The Blinding Sun and the Power Grid of God

75. One
And I am undone,
Unmade, unwritten, unread.
Unraveling, my brother! I am unraveling!
Fading but not dying,
Dreaming but not sleeping.

And I am undone,
Lost to you,
Lost to me,
Blinded by the Sun.

You do not look directly to the Sun because it would injure and blind you. But if you look at the Sun's reflection on a pool of water, it is alright. For God has made this world both a veil and a mirror, to hide and to display His many divine attributes. It is the way that He has chosen for all humanity to approach Him. A divine courtship, of Layla and Majnun, as we Majnuns run hither and tither chasing Layla's reflection, God's own intimacy, kindness and beauty for those who seek Him. 

And God has constructed a world of your existence with countless ways to communicate with Him, and He has created the capacity of the human heart to express numerous ways for us to praise Him. And the path of love is not through the highlands of elevated thoughts alone, but through the valley of humanity, with its many weaknesses, folly, greed, apathy, hate and hubris. You are meant, my friend, to be a beacon, a lamp, a connection to a better reality. So you do not thumb your nose at what most people think to be ridiculous and stupid. You are looking through the veil of humanity's own weakness to see the divine connection, that we might make this world a better place.

That is all. 

The Power Grid of God
Do not look down upon the old,
And what appears to be broken,
Do not cast aspersion without knowing
The true reality of meanings,
Do not think lowly of those
Whom you think have lost the plot,
For even the humblest looking sockets
Is connected to the Power Grid of God.

Have a lovely day, sunshine. God bless you.

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
