July 17th MORE ~ so so much is here ~ look deeper

Please do not share this Sangatha material with others. For now it is private.

Note #2: Pir Vilayat loved the concept of a Hologram. And perhaps we are moving towards the new kind of freedom — that is Holographic. It used to be we thought linearly. We learned by the habit of mind that is caught in time and rational, scientific like thought patterns. We would go do a Shahabuddin event and as soon as it ended, we looked towards the next one, as if we and the teachings were incomplete. Now, in the July 17th every little piece is like a hologram — it is complete upon itself. And Perhaps we too are complete upon ourself .

What We Can Practice Though Out The Day


~ Truth ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

The face of truth is open, 
The eyes of truth are bright, 
The lips of truth are ever closed, 
The head of truth is upright.

The breast of truth stands forward, 
The gaze of truth is straight, 
Truth has neither fear nor doubt, 
Truth has patience to wait.

The words of truth are touching, 
The voice of truth is deep, 
The law of truth is simple: 
All that you sow you reap.

The soul of truth is flaming, 
The heart of truth is warm, 
The mind of truth is clear, 
And firm through rain or storm.

Facts are but its shadows, 
Truth stands above all sin; 
Great be the battle in life, 
Truth in the end shall win.

The image of truth is Christ, 
Wisdom’s message its rod; 
Sign of truth is the cross, 
Soul of truth is God.

Life of truth is eternal, 
Immortal is its past, 
Power of truth will endure 
Truth shall hold to the last

What if the Form of the Teaching Stands in the Way Learning


The Candle of Today & Tomorrow

Consider that perhaps in the Universal Worship the six candles in front are the blind people & the elephant. They are all valid experiences.  But that Truth candle is the candle of today. (the one behind & lighting all the others). It is the Candle of Today and Tomorrow. No one can fight with the Truth. You can only fight with limitation. Either one is limited or what you are seeing is limited. Usually it is both — To create conflict. The UW is the embodiment of tomorrow — what humanity will become. We are the children of those six. It’s true. Of course it is not limited to six .

Zen Buddism ~ Has been a balance against excessive form


A Five Minute Exercise : What We Are? 

Try taking five minutes and really contemplating what we are involved with. And I don’t mean any faith or order or path, but Really What Is Going On Here? For me. For each of us. As individuals. What is being asked of us? . . . And don’t think you know the answer when you begin the five minutes (You can go longer if you want.) But if you think you know the answer don’t bother to ask the question. It Is Impolite. So really take a look

  1. When I have a strong opinion, and whenever I strongly think I Am Right — It is my nufs reacting. And when I feel a strong need to speak, to get my opinion in, to perhaps talk louder or even interrupt. — It is my nufs reacting. All is a sign I am see my opinion as a valid one but as the better, the true one. — It is me being one of the Blind, fighting with the other Blind people, who too think they are right about what is right. And even if I don’t fight outwardly, inside I separate myself, thinking I am right.
    But what do I know ! I accept my view of God as one valid among omany other valid ones and I even let go of this opinion and in so dong, I lose myself and find there is my soul patiently waiting. – – – My Soul

  2. The 5 min Exercise: Perhaps I have been doing this exercise, slowly steadily building up to it for years. I used to call it Pir’s terms ~ Examination of intention ~ What is transpiring behind that which appears and Convey upon God a mode of knowing. But now I am asked to face myself with a new Responsibility. What is really happening here — What is being asked of me — In This Time right now.
    With some honesty, I think I have no idea what is going on. I feel more like an empty conduit that is only mildly interested in what is flowing through it. For if I attach to it too closely, it clogs up the connection. I know I am also very much a mixed bag. Sometimes gobbling Oreos, watching odd movies and obsessed with the news. But Blessings upon Blessings I keep coming back to something more, something deeply satisfying, such as being with you here now. Love – – – Shams
