786. . .the harder the better

Cheikh Ibra Fall du morom

ken du moum

the harder the better

eye aint no killer but dont push me

travel through time

mind un-twine

a stitch in time saves 9

hind sight is 20/20

WTF

i just want a dollar to by a bottle of wine

eastern philosophy sublime

eye got 5 on a dime

Om mani pad me Hung

sound dumb to sum

let it all drop on the One

eye was born from the hip of a real live lion

3rd eye wide open

dont push me cause im close to tha edge

know- the- ledge

seeds planted

dont take the trials in ya life 4 granite

-sufi

CHEIKH IBRA FALL used to say “the harder the better.” It took eye a while to KNOW just what He meant by that. Looking back on the trials in my past, they helped make me HU eye am today. With-out the heartbreaks and pain, eye would not know the ETERNAL-internal power of Allah. In life, test and trails are like lifting weights in the spiritual gym. During the 1st week in the gym you may only be able to lift 10 lbs, but if at the end of the 1st year u can still only lift 10 lbs…..did you get any stronger? As the soul grows and develops more power, the test and trails become more trying, and they should!

When eye first came to our sufi order an elder brother on the path said “Abdallah, i want the hardest test possible from Allah.” When eye asked Ndiaga Niang why he wanted the hardest test possible, he replied with a smile “with the hardest test comes the highest spiritual realization.” Then he gave the analogy saying the wino on the corner wants 50 cent (not the rapper even though that’s all he is worth) to buy a bottle of wine in the next 10 mins, and a billionaire in Manhattan wants a million$ in the next 10 mins to buy the building the wino sleeps next to. Two different trials for 2 different people, not saying one is better than the other, but u can see the difference in intensity of the test.

In the Holy Quran Allah has said “surely with every difficulty comes the ease.” 99% of our problems in life come from our individual un-enlightened view point of the situation/problem. When you develop true knowledge of self you will find that your problems in life are similar to the unborn child of a barren woman, non existent in REALITY. “The man with no shoes prays to Allah for shoes, until he sees the man with no feet.”- sufi proverb

Relax ya mind let ya conscience BE free!!!!!!!

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.”

786…Got balance ?

in the Beginning God said “who passed gas in here! was it you Gabriel ?” LOL…but seriously, have you ever seen someone who was so spiritually gone, that they where no earthly good? true mystics have the best since of humor. we have all seen statues of the laughing Buddha. on the spiritual path finding balance is a must. often times it can be difficult for one who has beheld the highest spiritual truth in life, to stay on the ground where they are needed. when eye first started out on this journey, eye had visions of living under a bridge living off the earth.(the good old days) the sufis say “the one who has only Allah in their heart will have the world in their hands.” this is complete balance.

http://truepotentialcounseling.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/got-balance1.jpg?w=639&h=425

money is not the root of all evil. the love of money is the root of all evil. material possessions and wealth are only a problem on the path, if they inter into the heart. it is ok to have money and possessions as long as you are not possessed by money and possessions. so you may ask why do the spiritual teachings say renounce the world, give up everything if you want travel the spiritual path? the inner meaning of this is “do not hold anything in the heart or mind other than GOD!!!” Lord Krishna- Hari Krishna Hari Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hari Hari- says in the Gita “the highest yogi in not the yogi in the mountains dreaming about the city. the highest yogi is the yogi in the city dreaming about the mountains.” what good is it to go on a spiritual retreat anywhere, if you carry everything you left behind with you, as thought forms, in your heart and mind???

our beloved Prophet Muhammad (alay he salam)  said “be in the world as a traveler, and travel LIGHT.” becoming and BEING empty is foremost in the Buddhist dharma(teachings). one of my favorite sayings of the Buddha is “emptiness is form and form is emptiness.” we must become empty of all other than God without losing touch with all other than God. this is the balance! one of my sufi teachers in senegal, who was a very high master of the way, once said to me “God-Allah enters into the void.” when we become empty,  God enters. in fact, it is not that God enters, becoming empty removes from the self, that which was not allowing the light of God to manifest though us that was already there. when we become empty, we lose the ego and since the “I” exist. when we lose this false since of “I”, we begin to function from the view point of  “we”, not seeing ourselves as separate from others. remember we are all individualization of God who is ONE. in reality there is no “I” and “you”. there is only GOD…

786…Mahamudra is Enlightenment !!!

dorje.gif (1060 bytes)

  Tilopa’s Mahamudra Instruction to Naropa
in Twenty Eight Verses   

Homage to the Eighty Four Mahasiddhas!
Homage to Mahamudra!
Homage to the Vajra Dakini!Mahamudra cannot be taught. But most intelligent Naropa,
Since you have undergone rigorous austerity,
With forbearance in suffering and with devotion to your Guru,
Blessed One, take this secret instruction to heart.

Is space anywhere supported? Upon what does it rest?
Like space, Mahamudra is dependant upon nothing;
Relax and settle in the continuum of unalloyed purity,
And, your bonds loosening, release is certain.

Gazing intently into the empty sky, vision ceases;
Likewise, when mind gazes into mind itself,
The train of discursive and conceptual thought ends
And supreme enlightenment is gained.

Like the morning mist that dissolves into thin air,
Going nowhere but ceasing to be,
Waves of conceptualization, all the mind’s creation, dissolve,
When you behold your mind’s true nature.

dorje.gif (1060 bytes)

Pure space has neither colour nor shape
And it cannot be stained either black or white;
So also, mind’s essence is beyond both colour and shape
And it cannot be sullied by black or white deeds.

The darkness of a thousand aeons is powerless
To dim the crystal clarity of the sun’s heart;
And likewise, aeons of samsara have no power
To veil the clear light of the mind’s essence.

Although space has been designated “empty”,
In reality it is inexpressible;
Although the nature of mind is called “clear light”,
Its every ascription is baseless verbal fiction.

The mind’s original nature is like space;
It pervades and embraces all things under the sun.
Be still and stay relaxed in genuine ease,
Be quiet and let sound reverberate as an echo,
Keep your mind silent and watch the ending of all worlds.

The body is essentially empty like the stem of a reed,
And the mind, like pure space, utterly transcends
the world of thought:
Relax into your intrinsic nature with neither abandon nor control –
Mind with no objective is Mahamudra –
And, with practice perfected, supreme enlightenment is gained.

dorje.gif (1060 bytes)

The clear light of Mahamudra cannot be revealed
By the canonical scriptures or metaphysical treatises
Of the Mantravada, the Paramitas or the Tripitaka;
The clear light is veiled by concepts and ideals.

By harbouring rigid precepts the true samaya is impaired,
But with cessation of mental activity all fixed notions subside;
When the swell of the ocean is at one with its peaceful depths,
When mind never strays from indeterminate, non-conceptual truth,
The unbroken samaya is a lamp lit in spiritual darkness.

Free of intellectual conceits, disavowing dogmatic principles,
The truth of every school and scripture is revealed.
Absorbed in Mahamudra, you are free from the prison of samsara;
Poised in Mahamudra, guilt and negativity are consumed;
And as master of Mahamudra you are the light of the Doctrine.

The fool in his ignorance, disdaining Mahamudra,
Knows nothing but struggle in the flood of samsara.
Have compassion for those who suffer constant anxiety!
Sick of unrelenting pain and desiring release, adhere to a master,
For when his blessing touches your heart, the mind is liberated.

KYE HO! Listen with joy!
Investment in samsara is futile; it is the cause of every anxiety.
Since worldly involvement is pointless, seek the heart of reality!

In the transcending of mind’s dualities is Supreme vision;
In a still and silent mind is Supreme Meditation;
In spontaneity is Supreme Activity;
And when all hopes and fears have died, the Goal is reached.

Beyond all mental images the mind is naturally clear:
Follow no path to follow the path of the Buddhas;
Employ no technique to gain supreme enlightenment.

KYE MA! Listen with sympathy!
With insight into your sorry worldly predicament,
Realising that nothing can last, that all is as dreamlike illusion,
Meaningless illusion provoking frustration and boredom,
Turn around and abandon your mundane pursuits.

Cut away involvement with your homeland and friends
And meditate alone in a forest or mountain retreat;
Exist there in a state of non-meditation
And attaining no-attainment, you attain Mahamudra.

dorje.gif (1060 bytes)

A tree spreads its branches and puts forth leaves,
But when its root is cut its foliage withers;
So too, when the root of the mind is severed,
The branches of the tree of samsara die

A single lamp dispels the darkness of a thousand aeons;
Likewise, a single flash of the mind’s clear light
Erases aeons of karmic conditioning and spiritual blindness.

KYE HO! Listen with joy!
The truth beyond mind cannot be grasped by any faculty of mind;
The meaning of non-action cannot be understood in compulsive activity;
To realise the meaning of non-action and beyond mind,
Cut the mind at its root and rest in naked awareness.

Allow the muddy waters of mental activity to clear;
Refrain from both positive and negative projection –
leave appearances alone:
The phenomenal world, without addition or subtraction, is Mahamudra.

The unborn omnipresent base dissolves your impulsions and delusions:
Do not be conceited or calculating but rest in the unborn essence
And let all conceptions of yourself and the universe melt away.

The highest vision opens every gate;
The highest meditation plumbs the infinite depths;
The highest activity is ungoverned yet decisive;
And the highest goal is ordinary being devoid of hope and fear.

At first your karma is like a river falling through a gorge;
In mid-course it flows like a gently meandering River Ganga;
And finally, as a river becomes one with the ocean,
It ends in consummation like the meeting of mother and son.

If the mind is dull and you are unable to practice these instructions,
Retaining essential breath and expelling the sap of awareness,
Practising fixed gazes – methods of focussing the mind,
Discipline yourself until the state of total awareness abides.

When serving a karmamudra, the pure awareness
of bliss and emptiness will arise:
Composed in a blessed union of insight and means,
Slowly send down, retain and draw back up the bodhichitta,
And conducting it to the source, saturate the entire body.
But only if lust and attachment are absent will that awareness arise.

Then gaining long-life and eternal youth, waxing like the moon,
Radiant and clear, with the strength of a lion,
You will quickly gain mundane power and supreme enlightenment.

May this pith instruction in Mahamudra
Remain in the hearts of fortunate beings

786…Traveling Man

 786…Traveling Man   

       

I AM leaving on a jet plane

  Eye don’t know if I’ll be back again

  Though one may conquer
a thousand times a thousand people in battle,
yet one indeed is the noblest victor
who conquers oneself.-the Dhamapada

   A light shined in the dark

    the darkness comprehended it not

I died a long long time ago

In a past life

Eye must have been Buddha’s wife

A tear of compassion fell from His EYE

And EYE was born again

Given the name Quan Yin

https://i0.wp.com/www.exoticindia.com/artimages/wf11.jpg

Sounds like Quinn

Worshiped as a divine Deity

People did not know it was ME

Eye made love with the 7 heavens

And Heavens 4th gate opened

Kissed by 3 immortal fish

Traveled through the dark abyss

Total recall

Hari Om tat sat hung

The soul vividly remembers this

Transformed into a luminescent light body

Traveled beyond the universe

Lapis lazuli crystal elixir created

Conscious Oneness with LOVE

Super nova

https://i0.wp.com/www.theangstguy.com/supernova/images/star_supernova_6-bbcimage.jpg

never fell from Gods Grace

behind this face

is HIS face

illusion of duality vanished

leaving no trace

la ee la ha ill Allah

holy hekka ancient Egyptian words of power

Arabic mantra

from ancient Sanskrit text

chanted from memory

all to see

the entire time

eye was only worshiping ME

God-Allah-Brahman

The only Reality

how could this be

advaita mystic dimension

786…the sufi and the hindu—Q & A

What is the purpose of life? How can one be enlighten?
Yesterday
hello Master,,, I asked u some queries,, U havn’t reply me yet !!!

u are the master eye am the student…smile the purpose of life is to become GOD!!! the best way to reach enlightenment is to become the student of one who is ENLIGHTENED… in reality both of your questions are the same. the purpose of life is to become enlightened, ie become DIVINE…
Today
Bt I think nobody can be GOD,,, Yes I agree with U that we can become DIVINE,, but not GOD sir,

God is the Only reality…smile
yeah I understand but we (humanbeings) can’t call ourself GOD

????
Are u a spirtual guru?

it is NOT a point of calling yourself God
the essence of man is God
is thw wave different from the Ocean. just aas the source of the wave and substance od the wave is the Ocean
it is the same with man and God
ha ha ha
spiritual guru,
what is that?
okay I understand, wt u want to say,,, An enlightened personality,
have u experienced Astral???

the astral plane is a very low level in the God relization
and yes, eye have been there several times
woww,, I also wish to experience it in my life.. wd u plz guide me in this regard?

one should not seek for different planes of existence
one should seek for the ONE
Brahman, Allah
in doing this
u will naturaly traverse these different planes of existence
but everybody needs a person under whom supervision he can learn,,, Is this enhance the Astral skill that to concentrate in jungles and places like graveyard at night

are you in india?
where do u live my friend
yes I live in India in JAMMU

there should be a true master in your area
find him or her
it will be good for u
there is not much eye can do for you at this great distance
do u know his/her name, as it is a big place?
how can I search
Its difficult… show me the way

you must raise your vibration by chanting mantra and fasting
by doing this u will draw the mercy of the master you you
the master is in a village to the north east of you
eye can feel his/her presence from here!!!!
wud u plz mention his place?
I’ll surely follow him/her

ha ha cant make it to easy for you
u must raise your vibration and search within
the outer master is a manifestation of your inner reality
Some of your words saying me tat, Man is the master of himself
As u are talking of me.
okay I’ll try my best ,.,., have a gud time sir…

yes but the master on the outside calls forth the manifestation of the master on the inside
gudnight sir

wht difference does it makes

fast on mondays and do some time of weekly pooja to Ganesh with the intention of finding the master and HE will manifest to you if you do all of this with SINCERITY
ALSO FIND AND STUDY THE gURU gITA TEXT
guru gita

6months befor eye met him in the physical relm
smile
2:04pm

Chat Conversation End

786… the swami and the sufi

sufi: namaste oh great  Swami Shivananda Giri

swami:
Namaste and blessings

oh great being of sanatana dharma

please tell me the way to realization

In the forgetting of your true and original nature in order to incarnate as an apparently separate entity, the “illusion” of maya arose

once the illusion is seen for what it is and you remember and recognize the natural condition, the hardest part is done

what is the way to remember this original nature

there are many, any of the “mystical” paths all reveal thesame thing through varying means

just depends which way is more appropriate for you

what is the shortest most effective means oh great Guru remover of darkness

doesn’ work that way

the only variable important for you is does it touch you deeply

find that feeling and the feet of a Freed One who has perceivd Truth through thatpath and then follow what they say

what is the most important aspect of the path

your dedication to it

your single pointed focus on the goal

all the means and methods reveal thesame stuff

they just speak of it in different ways

the Sufi Master, the Yoga Master, the Taoist Master all know the same thing to be True

may the light om om sat chi ananda shine in you as you eternaly oh grat being of Light

11:40am

the just took differing trails up the same mountain and reached the only peak there is to be reached

all of them inwardly witnessed thesame sorts of phenomenon

whatever necessary for their varying karma and dharm

its really not a gain of anything at all but direct and conscious Knowledge

of what is eternally and infinitely the case

The goal is the falling away of the concepts and limitations

this is accomplished best, in my view, by meditation and japa

Guided by One who has already done it

swami : is this making sense?

sufi: yes it is as clear as the blue sky

like the sky, any conditions can appear within it when the circumstnces are correct

yet the sky is never affected by any of the appearances of change within it

“GOD” exists within you as YOU

you have spent lifetime after lifetime seeking only That

all the while thinking you are other than That and separate

this is the way suffering arises

this conversation took place today between sufi ananda and Swami Shivananda Giri

786…in praise of Rumi

Intoxicated

drunk from the Love of God

we drank until all the wine vats where

empty

in praise of Rumi

eye

wish eye could be dirt underneath your holy  feet

your words are pure bliss

multi orgasmic waves filled my heart

when your poetry touched my center

soul to soul

eye wish eye could have drank a cup of wine with you

and whirled in a circle of love with you

till the sun of bliss rose

eye am blinded by the love that flows from you

is there any space in the tavern for me

eye am inebriated beyond return

never to be sober again

eye drank to much of your wisdom

and now eye ask myself

Hu am eye???

in praise of Rumi

love and light— qiyamah sufi ananda

786…in love with Love

In love with Love

In love with the idea of Love

Captivated by the blissful energy of Love

Overflowing with the reality of Love being ALL

https://i0.wp.com/c0486872.cdn.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/love-statue-philadelphia-600.jpg

Love is King. King Love rules in the all expansive city of the heart. Love is a just ruler. Love defeated the army generals of ego, fear, desire, greed, hate and selfishness in a battle that cannot be told in words. With its soldiers by its side( bliss, peace,  honesty, trust, truth, balance and harmony) king Love reigns supreme! Not knowing self a person operates from the lower 3 chakras of base desires, sex, power and control. Knowing Self one operates from the 4th chakra, the chakra of Love. “The greatest of these is Love.” Love is the only power in the Universe. Love rules the cosmos. Love causes the sun to rise and the moon to orbit planet earth. Love heals all. There is NO warrior that can defeat king Love. Love is invincible. When love comes, all enemies cower in the effulgent glare of her Light. Love is the power and vehicle for God. God functions/speaks in and through the language of Love. In this kali yuga(age of darkness) Love becomes the Lamp for the followers of the mystic path to know and return to Oneness with God-Self. In the Holy Quran it says “hold on to the rope of God.” The rope of God is Love Love  Love. Learn to Love instead of hate. Learn to have tolerance and patience instead of anger and power struggles. Walk in the ways of love and become Divine… the true nature of mankind is LOVE…when Love knocks on the door of your heart. DON’T BE AFRAID..open the door and embrace Her…Love is ALL….
