I’m coming out…

You’ll notice not much is happening here in this blog after a good year of frequent posting. Well, during Ramadan, it was as if I was on a ship that was suddenly in the midst of a spiritual storm and things went all topsy turvy.  Yet it was in a good way, not a bad way at all.

Stay tuned…

Islam and the Divine Feminine: A Brief Look

There is no God but God and Goddess is the Face of God….

Goddess of 10,000 Names

On Resurrection Day, the sun and moon are released from service:
and the eye beholds the Source of their radiance,
then it discerns the permanent possession from the loan,
and this passing caravan from the abiding home.
If for a while a wet nurse is needed,
Mother, return us to your breast.
I don’t want a nurse; my Mother is more fair.
I am like Moses whose nurse and Mother were the same. – See more at: http://www.adishakti.org/_/centrality_of_the_divine_feminine_in_sufism.htm#sthash.eB3aFCcU.dpuf

Heaven and Hell

Darvish

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

It is more important to find out the truth about one’s self than to find out the truth of Heaven and Hell. – Hazrat Inayat Khan

What are Heaven and Hell? They are the results of action, speech and thought — they are *results* and not self-dependent. Every Hell and Heaven may be different, and the same condition can be Hell to one and Heaven to another.

Majestic Islam

The Divine Feminine – The Divine Mother

The Most Beautiful Experience Is The Mysterious

She is the holiest and most secret inwardness of Allah

“The Divine Feminine has always been present in Islam. This may be surprising to many people who see Islam as a patriarchal religion. Maybe the reason for this misconception is the very nature of the feminine in Islam. The Divine Feminine in Islam manifests metaphysically and in the inner expression of the religion. The Divine Feminine is not so much a secret within Islam as She is the compassionate Heart of Islam that enables us to know Divinity. Her centrality demonstrates her necessary and life-giving role in Islam. Sufism, or as some would define it “mystical Islam” has always honored the Divine Feminine. Of course, Allah has both masculine and feminine qualities, but to the Sufi, Allah has always been the Beloved and the Sufi has always been the Lover. The Qur’an, referring to the final Day, perhaps divulges a…
