Why is the world the way it is? Sometimes I wonder. When did hurt become recreational?

Bleeding hearts continue like miraculous springs. For souls part from bodies more than we know. Constant suffering. Constant pain. But why? Why have we lost our humanity?

One good word is all it takes. If they but listened to his message. If they gave him one word, one word... His one word is today's voluminous collection of works. Evidence, proofs. But no, even on the intimate level, one is guilty until proven innocent. There are no chances in this game of life.

You can't put your hope in the people, words are empty. Nothingness. Superficiality is our closest companion. Soap box presentations by many, only more entertainment. Why must people suffer at the hands of each other?

Words stop on tongues and lips, never going further down one's throat. Missing the way to sincerity. Why is this world complicated in wretchedness?

I don't understand it. I can't accept it. I blame you. You fault me. No words.

Each breath takes me one step closer to my grave. I don't need this world knocking at my door. I'm waiting for the knock of the next world. It cares while you deceive.

Sometimes I wonder why the world is the way it is.

As beautiful as the message is, can it be enough to turn the tide? What if that message falls upon ears that refuse to listen? What if that message is delivered by people who don't believe it themselves?

Messages themselves are temporal and their worth comes from their source. The message I speak of it is the eternal message, it's the nature of the human creation. It is our peace. The source has no beginning and no end. The source has power over all. So yes, it can turn the tide if He so wills.

The One who sends the message decides whose ears listen. He removes the veils from their hearts that they are able to absorb the power and infinite wisdom and beauty of the message. So if people refuse to listen, don't despair, but seek His help. We are responsible for only delivering the message to others, and of course practicing it ourselves.

If the message is delivered by those who don't believe it themselves, then it's a sad state for those individuals. But we can never know who truly believes and who doesn't. We can't see into the hearts of others, all we can do is look into our own hearts. So don't worry about what you can't control. Take care of yourself in the way that is congruent with the message. Each person is accountable for him/herself. We all have too many blemishes on our own hearts that to start a revolution for other hearts may not quite work or be of benefit. Wa Allahu'alim.

"Do you think that you will enter the Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suffering and adversity and were so shaken in spirit that even the Apostle and those of faith who were with him cried: 'When (will come) the help of God?' Ah! Verily the help of God is (always) near!" [2:214]

"Be mindful of God, and God will protect you. Be mindful of God, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of God. If you seek help, seek help of God. Know that if the whole world were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that God had already prescribed for you. And if the whole world were to gather together to harm you, it would harm you only with something that God has already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the ink has dried."
