Sunday morning pancakes 🙌
Made with eggs, mashed banana, almond meal, LSA mix and a drizzle of organic maple syrup 🍯
When I’m craving something chocolatey, I spread with some homemade nutella - delicious with strawberries 🍓
We have all heard about the whirling dervishes. But do we know that it is a religious ceremony? It is a meditative prayer technique, similar to some extent with zen buddhism meditation and silence retreat or quiet time spent with God or praying in tongues for Christians ... underlying this relgious practice is the Sufi branch of Islam characterised by self introspective and search for closeness to God, shunning materialism, inviting to come check out, not judging nor coercing its practice on others. An embodiment of many things good about religious practices without the overbearing claim of knowing exactly what God wants. After all, if we know exactly what God wants, is he still our God or are we now God imputing our wants over His (or Hers?) since we must be equal to God to understand God's will that well. It is written, yes, but that is, to me, only indicative of desired direction, for if we know exactly the destination then we know God's mind. That would put us on par with God. I hope I am not making enemies with this post. I am discussing my philosophy of religion and religious practices.
Whirling dervishes are followers of Rumi, the famous founder of the Sufi branch of Islam. It ask many questions of self, the looking for the dirt specks in own eyes without reference to anyone else but God. Rumi's writings are often quoted everywhere.
We sat prayerfully to watch a sama in progress. We also visited the tomb of Rumi at the museum mosque in Konya, Turkey marked by the green tower. Photography by visitor is not permitted although we noticed non observance of this restriction by locals.
