Indulging in security

Indulging in security is contrary to intimacy with God. It gives a temporary feeling of wellbeing, but puts happiness forever out of reach, for it destroys spiritual life and ruins the man who indulges in it by making him waste his time. And when he finally reluctantly comes back to himself, empty-handed, he realizes he never received anything. ~Ibn Arabi

Let go

Surrender, let go of sight and reason
and walk the pathless path.
Stay in your own loss without wanting,
without knowing, without desiring anything.
Live like a child without a care in the world,
not even the care to do God's work.
~Madame Guyon: Christian and Spiritual Discourses Concerning Inner Life
