Beyond the Politics of the Comfort Zone

"Let my building burn. Justice needs to be served."


Ruhel Islam spoke these words to a friend upon learning that his restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, had caught fire on the second night of the Minneapolis uprising which occurred in response to the police murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Islam’s daughter shared his words the next morning on a Facebook post that continued, “Gandhi Mahal may have felt the flames last night, but our firey [sic]drive to help protect and stand with our community will never die! Peace be with everyone.”

That post is one of the many moving statements of solidarity to come from small business owners whose property and livelihoods have been impacted by the displays of resistance that have spread across the US in recent weeks. These declarations represent a shift away from a pair of narratives about political protest that have lon

PODCAST (6-18-2020): Vegetarian Sayings of Jesus, Rumi, Rabia & Bawa Muhaiyaddeen in Sufi Islamic Sources -- Spiritual Awakening Radio With James Bean @ Youtube: https://youtu.be/PTW5XN5Sqls

You might assume Islamic and Sufi literature would portray Jesus as following a meat-eating halal diet, and that famous Sufi poet-mystics such as Rumi and Rabia would have followed a halal diet too. And yet the surprising reality is Jesus is clearly described as a vegetarian. I also show some noteworthy parallels between certain saying of Jesus preserved in Islamic sources and the Gospel of Thomas. There are actually vegan poetry verses from Jalaluddin Rumi, and Rabia of Basra is described as being vegan as well. Today on Spiritual Awakening Radio with James Bean an exploration of veg and vegan sayings of Jesus, Rumi, Rabia of Basra, and hear the pro-vegetarian Sufi message of Bawa Muhai... Show more...

Points of Agreement Between the Ebionites and SANT MAT

The Ebionites would have really loved Kabir and the Sants of India that emerged during the medieval period. So I share some key teachings of the Sant tradition, the Way of the Saints (Sant Mat), the Path of the Masters, very much in agreement with the Ebionites:

1) belief in, and meditation upon, the One God,

2) opposition to the worship of idols (all forms of idolatry),

3) opposition to ritual animal sacrifice in various religious temples, and

4) strictly adhering to a vegetarian (or even vegan) diet as part of their peaceful (ahimsa) ethical foundation for living.

A bedtime story from Caitlin Johnstone

Now, if you’d been hearing the bedtime story your whole life but not the waking up story, you would naturally assume that demanding an end to police brutality was the most reasonable thing in the world.

Good thing #America has a leader who knows how to keep the #peace and to maintain #order. Imagine what it would look like if the country was run by a #narcissistic ape that would have no problems chasing people away with rubber bullets and tear gas just because he wants a picture taken of him holding a #bible.

A Book of Sant Mat Ethics: “Kabir 1008 Vani” — One of the Most Important Books of Kabir

Serving, Helping Others During This Life: "The advantage of being in the human mode of existence lies in giving and serving only, i.e. helping others as much as possible. Because, possibly you will not get this body [human form] again. This time you have been given this body, and so do not hesitate; serve others and that is all." (Guru Kabir, Saakhi Granth of Kabir, 1008 Kabir Vani)

“Love is like a deep sea. Only that lover (of God) who will dive into it fearlessly shall be able to get the pearl of ultimate happiness in it. And one who will not be able to muster up enough courage to dive into it, shall remain sitting at the beach. He will remain without love in this world. How will he get the pearls of ultimate happiness then?” (Kabir 1008 Vani)

The Miracle of Kindness | Chris Hedges


Evil, even in the darkest moments, is impotent before the miracle of human kindness. This miracle defies prejudices and hatreds. It crosses cultures and religions. It lies at the core of faith. Take a brief journey through the eyes of American, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges to #Jerusalem, #Gaza, and #Iraq, and discover the sacred bonds that make us human.
