E: Ego – Alphabet of Friendship

Where are you headed?
Where are you headed in the midst of this chaos;
The chaos of your own soul?
Where will you go when there is nowhere to go
Other than the path which makes you whole?
Will you still go?
Will you still go?
When all that you know stands as a barrier between you and your Beloved?
Indeed it is time,
Surely, it is time,
To let it all go,
To finally go where we must go,
And leave our ego behind.

Amir al-Mu’minin Ali ibn abi Talib (peace be upon him):
“A person’s amazement at himself is one of the enemies of his intellect.”

Nahj al-Balagha; Sharif al-Radi, Muhammad ibn Hussein (Published by Dar al-Hijra Foundation), Volume 1, p. 507.

أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ‏علی ابن ابی طالب‏ عليه السلام

عُجْبُ اَلْمَرْءِ بِنَفْسِهِ أَحَدُ حُسَّادِ عَقْلِهِ‏
