Delicate Reputation

Either you’re willing to understand me or you’re not willing to understand me; if you’re not willing to understand me then I will not waste my time easing your resistance. If you are willing to understand me, then I will focus on what’s real with no regards to whether I’m right or not. Your willingness to understand me gives me an opportunity to grow. That’s all I’m focused on right now ; people concerned with what’s real and not with who’s right.

I don’t want to be right. Being right is missing out on the bigger picture by reducing the truth to words and instances. I want to feel what’s real, and my perception of how I come across is my biggest hinder because it’s an inability for my ego to submit to my soul. Insisting on being right means someone else has to be wrong and I’m not going to waste my life peddling the extremes and measuring the distance from the ideal. I’m on a soul journey to unravel what Allaah has created and intended for me. I’m inherently clueless and powerless and helpless, except by Allaah’s aid.

My view of myself and my status quo can be summed up by the invocation :

لا حول و لا قوة إلا بالله

{Laa Hawla wa Laa Quwwata illaa Bi-llaah}

حول means transformation, movement, evolution, change

قوة means strength, power

Hawl= internal dynamism

Quwwa= external potency

Thus

There’s no transformation that can be made nor exertion of (effective) force (upon something) without the energy and power of Allaah.

I’d rather surrender to Allaah and His will than try to resist life.
