This Way is like the Ascension of an incense, the fire is lit, the wood is kindled a red cherry appears on the stick, smoke rises to it farthest height, then disappears. And all that is left is the sweetest aroma forever long for. Serigne Khadim Rasoul
This Way is like the Ascension of an incense
Jalibatul Mu Raqib
and still eye rise
becoming that which existed B4 birth
the scent of a Rose is still a rose
Allah hu ma sali ala say dee na Muhammad wa salim
the fire is lit
Light upon Light
the tornado wind of fire descended
eye die laying prostrate
totally consumed by
towering inferno of Love
turned excrement into gold
inner dimension beyond the 7th
see dratul mun ta ha
the wood is kindled
Hal is quicker
The Cheikh Know
eye love Him
a red cherry appears on the stick
tahalia and takalia
crown chakra burn
stick of kundalini
sacrifice 4 jinn
smoke rises to it farthest height
Nurul Da Ray nee
journey with inner sight
heart wide open
traveling in bliss waves of illumination
beyond the stars
Hu Ha He
Yod He Ho Va
1000x after each salat
sounds like a lot
but compared to the barakat
eye think not
a long long long time ago
And all that is left is the sweetest aroma
cane of wisdom
Spirit plane vibrate faster
like essential oil of lavender
with slightly a hint of jasmin
to know Him is to Love Him
forever long for.
from Wirdul Mak fooz
two become One
sun and moon
ida and pingal
interplay of opposites
spark of Divinity
found in the heart of
love and light
sufi qiyamah abdallah Salihu
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.”
May we all seek for the Divine Presence . . . love and light – sufi

love and light – Qiyamah Abdallah Salihu – sufi
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.
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 ?
love and light—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
drowned in a river
the river took me to the Ocean
the river was
the Ocean was
living in the ever-present now
the illusion of duality
seeing God as
the only Reality
eye live in love
love lives in eye
all EYE see
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…wa laikum as salam wa Rahma tu LA…on the Highest plane of existence, ALLAH stands alone. it is a blessing to see you still have the fire and zeal for knowledge. the first thing you must do is learn to see your Self as Allah-God. do not ask the question or even consider the idea “is the shaikh God?” you must first see and become God, then you will know and see ALL to be God. the sufi starts her journey from the lofty view point of LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH HU – GOD is the only reality. with this knowledge firmly rooted in her consciousness, she begins the journey of Self discovery to manifest God within her Self.
seeing and knowing the master/guru/shaikh as God does play an important part in the realization of the disciple.
at first, because of the false teaching from society, that God is separate from us, it can be difficult to see the Self as God. when a disciple see the beauty, power, and grace of the master, it will be easier for them to see the master as God. with the realization that the master is God comes the wonderful all inspiring idea “if the master IS God, then could it be possible that eye too am GOD?” birds fly because they see other birds fly.
we must remember that the master is the outer manifestation of the inner reality/potential of the disciple. you are the seed, our master is the Flower of that seed in full bloom. know and become God and you will see All to be God. this is the essence of La ee la ha ill Allah.
may your seed bloom in the season of Love…qiyamah sufi ananda
