  The Buddha was asked:
-To what extent can a person be a speaker of the way?

He answered:
-If a person teaches the way in order to transcend the tyranny of the
material things and to teach how to transcend feelings, perceptions,

vertical line Sitting In Chair Is Not Zazen.

Don’t control or manipulate the breath. You don’t have to make the breath happen in any particular way. It will happen by itself if you take a posture that you can be reasonably comfortable in and position your body properly.

vertical line Song of the Flute (Ney)

1-Listen to this flute while it is complaining,The story of separation (from God) it’s explaining.

2-Ever since I’ve been plucked from my *real ground, (*real ground the original ground where soul of man was happy being closer to God, his creator and Lover)Men and women, all cry with my yearning sound.

3-I want a breast perforated like mine with pains of separation,Only to that breast I can tell the story of my lamentation. (Here says, “Not all can feel the pain of yaerning if they are unaware of God’s breath in them)

4-If anyone from his origin falls away,He looks for it again by finding some way.

5-In every company I cry and moan,Both the happy and the unhappy are moved by my tone.

6-Everyone from his opinion tried to be my friend,And did not bother to discover my esoteric secret and trend.

7-My secret is not concealed from any painful cries,But many fail to have that light of ears and eyes

8-The soul and the body are not from each other concealed,But to many ears and eyes this fact is not revealed.

9-The breath in the *flute is not a simple blow, it is fire,He who has no such fire, let him perish and expire.(*Ney it is not a flute actually its similar but not, it is used in Sufi music. I has 7 holes, 7 is a sacred number in this case refers to 7 letaif secret centers of human souls, it can be compared to 7 chacra’s in some ways but not exact things)

10-It is the fire of love (Divine Love) that has turned the flute demented,And it is the love/desire that keeps the wine fermented.

11-The flute is friend for those who lose their companions,Our chest is also perforated like the flute’s divisions.

12-Who has ever seen an antidote and poison like the flute ?Who can ever find a soothing and sympathizing friend like the flute ?

13-The flute is telling stories of dangerous ways and coils,And the love stories of Majnun and his blood stained toils.

14-The knower of this feeling is none but the *insensible one,As only an ear can hear the speaking of the tongue.(*”the insensible here means a man above dimensional senses)

15-Because of our sorrows we have lost the sense of time,And our days have accompanied pains and pine.

16-If the days are passing by, “let them pass away”O Thee, the Only Pious One, keep with me Thy stay.

17-If one is not fish, with water soon he will be tired,If one has no daily bread, his time shall be undesired.

18-For an immature man the stage of mature man is high,So cut a long story short and say to him Goodbye.


RUMI

vertical line Being afraid of people is a legitimate fear these days. Not all people, not people in general but there are qualities of certain persons that cause hesitation and uncertainty when they are present.

It is the time we live in where people cannot be trusted. The reason for this is because the person isn't truly there or isn't really present to the moment but he or she is caught in their past or is too involved in their own agenda.

This doesn't make the person bad or unwholesome. They are simply competing for attention which is putting off the present moment and creating a shaky appearance.

Understandably this fear is real as it comes with a sympathetic response. We have to embrace this reality in our daily lives for ourselves and for others. We need to help each other out by reminding each other of what is truly here for us and why we are together in a connected world.
