786…what is the Self?

Guru Rinpoche

what is the Self? who am “i” ? from beyond duality the Self shines pure Light, truth, bliss, and consciousness.

in all of the uni-verse the greatest thing one can know is the Self. in knowing the true Self one will know God !!!

dreaming the illusion of a separation between Self and God, man/woman exist in a state of pure ignorance. removing the

“idea” of a separate existence of the Self from God, is to awaken to the true nature of BLISS.

Om Ah Hung

ya Latif

the wave and the Ocean are


from Self to Self

 the Divine effulgent Being

in an attempt to Know it-Self

manifested it Self

in a perfect form

know as


drop all notions of other-ness




accept and KNOW

the ONE BE-ing

that exist as


drink from the Source


love and light— sufi ananda


this week we will begin an in-depth study of an ancient non-dual advaita  text devoted to knowing the Self-Atman-Brahman-Allah.

the series of essays will be called “Drinking from the Source.”

are you ready to drink….until the point of intoxication?

  1. ready to drinking! consumed by flame of life! waiting for this learning!

  2. Why do almost all scholars disagree with sufism? Why does Allah say he is on his throne far above his creation. Why is it made clear that to be muslim one must believe in tawheed, the oneness of god. Why is it clear shirk to say Allah is in you or you are god? I am asking because I really want proof that sufism is not inovation and that this is what Muhammad taught and that it is whats in the Quran and as far as the magic tricks y’all do or so called miracles its just the work of the jinn and magic is forbidden in islam. Please answer my questions aki, no disrespect. Asalaamualaikum

    • 786… as salam alaikum dear brother Sunnitruth. it is a blessing to speak with you about these most important topics in islam. many of the verses in the Quran have an inner and outer meaning. Allah existing on His throne, is one of these verses. Allah, the Lord of the worlds can not be fixed to a place and a time ie(sitting on a throne). Allah is omnipresent existing at all places at all times, not in one location. Allah also says in the Quran “I am closer to you than your jugular vein.” many people mis-understand the doctrine of the sufi. the sufi is not saying that he is a god, or that god exist “inside” of him. this is impossible. the sufi is saying that La ee la ha ill Allah means Allah is the Only reality. this is the esoteric meaning of the kalima shahada. a sufi believes in a tawheed that does not permit for a second being to exist with Allah.
      there are deviant members in every group. a true sufi does not practice magic! the only objective of a true sufi is to draw close to Allah by taskiya-tulnafs(purification of the soul). a true sufi follows the sunnah of our beloved nabi Muhammad alay he salam.
      feel free to ask any question you like
      al hum do li la…

  3. God is I am right here, right now, right here right now God is I am. There is no separation and self is part of the whole. And so it is.

  4. so if allah is not in us as in our body being a temple than could you see we are in him? Are we a thought in an infinite mind or are a projected image of light via electrical signals exsisting outside of allah? Does Allah manifest himself as a physical being when we go to heaven? What are your thoughts on the grave, judgement, hell fire and heaven? What are your thoughts on hadith. Why do people say only follow the sunni scholars and dont try to interpret things? I feel so bad to think that because one is not sunni but is righetous and does good deeds that they will be in an eternal fire. What is shirk truly and when it cannot be forgiven does that mean one will suffer eternally? I am scared i will never be good enough, i want to go to a better place after death and eventually be close to allah. what books can i study and where can i find proof that the prophet salahu alayhee wasalaam taught the sufi understanding of god?

    • 786. . .may Allah guide all who have a sincere intention to reach Him. you must know that a sufi is a sunni muslim. our way is in the Quran and the hadith. a true sufi is a sunni muslim with a different intention. the sunni muslims, in general, worship Allah out of fear of the hell fire, and the desire for jannah. the sufi muslim has no fear of hell, and no desire for jannah. the sufi muslim worships Allah out of LOVE, because Allah deserves to be worshiped. the intention of the sufi is to return to Allah. returning to Allah is much greater than going to heaven my brother. in the Quran Allah says “all things return to Allah”, and “to Allah is the journey.” we, as muslims should consider these verses. the sufis say “Allah is greater than heaven.” in surah rahman Allah says “everything will cease to exist, except the face of Allah.” Allah is the ONLY as-samad(eternal One) ! the true doctrine of reaching Allah, and divine proximity(closeness) can only be found with the sufi.
      in the Quran Allah says “islam is revealed in stages.” the sufi has found the stages of islam to be: shariat, tariqat, haqiqat and marifat. please take the time to study these stages insha Allah.
      once after our beloved nabi Muhammads(alay he salam) death, the sahaba asked Ali to give them some teachings he had learned directly from Muhammad. Ali said ” i have taken two branches of knowledge form our beloved prophet. if i tell you the first branch you will say i am a good muslim, but if i even start to teach you the second branch. you wil say this is outside of islam.” what is the second teaching that Ali said he got directly from nabi Muhammad? this second teaching is the INNER SCIENCE OF THE SUFI WAY.

  5. That is deep my brother but where do I start with no sheik?
