Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.
Analysis shows there is no-thing .. nothing .. at the
sub-atomic level .. and there was no-thing before the universe at a cosmic
level .. Self analysis shows there is no self at a personal level ..
and yet .. Here it all is and here we all are .. How does
that happen ?
No-thing being every-thing.
Individually .. subjectively this is experienced as no-thing
being some-thing. Us as a subject and other as object.
In the ‘Being’ .. we meet .. we recognise that other people
are, in one sense, objects .. i.e. bodies .. but they are animated bodies with
characters and personalities .. we recognise the life in them and that that
life is similar to our own .. essentially the same ..
The sameness .. the ‘being’ is what we love and long to know
and to be and to share ..
the differences .. the ‘thingness’ .. is what separates us
.. causes misunderstandings and even wars ..
What I am saying is that in a world of ‘things’ we are
alienated .. as a subject surrounded by and percieving objects .. Nobody really
knows how it is that apparent objects upon analysis turn out to not exist ..
and yet they are there .. This is due to a being (as a verb not a noun) which
is not understood and cannot be described because it is no thing and yet it is
what all things exist in .. maybe the essence of what all things actually are
.. therefore it is living .. alive .. Being .. No thing .. being everything ..
experienced as some things ..
To find that Being which is no thing and yet the essence of
all things we must look into ourselves .. It is the only way to find that Being
and when it is found in and as the real self (not the body and not the mind) ..
then it is recognised that one’s real self is the same One that is all other
selves and the essential nature of all that exists ..
That I believe is the work that the human being really was
designed to do .. the work of self-knowledge .. It is also what religions were
ultimately meant to guide to .. self knowledge being knowledge of God or the
Divine or The Absolute .. the No-thing .. which is continually Being
When one knows oneself as no-thing being something then one
knows that all things are no-thing being everything ..
It is the living Being which unites all things and all
apparently separate beings .. wether human beings or animal-beings or
plants-beings or (apparently)inanimate-beings.
We are all one in Being. All is One in Being.
