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— Cheikh Sufi

the temple is full of idols
365 to be exact
where is the Holy place
where God can be worshiped
there is no room in the temple
the church, mosque, and sinagoge are full
where can God be worshiped???
the temple referred to in this poem in the heart. if the heart is full, where is the room for God? the heart is the house of God. Noble Drew Ali said that “the closest place to meet Allah is in the heart.” the heart is the meeting place between heaven and earth. when our beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be uopn Him) went to the Kabba in Mecca, he found 365 idols inside the Kabba. the prophet removed all of the idols from the Kabba to establish the worship of the One God. the Kabba is symbolic of the heart of man. the heart of man is full of idols: money, property, family ties, race, religion, ego, pride, lust, greed and anger. in order to know and worship God “everything MUST go.”
eye love it when eye visit a store that is going out of business. they always have a sign in the window that says “everything MUST go.” this sign has an inner esoteric meaning and always makes my heart smile because it is a reminder to me to empty out my heart of all other than GOD…..Buddhism has the concept of “becoming empty.” in the beautiful heart sutra of Buddhism it says that all forms are empty, and what we think to be empty has form. the concepts, ideas, and images that we hold in our minds have forms. the forms that we see on the outside are empty. the heart must be made empty of all other thoughts apart from the thought of God.
God has said in one hadith Qudsi “remember Me inside of yourself, and I will remember you inside of Myself.” what does this mean to a mystic on the path of Light???? God and the Self are ONE. there is no separation between the true Self and God. “thou shalt have no other Gods before me.”-Old Testament. the false idols that we hold in our hearts and minds become false gods that cover the true Self that IS God. when we remove all of these false ideas and concepts other than God from our temple/heart, the Light of the true Self, which is God will shine…”everything MUST go.” Living in the Light of Love…sufi ananda

St. James and sufi at Wawa free hoagie day in phily
Love is the ONLY power in the UNI-verse!!! God exist as your True Self. Find, Know and ultimately BE this True Self. my life is becoming heaven on earth. eye only meet beings of light. there is NO darkness in eye CIPHER. this week eye was blessed to meet St. James. eye went with my class to free hoagie day at independence plaza in phily on a field trip tuesday. while siting on the park bench eye noticed a gentlemen collecting water bottles and pouring them on the plants. as eye observed him, eye thought to eye self, this man is a saint. when he came by my bench to pour water on the plants eye asked him “what is your name my man, and what made you want to pour water on the plants today?” he stopped, slowly turned to me , smiled and said ” my name is St. James. I AM a disciple of Jesus Christ. it is a shame that these people are wasting all of this water. so I decided to collect it, and water the plants today.”
after that eye sat and talked with St. James about Jesus, God and how to be a true disciple. he said so many profound things that where amazing. one of the things he said was “God has many names. Muslims call Him Allah. Jamaicans call Him Ja, and my favorite is a Jewish name, Yahweh.” I asked him how did u become a saint . he said “I was born this way. my birthday is Dec, 23rd, two days before the birth of Christ.” he also said that his grandmother was named Marry and his grandfather was names Joseph.
his energy was pure. eye could feel and see the LOVE of GOD in and on him. eye felt like eye was in the presence of a true saint. strangely enough St. James said that he lived in a home for mental patients and that his roommate was really crazy. he could not figure out why his roommate had so much hate and anger in a world full of God’s love and beauty. when he said this, it made me think, this man is not crazy, he is more sane than the avg. person. it is said in the circle of knowers “in an insane society, (and we do live in an insane society) one must appear insane in order to be sane.” at the end of our conversation eye asked him to pray for me. he said “God is going to bless you.” eye smiled and said ” HE just blessed me.”

OM Sri Sat Guru Amma Namaha 108x …Mother of the Uni-verse!!!
U must C God
Before creation there was only God
it is now as it was then….sufi proverb
Eye am developing what eye call “the view of perfection.” with this view of perfection, eye strive to see only God. to experience only God. to not view anything in my life, experience, as other than God!!! the view of perfection is based on the understanding that “la ee la ha ill Allah” means God is the ONLY reality. with this inner gnosis, all is becoming Bliss. eye talk to God. eye walk with God. eye even ride the subway with GOD. God is becoming the reality of my experience. eye often say to people eye meet, ” have a God day.” sometimes they look at me and smile. sometimes they even ask, did you mean to say “good day?” when this happens my reply is, ” now how can a day be good without God?”
God is the All in All. the only 1 that has real Being. God is the substratum of ALL forms. nothing can exist without Him. She is the formless ONE that gives form to all forms. the Buddhist have a saying that eye love “emptiness if form, and form is emptiness.” to me this means that what we see is all empty, and it is that which we do not see that has true form. there are 4 names of Allah/God that some sufis meditate on for Realization. these four names are: the First(al awal), the Last(al akir), the Hidden(al batin) and the manifest (az zahir). it is said in the sufi way that “God is known through Her opposites.” if God is the first, the last, the hidden, and the manifest, what else is there other than God? my beloved sufi master, Cheikh Betcio once said to me ” if you see something and do not see the Oneness of Allah manifest through that thing, know that your understanding of the Oneness of Allah is limited.“ on this day, and from this day forward, eye will strive to see , know, and experience ONLY GOD, with the view of perfection…. live in the light of love…sufi ananda.

inside my heart
a still voice
a soliloquy of
captivated by the melody
in a state
Eye once asked one of my teachers what it would take to find happiness? He
looked at me, smiled and said “happiness is not something you find. Happiness
is something you ARE.” Part of the true nature of the human being is
Bliss(ananda). This Blissful nature is an aspect of God, who is seen in the hindu
tradition as Sat(truth) Chi(consciousness) and Bliss(ananda). Since God is the
true Self, Bliss is an aspect of Self. Bliss also translates as happiness! True
happiness does NOT come from any outside source, like: money, relationships,
sex, or drugs. True happiness comes from the Self/God. True happiness is not
something that comes and goes based on outer circumstances. True happiness
is ETERNAL because God, its source is eternal!!! Eye once saw a church
billboard that said “if God seems far away, who moved?” In the Bible
the Holy Avatar Jesus said
that the kingdom of heaven is within, and we all know that God is in heaven so
God must BE within U. The prophet Muhammad said “God cannot fit into the
heavens or the earth, but God fits into the hearts of His believers.” The search
for happiness is untimely the search for God!
Ironically looking for God is like a fish in the ocean looking for water LOL. Be
still and KNOW that God, happiness is an aspect of your true nature. All u have
is find Self, and you will have found God and HAPPINESS…..
Live more , Laugh more, Love more!!!——sufi ananda
