We speak of opposites in this world of Duality..
Ego is the prisoner pretending to be You..
Love is the Self not hiding..
The Mind tells You that it is master..
Love answers; "there is no master, there is only Truth"..
A master requires ego,
Truth only requires Consciousness..
In the end of seeking,
The seeker dissolves into Love..
Love is without ego and is called Freedom...
You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to
Nothing seemed right.
What's the point of bringing gold to the gold mine,
or water to the Ocean.
Everything I came up with was like taking spices to
It's no good giving my heart and my soul because you
already have these.
So - I've brought you a mirror. Look at yourself,
and remember me.
A man of self importance with an entourage of women entered into the space of me..
The boisterous man of wealth and power spoke to me of the illusion of ego..
I walked alone with him outdoors of this room and spoke..
I showed him my car and talked of how I changed the appearance of this manifestation..
Every time that I meet this man, he tells me that he and his wife love me..
How is it possible that a few minutes of direct involvement with the soul would bring such change?..
It is because, I spoke with the soul and not the ego..
Hazrat Inayat Khan speaks of the thoughts of mystics and I nod my head in agreement..
Every desire that I imagined has become manifestation..
This is why the mind must be controlled by Consciousness..
This is why Jesus would always speak of the consciousness of Love..
All thoughts of Love will manifest only good..
They may first appear as pain but will change into the energy of Pleasure..
Love is Reality and the thoughts and desires of Love will release you from pain..
Love within the different frequencies of ego will present confrontations but Love will conquer even these desires of ego..
I am listening to the voice of Gordon Lightfoot, the past enters this consciousness and the faces of friends appear..
We are not different, We are the same Mind...
Every thought and imagination of a mystic has an effect.
When he thinks of something it may materialize the week after, or the next month, or perhaps after many years, but all that a mystic says or thinks is fulfilled sooner or later.
From The Teachings Of
HAZRAT INAYAT KHAN
Selected & Arranged BY
HAZRAT PIR VILAYAT INAYAT NKHAN
After awakening to the SELF in a manner that is deep and abiding and has integrated itself back into ordinary life, we see from the ONE and I do see from that...but it includes every form.
It excludes absolutely nothing.
That is part and parcel of "seeing from the ONE".
Reality is then not abstractly divided up between the formless and the forms....
The forms and the formless are ONE.
Life is ONE....NOT two...ALL is GOD, indivisible.
ONE without a second.
I have been accused of not being 'saved'..
Saved from what?..
From an imaginary hell of egoic desires?..
If God is Everything, why do you desire for separation?..
There is no other personality to be saved..
There is only an illusion of separation that has been taught that it must be saved..
You have a short time to awaken to Reality..
Use it wisely..
