-thoughtful words M.C.

A poet is someone

Who can pour Light into a spoon,

Then raise it

To nourish

Your beautiful parched, holy mouth.

Haji Bei Murat:
“Everything that the river of destiny brings to a Sufi is Sufi’s talk with God, Sufi’s learning from God! The Sufi gladly accepts everything sent by God!

“Sufi’s life is communication with Allah through everything that the Sufi receives from the Beloved. The Sufi receives everything as a gift! It is Sufi’s learning; it is Sufi’s bliss! It is Sufi’s song of thanksgiving, Sufi’s reply with love to the love of the Creator!

“Everything that comes out from the Sufi’s mouth is a hymn to the Eternity and Beauty of Allah! It is the fragrant nectar of love, which either accepts the form of words or music, or becomes silent lines and forms and leave guiding lights to those who walk the Path of Allah. And those walking can touch these lights and become burning with more love, gain power and confidence needed to overcome the difficulties of the Path.”
“How did You learn, who was Your Teacher?”

“Only Allah! I came to the last earthly life being open to perceiving His Love and Power directly! I did not need intermediates, which instruct people on religious dogmas and rituals. The Lord of everything was with Me: I saw His Presence in the manifest and in the non-manifest, in people that I met on the Path, in everything that His generous Hand gave Me! I did not divide these gifts into good and bad ones, because Allah does not give gifts which one should not receive!

“I thanked Him for every such a gift! Every meeting, every turn of My life, every day and every minute, every drink of water and every breath of air was His Gift! I thanked — and this conversation of Ours was beautiful! What can spoil your life with the Creator but your ingratitude for His Gifts?

“Every minute of your life is a message of God to you and your response to God. You can read every moment as you read the Quran! Because everything is the Book of Beingness, and He teaches you how to read it. When you have learned to read it, you will experience only the Bliss of His Love! And when you talk then — it will be your song of thanksgiving to the Creator!

“Songs of birds, fruits you partake, and every person you meet is a gift of Allah to you! This is an invaluable experience of the soul! This is your talk with the Creator!

“It is in this way that I lived: I looked and listened to Life! And I got filled with the Bliss of His Presence — independent of whether sweet or bitter was the fruit I partook of.

“As a result I learned to hear the rhythm and melody of Allah and to talk to other souls in the Allah’s language. Allah gave Me this mastery, and it allowed Me to begin teaching people whom He brought to Me…”
