The Lord Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”(Matthew 5:8, NIV). The Bible says, “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”(Hebrews 12:14, NIV). It is obvious from the above verses that to be holy and to have a pure heart, are one and the same thing. Those whose hearts are pure are holy. Those whose hearts are impure are unholy. Only those whose hearts are pure will see God. Those whose hearts are not pure will not see God. Those whose hearts are not pure will not be in the holy city at the end. The Bible says, “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practises falsehood.”(Revelation 22:14-15). Is your heart pure? In other words: Will you be in heaven? Will you see God? This book is written to help you to answer “yes” to these questions. God bless you exceedingly as you read it.

"Hassib, herself an Egyptian immigrant living in West Virginia, articulates the full-bodied chorus of Egypt's voices." --The New York Times Book Review "Exquisite. . . . Anchoring the story is a pair of Cairo-born sisters whose fates spin in radically different directions in the wake of the Egyptian revolution. . . . A lovely novel that does a remarkable job of bringing troubling realities to light, and life." --Vanity Fair A Real Simple Best Book of the Year (So Far) A powerful novel about two Egyptian sisters--their divergent fates and the secrets of one family Sisters Rose and Gameela Gubran could not have been more different. Rose, an Egyptologist, married an American journalist and immigrated to New York City, where she works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gameela, a devout Muslim since her teenage years, stayed in Cairo. During the aftermath of Egypt's revolution, Gameela is killed in a suicide bombing. When Rose returns to Egypt after the bombing, she sifts through the artifacts Gameela left behind, desperate to understand how her sister came to die, and who she truly was. Soon, Rose realizes that Gameela has left many questions unanswered. Why had she quit her job just a few months before her death and not told her family? Who was she romantically involved with? And how did the religious Gameela manage to keep so many secrets? Rich in depth and feeling, A Pure Heart is a brilliant portrait of two Muslim women in the twenty-first century, and the decisions they make in work and love that determine their destinies. As Rose is struggling to reconcile her identities as an Egyptian and as a new American, she investigates Gameela's devotion to her religion and her country. The more Rose uncovers about her sister's life, the more she must reconcile their two fates, their inextricable bond as sisters, and who should and should not be held responsible for Gameela's death. Rajia Hassib's A Pure Heart is a stirring and deeply textured novel that asks what it means to forgive, and considers how faith, family, and love can unite and divide us.

In America, we live in a fast-paced, self-indulgent society of pleasure-seeking people who predicate their lifestyles on consumer-oriented and materialistic notions. Influenced by this world around us, our hearts may become faithless, dishonest, deceptive, distressed, and, at times, evil. Hence, our hearts become damaged. However, in the quiet of our solitude, we can deeply reflect on how to become devout and pious as we awaken the pure heart. In Awaken the Pure Heart, author Tallal Alie Turfe explains that while the heart pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins called the cardiovascular system, it is also the spiritual control center of lifethe very center of our existence, and the very essence of who we are. The heart is the center of the soul. It is the seat of our emotional intelligence, intention, and desires, and it is the point of our personal contact with God as He judges. By looking to the Quran as a healing source and by slowing down and reflecting in solitude through prayer and supplication, we too can restore our hearts and the hearts of others. The heart is more than the most important organ in the human body. It is also the quintessence of our spiritual and emotional well-being. Acceptance causes the heart to be elated or jubilant, while rejection causes the heart to be saddened or troubled. Thus, by listening to our hearts, we can discover how to embrace its purity and live with virtue in the modern world.

The Pure Heart of Acceptance

I have started the practice of acceptance more as a necessity than a spiritual pursuit. I was in a situation where I really needed to change my life and the things around me, and I understood that only the practice of acceptance can get me out of my situation. As days and months passed by, I noted different passages from what I understood and after 2 years I compiled out of them the book that you are presently reading. There is not much to say about acceptance, so the book is not lengthy but rather compressed as information, but I made sure that I have explained every detail of the process I underwent. As a bonus, or better said as a surprise that happened in my practice of acceptance, I discovered that by practicing it, the heart opens so that you can see the world in its pure and pristine quality. Therefore, I also adapted the title to include it, naming it instead of "The Path Of Acceptance" to "The Heart of Acceptance". There is a lot written in this book about the open heart of acceptance, and I even dedicated a full chapter to it. I hope you will enjoy my book and gain the courage and attitude to practice it yourself. Namaste.

Truth descends like dew from heaven into the pure heart

Truth descends like dew from heaven into the pure heart

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Éliphas Lévi. TRUTH THROBS IN THE PURE HEART ... Truth is known but to the few; the rest, unwilling to withdraw the veil from their own hearts, imagine it blinding the eyes of their neighbour.

The rational part of man, being divine, knows. The irrational part, so-called reason, speculates. Swedenborg was natural-born seer, not an initiated adept. But his interpretation of the first chapter of Genesis is the same as that of the Hermetic philosophers. Eugenius Philalethes had never attained “the highest pyrotechny,” but he defined the “philosopher’s stone” spiritually, as Triune Unity. Man is also a “stone,” physically, the effect of Divine Cause which is the Universal Solvent. The great sages of antiquity, those of the mediæval ages, and the mystical writers of our more recent times, were all Hermetists. Truth is known but to the few; the rest, unwilling to withdraw the veil from their own hearts, imagine it blinding the eyes of their neighbour. Instead of saying that God “made” man after His own image, we ought in truth to say that man anthropomorphises God, i.e., he imagines “God” after his own image. The subject of the Hermetic art is man, and the object of the art is the perfection of man. Sympathy is the offspring of light, and antipathy is a shadow from the abyss of darkness, says the Paracelsian physician. Elementals are the spirits of the four elements of the terrestrial world. Forms come and pass but the ideas that created them and the material which gave them objective existence remain. Privation is not considered in Aristotelean philosophy as a principle in the composition of bodies, but as an external property in their production; for production is a change by which the matter passes from the shape it has not, to that which it assumes.
