The world has this crazy habit of trying to pull you back towards it the moment you try to make it beyond its force field. Gravity against spirituality, I like to call it.
You might think you’ve made it; freed yourself from the shackles of pure materialism and internalized a larger reality. But maybe the earth hates it when you think that way.
There is no escape velocity from the realm of materialism.
I have seen people rise and then fall.
I have seen people committing themselves to the worship of Allah SWT; praying 5 times a day; fasting Sunnah fasts; taking up modesty; worrying less about money and fame; and then, all of a sudden, losing that connection.
Like a rope that snaps from too much pressure.
And that is what I fear.
I fear losing pupose. Losing hope. Losing myself.
