Don’t let God be an abstraction you perform around in order to escape yourself and the uncertainty of the existential. There’s a deeper, graceful and unfailing reality that is encompassed by the divine when one opens up to experience all of life through that lens. Don’t interact with texts or concepts taught to you by others, but implement them in your liminal spaces; the gray areas, the twilight zone, the ambiguities, the unknown. Engage Allaah beyond your mind and beyond what you know. That’s how yaqeen, conviction, is formed. And that kind of faith is the only thing that remains in the worst of storms and chaos. It’s what is present when the mind has collapsed. Live the words. Ask Him for clarification. Engage with Him. Look for signs and synchronicities. You’re missing out on the best of life if you’re not connected to the transpersonal.
