786…you are in prison!

https://i1.wp.com/www.bmfstore.com/ProdImages/songs-mystic-large.jpg

You are in prison. Please listen to our beloved master Bawa Muhaiyadeen’s discourse “you are in prison.” The whole universe is in your mind. When the mind disappears, where in the universe?
You are in the prison of you mind. You spent the first 9 months of prison in the womb. Then you were born in to the prison of the 4th. Dimension, this world. Then you entered into the prison of your race, gender and the prison of your family. You where also born into the prison of the religion of your family. Then you entered into the prison of school. After school you entered into the jailhouse of your job. Then you entered into the prison of your wife, husband, and children. Then you entered into the prison of old age and sickness. Finally you will enter into the prison of death. And as Bawa Muhaiyadeen said, it is not known weather or not after death you will enter into the prison of heaven, or hell.
There is a way out of these many prisons. In order to break out of prison, you must have something that is from beyond the prison walls that can take you outside of the prison to freedom. The key to break out of prison is:

LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH (God is the ONLY reality)… These words of power, this meditation is from beyond the walls of the many prisons we are in. They are from beyond this world and the next world. Use these words of Realization and freedom to break out of prison. LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH means only Allah/God is Real. Say these words over, and over until they become rooted in your heart, soul, mind and body. When you can say these words with every breath, you will be free from prison…

The Self is Luminous. If you do not see Allah and know Allah within your Self, you will never see and know Allah. Today i was at the Bawa Muhaiyadeen Fellowship in Philly. i had a deep deep deep conversation with Cheikh Muhaiyadeen in the meeting room. His talk is always on the level of haqiqat and marifat. At the end of the talk with me i went into a transcendental state and screamed “Allah” in a very loud voice. i got up and walked out on the room saying, Allah, Allah, Allah…. What he said to me cannot be repeated here… Just know that we are all living in a dream world far from the Divine reality. Our lives have become stages for illusion, false hood, and the race for hell and lower desires. If we do not wake up before we are woke up, it will be the end of a long long dream that was only dust in the wind. i am begging all of my readers to do as i did. Find a living master, and sit at his or her feet until you experience death before death. Please, please, please try to find a living master who can breath the spark of Divinity directly into your soul, and wake U up from the nightmare illusion dream that you call your life…love and light—sufi

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

786…waves on the Ocean

http://dailycupofyoga.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/ay_bk_400.jpg?w=610

All are waves on the same, one ocean, composed, as ocean water is, of the same substance: Spirit. Some of the waves are higher then others. Some waves don’t even want to distance themselves from the ocean. All waves, no matter how high, are in essence one and the same. The difference between the Guru and the disciples, then, lies only in their respective closeness to the ocean: in how conscious each one is of his essential reality. The greater the sense of ego, the taller the wave, and the greater, in consequence, the ignorance. The greater one’s awareness of the ocean as one’s soul reality, the smaller the wave, and also the less his sense of having a separate individuality.

786…The Divine Mother, Divine Feminine and the union of opposites!

786…The Divine Mother

https://786sufiwisdom.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/6a0120a5e00f60970c0120a8d08f2b970b-800wi.jpg?w=235

last night eye had a talk with the Divine Mother

believe it or not

SHE was older than God

It was as if eye was talking to my great grandmother

We sat at the kitchen table

Drank tea

And had a heart to heart talk

Eye asked Her

How did eye become God?

She said

U ate the name of God

And became God

Last night eye had a talk with the Divine Mother

She was older than God…..

 Divine Feminine

Female Divinity is often times over looked. If the woman is not God, then no man is God!!! In the Hindu and Buddhist traditions the Divine Feminine is well represented. My master Cheikh Betchio once said “the secret of Allah is inside of the woman.” My mother was God. When eye started studying the 5% lessons years ago, eye came home and said “mom I AM God.” She said “I know that, just don’t let it go to your ego.”

EGO= ease God out.

From my studies of female Divinity, eye found it best explained in the worship of Shiva and Shakti. The Divine female consort of Lord Shiva is Shakti. Shiva represents the power of God that is transcendent, beyond this universe. When this power becomes active and creates the universe, that power/energy is feminine, and is called Shakti. The creative power of God is a feminine energy. An analogy to explain this is: Shiva is like an ocean of power that is motionless. When that power/ocean takes motion, the waves from the ocean are called Shakti. Thus God is still and motionless. When God takes action, that action is feminine, and is called Shakti

Union of opposites

The sufi path is a journey that takes place on the plane of the soul. The entire journey is a journey of soul transformation. In Arabic the word for soul is (nafs). The word nafs in arabic is feminine. So the sufi journey is of a feminine nature. The spirit in Arabic is called (ruh). Ruh in Arabic is a masculine word. The soul plane nafs is feminine. The spirit plane ruh is masculine. The prophet Muhammad said that “marriage is half of Islam.” This statement has a profound esoteric meaning for the sufi. The goal of the sufi is to reach a unified internal state where the (soul-nafs- feminine) is married to the (ruh-spirit-masculine).

In the ancient Egyptian book of the Dead it says “when the Ka(soul) is united with the Ba(spirit) man and God are ONE!!!

In Islam the outward representation of the unification of the Divine masculine(spirit) and feminine(soul) principals is the KABA in Mecca. The kaba of man is the heart. In essence, the Self realization of God, marriage of the soul and spirit, takes place in the Heart. Love and Light—sufi

786…Mystic Lessons in Love part 3- Mysteries of the Heart

786..Mystic Lessons in Love part 3- Mysteries of the Heart

The whole world is a market-place for Love,
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 suceeds 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 Betchio(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
