We are troubled by natural disasters and human cruelty and acutely aware of our physical and psychological frailty. We find it astonishing that we are here at all and want to know why.

    ““I think, therefore I am” very deeply and suddenly realized, in his own words, “The consciousness that says ‘I am’ is not the consciousness that thinks.” What did he mean by that? When you are aware that you are thinking, that awareness is not part of thinking. It is a different dimension of consciousness. And it is that awareness that says “I am.” If there were nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t even know you are thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know he is dreaming.”

    — A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

    ““No meditation without mediation. No self without the Zulf.””

    ‘Vision cannot attain Him’. We cannot ponder the imponderable. There must be an intermediate degree in which infinite and finite interact. In Islam that is primarily the Holy Qur’an. The zulf is the tresses of the divine Beloved. In Islamic poetry the tresses veil Her face, but cannot be condemned because they are of her. That is the nature of dunya. It veils God but is His creation and array of perfect signs. Without dunya, in which we exist, there can be no human selfhood, since human selfhood is neither part of matter, nor of the divine.

    I say it is a form of implicit shirk (idolatry) to say that I am going to bypass the tradition and go directly to the sources (Quran and Sunnah), because it is to set at ones own judgement as being superior to the judgement of all of those others, which is an absurdity – it is probably the greatest most pernicious error in the modern Ummah (Muslim community) to say: well a hundred thousand ulemah (scholars) might have come to this position, and I’m really not going to trouble myself to read all of the thousands of books through which this position was negotiated and arrived at.  I’m going to say I know better.  That really is a form of pharaonic arrogance. This is not a minor error… it’s a very fundamental error…the idea that our personal consciousnesses are so refined and pure that we can understand the scriptures better than earlier generations … it’s a form of backbiting … it’s probably the greatest act of collective backbiting in the history of the Ummah.

    “Some people get angry when they hear that problems are illusions.

    When you are full of problems, find the life underneath your life situation. Most people find it difficult to believe that a state of consciousness totally free of all negativity is possible.

    The collective disease of humanity is that people are so engrossed in what happens, so hypnotized by the world of fluctuating forms, so absorbed in the content of their lives, they have forgotten the essence, that which is beyond content, beyond form, beyond thought. 

    They are so consumed by time that they have forgotten eternity, which is their origin, their home, their destiny. Eternity is the living reality of who you are.”

    〜 Eckhart Tolle.’“
