786. . . The Opening of mystic Love

The whole world is a market-place for Love,

umut-kebabci-whirling-dirvish-1
For naught that is, from Love remains remote.
The Eternal Wisdom made all things in Love:
On Love they all depend, to Love all turn.
The earth, the heaven, the sun, the moon, the stars
The center of their orbit ends in Love.
By love are all bewildered, stupefied,
Intoxicated by the Wine of Love.
From each, a mystic silence Love demands,
What do all seek so earnestly?
“Tis Love. Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts,
In Love no longer “Thou” and “I” exist,
For self has passed away in the Beloved.
Now will I draw aside the veil from Love,
And in the temple of mine inmost soul
Behold the Friend, Incomparable Love,
He who would know the secret of both worlds
Will find the secret of them both, is Love.

— Maulana Farid-uh-din

In the Holy Quran God has said ” He indeed succeeds who purifies it(the heart).” The heart is the greatest of all mysteries in the physical realm. it is a doorway to the Divine. A window to the spirit world. The heart is the meeting place of the two worlds. The heart is the very Throne of God. when the heart is clear we receive the divine messages of spirit in our visions at night. an unclear heart blocks the messages from spirit that we receive while sleeping. in the Holy Quran Allah says “every night Eye take the soul unto Myself, and return it to the body upon the waking of the sleeper.” Every night the soul goes to what eye call “night school.” every night the soul receives impressions/lessons/images from the Divine. the heart is like a window for the unseen world/spirit plane. if a window is dirty, light can not shine through it. if a window is clean, the light shines though effortlessly. it is the same with the heart. when the heart is pure/clear the lessons the soul learns in “night school” are conveyed to the mind. if the heart window is not pure the images/lessons can not pass from the spirit realm to the mind of the seeker.

in the Holy Bible God/Allah has said “sometimes when Eye want to give you something, Eye give it to you while you are sleep.” in the Holy Quran, again God/Allah has said ” Eye speak to them from behind a veil.” the sufis have found this veil to be the images/symbols one sees in their sleep. the dream world is a map for the traveler of the path. the stations of the soul, and what level of the chakra system the seeker is at, are often conveyed in the dream world. with a pure clean heart these messages/symbols can be received by the mind to be interpreted by the traveler. On the path to Self/God realization the mind, heart and soul must be purified in that order. First the mind must be made pure, then the heart, and finally the soul. the HEART is the meeting place of the mind and the soul.

the Holy Avatar Jesus(peace be upon him) said “the kingdom of heaven is within you.” this heaven that HE spoke of is none other than the HEART. in the Upanishads the mystic hindu ascetics have affirmed that the dwelling place of the Lord Purusha in the body is the Heart. the way of the sufi is the way of the heart. Love is the ruler of the heart. when the heart is ruled by LOVE LOVE LOVE, there is no limit to the heights a spiritual seeker can reach. in the chakra system, the fourth chakra is located inside the heart. the fourth chakra is the seat of LOVE. on my first visit to senegal in 1996, my sufi master Cheikh Bethio(ya nafi yag Thioune) said to me ” the only one closer to Allah than you is the one who loves Allah more than you.”  prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has said that God said ” I can not fit into the heavens or the earth, but I fit into the hearts of those who believe in ME.”   may we all make the pilgrimage of the heart to realize and know the true reality of Love, God and the self !!!

“the closest place to meet Allah/God is in the heart” -Noble Drew Ali.

Eye once beheld a most beautiful effulgent LIGHT, about the size of a thumb, in my vision. the LIGHT spoke to me and said ” I AM a secret deep within your heart. know Me and worship ME before you leave this earth.”

love and light – sufi

786 the way of the sufi is LOVE !

Saliou Thioune

….to Love. from Love. with Love…..knock and the door will be opened . seek and u shall find… my sufi journey started in 1996. in 1996 eye was blessed to travel to senegal west africa in search of a spiritual master/sufi cheikh. eye left for senegal with a one way ticket and a backpack. arriving in senegal eye did not know a soul. all eye had was the name of a contact person who was suppose to meet me at the airport with a sign that had my name on it “Qiyamah Abdallah.” eye spent 3 days at my host house before meeting my master. upon meeting my master, eye never saw my host again.

the first thing my master, Cheikh Betcio, said to me was ” as soon as you step foot into this house, Allah has began to bless you.” Then Cheikh Betcio spoke about love saying “the only one closer to Allah than you, is the one who loves Allah more than you.” the way of the sufi is LOVE. sufism is the way of the heart. sufism is the unification of the 4 Lights in the inner chambers of the heart. in the heart of all truth seekers there are for Lights: the Light of Allah, the Light of Muhammad, the Light of the Master, and the Light of the Soul. each of these four lights resides in one of the chambers of the inner heart (Qalb). the sufi way is to unite these four lights through the vehicle/power of LOVE. in fact these 4 lights are manifestations of Love. Love was a hidden treasure that wanted to BE known. ALLAH-LOVE sent itself(Muhammad), to itself(the Soul), through a point of manifestation on the physical plane(the Master), to teach the way of UNIFICATION of the four LIGHTS of love. the Beloved, Love, wanted to be known, so it polarised ITSELF, thus creating the Lover, to contemplate, see, know and ultimately LOVE itself through the vehicle of the lover….the path of the sufi is LOVE….

786. . . Eye DON’T want to go to heaven !

12

May the Peace of Allah, your True Self, be with you. The Self Is All. All is The Self. The Divine Self manifested on this plane of duality to Know It Self. All Is One. Duality is an illusion created by the mind and the false since of “i”. There is no “i” separate from Allah. “Hu am I.” Allah is Allah. Allah is All. The only Reality that exists is One. This One is your True Self. Wake up from the dream of a false since of separateness from the Divine. If you do not find Allah in your Self, you will never find Allah. If you do not Know Allah as your True Self, you will never Know Allah. Allah/God/Brahman/Yahweh are all names of your True Self. Die before you die, the way of the sufi…

When you melt, dissolving in the Unity Ocean of Allah Almighty then you may understand the meaning of “Fani-Fillah” (Annihilation in Allah). When you abandon your position as a being in existence, when you become as a drop of rain falling from the sky and are immersed, united in that Ocean of Divine Unity, then no one can ask where that drop has gone: the drop became an Ocean.”— beloved Maulana Cheikh Nazim- sultan ul Awlia

Once when eye was sitting with my Cheikh in Senegal, i looked at him and said “Cheikh Betcio, eye don’t want to go to heaven.” My beloved Cheikh looked at me and said, “I don’t want to go either.” Then he went on to explain the Divine Proximity of Allah, which he explained, is Beyond Heaven. In the Holy Quran in Surah Waqia Allah describes three groups in the next life/world: the people on the left, the people on the right, and the foremost. It is this group, the foremost, that the sufi tries to be with, in the Divine Proximity of Allah.

It was the great sufi Cheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani who said, ” i studied the heavens and found a flaw in heaven. Heaven is not eternal. It was at this point that i turned my face towards that which is eternal, Allah.” He, may Allah grant him more Light from Nur Muhammad (alay hi salam) also said “sufism is two steps, one step out of this world into the next world/heaven, and one step out of the next world/heaven into the Divine Presence.” My cheikh said that the difference between the Divine Presence and heaven is greater than the difference between heaven and hell…heaven is the hell of the sufi. Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba said, “heaven is for my lazy disciple.”

786. . .life is like a kung fu movie

786… Uni-verse… The multiple manifestation of the ONE… From beyond duality, the Self shines eternal. Knowing no birth and no death, the Self is IMMORTAL…. not the mind, not the body, not the emotions. Neti neti. The SELF IS… take a second and point to your Self? When you point to your self, where do you point? 9 out 10 people will point to the heart. Why? Because the true SELF is a LIGHT that inhabits the hearts of all hu-man BEINGS. The Self is Light from the Light. The true Self is Divine. Know this Self to be beyond race and gender. Who are you? You are that SELF which is Light. Light is God. God/Allah/Yaweh/Brahman/Ja are names of the TRUE Self. The Self is beyond duality. In fact, the Self is Allah…Be this Self.

LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH—ALLAH IS THE ONLY REALITY…after the mourning salat today me and another brother were building and eye was explaining to him how life is like a kung fu movie. We all have seen the kung fu movie where in the beginning of the movie the star of the film has something terrible happen to him like: his teacher is murdered, his entire family is killed, or he is beaten half to death by the villain. After that, he goes off to find a master who teaches him some real powerful kung fu and he comes back to “kick some as.” in the end he is victorious…this is how life is. Sometimes the trials we experience can almost beat us half to death. We all need to learn some powerful spiritual kung fu from a master to “kick some ass.” in life the obstacles and trials we face will always defeat us if we do not have some spiritual training. Sufism is that training that helps us defeat the trials of life. The sufi way gives the disciple the tools they need to deal with life’s problems from a spiritual perspective.

https://i0.wp.com/truth-revelations.com/wp-content/themes/truth/nous/images/134_3_img_328.jpg

As above, so below. On earth as it is in heaven…all of our problems on the physical plane have their origin on the spiritual plane. So the solution to our problems is a spiritual solution. Ultimately ALLAH is the only reality/power of the universe. When we learn to tap into the power of Allah, all of our problems become like the villan in the kung fu movie that gets his head chopped off in the last scene of the film…if you are in need of some spiritual “kung fu” please seek for a master to teach you…when the student is ready, the teacher will appear

a question for disciples-what is the best method to defeat the lower self ?

786. . . the importance of Cheikh Bethio in Muridism!

Cheikh Bethio

jay bul nala sa ma bop, adunya ak al akirati

chi barkay Serigne Saliou !!!

The only way out of the matrix, is to find One Hu Is out of the matrix. The way of the sufi is realization through initiation. according to sufi doctrine “shaytan is the cheikh of the seeker who has no cheikh.” in the past two weeks eye have traveled from atlanta, to new york leading sufi circles of teaching, learning and zikr. al hum do li la in the past 2 weeks eye have witnessed 2 people take shahadah and 4 seekers take bayat with our sufi order. because of this it is time to share some inner teachings about the bayat with Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba through the living master Cheikh Bethio Thioune.

In one of the circles eye was asked Hu is the Insan Kamil (universal man) of this time period? my answer was ” the only true master that i know in this time period is my cheikh, Cheikh Bethio.” taking bayat through His barakah ( blessing) is not the same as taking initiation with any other cheikh from our order. HE is the only living master of our order that was invested as a Cheikh by His cheikh, Serigne Saliou Mbacke. the other cheikhs in our order are cheikhs by bloodline, family relation to Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba or Cheikh Ibra Fall. Cheikh Betchio once asked “would you let the son of a doctor do an operation on you?” a true master is One Hu was invested to be a master by His or Her master. just because your grandfather was a master of the way does NOT make you a master of the way.

imagejpeg_2%282%29

Serigne Saliou has said to Cheikh Bethio “my yo, yie man.” this means “I am you, you are me.” personally i was in Touba Senegal on several occasions with Serigne Saliou and Cheikh Bethio when Serigne Saliou announced “whoever takes bayat with you, it is the same as if they take bayat with me.” In 2003 i was in Touba when Cheikh Bethio asked Serigne Saliou “what does a disciple receive when they take bayat with me?” Serigne Saliou said “the hands of Allah descend to accept the bayat.” this is in reference to the verse in Quran in surah 48 the Victory where Allah says “the hand of Allah is over their hands” when the bayat is given.

wa min Allah tawfiq- and from Allah success !!!

786..the sufi Ocean of Love !!!

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
