The Lotus in you | Guest entry by Blue Lotus

Greetings ... by the Graceful Beloved One!

Greetings of the month of the True Lover of overarching final testimony, Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him and his lovers)!

See a flower blossoming, we long to enjoy the full blown beauty. See the stars up in the sky and wish ourselves to fly high. Close our eyes, we long to feel at ease.

What if we shut ourselves from the world for a moment, take a momentary solitude and close our eyes?

We feel that we are still living. Heart is still pumping. Pulse is in rythme. Parts of our body exchanging flows. Cells in continuous process of renewing. Mind? Gathering memoirs, catching present and extending towards the outside realm. Uncountable, is the process within – forming, destroying, renewing, revitalizing, at peace or in pain.

At this moment of self invasion, we long to be in peace, still in ourselves. Who speaks to us now? Who brings the message of peace residing in your heart?

We realize that love and peace have suddenly merged as one. It is devoid of logic and beyond the realm of reasoning. Only one feeling remains.

Truth emerges within you.

Truth says – it is here, here and here deep in you.

Oh Lovers of peace! This is your Beloved pleading you to recognize and realize true love. Saying that you are capable of loving beyond what you see merely when your eyes are opened and are stuck on subject, people and events.

This is the true message brought by the group of wise before and now. Last testimony, the final revelation of Perfect Truth was fulfilled by Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The realization of True Beauty and Love made him – ‘blessings to the universe’. Perfection came by living love, for love and ‘of Love’.

Negation to associate the Highest Love and Utmost Beauty with limiting objects or materials or living beings defines the step to knowing. This is envisioning and acknowledging.

Living is the second step after learning to envision. Our walk starts here towards our inner realm where we and everything else seem to be breathing together. Now if we walk, our footsteps touch the earth, we leave marks at each moment. We look up and we see what the others see, from the ground or from the sky.

We are awakened to know the Glory.

Life  around us becomes so connected that we find ourselves entangled. We experience and we try to find ways to travel within. We hope and seem to fail. This is the third step. The curtains before you to increase your longing.

Stay put and realize – in continuum. A step four. Step into a life-long walkable path of truth. We wish to blend in, merge in, dive into the ocean of love and peace.

See for yourself and know that you are being sought by the Lover too!

May the Beloved grant us His True Love and Union!

A magnificent guidance for us to blossom as a lotus of nirvana is marked by the one, named as the pure gate of knowledge of the wisest creation, Ali ibn Abi Talib (may his face be illuminated best). He said:

Remember and forget not:

“Your sickness is from you – but you do not perceive it;
You remedy is within you – but you do not sense it;
You presume that you are a small entity – whereas within in you is enfolded the entire universe;
You are indeed the evident book, by whose alphabet the hidden becomes manifest;
Therefore you have no need to look beyond yourself; what you seek is within you, if only you reflect.”

This is where the lotus blooms.

The message of Boddhi Sattva speaks to your heart.

Allah Kareem. (The Generous One).
