Dear Brother / Sister,
8.1.6-Peace in the Belief of a Muslim
There are three thoughts in quantum-based thinking. One is deep thought: consideration; one is transcendental emotion: meditation, and the other is contemplation: metacognition. That is, to think about thought, to think about what you think.
A person who can surrender to a high power, a high intelligence, can correct several psychiatric problems. He can cure his traumas, otherwise, he experiences a terrible rage. He experiences a terrible hatred and pain.
To be able do this is referred to as third wave psychotherapy (metacognitive treatment) in psychiatry. If a person believes, “There is an external force in the universe that understands me and knows me. He can help me”, he finds solace and understands his helplessness and weakness with this treatment technique.
I see that Muslims are not aware of the peace provided by their belief. It is so valuable.
A person who can surrender to a high power, a high intelligence, can correct several psychiatric problems. He can cure his traumas, otherwise, he experiences a terrible rage. He experiences a terrible hatred and pain. The person is relieved when he believes in the control of someone who knows everything. This is actually something that expresses the peace of the Muslim in his belief. I see that Muslims are not aware of the peace provided by their belief. It is so valuable. When you feel severely weak and powerless in the face of events, diseases, and disasters, there is an external power that knows everything, controls everything, has the key to everything, and controls everything. He hears me and he understands me. “There is an external power who knows everything, controls everything owns the keys to everything, and dominates and controls everything when I feel weak in the face of incidents, diseases and misfortunes. He hears and understands me.” When you think like that, you feel very peaceful and relieved as if a rope comes down from the sky to save you when you are alone in a jungle.
That is peace that belief gives man. It is a great source of peace for the people who are hit by misfortunes. In fact, more than 50% of people are hit by misfortunes. Weak, poor and disadvantaged people amount to 50%. The 50% strong people in the society are not aware of it, but at some point in their life they will realize it.
Therefore, Mawlana used the way of love to reach Allah. However, Badiuzzaman Said Nursi states the following: “They seek a way that is more effective than love to reach Allah; ‘use the way of weakness, poverty and meditation’.”
In this age, anyone who understands the weakness of love can find Allah more easily; but if he finds God in love, he may be confused in that way because there are many things that can mislead love. There are false sheikhs and so on. Many things can mislead people, but the way of weakness and poverty is more appealing to the people of this age. He can reach it with deep thought. This Quantum idea. Social entropy, lies, evil. Is evil in Pandora’s box now?
