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…love and light—sufi

“TO KNOW THE SELF IS TO KNOW GOD”
Phone call from God
Life is short. We must find a way to return to God. When we die, and our bodies are put in the grave, all of our friends and family will soon forget us. All of the problems that we faced in life will come to a sudden end. Even if we live to be 100 years old, we will surly be in the grave more than 100 years. If you visit the cemetery you can see tombstones from people that died in the 1800’s. Does anybody remember them? Do we know how they lived their lives? All we see is the year of birth and the year of death, and maybe a couple of sentences about them. Is that all that a person’s life amounts to? A couple of sentences on a stone tablet that birds defecate on?????
We need to wake up to the reality of life and the spiritual calling. When God calls your heart, you cannot ignore or reject the call. With the cell phone and caller ID we can see who is calling and quickly decide to accept or reject the call. With God it is not like that. When She calls you, you may put the call on hold but one day, you are going to have to answer Her call. Sometimes the phone call from God is from a private number and we cannot see the name of the caller. This type of call may come in the form of a sickness, financial difficulty, family problems, or the general trials of life. When God calls often times it looks like a tornado has come into our lives to destroy everything. In the Holy Quran God said, “when kings enter into a town they ruin it.”
During the trials of life we must still the mind and learn to detect the voice of God in the midst of the storm. When God calls, do not reject His call….

What is a Twin Flame?
Twin flames, also called twin souls, are literally the other half of our soul. We each have only one twin, and generally after being split the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together. So you probably haven’t had many lifetimes with your twin.
Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul. It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides, and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin. This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be “practice” for the twin, the Ultimate Relationship.
What is a Soulmate?
Soulmates are our soul family, the ones we do have many lifetimes and experiences with, who help us grow and evolve, create and dissipate karma. According to ancient wisdom, when the soul is “born” or descended from Source, it is created in a group. The souls in this group are our soulmates, ones who are very like us in frequency makeup. Then each of these souls is split into two, creating the twins.
A soulmate is someone you are close to at a soul level, and with whom you have had many shared experiences in different lifetimes, in various kinds of relationships — siblings, parent-child, best friend, as well as romantic relationships. There is a deep love for each other, and a spiritual bond that sets them apart from the superficiality of most other people in your life. Conversations are generally deep, about personal growth and service to make the world a better place. We can have many soulmates in our lives, and they come to us to help us grow spiritually.
Have I Met My Twin?
Twin Flame reunions are the most fulfilling relationships we can enter into as humans, on all levels. However, twin flame couples have been extremely rare on the planet, and for good reasons, which will be described later. Despite this, we are finding that more and more twins are finding each other now, because of the acceleration of spiritual transformation and opportunities for soul evolution we are all experiencing. People are evolving and learning and healing at such a fast rate that they are getting ready for their twins faster. What used to take lifetimes to learn and heal, people are now going through in years or even months. This is the astounding level of acceleration we and the planet are going through.
When twins get together, it is for some kind of spiritual service work. This is their primary reason for finding each other, because through their union a huge birthing of creative energy is released, to be used for their mission together. More and more twins are attempting to get together now to help the planet and humanity make a big shift forward in consciousness.
However, many of these attempts at reunion are unsuccessful because the individual people are not quite ready for the intensity of a twin flame union. It is more intense than any other union, and this intensity is at a soul level, not as much in the physical or even emotional bodies. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t a good attraction at those levels as well, but the strongest attraction is of spirit. This is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a twin soul. Many people think they have met their twin because the attraction is so intense, but it is a karmic attraction, one of need or bodily desire rather than the Divine Love of twins.
Your chance of meeting and staying with your twin depends on how evolved your soul is, and how much of your baggage from this and past lives you have cleared. The biggest reason twins have to separate after coming together is their individual emotional baggage. Because in the presence of your twin, there can be nothing between you, nothing blocking your closeness. This means that everything comes up for healing that you haven’t previously healed. Everything!
When twins reunite, both of them experience an acceleration of their spiritual growth and awakening. They get on the fast track of learning about esoteric wisdom and experiencing other states of consciousness. They usually haven’t been together all that often during their series of lives on the planet, and so their backgrounds may be different. Yet, there is a closeness and similarities of spirit that are almost uncanny, noticed in many ways, such as looking back at yourself when you look at your mate, and a remembering of the distant past when you first split up.
Guidance is strong with these relationships, and usually one or both have a good channel for communication with Spirit. Their connection is telepathic, and hugging each other is like coming home for nourishment.
May you meet Your Twin Flame………….. http://www.786sufiwisdom.com

on the mystic path you will find some travelers who are completely INTOXICATED with God!!! this is the case for one of my teachers named Cheikh Muhaiyadeen in philadelphia. he is most definitely “not” here. one day he was seen riding his bike in west phily and a friend of mine asked him “where are you coming from Cheikh Muhaiyadeed?” my friend said the cheikh looked at him smiled and said “eye just came back from mecca!” the next time eye saw my friend he said “your teacher Cheikh Muhayadeen is definitely INTOXICATED. one day when eye was talking with Cheikh Muhayadeen in the kitchen, his mood dramatically changed. he looked at me and screamed in the loudest voice possible “you should be GOD by NOW!” after that he put his coffee cup down and walked quietly into his room without even saying salam.
his words had a powerful effect on me. that night eye could not sleep one bit. eye thought about all of the experiences eye have had on this path, and all the mystical teachers eye had learned from. finally eye came to the conclusion that, yes eye should be God by now. eye have been given all the keys to Divinity from my teachers/masters. eye have see Allah walking on the earth. eye have been in the heavens. so what is my problem eye thought????? time waits for no one. from that day forward eye decided to recommit myself to the path.

the path is very long and arduous. to travel the path a seeker must pack his/her bags with provisions/knowledge for the journey. the provisions for the journey are: tawheed-knowledge of the Oneness of God, –akidah correct belief in God, fiqh-understanding the laws of the way, and tassawuf– the science of perfecting the character and purifying the soul. the true Self is God. it is the false self that dethrones the King and takes over the throne. the sufi path is the way of Self/God Realization through the practice of the esoteric science of islam. there are many esoteric paths that lead to Oneness with God. what is most important is that the seeker, chose ONE and stay committed to that path. all of the main religions have an esoteric doctrine. from the outside the religions look different. from the inner view, inside, all of the teachings are for God Realization. what can be difficult is finding a true master to take your hand and guide you on the PATH….

in the Beginning God said “who passed gas in here! was it you Gabriel ?” LOL…but seriously, have you ever seen someone who was so spiritually gone, that they where no earthly good? true mystics have the best since of humor. we have all seen statues of the laughing Buddha. on the spiritual path finding balance is a must. often times it can be difficult for one who has beheld the highest spiritual truth in life, to stay on the ground where they are needed. when eye first started out on this journey, eye had visions of living under a bridge living off the earth.(the good old days) the sufis say “the one who has only Allah in their heart will have the world in their hands.” this is complete balance.
money is not the root of all evil. the love of money is the root of all evil. material possessions and wealth are only a problem on the path, if they inter into the heart. it is ok to have money and possessions as long as you are not possessed by money and possessions. so you may ask why do the spiritual teachings say renounce the world, give up everything if you want travel the spiritual path? the inner meaning of this is “do not hold anything in the heart or mind other than GOD!!!” Lord Krishna- Hari Krishna Hari Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hari Hari- says in the Gita “the highest yogi in not the yogi in the mountains dreaming about the city. the highest yogi is the yogi in the city dreaming about the mountains.” what good is it to go on a spiritual retreat anywhere, if you carry everything you left behind with you, as thought forms, in your heart and mind???
our beloved Prophet Muhammad (alay he salam) said “be in the world as a traveler, and travel LIGHT.” becoming and BEING empty is foremost in the Buddhist dharma(teachings). one of my favorite sayings of the Buddha is “emptiness is form and form is emptiness.” we must become empty of all other than God without losing touch with all other than God. this is the balance! one of my sufi teachers in senegal, who was a very high master of the way, once said to me “God-Allah enters into the void.” when we become empty, God enters. in fact, it is not that God enters, becoming empty removes from the self, that which was not allowing the light of God to manifest though us that was already there. when we become empty, we lose the ego and since the “I” exist. when we lose this false since of “I”, we begin to function from the view point of “we”, not seeing ourselves as separate from others. remember we are all individualization of God who is ONE. in reality there is no “I” and “you”. there is only GOD…
love and light—sufi
one sufi master once said “eye spent 40 years talking to God, and the people thought eye was talking to them.”
today on the bus on the way to work God was there!!! there were two ladies on the bus having church this morning. WOW!!! this is going to be a good day eye thought. one of the ladies said “i cant wait for God to show UP. i cant wait for Him to come back.” now me being HU EYE AM, eye thought to myself, She is God! God does not have to come from anywhere! God is all and everything, OMNIPRESENT! out of nowhere (since they were talking about my favorite subject, God) eye said “eye sure hope God shows UP soon.” amen the two ladies said as eye got of the bus.
God shows UP!!! now this is real talk. eye just happen to be a GED/ESL teacher for the public school system in philadelphia. after the bus experience, guess who was in my class today- GOD….at the back table in my class 6 students started having church. 3 older african american women and 3 younger hispanic women to be exact. right in the middle of my class during “church”one of the younger sisters started talking about a dream she had where an older black women was talking to her about God!!! she said the lady in her dream(which she had about 5 months ago) was the lady sitting next to her who was preaching/teaching. OMG when she said that IT WAS ON!!! eye mean tears of joy, one older lady got the Holy Ghost and started speaking in tongues!!! you got to LOVE GOD when HE shows UP in any form!
being a mystic, eye love GOD in all of Her forms. eye love it when God shows UP like that in an unexpected place. yesterday on 52st, in da hood, a perfect stranger paid for something eye needed in a corner store without me asking. the brother just stepped up, pulled out some money and said “eye got you old head.” God shows UP! now eye will never know what made the brother want to pay for my stuff like that? but it touched me in such a deep way that eye could see that GOD IS THE ONLY REALITY. God is beyond religion. God is beyond having just one way to worship and KNOW Him. God was on the bus this morning. God was in my class today. and yesterday in the corner store, God had on a musty dirty jacket with some sagging jeans!!! we must learn to see God when He shows UP! God is there in so many ways. if we could just slow down and pay attention. live and BE in the NOW. we would see God now! the illustrious Buddha one said “every instant in a chance for ENLIGHTENMENT.”” eye once said to one of my 5% brothers “A God. B God. C God”…love and light—sufi
Die in this love!
If you die in this love
your soul will be renewed
Don’t fear the death
of that which is known
If you die to the temporal
you will become timeless
Cut off those chains
that hold you prisoner
to the world of attachment
Die to the deathless
and you will be eternal
and come out of this cloud
When you leave the cloud
you will be in the effulgent moon
Die to the din and the noise
of mundane concerns
In the silence of love
you will find the spark of life
