When you accept and surrender to your deepest pain and fears, you free your focus from resisting what is into meditating on what could be, which is truly as endless and unlimited and abundant as Allaah. Hope is inevitably a search for Allaah.
When you make room for the thorn in your side, you’re no longer bound to it. You’re untangled from its hooks and though you’re aware of the pain you’re not it. You’re no longer taking responsibility for something that was assigned to you by divine decree and through divine wisdom. You’re no longer blaming yourself for something that is meant to open you up to the obstacles within you. You no longer have to split your consciousness or compartmentalize your awareness in order to be.
When you let yourself feel everything, you feel fulfilled and free.
