Meditation by the late Lex Hixon on al-Fatiha

The Direct Path

My beloved Muhammad, please inspire My precious human beings to affirm with their entire being the Majestic Name, Allah Most High, Who is the Ultimate Source now speaking through you as tender Mercy and sublime Love. Please teach humanity to pray this way:

"Spontaneous praise arising from the hearts and minds of all beings flows toward Allah alone, the Ever-Present Source and Goal of Being, Who sustains and cherishes every being, the Source of Love, Who overflows constantly with compassion and forgiveness. The Supreme Source draws all conscious beings to their Day of Truth, their homecoming into the Radiance of Allah. To Allah alone, as the Source of Being, can living beings truly offer their entire being. From Allah alone, as the Source of Power and Love, can true strength and guidance be received. Most precious Allah, You alone teach human beings to turn consciously toward their own True Source. This is the direct path of Islam, revealed through all the Prophets and courageously taken by the lovers of Love who follow the call of Love directly to the Source of Love. This is not one of the mundane paths that wander through Creation, taken by those who heedlessly turn away from the Source of Creation."
