Finding pearls in the ocean
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
I love when I'm talking to someone and the intellectual chemistry is just flowing. When you guys build off each other and start thinking on levels you didn't even know you could reach. It's mind stimulating and gives you a rush of energy. And after that conversation is over you think of all the gems you have learned. The excitement of taking in their message and you're fortunate that they revealed it to you. Alhamdulilah. You're overwhelmed with gratitude and wish every conversation could be like that.
The rareness of those moments are like finding pearls in the ocean. Than on the opposite side of the spectrum you have those times you're talking to someone and spilling out your beads of knowledge. You're waiting eagerly and anticipating for them to do the same. But to your dismay they don't contribute or tell you anything worth knowing. As the optimist I am, I would say you refreshed your memory and inshAllah gave that person something to think about. Its all about passing on that knowledge.
I look at people and wonder what kind of incredible information do they know? And what kind of conversations will trigger that person to open up and reveal their gems to me? Surely people don't spew out knowledge you want to know. You have to be patient and be willing to give some of your pearls before such a miraculous phenomenon happens. It's a give and take kind of thing. The path of knowledge unites and connects the hearts of the believers. What a great blessing, Alhamdulilah. On blog-land you guy's are constantly posting notes that are very beneficial and inspiring. I enjoy reading them and I can't thank you all enough for sharing your pearls of knowledge with me! I love you all for the Sake of Allah.
I am a seeker of truth and the best form of Haq. The kind that awakens the very essence of your being. It brings life to your soul and enlightens your path to Jennah. It's the piece of the puzzle that leads success.
