Having the Correct Notions

BismillahirRahmanirRahim,

“If Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) and His remembrance are present with you, your heart will certainly be filled with His nearness, and the notions suggested by Sheytan, the passions and this world will all avoid your company. There is a kind of notion belonging to this world, and a notion belonging to the hereafter. There is a notion belonging to the angels, a notion belonging to the ego, and a notion belonging to the heart. There is also a notion belonging to the Lord of Truth (Almighty and Glorious is He). It is therefore necessary for you, O truthful one, to get rid of all those other notions and to rely on the notion of the Lord of Truth (Almighty and Glorious is He). If you reject the notion of the ego, the notion of passions, Sheytan’s notion and the notion of this world, the notion of the hereafter will come to you. Then you will receive the angels’ notion, then finally the notion of the Lord of Truth (Almighty and Glorious is He). This is the ultimate stage.”
