The Son of the Moment

July 1, 2010

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

The sufi is the son of the Moment, O companion! Saying ‘tomorrow’ is not among the conditions for (being on) the Path.
- Rumi, from the Mathnawi 1:133

The Sufi is of the River, not of time, for ‘with God is neither morn nor eve’: there the past and the future and time without beginning and time without end do not exist … He (the Sufi) is son of that ‘moment’ by which is to be understood only a denial of the divisions of times, just as ‘God is One’ is to be understood only as a denial of duality, not as a description of the true nature of Unity.Ananda Coomaraswamy

Ya Haqq!

GIVE ME OH GOD
DEEP THOUGHTS
HIGH DREAMS

THE NARROW PATH
THE WIDE OUTLOOK

AMEN.
