Love and compassion are the fundamental ingredients of all religious dogmas.
The point is to practise them with your heart in spirituality.
The Quran has its overt/outer (worldly dimension) and covert/inner (spiritual dimension) … yang tersurat dan tersirat.
If you do not actualise them or are merely being ritualistic without the involvement of the heart, then what you get out of your prayers throughout the night is tiredness and sleepiness.
Or if you are fasting, then what you get is sheer hunger and thirst and nothing else.
Spirituality was once free and dynamic.
It came into existence before the onset of religious dogmas.
But religion through fettered religious bigots imprisoned spirituality with robotic rituals and power/political agendas.
Your soul/Spirit/Roh initiates innate primordial conscience and consciousness.
It offers humanity abstract attributes of love, happiness, justice, balance, compassion and truth.
They become the reference or starting points to delve into the quality of opposites in everyday life.
But these attributes remain hollow or dormant, and you will never find it if you search for it.
They only become real and meaningful when they emerge as a product of dialectical relationships between two entities or two groups of entities.
