BREAK OUT OF YOUR CAGE
by Rumi (k.s)

Who are we in this entangled world? WE, each one of us is a shadow existence, each one of us is nothing. WE are like the aliph (letter “A”) that doesn’t join with any letters and doesn’t take any dot. Every action manifesting through us (WE), and every state, are the manifestation of His divine name and adjectives.

How happy is the person who got away from himself, got out of himself, his nafsanic ego (I’ness. ), and got connected to the live and immortal that is within himself.

Woe to that live one, sitting with dead, died spiritually and lost his life.
By sincerity, by heart and soul, if you read the Qur’an of the Most Generous (Al-Kareem), and seek refuge to it, then you get acquainted with the spirits of the prophets.

Qur’an is the spiritual states (hâl) of the prophets. They are the fishes of the unsullied and pure sea of ONEness (WaHDat).
Although you read the Qur’an, if you don’t conform to its commands and live the Qur’an’s moral ethics (akhlaq), then what benefit does seeing the prophets and the walees (friends of Haqq) give to you?

If you read the parables of the prophets that are in the Qur’an, and live the commands of the Qur’an, then the body cage starts coming narrow to the soul bird (jann).
The bird in the cage is like a prisoner in prison. For it not to wish for getting out of it, is because of its ignorance (unawareness).

The spirits breaking out of their cages are the prophets. As they reach the Haqq and truth (haqiqat), they become worthy of showing way to people. Their voices come from the outside of cages, and heard from the religion (Deen [*]).
That voice says “the only way of SALVaTion for you, the only way of delivarence from the body cage.”

WE got out of this narrow cage by being connected to a live “walee”, we revived and had SaLVaTion. There is no other way to get rid of that cage.

Put an effort to show your self as ill, weak, and needy so that they will find you worthless and take you out of the circle of fame.
Because, being famous amongst the people, ties the man to the world so strongly that this tie is worse (stronger) than an iron chain.

Rumi (k.s)

[*] DeeN: Translated as religion in English literature but a “deen” mentioned in the Qur’an can not be confined to the term “religion” in English. Every term has outer and inner dimensions in the Qur’an. “DeeN” is Divine light of continuity ( Nur ul Daimiyyat). Everyone should find out about this term by knowing –finding-becoming and living.

Turkish Version:

BU TEN KAFESİNDEN KURTUL

Bu karma karışık olan dünyada biz kim oluyoruz? Biz birer gölge varlık, birer hiçten ibaretiz. Hiç bir harfle birleşmeyen, hiç bir nokta almayan elif gibiyiz. Bizden zuhûr eden her hareket , her hal, O’nun esmâ ve ilahi sıfatlarının tecellisidir.

Kendinden uzaklaşıp, kendinden , kendi nefsanî benliğinden kurtulup da bir diriye, kendinde bulunan ölümsüze bağlanan kişi ne mutlu bir kişidir.

Yazıklar olsun, o diriye ki, ölü ile oturmuş, mânen ölmüş,hayatını kaybetmiştir.
Hulûs ile, canla, başla, Kur’ân-I Kerîm okur, ona sığınırsan, peygamberlerin ruhları ile âşînalık peyda edersin.

Kur’ân, peygamberlerin halleridir. Onlar tertemiz, saf vahdet denizinin balıklarıdır.
Kur’ân okuduğun halde, onun emirlerine uymazsan, Kur’ân âhlâkını yaşamaz isen, sana peygamberleri ve velîleri görmenin ne faydası olur?

Peygamberlerin Kur’ ân’da bulunan kıssalarını okur, Kur’ ân’ın emirlerini yaşarsan, can kuşuna ten kafesi dar gelmeğe başlar.
Kafesteki kuş, zindandaki mahpusa benzer. Kurtulmayı istememesi onun bilgisizliğindendir.

Kafeslerinden kurtulan rûhlar, peygamberlerdir. Onlar Hakk ve hakîkate erdikleri için, insanlara yol göstermeğe lâyık olmuşlardır. Onların sesleri kafeslerin dışından gelir, dinden duyulur.
O ses ; “senin için kurtuluş yolu, ancak ten kafesinden kurtulma yoludur.” Der.

Biz, bu daracık kafesten, diri olan bir velîye bağlanarak dirildik de kurtulduk. O kafesten kurtulmanın başka çaresi de yoktur.

Kendini hasta, zayıf , düşkün göstermeğe bak ki, seni değersiz bulup, şöhret halkasının dışına atsınlar.
Çünkü halk arasında şöhret sahibi olmak, insanı dünyaya öyle sağlamca bağlarki, bu bağ, demir zincirden de beterdir.
