The Journey to Transformation
The world around us makes perfect sense only if we look at it through the eyes of Unity (tawhīd). No matter what we look at in existence, we find that it can always be traced back to its one original source, Allah. Recognising the One Existent Creator while we live in this world of multiple forms is essential for our well-being. Without such a unitive recognition and awareness, we tend to fluctuate between being disturbed and tranquil.
Where and when Truth exists
Truth is before all/anything and after all/anything is gone. The universe is held by Truth. Truth is the cause of all experiences and realities. Consciousness and life are energised by the grace of Truth.
The supreme mystery of life is to know and resolve this puzzling situation. If all is by the grace of Truth, then what is my personal relationship with it? Am I totally dependent? If I am dependant, how is it that I have a will? I have needs, desires and attractions and repulsions!
Energy and Awareness
At a given situation or time we all have a certain amount of energy. However we like to measure it, you will find a certain amount of energy available at any one time. Why are most of us unbalanced or dissatisfied at the moment? It is because our energy is not harnessed. We are not contained and therefore not wholesome. Part of our energy is leaking away in the form of anxiety and worry.
The Parable of the Spider's House
"The parable of those who take guardians besides Allah is like the parable of the spider that spins for itself a house. Most surely the frailest of houses is the spider's web if only they understood." - Al-Qur'an 29:41.
