  Every ray of light removes a veil revealing Divine Presence. Shadows only exist  to bear witness to  the Divine Light!

Enlightenment

It’s not a goal you can achieve - the more you try the more it fly's. It’s not something you can buy or own - the more you pay the less you get. You can’t fake it to make it and i f you say you are - you aren’t. If you try to think it up - you will stink it up.   Yet, e nlightenment is  no mysterious thing. It is a simple, persistent sense of being One with others  and all life. Where the barriers of self-centeredness and separation have dissolved - and the veil between Self and Other has become very thin.   Enlightened beings are not perfect, whatever that means. They are fully human and happily embrace  it, They fall, but they know how to get back up. They can be anyone, anywhere, at any time. When they speak, you don't much hear the words "I, Me, Mine".  They do not put themselves to be 'on a pedestal' -  and they will  not  announce themselves !   They are not distinguished by mysterious looks or books, expositions of mystical doctrine,  nor any particular

Let Negativity Flow Past

  When we react to negativity directed at us, is like throwing a boulder in the emotional stream of our consciousness - it creates turbulence.  If we can remain still, open or expand our awareness to watch the negativity, without reacting, then the negativity becomes like dirty water in a stream flowing past.  Once this happens, we can again see clearly, and act rather than react. When we don't react, the full flow of Divine Presence can manifest in a situation - sometimes through us, at other times we are witnesses to it. When we witness in stillness, we help manifest whatever divine intent is meant to be.    

You can never die!

Oh thou, blessed one, child of Allah, made in that image and likeness, yet of your own unique expression… Know that you have been made by God's Mercy and you will not be unmade; as a star you shine ceaselessly and are forever known by the knower of knowers (Ya Allah -Ya Khabir). You are ever evolving, burning, turning, creating (Ya Bari), and when your star being ceases shining its light outwardly in the manifest world, its light remains and goes on shining ever brighter in the inner world - it is mingled everlastingly in the fabric of manifested intelligences. So, your existence does never cease to exist, its shining turned but inward (Ya Batin), still participating in creation (Ya Khaliq) and birthing new existences (Ya Zahir – Ya Mawjud) - New souls, stars and universes. Ah, recognized or not, we Humans shine outwardly and inwardly as bright as any star in the universe of Allah’s being, and if perchance we think we lose this existence, nothing is lost except our separation.
