“Emptiness” is form. Form is “emptiness”. The Buddha
Eye have seen the Diamond Jewel in the Lotus. It is all empty. Crystal Clear Light. In a flash. Piercing the Veil of the mind. Thunder in Silence ! In the blink of an eye. 1000 lifetimes flashed. Eye can see as if eye never used my eyes before. If only the pen could write. If only the words could say what the Diamond Jewel in the Lotus is. Sometimes when eye walk it feels as if the ground is not there.
It is all a Divine stage play. You are the playwright, and all the actors in the dream of your life. After writing the play, you went to sleep and began to dream. The dream became your life. Your life became the illusion of a false you that only exist in your mind. You created a supporting cast of parents and society that would support you, the main character, in the illusion of your life. There is no one in the play that is not you. You are the only one that exists. Being sound asleep you have mistaken your dream of illusion for a life of substance.
In fact just as the images in the dream are empty, you and your illusion of life are empty.
Diamond Jewel in the Lotus
Sunshine at midnight. Flowers blooming in an ice storm. Rain falling from the ground up to the heavens. Birds flying under water and fish swimming in the sky. A circle square inside a triangle straight line. The oneness of opposites shows the oneness of Being. Can it be that it was all so simple?
God lives inside of a temple worshipping Himself. Only God can pray to God. Only God is real. All is empty. There is only God. Only God, Only God.
Diamond Jewel in the Lotus
Ignorance is the root cause of suffering. Conditioning and robotic behavior foster a state of ignorance. Trapped in the rat race, chasing a dream that only exists in your mind.

drunk from the Love of God
we drank until all the wine vats where
in praise of Rumi
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
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
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….

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….

The blessed month is hear
The fast is a quickening
All eye see is Light
Return of the sufi jedi…LOL …last night we sang a song to God that caused the heavens to open and the angels to descend. Our sufi school in phily is in da hood. Most of the people can’t believe we are Muslims because we have Native American, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Christian and Jewish symbols hanging up in our school. Yesterday we had a cookout for the neighborhood children during our fast. We prayed the sunset prayer in the school and broke the fast as a community. After the diner, we left the door of the school open and we started chanting Mu hay bu nafi(a sufi poem/qasida by Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba). Then we started chanting LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH in a state of ecstasy. As the chanting grew louder and more intense, the neighbors came out of their house to look in our door and windows to see what was going on. As words of praise filled the air, when eye looked outside there was at least 10 people outside listening. This was a wonderful night at our sufi school in phily. God willing we will have the circle every Wednesday during Ramadan.
Sufism is a rose garden. The sufis say “if you stay around a rose garden, one day you will begin to smell like a rose.” Sufism is a living tradition. Sufism is a fragrant perfume that you must receive from a a living tradition. It is not something you can find in books or on the internet. Sufism is what comes from one heart of a Lover of God to another heart of a Lover of God. Sufism is the path of love and intoxication with God. Love is the wine of the sufi mystic. Last night there was wine in the tavern….and we ALL BECAME INTOXICATED….
LOVE IS THE WINE
we sang a song to God that opened the heavens
last night our cup ran-eth over
wine flowed into the streets
intoxicating the passerby and the on lookers
the tavern stayed open late
we all drank, and drank and drank from the vats of love
until the distillery of love

time never was when man was not
Hari Om tat sat Hung 108x
eye have seen way toooo much
now eye can never accept the illusion
in between worlds of light
eye exit in Oneness
the universe smiled at me
clouds in the sky
formed arabic and sanskrit mantras
high pitch tones in the right ear
signaled the opening of higher realms of existence
am eye the wave from the Ocean
traveling at the speed of Light. eye found the Self to BE God. mystical experiences open complex vortexes of simplicity. states of extreme Bliss and Unity. cosmic multi full body orgasms cant compare to this. eye was kissed by 3 immortal fish. don’t ask me if eye am hearing voices. eye am hearing multi layered soliloquies of harmonic choruses chanted by angels, avatars, prophets and beings of light that can not be explained in words. eye drank 7 bottles of 100% pure jade, amethyst, rose quarts crystal wine with God last night. we laughed together and created other universes. God has become my best friend. in fact….eye don’t see anything in existence other than HER…..
once when eye lived in senegal with my cheikh, eye was visited by an angel. the angle beckoned me to come close. at this point eye stepped on the angels foot and we began to travel into the heavens. the end result of the experience was a state of extreme fear from what took place on the journey. eye was sure that eye would die a physical death sometime that week. in this ecstatic state, eye rushed to the door of Cheikh Betcio to explain to Him what had happened and how eye was scared that eye was going to die. the cheikh looked at me calmly, laughed and said “anyone who says they took a journey to the Divine proximity of God, and did not reach a point where they were sure they were going to die, did not travel anywhere.”
my friends, on this journey be careful what you ask for. eye can assure you, without the proper inner training, and a true spiritual master to guide you, there are some mystical experiences that you can have that will leave you walking down the middle of the street, naked, at twelve noon, wondering if it was all a dream……..the way of the mystic is only for those who have been trained by a master on the inner planes of existence….
…eye ask Allah for forgiveness. normally these types of mystical experiences are not shared with the public. in this new age of Aquarius some secrets of the way are being made public because it is time for the masses to be made aware of other possibilities of existence. forgive eye for my openness with one of eye many, many, many mystical experiences…living in the light of love…qiyamah abdallah salihu…sufi ananda

LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH HU (There is only one being in existence),
ALLAH the one alone. Allah exists before the before and after the after. Without time or space, without a second existing with ALLAH,
ALLAH is ALL.
There is no “you” and no “I” that has real being/existence with ALLAH
ALLAH is ALL
It is the mind of the human being that creates a false since/experience of reality. The mind creates the world of duality that “we” experience
From the view point of the mind and conditioning there has to be four: a me, a you, a universe, and Allah. Upon reaching the level of marifat, Gnosis, the seeker will find that four things thought to exist as separate entities, in fact are one and the same.
LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH HU, ALLAH IS ALL…
Allah is the ONLY reality. All else is illusion. Only God is REAL. The mind creates a since of duality. Above the plane of the mind there is only ONE. This world that we live in is an optical illusion. Scientist have proven that atoms are particles of light. So what appears to be solid matter are actually manifestations of light. Allah is LIGHT. Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. What does this mean? Allah is the first and the last. Allah is the hidden and the manifest. Allah is first without a second. His Oneness is ETERNAL. ONE meaning ALL. ALLAH is All…
The way of the sufi is to remove the illusion of duality from the mind/heart of the seeker. The state of the sufi is Tawheed, Oneness. Try to find a way to exist in Oneness with the All, beyond the thought and the idea of having a personal “I” apart from Allah. LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH means there is nothing, only Allah IS…think of this, and become THIS….
the Uni-verse is 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. Infact the Self is Allah…Be this Self…..love and light—sufi
