Happiness IS

Deep

inside my heart

a still voice

sings

a soliloquy of

Bliss

  captivated by the melody

eye exist

in a state

of

 extreme

HAPPINESS!!!!

Eye once asked one of my teachers what it would take to find happiness? He

looked at me, smiled and said “happiness is not something you find. Happiness

is something you ARE.” Part of the true nature of the human being is

Bliss(ananda). This Blissful nature is an aspect of God, who is seen in the hindu

tradition as Sat(truth) Chi(consciousness) and Bliss(ananda). Since God is the

true Self, Bliss is an aspect of Self. Bliss also translates as happiness! True

happiness does NOT come from any outside source, like: money, relationships,

sex, or drugs. True happiness comes from the Self/God. True happiness is not

something that comes and goes based on outer circumstances. True happiness

is ETERNAL because God, its source is eternal!!! Eye once saw a church

billboard that said “if God seems far away, who moved?” In the Bible

the Holy Avatar Jesus said

that the kingdom of heaven is within, and we all know that God is in heaven so

God must BE within U. The prophet Muhammad said “God cannot fit into the

heavens or the earth, but God fits into the hearts of His believers.” The search

for happiness is untimely the search for God!

Ironically looking for God is like a fish in the ocean looking for water LOL. Be

still and KNOW that God, happiness is an aspect of your true nature. All u have

to do

is find Self, and you will have found God and HAPPINESS…..

Live more , Laugh more, Love more!!!——sufi ananda

786…7 principles of Self Realization

https://786sufiwisdom.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/spiritualguideforall-blogspot-in.jpg?w=279

“Herein is expounded the means of attaining

APAROKSHANUBHUTI-SELF REALIZATION

for the acquisition of final liberation. Only the pure in heart should constantly and with all effort meditate upon the truth herein taught.” – Sri Sankara

From this day forward know that the true Self(atman) is God(Brahman)! The worst slavery in the world is the false teaching that God is outside of Self. May this wisdom of Self Knowledge rid us all of this poison, and be an aid to Self-God Realization. Non Dual Advaita is the science of God based on ONEness. Advaita does not see duality between man and God. One of the founders of this school of philosophy was Sri Sankara. A Hindu proverb says that “knowledge is a benefit to people, and Sri Sankara was a benefit to knowledge.” Sri Sankara’s thought was revolutionary in the time period that he came. Hinduism has 108 deities. Sri Sankara clarified the understanding that all of the Deities that the Hindus worship are manifestations of the ONE Supreme Brahman. Just as in Islam we worship Allah who has 99 attributes. In Hinduism Brahman has 108 attributes, that are worshiped as individual Deities. The 7 principles for Self realization are explained in Sri Sankaras short text “Aparokshanubhuti-Self Realization.” This text serves as a summary, and introduction to my favorite philosophy, Non Dual Advaita. In reality, the 7 principles are qualities that a seeker must have to take the journey to Self Realization.

The first principle is indifference. Indifference means that the seeker should have no attraction to the material things of this world. The example in the text given is that the things of this world should be viewed on the same level as cow dung. Pure indifference means that the seeker is not even interested in the rewards and blessing one may receive from the Creator in another life time or heaven. Ckeikh Abdul Qadir Jilani alluded to this level of pure indifference when he said “sufism is two steps, a step out of this world into heaven, and a step out of heaven into the Divine Presence.

The second principle is discrimination. Discrimination is having the knowledge to know the difference between what is Real, and what is illusion.  In Budist dharma, this is almost the same as the concept of impermanence, which says that all things in the universe are impermanent, and therefor have no real existence. Discrimination is the ability to know/see God as the only reality, and untimely to see and know that the Self is God. One of Sri Sankara’s famous teachings is that “a rope may be mistaken for a snake, but upon finding out that it is a rope, the false existence of the snake disappears.” In his philosophy, the universe and the false self, ego, are represented by the snake. Upon Self realization the Self, God, and the universe are seen as ONE and the same Being, Brahman.

The third principle is abandonment of desires. In the text Sri Sankara says that this means turning away completely from all sense objects. It is previous impressions laying dormant in the mind as well as the contact of the mind with external objects that creates desires. To abandon these desires the mind must become disassociated with the two main causes of desire by purification and meditation. Impressions laying dormant in the mind can be purified  and removed by the use of sufi zikr or sacred mantras from Hinduism and/or Buddhism. Meditation, and the development of focusing the mind on the Divine, through developing one pointedness of the mind, remove the mind from contact with sense objects.

https://i0.wp.com/designora.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/om-icon.jpg

The fourth principle is endurance of all sorrow and pain. One sufi master from our sufi order, Cheikh Ibra Fall used to say “the harder the better.” Our beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him) has said “if you love Allah, prepare for trials.” In the Holy Quran Allah says ” I test those who try to come close to me. Do not think that you can come close to Me without being tried like those who came before you.” The sufi way is patience during test and trials, and thankfulness  during times of affluence and blessing. From the viewpoint of Non Dual Advaita test and trials are the same as affluence and abundance.

The fifth principle is implicit faith in the words of the Holy scriptures and teachers(Gurus or Cheikhs). It is said in the sufi way “if you doubt you are out.” The seeker must have faith in the teacher, and the method he/she is teaching for Self Realization. The first level of faith is belief. The seeker must believe in the words of the scriptures and the teacher. The seeker must travel from the level of belief, to the level of certainty. It is at the level of certainty that the fruits of the path come to fruition. In this faith principle we find the subtle implication that the scriptures alone are NOT enough for Self Realization. One must find a Self Realized spiritual guide to help guide them on the path.

The sixth principle is concentration of the mind on God, the ONLY Reality. This principle is the end result of Realization. The mind of a Self Realized being is absorbed in God. The mind of a Self Realized being does not see any existence other than God. In the sufi way one of the main mantras/zikr is LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH. The esoteric meaning of this zikr is God is the only Reality. Constant repetition of this zikr is one way to bring the mind to absorption in God.

The seventh principle is burning desire in the heart for God. This burning desire in the heart for God is the ONLY desire that a seeker should have. This burning desire is a flame in the heart that burns all and everything, leaving only the presence of God. This burning desire for God is a flame that has the power to burn the negative karma of a seeker, opening the way for the seeker to reach Self Realization. Once while sitting with our beloved master Cheikh Betchio in Senegal he said ” I can do anything for a disciple on the path, but if the disciple does not have the internal desire to reach God, there is nothing I can do for him.”

These are the 7 requirements that a seeker must have to journey on the path. Before Sri Sankara starts his explanation he says “only the pure at heart” should meditate on theses teachings. So in essence the 1st and most important unstated principle is having a pure heart. In the Holy Quran Allah says “he indeed succeeds who purifies it.” It, refers to the heart.

786…die in the Ocean of Love- the life of a sufi

Serigne Fallou,  Jalal & Sufi

“the sufi is the son of the moment.”- sufi proverb…. a sufi lives in the NOW. for a true sufi there is no past, present, future, day, or night. a sufi lives in a state beyond time and space in oneness with the Divine. a sufi lives in the 4th chakra-the heart-the closest place to find Allah. a sufi lives in the ocean of LOVE. in fact, a sufi is one HU has died in the ocean of love. a true sufi practices the alchemical science of taskiya tul nafs (purification of the soul). the life of a sufi is a life of remembrance, love and service(kidma) to God. a sufi is a worshiper of the Divine Light of Allah that dwells in the hearts of all living Beings. a sufi only see’s GOD. for a sufi there can be no other reality or existence other than GOD. for a sufi ALL religions are TRUE!!! a sufi can see the inner esoteric truth of all religions. a sufi is a christian to a christian, a jew to a jew, a hindu to a hindu, a buddhist to a buddhist, and a muslim to a muslim.

the first day eye met my beloved cheikh, Cheikh Betcio, in senegal he said to me “the only one closer to Allah than you, is the one HU loves Allah more than you.” the founder of our sufi order, Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, wrote in one of his sufi poems, “my religion is the religion of LOVE.” love love love. the way of the sufi is love. love is a wave, that takes the traveler to its source, the Ocean, Allah. just as the wave and the ocean are one, love and Allah-God are ONE.

the Ocean of Love

—-sufi

https://786sufiwisdom.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/ocean-of-love.jpg?w=300

Love is a flame in the heart that burns All leaving only the Beloved. When two people experience true Love they disappear and become One. In disappearing and becoming One, the two people lose all since of self. When the since of self disappears the only thing left is GOD-LOVE. The way of the Sufi is Love. true Love of God leads to death and dying in God. Sufi master Bawa Muhaiyadeen teaches that “when you are there, God is not. when you(ego) are not there, God Is.”  I die daily that God may live through me as ME. The beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him) once said “die before you die.” In this process of death before death, the lover loses all since of self(ego-separation-duality) and is resurrected into the conscious Oneness with God. Re-gaining the lost consciousness of our innate Oneness with God is the purpose of life. A seed is planted in the ground to become a Flower. Man-Woman come to earth to become -realize-know-remember their ONENESS with God. It is as if God is playing hide and seek with Himself from behind the hiding place of YOU. In union with Love, by the power of Love, God-LOVE wins the game, and YOU(lover) no longer exist.  God exist as U. Love reigns supreme! Love reigns supreme! Love reigns supreme! A Love supreme, a Love supreme, Allah supreme, Allah supreme…..living in the light of love—sufi ananda

786…Wisdom of Aham Brahmasmi

Wisdom of Aham Brahmasmi.

http://ram0singhal.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/aham-brahmasmi.jpg

“You are not the body, you are not the body, you are not the body.” 

How can I be a mere body when I am Brahman, the Absolute?

and people repeat this mantra ….. day in ….day out ….

thinking I am that only…… for years all together …..

in the name of religious or spiritual practices …..

without any confirmation coming from within…..

so then what is a real path ?

Aham Brahmasmi (ah-HUM brah-MAHS-mee) is a Sanskrit sutra

whose English translation is “the core of my being is the
ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source
of all that exists.”

it is like mother and woman ……

a mother is a woman but woman is not a mother but has a

possibility to be a be a mother ……

so all humans has a equal possibility to be……. that only. 

research that possibility….. with sensitive prayers ….

so what is a sensitive prayer?

to make every work a worship ……perform every ritual of life

with love that is true spirituality……or a sensitive prayerlike for me to write this article is a prayer and worship of
work….so should be for all of us even to read it also…..so even
every breath should be a prayer and thanks to cosmic spirit.

we all bring this possibility in our closed hands as seed of love

….. to plant this into our world to make it a tree ofeternal
happiness …… this tree of eternal happiness is that only ……..we mayrefer as
GOD , ALLAH , OM, or name of our choice…..

for a seed to become tree is a transformation …..so also

for a

woman to become mother is a transformation ….and alsofor a
human to became ray of this universe and light is a
transformation…..

a seed loses it’s identity to merge in soil to became a

tree……so

we have to lose our identity or ego to merge with cosmic
identity….. then only we can say in a silent wishper…..

that I am….. that only……. or …… Aham Brahmasmi

love all

(c) ram0ram …….. freedom to right copy and share.

 Becoming transparent

eye manifest divinity

me, myself, and eye,

Form the Holy Trinity

in oneness

my essence knows no multiplicity

The vibration of light slowed down creates matter

Meditation stills the chatter

of the mind

The first rung of the ladder

of self-realization

is hard to find

It lies at the base of the spine

https://i0.wp.com/www.intotheheart.org/jpgs/ChakraGoddess.jpg

  eye have been in heaven several times

When the serpent started to climb

eye was intoxicated by celestial wine

Engulfed by the light

in reality eye do not exist

The lover dies in the love of the fire of the beloved’s kiss

I am that I am

eye am approaching divinity

18,000 universes exist inside of me

The self of the Self can only be measured by infinity

Definitely, definitively eye am approaching divinity

Seeing myself beyond the body on the astral plane of the soul

was completely perplexing

Etheric light body

kissed by 3 immortal fish

from the see of darkness 4 gates in in the sky opened

Some things are not to be spoken

Extreme states of bliss preceded gnosis

disappearing in oneness from the closeness

Becoming transparent

eye manifest divinity

me, myself, and God

form the Holy Trinity

in oneness

My essence knows no multiplicity

The vibration of light slowed down made me. –
