Seventh Dimension Love

Wearable painting by Aida Toure

~ Seventh Dimension Love ~

Love is the union of divine qualities,
the hidden suddenly revealed
tending to ineffable beauty;
the lotus that leaps out of
the lover’s soul as an offering
to the collective soul…

The Bliss of Tawhid

goldensalat
The stiller you are,
the deeper Light
dances through you
and draws others to Itself
to evidence the bliss of Tawhid~
This intimate gathering is
the purpose of your being,
one verse comes to mind:
“And you shall all return!”
This divine mystery’s sign
is tremendous Grace,
anyone who sees it
completely falls in love
with the Beloved.

Feast of Light

dervish_love

For a month eyes will be shut to the external world so the self grows more aware of the Breath’s nourishment. The material dimension loses its grip on the soul that seeks to be with the Presence~ to be beyond all that is not, la ilaha illa Allah! Colors, scents, suras will be nutrients to the selfless self that dances with the prophets (as). The sweetness of Returning supersedes the one of not owning anything~ We are Poor for the sake of True Wealth, say:

Bismillah,
my love, the Moon is out,
come sit at our table,
the feast of Light
is starting tonight!

Nothing Other than You

Nothing Other than You - jewel by Aïda Touré

Nothing Other than You – jewel by Aïda Touré

~Nothing Other than You~

There are infinite ways
to near the Beloved,
bead after bead
revolving like micro spheres
in reverence,
the heart tears open,
leaning toward Hu
and we lose our selves:
“there is nothing other than You!”

~We Seek What We Are~

We seek what we are,
we seek mirroring,
the reciprocal light
and latitude that only
Divine mercy brings~
To behold you
is to behold me.
