Music of Ineffable Beauty

~ Music of Ineffable Beauty ~

Love is a gift
that unwraps itself
in the Unseen until
it reaches the vessels
it is attributed to
by divine command.
Every wave that transports it
creates a Music of ineffable beauty.
Upon its reception
in the material dimension,
the quality of this Love results
from our heart’s condition;
the purer the heart, the deeper the Love.
When we understand this Law
how can Love not be sacred?
Like every precious gift
it must be cherished,
cultivated with consistency
patience and spiritual intelligence~
For devoted lovers,
Love is the greatest of endeavors
to undertake for it impacts
the very soul of those they bond with
and this extends to everything
created out of such a bond.
Lo! I just heard the command to retreat~
My dear one, let me seal my lips
for now the Exalted Assembly appears!

~ Upon Our Re~Union ~

O heart of my heart,
if only you knew
of the vertiginous Love
you are returning to,
you’d break down in tears!
The movements of Bliss
offered to you through
this nocturnal dictation
are but a glimpse
of what awaits us
upon our Re~Union…

Luxuriance of Freedom

soul-reverence

Spiritual artists learn from Inspiration to flow with the luxuriance of Freedom. This acquired state of Wholeness becomes an essential aspect of their very being and existence so any experience that contrasts with this natural occurrence feels hindering as it represses the soul’s inherent way of being~ In that sense, Art’s purpose is sacred as it is an alley to the Beauty of the Divine which is our origin~

Once the soul has tasted the nectar of the sublime Stream that animates the Universe and the awareness of the Artist, nothing compares to the intensity of such a Love~ It’s the closest thing to the Afterlife’s Bliss for a fragrant soul. Very few are those who have awakened to the Wisdom that compels one to embrace this Reality in a culture of distractions that numbs our senses with its powerful ego-based illusions. Immersed in the intense subtleties of Beyond, the Sage-Artist cultivates his grace and shares it for the sake of the collective soul’s exaltation.

Wisteria-Scented One

Wisteria-Scented

~ Wisteria-Scented One ~

I sit by the lake
of your being, gazing
at the unraveling sky
your heart offers;
from this sweet vertigo,
myriad of verses
surround every gesture
you make, O majesty!
How graceful you are,
my wisteria-scented one!
You lead me on the Path
of Love, losing myself
with every step that kisses
Mawla’s footprints:
with you near,
Heaven tastes like this!

Find your inner Joy
so that your happiness
is not dictated by
external circumstances.

Infinite Ways to Love You

~ Infinite Ways to Love You ~

All of my being
bursts with joy
when I see your beauty!
Stars leap in and out of me,
each stroking an harp
whose strings sing your name!
I take in all this harmony,
ecstatic over your humility
and your meeting yourself in
the Azzan* your cells chant.
Oh my, my soul says:
“Welcome to yourself in me,
there are infinite ways
to love you and you and you!”

Celestial Worlds Within

~ Celestial Worlds Within ~

My precious child,
your celestial worlds within
will unleash their ineffable Beauty
once you dissolve before
the throne of the Divine~
This is the purpose
behind the greater Jihad
as transmitted by
Prophet Muhammad (saw)!
Only Love can lead you on this Path~
