perhaps it just begins...

Striving through my meditation
Surrendering into my contemplation
Lifted up into Oneness
Forgiven before I arrive
Joyfully welcomed in coming home
As a child who was away far too long
Loving kindness surrounds me
Becoming that which I could not be alone
Sanctified completion in Her presence

Hoping that for my family
Hoping that for my friends
Hoping that for my neighbors
Hoping that for my enemies
Through the Peace beyond all understanding
We may become one.

Blessed Shekinah

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Blue"]Thank You.  For trying.
So you end up in Her presence, and still not becoming ONE.
At least you are getting sowewhere but still with the world.

I did mention; "perhaps it just begins..."
and  "We may become one."

Nevertheless:

Intellect is good and desirable to the extent it brings you to the Queen’'s door. Once you have reached Her door, then divorce the intellect! From this time on, the intellect will be to your loss and a brigand. When you reach Her, entrust yourself to Her! You have no business with the how and the wherefore. Know that the intellect's cleverness all belongs to the vestibule. Even if it possesses the knowledge of Plato, it is still outside of the palace.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Blue"]All this while, even before embarking on anything, without knowing, the Queen has been going in and out of the palace and knows every vestibules attached to it - the Al-Quran.

So who it is, or, whose desire it is to enter the palace?

Where Gnostic ends, Atheism starts. Only that I would rather embrace Gnosticism than Atheism. But with regards to the queen, I would rather divorce her than my Intellect. There is nothing worse for a man than to give up his own Intellect and trust his destiny to a passionating woman. A man's passion is overlapped by man's life. What are we to do when passion is no longer there? Freedom will be gone as the worst slavery remains to the most cruel of masters.
