i love beaches. who doesnt?
it is made as a sign from Him. the creation is vast, endless, intricate and mysterious in a way that we never know. nevertheless, it is a very beautiful creation. the sound of the waves as they hit the pure white sand simply becomes a melody that is pleasing to the ear, somehow it has the power to calm even the most disturbed mind. the homogenous color of blue green it emits is pleasing to the eye, it also adds to the serenity. oh, wait until you see the sun sets on the horizon, nobody can take their eyes off the view. the yellow orange hue it gives off, plus when the gentle breeze strokes our face.. tell me how can one not love this?
i always find it magical.
yet, underneath that beauty, we can never underestimate the power they held, and i think fishermen would agree with me. in the middle of the ocean, there's hardly calmness. the waves become foe, no longer gentle and pleasing. underneath, it seems bottomless. an abyss. nobody can predict the depth of the sea. comparing my dimension to the deep sea, that's just irrelevant. metaphorically i would be microscopic compared to the ocean. the ocean is very very big. word does no justice to picture the vastness of the ocean.
and that's just one simple creation of my great god, Allah. i just can't imagine how powerful the Creator is. He is of course, greater than His creations. servant? now it feels that i am less than that. how can an ordinary person like me be a servant to the great god Allah. i am less than that.
nevertheless, my lust for the world denies the fact that i am just a servant. i am beguiled by the world, ignoring the fact that i will eventually return to Him and live in the hereafter permanently. Ya Allah, forgive me again.. and again..
