Many thanks for your comments, Dvora.

It is sometimes better to experience harsh criticism, skepticism and wrath of others, for it grounds the self and prevents the ego to rise, as commending it (the self) often tends to do.

My postings will need to stop very soon as I find myself repeating.

But if they have helped someone to see that there are many faces of Muslims and Islam, especially that there is someone who sees "islam" as an inner reality than as an outer label, then perhaps it has been worth it. Otherwise, it doesn't matter. Either way, I have learned a thing or two myself.

Take care, and know that the light is already within you. Once you have found it and have allowed it to shine on your self to so that it reflects its higher patterns and qualities, then that's what life is all about. But know the pitfalls of the journey of the self too.
