A Gift of Love.
A gift of Love -You Tube.
Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi Balkhi was a 13th century Muslim Sufi saint. After so many centuries his message of Love is being rediscovered and spread by people around the world. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi Balkhi or as commonly known as Rumi has written a few books among them is his famous Masnavi in Persian language. His main theme in his books are Love of Allah(god), which made him love humanity, nature and everything good. In his burning in the flame of love he has written many poems and couplets. The Love of Allah was ignited in his heart by his spiritual teacher(Murshid/ Shaikh) Shams e Tabrizi who took Rumi as his only student(seeker/ salik) throughout his life. To this day Rumi's spiritual tradition continues known as Mevlavi Spiritual Order of Islamic Sufism( similar to Naqshbandia, Qadriya, Chistia, Soharwardia, Naqshbandiah Owaisiah spiritual orders), they are also known as whirling dervishes. Rumi's message is of Love, which people need the most in these days. There is great wisdom in his poetry and his message of Love is for all.
Having listened to this video of the works of Rumi as presented by the likes of Deepak Chopra and friends, Madona, Demi Moore, Rosa parks and many others, I felt like i was in the presence of great minds through the 'Power of Love'. It was as though they came as a saving grace for one who was slowly drowning into the nadir of his spiritual being. Al Rumi has been to me the greatest of Poets whose works had touched my heart in the past. Listening to his words again after for so long i realized how i had forgotten what it is to Love, the Love of the Divine.
How often in my silent prayers i have expressed my Love to my Lord, however not till very early this morning did i realize yet again what it really meant to be in Love with Allah (God). All my trials and worldly tribulations slips away into oblivion as I listened to the words of Rumi as recited by these great minds, recited with their own inner passion. Perhaps this too will pass as someone once said, however I accept it as a fact that it was a Gift of Love for me when i stumbled upon this video.
When your silent scream is loud enough to be heard out there in outer space, the Lord answers and His answer will surprise and uplift you from your drowning state of spiritual forgetfulness. His love or call it what you may will penetrate your being and give you the strength to charge on and and forge yet to greater heights of your creative energy, if only you call out to Him loud enough in your hour of need. In the darkest moment of night, of your spiritual nadir, your silent voice is heard from within and transmitted into the Universe and the Universe answers by giving you a poem, a parable, a discourse, for you to reflect upon and be released of your bondage that you and only you have created for yourself
In the words of Eckhart Tolle, in your presence is the essence of who you are, that from which all is manifested.
