Be still, and know that I am God. ~Psalm 46:10 .
God is not known in action, although it is in action where He is manifested.
God is not known in the world, although it is in the world where He plays.
God is not known in another, although it is in another that He is seen.
God is not found in books or scriptures, although it is these very books and scriptures that inspire our search for Him.
God need not be found, because God is the One that is looking.
“Be still and know that I Am God…”
be still and know that “I Am”
One of the changes you might be feeling right now is that you want to be with people who SEE you..the real YOU, all of you, those who get your FULLNESS. It's no longer about hanging with peeps you know just because you know them or have been in their lives for years, it's being with those who understand all of your layers and dimensions.
They see your Journey with deeper eyes!
For the views. For the lessons. For the independence. The vulnerability. The people. The love and the heartbreak. The smiles. The laughs. But also thank you for the tears. For making me lose myself. And then, making me find myself. For the acceptance, the changes and the soul. Thank you for the healing, Granada.
———————————————————————-Everywhere. “Unable to discern the Shape of You,
I see Your presence all around.
Filling my eyes with the love of You,
my heart is humbled,
for You are everywhere. “. ‘A poetic love letter to misunderstood creatures’- (#timemagazine ) on #theshapeofwater ————————————————————————. This is the poem read out during this final scene of De Torro’s masterpiece, The Shape of Water. The poem is widely attributed to 12th century mystical Sufi poet - Hakim Sinai. The most accurate translation is regarded as this -: “The way to You
lies clearly in my heart
and cannot be seen or known to the mind.
As my words turn to silence,
Your sweetness surrounds me.” ————————————————————————This translation is taken from “The Book of Everything, Journey of the Heart’s Desire, Hakim Sanai’s Walled Garden of the Truth” by Priya Henemway. ————————————————————————. That Sufi spiritualism should inform The Shape of Water’s message of love and tolerance comes as little surprise given its incredible director’s wide pool of influences. There are also similar verses in the Tao Te Ching, and the Mystic and Gnostic ideas of Christianity (for example Sophiology in Russian Orthodoxy and the Nag Hammadi Library.). However, in the film the captured and amphibian being is from South America, from the Amazon, the largest moving source of water in our planet –Planet Water. We all have in common water and love, so the message of the poem and the movie is to open our hearts beyond shape or form...to let love flow freely and simply ‘be.’ This image couldn’t capture that sentiment more beautifully. #theshapeofwater#tolernace#intolerance#judgement#allarecreatedequal#sufism#hakimsinai#guillermodeltoro#cinemalovers#whatisreality#cinematography#priyahemenway#rumi#whirlingdervish#ancientpersia#becomingone#arthousecinema @shapeofwatermovie @real__gdt - you are truly a hero not for me (though you are) but for the world, thank you for your beautiful films.
One Reality alone exists—there is no room for two. Our very essence is what we are seeking, and when we find it within, we no longer exist. Only He exists. This is the great knowing. ~Shaykha Fariha Fatima al-Jerrahi
Jika engkau belum mempunyai ilmu, hanyalah prasangka,
maka milikilah prasangka yang baik tentang Tuhan.Begitulah caranya!
Jika engkau hanya mampu merangkak,
maka merangkaklah kepadaNya!Jika engkau belum mampu berdoa dengan khusyuk,
maka tetaplah persembahkan doamu
yang kering, munafik dan tanpa keyakinan;
kerana Tuhan, dengan rahmatNya
akan tetap menerima mata uang palsumu!Jika engkau masih mempunyai
seratus keraguan mengenai Tuhan,
maka kurangilah menjadi sembilan puluh sembilan saja.Begitulah caranya!Wahai pejalan!
Biarpun telah seratus kali engkau ingkar janji,
ayuhlah datang, dan datanglah lagi!Kerana Tuhan telah berfirman: “Ketika engkau melambung ke angkasa
ataupun terpuruk ke dalam jurang,
ingatlah kepadaKu, kerana Akulah jalan itu.”
