Bawa.  Here is an On-line copy of the E-mail Version of a "Beautiful Review" of Chapter 29, "The Lotus Pond" (www.SpiritualBook002Chap29.homestead.com), in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom" (www.ThePearlOfWisdom.
homestead.com), by His Holiness, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), for your reading and hopefully for your sharing enjoyment. Amen. Ok?

Bawa.  A beautiful Spiritual Letter to each of My Children, who in truth is My dearest loving Son or Daughter Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be please with Him, and with Us), if you like, that is, if you look through the eyes of your Shaikh, of Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him), which are the 99 wilayats or powers of God within you, that is, are the 99 beautiful names of God in the Asma'el Husna within you, which in truth are the windows of your heart, if you like, through which everything in the 18,000 Universes within you can Now be seen, and understood, again, if you like, but this time within you, for in truth the Choice is yours, not God's. That is, the Choice of whether any of "The Truth and Reality of You" happens within you, or not, in your lifetime. Amen.

Bawa.  And in this way, a beautiful Spiritual Letter from God within My Children to God within My Children, which in truth is everyone living in your age, if you like, that is, if your true intention for the life within you, that is, for your soul life, for your 6th life, for your Light Life within you, which is Jesus (peace be upon Him) within you, is to again become "One with" God within you, or at least to truly Start to, in partnership with God within you, before you die to the flesh.

Bawa.  And in this way, and only in this way, you can truly avoid the consequences of your current life of "selfishness" in the world, of "separation from", all of which in truth is an eternal life of hell within you, for "hell is simply the realization that you have "separated yourself" from God within you", all of which can only be avoided in your lifetime if you are wise, that is, if you wise up before it is too late, that is, if you Start to live as "One with" God, if you Start to demonstrate to God the True Disciple, as this child learned to do when Bawa was still living in the world, First on the "outside" of you and then within you, using Now Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) as your Father, your Shaikh, and your Guru,
First
on the "outside" of you and then within you.

Bawa.  So in the End you don't get an eternal life within you as "separate from" God within you, which in truth is the true result of your current state, you don't get some illusory heaven on another "outside" of you, as My Children still mistakenly believe. 
But instead,
Now you again become "One with" God, First on the "outside" of you
and then
within you, but this time with you doing it using Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) as your Father, your Shaikh, and your Guru, First on the "outside" of you and then within you, but this time for eternity, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so it will never leave you again. Amen.

Bawa.  And in this way, "A True Love Letter" to "Our" dearest loving Son and
Daughter Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) living at the Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Fellowship, both within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you, as the true "Gift of God" now for your age, and for your life, if you like, coming Now to you and My Children through the heart of "Our" dearest loving Son, and your dearest loving brother Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), if you like, in whom "We are well pleased". Amen.

"Longer Title"
of Spiritual Letter 130

"Oh woman,
are you the woman
who has shaken up the total universe
knowing the philosophical meaning of these four & their result,
of hunger, illness, old age, and death?
Oh woman,
do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings
and play games before my very eyes,
the six acts of lust, hatred, greed, miserliness, bigotry and envy,
and the sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy the body,
like the dog of desire and falsehood? 
O woman,
you are the devil that develops my body
and makes me wonder about like a dog on this earth.
You are my mother but a devil for this earth.
Oh you desirous mother,
I shall attack you and break you.
I shall feed you with the heavenly words of "Mother!  Father!". 
I shall show you the Primordial One. 
I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you,
compressing them within three years"
- M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.).
From Chapter 29, "The Lotus Pond", Page 100,
in the book, "The Pearl of Wisdom". "

Bawa.  And a beautiful Spiritual Letter which "We" have given the following
"Expanded Title" (at least in concept, if not just in words), if you like,

Expanded Title
of Spiritual Letter 130

"Join As "One With" Us On The "Outside" of You
To Become "One With" Us Within You,
In Order To Truly Become "One With" God Within You,
In Order To
Truly Understand Your Current State or Station
That In Truth
"All that you see is a dream,
All that you do is just a thought within that dream,
All that you appear as is hidden"
For in truth,
"Life is a feast of the world,
Its Medicine is a time after a time",
For in truth,
Its Medicine is the Remembrance of God,
Before you "Say or Do or Write" anything,
As this child has Now learned to do,
Realizing that in truth,
"Whether or not you are alive in the next moment
Is God's will, not yours",
Realizing that in truth,
"Man is God in the forgetting of himself,
And,
"The Understanding of Today
Becomes the Enemy of Tomorrow",
And,
"Nothing will ever leave you until it is Understood",
And,
True Understanding only occurs through Contrast,
The contrast of your Iman and your fate,
The Contrast
Of your absolute faith, certitude, and determination in God,
and your fate, which is your current life in the world,
And,
"Life is the Victory of your Wisdom
Reasoning over your fate",
And,
"The Justice of God is that
Whatever you intend is what you will receive",
And,
"The more you know about God
The further away from you God moves",
And,
"You must use God to get to God,
Not what God has discarded",
And,
"My Love You".
Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rabil Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Ruler of the Universes)
Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rahman Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Most Merciful One)
Amen, Amen, Ya Rahim Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Most Compassionate One)
Al-hamdu lillah.  Allahu Akbar. Amen.
(All praise and praising be to God, and to God alone,
Only God is Great. Amen)

Bawa.  A Spiritual Letter from God within us all, to the Children of God for this age, which continues to "outline" for you what most of My Children are currently doing wrong, and how to correct their mistake using My Children, that is, using Those of
My Children
who have truly learned from "Us" how to do it right, so in the end, there will be "No Child Left Behind" within you, that is, there will be nothing still "separating God" from God within you.

Bawa.  May God all the peace, the beneficence, and the blessing of God be upon all
of My Children.  May God help all of My Children.  May God be pleased with all of
My Children
.  Amen.

Bawa. My love you - Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us). Amen.

2.  "Original Version" of Chapter 29 -  of "The Lotus Pond", (www.Spiritual
Book002Chap29.homestead.com) in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom", (www.ThePearlOfWisdom.homestead.com) by His Holiness, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us).  Amen

Guru:

There is a pond.  It is at a lower level of earth where water flows into it.  People refer to such a collection of stagnant water as a low lying area.  When it rains the pond becomes filled with water. When the rains continue, dirt and mud too find their way into the pond.  Grass and lotus plants appear in this collection of mud.  People call it a lake when the water does not strain itself and there is plant life.  Some people bathe and others wash themselves in its waters saying,

          "Oh this lake is good."

The water is stagnant and the lotus plants grow in it.  It looks pretty.  Roots and flowers appear in the water.  The leaves are useful to man.  The lotus plants puts out shoots and bear flowers and leaves. 

People now call it a lotus pond.  Some fish appear on their own in the mud at the bottom of the pond. Some fish enter the pond with the flood waters while other fish fall into the pond with the rains from the sky.

The frogs see the pond from a place of elevation and jump into its waters. Waves form and break into all four shores and overflow to expand the pond.  More living creatures migrate into the pond to live there. 

People look at the pond and say,

          "Aha, this is a good lotus pond.  Let us drink its water and rest for a while."

So they drink the water and relax for a while before going on their way.

One person says,

          "Yes, it is a good pond.  There is water.  There is an ache in my stomach.  I shall           ease myself here and wash my hands and feet before I proceed."

Yet others say,

          "Oho, this was earlier a low lying piece of land.  Now it has become a large
          lotus pond.  This water is not so pure. All the rain water in the village collects
          here. Chee!  Chee!  This is not suitable for drinking."

They say this and go away.

Cattle, goats and cows too come to drink the water in the same pond and also to ease themselves, dropping their excreta and urine there.  People come there to pick the lotus leaves and others to gather the lotus flowers for the temple.  Some come to fish.  They all come, each for his individual purpose.

Each person completes the work for which he has come and goes away.

However, the Manu-neesan (man-the-low, man-the-worldly) who sees the pond thinks,

          "What is this?  This is a muddy pond.  It contains the droppings of cattle and
          human excreta.  There are frogs and fishes.  It is not clean.  After all, this was
          only a piece of low lying land once.  There is excreta on one side.  It is dirty.
          Cows drink its water.  There are fish and crocodiles.  There is mud. There are
          lotus flowers.  This pond is impure"

They say this and that and talk about the impurities of the pond.

But if man uses his wisdom (as Manu-eesan or Man-The High, Man-The-Divine) he will realize that where there is a pond, there is mud; where there is mud, there is the blue lotus flower; where there is the lotus, there is impurities; where there is impurity, there are many fish, frogs and similar creatures.

Where there is a pond, people will come there to fulfill their needs.  They will perform their duties and go away.

There is a repulsive impurity in the pond.  But the Angel Mikha'il (peace be upon Him) comes and cleans this impurity and deposits it with a collection of dirt.  The lotus eats this dirt and flourishes.  The flowers bloom into a large size.  The water in the pond becomes clear.  Many creatures live happily in the pond.  The sand on the shores is clean.  The water in the pond is so clear that one sees one's face in it like in a mirror. 

The man who does not cast adverse remarks on the nature of the pond and does his work and goes away is Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).

Just like the secret in man's life (lies in the Qutbiyyat of God within you, within God within you, which is your 6th level of wisdom, which is the wisdom surrounding your soul, just waiting to awaken to the "Presence of God" and to the "Word of God" for your age and for your life, and if you like, then liberate your soul and take it back to God, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so "Your Oneness" will never leave you again, that is, an understanding of "Your Oneness" with God within you, and with what is "Within God" within you, and with what "God is doing" with what is "Within God" within you, which is revealing God to God within you for the benefit of all of the Creation of God within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you for the benefit of your brothers and sisters, so too) the inner meaning of his body lives here (in the example of the lotus pond).
          
Inside of the repulsive pit mixed with many types of dirt, man is formed into a dirty embryo and remains in this state for ten months. Venom is mixed with his flesh, skin and nerves.  At the tenth month he finds his exit through the entrance of the same dirty pit.  At the end of nine months, nine days, nine "nalihai", nine hours, nine minutes, and nine seconds he comes through the passage with fluid oozing out and with a melting heart of desire.

He falls out of the passage gazing at the dirt.  We see it as a baby.  On falling on earth, he gazes at the same repugnant spot which he had desired in his previous existence.

He desires the place called "Mother".  She makes him the rightful owner of four things (hunger, illness, old age, and death). That is why there are some specific differences in man and woman and these differences are referred to as males and females.

The baby looks at the mother and fondles her breast.  It strokes it with its hands and gazes at it with its eyes. It cries and clutches it.  It is this that nourishes the baby and helps it to grow.  The baby falls down, cries and clutches the mother's bosom and sucks it with its mouth. 

The mother says,

          "The baby is crying in hunger and must be given its milk".

As soon as the child is born, he observes that place and knows its inner meaning.  He utters,

          "Are you the mother of these four; hunger, disease, old age, and death?"

He grinds his gums saying,
          
          "Are you the woman who has shaken up the total universe knowing the
          philosophical meaning of these four and their result?"

          "Oh woman, do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings and
          play games before my very eyes - the six acts of lust, hatred, greed, miserliness,
          bigotry and envy, and the sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy the body,
          like the dog of desire and falsehood?"

          "You are the devil that develops my body and makes me wonder about like a dog
          on this earth. You are my mother but a devil for this earth. Oh you desirous
          mother, I shall attack you and break you.  I shall feed you with the heavenly
          words of "Mother!  Father!".

          "I shall show you the Primordial One.  I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you,
          compressing them within three years".
          
So saying, he bites the cheek, kisses the nose, squeezes the breast, kicks the chest, pinches the ears, and does many other things, and completes sixty-one games within a span of three years.

He does this with no malice.  He speaks with the Aathi, The Primordial One and smiles with the mother.

It is this infant having completed the sixty-one sensual arts who is born as
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).  This gnani is called an "infant" by the world and the mother.  Reflect on this and be clarified.

My brothers and sisters, Aathi, the Primordial One converses and laughs with
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), stays with him, plays with him, sings him lullaby, carries him, kisses him and embraces him till he is three years of age.  The ten evil qualities of intoxication, lust, theft, murder, falsehood, jealousy, prejudice, impatience, haste, and arrogance are torn away from him. 

Born as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), with the Aathi (The Primordial One), he completes the sixty-one (of the sixty-four) arts compressed within three years.  He grows happily to a youthful stage.

Brother, it is because the ten evil qualities had been gotten rid of that God loves the
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), trusts him, and is close to him, despite the great task of the sixty-one arts he had completed earlier.

When Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) severs the ten evil qualities, God is to him as He is to the infant. He will kiss him, converse with him, help him, show him love and speak to him.  This child will be a true gnani.  These are the important signs of the body and its power.

Aathi Eeswaran (God) plays with the infant, carries him, gives him milk, sings him lullabies, wheels him around in a pram, feeds him with ambrosia and performs several other things that are beneficial to the child.  This babe and the true gnani are in the same state.  Please reflect carefully about this.

When the child grows up, he catches the same repulsive spot at the second opportunity.  It is called love, infatuation or lust.  He handles this spot at the second opportunity and for this event the world holds celebrations and ceremonies.  The right of procreation in this hell-house of the world is obtained with pride.  In this state of pride, some spots that are to be concealed are kept exposed.
          
But brother, born as human and after having successfully completed the sixty-one sexual arts and reached their finality, he is oblivious to such temptation (at the age of 3 years old).  It is he who is born as (a human), as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) and completes sixty-one of the sixty-four arts in this worldly life, until (or by the time) he is three years of age.  At this stage he is exempted from the other arts (from the last 3 of the sixty-four arts). 

The child thereafter (until he grows up) becomes oblivious to these sexual arts.  The human mother (the mother of the human child) does not recognize the sixty-one arts (that the human child plays out with her) and thinks the child is behaving innocently. 

This babe (or human child) will be a great gnani (by the age of 3 years old).  The Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) sees his greatness and determination.  He plays and laughs with the babe saying,
          
          "Oh great gnani, you have successfully conquered and discarded the sixty-one
          arts".

          "When you reach the age of twenty-one years, the three arts that are unknown to
          you will become four types of women.  They will turn out to be devils who will
          destroy you.  They will show love to your face but cause injury to your heart.
          They will show love that will melt you and lust that will blind your eye.  The ghost
          whom you denounced (earlier) will (then) squeeze your throat".

          "The three arts unknown to you earlier, "love, infatuation, and lust", will join with
          the sixty-one arts already conquered by you to follow you when you are
          twenty-one years of age.  These three arts and the sixty-one will make up the
          sixty-four sensual arts.  The three arts are the four types of women.  Your
          youthful age will try to turn you into a dog".
          
O Precious Son, if you escape from this and become a Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), the Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) will befriend you.  The meaning of this cannot be easily told in full.

But the enormous "Debt of Karmic Births" will send you into three and a half crores of births.

It is those who conquer this enormous debt of birth who are the True Gnanis.  You should know this.  But Son, this is very rare in the world.  These True Gnanis will be like children.  They will conceal themselves.  They will know themselves.  They will worship the Lone God.  They will forget the world and proceed.  They will conquer death.  They will be in seclusion and hiding.  They will not work for glory and fame.  They will not display themselves.  They will possess many virtues, good conduct and behavior.  They will be at prayer and worship the Lone God.  They will be aloof.

Look for a Guru of this high state.  Do selfless service to Him and thereby acquire great benefit and reach the glorious feet of the Master (God).  This is the
Manu-eesan's
(Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) great acquisition of the unattainable and rare gift of birth.
          
When your perform your many rare duties to the "True Guru", and expect no reward, your Guru Consciousness will develop and the Grace of the Guru too will grow.  Through the Grace of the "One True Guru", the Disciple will develop.  He will grow in wisdom and his love for the Aathi (The Primal One) will increase.  His sins will be thereby erased, and this will lead to the disappearance of fever, disease, and hatred.

All this will make the earth pleased and the "Justice of the King" will be enhanced.  Kindness and the love of fellow beings will grow.  The blessings of the Celestial Beings will be showered.  Charity will develop and patience will increase.  Poverty will cease to exist.  Guru Grace will spring forth.  The massive "Debt of Birth" will be erased due to this Grace.  Truth will grow.  The generous Celestial Beings will be alone with you offering you assistance.

But Son, at this point I must take you back to the planting of the tree in the desert, and its greatness.  This tree is the excellent and virtuous "Guru Leader".  All the words spoken Now are about this "Truthful Guru".  Reflect on this and do your service to Him wisely and your wants will be removed. You must perform selfless service towards Him with "One Mind".  Accordingly, the tree of "Guru's Grace" will grow to tower sky high.

Many poisonous winds will attack this tree.  The "Guru's Grace" will receive the poisonous wind and send in its place a good wind that will be of benefit to the country. Likewise, My Son, if the services of a "True Guru" are available in a country, good will accrue and pave the way for the prosperity of that country.

You must look for such a "Tree" and discover "It".  You cannot easily find this tree in any tree-family.  You should not cast aspersions and label the tree as good or bad as the words occur to your tongue.
          
Brother, when such a tree grows in a desert, people want to selfishly and greedily enjoy it for themselves, and prevent its benefit spreading to others.  Contrary to this conception, it is our duty to protect this tree in the desert as we protect a fruit-bearing tree in our garden in the country. 

We must share its benefits with all mankind.  If we thus water this tree with the waters of our love, the fruits of love will be abundant on the tree to be eaten by all the needy.  Further, this tree can bring happiness to all living beings.  It is the "panacea", the "Katpaham" (the Celestial Tree of the divine realm), that grants all wishes.  Therefore, the Grace of the Guru should be sustained and nourished and no hindrance or evil should be allowed to touch it. Amen.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
01.  The Nature of the "Lotus Pond" - Is An Example of "Man-God Happening"

Guru:

There is a pond.  It is at a lower level of earth where water flows into it.  People refer to such a collection of stagnant water as a low lying area.  When it rains the pond becomes filled with water. When the rains continue, dirt and mud too find their way into the pond.  Grass and lotus plants appear in this collection of mud.  People call it a lake when the water does not strain itself and there is plant life.  Some people bathe and others wash themselves in its waters saying,

          "Oh this lake is good."

The water is stagnant and the lotus plants grow in it.  It looks pretty.  Roots and flowers appear in the water.  The leaves are useful to man.  The lotus plants puts out shoots and bear flowers and leaves. 

People now call it a lotus pond.  Some fish appear on their own in the mud at the bottom of the pond. Some fish enter the pond with the flood waters while other fish fall into the pond with the rains from the sky.

The frogs see the pond from a place of elevation and jump into its waters. Waves form and break into all four shores and overflow to expand the pond.  More living creatures migrate into the pond to live there. 

People look at the pond and say,

          "Aha, this is a good lotus pond.  Let us drink its water and rest for awhile."

So they drink the water and relax for a while before going on their way.

One person says,

          "Yes, it is a good pond.  There is water.  There is an ache in my stomach.  I shall
          ease myself here and wash my hands and feet before I proceed."

Yet others say,

          "Oho, this was earlier a low lying piece of land.  Now it has become a large lotus
          pond.  This water is not so pure. All the rain water in the village collects here.
          Chee!  Chee!  This is not suitable for drinking."

They say this and go away.

Cattle, goats and cows too come to drink the water in the same pond and also to ease themselves, dropping their excreta and urine there.  People come there to pick the lotus leaves and others to gather the lotus flowers for the temple.  Some come to fish.  They all come, each for his individual purpose.

Each person completes the work for which he has come and goes away.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
2.  The Work of "Man-the-low" - Is Rejecting "God's Gifts", Including Oneself

However, the Manu-neesan (man-the-low, man-the-worldly) who sees the pond thinks,

          "What is this?  This is a muddy pond.  It contains the droppings of cattle and
          human excreta.  There are frogs and fishes.  It is not clean.  After all, this was
          only a piece of low lying land once.  There is excreta on one side.  It is
          dirty.Cows drink its water.  There are fish and crocodiles.  There is mud. There
          are lotus flowers.  This pond is impure"

They say this and that and talk about the impurities of the pond.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
3.  The Work of "Man-The-High" - Is Accepting "God's Gifts", Including Oneself

But if man uses his wisdom he will realize that where there is a pond, there is mud; where there is mud, there is the blue lotus flower; where there is the lotus, there is impurities; where there is impurity, there are many fish, frogs and similar creatures.

Where there is a pond, people will come there to fulfill their needs.  They will perform their duties and go away.

There is a repulsive impurity in the pond.  But the Angel Mikha'il (peace be upon Him) comes and cleans this impurity and deposits it with a collection of dirt.  The lotus eats this dirt and flourishes.  The flowers bloom into a large size.  The water in the pond becomes clear.  Many creatures live happily in the pond.  The sand on the shores is clean.  The water in the pond is so clear that one sees one's face in it like in a mirror. 

The man who does not cast adverse remarks on the nature of the pond and does his work and goes away is Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
4.  The Inner Meaning of Your Body - Is Why, Where & How "Man-God Happens"

Just like the secret in man's life (lies in the Qutbiyyat of God within you, within God within you, which is your 6th level of wisdom, the wisdom surrounding your soul, just waiting to awaken to the "Presence of God" and to the "Word of God" for your age and for your life, and if you like, then liberate your soul and take it back to God, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so "Your Oneness" will never leave you again, that is, an understanding of "Your Oneness" with God within you, and with what is "Within God" within you, and with what "God is doing" with what is "Within God" within you, which is revealing God to God within you for the benefit of all of the Creation of God within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you for the benefit of your brothers and sisters, so too) the inner meaning of his body lives here (in the example of the lotus pond).

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
5.  "Man Enters A Woman As A Man" - And "Comes Out As A Child", as "Rebirth"

Inside of the repulsive pit mixed with many types of dirt, man is formed into a dirty embryo and remains in this state for ten months. Venom is mixed with his flesh, skin and nerves.  At the tenth month he finds his exit through the entrance of the same dirty pit.  At the end of nine months, nine days, nine "nalihai", nine hours, nine minutes, and nine seconds he comes through the passage with fluid oozing out and with a melting heart of desire.

He falls out of the passage gazing at the dirt.  We see it as a baby.  On falling on earth, he gazes at the same repugnant spot which he had desired in his previous existence.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
6.  Man Comes Into The World Again As A Child - But "To Do What?"

He desires the place called "Mother".  She makes him the rightful owner of four things (hunger, illness, old age, and death). That is why there are some specific differences in man and woman and these differences are referred to as males and females.

The baby looks at the mother and fondles her breast.  It strokes it with its hands and gazes at it with its eyes. It cries and clutches it.  It is this that nourishes the baby and helps it to grow.  The baby falls down, cries and clutches the mother's bosom and sucks it with its mouth. 

The mother says,

          "The baby is crying in hunger and must be given its milk".

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
7.  "You Are My Mother But A Devil For This Earth" - So Who "Must Be
Destroyed" is Now "Mom and Dad" within you, who in truth is Now your "Body"
and your "Mind" within you, as "separate from", as "always changing", by revealing the Nur and the Qutb within God within you, as "One with", as "Never Changing"

As soon as the child is born, he observes that place and knows its inner meaning.  He utters,

          "Are you the mother of these four; hunger, disease, old age, and death?"

He grinds his gums saying,

          "Are you the woman who has shaken up the total universe knowing the
          philosophical meaning of these four and their result?"

          "Oh woman, do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings and
          play games before my very eyes - the six acts of lust, hatred, greed,
          miserliness, bigotry and envy, and the sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy
          the body, like the dog of desire and falsehood?"

          "You are the devil that develops my body and makes me wonder about like a dog
          on this earth. You are my mother but a devil for this earth. Oh you desirous
          mother, I shall attack you and break you.  I shall feed you with the heavenly
          words of  "Mother!  Father!".

          "I shall show you the Primordial One.  I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you,
          compressing them within three years".

So saying, he bites the cheek, kisses the nose, squeezes the breast, kicks the chest, pinches the ears, and does many other things, and completes sixty-one games within a span of three years.

He does this with no malice.  He speaks with the Aathi, The Primordial One and smiles with the mother.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
8.  The Truth of One Born As "Man-The-High" - Is "Man-God Happening"

It is this infant having completed the sixty-one sensual arts who is born as
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).  This gnani is called an "infant" by the world and the mother.  Reflect on this and be clarified.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
9.  The Primal One, The Aathi - Is The One Who Raises You, Not "Mom & Dad"

My brothers and sisters, Aathi, the Primordial One converses and laughs with
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), stays with him, plays with him, sings him lullaby, carries him, kisses him and embraces him till he is three years of age.  The ten evil qualities of intoxication, lust, theft, murder, falsehood, jealousy, prejudice, impatience, haste, and arrogance are torn away from him. 

Born as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), with the Aathi (The Primordial One), he completes the sixty-one (of the sixty-four) arts compressed within three years.  He grows happily to a youthful stage.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
10.  What Establishes "Your Presence" - as "separate from" God's Presence, is "Mom's Presence" as "separate from" you

Brother, it is because the ten evil qualities had been gotten rid of that God loves the
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), trusts him, and is close to him, despite the great task of the sixty-one arts he had completed earlier.

When Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) severs the ten evil qualities, God is to him as He is to the infant. He will kiss him, converse with him, help him, show him love and speak to him.  This child will be a true gnani.  These are the important signs of the body and its power.

Aathi Eeswaran (God) plays with the infant, carries him, gives him milk, sings him lullabies, wheels him around in a pram, feeds him with ambrosia and performs several other things that are beneficial to the child.  This babe and the true gnani are in the same state.  Please reflect carefully about this.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
11.  "Play It Again Sam" - "When the child grows up, he catches the same repulsive spot at the second opportunity.  It is called love, infatuation or lust"

When the child grows up, he catches the same repulsive spot at the second opportunity.  It is called love, infatuation or lust.  He handles this spot at the second opportunity and for this event the world holds celebrations and ceremonies.  The right of procreation in this hell-house of the world is obtained with pride.  In this state of pride, some spots that are to be concealed are kept exposed.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
12.  You Learning "How To Do It Correctly" Is "What Matters" - Not Just "You Doing It", whether it be prayer, worship, duty, learning, work or play, or anything else, including "Making Love"

[Note: There is No Original Text for this Topic, for Topic 12, but this Topic appeared to become a very important Topic in the development of this "Outline and Topic Review Version" of Chapter 29, and is Now shared with you at this time, if you like.  All other Topics, other than Topic 12, have Original Text associated with them.  Thank you. Enjoy. Al-hamdu lillah. Allahu Akbar. Amen - My love you Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us). Amen]

13.  Understanding The "Two Great Battles of Your Life" - And "How They Are Won?", and "By Whom?", and "Where?", and Most Importantly, "Why?"

But brother, born as human and after having successfully completed the sixty-one sexual arts and reached their finality, he is oblivious to such temptation (at the age of 3 years old).  It is he who is born as (a human), as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) and completes sixty-one of the sixty-four arts in this worldly life, until (or by the time) he is three years of age.  At this stage he is exempted from the other arts (from the last 3 of the sixty-four arts). 

The child thereafter (until he grows up) becomes oblivious to these sexual arts.  The human mother (the mother of the human child) does not recognize the sixty-one arts (that the human child plays out with her) and thinks the child is behaving innocently.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
14.  "The Second Great Battle of Your Life" - is a battle that is Now facing all of My Children, and a battle that can only be won by "The One", by God, by you finding and falling into "The One", first on the "outside" of you and then within you, if you like

This babe (or human child) will be a great gnani (by the age of 3 years old).  The Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) sees his greatness and determination.  He plays and laughs with the babe saying,

          "Oh great gnani, you have successfully conquered and discarded the sixty-one
          arts".

          "When you reach the age of twenty-one years, the three arts that are unknown to
          you will become four types of women.  They will turn out to be devils who will
          destroy you.  They will show love to your face but cause injury to your heart.
          They will show love that will melt you and lust that will blind your eye.  The ghost
          whom you denounced (earlier) will (then) squeeze your throat".

          "The three arts unknown to you earlier, "love, infatuation, and lust", will join with
          the sixty-one arts already conquered by you to follow you when you are
          twenty-one years of age.  These three arts and the sixty-one will make up the
          sixty-four sensual arts.  The three arts are the four types of women.  Your
          youthful age will try to turn you into a dog."

[Note: To read an on-line copy of Chapter 1, "Signs of Spiritual Significance - the four types of wives", in the book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom", which provides a beautiful explanation and description of these "Four Types of Women", of these "Four Destructive Women", that you have Now, or soon will, either become or marry, depending if you are a woman or a men, please Click HERE (www.ThePearlOf
WisdomChap01.homestead.com), if you like, for the Choice is yours, not God's, that is, the Choice to accept and use what God is "Now Giving You", is most certainly your Choice, not God's, and certainly not the Choice of this child.  Thank you.  Enjoy. 
Al-hamdu lillah. Allahu Akbar. Amen

          "O Precious Son, if you escape from this and become a Manu-eesan
          (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), the Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) will befriend
          you.  The meaning of this cannot be easily told in full."

          "But (if not, if you fail to do this in your lifetime, that is, if you fail to win this
          "Second Great Battle of Your Life", or at least to truly Start to do this, as "One
          with" God, first on the "outside" of you, and then within you, in your lifetime, that
          is, before you die to the flesh, and before "The Beast" emerges out of at least
          one of My Children, and drags you yelling and screaming off to hell with you,
          then), the enormous "Debt of Karmic Births" will send you into three and
          a half crores of births, (that is, into 105 million rebirths, with you ending as
          worm in hell with only one level of consciousness, or feeling)"

(Bawa.  So in the End, you take on an eternal life within you as "separate from" God within you, not because of God's Judgment, as the world believes, but rather, because that is "Exactly what you want", for in truth "The Justice of God is that whatever you intend is what you will receive", and in this way, "Your own life answers the question, "What do you want for eternity", for in truth what you End up with at the End, at the End of this brief stay in this earth world within you, is "Exactly what you want", for in truth "Everyone gets exactly what they want". Such is the true nature of God, of your Creator, and of you, as His Children, "The house you build is the house you get", and the "Crop you grow is the crop you harvest".  Amen.  So, the Choice is truly ours, not God's)

(Bawa.  So please Choose wisely, not like a fool.  For Bawa said that in the End, He will address each of His Children by either one of these two Names, that is, as either a "Wise Child", or as a "Fool".   Please be "My Wise Children".  Amen)

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
15.  The Nature of The "One True Gnani" - is "Oneness with", rather than "separation from", and it is Only One who has truly joined in partnership with God to conquer the "Enormous Karmic Debt of Birth", which in truth is "Your Current Life" of "separation from", that is the "One True Gnani"

          "It is those who conquer this enormous debt of birth who are the true
          gnanis, (that is, it is Only One who falls into the One, first on the "outside" of
          you, and then within you, who is "One True Gnani", who truly conquers this
          enormous debt of birth, that is, who truly conquers this enormous debt of
          "separation from" that in truth is your "false birth", both within you and for a little
          while on the "outside" of you)"

(Bawa.  That is, this "false birth" of "separation from" Now in your "Room", or in your heart or mind within you, that is covering God within you, that in truth is covering your "True Birth" of "Oneness with", that is still within God within you, in "Safe Keeping" by God within you, within "God's Bank" within you, allowing One, if you like, if you truly turn back to God within you, and you truly away from "you" on the "outside" of you, to again take on your "True Birth" within God within you, that in truth is "Your Oneness With" God within you, that is, to again stand in "God's Presence" within you and hear "God Speak" from within God within you, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so it will never leave you again)

(Bawa.  That is, to Truly Understand who "You Already Are", which is "God's Presence", and "God's Intention", and "God's Story", in the process, of one leaving and the other coming forward, that is, through the Contrast created by God of You as "One with" coming back into your "Room", or you heart or mind, and at the very same time by "you" as "separate from" leaving your "Room", or your heart or mind, for in truth "There is No True Birth, without a True Death", and "You cannot truly put something old down, unless you are truly picking something New Up)

(Bawa.  That is, this is the "One True Gnani", One in whom your "Original True Birth", which is "Your Oneness" again comes into your "Room", or heart or mind, from within God within you, from within "God's Bank" within you, and Starts To Rule over Everything within that "Room", Passing Judgment upon Everything in that "Room", and offering Everything Salvation, if they like, that is, to fall back into God, from which they came, as the Understanding of God, as the Essence of Creation, or to return to the original place that of their birth, as the form or sifat of their birth, that is, to earth, fire, water, air, or ether, with all of this happening, first on the "outside" of you and then within you, at your repeated request)

(Bawa.  That is, with each breath, look, smell, sound, taste, word, and thought of your life, in order to again fill your "Room", to fill your heart or mind, with "Who In Truth You Already Are", which is the "Presence of God", and the "Intention of God", and the "Story" of God, the Story of God, all of which is just waiting for God within you to again tell and bring to Completed by God within you, but this time within your "Room", or heart or mind.  And in this way, this is the True Gnani, which One who is "No longer in your Room", as "separate from", so "God can be in your Room", as "One with", moving forward God's Story, causing Everything that has Now come into you, that is Now within your "Room", Everything that has Now filled your "Room", or heart or mind, in your ignorance and in your arrogance about your ignorance, and that Now Rules over you, as the 9 Openings of your Elemental Body, to join in the telling and bringing to Completion of God's Story, but this time within you, within your Room)

(Bawa.  And in this way, transforming Everything that has Now taken over and filled your Room, that has filled the "Handful of earth" that was Adam (peace be upon Him) within you, that God originally placed within you, and has Now become full of Everything discarded by God, in order to become God within you, into what God Originally Intended for Adam (peace be upon Him) within you, which is the "Palace of the soul", which is the House of wisdom, is the House of Qutb Muhaiyaddeen Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani (may God be pleased with Him), into the "Ship of the Qutb", and into the 11 Weapons of the Qutb, if you like, for the Choice is yours, not God, that is, the Choice to let this happen within you, that is, to let "God Again Happen", but this time within you, this time within your Room, or not.  Please let this happen within you, for in truth this, and only this, is why God created all of My Children, in partnership with Me, and then gave them to Me, for Me to raise You as Him, and return You to Him, if you like, if you will only join with Me in this "Grand Endeavor", while you still can. Amen. Ok?)

          (Again), "It is those who conquer this enormous debt of birth (this "false
          birth" of "separation from" that Now fills your "Room", or heart or mind) who are
          the True Gnanis, (who in truth "Is the One" who again becomes your "True
          Birth", the "One True Birth" of all of My Children, the "One True Birth" of "Your
          Oneness", all of which is no longer within your "Room", or heart or mind, but in
          truth is still within you, as what is "Within God" within you, which in truth is
          "God's Bank" within you, within a tiny piece of flesh within you no bigger than a
          atom, just waiting for your to claim, as "Your Crop", as "Your Property", as "Your
          Bank", just waiting for you to withdraw from, if you like, but which never
          diminishes, no matter how much you take, all of which is just waiting for you to
          Use to Rule Over what is Now Ruling Over You within your "Room")"

(Bawa.  All of which is Now "God's Final Gift" for your age and for your life, all of which is How God Has Now Saved You, if you like, all of which in truth is Now "Our" dearest loving Son, and your dearest loving brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), first on the "outside" of you, as "God's Presence", as "God's Intention", as "God's Story" for your age and for your life, and then within you, as the Understanding of Creation, as the Essence of God's Creation, which in truth is the Qutbiyyat of God, the Grace of the Dhat, your 6th level of wisdom, and within that, as the Understanding of God, which in the Nur Muhammad or Light of your wisdom, as the Dhat of God, as the Essence of God, as "God's Bank")

(Bawa.  And within that as "God's Prayer", as the "Prayer of the One to the One who Is", and within that, as the Understanding of the Din or Deen, of the "Power Within The Essence of Everything", which is Allah Muhammad, as the Effulgence of God, as "True Man's Bank" within "God's Bank", and "True Man's Prayer" within "God's Prayer", the "Prayer of the One" within the "Prayer of the One to the One who Is", allowing God to withdraw from that Bank, which also never diminishes no matter how much is taken, in order to answer God's Question of God, in Anathi, in the time of darkness or Lack of Understanding, the Question, "Who am I?", So in the End, at the End of this last and final telling of God's Story, with Now all 9 Names of Muhammad
having been revealed and Understood, "No Child Is Left Behind")

(Bawa.  So in the End, there is nothing still "Separating God From God".  Please do it like this, My Dearest Loving Children, while you still can.  Please join with God to get to God, and let Everything else flow back into the "Ocean of Ilm", from which it all came, with you again becoming the Ocean, with you no longer existing as "separate from" the Ocean, as Rain, with you having Completed your duty, with "you" letting You as the Grace of God flow back into God, from which Everything has come. Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rabil Alameen. Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rahman Alameen.  Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rahim Alameen. Al-hamdu lillah. Allahu Akbar. Amen. Ok?)

(Bawa.  So My Dearest Loving Children)

It is those who conquer this enormous debt of birth who are the True Gnanis. You should know this.  But Son, this is very rare in the world.  These True Gnanis will be like children.  They will conceal themselves.  They will know themselves.  They will worship the Lone God.  They will forget the world and proceed.  They will conquer death.  They will be in seclusion and hiding.  They will not work for glory and fame.  They will not display themselves.  They will possess many virtues, good conduct and behavior.  They will be at prayer and worship the Lone God.  They will be aloof.

Look for a Guru of this high state.  Do selfless service to Him and thereby acquire great benefit and reach the glorious feet of the Master (God).  This is the
Manu-eesan's (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) great acquisition of the unattainable and rare gift of birth, (of "Your True Birth" but this time within you, and this time with an Understanding of "Your True Birth", of "Your Oneness", this time with an Understanding of "Your Oneness", so it will never leave you again. Amen. Ok?)

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
16.  The Value of the "One True Gnani" - is the "One True Gnani" Himself, not what He can do for you, not what you can get from Him, that is, for your life of "separation from" Him, for your "Current Life" of "separation from" the "One True Gnani", that is, the value of the "One True Gnani" is not what He can give you as "separate from" Himself

When your perform your many rare duties to the "True Guru", and expect no reward, your Guru Consciousness will develop and the Grace of the Guru too will grow, (that is, the "Presence of God" and the "Word of God" coming from the "One True Guru", from the "Word of God Made Flesh" for your age and for your life, will awaken the "One True Guru" within you, that is, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) on the "outside" of you will awaken Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) within you, all of which in truth is the wisdom surrounding your soul, all of which in truth is your 6th level of wisdom, all of which in truth is the Qutbiyyat of God, which in truth is the "Presence of God", the "Word of God" for your age and life, and within Him will be your 7th level of wisdom, which is the light of your wisdom, the Nur Muhammad, which is "God's Bank")

(Bawa.  And within that is "God's Prayer", within God within you, that is, as the "Shepherd and The Tree", as beautifully explained in Chapter 2, with the same name, in the beautiful book of wisdom, "A Mystical Journey" (www.AMysticalJourney.
homestead.com), that is, as the "Tree in the Desert" and the "Lotus Pond", as beautifully explained in Chapter 28, and Chapter 29, with the same names, in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom" (www.ThePearlOfWisdom.
homestead.com)

(Bawa.  That is, as the Nur and the Qutb, or the 25th and the 24 letters of the Kalimah that naturally emerge out of the 25 letters, out of "The Shadow", when you let the "One True Guru" reason over your fate, first on the "outside" of you and then within you.  That is, out of the "Shadow", which in truth is your current state, that is, out of the 25 letters, of the 28 letters that from the Mystical Body of Man, as beautifully explained as Chapter 30, "The Mystical Meaning of Man's Body", and as Chapter 31, "The Twenty Eight Arabic Alphabets In Man's Body", in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom".  All of which in truth is True Prayer, the "Prayer of the One to the One Who Is", if you like)

(Bawa.  For the Choice is yours, not God's, that is, the Choice to use your life in this way, or not, that is, to allow God to finish telling and bringing to Completion His Story Again, but this time within you, that is, within your "Room", or heart or mind, when "you" as "separate from" are no longer in "Your Room", allowing "You" as "One with" to re-enter, and tell and bring to Completion "Your Story", the Story of the "Oneness of God and True Man", for the benefit of all of the Creation of God, within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you, for the benefit of your brothers and sisters, as this child has Now learned to do, and as you too can Now learn to do, if you like. Amen. Ok?).

(Bawa.  So My Dearest Loving Children),

When you perform your many rare duties to the "True Guru", and expect no reward, your Guru Consciousness will develop and the Grace of the Guru too will grow.  Through the Grace of the "One True Guru", the Disciple will develop.  He will grow in wisdom and his love for the Aathi (The Primal One) will increase.  His sins will be thereby erased, and this will lead to the disappearance of fever, disease, and hatred.

All this will make the earth pleased and the "Justice of the King" will be enhanced.  Kindness and the love of fellow beings will grow.  The blessings of the Celestial Beings will be showered.  Charity will develop and patience will increase.  Poverty will cease to exist.  Guru Grace will spring forth.  The massive "Debt of Birth" will be erased due to this Grace.  Truth will grow.  The generous Celestial Beings will be alone with you offering you assistance.

                                                                      - go to "Chapter 29 Outline"
17.  The Tree That Is "Now Growing" In The "West" - will eventually fall into the "East", that is, the "Sun that is Now Rising in the West will eventually Set in the East", all of which in truth is Now the life and teaching of My Children, of the
Children of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
(may God be pleased with Us, and with Him), if you like

But Son, at this point I must take you back to the planting of the tree in the desert, and its greatness.  This tree is the excellent and virtuous "Guru Leader".  All the words spoken Now are about this "Truthful Guru".  Reflect on this and do your service to Him wisely and your wants will be removed. You must perform selfless service towards Him with "One Mind".  Accordingly, the tree of "Guru's Grace" will grow to tower sky high.

Many poisonous winds will attack this tree.  The "Guru's Grace" will receive the poisonous wind and send in its place a good wind that will be of benefit to the country. Likewise, My Son, if the services of a "True Guru" are available in a country, good will accrue and pave the way for the prosperity of that country. 

You must look for such a "Tree" and discover "It".  You cannot easily find this tree in any tree-family.  You should not cast aspersions and label the tree as good or bad as the words occur to your tongue.

Brother, when such a tree grows in a desert, people want to selfishly and greedily enjoy it for themselves, and prevent its benefit spreading to others.  Contrary to this conception, it is our duty to protect this tree in the desert as we protect a fruit-bearing tree in our garden in the country. 

We must share its benefits with all mankind.  If we thus water this tree with the waters of our love, the fruits of love will be abundant on the tree to be eaten by all the needy.  Further, this tree can bring happiness to all living beings.  It is the "panacea", the "Katpaham" (the Celestial Tree of the divine realm), that grants all wishes.  Therefore, the Grace of the Guru should be sustained and nourished and no hindrance or evil should be allowed to touch it. Amen.

1.  The Nature of the Lotus Pond - is like a finger on the "outside" of you,
pointing to the Reality and Truth of God "inside" of you, and "How It Happens" within you, that is, how the Station of Man-God/God-Man happens within God within you,
through
the direct Intervention of God in your life, if you like, that is, if you will only let Him, if you will only truly join in partnership with God, First on the "outside" of you,
and then within you, and Now for your age and for your life this direct Intervention of God in your life is Now Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), First on the "outside" of you and then within you, if you like. Amen. Ok?

                                                                      - go to Next Page of "Initial Review"
2.  The Work of "Man-the-low" - is to find fault with everything of God's Creation, including the lotus pond, which in truth is yourself, mistakenly seeing it all as impure and of no value, mistakenly seeing it all as "separate from" yourself, mistakenly seeing all of it as both "outside" of yourself, and as separate from" yourself, that is, mistakenly seeing all of it as "other people", and as "other things", all of which in truth is "Just Not True".  That is, mistakenly seeing God and all of the Creation of God as "separate from" yourself, and not as who "You Already Are", not as the "Seed of God" buried within the Creation of God just waiting to germinate, not as God just waiting "To Happening" within the Creation of God, within God within you, for the benefit of all of the Creation of God within you, and within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you, for the benefit of all your brothers and sisters, as this child has Now learned to do. All of which in truth is just waiting to happen within you, Quite Naturally, when you truly realize, understand, accept, and join with the Truth of yourself and with the Truth of God within you, that in truth
"Man and God are One", and the truth that Man and what God is Now "One
with", are also "One", all of which in truth is Again "God Happening" within the
Creation of God, and within that, is Again "True Man Happening" within "God
Happening" within the Creation of God, as the Story of the "Oneness of God and
True Man", within God within you, if you like, but this time within you, if you like.

                                                                      - go to Next Page of "Initial Review
3.  The Work of "Man-The-High" - is to see the "Lotus Pond" as you see everything in God's Creation, as truly a "Gift from God" So Understanding can occur, an Understanding of who "You Already Are", that is, to see the "Lotus Pond" which in truth is yourself, as a "Gift from God" which is just waiting to give up its secrets for the benefit of all of the Creation of God, within God within you, as God tells and brings to Completion His Story, the Story of the "Oneness of God and True Man", within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you, for the benefit of all of your brothers and sisters, if you like, as this child has Now learned to do. Amen. Ok?
4.  The Inner Meaning of Your Body - lies in the Nature of the Lotus Pond, just
like the Secret in Man's Life lies in the Nature of the Qutbiyyat of God, as your
6th level of wisdom, as the wisdom surrounding your soul, just waiting to awaken
and liberate your soul and take it back to God, but this time with an
understanding of "Your Oneness", So it will never leave You again.
5.  Man Enters A Woman As A Man - and comes out again as a child, as
"Rebirth", but this time, "To do what?". That is, to either transcend the "place
of birth" that is your Mother, allowing God to finish what God has already started
within you, a very, very long time ago, or to again return to the "place of birth"
and become subject to 105 million rebirths, ending as a worm in hell with only
one level of consciousness, or feeling. That is, in the End, to either receive an
eternal life within you as "separate from" God within you, if you like, or to let
God finish telling and bringing to Completion His Story, if you like.

6.  Man Keeps Coming Into The World Again As A Child - over and over again,
but "To Do What?", to do what with the "Place of birth" that keeps him coming
out of the "Place of birth", that is, to do what with "Mom" or "Wife" or Woman",
with what keeps pulling man back to the "Place of birth", causing him to continue
coming into the world, over and over again, not allowing him to complete what
he came here to do, which is to Understand who "You already are", by
Understanding the meaning of the "Place of birth", which is "Rebirth"
7.  "You Are My Mother But A Devil For This Earth" - "Oh woman, are you the woman who has shaken up the total universe knowing the philosophical meaning of these four & their result, of hunger, illness, old age, and death?. Oh woman, do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings and play games before my very eyes - the six acts of lust, hatred, greed, miserliness, bigotry and envy, and the
sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy the body, like the dog of desire and
falsehood? You are the devil that develops my body and makes me wonder
about like a dog on this earth. You are my mother but a devil for this earth. Oh
you desirous mother, I shall attack you and break you. I shall feed you with the
heavenly words of "Mother! Father!". I shall show you the Primordial One. I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you, compressing them within three years"

8.  The Truth of One Born As "Man-The-High" - Is "Man-God Happening", which
is the truth and reality of each of you, of each of My Children, if you like, by you first allowing the "Aathi and the Qutbiyyat" to Happen, within God within you,
that is, by you first allowing the Nur and the Qutb to emerge out of the Shadow,
that is, by you first allowing the 25th letter which is the Nur, and the 24 letters of
the Kalimah which is the Qutb, to emerge out of the 25 letters, which is "The
Shadow", all of which is Now you, all of which is Now your life of darkness and
evil, all of which is Now your illusory life "outside" of you and the "very real but
false lives" of darkness and evil within you, that you allowed to grow within you,
like weeds in God's Flower Garden, that Now rule over you as the 9 Opening
of your elemental body, with "God's Permission", until you "See God and Steady
God" within you, allow God to "Cure Himself of you", of "you" living your current
life on the illusory "outside" of you, as if you are "separate from" God within you,
as if you are "separate from" each other, and as if you are "separate from" the
Creation of God within God within you, all of which is "Just Not True"

                                                                      - go to Next Page of "Initial Review"
9.  The Primal One, The Aathi, Is The One Who Raises You - who gives birth to and then raises Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), Not "Mom" and Not "Dad".  For in truth "Mom and Dad" only give birth to and then raise
Manu-neesan (man-the-low, man-the-worldly), for profit, for "Their Profit", not Yours, by taking away your "True Life", which is the pure life of your soul, and giving you their "false life", which is the life of darkness and evil of satan, of what God discarded, all of which in truth is your body and mind, with your "Mom" raising your body, and your "Dad" raising your mind, that is, with your "Mom" giving birth to, raising, and teaching you about the body, bringing your body to the state of the "Four Destructive Woman", both within you and for a little while on the "outside" of you, the "Four Destructive Woman" who by the age of 24 you either marry or become, depending if you are a male or a female, and with "Dad" giving birth to and raising your mind, teaching you about the world, bringing your mind to the state of the "Four False Gurus", both within you and for a little while on the "outside" of you, the "Four False Gurus" who by the age of 36 you either become or marry, again depending if you are a male or a female. 
And Now, if you like, God will Intervene Again in your life, transforming the 4 false Gurus into the 1 True Guru, First on the "outside" of you and then within you, transforming the 4 destructive wives into the 1 True Wife, First on the "outside" of you
and then
within you, marrying the 1 True Wife to the soul, transforming your "Room", or Heart or Mind of hell, into the "Palace of the soul", into the "House of wisdom", into the House of Qutb Muhaiyaddeen Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), allowing the soul to find and merge with God, if you like.

10.  What Establishes You  Firmly In "Your Presence" - as "separate from"
God, is "Mom's Presence" as "separate from" you, that is, what causes you to fall completely out of "God's Presence", when you come into the world, is the "Presence of your Mother", that is, is the "Presence of Mom", which in truth are the 10 deadly sins, are the 10 evil qualities of your Mother, are 61 of the 64 sensual arts, all of which in truth is what "Defines Mom" when you first meet her upon coming into the world.
11.  "Play It Again Sam" - "When the child grows up, he catches the same repulsive spot at the second opportunityIt is called love, infatuation or lust.  He handles this spot at the second opportunity and for this event the world holds celebrations and ceremonies.  The right of procreation in this hell-house of the world is obtained with pride.  In this state of pride, some spots that are to be concealed are kept exposed", for in truth as Bawa teaches you, "When marriage begins satan begins".  In this way, even though in your first birth, all of My Children were born as human, all of My Children were first born in the state of the Qutbiyyat of God, with the 6th level of wisdom, all of you have Now, or will when you grow up, "Catch the same repulsive spot at the second opportunity".  All of which is "How God Set It Up", for it is not to be born as human that is important, or to overcome 61 of the 64 sexual arts by the age of 3 years old that is important, but rather it is to learn "How To Do It", that is, to learn "How To Now Become Truly Successful" in your lifetime, Now in partnership with God, first on the "outside" of you and then within you, as this child has Now learned to do.

12.  You Learning "How To Do It Correctly" Is "What Matters" - Not Just "You Doing It", no matter what you are doing, whether it be prayer, worship, duty, learning, work or play, or anything else, including "Making Love", for in truth "Who You Do It With", not just "What you do", has the "Greatest consequence" for your life, and for all other lives, as beautifully explained in this book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom", that is, whether you are "Doing It" with your wisdom, which leads to one result, or with your mind and desire, which leads to an entirely different result   This is what Now matters in your life, in all life, you leaning "How to do it Correctly ", how to do Everything Correctly, that is, "To Do It" as "One with" God, first on the "outside" of you and then within you, to ensure the Only "Best Possible Outcome" of "Everything You Do", or "To Do It" as "separate from" God, which will guarantee the "worst possible outcome" of "everything you do".  It is just this simple.

13.  Understanding The "Two Great Battles of Your Life" - And "How They Are Won?", and "By Whom?", and "Where?", and Most Importantly, "Why?". With the "First Great Battle of Your Life" having already been fought and won within you, within God within you, which is why you are Now living within God within you, and for a little while you are still living on the illusory "outside" of you, so Now the "Second Great Battle of Your Life" can now be fought and also won, if you like, for the Choice is yours, not God.  That is, with the "First Great Battle of Your Life" having already been fought and won, both within you and for a little while on the "outside" of you, when the Qutbiyyat of God within you came into the world with "The Aathi", as your first birth, as beautifully explained in this beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom", that is, in order to "Win Over Mom".  Setting the stage Now for the "Second Great Battle of Your Life", with the Qutbiyyat of God within you going to sleep and dreaming of "you", that is, letting "you" as "separate from" grow from within the darkness and evil within you, within your "room" or heart or mind, and for a little while to grow on the illusory "outside" of you.  And in this way, and only in this way, preparing everything necessary for the "Second Great Battle of Your Life" to Now occur, if you like, so God can "Get On With" what God is doing within you, which is God revealing God to God within you, for the benefit of all of the Creation of God within God within you, and for a little while for the benefit of your brothers & sisters, as this child has Now learned to do, and which you can Now learn to do, if you like

14.  "The Second Great Battle of Your Life" - And "How It Is Won?", and "By Whom?", and "Where?", and Most Importantly, "Why?", a battle that is Now facing all of My Children, and a battle that can only be won by "The One", by God, by you finding and falling into "The One", first on the "outside" of you, and then within you, that is, falling into God for your age and for your life, first on the "outside" of you
and then within you, if you like, which in truth is Now Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), first on the "outside" of you and then within you.  That is, a Battle that cannot be won by you alone, that cannot be won by any of My Children who continue to act as if they are "separate from", that refuse to give up the "dream" of you for the Reality of You, that is, that refuse to give up the "dream of you as "separate from", for the "Reality" of You as "One with".  That refuse to give up the dream of you which in truth is Now the "outside" of you, but which in truth is Now the "very real but false" inside" of you, but which in truth is Now the "outside" of God within you, as Now what God has discarded from "Within Himself", from within the "Reality and Truth" of You, in order to become God within you, all of which in truth is Now the current state of all of My Children.

Bawa.  Here is an On-line copy of the E-mail Version of a "Beautiful Review" of Chapter 29, "The Lotus Pond" (www.SpiritualBook002Chap29.homestead.com), in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom" (www.ThePearlOfWisdom.
homestead.com), by His Holiness, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), for your reading and hopefully for your sharing enjoyment. Amen. Ok?

Bawa.  A beautiful Spiritual Letter to each of My Children, who in truth is My dearest loving Son or Daughter Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be please with Him, and with Us), if you like, that is, if you look through the eyes of your Shaikh, of Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him), which are the 99 wilayats or powers of God within you, that is, are the 99 beautiful names of God in the Asma'el Husna within you, which in truth are the windows of your heart, if you like, through which everything in the 18,000 Universes within you can Now be seen, and understood, again, if you like, but this time within you, for in truth the Choice is yours, not God's. That is, the Choice of whether any of "The Truth and Reality of You" happens within you, or not, in your lifetime. Amen.

Bawa.  And in this way, a beautiful Spiritual Letter from God within My Children to God within My Children, which in truth is everyone living in your age, if you like, that is, if your true intention for the life within you, that is, for your soul life, for your 6th life, for your Light Life within you, which is Jesus (peace be upon Him) within you, is to again become "One with" God within you, or at least to truly Start to, in partnership with God within you, before you die to the flesh.

Bawa.  And in this way, and only in this way, you can truly avoid the consequences of your current life of "selfishness" in the world, of "separation from", all of which in truth is an eternal life of hell within you, for "hell is simply the realization that you have "separated yourself" from God within you", all of which can only be avoided in your lifetime if you are wise, that is, if you wise up before it is too late, that is, if you Start to live as "One with" God, if you Start to demonstrate to God the True Disciple, as this child learned to do when Bawa was still living in the world, First on the "outside" of you and then within you, using Now Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) as your Father, your Shaikh, and your Guru,
First
on the "outside" of you and then within you.

Bawa.  So in the End you don't get an eternal life within you as "separate from" God within you, which in truth is the true result of your current state, you don't get some illusory heaven on another "outside" of you, as My Children still mistakenly believe. 
But instead,
Now you again become "One with" God, First on the "outside" of you
and then
within you, but this time with you doing it using Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) as your Father, your Shaikh, and your Guru, First on the "outside" of you and then within you, but this time for eternity, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so it will never leave you again. Amen.

Bawa.  And in this way, "A True Love Letter" to "Our" dearest loving Son and
Daughter Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us) living at the Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Fellowship, both within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you, as the true "Gift of God" now for your age, and for your life, if you like, coming Now to you and My Children through the heart of "Our" dearest loving Son, and your dearest loving brother Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us), if you like, in whom "We are well pleased". Amen.

"Longer Title"
of Spiritual Letter 130

"Oh woman,
are you the woman
who has shaken up the total universe
knowing the philosophical meaning of these four & their result,
of hunger, illness, old age, and death?
Oh woman,
do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings
and play games before my very eyes,
the six acts of lust, hatred, greed, miserliness, bigotry and envy,
and the sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy the body,
like the dog of desire and falsehood? 
O woman,
you are the devil that develops my body
and makes me wonder about like a dog on this earth.
You are my mother but a devil for this earth.
Oh you desirous mother,
I shall attack you and break you.
I shall feed you with the heavenly words of "Mother!  Father!". 
I shall show you the Primordial One. 
I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you,
compressing them within three years"
- M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.).
From Chapter 29, "The Lotus Pond", Page 100,
in the book, "The Pearl of Wisdom". "

Bawa.  And a beautiful Spiritual Letter which "We" have given the following
"Expanded Title" (at least in concept, if not just in words), if you like,

Expanded Title
of Spiritual Letter 130

"Join As "One With" Us On The "Outside" of You
To Become "One With" Us Within You,
In Order To Truly Become "One With" God Within You,
In Order To
Truly Understand Your Current State or Station
That In Truth
"All that you see is a dream,
All that you do is just a thought within that dream,
All that you appear as is hidden"
For in truth,
"Life is a feast of the world,
Its Medicine is a time after a time",
For in truth,
Its Medicine is the Remembrance of God,
Before you "Say or Do or Write" anything,
As this child has Now learned to do,
Realizing that in truth,
"Whether or not you are alive in the next moment
Is God's will, not yours",
Realizing that in truth,
"Man is God in the forgetting of himself,
And,
"The Understanding of Today
Becomes the Enemy of Tomorrow",
And,
"Nothing will ever leave you until it is Understood",
And,
True Understanding only occurs through Contrast,
The contrast of your Iman and your fate,
The Contrast
Of your absolute faith, certitude, and determination in God,
and your fate, which is your current life in the world,
And,
"Life is the Victory of your Wisdom
Reasoning over your fate",
And,
"The Justice of God is that
Whatever you intend is what you will receive",
And,
"The more you know about God
The further away from you God moves",
And,
"You must use God to get to God,
Not what God has discarded",
And,
"My Love You".
Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rabil Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Ruler of the Universes)
Amen, Amen, Amen Ya Rahman Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Most Merciful One)
Amen, Amen, Ya Rahim Alameen,
(So be it, So be it, So Be it O Most Compassionate One)
Al-hamdu lillah.  Allahu Akbar. Amen.
(All praise and praising be to God, and to God alone,
Only God is Great. Amen)

Bawa.  A Spiritual Letter from God within us all, to the Children of God for this age, which continues to "outline" for you what most of My Children are currently doing wrong, and how to correct their mistake using My Children, that is, using Those of
My Children
who have truly learned from "Us" how to do it right, so in the end, there will be "No Child Left Behind" within you, that is, there will be nothing still "separating God" from God within you.

Bawa.  May God all the peace, the beneficence, and the blessing of God be upon all
of My Children.  May God help all of My Children.  May God be pleased with all of
My Children
.  Amen.

Bawa. My love you - Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us). Amen.

2.  "Original Version" of Chapter 29 -  of "The Lotus Pond", (www.Spiritual
Book002Chap29.homestead.com) in the beautiful book of wisdom, "The Pearl of Wisdom", (www.ThePearlOfWisdom.homestead.com) by His Holiness, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us).  Amen

Guru:

There is a pond.  It is at a lower level of earth where water flows into it.  People refer to such a collection of stagnant water as a low lying area.  When it rains the pond becomes filled with water. When the rains continue, dirt and mud too find their way into the pond.  Grass and lotus plants appear in this collection of mud.  People call it a lake when the water does not strain itself and there is plant life.  Some people bathe and others wash themselves in its waters saying,

          "Oh this lake is good."

The water is stagnant and the lotus plants grow in it.  It looks pretty.  Roots and flowers appear in the water.  The leaves are useful to man.  The lotus plants puts out shoots and bear flowers and leaves. 

People now call it a lotus pond.  Some fish appear on their own in the mud at the bottom of the pond. Some fish enter the pond with the flood waters while other fish fall into the pond with the rains from the sky.

The frogs see the pond from a place of elevation and jump into its waters. Waves form and break into all four shores and overflow to expand the pond.  More living creatures migrate into the pond to live there. 

People look at the pond and say,

          "Aha, this is a good lotus pond.  Let us drink its water and rest for a while."

So they drink the water and relax for a while before going on their way.

One person says,

          "Yes, it is a good pond.  There is water.  There is an ache in my stomach.  I shall           ease myself here and wash my hands and feet before I proceed."

Yet others say,

          "Oho, this was earlier a low lying piece of land.  Now it has become a large
          lotus pond.  This water is not so pure. All the rain water in the village collects
          here. Chee!  Chee!  This is not suitable for drinking."

They say this and go away.

Cattle, goats and cows too come to drink the water in the same pond and also to ease themselves, dropping their excreta and urine there.  People come there to pick the lotus leaves and others to gather the lotus flowers for the temple.  Some come to fish.  They all come, each for his individual purpose.

Each person completes the work for which he has come and goes away.

However, the Manu-neesan (man-the-low, man-the-worldly) who sees the pond thinks,

          "What is this?  This is a muddy pond.  It contains the droppings of cattle and
          human excreta.  There are frogs and fishes.  It is not clean.  After all, this was
          only a piece of low lying land once.  There is excreta on one side.  It is dirty.
          Cows drink its water.  There are fish and crocodiles.  There is mud. There are
          lotus flowers.  This pond is impure"

They say this and that and talk about the impurities of the pond.

But if man uses his wisdom (as Manu-eesan or Man-The High, Man-The-Divine) he will realize that where there is a pond, there is mud; where there is mud, there is the blue lotus flower; where there is the lotus, there is impurities; where there is impurity, there are many fish, frogs and similar creatures.

Where there is a pond, people will come there to fulfill their needs.  They will perform their duties and go away.

There is a repulsive impurity in the pond.  But the Angel Mikha'il (peace be upon Him) comes and cleans this impurity and deposits it with a collection of dirt.  The lotus eats this dirt and flourishes.  The flowers bloom into a large size.  The water in the pond becomes clear.  Many creatures live happily in the pond.  The sand on the shores is clean.  The water in the pond is so clear that one sees one's face in it like in a mirror. 

The man who does not cast adverse remarks on the nature of the pond and does his work and goes away is Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).

Just like the secret in man's life (lies in the Qutbiyyat of God within you, within God within you, which is your 6th level of wisdom, which is the wisdom surrounding your soul, just waiting to awaken to the "Presence of God" and to the "Word of God" for your age and for your life, and if you like, then liberate your soul and take it back to God, but this time with an understanding of "Your Oneness", so "Your Oneness" will never leave you again, that is, an understanding of "Your Oneness" with God within you, and with what is "Within God" within you, and with what "God is doing" with what is "Within God" within you, which is revealing God to God within you for the benefit of all of the Creation of God within God within you, and for a little while on the "outside" of you for the benefit of your brothers and sisters, so too) the inner meaning of his body lives here (in the example of the lotus pond).
          
Inside of the repulsive pit mixed with many types of dirt, man is formed into a dirty embryo and remains in this state for ten months. Venom is mixed with his flesh, skin and nerves.  At the tenth month he finds his exit through the entrance of the same dirty pit.  At the end of nine months, nine days, nine "nalihai", nine hours, nine minutes, and nine seconds he comes through the passage with fluid oozing out and with a melting heart of desire.

He falls out of the passage gazing at the dirt.  We see it as a baby.  On falling on earth, he gazes at the same repugnant spot which he had desired in his previous existence.

He desires the place called "Mother".  She makes him the rightful owner of four things (hunger, illness, old age, and death). That is why there are some specific differences in man and woman and these differences are referred to as males and females.

The baby looks at the mother and fondles her breast.  It strokes it with its hands and gazes at it with its eyes. It cries and clutches it.  It is this that nourishes the baby and helps it to grow.  The baby falls down, cries and clutches the mother's bosom and sucks it with its mouth. 

The mother says,

          "The baby is crying in hunger and must be given its milk".

As soon as the child is born, he observes that place and knows its inner meaning.  He utters,

          "Are you the mother of these four; hunger, disease, old age, and death?"

He grinds his gums saying,
          
          "Are you the woman who has shaken up the total universe knowing the
          philosophical meaning of these four and their result?"

          "Oh woman, do you not control and subordinate even the celestial beings and
          play games before my very eyes - the six acts of lust, hatred, greed, miserliness,
          bigotry and envy, and the sixty-four arts, as the ghosts that destroy the body,
          like the dog of desire and falsehood?"

          "You are the devil that develops my body and makes me wonder about like a dog
          on this earth. You are my mother but a devil for this earth. Oh you desirous
          mother, I shall attack you and break you.  I shall feed you with the heavenly
          words of "Mother!  Father!".

          "I shall show you the Primordial One.  I shall dance the sixty-four arts with you,
          compressing them within three years".
          
So saying, he bites the cheek, kisses the nose, squeezes the breast, kicks the chest, pinches the ears, and does many other things, and completes sixty-one games within a span of three years.

He does this with no malice.  He speaks with the Aathi, The Primordial One and smiles with the mother.

It is this infant having completed the sixty-one sensual arts who is born as
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine).  This gnani is called an "infant" by the world and the mother.  Reflect on this and be clarified.

My brothers and sisters, Aathi, the Primordial One converses and laughs with
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), stays with him, plays with him, sings him lullaby, carries him, kisses him and embraces him till he is three years of age.  The ten evil qualities of intoxication, lust, theft, murder, falsehood, jealousy, prejudice, impatience, haste, and arrogance are torn away from him. 

Born as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), with the Aathi (The Primordial One), he completes the sixty-one (of the sixty-four) arts compressed within three years.  He grows happily to a youthful stage.

Brother, it is because the ten evil qualities had been gotten rid of that God loves the
Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), trusts him, and is close to him, despite the great task of the sixty-one arts he had completed earlier.

When Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) severs the ten evil qualities, God is to him as He is to the infant. He will kiss him, converse with him, help him, show him love and speak to him.  This child will be a true gnani.  These are the important signs of the body and its power.

Aathi Eeswaran (God) plays with the infant, carries him, gives him milk, sings him lullabies, wheels him around in a pram, feeds him with ambrosia and performs several other things that are beneficial to the child.  This babe and the true gnani are in the same state.  Please reflect carefully about this.

When the child grows up, he catches the same repulsive spot at the second opportunity.  It is called love, infatuation or lust.  He handles this spot at the second opportunity and for this event the world holds celebrations and ceremonies.  The right of procreation in this hell-house of the world is obtained with pride.  In this state of pride, some spots that are to be concealed are kept exposed.
          
But brother, born as human and after having successfully completed the sixty-one sexual arts and reached their finality, he is oblivious to such temptation (at the age of 3 years old).  It is he who is born as (a human), as Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) and completes sixty-one of the sixty-four arts in this worldly life, until (or by the time) he is three years of age.  At this stage he is exempted from the other arts (from the last 3 of the sixty-four arts). 

The child thereafter (until he grows up) becomes oblivious to these sexual arts.  The human mother (the mother of the human child) does not recognize the sixty-one arts (that the human child plays out with her) and thinks the child is behaving innocently. 

This babe (or human child) will be a great gnani (by the age of 3 years old).  The Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) sees his greatness and determination.  He plays and laughs with the babe saying,
          
          "Oh great gnani, you have successfully conquered and discarded the sixty-one
          arts".

          "When you reach the age of twenty-one years, the three arts that are unknown to
          you will become four types of women.  They will turn out to be devils who will
          destroy you.  They will show love to your face but cause injury to your heart.
          They will show love that will melt you and lust that will blind your eye.  The ghost
          whom you denounced (earlier) will (then) squeeze your throat".

          "The three arts unknown to you earlier, "love, infatuation, and lust", will join with
          the sixty-one arts already conquered by you to follow you when you are
          twenty-one years of age.  These three arts and the sixty-one will make up the
          sixty-four sensual arts.  The three arts are the four types of women.  Your
          youthful age will try to turn you into a dog".
          
O Precious Son, if you escape from this and become a Manu-eesan (Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine), the Aathi Sivam (The Primal One) will befriend you.  The meaning of this cannot be easily told in full.

But the enormous "Debt of Karmic Births" will send you into three and a half crores of births.

It is those who conquer this enormous debt of birth who are the True Gnanis.  You should know this.  But Son, this is very rare in the world.  These True Gnanis will be like children.  They will conceal themselves.  They will know themselves.  They will worship the Lone God.  They will forget the world and proceed.  They will conquer death.  They will be in seclusion and hiding.  They will not work for glory and fame.  They will not display themselves.  They will possess many virtues, good conduct and behavior.  They will be at prayer and worship the Lone God.  They will be aloof.

Look for a Guru of this high state.  Do selfless service to Him and thereby acquire great benefit and reach the glorious feet of the Master (God).  This is the
Manu-eesan's
(Man-The-High, Man-The-Divine) great acquisition of the unattainable and rare gift of birth.
          
When your perform your many rare duties to the "True Guru", and expect no reward, your Guru Consciousness will develop and the Grace of the Guru too will grow.  Through the Grace of the "One True Guru", the Disciple will develop.  He will grow in wisdom and his love for the Aathi (The Primal One) will increase.  His sins will be thereby erased, and this will lead to the disappearance of fever, disease, and hatred.

All this will make the earth pleased and the "Justice of the King" will be enhanced.  Kindness and the love of fellow beings will grow.  The blessings of the Celestial Beings will be showered.  Charity will develop and patience will increase.  Poverty will cease to exist.  Guru Grace will spring forth.  The massive "Debt of Birth" will be erased due to this Grace.  Truth will grow.  The generous Celestial Beings will be alone with you offering you assistance.

But Son, at this point I must take you back to the planting of the tree in the desert, and its greatness.  This tree is the excellent and virtuous "Guru Leader".  All the words spoken Now are about this "Truthful Guru".  Reflect on this and do your service to Him wisely and your wants will be removed. You must perform selfless service towards Him with "One Mind".  Accordingly, the tree of "Guru's Grace" will grow to tower sky high.

Many poisonous winds will attack this tree.  The "Guru's Grace" will receive the poisonous wind and send in its place a good wind that will be of benefit to the country. Likewise, My Son, if the services of a "True Guru" are available in a country, good will accrue and pave the way for the prosperity of that country.

You must look for such a "Tree" and discover "It".  You cannot easily find this tree in any tree-family.  You should not cast aspersions and label the tree as good or bad as the words occur to your tongue.
          
Brother, when such a tree grows in a desert, people want to selfishly and greedily enjoy it for themselves, and prevent its benefit spreading to others.  Contrary to this conception, it is our duty to protect this tree in the desert as we protect a fruit-bearing tree in our garden in the country. 

We must share its benefits with all mankind.  If we thus water this tree with the waters of our love, the fruits of love will be abundant on the tree to be eaten by all the needy.  Further, this tree can bring happiness to all living beings.  It is the "panacea", the "Katpaham" (the Celestial Tree of the divine realm), that grants all wishes.  Therefore, the Grace of the Guru should be sustained and nourished and no hindrance or evil should be allowed to touch it. Amen.

          God to conquer the "Enormous Karmic Debt of Birth", which in truth is "Your
          Current Life" of "separation from", that is the "One True Gnani"
16.  The Value of the "One True Gnani" - is the "One True Gnani" Himself, not
          what He can do for you, not what you can get from Him, that is, for your life of
          "separation from" Him, for your "Current Life" of "separation from" the "One True
          Gnani", that is, the value of the "One True Gnani" is not what He can give you as
          "separate from" Himself
17.  The Tree That Is "Now Growing" In The "West" - will eventually fall into the
          "East", that is, the "Sun that is Now Rising in the West will eventually Set in the
          East", all of which in truth is Now the life and teaching of My Children, of the
          Children of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Us, and with Him),
          if you like
