MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANNUKAH, HAPPY KWANZA, HAPPY SOLSTICE and MUBARAK MILAD AY ISSA (Congratulations on the birth of Jesus)
In honor of the Holydays, I am sending you a quote from a Sufi Master that Mom met in Afghanistan years ago. Little did she know at the time that all the men and women she interacted with were Sufi Masters. Like me, Sufis believe that time is simultaneous no past, present or future just the eternal now.
The following is what the Sufi Master, Servant of the Creator told her.
„What happened 2000 years ago is happening in this moment. Your body is the Virgin Mary. The Spirit is (the) Christ, the Word that was conveyed through (Archangel) Gabriel the eternal messenger. The breath (the quickening in Mary’s womb) is the Mercy of God, and it is that breath that quickens the soul………
„There are many paths to God, (Allah, Yahweh, Brahma, Great Spirit etc.) but the way of Mary is the sweetest and most gentle. If you can melt into Mary, the matrix, the blueprint of life, the Divine Mother, you will be formed and shaped in (the) Christ……… and thus through the breath of God’s Mercy you will come into being………
„Mary is the Divine Mother……… the matrix of all divine possibilities ………here in our world. A Sufi is called ‚the son (or daughter) of the moment.‘ As you melt each moment into Mary, something is being redeemed that a child may be born, the son (or daughter) of the moment.
„Mary was chosen to bear Jesus because she kept her purity intact. ………“ (What does this mean?) „It means to be completely adaptable, to flow with each moment, to be like a running stream cascading from the water of life itself. To be pure is to spread joy, and joy is the unfoldment of the knowledge of the perfection of God. ………The eternal messenger is always within, wanting to unfold the moment through the Word, and one day when Mary is recognized again, there will be a reappearance of (the) Christ, manifested in the outer world. „Remember who Mary is, and one day when you are ready, and when God so wills it, you will (understand) what I have told you.“
May All of you celebrate a very………
BLESSED, JOYFUL, LOVING, PEACEFUL, HEALTHY, FRUITFUL, and RELAXING HOLIDAY!
Mom and I will take some time off to spend with friends and family from December 23rd thru January 4th.
