The Masnavi/Mathnawi is an extensive poem written in Persian by Jalal al-Din Muhammad Balkhi, also known as Rumi. The Masnavi is one of the most influential works of Sufism, commonly called “the Quran in Persian”. It has been viewed by many commentators as the greatest mystical poem in world literature. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines. It is a spiritual text that teaches Sufis how to reach their goal of being truly in love with God.
Death is the source of Life & Life is the Source of Death. There is no life without death and there is no death without life. When we die and get buried underground, that death becomes the source or gives birth to New Life for Insects, animals, bacterias, fungus etc.
Death gives birth to life and life gives birth to death. It’s a loop. Likewise once there was Life (a glowing star) and then a time came when it’s gone explode through a Big Bang and billions of Rocky pieces gone spread in the infinite empty space.
All of those rocks went dead because they got separated from Life. Among them, there was a dead broken piece which we call Planet Earth. Now it was dead because it separated from Life (a glowing star).
Call it a Deadbody and in that dead body a lot of insects start to get born and those insects are all the living beings of this planet including us (Humans). We are the insects of a dead body (Planet Earth). Our life is the result of the death of planet earth and our death will give birth to new beings. It’s an Infinite Cycle.
God does not need a cause or reason or think or plan or say any word to create this universe or everything. It’s all is the essence of God, Like the Fragrance & Color Red, which is the essence of Rose. Rose does not need to think or plan or say any word to appear as red & produce its fragrance, these are just rose’s attributes/essence. Water does not need to think, plan or say any word to become Wet. Wetness is the essence of Water. The same applies to God & Universe. The universe is the essence/attribute of God.
The Most Easiest thing in the Universe is to Know God. God Is Neutral, the Center, beginning, Source & the Substance of everything. It’s easier to know, look or reach God than becoming a Pious/Righteous person and changing your habits which developed through the conditioning of half of your life. People think that to know or befriend God we have to purify ourselves through the very hard struggles of many many years, we have to follow religion & rules and become a specific type of righteous & Pious Person. That’s not true. Wave does not need to do many years of practice to know the Ocean. Wave is Ocean. To reach God you do not need to do or go anywhere because God is already here & now. To realize God you just need to know What is God? And when you will know that then you will see God Instantly Because “What is, is God”.
Something is made of Nothing & Nothing is made of Something. Sound is made of Silence & Silence is made of Sound. Movement is made of Stillness & Stillness is made of Movement. Light is made of Darkness & Darkness is made of Light.
