Constant Intuition And Supreme Desire

Poem By Genova Maaa my mother

The object of the mystic's final quest
and of his constant intuition
is an object of wild adoration
and supreme desire.

Jalau 'din (Jalaluddin Firuz Khalji) said:

'With Thee a prison would be a rose garden,
oh thou ravisher of hearts.
With Thee hell would be a paradise,
oh thou cheer of souls' (From the Mesnevi,
quoted in the Appendix to 'The Flowers or Rose Garden of Sadi') .

Comments about Constant Intuition And Supreme Desire

Jalaluddin Firuz Khalji: Born: October 14,1220, Qalati Ghilji, Afghanistan Died: July 20,1296, Kara-Manikpur Place of burial: Delhi, India Successor: Alauddin Khalji House: Khalji dynasty Jalaluddin was the first sultan of the Khalji dynasty, who reigned from 1290 to 1296. Jalaluddin built his capital at Kilughari, a few miles from the city of Delhi, and completed the unfinished palace and gardens of Sultan Qaiqabad. He ruled much of Northern India for six years, from 1290 to 1296. Jalaluddin Khalji was born as Malik Firuz, in Qalat, Zabul Province, into Khalji family. He was of Turkic ethnic background. He was appointed by Sultan Qaiqabad to the fief of Baran and the command of the army. Soon, Sultan Qaiqabad suffered from a paralytic stroke and Firuz marched towards Delhi. The nobles placed Kayumars, the three-year-old son of Qaiqabad on the throne. But the sons of Firuz dashed into the city and carried away the infant Sultan, defeating a force sent in pursuit of them. Most of the Turkic nobles now submitted to Firuz. Qaiqabad was put to death and his corpse was thrown into the Yamuna. On 13 July 1290 Jalal-ud-Din Firuz was enthroned in the palace of Kalughari. He was made a slave from there. After the accession to the throne, Jalaluddin allowed Malik Chhajju, the nephew of Balban to retain his freedom of Kara-Manikpur. The post of wazir was conferred on Khvaja Khatir, who had held it under Balban and Qaiqabad. Fakhr-ud-Din, the kotwal of Delhi was also allowed to continue. Jalaluddin's eldest son received the title of Khan Khanan, his second son received the title of Arkali Khan and his third son received the title of Qadr Khan. He appointed his younger brother the ariz-i-mumalik (army minister) and conferred upon him the title of Yaghrush Khan. His two nephews, Alauddin and Almas Beg received significant responsibilities in the royal household. In 1292, the Sultan defeated a Mongol army who had invaded the Dipalpur-Multan region. He then allowed them to retreat. Jalaluddin was killed in 1296 by his nephew Alauddin. The Masnavi, or Masnavi-i Ma'navi, also written Mesnevi, Mathnawi, or Mathnavi, is an extensive poem written in Persian by Jalal al-Din Muhammad Balkhi also known as Rumi, the celebrated Persian Sufi poet. It is one of the best known and most influential works of Sufism. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines. It is a spiritual text that teaches Sufi's how to reach their goal of being truly in love with God. The title Masnavi-i Ma'navi (Persian: مثنوی معنوی‎‎) means The Spiritual Couplets. The Masnavi is a poetic collection of anecdotes and stories derived from the Quran, hadith sources, and everyday tales. Stories are told to illustrate a point and each moral is discussed in detail. It incorporates a variety of Islamic wisdom but primarily focuses on emphasizing inward personal Sufi interpretation. In contrast to Rumi's Diwan, the Masnavi is a relatively sober text. It explains the various dimensions of spiritual life and practice to Sufi disciples and anyone who wishes to ponder the meaning of life. The Masnavi was started by the Rumi during the final years of his life. He began dictating the first book around the age of 54 around the year 1258 and continued composing verses until his death in 1273. The sixth and final book would remain incomplete. It is documented that Rumi began dictating the verses of the Masnavi at the request of his favourite disciple, Husam al-Din Chalabi, who observed that many of Rumi’s followers dutifully read the works of Sana’i and ‘Attar. Thus, Rumi began creating a work in the didactic style of Sana’i and ‘Attar to complement his other poetry. These men are said to have met regularly in meetings where Rumi would deliver the verses and Chalabi would write them down and recite them back to him. Each book consists of about 4,000 verses and contains its own prose introduction and prologue. Some scholars suggest that in addition to the incomplete Book 6, there might have been a seventh volume. The six books of the Masnavi can be divided into three groups of two because each pair is linked by a common theme. Books 1 and 2: They “are principally concerned with the nafs, the lower carnal self, and its self-deception and evil tendencies.” Books 3 and 4: These books share the principal themes of Reason and Knowledge. These two themes are personified by Rumi in the Biblical and Quranic figure of the Prophet Moses. Books 5 and 6: These last two books are joined by the universal ideal that man must deny his physical earthly existence to understand God’s existence. A manuscript of the Masnavi from the city of Shiraz: In addition to the reoccurring themes presented in each book, Rumi includes multiple points of view or voices inviting the reader to fall into “imaginative enchantment.” There are seven principal voices that Rumi uses in his writing: The Authorial Voice – Conveys the authority of a Sufi teacher and generally appears in verses addresses to You, God, or you, of all humankind. The Story-telling Voice – May be interrupted by side stories that help clarify a statement, sometime taking hundreds of lines to make a point. The Analogical Voice – Interruptions to the flow of narration in order to explain a statement by use of analogy. The Voice of Speech and Dialogue of Characters – Many of the stories are told through dialogue between characters. The Moral Reflection – Supported by quotations from the Quran and hadith The Spiritual Discourse – Similar to analogical and model reflections. Hiatus – Rumi occasionally questions his own verses and writes that he cannot say more because the reader would not be capable of understanding. The Masnavi has no framed plot and includes a variety of scenes, from popular stories and scenes of the local bazaar to fables and tales from Rumi’s time. It also includes quotations from the Qur'an and from hadith accounts from the time of Mohammed. Although there is no constant frame, style, or plot, Rumi generally follows a certain writing pattern that flows in the following order: Problem/Theme - - - -] Complication - - - -] Resolution.
A very romantic and heartfelt affirmation of love. Love is the most beautiful expression God created for human kind to enjoy. A wonderful write Tony. May God hear your prayer.
Adoration and love are like two neighbors, when we adore someone for sometime, ultimately we start loving that one. With that someone the pains appear as pleasures. A beautiful poem.

Our Soul Is Kindly Rooted In God, In Endless Love.

We may not come
to the knowing
of our own soul
until we first

With His Stripes We Are Healed.

His visage and his form was
so marred more than any man.

He hath no form nor comeliness;

When Sensual Pleasures Give Way

When love awakens the soul,
when it fills us with a pure joy,
then the love is real.

Pure Nothing.

The content of absolute detachment
is seen as pure nothing.
Pure nothing is the highest point
at wich God can work in us as he pleases.

Apprehension Of The Heart

When essential goodness,
truth and beauty, light
life and love are apprehended
by the heart, whether the heart

Absorbed In This New Blissful Act Of Vision

Ignorant as yet of the final act
of communion, and absorbed
fully in this new blissful
act of vision, the subject forgets
