The way was prepared by thousands of such nights. But tonight’s zikr marked a transition. The aim was to feel the exquisite intimacy of remembering and being remembered, to find again my relationship to Him, to experience the mushahida, the mutual regarding that unfolds in His presence. But not this night.
Something more was asked. As we took our places in the circle, it was clear that we were being held by strong hands, supported by our lineage but also great beings who form the spiritual hierarchy…Muhayamin, the ones who protect us here on earth. We were not there to meet Him. We were there to do His work.
The world is increasingly out of alignment. The connection between earth and the higher realms has been broken. We invoked Him as Restorer, that all might find their correct place and that the links might be restored. The zikr was for Him and for us.
