786. . . Half Empty Half Full?

 

One day on the subway in Philadelphia, a friend and EYE were discussing the concept of the glass half empty or half full. I noticed a young man across from us paying attention to our conversation. When I said “There is no spoon” (a line from the Matrix) the guy across from us said “What spoon and what glass are you talking about?” This of course became a teaching moment.l

Visualize a glass of water in front of you that is half full of water. Ask yourself the question “Is the glass half full or half empty?” The answer to the question will determine your outlook on life. Whether you know it or not, consciousness shapes reality. Your reality is the objectification of your state of consciousness. If you see the glass as half empty then you have a pessimistic, negative outlook on life. If you see the glass as half full you have an optimistic , positive outlook on life. If you see the glass as an illusion, and God as the only REALITY then you have the mind of a mystic. Your mind state and what you believe and view as real have a direct effect on your experience.

Research shows, from several projects, that placebo medicine can have a healing effect on people in a study if they believe it is real medicine.

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” “As above, so below”. “On earth as it is in heaven.” As above, and as it is in heaven , refer to consciousness, belief, and the spiritual plane. So below, and on earth refer to the physical plane of existence.

Before anything can manifest on earth, the physical plane, it must first exist on the spiritual plane in the world of ideas and belief. “ The Kingdom of heaven is within.” Within refers to your consciousness. It is not a physical place. “On earth as it is in heaven” means that which is first conceived by the mind’s eye, can be manifested here on the earth. Therefore we have the metaphysical concept “Thoughts are forms.” So I ask you is the glass half empty or half full? Just by believing and affirming in your state of consciousness that the glass is half full, you will begin to produce more abundance in your life. “My cup runneth over.”

U must C God

Before creation there was only God

it is now as it was then….sufi proverb

Eye am developing what eye call “the view of perfection.” with this view of perfection, eye strive to see only God. to experience only God. to not view anything in my life, experience, as other than God!!! the view of perfection is based on the  understanding that “la ee la ha ill Allah” means God is the ONLY reality. with this inner gnosis, all is becoming Bliss. eye talk to God. eye walk with God. eye even ride the subway with GOD. God is becoming the reality of my experience. eye often say to people eye meet, ” have a God day.” sometimes they look at me and smile. sometimes they even ask, did you mean to say “good day?” when this happens my reply is, ” now how can a day be good without God?”

God is the All in All. the only 1 that has real Being. God is the substratum of ALL forms. nothing can exist without Him. She is the formless ONE that gives form to all forms. the Buddhist have a saying that eye love “emptiness if form, and form is emptiness.” to me this means that what we see is all empty, and it is that which we do not see that has true form. there are 4 names of Allah/God that some sufis meditate on for Realization. these four names are: the First(al awal), the Last(al akir), the Hidden(al batin) and the manifest (az zahir). it is said in the sufi way that “God is known through Her opposites.” if God is the first, the last, the hidden, and the manifest, what else is there other than God? my beloved sufi master, Cheikh Betcio once said to me ” if you see something and do not see the Oneness of Allah manifest through that thing, know that your understanding of the Oneness of Allah is limited.“ on this day, and from this day forward, eye will strive to see , know, and experience ONLY GOD, with the view of perfection…. live in the light of love…sufi ananda.

786. . . Drinking from the Source- 2

“He who is supremely devoted to the Lord and has the same devotion to his guru, to him alone will the truths explained herein clearly reveal themselves.” Guru Gita vs 19

The Guru Gita infaticly states that the Guru and God are One ! In this verse the Gita is asking the devotee to have the same devotion for his Guru as he does for God. Man is the microcosm of God. All that is manifest in God is manifest in/as man. Cheikh Bawa Muhayadeen has said “man is God in the forgetting of himself.

In the absence of the ego or the concept of a false ‘i” MAN exists in a state of Oneness with God. the very idea “i exist” is a falsehood. the Only I that exist and has true BEing is the all inclusive infinite state of the I AM GOD consciousness. the very fact that this I AM is the Only consciousness shows its relationship to man because man shares in the possibility of the awareness of the true I AM GOD state. When man comes to know with certainty his oneness with the I AM state,  Man is a Guru/God.

In sandskrit the word Gu means darkness.  the word Ru means remover. thus the word Guru means remover of darkness. Light is the only remover of darkness. Light is God. the Guru, having the power to remove darkness is the manifestation of the Light of God made flesh. “and the word dwelt amougst men and became flesh.” – Holy Bible

In the Bagavad Gita Lord Krishna proclaims there is no difference between Him and the non-manifest Brahman. Lord Krishna emaplains to Arjuna that the way to merge with Him is through Bhakti(love-devotion). the disciple HU has the same devoation to his Guru as he does with God will ultimately destroy his ego and merg/melt in/with God-Allah-Brahman!

786. . . Drinking from the Source 1

Om Allah Hu ! here we begin the illustrious journey of DRINKING FROM THE SOURCE ! in this most important series of weekly blogs we will drink directly from the Guru Gita. the Guru Gita is a non-dual advaita text from the hindu/vendanta tradition. its main theme is the explanation of the Oneness of Self, Braman(God), the universe and the Guru.

Prostrations to Brahman, the Unthinkable, the Unmanifest, beyond the 3 Gunas(modes of existence), yet the very Self of existence, the supporting Substace/Substratum behind the manifested universe.- Guru Gita verse 1

om

the Self, the universe, and the Guru/Cheikh are manifestations of one BEing that we call Brahman-Allah-God. the 1st verse of the Guru Gita makes this fact clear. God is unthinkable, beyond the mind. unmanifest, not found in existence, yet immanent in existence and the substance beyond the outward form of existence, the universe. the Guru Gita starts from the lofty view point that all of existence is the direct manifestation of Brahman-Allah-God.

the sufis have a saying “Allah veils/hides Himself with Himself.” there is no other thing to veil/hide Allah because Allah is All. the same Allah is the essence of ALL forms and the Self. the Guru Gita starts with the concept of transcendence and imminence, first saying that Brahman(God) is beyond the 3 gunas(modes of existence) ie transcendent and then affirming that Brahman IS the substance of the manifested universe. in the sufi way we have the exact same concept. La ee la ha ill Allah on an inner esoteric level means Allah is the only reality !

from beyond the veil of the mind, Brahman-Allah-God manifest as the Self of all beings in existence. it is the goal of the seeker to know and BE/manifest this true Self, that is beyond the mind and all false concepts of self. in this series of blogs  we will DRINK FROM THE SOURCE to obtain a level of clarity and certainty of the Oneness of the Self and God. it is the Guru/Cheikh who is ultimately the key of awakening for the jiva/soul to awaken to its true identity/nature. please feel free to ask any questions as we Drink from the Source. . . . om shanti- as salam wa laikum

Bhakti Yoga: The Path of Love

786…let there BE love and more Love !

Through the Peacock's Eyes

The practice of Bhakti Yoga is usually described asGayatriMantra                      devotion to a personal god or the Divine through listening to, reading, and studying the scriptures; singing and chanting mantras, worshiping and paying homage, offering service, and surrendering to God. All these practices of devotion lead to the last one: surrender. When we have surrendered our egos and its need to cling and control, we free our hearts to live through love and in faith. We have surrendered ourselves to God and to a life of Love. The devotional practices of Bhakti Yoga help to keep us in check, for this is a practice and we are human after all.

For some of us, practicing Bhakti Yoga may mean going to a weekly service or reading holy texts, such as the Yoga Sutras. For others it may mean a…
