786…life: as it happens

sufi OM sat chi ananda

sufi OM sat chi ananda— on my way to work this morning…

life: as it happens is Beautiful. there is soo much beauty all around us. if we could just STOP, or even sloooow down. we could see and feel the beauty of life AS IT HAPPENS. a smile from a stranger is beauty. today on the subway, eye saw a sister dressed in full islamic dress. all you could see was her eyes. but what bag was she carrying??????? she had an over sized Victoria Secret bag!!! to me, the contrast of this was pure BEAUTY. eye was walking to the trolley, and eye do live in the hood, as eye passed the free health clinic, an elderly woman looked at me in amazement and asked “are you a Buddhist?” when eye looked at her, smiled, and said “yes” the biggest smile appeared on her face!!! even though she only had about 6 teeth, be nice, all eye could see was BEAUTY…my aura is so peaceful that people often think that eye am a Buddist (and eye AM) Om mani pad me Hung! islam has been given such a bad rap that it is not associated with peace anymore. once, in phily, eye was walking past a muslim brother with my prayer beads. guess what he said to me??? ” peace my brother, we have prayer beads in islam too.” LMAO…that was amazing…eye just smiled and said could you please tell me a little about islam? life as it happens is beautiful.


as it happens



life is



a smile from a stranger

the book of life

has wisdom

for those who


slow down

to turn the pages

not rushing by

without ever




the illustrious Buddha said ” every instant is a chance for ENLIGHTENMENT.” eye often ask myself, if eye do like the Buddha did, and just stop, go sit under a tree and meditate, will eye too reach Nirvana?in islam we have five daily prayers. each prayer is spread out during the course of the day, from befor sunrise, to just before going to sleep. imagine if you did tai chi, yoga, or meditated 5x a day? would you be at peace? this is what the 5 daily prayers does for a sufi. the salat (islamic prayer) is a form of yoga(union with the Divine). all of the positions in salat can be found in the yoga postures by different names. the positions are also found in the hieroglyphics of the pyramids!!! our beloved prophet Muhammad(alay he salam) once asked his companions “if you took a bath in a river in front of your house five times a day, would your outside be clean?” they all said yes. then the prophet said “this is what prayer 5x a day does for the soul.”

life as it happens is Divine… in the light of LOVE…..sufi ananda

165…Phone call from God

786… Bis-Me-La-Ir-Rahman-Ir-Raheem                                                                                     

Phone call from God

dear friend,
Life is short. We must find a way to return to God. When we die, and our bodies are put in the grave, all of our friends and family will soon forget us. All of the problems that we faced in life will come to a sudden end. Even if we live to be 100 years old, we will surly be in the grave more than 100 years. If you visit the cemetery you can see tombstones from people that died in the 1800’s. Does anybody remember them? Do we know how they lived their lives? All we see is the year of birth and the year of death, and maybe a couple of sentences about them. Is that all that a person’s life amounts to? A couple of sentences on a stone tablet that birds defecate on?????

We need to wake up to the reality of life and the spiritual calling. When God calls your heart, you cannot ignore or reject the call. With the cell phone and caller ID we can see who is calling and quickly decide to accept or reject the call. With God it is not like that. When She calls you, you may put the call on hold but one day, you are going to have to answer Her call. Sometimes the phone call from God is from a private number and we cannot see the name of the caller. This type of call may come in the form of a sickness, financial difficulty, family problems, or the general trials of life. When God calls often times it looks like a tornado has come into our lives to destroy everything. In the Holy Quran God said, “when kings enter into a town they ruin it.”
During the trials of life we must still the mind and learn to detect the voice of God in the midst of the storm. When God calls, do not reject His call….

786…a rose for TRAYVON

786…a Rose for Trayvon

Every rose has its thorn, the country is still torn

By ice cold stares from will we re-nig again

If eye had a son he would look like Trayvon

Emit Till was spat upon, Willie Lynch is alive and well

Strange fruit swings from a tree in Florida

As one family weeps, a nation slips into dankness

KKK members run for office while, military officers murder civilians

In a world of an eye for an eye

One day

We  will all be BLIND

This is a rose for Trayvon

May Allah bless your soul with the highest heaven

and bring peace to the hearts of your family, OUR family.

786…destiny & the secret of TRUE prayer

it is said in some mystic circles “if you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” in the Holy Quran God has said “God plans and man plans, surely God is the best of planners.” my father once said to me “life is what happens to you while you make plans to do something else.” there once was a guru who had a favorite disciple. one night the guru dreamed that the angel of death would come for the disciple the next night. upon awakening from the dream he quickly summoned the disciple and told him to immediately go to the next village until he sent for him. without asking any questions, and having complete trust in the guru, the disciple left for the next village. ah ha, the guru thought, now that my disciple is gone when the angel of death comes here, he will be safe. that night the angel of death showed up with a smile on his face, which was most unusual for the angel of death who never smiled. the guru asked “you are a being with no feelings or emotions, why such a big smile on this night.” the angel of death replied “God plans and man plans, my appointment with your disciple is tomorrow night, in the next village.”saying this the angel vanished!

whatever will be must be. Gods plan for our life is sure to come to pass. the way to have peace, is to put your life in the hands of God, and trust in Her plan. at times we may think that our life is completely out of order. this is IMPOSSIBLE. our beloved prophet Muhammad(alay he salam) once said “the pen has been lifted, and the ink is dry.” the fate and destiny of mankind was written a long long long time ago, before we even came to this earth. some say that fate and destiny are sealed… prophet Muhammad left one important KEY on how a believer can change there fate/destiny. in one hadith(saying) prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings be upon him) said “the only thing that can out run destiny, is the prayer of the true believer.”

this leads one to think that by true prayer to God, the destiny can be changed…the next question for a seeker then is “what is true prayer?” true prayer is intention + focused thought/words + feeling. the secret of true prayer is feeling. without feeling, prayer is only lip service that does not go past the first heaven(the mind). feeling/emotion is the link between the conscious mind(man) and the subconscious mind(God). this type of payer reaches to true Self, which is God, on the subconscious level, thus producing and effect on the physical plane. there are 3 ways that God answers prayers. 1st-God answers it the way you have asked. 2nd-God answers it by removing something negative that was going to happen to you. 3rd- God gives it to you in the next life. when a prayer is answered in the 2nd or 3rd way we ofter think that the prayer was not answered because we did not see the result/change on the physical plane. it is said by the wise “sometimes when God wants to punish us, He gives us what we ask for.”

786…Dying to Love-Rumi

Dying to Love.

Die! Die!
Die in this love!
If you die in this love
your soul will be renewed

Die! Die!
Don’t fear the death
of that which is known
If you die to the temporal
you will become timeless

Die! Die!
Cut off those chains
that hold you prisoner
to the world of attachment

Die! Die!
Die to the deathless
and you will be eternal

Die! Die!
and come out of this cloud
When you leave the cloud
you will be in the effulgent moon

Die! Die!
Die to the din and the noise
of mundane concerns
In the silence of love
you will find the spark of life

— Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī (Rumi) – Love Poems of Rumi (edited by Deepak Chopra)

786..change the world..a sufi story

786- Change the World- a sufi story.

As the old man sat motionless on his death bed, the only thing left in the room was, his son, smoke from the burning frankincense, and the feeling that the “time” was at hand. On his mind was a few words of wisdom that he wanted to share with his son, that he was sure he would never see again. He gathered his last bit of strength and motioned to his son to come close. When his son was at the side of his bed, he slowly leaned over, put his hand on his sons shoulder and said “Son when I was a young man about your age, I sat out on a mission to change the world. As time passed I found that the world was too big for one man to change, with all of its problems. So I changed my focus, and set out to change our country. As time passed I could not change our country with all of its problems. I changed my focus again and decided to change our state. When this did not work I decided to change our city, but the problems of our city and state were too much for one man to handle, so I decided to just try and change our neighborhood. Son, as you know there are too many problems in our neighborhood for one man to solve. Now as I lay on my death bed, I have come to the realization that if I would have just set out to change myself, that would have changed our home, which would have had an effect on our neighborhood. The change in our neighborhood would have had an effect on our city. This would have had an effect on our state, which would have in fact helped change our country. Changing our country would have brought forth a change in the world.”

With these final words, the old man took his final breath, laid down, closed his eyes, never to open them again. In the Holy Quran Allah has said “Allah does not change the condition of a people until they first change that which is within THEMSELVES.” Please think about this…love and light—sufi


786…Approaching Divinity

786…..Approaching Divinity

Becoming transparent, I manifest divinity me, myself, and I, 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; I have been in heaven several times. When the serpent starts to climb I am intoxicated by celestial wine. Engulfed by the light, in reality I do not exist. The lover dies in the love of the fire of the beloved’s kiss. I am that I am. I am approaching divinity. 18,000 universes exist inside of me. The self of the self can only be measured by infinity. Definitely, definitively I 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 the heavens opened. Some things are not to be spoken. Extreme states of bliss preceded gnosis disappearing in oneness from the closeness-Becoming transparent, I manifest divinity me, myself, and I form the Holy Trinity, in oneness. My essence knows no multiplicity. The vibration of light slowed down made me. – Sufi
