My Sickness

Lord you are the cause of my sickness.  You dissolved my illusions.  You showed me the truth.  You drowned me in love.  My riddles are for a 'madman'.  I have set my eyes upon your face.  My heart is at your mercy.  Your love makes me reckless.  I fear to come near you, that you will even drive me more insane.

Headless Men

You who are a secret Lover of God.  You who chase after the one whom has stricken you with your illness.  One can not find the Beloved in a sober state; only the lovers of the wine can find her.  They stagger about at night, swapping stories of the Beloved in the tavern.  One man poaches his eyes out.  Another man pierces his flesh hoping to cut out the 'madness' that has stricken him.  They refuse to leave and wait in agony for the return of the Beloved.  Proclaiming, "She is worth the torment and torture.  She will restore the eyes, the body, and the soul.  Any fool with unwavering faith surely is worthy of her visit!"  Those headless men know the secrets of their suffering.  She comes to them only after they have given up everything and are at death's doorstep.

My Letter To God

From Journal Entry 9/17/2011

Oh, Sustainer of all things, you have made me fall in love with you when you looked upon my face.  You sought me out.  You were drawn to my sincerity.  The heavens opened up and swallowed all my sins.  You found me worthy above all kings!  Now I am a slave to you; and you can do with me what ever your will is.

The Dream World-Merging with Spirit

When we are absent from the body, we are present in the Spirit.  To enter sleep mindfully and with the intention of meeting the Spirit- mind of God, is to sow and cultivate the seed of enlightenment.
Job 33:14-18 "For God speaks once, and twice, though man pays no attention.  In a dream in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on man, in slumbering on the bed; then he opens the ear of men and seals their instruction, that he may withdraw man from his [self-centered] purpose and hide pride from man.  He keeps back his soul from the pit."
Dreams can be valuable means for heavenly guidance and insight.  When one regularly practices remembering and interpreting dreams,  then one awakens to one's potential for deep, heavenly communication.

A Beggar

I am a beggar at your door.
Will you have mercy on me?
Please let me in.
I am starving.
I have been roaming this city.
Your light is the only one I see.
Do you not recognize the Friend?
It's been years since you have seen my face.
My eyes haven't changed.
I promised you I would come back to you.
Now how do we begin?

One Heart

Give up all your worldly desires and become one heart.  Two hearts don't fit inside of God.  Your desires are veils of the Truth.  Abandon all things.  Follow the path of the Heart.  It will not lead you astray.  The wounds of Love are the mysteries of the nature of God.  The heart bleeds- taste the blood, know its sorrows.  Then may you truly know the joys of Love; and God's infinite mercy and wisdom.

Open your eyes!  The burning inside your heart is speaking to you; demanding you move.  Don't try to reason with your heart; that which love can only understand.  Movement opens doors to the Unseen; secrets are revealed there for the true seeker.  The truth is better than a thousand half-truths.  The heart of a lover can digest the truth.  They die a thousand deaths painstakingly,  and are born again in the Heart- the very center of God.

The Beautiful Truth

The Origin of Sufism

Sufism has its origins in the second century in Baghdad and Bashra. Early Sufis were absorbed with God. They were mystics and philosophers first and poets second. They spent their time seeking meanings and authorization in the Qur'an and the Hadiths to counter accusations of unbelief levelled against them by Orthodox Muslims. The further development of Sufi ideas through great masters led to an infusion of Islamic culture with the mystical ideas of the Sufis. The impact of ideas was profound on poetry.
The Sufi path is the path of Love where the human soul searches out God and if the grace of God falls upon the searcher, then he or she finds annihilation in God and eternal existence in the consciousness of God. It is a path of loving God through his manifestations. Sufism conveys to the believer to love God, love God's creation and praise Him all the time. Sufism replaces a fearsome and unforgiving God with a loving and merciful one. Since God is unseen and formless, most humans need to find him through his creation and through human love. In loving another human being one discovers the all consuming power of love, while the beauty of the Beloved reduces the lover to a state of helpless abandon. At this point he or she becomes a slave willing to be sacrificed. But this love of the human is illusory love, and if the lover is pure of heart it should act as a bridge to true love, which is the love of God.
God precedes all creation and He existed alone. As it is in the nature of beauty to be admired, worshipped, and revealed, so he created the world so that His beauty could be revealed. It was born as a result of God's desire for the hidden to be known. This world is not absolute as is God, and is only a reflection of the Truth rather than Truth itself. It is therefore transitory. God is Absolute Beauty and Absolute Good, so this creation, however beautiful, is imperfect and represents what is Not-Good, as it is merely a reflection of the Good and not the Good itself. The purpose of human life is to eliminate this state of not-being so that one may attain union with God and become absorbed in the Divine. To transcend the element of not-being one must conquer Self. The Self is conquered only by Love.
Human love is the first stage of love, it is not the end of the journey. The true pilgrim of love must recognize it as simply the bridge that he must walk across towards a higher goal. The nature of 'Typal' love offers some insight into the experience of this journey of love, which involves complex states of being and not-being. Sufis distinguish 'Typal' love from divine love, describing it as a bridge to the real in which the pilgrim must beware of lingering too long, or else he may fail to reach the journey's end.
In the end, the true lover must cross this bridge of earthly love, leaving it behind. For the true lover relinquishing this love is not a loss, since what awaits him or her is far more beautiful and joyous.

The Earth's Kundalini 2012

The electromagnetic geometrical field within the Mer-Ka-Ba field (the Light Body) of the Earth is exactly identical to every human being on Earth.  This Earth kundalini's energy is called the Serpent of Light.
The Precission of the Equinox (POE) is a wobble in the Earth's axis.  It requires a little less than 26,000 years to complete.  As the wobble of the Earth's axis slowly turns in a circle, it eventually points to and passes through all twelve of the heavenly constellations.  The POE enters a new constellation every 2,160 years.  On December 21, 2012 we will be moving into the Age of Aquarius for the first time in 12,920 years.  The axis of the Earth will also be moving toward the center of the galaxy instead of away from it.  At the same time the kundalini of the Earth begins to change locations on the surface of the Earth. 
It has resided in India and Tibet and will move to a new location in Chili and Peru, to bring balance to a new world.  The kundalini energy will shift from masculine to feminine.  Where ever the Serpent of Light settles, the people of the region become great spiritual teachers of the planet.  It is a time of awakening for humans on the planet and many positive changes for the human race.

The Words of Rumi

The words of Rumi seduce me.  They take me hostage.  I become a 'madman' thirsting in the desert of loneliness.  The well of Rumi quenches my thirst.
