- Do we have a set of senses inside – with our thoughts, intellect and emotions
Do we have a set of senses inside
10. Many ancient cosmologies and prophets have spoken on humans having a second complete set of senses in an ‘invisible way’ inside residing with their thoughts, emotions and soul. A separate set of senses for seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touch.
Our outer senses help us explore
Our outer senses help us explore the world and assemble the data from our senses. Our external senses. When we learn to connect with our inner senses then we find out that they do not need to be satisfied with external things. So that would translate from our perspective to instant satisfaction or more appropriately contentment.
When we are satisfied we are content, in order to be content we have to not want, in order to not want we have to believe there is no lack, in order to believe there is no lack we have to turn our ears off to the world.
Subtle communications for contentment
There is nothing outside of our skin that will satisfy us or bring us contentment. All contentment and satisfaction can only be derived for noticing your inner senses which make very subtle communications to you that can only be heard when you quiet yourself and your body and your attention to the outside world.
From one of our heroes, Guru Bawa from Ceylon, he lived over 200 years, mostly alone in the jungle.
A man asked a Sufi, “People talk about male and female, but what is the essential difference between the two?”
The Sufi replied, “O man, both are formed of the five elements. The concept of male and female applies to the body. The Artist who created the male and female merely decorated them differently. The body is a cage, a house in which either can dwell, but you are deceived by the decorations.“
If you think of this with wisdom, you will see that womanly qualities are soft and delicate. In the decorations of womanliness, there is a beauty that is like gold, a beauty that attracts. The energy in their faces and bodies is like a magnet. The male has a similar magnetic energy, but his is on the inside. Though men lack the gentleness and outer softness which attracts externally, they have the strong inner magnetic energy which is attracted by, and connects to, the outer magnetism residing in the face and form of a woman.
“The world says male and female, but if you reflect with your wisdom, you will realize that male and female are like two kinds of breath, like the sun and the moon. The two breaths are called the art of the sun’s heat, which is the male, and the art of the moon’s coolness, which is the female.
“In the sky, the moon is lower and the sun is higher. The moon takes in the light of the sun and sends it out as cool yellow rays in the night.
4.The sparrow of subtle wisdom said to a man of wisdom, “I have flown over many countries in my search for God. I have been in temples, mosques, churches, and places of worship on which the names of the four religions have been written, but wherever I flew all I found was troubles and wars. I went to worship, pray, meditate, and sing devotional songs, but all I found was arguments and fighting. I went to one place to worship and they were arguing. I went to another place to pray and they were quarrelling. I went to another place to meditate and they were fighting. There were racial and religious fights. I asked them why they were fighting.“‘
My god is real! All the others are false!’ each one shouted.
“Each person spoke of his own god, and the fights continued. Then a song came to me. I sang to God, asking Him to show me a good place.
Fighting in this religion, Fighting in that religion, Fighting in the religion In which they were born, Fighting in the religion In which they will die. In which temple or mosque Can I worship You O God, O Allähu?
“I sang this to God and I cried. I said, ‘Tell me a way. Show me the place in which I can worship You.’“O wise one! I have been suffering for so long without an answer. Tell me in what temple I can worship to receive liberation. O wise man, can you tell me of a place in which to worship?
”The wise man said, “Your situation is difficult. Having flown and wandered all over the world, it is difficult to know the One and pray to Him. The four religions are right, and your reasoning is also right. But there is one thing you must realize: in the place in which you must know yourself, there is only One who prays. Only when you know yourself and when you see your soul, can you begin to pray.” The wise man said this.
The bird questioned him further, “Will you explain the four religions in more detail, O wise man?”
“The first is the place where you were conceived, formed, and born. It is the religion of Zabür, or Hinduism, where temples are built. That is the place of creation, the place in which statues, forms, men, and animals are displayed as examples. Therein are Shakthi and Shiva, Adam and Eve (A.S.). It is the place of intermingling, joining, forming, and growing.
“The second religion is Jabrät, Zoroastrianism. It is the fire of hunger, illness, old age, and death. The fire of your stomach burns to ash everything you bring to it. That religion is also in your body.“
The third religion is the religion of the pure spirit. It is the world of the four hundred trillion, ten thousand spiritual forces called shakthis. This is Injïl, Christianity, the religion of thoughts, vapors, and spirits, the religion which exists in the region of your chest.
“The fourth is light. The fourth religion makes you perceive through the senses of sight, taste, hearing, and smell, thereby helping you to understand what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong. Furqän, or Judaism-Islam, the fourth religion, is the head.
“These are the four. You are the four religions. You are the scriptures. You are the temples. You must see them within yourself. If you had understood this, you would not have seen fighting in all the places to which you flew and you would not have suffered so much.
“When you understand this, transcend the four religions, know yourself, and go beyond, then you can see our Father. Only after this does true prayer and worship begin.
“There is no work to do in the world, the only work is within the self. There is no fighting in the land, the fighting is within you. There are no differences in the land, the differences are within you. There are no troubles in the land, the troubles are in your own judgment. There is no divisiveness in creation, only in your own state.
“The fault is not in you, but in standing back and letting the things in your mind take over. If you catch and control your mind, this will not happen.“
Realize this, O sparrow, and act accordingly. Find a wise man and learn. Do not waste your time flying over the land and looking at things. Fly inside yourself and see.”
This is what the wise man said.Bawa Muhayadeen Ceylon and Philadelphia ? – 1986
