CHAPTER TWENTY ONE Posted on November 4, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Murshid’s Book For the last two or three years of his life, Murch Khabir was fantasizing about writing a book. He wanted to make it autobiographical with an emphasis on sharing how individual paintings came to be in their present form. He wanted to share his inner process of creating. I was blessed to watch Khabir painting on many occasions. I was especially impressed when he would grab his extra fine camel-hair brush and begin... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER NINETEEN Posted on October 9, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Sense of Humor Murshid Don Khabir Kitz has a sweet sense of humor. His laugh was deep and full. It was infectious, filling all around with delight. Khabir loved to watch British sitcoms. Often, I would be in my room upstairs when the silence would be shattered by a raucous belly laugh from Khabir who was watching his favorite British sitcom. Khabir loved a good pun. so he looked forward to spending time with his protegee, Talat, whose... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER EIGHTEEN Posted on October 9, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Darshan with the Murshid A central method of teaching on our Sufi path is the private meeting with the teacher. Often the meeting begins with ‘darshan’, a practice of wordlessly sharing the glance between teacher and student. Then, traditionally, the student shares their experience with the practices andtheir life in general. The teacher then offers counsel and often a practice or two. My meetings with the Murshid most often took an... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN Posted on January 8, 2020 by shamsuddin001 Drugs Managed

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN Posted on January 8, 2020 by shamsuddin001 Drugs Managed Don Kitz was a party person in his twenties. He gave up most drugs when he became a Sufi initiate. I do not have the full story on that early period after initiation. I do recall Khabir’s story of how he began the path that would lead him to service as a Sufi Murshid in the Ruhaniat International. He was living in Texas. He took a lady of interest to a performance of dervishes from Turkey doing the turn. Before the... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER SIXTEEN Posted on October 8, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Mystic Guide As a young adult, Khabir had an experience with LSD that changed his life. He talked about that experience on many occasions. He was a full-time tobacco smoker in those days While tripping, he looked up and the sun shone through a break in the clouds. He felt as if he had been touched by heaven. At one point, Khabir had a vision of the inside of his lungs. He vowed in that moment to be a non-smoker. It was that experience... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER FIFTEEN Posted on November 3, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Khabir, Lutheran Pastor Not many know that Don Kitz began Lutheran Seminary. He was headed toward the Lutheran ministry. Khabir told me.why he dropped out of seminary, but I cannot remember what he said. Whatever his reasons, the point I would make.is this: One must see the Lutheran minister in him, to really understand Khabir. I know he saw his Heartsong community as his parish. We, his mureeds, we’re his flock. He loved each one he... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER FOURTEEN Posted on October 7, 2019 by shamsuddin001 The Art Profess

CHAPTER FOURTEEN Posted on October 7, 2019 by shamsuddin001 The Art Professor Don Kitz, the art professor was a Sufi in disguise. He was a good teacher, solid, caring. I think his favorite classes were the labs where students worked on their projects. He would sit in his office wait for questions or he would stroll through the studio watching them work. He loved to work with students one on one and he was very good at it. When I would visit him at the college, I could never get used to seeing... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER THIRTEEN Posted on October 7, 2019 by shamsuddin001 Miracles and Serendipities THE LOST ZIKR Things happened around the Murshid at which reason marvels. As he got older Khabir became more forgetful. He would often misplace his keys or wallet. When that happened, Khabir did the Lost Zikr practice that he discovered in one of the esoteric papers of Hazrat Inayat Khan. Inevitably, the lost item was found shortly after the practice was complete. Many of you have heard him teach the Lost Zikr... Sign in to see full entry.

CHAPTER TWELVE Posted on October 7, 2019 by shamsuddin001 The Murshid Practices What He Preaches Murshid Khabir practiced his Sufism in his daily life. I was with him during two traffic stops for speeding. In both cases he was treated with the utmost respect and given warnings. I remember asking him once how he handled situations like that. He talked not about his thoughts or actions, but rather, his breath. In one case, I saw him shift his focus inward as he did earth breath slowly and... Sign in to see full entry.
