In your visualization extend a triangle to the middle of your forehead.  Visualize a star there. Visualize a star and remain in that light of that divine effulgence.

The idea of a deep state in the United States is a conspiracy theory whose adherents assert that there exists a coordinated effort by career government employees to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership. The term, which was originally used to refer to sophisticated shadow governments in countries like Turkey, has also been used in U.S. political science to refer to entrenched government institutions wielding power, without necessarily implying a conspiracy.

The only thing that can save us From illusion is God. We go to a friends house and a dog is loose inside the fence. We do not go in because we may get bit but then a friend will come out of the house and put the dog on a leash. God is that friend and will come to take the danger away.

We may feel like not meditating  but it is like waiting for the waves to subside in the ocean before swimming. And Even if we don’t like walking it’ll still take us forward.

Every time we come back from the trip we say we had such a wonderful trip. We do not realize that at any moment we may make a mistake and an accident will happen.  It is only by God’s grace that we have such a trip.

Climate change is already making heat waves more frequent and severe
While hot weather in mid-July is to be expected, heat waves such as this one are already becoming more common, longer-lasting and intense across much of the world because of human-caused global warming.
For example, a study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences last year found a fingerprint of climate change in excessive heat events worldwide. Specifically, it found that climate change has heightened the chances for record heat across more than 80 percent of the surface area of the globe where there is robust temperature data.

“Trump got rid of the Iran nuclear deal because it was Barack Obama’s agreement,” said Jarrett Blanc, a former State Department official who helped oversee the 2015 deal’s implementation. “If you were to present to Trump the same deal and call it Trump’s deal, he’d be thrilled.”

Hey there!
I’ve been entangled with the mysterious momentum of life’s journey. I’m currently focusing on alignment: spiritually focusing all of my energies in a direction that’s profound for my progress in my short time here on this planet, incarnated in this body. I shall share a few wisdom nuggets later today.

Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:

We frequently say, 'I dislike him,' 'I wish to avoid her,' but if we examine this carefully, we find it is the same element in all that we dislike, the ego. And when we turn to ourselves to see if we have it in us, we find it is there too. We should forget it, therefore, in other people, and first turn our attention to crushing it within ourselves. We should determine to have our house clean even if other people neglect theirs. We should be careful to take away from ourselves any thorns that prick us in the personality of others. There is a verse in the Quran, which says, 'Arise in the midst of the night, and commune with thy Lord... Bear patiently what others say.' This is not only a command to rise in the night and pray, but it also means that by rising in the night we crush the ego, for the ego demands its rest and comfort, and when denied, is crushed. The mystics fast for the same reason. The Sufis base the whole of their teaching on the crushing of the ego which they term Nafs-kushi, for therein lies all magnetism and power.

   from  https://wahiduddin.net/mv2/V/V_27.htm


For every soul there are four stages to pass through in order to come to the culmination of the ego, which means to reach the stage of the rose. The first stage is that a person is rough, thoughtless and inconsiderate. He is interested in what he wants and in what he likes; as such he is naturally blind to the needs and wants of others. In the second stage a man is decent and good as long as his interests are concerned. As long as he can get his wish fulfilled he is pleasant and kind and good and harmonious; but if he cannot get his wish and cannot have his way, then he becomes rough and crude and changes completely. And there is a third stage, when someone is more concerned with another person's wish and desire, and less with himself; when his whole heart is seeking for what he can do for another. In his thought the other person comes first and he comes afterwards. That is the beginning of turning into the rose. It is only a rosebud, but then in the fourth stage this rosebud blooms in the person who entirely forgets himself in doing kind deeds for others. In Sufi terms the crushing of the ego is called Nafs Kushi.

 Cheesy How are you today? Our portal is small but I am wondering, will we see more of what inspires and moves you to create?

See you soon!
