“Knock, And He'll open the door
Vanish, And He'll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He'll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He'll turn you into everything.”
I enjoyed this quote as I have been knocking on Gods or heavens door recently to deal with the problems I have had in life. I always feel that becoming nothing in adversity and knocking on the door of the divine brings the situation alive where you can receive help from the divine.
Falling to your own faults or the actions of others always means that for trying to be a divine servant he raises you to the heavens. He is the one that is important as all others can lie about you and try to judge you but he knows eternal truth and what others have done and what you have done. All the manipulation of evil in the world can not hide the truth from God just as good is more powerful than evil.
Bigotry turns the person being abused into nothing. People act evil to them and then try to blame the persons race or status and use their own race and status as superior. It is not true as those who abuse and torture others are always the ones with an inferiority complex. They desire attention and use hate and cruelty to get that attention.
The intervention of the divine and submitting yourself to the divine as nothing is what is powerful. By being nothing he raises you to everything that he wants for you. Since the divine always wants the best living in divine love and truth brings everything to you. You as the abused and tortured person vanish and shine like the sun as a new person that the divine knows the truth about no matter who misrepresents you on this earth.
