Between my shadow and my soul

"And they ask you about the Soul"... (Quran 17:85)




The time when Body met Soul,
Shivers of fear and despair attacked its spine
As it realised the immensity of Serving God
Through a creation so magnificent, beautiful and eternal

Every moment then is a struggle for Body to accept
That only through Soul, it too becomes
Magnificent, beautiful and eternal as well

The time when Mind Met Soul, it
Clammed within itself, constricted by
Awe and appalled by apprehension in
Serving God through comprehending
Magnificence, Beauty and Eternity

Expanding your Soul is Impossible
It is the most expansive entity in the Universe
Inspire Body and Mind to aspire to such...

But shrinking the soul is entirely possible – because it has to inhabit a shared space with the body. With that limited space, the more you grow the body (via fulfillment of every whim and fancy), the more the body grows – cramping the soul more and more.

Interesting piece – which quickly reminded me of the concept of the body-soul balance that I heard so much about in a tasawwuf series a while ago…

Yes I'm currently grappling with how much power I give my body and mind to the neglect of my soul. Thanks :)
