Oh HOw I Love Thee

Oh How I Love Thee This Love is not normal. It is not my doing. I am still trying to understand how I love thee, and how I got here. Do you know? Can you say? Surely, this love will be my undoing. Have I not been seeking this all my life? I think I came here for this: To die by this kiss of love. Lean closer friend. Shams must whisper this secret before his demise. “All Is One.” Sign in to see full entry.

October 30, 2019 shamsuddin001 Intoxicated by the Presence of Spirit “Oh My Sweet Creator, You fill me with the wine of Your Essence.” A toast to this Love is in order. You could join me, if you choose. So tip the glass and sip this wine. Be careful! One drop can go to your heart. More than that, and you will be lost. Lean close and let me whisper in your ear, ” There is a guard at the door. He will not let us leave until we can remember our names.” Shams says, “Guess, we’re spending the night.” Sign in to see full entry.

October 29, 2019shamsuddin001 Initiation Fever

October 29, 2019 shamsuddin001 Initiation Fever I just remembered the fever that followed for days after my Sufi initiation. I remained in bed for a week. The most vivid visions of Yantras unfolded in my fevered dreams. I was given an understanding of the process of Creation. It was as clear as it was vivid, yet I cannot say in words, this knowing. I cannot even say how this vision changed my life. I am assured that it did. My question is this: “Why did this memory return now?” Is this even the... Sign in to see full entry.

What IS This Joyful Hunger?

What IS This Joyful Hunger? It grips me, if only for a moment, hardly long enough to discern. This is not a new feeling, but it returns so frequently now, that I recognize it in the past, where in the moment, I was youth-blind and thought it, something else. Anxiety, recognized as excitement, is healing. I quit trying to name this feeling. It is like a hollow hunger, Painful in the extreme, Yet, it feels damned good! It is, at once, exciting and profoundly peaceful. It is overwhelming sorrow –... Sign in to see full entry.

Simulacra Prayers

Simulacra Prayers Simulacra Prayers Oh you pious ones, You offer your rote simulacra prayers, written by theological experts, who no doubt loved their Lord. Their prayers we’re authentic when penned. Now they fall from your lips with lackluster intent on lackluster ears. Creator deserves more attention than that. Shams discovered a powerful practice. Next time you sit with loved ones for a meal, Stop for the briefest moment in silence Now let words rise in heartfelt gratitude For the meal... Sign in to see full entry.

What Is This Impatience

Skip to content The Words of a Sermon that No One Will Hear Sermons to Myself MENU October 25, 2019 SHAMSUDDIN001 What Is This Impatience? Yesterday, I was snappy all day long. lYes brief, butittle moments of impatience grew as the day wore on. an inner explosion of rage, when my expectation was crossed, brief as it was intense. Brief, and still … That rage burst forth, wounding others, or sounding insane. Somehow, I managed to stay aware, to witness this impatience. It was stress, releasing... Sign in to see full entry.

I’ve Got Your Number

I’ve Got Your Number I’ve got your number; I know you inside out…. Why am I so blind to my own dysfunctions? For that matter, why are you? We do not want the gift, To see ourselves as others see us. We aren’t ready. Dear Friend, there will come a time When we shall prize the revelation Of that which was hidden From our conscious awareness. Learn to rise above the praise and critique. Creator made you just the way you are. There were no mistakes. The Universe wanted you just this way. Do not fear... Sign in to see full entry.

Staring Death in the Eye

Staring Death in the Eye It started suddenly, all at once. I would have to catch myself or fall over. Still not knowing what that’s all about, I looked death in the eye. “What rare old age disease wants to take me out?” I was bemused at my calmness, Intrigued by my acceptance of my eventual, yet inevitable demise. But mostly, I was reminded how precious each moment is. How many moments I have wasted! The still small voice spoke, “Every moment and every thing is perfect. You made no mistakes that...

The Scripture of Nature

The Scripture of Nature Have you spent time reading scripture? Just take a walk in the woods. Do you seek the Truth? Lay down under the night sky. You are not separate from the Earth and Sky that birthed you. Come out of your air-conditioned world. You will starve to death in your sterile cage. Listen, friend, Shams found out the doors are not locked. Sun and Moon, Earth and Sky, Rock and Tree; all these call you to Live. "The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth." There is no... Sign in to see full entry.

The Ecstasy of Peeing in the Woods

The Ecstasy of Peeing in the Woods Walking in the woods is renewing, But, sometimes you just have to pee. Oh, sweet release! I feel the cleansing. I know the miracle of elimination. I sigh, life is good, And we are blessed. The vegetation below my feet rejoice At this blessing shower from above. Nature recycles all. Thank you for this blessed urination. All Nature witnesses to the Abundance of Creator. Do not look around, Only a squirrel is watching, And it is not her first time. Are you... Sign in to see full entry.

Smiling Forehead

Smiling Forehead You can kinda tell when you are in the Presence of a Smiling Forehead. When from within, it tickles a bit. When you see it in another, it feels like a kind sweetness. Whether from within or without, the smiling forehead makes its light known. Inayat Khan first used this term. It became a focus point for practices of breath. Can you picture an inner smile that kisses your forehead from the inside out? If you close your eyes, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of it, glowing in... Sign in to see full entry.

Becoming Conscious

Becoming Conscious Become conscious of what you seek. If you do not, it will drive your life down many dead end streets and cul-de-sacs. You may marry your Mother or Father. You may buy a car that drives you. Or seek shortcuts to wealth and fame. None of these roads will matter. No unconscious seeking will lead anywhere that counts. The Universe is tapping you gently on the shoulder. “Awaken, dear one!”, she says. Your dream may be so sweet or a terror never ending. When you wake, you will see... Sign in to see full entry.
