Sometimes a void digs so deep into your heart, even a breath becomes difficult. You become vulnerable to the external pressures of this world. Materialistic desires and worldly concerns begin seeping into your mind and soul until the slightest push or the softest wind can break you. This is your spirituality screaming for help. It is starving, neglected and forgotten. This is when you dim the lights, close the doors and lift your hands in prayer and repentance. You have wronged yourself for having forgotten He who has never forgotten you.
We live such prideful lives thinking that we could self-sustain. We may be able to feed our bodies, still under the shade and mercy of our Sustainer. But only He can feed our soul. To Him we belong, to Him we shall return and to Him we entrust our internal chaos.
