786. . . The Opening of mystic Love

The whole world is a market-place for Love,

umut-kebabci-whirling-dirvish-1
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 succeeds 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 Bethio(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.”

786 . . . Let go and BE free – the raccoon allegory

12744496_479809605562720_4562849719590380854_n

i was talking to a woodsman in the forest. he said you know
how to catch a raccoon? i said no, so he showed me a hollow log.
he said we put nails around the edge about an inch apart and tin foil inside.
the raccoon will
put his fist in and grab the shinny object.
but then he cant get his hand out with the object.
the ONLY way he can be FREE is if he lets go.

Rat race

not the human race

trapped inside the matrix

who moved my cheese

The dunya(material world), our passions and desires are the “shinny object.” We can not be free unless we LET GO of our attachments. On a moor subtle inner level our mental concepts, false pride, arrogance and illusions of an individual “i” separate from Allah are ALL “shinny objects” that we must let go to be FREE.  We all suffer from ignorance of reality as it is, mistaking a rope for a snake. We trap ourselves with our many attachments. We worship false idols/images of God that we created with our own minds. ALL we have to do is LET GO and Be Free.

Yesterday eye lived bewildered, in illusion. But now eye am AWAKE. Flawless and serene, beyond the world. From my consciousness the body and the world arise. All things are mine/mind, or no-thing is. Now eye have LET GO of desires, body and world. Eye see the Infinite Self.

5 elements of illusion

drop the mind

no space

no time

-sufi

Abundance NOW!!! in the blink of an eye “this” will all be gone… my mother used to speak of the eternal now. now eye KNOW. eternal ONE. eternally 1 BEing IS existing alone. have you ever been “alone with the Alone?” what an internal experience. eye was blessed to in-sperience the alone state with the Alone-Allah. Allah alone Is. none else has existence. in this alone state there was no: time, place, objects, people, thoughts, emotions, mind or universe as we know it.

the mystic traveler will traverse many states of being/consciousness on the return to Oneness-non duality. all of the states of being/consciousness are relative until one comes to the state beyond states. a state of knowing(with-out thought) that the true Self is ALL. Allah, the true Self knows Him/Her Self through YOU!!!

om

once you Know thy Self, you must BE thy Self. learn to drop false masks/ego personalities created by society, and let your true innate Divine State shine. Its time !

 A new insight removes erroneous concepts limited by time. Free your mind. Don’t go to your grave with your music inside. Sing your song of life now, before the ancient of days come. The universe and all it contains is in Divine order. Outer events do not effect the inner peace of a sufi. All is connected. A snow flake that falls on a mountain in Tibet has an effect on a child in a ghetto in new york. Eye wonder if eye was ever born? Experience of the timeless eternal One removed all concepts of life and death. Inner stillness like lake 1000 feet deep.

thumb-Divine-Mind-cover

AWAKE from deep sleep. Looking back even the mistakes are perfect. Allah is the Only power. Everything that happens in your life is perfect. It could not have happened any other way. F.e.a.r. is false evidence appearing real. There is NO devil/negative force making things happen to you. The only negative force is your own negative thoughts words actions. God says in the Quran” the good is from Me, and the bad(negative) is from your own hands.” In 2016 leave/stop all negative thoughts words and action and Begin to Live in the Light of Love.

Say Bis me la ir Rahman ir Raheem 50x every am/pm. This will block some of the negative karma from your past from having a dramatic effect on your present. – sufi

Hu am eye? the false “i” of duality is an illusion created by the mind.

…on the path of LIGHT, given to us by the african Avatar Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, the true seeker can obtain the goal of

all seekers, God Realization. this path is for those who seek true knowledge of self. knowledge of self must lead to the

experience of the true self as being one with Allah. the essoteric doctrine of tawheed starts with the lofty realization that

ONLY ALLAH IS REAL, and your true self is not other than THAT…by the process of tazkiya tul nafs (purification of the

soul) the seeker will come to know his innate oneness with Allah. the mind creates the duailty of i and Allah as two

seperate beings. beyond this false since of duality above the mental plane, there is only Allah. it is the true gnostic cheikh

that has the sublime sciene that removes this false since of duality. a rope can be mistaken for a snake. upon the

realization that what one thought to be a snake is a rope, the illusionary existence of the snake is discovered. this is the

same reality with the universe and Allah. Allah is all……love and light sufi ananda

786. . . the sufi and the swami – Om Allah !

786...7 principles of Self Realization

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 the same 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 at the feet of a Freed One who has perceivd Truth through that path 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 the same 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 great being of Light

11:40am

umut-kebabci-whirling-dirvish-1

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

all of them inwardly witnessed the same sorts of phenomenon

whatever necessary for their varying karma and dharma

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 between sufi ananda and Swami Shivananda Giri
