The Messenger Virus

Bismillahirahmanirahim

Salam and Sakina to your hearts dear Circle Guides and Dervishes,

Inshallah as we go deeper into the effects of the virus, the messenger to us at this time, we are going deeper into our hearts. This very small creature, a servant of Allah, is in some ways similar to the gnat that overcame Nimrod – it is sent to overcome the tyrant in the world and also in our own self.

It is like a messenger who brings both the good news and the warning. The good news is that it calls the faithful to become stronger, to turn to our Source and Beloved, to become more compassionate, to focus on what is important, to focus on each other and those in need, to remember that the essence is in the human heart  – it is in our self, our family, our neighbor, our community, the earth community –and not in things or achievements, things of the ego. This messenger virus is stripping away the false idols of fame, of self importance, of the illusion that we can live separate from anyone else, of the illusion of nations and exclusive communities. It is unveiling the injustices in our society, that there are people who live on the street, that people do not have enough to eat, that people are not taken care for in their basic needs, that we are spending trillions of dollars on war, war, war, killing people and devastating their lands and their livelihood and robbing the resources that God gave to them for their well-being. Through our blindness we are sending wildlife into the sixth extinction.  We have come to rely on a chemical industry and a medical industry and a corporate industry that is twisted and toxic, killing people and creatures. We rely on false assumptions about the purpose of our life. We are not teaching the truth in schools. We are not teaching the truth at home.

The fundamental illusion that is breeding all others is that we do not know our self and we do not know our Lord and Lover. The beloved Prophet, may he be showered in the loving kindness of Allah, has conveyed from Allah, “Know your self and know your Lord.” This is a fundamental order. If we do not place it as our foundation we have no foundation.

Doing Zikr with others, praying for someone, being kind to someone, giving food to someone, smiling at someone, consoling someone, … these are more important than all the wealth and fame we can acquire. O servants of Rahman!

Let us use this precious time to see the tyrant within our self and to overcome it. Let us use this precious time to know our self. Let us use this precious time to be with Allah Who is ever with us and to be grateful to the One Who is grateful and gracious to us. May our kindness and concern for others increase. May our love burst into flame and consume our fear and our selfishness. May we be increased in knowledge and in all that Allah loves, nearness to Allah and compassion toward all beings.

May this little messenger help us in the Way of truth. May it help us to know our self and know our Lord and Lover. And inshallah it will retreat back to where it came from.

I convey a dream from Waliya of Puerto Rico, now living with her daughter Sofia and her husband Jason outside Miami. She received it in the evening of March 10, the full moon of Rajab.

I had a dream where I was shown a ball with points and I ask myself what this is. A voice was telling me: “Humans are creating this, this virus is being created by humans.”

The voice said that there will be more because of our words. That we are not kind, and that we are the only ones who can transform what is happening with our higher self and consciousness. The voice said that the people who are getting the virus and dying from it knew this before coming to this plane of existence (that they chose this as a sacrifice to point the way to others).
