Who is at my door?

 

He said, "Who is at my door?"
I said, "Your humble servant."
He said, "What business do you have?"
I said, "To greet you, 0 Lord."


He said, "How long will you journey on?"
I said, "Until you stop me."
He said, "How long will you boil in the fire?"
I said, "Until I am pure.


"This is my oath of love.
For the sake of love
I gave up wealth and position."


He said, "You have pleaded your case
but you have no witness."
I said, "My tears are my witness;
the pallor of my face is my proof.'
He said, "Your witness has no credibility;
your eyes are too wet to see."
I said, "By the splendor of your justice
my eyes are clear and faultless."


He said, "What do you seek?"
I said, "To have you as my constant friend."
He said, "What do you want from me?"
I said, "Your abundant grace."


He said, "Who was your companion on the 'ourney?
I said, "The thought of you, 0 King."
He said, "What called you here?"
I said, "The fragrance of your wine."


He said, "What brings you the most fulfillment?"
I said, "The company of the Emperor."
He said, "What do you find there?"
I said, "A hundred miracles."
He said, "Why is the palace deserted?"
I said, "They all fear the thief."
He said, "Who is the thief?"
I said, "The one who keeps me from -you. 


He said, "Where is there safety?"
I said, "In service and renunciation."
He said, "What is there to renounce?"
I said, "The hope of salvation."


He said, "Where is there calamity?"
I said, "In the presence of your love."
He said, "How do you benefit from this life?"
I said, "By keeping true to myself


Now it is time for silence.
If I told you about His true essence
You would fly from your self and be gone,
and neither door nor roof could hold you back!


Rumi - In the Arms of the Beloved, Jonathan Star
Jeremy P. Tarcher/Putnam, New York 1997

"The preacher is pious only because he's terrified of hell, Lord. Whereas me, I sinned freely, trusting in your mercy"

Has God got himself lost that you go searching for him everywhere?

Trust me, the angels will ask the pious on judgement day: "Why didn’t you sin? Didn’t you trust in God’s mercy?

" I met my beloved in a dream And locked my arms around his neck. Now I don't dare open my eyes For fear we'll be separated again"

I gave my heart; that was the height of love. I put my life in her hands; that was the height of trust. I died, but my eyes refused to close. That was the height of waiting

 "When the Beloved serves you a drink with their own hands Alcohol it no longer remains Haram "

"Even if he sends me to hell, I will still be grateful,
Since we punish only those who we count as our own"

"You showed your beauty to the whole world. 
When it was my turn, you let the curtain fall.
It was my misfortune, that I could not reach this rest.
I could only reach her door, I could not reach her heart."

mayday mayday I'm falling

each day I wake up earlier,

just to fall,

going nowhere,

falling in love

just sitting here, I am flying through space

falling

    • IF SILENCE IS GOLDEN, INNER SILENCE IS PRICELESS
      Reaching home after a long day’s work, do you request children and others to leave you with a few minutes of silence? Or when there is an argument or when we are in a noisy place, do you wish for moments of silence?  But even when we sit in silence, does the mind often make ‘noise’ by way of thoughts of the whole day - of worry, judgment, fear, pain or anger? It is very rare that it creates pleasant and peaceful thoughts that relaxes us. In those moments we realize that staying quiet is not the solution. The solution is to make our mind silent. We play our roles in this physical world through the medium of communication. But our original state is one of inner silence. Life feels pleasant when the mind learns to think slow and right. A silent mind creates fewer and purer thoughts so we experience contentment and peace.  Our original home is the Soul World (called Param Dham or Incorporeal world). In this world, we do not have bodies and we don’t even have thoughts. We are tiny sparkling point of light or energy. We live there quietly in the presence of God as peaceful souls. Even today find inner and outer silence very soothing because it connects us at a deeper level to our original form. As we the soul comes down into the physical world and take a body to play different roles, we come into action and interaction. Over thousands of years the mind gets fed with information, beliefs and experiences. It creates thoughts while we are awake … even when asleep. When thoughts clutter the mind, we find it harder to silence it although that is when we long to emerge our power of silence.   Unkown author

    • How so? Theyre currently in US custody. But are European citizens. US will obviously not take them back. Options are release them, let them sneak into Europe. Or, shoot them before leaving. 
    • Guru can definetely make us change our opinion,  and destination, if only, we turn out from manmukhs  and become Gur-sikhs. So the key for that desired transformation within us, is only, when one gives oneself  totally to Him. And giving oneself to Him totally is understanding what Guru Jee tells us through the  Bani, and  to follow it implicitly. That´s it. Then work diligently and honestly on it. So what is that to be done? Gurbani says: Ik Oankar Satnam, Satgur parsad Jap.  There is only one True Lord Satnam/Wahiguru/Akal Purukh, who is realized by His grace when we do His simran/jap. Prabh ka simram sabse oochaa Prabh ka simran man kee mael jaae. Prabh ka simran, garb na vaseh. The whole of Gurbani is nothing, but mahima of  One wahiguru Akal Purukh and His true bhakti. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
