Om Allah Hu ! here we begin the illustrious journey of DRINKING FROM THE SOURCE ! in this most important series of weekly blogs we will drink directly from the Guru Gita. the Guru Gita is a non-dual advaita text from the hindu/vendanta tradition. its main theme is the explanation of the Oneness of Self, Braman(God), the universe and the Guru.
Prostrations to Brahman, the Unthinkable, the Unmanifest, beyond the 3 Gunas(modes of existence), yet the very Self of existence, the supporting Substace/Substratum behind the manifested universe.- Guru Gita verse 1
the Self, the universe, and the Guru/Cheikh are manifestations of one BEing that we call Brahman-Allah-God. the 1st verse of the Guru Gita makes this fact clear. God is unthinkable, beyond the mind. unmanifest, not found in existence, yet immanent in existence and the substance beyond the outward form of existence, the universe. the Guru Gita starts from the lofty view point that all of existence is the direct manifestation of Brahman-Allah-God.
the sufis have a saying “Allah veils/hides Himself with Himself.” there is no other thing to veil/hide Allah because Allah is All. the same Allah is the essence of ALL forms and the Self. the Guru Gita starts with the concept of transcendence and imminence, first saying that Brahman(God) is beyond the 3 gunas(modes of existence) ie transcendent and then affirming that Brahman IS the substance of the manifested universe. in the sufi way we have the exact same concept. La ee la ha ill Allah on an inner esoteric level means Allah is the only reality !
from beyond the veil of the mind, Brahman-Allah-God manifest as the Self of all beings in existence. it is the goal of the seeker to know and BE/manifest this true Self, that is beyond the mind and all false concepts of self. in this series of blogs we will DRINK FROM THE SOURCE to obtain a level of clarity and certainty of the Oneness of the Self and God. it is the Guru/Cheikh who is ultimately the key of awakening for the jiva/soul to awaken to its true identity/nature. please feel free to ask any questions as we Drink from the Source. . . . om shanti- as salam wa laikum

sufi: namaste oh great Swami Shivananda Giri
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 thesame 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 and the feet of a Freed One who has perceivd Truth through thatpath 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 thesame 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 grat being of Light
the just took differing trails up the same mountain and reached the only peak there is to be reached
all of them inwardly witnessed thesame sorts of phenomenon
whatever necessary for their varying karma and dharm
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 today between sufi ananda and Swami Shivananda Giri
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

Everyone knows that the ocean contains the drop. Few know that the drop contains the ocean. That which comes from perfection is perfect. A perfect artist paints a perfect picture. You or I may see flaws in the painting, but the perfect artist
sees it as perfect. The illustrious Buddah has said “ 99% of our problems only exist in the mind.” When you ask yourself “ Who am I,” the mind paints a false picture of who you are based on your life’s past experience and false ideas and beliefs
about the self. If your definition of self and answer to the question “Who am I” have anything to do with race, gender, age, religion, or culture, then your answer is related to the false self and not the true self.
We all have two selves: the false self and the true self. Most people live their entire life from the personality of the false self and never learn to identify with the true self. The false self is the self that was created by the society you live in
and the experiences of your life. In most cases the true self becomes like a star actor in a play who’s part was stolen by a younger up and coming actor.
The true self is beyond birth and death, immortal, and not effected by the storms and trials of life.
The true self is not related to the 5 senses. The true self is not the body, mind, emotions, or desires. The true self is not related to race, gender, or religion. The true self is a Light from God that lives in the heart of all beings.
The true Self is the silent witness of the movie that we call life.
People always ask “How do we know that this true Self exists?” The true Self never sleeps, and exists above and beyond the mind. When you are sound asleep and the body and mind have shut down, the true self is there as the witness of
the dream state. When you have a dream and awaken form deep sleep, who is it that tells the dream to the mind? It is the true Self!
Who am I? I am the true Self, an eternal being of light (soul), existing beyond birth and death, living in the heart, having a human experience.

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.
