Unity Blooms: A Religious Narrative of Ascension and Divine Union Symbolized with Rose

The narratives that describe Prophet Muhammad’s fragrant aura of roses highlight a deeper symbolism. It’s not merely about a pleasant scent but a sacred message behind his ascension-a symbolic resonance with the celestial journey where he “rose” through the heavens. The association with roses mirrors the unfolding stages of his spiritual ascent, akin to the blooming petals of a rose as a flower vibrates in higher frequencies than any other flower.

During the Miraj, Prophet Muhammad transcended earthly boundaries, ascending through celestial spheres and culminating in a divine encounter. The fragrance of roses surrounding him in narratives symbolizes the heightened/altered state of consciousness attained during this celestial voyage. It’s an olfactory metaphor for the ascent, where the Prophet, like a rose in bloom, unfolded divine qualities at each stage of his spiritual journey to anchor God’s love, unity consciousness to Earth.

Prophet Muhammad’s fragrant aura of roses, as narrated in the traditions, thus encapsulates not only the ascent to spiritual heights but also the divine alchemy of uniting masculine and feminine aspects within his being. The symbolism of the rose, with its graceful balance of petals, reflects the integration of wisdom and compassion, strength and gentleness-a holistic union mirrored in the divine qualities manifested through his being and existence.

Amidst the rich tapestry of religious perspectives, diverse narratives, and varied cultures, a profound truth prevails-a universal message echoing through the ages. Regardless of the distinct consciousness colors attributed to different prophets or ascended masters, a common thread runs through their teachings. Consider, for instance, the Buddha’s teachings on enlightenment, emphasizing the purification of the mind and the path to Nirvana. In Hinduism, the concept of Moksha underscores a similar quest for liberation and union with the divine.

Moving to the Abrahamic traditions, Moses received guidance on the purification of the soul through the commandments, emphasizing ethica living and devotion to God. In Christianity, the teachings of Jesus emphasize love, forgiveness, and the journey towards the Kingdom of God within.

Similarly, in Islam, Prophet Muhammad’s messages underscore purification of the heart and submission to the divine will.

And these examples from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds illustrate a shared spiritual essence: Beyond the surface differences, the core message remains steadfast: the purification of the soul and the quest for reunion with the oneness within us. It transcends the boundaries of religious traditions, cultural lenses, and diverse narratives, underscoring a shared spiritual journey toward inner harmony and connection with the divine. In recognizing this common essence, we unveil a unifying wisdom that speaks to the universal longing for spiritual elevation and the recognition of the oneness that dwells within every soul.

I honour the divine love within you.
