Breath Breath, most taken for granted; most universal gift of life in every form. All life breathes: The animals, the plants, even the rocks breathe. A cave that cannot breathe, dies. Oh fellow traveler on this journey from birth to death and beyond, The Friend entreats us: “Attend to your breath. Give it some of your precious attention.” It may turn out to be the hidden, royal key to life's deepest secrets. ©2011, Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

You asked me to stay away for awhile. Heart-hurt, I left resolving not to return until asked. I shall make the best of your needs. Yet, I will not accept this false separateness in this, my unified heart. Hu knows just how and when you will discover the beauty and renewal that comes because, in truth, we are one.

When Things Go Wrong

When Things Go Wrong When things go wrong, do you look for blame? Is the finger pointed out or in? When it just doesn't feel right, do you panic and run away? Or Are you ready to surrender, knowing that you are not in charge? The say 'all things work for good for those who know God.' Can you belive it? Can you concieve it? Does it matter at all? Life is a chess game; We go where we are placed for the highest good of all. So smile inside when things 'go wrong'. It is all unfolding as it should.... Sign in to see full entry.

Sacred Time

Sacred Time There are pregnant moments beginning each day in open-hearted listening to that still, small voice that speaks from deep within. In these silent, peace filled moments, we open to the Truth of who and what we are. The Spirit of Guidance speaks Life to our waiting Hearts. Now, armed with knowing, we begin a brand new day!

Silence In Silence we can know the peace; the joy of Love. In the 'knowing' We become more of who we truly are. When we are who we are, Life unfolds in awesome order, and 'all things work for good.' Shams sings a new song. C. 2012 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

I sit in pondering I wonder: should I have been stronger?, pushed harder? would it have been better to surrender to your emotional Vesuvius? accept what is? Move away from the fires sooner? Often, I think that is it!: Once having unintentionally, exposed my insanity as the weakness it is, I should have surrendered completely to our feelings of shame; and so, turned and run into hiding from blame. Oh estaughforallah, estaforallah*, take this small self to an early grave the resurrected Self knows... Sign in to see full entry.

From This Silent Love

From This Silent Love From the center of this silent love A wordless kiss is offered. Do not seek to understand With shallow words, When life's so grand. Lean close with open heart Receive this kiss Now, let us start a wordless conversation; a most profound discourse on love. This kiss is made to stop the talking. This kiss is what it is. This kiss is love collected for sharing lip to lip. © 2008 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

Before You Decide

We Are the 99%

We are the ones who are inheriting The Earth; simply because we care about Her. We are the ones whose neghborliness is kindness and giving generously. We are the Earth's majority, awakening to our Birthright. We are Us looking to increase our rank until we are the 100%. We are those who stand before Mystery with humble courage. We are creating the twenty-first century in the reflection of Love and Light. We will not be denied. © 2011, Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

Arrogant Self

Self-important, obstinate, swept away by the pride of wealth, they ostentatiously perform sacrifices without any regard for their purpose. Egotistical, violent, arrogant, lustful, angry, envious of everyone, they abuse my presence within their own bodies and in the bodies of others. -Bhagavad Gita 16:13 – 18 Arrogant Self I laugh in the face of Nafs'* insanity. The obstinate child screams its latest protest to what is. Shams has found the pearl of Compassionate Love. Patient Love heals all fear;... Sign in to see full entry.

I Stepped into the Night

I Stepped into the Night I stepped into the night much as I stepped into your life, years ago; in simple faith that it was good … Together, we created much holiness, some happiness, and a deep companionship. I stepped into the night; You were there/ here, with me. We spoke in silent paragraphs of love and dreams and plans and things....and it was good. Everything reminds me of you. The music; the smiles from friends and family; the quiet times, alone outside with a cigarette. All these call you... Sign in to see full entry.

Narrowness is not necessarily devotion, but often appears so.

Narrowness is not necessarily devotion, but often appears so. Bowl of Saki, November 19, by Hazrat Inayat Khan Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan: How can those claim to love the Creator who do not love what He has created? For God could never have become known had there been no manifestation. So he who does not find sufficient beauty to admire in His manifestation cannot pretend to love God. So, too, if someone limits his love to a single object, saying, 'I only love this and there is... Sign in to see full entry.

The Labyrinth There can come a moment where/when we decide to walk this labyrinth consciously with equanimity. We cannot know, much less control Life! We can, however, and thank god/dess, settle into our true spacious presence. We can be the deep peace which is pure power. We can know; we can live a peace beyond our power to comprehend or understand. Peace is power quietly expressed moment by moment, step by precious step in this labyrinth of life. © 2011 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

FORGIVE THE DREAM All your images of winter I see against your sky. I understand the wounds That have not healed in you. They exist Because God and love Have yet to become real enough To allow you to forgive The dream. You still listen to an old alley song That brings your body pain; Now chain your ears To His pacing drum and flute. Fix your eyes upon The magnificent arch of His brow That supports And allows this universe to expand. Your hands, feet, and heart are wise And want to know the... Sign in to see full entry.
