These are personal thoughts of mine…
‘The prophet said, “The tuest poetic verse ever said by a poet is: Indeed! Everything except Allah, is perishable.’
I have been thinking about prophets lately. Are prophets chosen or do they merely get their revelations from the Supreme Source because their minds ‘happen’ to be receptive enough to receive theses visions and insights? Is it part of a divine plan or a divine accident?
The mind of Muhammad was a volcano. The collective magma of the yearning of the Arab people burst forth from his mind. Arabia was looking for a revelation from the Supreme Source, just as the Jews and the Christians had received. This yearning built up in the collective unconsciousness of the Arab people and needed an outlet. Something had to burst forth from the deeper mind. This energy needed to have a mind in which to burst from in order to enter the world. It needed the mind of someone who was receptive.
Maybe anyone could have been the Prophet of Arabia. It is well documented that those that work on their mind enough are able to gain great insights and even develop supernormal powers. Muhammad gained his revelations because he had purified his mind to such a great extent through spiritual practices and ethical living that his mind became an antenna for the divine will of God. It is clearly documented that Muhammad went on retreats to Mt Hira to perform spiritual practices by himself about the time that the Angel Gabriel first visited him. It is also told that he had a reputation for being upstanding, honest and fair in his everyday activities, in his business and family life also. His activities had opened him up to be able to receive the visions and become a prophet. And from these visions he changed, becoming a humble merchant, a persecuted leader, and finally the most powerful man in Arabia.
He became the embodiment of the hopes, dreams and yearnings of all Arabia. No wonder he is is so respected and revered by all Muslims. His preaching and selfless striving and life brought about a profound change of consciousness for an entire people!
The magma burst forth from the mind of Muhammad and spiritualised the whole of Arabia. The lava is still spreading today.
Everything comes from God and God is everywhere and everything but to find him you must look within yourself… to look anywhere else would be only looking at an everchanging manifestation or after effect of an idea that was in the mind of God, not God itself.
To know God you must go beyond the dream and go in search of the sleeper. You must dive into your mind and find it’s source.
Everything is mind because everything is part of the dream in the mind of God and everything is the consciousness of the sleeper.
If you dive beyond your conscious mind, beyond the subconscious and internal programmes and become part of the pure mind of God which is the essence of your own mind. This same essence permeates everything. This was the source from which the magma flowed and erupted from Muhammad’s mind.
Muhammad’s revelations came from the pure mind of God. His mind got in tune with the Divine Mind and he became a Great Prophet. The needs of the Arabian people were satisfied when Muhammad became a vessel for the will of God and the foundations of Islam was secured.
From God we come- From God we are- From God we shall return. The mind of God is our source. God is the untainted mind that is our essence and the essence of evertyhing. It is the essence of all.
