786…you must see the Self as God! a letter to a sister on the path

786…wa laikum as salam wa Rahma tu LA…on the Highest plane of existence, ALLAH stands alone. it is a blessing to see you still have the fire and zeal for knowledge. the first thing you must do is learn to see your Self as Allah-God. do not ask the question or even consider the idea “is the shaikh God?” you must first see and become God, then you will know and see ALL to be God. the sufi starts her journey from the lofty view point of LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH HU – GOD is the only reality. with this knowledge firmly rooted in her consciousness, she begins the journey of Self discovery to manifest God within her Self.
seeing and knowing the master/guru/shaikh as God does play an important part in the realization of the disciple.

at first, because of the false teaching from society, that God is separate from us, it can be difficult to see the Self as God. when a disciple see the beauty, power, and grace of the master, it will be easier for them to see the master as God. with the realization that the master is God comes the wonderful all inspiring idea “if the master IS God, then could it be possible that eye too am GOD?” birds fly because they see other birds fly.
we must remember that the master is the outer manifestation of the inner reality/potential of the disciple. you are the seed, our master is the Flower of that seed in full bloom. know and become God and you will see All to be God. this is the essence of La ee la ha ill Allah.

may your seed bloom in the season of Love…qiyamah sufi ananda
