nafs (war against the lower self)” Cheikh Ahamdou Bamba
CHEIKH AHMADOU BAMBA
Sufism is war against the lower self. The first principle in any war is to study and know your enemy. Our master, Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, clearly explains the four enemies of the self to us: Nafs (lower self) howa (passion/desires), dunya (materialism), and shaytun (the devil). He explains that each of the enemies must be defeated by a different weapon. The nafs (lower self) includes any negative character traits such as, greed, lust, anger, pride, selfishness, lying, backbiting, slander, and hatred. The destruction of the lower self is the destruction of all negative thoughts, words and actions. It is the perfection of one’s own character (adab). Prophet Muhammad said, “I have come to perfect the adab (the character) of mankind.” Sufism is Adab. One sufi saying is “he who excels you in Adab (good character) excels you in Sufism.”
The lower self is often compared to a wild animal. When this animal is strong, it is a fierce enemy. When this animal is weak, it is easy to defeat. Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba teaches that the weapon to defeat the nafs is hunger and fasting. He said that a true sufi eats less, talks less, and sleeps less. One sufi once said to me, “starve the nafs, then you can defeat it.” My master has said that eating too much food makes the heart hard and heavy. A full bird cannot fly. Eating less weakens the animal self (nafs). One aspect of the nafs that is difficult to overcome is the ego, false, I. This false I, ego, must die. The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) has said in one hadith, “die before you die.” True Sufism is death before death. The death of the lower self must take place in order for the flower of the higher self to bloom and blossom.
