Description

Only a burning furious passion, almost verging on madness for God, can push the soul forward so that it reaches the inconceivable and indescribable Lord. An ardent lover will always be so completely absorbed in his love for his Beloved that he cannot psychologically entertain any other love. This kind of exclusive love for God is much encouraged by all monotheistic religions such as Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

Not only in the Islamic mystical traditional but also in the Christian and Hindu ones there are instances of annihilation in God wherein the mystic is insensible to physical pain. By surrendering ourselves to God we allow Him to decide the course of our lives. Such surrender is the best that we can do: it is indeed the very essence of Contemplative Prayer.
