Softness: Royalty

My love, be strong enough to be soft, your quintessential nature. Softness is the outcome of Surrender which is authentic power. Softness is love, it is the soul’s language, that’s why children respond to gentle beings, they speak the same language.

Softness is a sign of evolution so be shamelessly soft, female or male, it does not matter; you want to be loved, deeply? Be soft and you will know love, its varied manifestations will flock to you, they will gravitate toward you like the planets gravitate toward the Sun for its cosmic softness, the highest warmth known to the material world.

One who is soft cultivates love, men are pulled toward women so that they might get acquainted anew with their own innate softness, that sort of attraction shows how deep we long to explore our soul’s refinement. Mastery of the soul’s softness leads to stillness. The worldly in its coarse state, interprets stillness as laziness or idleness yet the highest form of activity happens in stillness: observe the sages (as), they have fallen through the bottomless pit of their soul so this blissful experience has made them so soft, their very presence heals their fellow beings…

Thus let us be soft so that our lives conditions can improve, let us be love! One of the attributes of The Divine is Al Latif, “The Most Subtle”, your lips brush this name and your ego vanishes, you soften and instantly become Royalty~

  1. Lovely and True, my friend. It is often Truth that is Lovely, the sweet, the subtle, the delicent and the silent. If I may quote an old sinner (me) and share a little pin that heaven dropped in my hair…

    24. Pretensions
    May Allah save me from faith’s pretensions
    And away from pretensions of no pretensions
    Until I become but a passing moment
    Indistinct from the rest of the ocean.

    Have a lovely Saturday, aida!

    TK.

  2. thanks for sharing these words Taufiq.
