Dhikr, Fikr and Himmah - Remembrance, Discrimination and Yearning
The Path lies in dhikr, fikr and himmah. Dhikr is the remembrance of God, from whom I am separated by my self. It is this illusion that is caused by me that is the cause of this barrier, separation. So it is a process of elimination. If I overcome the self, if I remove all of these images, all of these goggles that I have erroneously put on, then I am bound to be less separated from that which is the source of all beingness.
Morning in the Plantation
Parchment-like, thin as a muslin veil,
The radiant green banana fronds glistened and waved farewell to the morning mist.
Like victory flags parading on the hilltop,
blending the orchard songsofbuds, trees and palm fronds,
