Metaphysics of Perfume and Fragrance

Photo: Ashes and Snow by Gregory Colbert

The Master of mystics, may divine breeze cool his noble soul, loved perfume or beautiful fragrance. Mystics know that among various matter in the world of phenomena, perfume represents essence, points to the Essence of all there is, was or will be.

Fragrance of flower and God has something similar, metaphorically speaking. They are so intimate and subtle that you can never put a finger on where its coming from. Can a rose say 'this fragrance is here in this, but not in that petal'?

You ask, "God where are you?"

Listen to what He says. Lets listen carefully my friend and with all our heart, cause our ear has too much wax to hear this and our mind has too much garbage to pay attention to it. Only heart has the fine tuned reception for it.

This is what the Beloved whispers to you, us and all.




So next time you put on a beautiful fragrance, think of the Soul of all soul, The Beloved... May be we can make it an excuse to remember Him, Who is with you wheresoever you may be.

Just like that fragrance now so intimate with you, God, yours truly God, is even more intimate to you, us and all.

And our soul so desperately need to know, behold and remember this sacred knowledge, more than any other newspaper headline, facebook status or breaking news on tv. It has cure even for the most crazy insomnia you may have, that chronic depression or any impossible to diagnose disease with a funny name you can think of.

Allahu al-Lateef.

Allahu al-Qareeb.

Allahu Akbar.


The Beloved is the Most Subtle.

The Most Intimately Near, Entangled with our entire existence,
Entangled beyond our wildest imagination.

Exalted Ever and Forever.
