786. . . the 4th state of consciousness- Turiya
wal Quran ul Hakeem
EYE have awoke from the dream
mind stop, time stop
motionless eternal stillness
multiple manifestations of the ONE
Allah Hu YOU
non dual NOT two
Only Allah can worship Allah
The master exist beyond the mind, in an eternal state of beholding the beauty of the One in its multiple states on BE-ing! Before creation there was only Allah. after creation, it is as it was. can it be that it was all so simple? the only thing that separates you from Allah, is the thought that you are separate from Allah. duality only exits in the mind. above the plane of the mind there exist an infinite pure state of Bliss, Oneness and stillness. this is the 4th state of consciousness- Turiya.
just as there is a tremendous difference between the awake state and the sleep state, there is a greater difference between Turiya and the awake state. upon entering the 4th state of consciousness, Turiya, the awakened One will see those in the awake state as sleep. this is why or beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him) has said ” all people are asleep, at the time of death they will awake.” in the Holy Quran Allah says “at the time of death the eyesight will become clear.” these two references to “death” are alluding to the sublime process of the “death before death” on the sufi path.
Death before death is the process of, bringing your square above your compass, symbolically dying on the cross, defeating the lower self and entering into the 4th state of consciousness in which the seeker becomes “dead” to the illusionary concepts of duality and separation from Allah.
the way of the sufi is death, extinction(FANA) in Allah, through the prophet Muhammad alay he salam and the living master/Cheikh. this symbolic death will bring one to the fourth state of consciousness- Turiya. “mute ta qabla mute-die b4 you die.”- Prophet Muhammad
