On Casual Terms with Bruce Lee
What can I say to the great man who was my childhood hero?
I say ‘Os, master and beloved teacher…you were true, so I remained true.’ I would say it with the hint of a knowing, slightly foolish blush…
You pointed at the truth and the importance of excellence and high quality during my formative years, and tuned my psyche for the reception that was to come…
Let the music tell you how. Listen and read on
The tuning was done. I had to take it from there.
How and why did I figure out (with absolute certainty) that Bruce Lee was a physical demonstration of how to deal with matters of the metaphysical world?
I looked for and found the mind behind the movie-star.
With all due respect to his family, sure, I spent time ogling his spectacular sexy body and dashing good looks…
He certainly attracted me with both eyes… and a wink…
I liked the eye he winked.
It alluringly said, ‘Follow me into the dark alley. I’ll show you mine, if you’ll show me yours.’
He drew sensuously and then slapped the truth into you, mercifully, mercilessly.
You are the last dragon.
The truth never fails to look conspicuously ridiculous wrapped. Like covering poo with a hat…
For as long as I remember, I was acutely conscience and mesmerized by the metaphysical realm within me. I speedily learnt where fairytales ended and reality began. That’s where I lived during my childhood. That’s where I live today. There were no children in the neighbourhood to play with. Those at school were at best, boring.
I was Alice in Wonderland…
I began pondering the difference between aloneness and loneliness when I became aware of the metaphysical world.
Through this world Allah communicates with us via the medium of the angel Mulhim (ilham). Angels are made of Allah’s Light. It is also the same world of the Jinn. We become aware of our Shaitan Qarin Jinnee. It’s a terrifying world and yet, the most comforting. It’s indeed a magical world – you can actually change things at will – through the simple medium of decisive choice – like saying ‘be’ and it is…
A karate chop through bricks… the magic power of mind over matter.
It is a beautiful dimension in time where years of ailing heal within split seconds, and yet it still feels like you’ve been there for ages…
Learning the magic words is to learn how Allah programmed it.
Waving the wand is knowing why…
The metaphysical world also has a landscape – it is full of cemeteries of loved ones – fast asleep in their graves… Ghosts are not ghosts, but a ‘tangible,’ intangible reality of the metaphysical world…
Sometimes the inhabitants of the graves push their way through to the surface – gasping for air – make a loud statement and then vanish back into the physical world, leaving you to go – oops that must have hurt…
You view the whole scene with both eyes with sparkling clean vision.
Purity in the innocence of childhood…?
Walk stoned through the house of horror…
I loved school carnivals because of the house of horror stall.
As an adult, returning to the wonderful realm of the metaphysical world, to realize that the whole thing about life is death, isn’t easy. Preparing for the next stage – the grave. And most importantly, the consequent final stage – Judgement Day and finally the Bridge over Hellfire (Jahannam) leading to Paradise (Jannah)…
Jahannam is a carnivorous creature of Allah that consumes man and Jinn.
Is Fluffy, Allah’s watchdog?
I see the poetry: Jahannam is the smoldering moat beneath Paradise (Jannah)…
Allah is above all creation. Allah does not dwell within creation. Allah is self-sufficient. Jannah and Jahannam are creations wherein creation must eternally reside in another dimension of space and time.
Allah is beyond creature comprehension – simply because only Allah is not created.
To those seeking comprehension of this, I say be realistic and know where to get off, lest you invite insanity, pondering what cannot be pondered. We do not possess the fundamental capacity to ponder it, because we don’t have the all important component of being not-created. You will never have that proof of evidence. Allah will reveal Himself to you, and yet remain forever veiled before mesmerized, swooning eyes…
Is Paradise really paradise and the Hellfire actually hell?
Is Hellfire the only answer to those who wanted Allah unveiled?
Is Paradise for those who are content with secondary evidence and therefore nearer to the Truth – Al-Haq – Allah?
Is it hell to know, or not know?
Is ignorance bliss?
I dive into deep, dark waters illuminated by the Light of Allah… But wait a minute… what’s talk about God doing in a Bruce Lee story…?
All point to the moon to view the heavenly glory, isn’t it?
What does it mean?
The lessons are varied and numerous. Take the metaphor in viewing the light of the sun through the moon (secondary evidence).
You can only view God through both eyes, and that too from behind a veil.
What is Islamic Spirituality (Ihsan)?
Islam is a religion (way) of pointing – of uniting and facing one direction and then pointing together at the declaration of the oneness of God…
It is to perceive Allah as if you see Allah, although you do not see Allah, with the knowledge that Allah sees you.
So rise up through excellence.
