The Only Reality.

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

There is only one reality and that is Allah.Allah is one and He is The One.Everything else comes from The One ,when it splits and becomes two.All the reality which we know is set up in Duality.It is an illusion,not real Reality.The object of sufism is to try to remember this at all times and try to be with The One and not the two.
Everything that we become attached to in this life is illusory and set up in duality,it must always come to an end and must always cause pain and disappointment.The only thing that is Real(which is no thing at all) is Allah.Beyond our imaginations and beyond our minds which work in duality with dualistic concepts.
This understanding of things has beem around as longas man..it is programmed into the yeast of his being and it is his job and duty to re-discover this truth and then try to find it and live it in his life and actions.
In the I Ching it says ,first there was the One and then there were two,and from the two came the myriad things(or the ten thousand things).
The understanding that God or Allah is beyond any concepts has been understood for a long time too.Witness the Tao te King .."The Tao which can be named is not the real Tao."
That'll do..sounds so simple..is so simple really,just very,very difficult!
