The Secret of The Ant

Sheikh Eşref Efendi, Berlin  12.08.2012
  • Not every secret has to be opened as either the time to understand it has not come yet or it would be useless in the specific situation. For example the secret of the ant:

    How does the ant find its way back home in a desert? There where there is no orientation.

    An ant does not run straight but zigzag.

    How should the ant find its way back? These zigzag ways are so confusing. Fact is that the ants find their way back home.

    “How should I know, Sheikh? I have never been an ant.”

    My Grandsheikh gives the example which is that difficult as in a desert there are no signs. The “city ant” has signs at least.

    What is the secret of that ant, finding its way back home? Don't ask for that single ant when there are thousands of ants. Don't get bogged down in details.

    But we will explain it in a simple way: Forget the ants, flees, horses, and cows, Peters, and Mehmets...leave them alone. Go to a mirror and ask for yourself:

    Why am I?

    Where am I?

    These are important questions to understand yourself. And if you understand yourself, the ant from the desert and the city, the flea, horse and cow, Peter and Mehmet will come to you and introduce themselves. Even if there are millions of them. Even this is physically not possible.

    But if you understand yourself, you will be beyond physical things. And every creature on order from above has to introduce itself to you and to show its secret.

    Everything you ask for is already contained in our sohbets. Be patient and it will reveal itself.

    Selam aleykum - aleykum selam
