Only for You | Ali Reza Panahian
Only for You
Your motivation should only be Me. Your encouragement should only be from Me. Even your punisher should only be Me. You should only be afraid of Me. What’s the meaning of sincerity? A tradition says, “Sincerity is the highest point of religion.” “Sincerity means that you do deeds only because of Me (God), and you don’t do them under the influence of anyone else! If even 1% of it is done under the influence of others, I won’t accept it at all!”
How important is spiritual independence in motivation? “God! Take it easy. I did this because of You. If it wasn’t because of You and Imam Husayn (‘a), I wouldn’t have done any of these at all. I swear I did it because of You. I love You!” God replies, “Yes, but when you were coming out of the meeting someone encouraged you and you became a little happy.” “But this was only 1% of it!” “No, I won’t accept any of it. Come next time.” “But God, 99.99% of it was because of You! 0.01% was ruined because of my heart! You know the heart becomes dependent.” “It’s not accepted.” The Kind God says, “I won’t accept it.”
After you (audience) go, I’ll negotiate and talk to God! But, no matter how much we insist, God won’t accept. God says, “I’m a good partner. Did you choose another partner?” “God, believe me…!” God replies, “Don’t insist. People are watching you! Go. This wasn’t accepted. Do it again. Your motivation and encouragement should only be from Me. Even your punisher should only be Me. You should only be afraid of Me.” This is amazing!
