Pondering the general nature of the world prevents a holy traveler from being involved in matters that are not important. A holy traveler always dedicates their thought to the existence and general affairs, like contemplating the creation of the sky, the earth, the reality of the soul, and similar topics. Hence, they will no longer pay attention to the limited desires of their soul. Therefore, they would absolutely cut themselves off from their deceiving passions and desires.
Ayatollah Mohammad Saleh Komeily (God graciously preserves him)
