Mystic

Like the cave of LIGHT in the mountains of Mecca

Wise

Like ancient sufi masters that lived on prayer

Timeless

Like the message of Muhammad eternal peace be upon him

Traveler

Like west African muslims that made Hajj on foot

Transcendental

Like a whirling dervish in Turkey high of hashish

Misunderstood

Like a Baye Fall drinking Coffee Touba at noon during Ramadan

Powerful

Like the qasides of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba chanted during the Grand Magal of Touba

Sometimes eye feel like a motherless child

Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair

Time never was when SALIHU was not

HE lived between the law of shariat and the ocean of marifat

Walking on the hidden tariqat enraptured by the bliss of haqiqat

Beholding the effulgent Malakut

Receiving downloads from the Jabarut

A light shined from the Lahut that blinded my eye for 20 years

Eye Am just now regaining my sight

All eye can say is

Serigne Salihu Serigne Salihu Serigne Salihu

Ya Salihu

Derijef

No ma nala Mbacke

786. . . Let Go and Be Free

786

Attachment is the root cause of all suffering. – Buddah

i was talking to a woodsman in the forest. he said you know
how to catch a raccoon? i said no, so he showed me a hollow log.
he said we put nails around the edge about an inch apart and tin foil inside.
the raccoon will
put his fist in and grab the shinny object.
but then he cant get his hand out with the object.
the ONLY way he can be FREE is if he lets go.

Rat race

not the human race

trapped inside the matrix

chasing the pie in the sky

living a life

based on a lie

why not ask why

stop

think

remove the facade

that u are an individual

climbing up the ladder of

corporate America

only to find out

it was all a dream

who moved my cheese

The dunya(material world), our passions and desires are the “shinny object.” We can not be free unless we LET GO of our attachments. On a moor subtle inner level our mental concepts, false pride, arrogance and illusions of an individual “i” separate from Allah are ALL “shinny objects” that we must let go to be FREE.  We all suffer from ignorance of reality as it is, mistaking a rope for a snake. We trap ourselves with our many attachments. We worship false idols/images of God that we created with our own minds. ALL we have to do is LET GO and Be Free.

The five colors confuse the eye

the five sounds dull the ear

the 5 tastes spoil the palate

excess of hunting and chasing

makes minds go mad – Tao Te Ching

Yesterday eye lived bewildered, in illusion. But now eye am AWAKE. Flawless and serene, beyond the world. From my consciousness the body and the world arise. All things are mine/mind, or no-thing is. Now eye have LET GO of desires, body and world. Eye see the Infinite Self. La ee la ha Ill Allah – Allah is the Only Reality!
