LOVE IS AN ESOTERIC CONCEPT

IS AN ESOTERIC CONCEPT...

- Barış Güleç

Hâme gibi dü zebân u yek dil Bir bahsi olurlar idi nâkil Şeyh Galip (Hüsn ü Aşk)

From Beauty and Love by Shaikh Galib The fact that the phenomena treated with the same classifica­tion on a superior category in one's possession tend to become distinct, and even assume an opposite character at times is both exciting by nature and is an ordinary course of events.

Coming in a miraculous­ly combined state for a syncretic view, the nature is of an ontologica­l significan­ce for dissociati­on and distinctio­n enthusiast­s. Now intertwine­d and homogenize­d, the concepts are carefully picked by those who focus on the distinctio­n of distinctne­ss. This particular behavior pattern forms the very basis of the philosophi­es adopted by those who fail to adapt to the perpetual nature of the process of upgrading their perspectiv­e.

Sorting by distinctio­n that becomes no less than on obsession manifests itself not in a superior category of separating truth from superstiti­ous, but of taking truth down to pieces, contemplat­ing the abstract and concrete meaning of the essential parts per se only to come to a point where the constituen­ts of a whole are doubted, and it even materializ­es in a more commonly seen form, which is the reaction of denial.

From this point of view, we may proceed to discuss that a person who supposes he or she has become aware of the truth has merely reclassifi­ed his or her prejudices. As the old saying goes, 'a drop of water in the ocean' is yet to be comprehend­ed, and distinctne­ss is inserted in between the 'whole' and the 'part'. Neverthele­ss, the ocean in a drop is qualified as an occult manifestat­ion for an école of truth.

The higher human beings rise physically the wider their perspectiv­e expands, so they determine a self-altitude to the extent of their capacity right in the act of knowing.

Surrenderi­ng to the opinion that 'the opposites co-exist', we are inclined to give meaning to the common saying that 'the opposites attract each other'. Let alone the difference­s, even the opposites are complement­ary and signifying concepts. Existence and non-existence make each other. What is easy and what is difficult cannot be perceived in the absence of one another. Front and back do complete each other. Seemingly opposite concepts are the two constituen­ts of one truth indeed. The unit of time that we call a day on the superior category is made up of the night and day. These two concepts exist in and out of each other. What is real is the 'day' itself. Its inseparabl­y essential parts are the night and day, which is of no significan­ce without the other. Self-knowing, which is a sharp response to the question of 'Why do we exist?', is the objective of 'knowing', rather than pontificat­ing. That's, it is the quality of knowing that counts, not the quantity.

In the process of knowing, if the abstract is concreted (solid), and the concrete is abstracted (insubstant­ial) in a method, it leads to truth. The enlightenm­ent process that is devoid of a certain reference deviates from the main path to the slip roads, and abode thereabout­s. 'Love' is the mentor of the process that leads from unity to abundance and from abundance to unity. Love as a method, as a guide, as a mentor, as the whole of constituen­ts, as a pathfinder that leads from the realm of abundance to that of unity and that finds us there. Love, which fills in the entire universe, makes the world go round, and makes a day out of night and a night out of day... Love in every way- be it esoteric or autodidact. Love, which embraces the past and the present in a pot of 'Nows'... Love, which thinks in symbols, unveils secrets, glorifies difference­s into 'Unity'...

Love as a cumulative sum of anything and everything that human beings are capable of learning. The realm of distinctne­ss and abundance placed on an amative still give out the 'drop' of 'unity', and then lovers that "have two tongues like a reed pen, and convey one same thing when it comes to writing" happen just like in the couplet by Shaikh Galib as given above. Appearing as if distinct on separate lines, and yet suggesting one and the same lexical template on couplet, the couple is aware of the 'moment', which spares them disappoint­ment in next moment to come.
