In this world, it is not similarities or regularities that take us a step forward, but blunt opposites. And all the opposites in the universe are present within each and every one of us.

Therefore the believer needs to meet the unbeliever residing within. And the nonbeliever should get to know the silent faithful in him.

Until the day one reaches the stage of Insan-I Kamil, the perfect human being, faith is a gradual process and one that necessitates its seeming opposite: disbelief.

 

Postscript:

In observing Lent this year, I committed to 40 days of love posts. These posts are from the Works of Shams Tabrizi, a Persian writer. Each post is from the body of work often referred to as The Forty Rules of Love. The images are free fromPixabay. The daily titles are mine.
