Sheer “ignorance” and pure hypocrisy continue, as imposed by a (dwindling) minority force – those who have opportunities to utilize intelligence and available “knowledge” – but refuse to accept (awakening) winds of change. There are combinations, of course – where utilization and availability are realized (to degrees/stages), yet control, thus power, must (as some deem necessary) override – since freedom of access might infringe upon entitled goals.
Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 17: “Allah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and (their) foolishness and repent soon afterwards; To them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.” Jesus The Son of Man: ” “But I tolerate not the hypocrite, because he himself lays a yoke upon the guileless and the yielding.”
As noted/sung by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), “deceit kills the light.” If women and female children are denied equal education windows, what does that say/represent about the Fear in related men (and how far deceptions may shadow – over thousands of years, like stoning)? It is possible, while “On the Road to Find Out,” to “kick out the devil’s sin” and “pick up [a] good book” – without denying one’s growth through learning (advancements), and especially without denying others
Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 1: “He (Allah) created his mate of similar nature.” John 8:7: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” And, “He that is without sin among you, let him first [fire a gun] at her.”
Here is the Truth that invites.
Now is the Chance to realize.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends:
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years are like a day.”
((A Uniquely Moving Song, Gathering, and Message))
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
I had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom, boom
“Son,” he said, “Grab your things, I’ve come to take you home.”
(Hey back home)
To keeping silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.
“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.”
Happiness, Fulfillment, Passion,
The Uplifting Gifts, Shared:
How can they be more than imagined –
If the past plucks, grounds us
To a plane of the never to be dared?
In Seeking further,
In a continuance of Realizing Dreams –
This may lead us – to Everything.
Where there is Hope
There can be Growth,
For these are the buds that Spirit Wings.
Where there is a Song,
There can be Singing –
If we accept Awakenings of Chance.
Rewards are for the Soaring –
As we Unfold, Embrace,
In another cleansing Flight, and Dance.
(“A Time to Gather – A Time to Sing – A Time for a Song”)
