9:33…associator’s hate

هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ

He is the One who sent His messenger with guidance and the truthful obligation/debt, so that it prevails over all obligations/debts however hateful this may be to those who associate or give a share [to something or someone as the one to whom something is owed by me]

I have found that since I stopped entertaining the obligation to learn from self-appointed human teachers (sometimes avowing themselves to be seekers of truth but wanting in the process to teach others how they are all wrong and dont/cant have the answers that this seeker himselr or herself is allegedly still seeking) and turned to my maker’s message to me as my only teacher, there is hate directed at this attitude. THere is hate for not recognizing and acknowledging that one no longer needs other creatures to tell one what questions to ask, what concepts to use to think about life and meaning, how to tell what is true or not and when to see/feel oneself being taught the truth.

Truth is sent. it arrives. it arrives when messangers arrive – message bearers that say that nothing is owed to them because they are message bearers – the water, the sun, the earth, the air, other humans, the wisdom and compassion in actions and relations – when they say that they tell me about my God and have no share in all that I love in them. That the obligation to love what is loved and lovable – an existential obligation i am already fulfilling – is truthfully the praise and glorification of the sustainer and maker of all, without any share for anyone else. This truth guides me out of my otherwise suffocating and soul-wrenching humiliation and neediness before other creatures like me. But the one who wants a share of the good and loved for himself or for something hates this. this hate has roots in his love of what is beloved. He just doesn’t see that surrendering the beloved to the eternal source is the only way to not create the false obligation to honor and love that which is limited and perishing.

whether i repeat with empty words that I am guided to truth by my maker but do not actually feel guided and do not understand what truth is and how it is true or whether I mean it and i am actually guided by message-bearers shall remain between me and my maker. hate of the associator is their witnessing that something valuable and truthful has come to someone but, because of their own refusal to hear the message, not to them…yet..
