Wisdom Point: "We Have Come Here Because Of Love, Because God Is Here”
Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim. In the Name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate. Al-salam 'alaykum. May all the peace, the beneficence, and the blessings of God be upon all of us.
My love you (anbu), my dearest brothers and sisters - Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen
The purpose of this category within the Children's On-line Library, called “In-The-Room Stories”, is to share the experience of being with a True Human Being as He joins with the lives around Him, and ever so gradually absorbs them into Himself - to whatever level of absorption they will permit - as He absorbs us back into the Oneness of God from which we have all come, according to God's intention for having created us.
Of course, “In-The-Room” refers to the room of our Father, Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him) when He physically lived with us in Philadelphia, or in Ceylon, or when He was traveling, off and on from 1971 to 1986, and ever before 1971 for our brothers and sisters from Ceylon. And of course that same “In-The-Room” refers to our experience of being with His Holiness within the room of our innermost hearts, which has no time limit, and which is where It is all really happening anyway.
For example, one day In-The-Room the children were discussing what Bawa did in the room, and they were listing the different activities. For example, they noted that He spoke wisdom, He helped people through the difficulties of their lives, He told people to get married and them married them, He advised people about jobs, marriage, children, parenting, and everything else that they brought to the room, He gave people money, He cooked for them, He gave them a place to live, He answered their questions, and explained both the outer and inner meaning of everything they asked about, to the appropriate level of their wisdom.
Bawa listened to all of this for a while and then said to us,
“You don't understand. There is only one thing every going on in the room, and that is Comforting of The Heart. That is God's work”.
And Then Bawa explained to us that Everything else that you see occurring in the room is a slave to that higher purpose, because if a heart is comforted, then it can again becomes peaceful, and can then again turn to God, trust in God, have faith, certitude, and determination in God, allowing the grace of God to again flow into that heart, awakening the wisdom that God has placed within that heart, allowing clarity to grow within that wisdom, allowing that wisdom to liberate the soul from the cross of our elemental body, allowing the soul joined with wisdom to find and join with the Nur, the body of the soul, the light of wisdom, allowing this Light Life to become a slave of God and eternal, allowing this Eternal life to close down the world of hell, reopen the world of souls, open the kingdom of God, and join as One with God as the Child of God.
My dear loving brothers and sisters, please join with this child to tell the "In-The-Room Stories" of being with Bawa as He comforted all hearts and tried, and tried, and tried, to absorb us into Himself, and is still trying, in the room of our hearts, to absorb us into Himself, if we will but let Him.
If you like, please join in this happy endeavor. Send us your “In-The-Room Stories” and we will include them in the “Children's On-line Library”. That would be good. Thank you.
Al-hamdu lillah - all praise and praising belong to God alone.
Allahu Akbar - only God is great.
Al-salam 'alaykum wa-rahmat Allah wa-barakatuhu kulluh -
May all the peace, the beneficence, and the blessings of God be upon you.
My love you (anbu) - Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Louie Beutler)
