attribute of being able to keep secrets has an important
influence on the social life and on the lives of the indiviuals
as well. Therefore, this is a subject that deserves to be
emphasized much. Keeping a secret is another version of
assimilation (such as assimilating the knowledge etc.) Actually,
it is much more broader and when one is applying for such a
thing he cannot foresee what kind of things he is going to
face. It may be difficult for a human being to pay the price
for such a load. For this reason, it is only possible to give a
secret to a respectable person who does change his attitude
and burst out no matter how negative the events are.
Keeping a secret can be done only by those people who have self
confidence. Also, we can observe that only the Nabi(s) and the
Rasul(s) who are accepted as the represantatives of Allah and
the saints of higher levels have the attribute of keeping
secrets. So, this shows openly that
this concept is not a simple/ordinary thing.
simplest sense, the biggest secret in being able to keep a
secret is to stay away from being too much sincere with
people, establishing too close relationships and very strong
very difficult to keep secrets in love relations. Someone who
has a bond of love with another may want to know more about
him/her and with a rather sarcastic attitude and a very soft
teasing s/he can pull the secret out of the mouth of the one
who is trying to keep it.
when the individuals become more sincere and close with each
other, then this prepares the means for the secrets to burst
inexperienced people who are dealing with the mystic philosophy
can tell about everything which should not be told to others
simply for the sake of inflating their ego. This shows that
they will never be able to establish a bond with the truth.
Regarding this point Hz.Mawlana has told an individual ‘’You
are me, because if you do not become me, then a friendship
cannot be established and private secrets cannot be shared.’’
other hand, the truth lying behind giving a secret to those
people who are highly capable in the mystical field is related
to the giving of fath/conquerence (a very high state of
absolute experience of cosmic consciousness). If, the
mystically capable individual can keep the secret, then he will
be given the fath/the conquerence. An individual who has
attained this state of mind becomes a saint with duty or a
saint in charge.
said that he has a ‘’duty’’, because most of the saints are
not aware of the fact that they have attained this perfection
in the consciousness, in other words they are not aware of the
fact that they have become saints.
and the Rasul(s) are given first the fath/the conquerence and
then the secret, whereas the saints are given first the secret
and then the fath/the conquerence which is the most precious
thing in the world that one can have.
opinion, this is because the Nabi(s) and the Rasul(s) have an
extremely high capacity of assimilation (to understand the
facts/ the knowledge very well and use them properly) and they
have been refined from all the feelings pertaining to the
standard humans and they do their duty according to the divine
point of importance is that some of the actions of these high
level esteemed people may look like a mistake to us as it is in
the example of Hz.Adam. However, in actual fact all of these
actions are made in accordance with the destiny. Therefore,
there cannot be any mistake/ or wrong doing. We should not
forget that the individual who has the secret keeps his
balance even under very severe and difficult conditions.
that such conditions are teaching us a lot.
