As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The other day I decided to attend an Islamic lecture. I enjoy these spiritual teachings because I see how much they are related to the teachings of Aristotle's philosophy. Although there are differences we can see how he had an influence upon Islamic Philosophy. During this talk I was reminded of the following quote that was written by the poet Rumi - Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī.
This quote can be related to the idea of having a weak heart. The truth is that love does make the heart weak, because we have become vulnerable, we are giving ourself to another being. However, sometimes we have to find strength, through love there is also strength to be found. When we find moments where we become weak, we must use these moments as teachable moments, so that we can learn and grow from these.
This is the beauty of faith, because through love there is also faith. It is the faith that must always serve as an anchor. Faith is what allows us to reach and maintain the equilibrium. This faith can be rooted in the belief of a higher being, or someone who is loved, because Gods spirit is embodied within human beings, this is what makes us precious. Divinity is the acceptance of oneness, and it is through oneness that divinity is vested in us.
Our thoughts, to invite and inspire. With Love & kindness. :)
