Sayings of Zulaikha from the Deevan
Tablets of Love
Hearts and minds open up when words encapsulated in tablets of love touch the soul, a healing effect (Zulaikha)
Love came to your feet in the guise of a mortal. The message she brought was a heavenly love letter drenched in wine. In false pride, you claimed piety and rejected her message. My foolish sweetheart, Love came as a teacher unto you! You decided to build an iron wall around your heart and proclaimed, ‘No need have I for mortal love, I only seek Divine!” As loved turned its back on you, her parting words, ‘Did you think you could reach Divine without Me? By heavens, no! Not even in a million years! Rather, if you choose me as your path, I’ll take you to your destination. All you have to do is embrace and reciprocate.”
Inevitable it is to fall in love with that mortal who appears to us as “The Mirror”
With every heartbreak, the RUMI within you is reborn.
In our soul family, a sub category exists; members who swore an Oath of Loyalty to which the heavens were made a witness. On earth the latter remained loyal to the core unlike the remaining members of their soul family.
Those trained on the Owaisi Method of Transmission telepathic heart to heart communication) are very in tune to inspirational feelings, thoughts and frequencies. The latter method trains the seeker to clearly differentiate between emotional and spiritual, between mind and heart. A palate for Transcendental Haqiqah (truths) rejecting everyday logic and dogma; embracing Love as Supreme.
For the Wayfarer on the Path of Love, reciprocity without reservation becomes second nature and competition becomes extinct.One who is trained on reciprocity learns to give wholeheartedly and reaches her destination.
Oh Master of the Hearts, we have come to thee to be free of spiritual sickness. What is your method of cleansing?
We inject a dis ease called love and though it, you shall become mad. This state of insanity will be your cure.
Zulaikha’s Sensei said: ” Drink till you’re drunk and persevere in drinking till you become the drink!”
Our Way is through heart to heart connection, transcending all physicality.
One Loyalist is better than a million friends
Loyalty is a trait which is rarely understood in this abode but will be known at the Pool of Kawther
Blame not thee, I blame Me. For the Me in We is the greatest tragedy! To reach a state of We, the I must flee, if not face utter insanity!
Foolish was I with bad manners, for it created a veil between We.
Beware of befriending a Poet, for they speak in metaphors but percieved literally. Their words intoxicating and company highly addictive.
In silence and stillness, wisdom is birthed
Rabitah; connection, and Inner Transformation
The principal and practice of Rabitah is essential for the Way. The essence of rabitah; connection to one’s spiritual mentor, is love. The spiritual reality of the r Mentor through Rabitah trains and transforms the seeker until he is taken to a higher station. Heart connection superscedes physical proximity provided the heart remains constant in this state as spiritual outpourings are dependent upon the strength of the connection.
A seeker asked her mentor, “Tell me a secret of The Sacred Path.” If you wish to reach the finish line, remain loyal to your spiritual source, for the one who swerves from loyalty never ever reaches his destination
Loyalty to the river is loyalty to the Ocean!
Owaisi Telepathy Series:
To acquire knowledge of a spiritual secret(sirr) does not equate to recieving the Secret. The sacred act of transferring sirr from keeper to receiver cannot be acquired through the language of books.
Had the masses known the difference between scholars and Gnostics, spirituality would prevail…
The Blind Physician and his Patient
A visually impaired man unceasingly argued that the Moon was the Sun and vice versa. His field test results were otherwise 20/20. Confusion led to further investigation. It was discovered that the field test operator was organically blind himself.
A devotee was asked, “What is a ‘master’ without a master?”
He answered, “A beautiful mirage where neither water exists nor thirst quenched.”
For Rumi too has advised us, “Whoever travels without a guide needs two hundred years for a two-day journey.”
Those of us ruled by the Enormous Ego were unable to accept a Master of the Heart as a Guide.
The hungry ego allowed not the process of fusion to collaborate with likes, as ‘sole recognition’ was the intended goal.
Once the Attunements were complete and the mind and heart prepared, the Master Guide appeared.
The greatest teachers came without notice. Taught without books the greatest lessons. Love was their language, grace was their method of delivery and they left without notice. They remain in our hearts, separate not from our being, and have promised to meet once again in the garden of eternal unity.
Humility brought the seeker to an oasis but pride restricted him from quenching his thirst, as the act of bending down to sip from the source was below his dignity.
A seeker requested her mentor a dose of ancient wisdom and received the following advice:
“In this Sacred Path, we must remember to be grateful and NEVER spit in the same water which quenches our thirst.
The art of receiving defies logic when experience is spiritual. However, when logic rules over heart, we turn towards skepticism and shy away from the act of receiving; closing the door on what we ourselves attracted in the first place.
The Wise One said,” Do not be disloyal to the one(s) your soul is loyal to…”
Through this non physical, heart to heart connection, the souls promised to update each other.
“The ‘magical potion’ you seek is hidden in the give and take.”
The intellect asked the soul, , “Between us, who is more loyal?” The soul replied, ” Ive been loyal before you were brought into form. A ma
Some Masters teach through strict adherence to rules and regulation while others teach through the art of allowing; permitting the soul to learn through freedom. Our Way is the latter of the two. (QH)
The heart that is in a state of connection (rabitah), reflects the essence of all worship.
Just because we are not meeting, it doesn’t mean we do not meet.
Just because we observe silence, it doesn’t mean we hear not our voices.
Just because your face is hidden, it doesn’t mean it is veiled from my sight.
Just because our language is silence, it doesn’t mean we do not speak.
Just because we express not, it doesn’t mean we cannot feel emotion.
Through this non physical heart to heart connection, the souls promised to update each other.
I can feel the heart which bleeds, a gracious smile that conceals the pain and sincere eyes that tell a very long story. Speechless I am in total admiration, awe, and wonder; I too secretly shed tears of blood.
If you wish for the world to become beautiful
Be in love, stay in love
Everything becomes love thereafter!
Give your Hand
Until you’ve bowed your head and given your hand
you’ll speak only of the recipe
and never know the taste.
Breathe In Me
Oh spirit of my wine
Breathe into me
Breathe so I may inhale your spirit
I crave silence and only desire breath
All else diminshed
Your breath is the carrier
the essence of your spirit;
the wine for my soul.
“To channel one’s energy in the right palce at the right time to the right audience is an art and to diffuse it in all directions with no focus is absolutely foolish.”
Creativity is the proof of potential energy.
When you have reached the boiling point, a release takes effect.
The output of creativity has made you the Giver.
When love halts, fails to give back, then it is time to move on. You claim to have invested in a love that shattered your heart? Know my friend; this is The Path of Love. Through weaning you shall be set aright, enjoy your state of mourning and be ready to love again.
The wise one said, “Take my hand, and bow your head, discard your books and your intellect. You shall be taught from heart to heart and taste what books shall bring you not.”
Empty your cups with the pulluted drink before you ask for wine!
Fana is the accelerated way for the traveler on the path towards Divine.
Once you’ve found your Shems
know that you’re in love.
The proof this love is real;
Your Soul will fly
Only a Shems can do this!
The price of love is high
Higher for the Aashiq
Fatal for the fool!
Forced Khula is the Shah of all heart breaks.
“In the Game of Hearts, the one who possesses the highest love energy WINS!
Everything I recieved was through the grace of Gaze!
Hours of Love
The most intimate time for lovers to pour their hearts out is undoubtedly the late and early hours of the day. The night sky and early dawn showers upon the lovers what daylight begets not. When one becomes the beloved, she too will keep vigil and arise early only to be in solitude with her Beloved. Fall in love to know and experience such states..only then we shall comprehend and taste Divine Love.
When I see you, it is only your soul I percieve, hear and feel. Your physical has become oblivious to me. Our souls are friends; we’ve known eachother from time eternity.
Are we not all in search for a sincere friend? The loyalist who has no ulterior motive and lacks the selfishness that most people carry. If even one is found, then it is better than the whole world. Yet, I am saddened to face utter dismay that I too have given up, for each time I gave my heart, it was shattered beyond belief. I travel alone upon this path as I had first started. Let the pure spirits accompany me if they wish, yet I wish not to know who they are!
Invest not your love in illusion, rather the Light that shines through your target. This love will remain eternally when the target vanishes.
Invitation from the Beloved
One asked, ‘Must I be eager like Moses or await like Mohammed?”
If you attempt without invitation you shall not be given sight and return dismayed
Await like Habib to receive invitation, your Beloved will arrange for you a most beautiful journey and you shall be greeted and treated as the most honored guest!
Do we blame Zulaikha? Never!
Ayyub’s yearning and sorrow, we share
Owais’ love, an enviable station
Rumi’s pain for Shems, my heart beats the same drum..
I turned away for only a moment. Now you’ve turned your face and heart from me! Minutes feel like months and days feel like years! Take me back in my initial state , for I cannot bear this separation any longer!
Law of Vision
The journey alighted with the initial gaze, then your name transfixed upon my heart, mesmerized by this presence until you came and sat by my feet. A usual occurrence for the people of gaze.
Love cannot be forced, it must flow naturally…
You can love but cannot make anyone love you…
Love is for all but Isqh is for the elite
Lovers sleep and arise in love. Love is their food and drink. Every breath is love. I swear by the Lord of Love, if this sustenance seazes for even a moment I shall die instantly!
Malaish to our brothers and sisters in Egypt. We’ve been hijacked by an indescribable ugliness called intolerance.
The Difference between the Master Key and a Duplicate
And so the seeker asked about the key. He was told, “The Master Key is in possession with the Real Master. All you have, if anything, is a duplicate with limited usage.” In haste, the student attempted to open all doors and gates, forgetting the source-only to realize he reached door one. Halted in his path, a sign read, “No trespassers.” In humility, he returned back to the source; his Master. The key was returned to its original owner, and the student was made to relearn the lessons of love through silence, gaze and servitude.
Meditation: Let not your meditation and personal worship be a means to depress yourself and others around you. Aim for awareness, inner serenity and greater connection. Ecstatic worship resonates peace and lifts up others.
Advance to you next station through total fana in your present station!
“Presence can come in any shape or form..it has a language of it’s own and can be understood through the knowledge of the heart”
The one who has the ability to activate one or more chakras is undoubtedly a person of presence.
You claim love through expression…prove it through you actions. It is blasphemy until you present us proof!
I was ordered to give away my most treasured books. I am taught directly from the author’s heart!
Rumi became ‘Rumi’ after Shems left him
Yet this event transformed him into Shems
And he is a Shems for million of souls
Oh Rumi, My master
Fill our cup with your love!
‘Seekers of Truth’ naturally incline beyond the dogmas of sectarianism; enter into the realm of Unity where labels exist not. Where love prevails as the Only Way to Enlightenment.
Seeking Shems Tabrez
There may be many soul mates along the Path, yet ultimately there is only one real Shems.
Zulaikha says, “The worst punishment on earth is to be forcefully separated from those you truly love.”
In every spiritual relationship there is a Shems and Rumi. Roles are exchanged periodically..in reality both are ONE.
Some drink to get drunk
Others drink to become sober
Both are equally a must for the drunkard.
Being in the physical presence of the Masters of Grace is not our goal. Rather, we desire to be accepted into their spiritual radar. Through distance means we are taught from heart to heart with no physical prerequisites. However, we deny NOT the physical means/link of the transfer of Grace. The sincere seeker recieves an unlimited supply of grace as opposed to the one who rejoices on ‘association by physical means’ devoid of sincerity.
Your expedition requires a cable car to reach the summit. Our Journey requires a local guide!
Once you arrive, be prepared for the supreme fall; as you lack experience.
In this path The Summit is the station for the wayfarer with the guide.
To become love; either become the sweet fruit or the fruit fly.
The ardent lover exclaimed, “A loyal dog is easier to shoo away than a loyally bred mortal.
The BIGGEST compliment I’ve received in my life ( that too from someone very special): “You are crazy”
The Egoist is he who learns a drop from the Ocean of Eternity and concludes to be equal to his mentors.
The first lesson for mankind is Isqh. The new born through love becomes an aashiq of his mother.
Oh Friends of the Way!
For every meeting we had with you, there was only one purpose; gaze.
To exchange glances..this was the REAL begining of our friendship.”
We met, you gave, I received. I gave, you received. Grace showered us unveiling our true self through reflection. We depart and are never to meet again.
Do you mourn out of sympathy,
anxiety of separation?
Whatever your case, rejoice.
For the one whose heart knows not to mourn, has no heart!
Living under an oppressor is worse than being mutilated. How can daily torture compare to a one time kill?
The People of Doubt are the cause of their own misery. When light comes to greet their soul, they opt to shield the same with the shield of skepticism.
The real drunk is drunk always. When his drunkenness comes to a peak..he must drink again in front of all to cover up his real state. A blame game perhaps.
The Wonder of Love
I wonder in wonderment why mortals reject love from light. Deep down you and I feel and know that love. Choosing not to reciprocate is your loss, I shall move on in the path of love towards my destination.
A great Zen Master asked his disciple, “What’s sweeter than honey, deeper than the ocean, holds more substance than books and feeds you constant wisdom?” Pondering in silence, the latter replied, “Surely, none other than you my Master!”
Spiritual Planet 101:
The traveller needs 2 essentials always: A guide and a travel companion. Food, lodging and medical needs are taken care of.
When Love met Rebellion she said, “I learnt obedience through love, while the latter said, “And I rebelled through force.” Love replied, “Come with me, we’ll start all over again.”
Wine for Every Occasion
With every sorrow and every kushi I drink wine. Upon awakening and before retiring. It has become my means to survive in this world of temporal separation. Only when we unite I shall do away with the bottle.
Some say, “You’ll die if you drink too much. We say, “We’ll die if we don’t drink.”
Your silence is left me in suspense, it’s killing my heart. Oh Mysterious one, RESPOND!
“Your soul and I are friends, we go back eons, yet your mind chooses to reject this bond. Does your choice make a difference? No, we were and always are in touch soul to soul.”
We found Love to be the mother of all cures.
We express love for the means to attain the Beloved.
The DMT effect you seek can be transferred 24-7 through the gaze of a living Spritiual Master drunk in Divine Love.
We read a million books on self development yet found the embodiment of perfection in a living Master, not books!
The process of external cleansing is just as vital to inner cleansing. Do not loose focus on esthetics…both go hand in hand.
You say, ‘Allah graced me.’ We say, ‘Through His friends, we recieve grace!’
To receive, we must be ready to give. The process of exchange is a prerequisite and applicable on all levels of life. Nothing comes without exertion and only then we receive. Nothing comes just through prayers. The sincere and honest effort must be made and utmost respect and value for knowledge and the bearers of knowledge must be in our hearts so that we receive in abundance.
To err is human. To forgive is Divine and to hold grudges is self destructive.
Is there any match of eloquency after the demise of Imam Ali? Sayeda Zaianb and Zainul abideen were the flag bearers of the same. It seems that all those graced with eloquence received from them who in actuality received from Aba Zahra (saw).
Say not the ‘sinners’ are the most diseased of men. Rather those who shun love are inflicted with the deadliest of all diseases.
A seeker asked her mentor, “What is the ultimate secret of the healer who heals? Unconditional love was the reply.
And it was asked by a seeker:
From my many soul mates, how may I decipher which one(s) are closer than the others. The voice which resonates most with your being is the signal…your cells within must feel the vibrational effect through the voice.
Jealousy is a spiritual retardant and is the hallmark of fraudulent artisans.
Remembrance is a mark of love and to forget is a sign of indifference. Hence, we remember Hussain not to lament but out of sheer love!
We found those who were sad to be deficient in two quantities:
Wine and love
To recognize and love all those who perfumed us on our sacred journey is a great secret mystics have been practicing. To show indifference, animosity and prune these flowers after receiving scent from their perfumery is a great delusion for those who claim Tauheed (Belief in Oneness). Grace is an inevitable factor for receiving and recognizing the medium of grace requires true humility and genuine love.
‘The seeker was actually a teacher in disguise. It would be sheer arrogance to say, “verily I am your teacher.’
In deed to the onlooker, teacher idolization is perceived. Yet many a time the student is simply overtaken with awe and admiration of her Mentor where love become the rule of the day. It is said that annihilation in love brings the adherent to the ‘next station’ of the Path and closer to the ultimate goal; Divine Love.
Upon being forced to discard the mind, the seeker was granted the ability to perceive with soul and think with the heart. Thereupon every organ and faculty was transformed into heart and the entire being became Love.
In this Deevan of ours, it is forbidden to break hearts!
We consider veneration of ‘enlightened ones’ as equivalent to praising the Almighty. The justification for this mode of glorification is akin to praising His Light which emanates through His very own subjects.
With every heart break, we had no choice but to keep loving with more intensity. Hate is non existent in the Path of Love.
Glory be to Maryam (Mary) mother of Prophet Jesus. Peace be upon the day of his birth and the day he will return (peace be upon them).
The forced full induction in the Path of Love has made hate non existent!
All faculties except the heart consulted with one another. It was unanimously decided that the Ego was the most revered and precious to “I”.
Hence, to live life without a Sensei was most suitable to this soul-type.
Four students arrived at the threshold of a Spiritual Master and upon being asked,’ What has brought you here today?’
The first said: “To solve my problems”
The second said: “To increase my influence over the masses”
The third responded: “To attain blessings and be cleansed”
The fourth said: “Love for you and service to the Way”
The Master gazed upon all four seekers and uttered: “All shall be granted according to their intention, but the one who shall remain on this journey and reach his destination is he who comes out of love and and service to the Way. Love without utilizing our gifts is only lip service.
