IN TOO DEEP

Can't describe it. Yet can still feel it. All words are not enough to translate it. So I will leave it where it is.

Now I know why jesus was only one word.

I just noticed that I talk about jesus a lot. I am not christian and I am not going to say that Islam demands us to praise jesus. This is shallow. We dont respect or connect with someone or something because we are 'asked to' do so yet because we feel guided to doing so. Feel the longing of doing so.

I am not even going to go into the divinity of jesus, being the father or the son or god. I simply don't care about this theology. He is what he is/was/will be. Fiha ma fiha. With all my respect and disrespect to all religions. But sure jesus will always remain a mystery as long as Love is not yet deciphered.

I think I need to trace how jesus is described in the Coran. I tried doing this once, but I was lost.

Thank you, Mo and Highlander! I really didnt expect it to be that mysterious! You know, it is just me talking my inside and how I see things. It is not always pleasant.

Well, Highlander, the answer to your question is: I don't know. Really. Maybe I dont love him passionately enough... but I dont know how to do so.

Mo, we dont long for any person, we long for the quality they carry.

Everyone carries qualities. And allah carries 99 qualities (not names) as they teach us in Islam. So we long for these qualities in God, and when we taste them all, we long for the One.

I am a little unstable here!!

"but I dont know how to do so."

No one does Haal. It just comes naturally. If it doesn't, then something's wrong.
