Throwing your ego into the sea and watching it drown in the vastness of what
you don’t know.
Admitting you have the ego to drown and that the sea of vastness is there
Showing someone else how to do it.
Humility is what will commence the journey.
It will set you on fire in your love of learning, knowledge and wisdom.
A great scholar said, ‘The more I learned, the more ignorant I became’. Think about the context of this magnificent quote. Think about who said it and it’s weight.
He wasn’t ignorant by any means but this is an expression of humility and defeat. Admittance he’s a speck of nothing despite of who the public thought he was, in the vast ocean of knowledge that existed and opened up to him the more he learned.
The King ran out of the cave in ecstasy, screaming with hands in the air. The people thought he had lost his mind. It had been forty days since he entered the cave as a last resort, burdened with the guilt of not being able to use his riches to save his ailing wife.
“What is it King? What did you find?” the people asked as they had been standing anxiously for forty days.
Panting and still elated he blurted out, “I found it!”
“Found what,” the people asked again.
“Teach us, King”.
With a sigh of relief the king said,
“All you have to do is ask.”
You have no business loving someone
if you haven’t learned the language.
Otherwise it is only material love.
There is a major difference between

is in the nomenclature of lovers.
He wants us to come to Him whole, but the only way to come whole is to strip away layers of our being until naked.
Naked souls with no garments of vices.
The ability to recognise your garments will determine how easily you can remove them.
That is the Egoïste’s aim, they want Him all to themselves.
Why are you playing games, giving him half of you?
Lovers dress for the occasion.
You’re not crazy, you’re just in love. And if you’re not crazy, you’ll never meet Him.
How many layers, veils, coats of distraction do we have?
It makes no comprehensible sense that we cry pangs of longing with distractions engulfing us.
How far are you willing to go?
The devotion of a moth has challenged lovers for an eternity
The mad amongst us rise to the occasion.
They burn for Him.
For centuries, the lovers have jumped into the flame only to find it cool and tranquil like our forefather Abraham peace be upon him. They were not about to be outdone by a moth.
