Being.

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

Friday 10th March. 2006. Yawm al Jumaa.
17.16.Hrs. Orgiva.

It’s a long time since I’ve just sat and written in a Word Document. Written, one might say, for myself, or to myself perhaps for my own benefit (although at another stage or time, what I write here, could be beneficial to others) “ojala” que fuese asi.

It’s about what one’s looking for, as usual, or as always, and, as always, the core mystic works have the answer/s. It really doesn’t seem to matter wether one calls it “The Vacio” (or The Void) or Brahman, or God or Allah .. or The Essence .. nomenclature is not important at this stage .. all that is important is not even “finding” it .. for there is no place or space where what I am looking for exists, it is not in space to be found nor in time either .. beyond all dualities and concepts one can only either “be” it/It .. or not, as sura 112 says “He is not like any other thing.” It is something to be lived and experienced not something to be talked about .. and yet it is an object of desire, (which desire perhaps blocks the very obtaining of it.) To know Him is to be Him ..(or It) .. He is one’s true self .. so one has to get rid of, or put aside the false self or ego in order to find Him or It.

As Nisargadatta, so perspicaciously says;


There is no such state as seeing the real. Who is to see what? You can only be the real, which you are, anyhow. The problem is not mental. Abandon false ideas, that is all. There is no need of true ideas. There aren't any.

'It is something to be lived and experienced' and when love is the longing, and longing is love then desire bows down ...
