The whole world is a market-place for Love,
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.”
love and light – sufi
Divine Mind Shine. Your thought words and actions create/determine your experience/ Reality. the pre-sent is pre SENT by your past thoughts words and actions. Your thoughts determine your experience. All is consciousness/mind. On earth as it is in heaven. the inner meaning of this prayer is earth=manifestation, heaven=mind. as above so below has the same esoteric meanings/implications. All things on the physical plane(below/earth) first manifest on the mental plane(above) from the spiritual plane(heaven). The great Avatar Jesus has said in the Bible “the kingdom of heaven is within you.” the spirit plane(heaven) is pure consciousness. we shape the spiritual plane by our thoughts. All and everything exist in potential form on the spiritual plane. our thoughts/consciousness give shape/form to the potential realities that exist on the spiritual plane.

jay bul nala sa ma bop, adunya ak al akirati
chi barkay Serigne Saliou !!!
The only way out of the matrix, is to find One Hu Is out of the matrix. The way of the sufi is realization through initiation. according to sufi doctrine “shaytan is the cheikh of the seeker who has no cheikh.” in the past two weeks eye have traveled from atlanta, to new york leading sufi circles of teaching, learning and zikr. al hum do li la in the past 2 weeks eye have witnessed 2 people take shahadah and 4 seekers take bayat with our sufi order. because of this it is time to share some inner teachings about the bayat with Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba through the living master Cheikh Bethio Thioune.
In one of the circles eye was asked Hu is the Insan Kamil (universal man) of this time period? my answer was ” the only true master that i know in this time period is my cheikh, Cheikh Bethio.” taking bayat through His barakah ( blessing) is not the same as taking initiation with any other cheikh from our order. HE is the only living master of our order that was invested as a Cheikh by His cheikh, Serigne Saliou Mbacke. the other cheikhs in our order are cheikhs by bloodline, family relation to Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba or Cheikh Ibra Fall. Cheikh Betchio once asked “would you let the son of a doctor do an operation on you?” a true master is One Hu was invested to be a master by His or Her master. just because your grandfather was a master of the way does NOT make you a master of the way.
Serigne Saliou has said to Cheikh Bethio “my yo, yie man.” this means “I am you, you are me.” personally i was in Touba Senegal on several occasions with Serigne Saliou and Cheikh Bethio when Serigne Saliou announced “whoever takes bayat with you, it is the same as if they take bayat with me.” In 2003 i was in Touba when Cheikh Bethio asked Serigne Saliou “what does a disciple receive when they take bayat with me?” Serigne Saliou said “the hands of Allah descend to accept the bayat.” this is in reference to the verse in Quran in surah 48 the Victory where Allah says “the hand of Allah is over their hands” when the bayat is given.
wa min Allah tawfiq- and from Allah success !!!
love and light – Qiyamah Abdallah Saliou – sufi
what is the Self? who am “i” ? from beyond duality the Self shines pure Light, truth, bliss, and consciousness.
in all of the uni-verse the greatest thing one can know is the Self. in knowing the true Self one will know God !!!
dreaming the illusion of a separation between Self and God, man/woman exist in a state of pure ignorance. removing the
“idea” of a separate existence of the Self from God, is to awaken to the true nature of BLISS.

this week we will begin an in-depth study of an ancient non-dual advaita text devoted to knowing the Self-Atman-Brahman-Allah.
the series of essays will be called “Drinking from the Source.”
are you ready to drink….until the point of intoxication?
The Divine Mother
last night eye had a talk with the Divine Mother
believe it or not
SHE was older than God
It was as if eye was talking to my great grandmother
We sat at the kitchen table
And had a heart to heart talk
Eye asked Her
How did eye become God?
U ate the name of God
And became God
Last night eye had a talk with the Divine Mother
She was older than God…..
Female Divinity is often times over looked. If the woman is not God, then no man is God!!! In the Hindu and Buddhist traditions the Divine Feminine is well represented. My master Cheikh Betchio once said “the secret of Allah is inside of the woman.” My mother was God. When eye started studying the 5% lessons years ago, eye came home and said “mom I AM God.” She said “I know that, just don’t let it go to your ego.”
EGO= ease God out.
From my studies of female Divinity, eye found it best explained in the worship of Shiva and Shakti. The Divine female consort of Lord Shiva is Shakti. Shiva represents the power of God that is transcendent, beyond this universe. When this power becomes active and creates the universe, that power/energy is feminine, and is called Shakti. The creative power of God is a feminine energy. An analogy to explain this is: Shiva is like an ocean of power that is motionless. When that power/ocean takes motion, the waves from the ocean are called Shakti. Thus God is still and motionless. When God takes action, that action is feminine, and is called Shakti
Union of opposites
The sufi path is a journey that takes place on the plane of the soul. The entire journey is a journey of soul transformation. In Arabic the word for soul is (nafs). The word nafs in arabic is feminine. So the sufi journey is of a feminine nature. The spirit in Arabic is called (ruh). Ruh in Arabic is a masculine word. The soul plane nafs is feminine. The spirit plane ruh is masculine. The prophet Muhammad said that “marriage is half of Islam.” This statement has a profound esoteric meaning for the sufi. The goal of the sufi is to reach a unified internal state where the (soul-nafs- feminine) is married to the (ruh-spirit-masculine).
In the ancient Egyptian book of the Dead it says “when the Ka(soul) is united with the Ba(spirit) man and God are ONE!!!
In Islam the outward representation of the unification of the Divine masculine(spirit) and feminine(soul) principals is the KABA in Mecca. The kaba of man is the heart. In essence, the Self realization of God, marriage of the soul and spirit, takes place in the Heart. Love and Light—sufi
|In this lecture we will discuss the 7 levels of the soul, the 4 enemies of self, and the path to God-Self…we will have a sufi chanting(zikr) circle after the lecture. this lecture will be broadcast live for free on the Black and Nobel website. 7-10pm FRIDAY JAN. 18TH…..10$ donation at the door. Love and Light|
…the Science of BEing God!! La ee la ha ill Allah – Allah IS the Only Reality!!!
let there BE Light and Moor Light… the science of BEing God has nothing to do with anything external. it is the internal science of purifying the self (taskiya tul nafs). it is the high science of internal al-chem-my on the self/soul. this science turns base medals(human qualities) into gold(Allahs qualities). Noble Drew Ali introduced us to this science by teaching that the higher Self is Allah. in the 5% nation we learned that the “black man is God.” what does this all mean???
Black means original. Man means mind. in esoteric essence/science this statement has no-thing to do with color. it means that the Original mind of man is God. our minds have been grafted away from that which is original, thus becoming devil!!! the way of the sufi is to reclaim the original mind set before the allegorical fall of man/God. how is this done???? this is the science of BEing Allah. in fact, YOU CAN NEVER BE OTHER THAN ALLAH, because Allah is the ONLY reality!!! we create the illusion of separation from God by our negative devilish thoughts words and actions. the sufis say ” say ALLAH until you become that which you are saying.” the way to purify the mind is zikr(the recitation of the 99 names of Self-Allah). witness the build of the God, God Cipher Divine Allah.
this science is NOT for the un-initiated. and normally eye God Allah do not build in public forums because this science is only for about 5% of the population. it was NEVER taught in public. when our beloved Prophet Muhammad-peace be upon Him, would teach this science, sufism, he would only teach from behind a closed locked door, and before He would start he would first ask “are there any new people here.”
there in no birth and death for the soul. Islam knows no birth record. time never was when man was not. man is an eternal Being having a human experience. one of the sufi masters eye studied with in west Africa once said to me “Allah inters into the void.” we have false idols-thoughts that create a false separation from God. the point with-in the circle. the mind must becomes one pointed on God. like a man drowning calls for oxygen. we must call forth the BEing of Allah into our full cipher from the plane of the spirit, to the plane of the soul, to the physical plane thus becoming true God body. “when Allah Loves them, Allah will become the eyes that they see with, the ears they hear with, the tongue they speak with, the hands they grasp with, and the feet they walk with.” Hadith-saying of Prophet Muhammad.
there are 7 levels of the soul that must be purified to reclaim our innate Oneness with GOD. we have been grafted from the Higher self. but before we can come to the level of working on the 7 levels of the soul, we must purify the mind and the heart. Man does not become God. man is an illusion. God exist as man, but man has moved away from His original nature and must remove the illusion through the internal al-chem-my science of Self remembrance and purification….
as salam alaikum—- LOVE AND LIGHT!!!! OM SHANTI OM
sufi andna bey
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
