Ramadan’s Lesson Number One:
We never know what we are looking at, until we look deeper.
And we can only look deeper when we will and are welcomed to look deeper.
The door is opened, might be slightly opened, or even when it is locked and closed, it still is a view to look into and understand what it really is we are looking at.
First impressions never last, and they can mean something but are never accurate. We miss, most of the time.
But then, we get closer and closer to the true meaning of the picture we are looking into.
It can appear so dark, but once inside, it is so light and peaceful, and it can appear so light and once inside it is the darkest place on earth.
Nonetheless, we can never know just by looking at the cover.
The cover is a form. And our eyes can only have better first impression judgments when one’s vision is pure, and clean.
Other than that, our vision is blurred, mischievous, and malicious.
It is not a vision to count on, until it has been washed out from all vanity and desires. It must be like water, crystal clear.
Stereotypes are conducts of blurred vision. It is a cover that has been poorly interpreted over and over again. Most people tend to be followers, and so they follow the false meaning of the appearance.
Versus in the Quran are all forms, they can be easily misunderstood and misinterpreted over and over again, they can give you a clue to what they might mean, but they are rarely understood within full meaning. The meaning of each verse has a deep story within, and only those who attain high spiritual connection can find it is easy to find true meaning behind each verse.
Life is also a form. It is a misinterpretation. Most things are poorly visible. Most things are apparent more than true wisdom, like flares, they can be easily put off or put aside. Most things in life are easily misunderstood. Because to meaning, it is more than what we just look at, meanings are mostly always hiding inside and behind, only those who are well experienced, and well explored, those who truly understand that behind each one of us, there is something a little something more than what we just put on and walk around with.
So listen more than look, for appearances are only appearances, what truly matters is what lies within.
