Divine Hint is an Order

Catching the Thread, Book Cover Illustration1.
The Sufi master, Bhai Sahib, stresses how one should never judge by appearances:

Saints are like rivers; they flow where they are directed... If a Hint is there, I have to do it, and if I don’t, I am MADE to do it. Divine Hint is an Order. Sometimes the Saints have to do things the people will misjudge, and which from the worldly point of view could be condemned, because the world judges by appearances.

One important quality required on the Path is never to judge by appearances. More often than not things look different from what they really are. There is no good or evil for the Creator. Only human society makes it so. A Saint is beyond good or evil, but Saints are people of the highest morality and will never give a bad example.

- from Catching the Thread: Sufism, Dreamwork and Jungian Psychology by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Irina Tweede

The Divine hint is “quicker than lightning” and if we interfere, through any judgment or censorship, the hint is lost. If we respond, “What if . . . ,” or “But . . . ,” or “I am not sure . . . ,” or with any of the mind’s conditioned responses, then the hint is lost, the opportunity gone. A Divine hint requires that we listen and act accordingly. Nor will a Divine hint always be about an action. Sometimes it is something we need to know, a quality we need to develop, an attitude we need to change. What matters is that we are always attentive and respond in the moment. We do not weigh up the consequences or consider our actions. We listen and act. But in order to listen and respond unconditionally, the mind has to become free of many patterns of conditioning. We have to leave behind our normal desire to understand, to know what we are doing.

- Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Sufi Dreamwork

Wa qalu: "samiAAna, wa ataAAna
Ghufranaka Rabbana,
wa ilayka-l maseer."
- The Quran 2:285

And they say: "We listen, and we obey:
Your forgiveness
(we seek), our Lord,
and to You is the end of all journeys."
