As she looks up, the rain gently showers upon her. Each drop gracefully swirls down wherever He wishes it to go: As a sign of His divine mercy, as a sign of His love, and a sign of life that was granted upon us. It is only His light that can bring our hearts back to life, while allowing our souls to blossom again after the bitterness of the cold winter months that left us broken behind.
“And He who sends down (from time to time) water from the sky in due measure, and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead. Even so will you be raised (from the dead).”
While she’s standing in the rain she tries to absorb His light in every possible way, allowing the wind to purify her being, while the rain washes away the density of the world that dragged her down. Such heaviness that took away the lightness of her own soul. Oh how she longs to be part of her Beloved in every possible way. To vanish in His divine ocean and be left with nothing but Him and only Him.
Allah is He Who sends forth the winds, so they raise a cloud, then He spreads it forth in the sky as He pleases, and He breaks it, so that you see the rain coming forth from inside it; then when He causes it to fall upon whom He pleases of His servants, lo! they rejoice.
[Al Qur’an 30:48]
It is her desire to just be the light spirit that she is, dancing on His divine melody, wherever He takes her. To flow like the river of Ganges in the direction that He desires, without being dragged away by others from her heart’s desire. It is her wish to fill her being with His light so she may send it towards all of His creations and thus she prays:
Ya Allah, the most Merciful, the Most kind. Ya Khuda, the light of my life and my Beloved – please take my hand and guide me towards Your Ocean. May Your wishes purify me completely, may Your chosen trials and tribulations break my heart over and over, until I am worthy of merging with you. Until I am completely purified and nothing is left of I, but only You. I pray that the rain you sent down upon us may purify us all, again and again. May it elevates our hearts, may it rekindle our spirits and fill our souls with magic and infinite blessings.
“And We send down from the sky rain chartered with blessing (…)
Ya Khuda I pray that Your mercy filled rain may remove the clouds of confusion from my heart and the heaviness of the world weighing down my soul. May it take away the voices that aren’t mine and empty my heart, soul and mind of all that doesn’t belong to me, so I may be able to feel my own light again and follow Your divine voice conveyed through my heart at every step I take.
And they said: my dearest one, there is nothing in this world that can take you away from Your light, nor from the Beloved. As your light is the Beloved and the Beloved is your light. All you need to do is to drown yourself in His Ocean, so you may rise as the divine and pure soul that you are. Burn yourself in His purifying fire, so you may merge with Him, but most of all, know that He is with you at all times. Sense Him through the rain that falls from the sky and through the wind that surrounds you at all times. His presence is hidden everywhere, while His voice echoes throughout the entire universe – if only you would hear, if only you would see. So seek Him and take a step back to connect to your inner being. The entire universe and all of His divine beings are waiting for you, ready to guide you along your path and ready to comfort you in times of need. So just call upon us and hold on to His light, and know that it is all going to be just fine. So keep your energy high and your thoughts positive, as fear conveys a message of lack of faith, whereas hope and belief are the keys to eternal happiness.
With my love and light,
