Of the Heart

painting with my nephew © 2011 Aïda Touré

Bismillah, endeavors undertaken from the heart resonate beyond time and space for within the heart The Divine reigns~ Working from this realm renders life’s purpose magnificent as the lover lives in harmony with her/his Source which is truly the cause of all Beauty, Wisdom and sublime attributes.

The so-called knowledge that transpires from entire lifetimes of books study can never equate authentic Knowledge attained by the one who is attuned to the heart and who does not discuss nor debate for s/he who knows observes quietude. With this unconventional attitude the sage confounds the intellectual who is very talkative as he still seeks to know.

Love has expanded the breast of the mystic therefore s/he has learned to surrender the limits of the intellect to the Infinity of the heart therefore Wisdom has revealed itself to her/him. Only inward cultivation of Light can open one to such a state, this glorious opening usually inclines one to silence, catalyst to the greatest form of teaching and Knowledge. Similarly, when a deep love flows between beings, they barely speak, as words become superfluous for them, they communicate in a divine way, drawing truths from the fountain of Knowledge the heart contains. In humility, they revel in the Light: this revelry is beyond verbal expression and in this state occurs the highest form of activity…

    …and yet you speak and write. Thank you for breaking the adab of silence and sharing. After all… we cannot be fasting 24 hours. Hehehe.

    Peace be with you and your beautiful painting of many colours.

    wa min Allah at-taufiq.

  2. Peace be with you too Brother.
