Radiance in You

Visual Sufi Poetry by Aïda Touré

“We keep the Earth radiant and beautiful by exploring the completeness of our souls. Each one of us is a full receptacle of The Hidden Treasure; this Beauty stored inside animates the voice heard at night that says: ‘Have you shown some of your majesty today?’ “

Threshold of True Love

~ Threshold of True Love ~

We constantly are on the threshold of true Love.
With every breath, we are susceptible

to fall in it, completely… to dissolve in it,
without any ego, without any fear,

without such hindering veils,
only Transparency is left…

Adversity & the Higher Self

All violence is the result of inner pain, we must remedy this by healing ourselves individually and then collectively, through self-Love, through conscious uncovery of the divine attributes instilled in our soul by the Beloved… We are here to express those attributes while the external world exerts its coarse energies against this innate cosmic purpose yet the higher self’s grace must triumph by experience with such adversity. This is the reality we all have in common yet the difference in our journey is in the way we choose to react to pain; whether we choose to overcome it through compassion, or we choose to be defeated by it through destructive patterns… Love is the Way within and without that will restore this realm to Harmony and Balance~

In this sacred process, Artists’role is of the highest importance so in order to honor this collective uplifting endeavor, I will share works by creatives I discover and who honor the Light within us that awaits to be unveiled to each one of us… inshAllah~

Feast of Light

Blessed Ramadan to All~

Visual Sufi Poetry by Aïda Touré

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!”
