In Another World …

On Casual Terms with Bruce Lee

3324428162_7e1ae4cbe32

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.

Fear

vsmpire

My fear is over.
It already happened.
Get over it.
Wake up.
Conquer the vampire within.

May Allah make it easy for all of us.

In addition to the poem Forbidden Fruit Punch, I drew a picture too yesterday:

When you untwist the tangled rope, you are left with just the rope.
You can use it to hang yourself, or escape.
The choice is always yours.

My Christian Brethren

3I Miss You

Take it intellectually… metaphorically… spiritually…

Watch, listen and be truthful.

I AM SALAHUDDIN:

The reunion between siblings – two brothers – Ismaeel (alaihissalam) and Ishaaq (alaihissalam) … through their progeny after hundreds of painful years apart… That’s the REAL MEANING of  the reunion between the Christians and Muslims… this has already begun taking place, alhamdulillah.

Listen:- Kansas – Hold On: 

Don’t know how? Listen:

https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10152860861745634

Read the Bible: http://www.ahlalhdeeth.com/vbe/showthread.php?t=3014

Bible

I understand your questions… and the fear and pain that must accompany it… I’ve been there – I KNOW how it feels… go ahead and ask those questions; but ask them from the ONLY ONE who can answer them –The Giver of Life and Death – God Almighty Allah –  Rabbul Aalamin, the Lord of all the Worlds.

Judas, when you ask the right questions from the wrong one:  

Read the Qur’aan:

Quran reading

“{And because of their saying: “We killed the Messiah, ‘Isa the son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah.” But they killed him not, nor did they crucify him, but it was made to appear to them so, and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no knowledge; they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely, they killed him not.}” [Qur’aan 4: 157]

He did not die: Just as Avatar Aang never died… yeah, behind every great man there is always a tainted; painted, great woman…

So, I say to you:

Handshake

“O People of the Book (Jews and Christians): Come to a word (in good terms) that is Just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah (God) (alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah (God). Then, if they turn away, say “(O People of the Book) bear witness that we are Muslims.” [Qur’aan3:64]

To my Sri Lankan brethren:  Let’s start the wave – start the ralle

Come on Sri Lanka!

WE can do it! 😀

Gil France’ comment provided the headline…

Yes, my name is Sona. Maha Sona (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Giant_Warriors).

I am no ordinary gonibillah (sack ghost), so ghost busters beware! (lol)

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Beware the firasa of the Mu’meen (believer).” (A terribly loose translation of firasa, for the benefit of non-Muslims, would be – ‘sixth sense’ or ‘third eye;’ perception of the ghaib – the unseen world – with Allah’s leave.)

Laa hawla wala quuwatta illah billah (there is no strength or might except from Allah Most High).   

‘To conquer death you only have to die…’ is a line from the song, Poor Jerusalem. Listen:

I have always loved Isa alaihissalaam (Jesus, peace be upon him). He also is my Prophet. I know his story not just from the Bible, but from the Qur’aan (http://www.islamicboard.com/comparative-religion/134284303-all-quranic-verses-about-jesus-pbuh.html) as well.

I kept my spiritual life private – because that is exactly how it should be.

However, circumstances are such; I now have to wear my heart on my sleeve. There are so many things that need to be said and so little time left…

To all my Christian brothers and sisters, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I never left Christianity. Nor did I abandon you. I just expanded my consciousness when I embraced Islam. This effectively made me embrace Judaism and Christianity and all the Abrahamic faiths, and all the Messengers and Prophets of (God) Allah.  It happens to be a requirement of the Six Pillars of Faith – Rukn al Iman (http://www.missionislam.com/knowledge/sixpillarsiman.htm ) of a Muslim (one who voluntarily submits to the will of Allah without rancour).

To all my Buddhist brothers and sisters, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I love the Gautama Buddha and his teachings and I endeavour to follow him as best I can. He too is mentioned in Islamic scripture. I have employed the tools of the Buddha’s philosophy to get to the font of truth and falsehood in my mind – and to understand Islam and the times we live in.

Indeed, I embraced Buddhism too.

I have drawn assistance and moulded myself from other philosophies too – too many to mention, but I cannot leave out Bruce Lee, so I say ‘Os’ to my Senseis; Nanda Siriwardene (Masutatsu Oyama Kyokushin-Kai) included. I am beltless, but that’s not the point. When credit is due, it must be given.

To all Jewish, Hindu and ‘other’ religious friends, who believe in The Creator, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I did not find anything to employ from Judaism, Hinduism or any ‘other’ religion, although I have perceived the clear thread of truth running through them.

In my humble view, the Buddha did an excellent job fixing Hinduism. Four-hundred thousand or so deities were reduced to ‘no deity’ needed to correct your life.

Way to go Siddhartha, O’ Gautama Buddha, is all I will say.

As for the rest – Atheist, Agnostic, and those who reject God, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

Don’t hate me and fault me if I have not employed your beliefs, values, methods, lifestyle, and so forth. It is not necessary to climb the mountain from every direction to perceive the view from the top. I found things that worked for me, as mentioned above.

I am just one human being with one life. I can only do so much. I cannot please everybody, and neither can you. Nor has it ever been my intention to do so, nor should it be anyone’s.

Almost 98% of you here on FB know me personally. You know I never gave a shit about popularity votes and the disgusting ‘what will people say’ lifestyle.

I am not a herd animal – never was and never will be.

To ALL of you:

Just accept me for who and what I am. I have accepted you with love.

If I err, and I surely do, please correct me with proofs and evidences that I may rectify and make amends and move on.

I am unorthodox, forthright to a fault, employ the use of profanity (bad language) under poet’s licence, and am short on diplomatic skills… among other things…

Like you, I am imperfect.

Humour is an aspect of my personality/character. Even in the darkest of times, I smile.

 30-years

30-years

That’s me.

Ana Asifa (please forgive me).

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them.” [Matthew 5:17]

All that is right and correct is by the mercy of Allah. All errors are mine. Astaefirullah (I seek Allah’s forgiveness).
