The Faces

Take time to remember what we have done
Heart is the best place where we stay
Why is running around to another block?
Just open our eyes and look around
Seeing our face on the pool of water
We see the full moon still there
Drops of water on green leaf
Light through the windows
Maybe somebody telling us many things
But we only hear the wind blow on the tree
A chirp of bird maybe it’s easy to understand
For the first time we understand what we hear
Gratitude with our life
Living in the present moment
Be honest with ourselves and listen

Disregard everything that hinder our heart
Don’t try to be feel important and be humble
We throw it all away useless proud
See the people around us and give smile
Maybe they ignore us but our heart always smile
Nothing is ever lose and smile still remain
Happiness bloom in our heart
So many things still waiting for our greeting
See the white floor and gray wall
Simple and easy to see
Let everything fly with their nature
We see everything from within
Have faith within ourselves
Don’t think everything but see
Just let our mind become candle our seeing

We have met so many people
Each of them have many faces
They’re change their faces moment to moment
Don’t attach for each one of them
Memory & hope will bury ourselves
It’s not important to think about
There’s great maxim in the world that we remind
Everything is impermanent
We repeat in our heart this holy words
Everything will be destroyed except His Face.

People always change like rainbow
Time changes everything
When we met our old friends
Maybe we were feel so close, but so far apart
Sometimes when we separate from them
So far apart but close at heart
Human heart is difficult to fathom
We always identify ourselves with ‘things’ that we have
We are human and always change
We think we are still the same,
Maybe someone say we are change
But we think they are changes too
What can we say now?
Just give smile in our heart

We forget what they says and let’s passing by
Everything will flow wherever they please
Like water run dry in summer and there’s no trace remain
Praise and blame from others are sick of words
Maybe right or wrong but we don’t need to argue again
Ask no more and we must avoid them
We must stop ourselves and take a rest
Always remember in our mind
"That the life of this world is but play
and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting
and multiplying....And what is the life of this world,
but goods and chattels of deception?"

See the spider web on the wall over the window
So many times we met but we don’t see it
Everything disappear before our eyes
Actually this spider web always there
Let our mind telling special story and memory
Like movie projector displaying moving pictures on the screen
All moving pictures have not essence actually
All pictures already lost on projecting screen
We just watch this empty appearance
Nothing what we know is real
Everything is changing

See the stars in the sky
So distant and so far away from us
Everything else will lost become dust
We are so small and nothing special in this universe
So small in the sand desert of time
We are nothing and life is fleeting
All the world that we are created will lost
We are standing alone like a tree on the hill
All that we know we are here to accept our destiny
We will face The Unlimited Merciful alone
And we disappear into nothingness
Everything will be destroyed except His Face

0 God, deliver us from preoccupation with worldly vanities,
and show us the nature of things ' as they really are.
Remove from our eyes veil of ignorance, and show things
as they really are. Show not to us non-existence as existent,
nor cast the veil of non-existence over the beauty of existence.
Make this phenomenal world the mirror to reflect the manifestations
of Thy beauty, not a veil to separate and repel us from Thee.
Cause these unreal phenomena of the universe to be for us
the sources of knowledge and insight, and not the cause
of ignorance and blindness. Our alienation and severance
from Thy beauty all proceed from ourselves.Deliver us from
ourselves, and accord to us intimate knowledge of Thee....
From Lawai'h by Abdul-Rahman al-Jami

__All that lives on earth or in the heavens is bound to pass away(Q:55:26)
__Everything will be destroyed except His Face.(Q: 28:88)__
__Know ye (all), that the life of this world is but play
and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying,
(in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children.
Here is a similitude: How rain and the growth which it brings forth,
delight (the hearts of) the tillers; soon it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow;
then it becomes dry and crumbles away. ...And what is the life of
this world, but goods and chattels of deception? (Q:57.20)
