Only Allaah can integrate and fuse together our fragmented consciousness. But through remaining aware without resistance we can receive the healing presence that would cure our neurosis. It’d bring together the warring factions of body, mind and soul. It’d bridge the gap between thoughts and heart. No amount of trying to figure it out through analysis or rationalization can create this. This is divine creativity at work, the same dynamic that created you and me. It’s a mystery to accept and honour by not trying to possess or control it as a way to bypass surrender. Surrendering in the face of fear is putting down your weapon first. It’s a risk and you may expose yourself to being shot but you’re not surrendering to the hostile reality, you’re surrendering to the creator of realities to whom all belong. In that light, it’s a sacrifice and an act of the ultimate trust to give up your survival for the revival of your heart.
