Wisdom Point: We Are All Sitting On God's Lap, And God Is The One
Who Is Conducting Our Life, Not us
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 Library, Wisdom Stories, is to learn to sit on the lap of God, as His Holiness tells us a story, as this child has learned to do.
For as His Holiness teaches us,
"We are all sitting on God's lap,
and God is the One who is conducting our life,
My dearest loving brothers and sisters, this is the reality of our life, of all of our lives, and the only difference between us, is do we realize it, do we realize this truth and lose ourselves within it, as God within us tells the story of True Man within God, and True Man within us tells the story of God within True Man, or do we deny this truth of "who we are", of "where we are", and of "what is happening" in our life, and instead nourish and grow a life of separation differences within us that keeps us separate from each other, separate from the Creation of God, and separate from God. The choice is ours.
And the completion of the story of True Man within God within us is True Man within us the Creation of God within us, and the completion of the story of God within True Man within us is God within True Man within us, is the Oneness of God and True Man within us, which in truth is God, not the god of separation and differences that we tend to worship as God. We must think about this a little. It is very important.
In this way, the life and words of His Holiness, of our Father, Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him) are in truth the life and words of God for this age, for this age of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him), the are of Rahim, when God pulls everything back into Himself, from which it all came
We must always take the words of His Holiness as God talking to us, as God telling us "Who we are", as God telling us, "Where we are", and as God telling us, "What is happening" in our life. Then our life will become complete and we will be successful in our life.
We must make the words of His Holiness our words, and share only these words with our brothers and sisters. All other words are the words of separation and differences that we have heard while living in the world of separation and differences that we now, in our ignorance, call our world, our body, our home, our family, our friends, and our life.
But they are all false, because in truth God is our world, our home, our family, our only true friend, and our true life, the life within our life, the life of God to the world. And by sitting on the lap of God and listening to the words of His Holiness we transform our life of separation and differences into a life of oneness and unity, a life of justice and truth, a life of compassion and unity, a life of "oneness with" rather than "separation from".
These wisdom stories are what happens in the heart of this child as this child sits on the lap of God and listens to the words of His Holiness, to the words of our Father, Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him).
May we all learn to do this, instead of listening to the world. Amen.
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)
