words that haven't been spoken. actions that have and haven't been taken. thoughts that came to mind through inspiration. lessons that were learned after being mistaken. towards writing I hasten. peace be on you ツ
I think I find it funny that the last time I wrote was about giving them a piece of your mind. Letting it out and show that you were not blind.But then you never know in tomorrow what will you find. In a month you can turn blind. By that I don’t mean literally but by this world that you have been racing behind. This heart of yours constantly reminds. But from one thing to another through out the day… you don’t have time?
So you struggle day by day… just few minutes to yourself … just some thoughts… just to make sense of what is really on your mind. Running from one thing to another, keeping yourself together that nine to five grind. You complain to yourself, others around you and they try to be kind. But where is that peace of mind?!
You leave one thing for another, try to fit it all and a thought from the past runs through your mind. Where once you wanted to be busy, you wanted a routine, you got what you wanted? Oh wow? Your God is Most Kind (Surah Al-Hajj). You still have the nerves to sit here and complain that you don’t have time? When you once wanted it all, why are you so blind?
Being grateful for it all is where you will find that peace of mind. What you have been searching for, what your heart to you is trying to remind. Sometimes to get peace of mind you need to give yourself a piece of your own mind. Because truly your God is Most Kind. He is Most Kind.
Countless lessons you keep learning as His blessings He sends. To be wise is one thing but there was a time on this world you continued to spend. You were searching for happiness as if it is a worldly trend. Till you realized that it is all a game to pretend. Till you learned that we are all the same and on each other we can’t really depend. Till you felt the happiness from giving just for God’s sake and the times a helping hand you lend. Till you started having conversations with people you didn’t know as if for many years you have been friends…
Awhile back when I was in love with this world I wrote if you see the same moon as I see tonight how far are you from me anyway. Though tonight I realize that I just didn’t understand the case. I wanted the world so I was spending my nights all awake. Its like there was a need to win because all around me there was a race. When you find everyone running around you …you start searching for support. That’s when you fall in love with things and people who are riding the same boat. You start depending on them and they become your hope. As the attachment grows through it you see the light. You see it everywhere in the sun or moon and everything nice. Then all of a sudden something breaks… its a shock at first then it happens again and again. That attachment is breaking…
How I spent my weekend and where my thoughts led me to think about the differences…
If someone came down today to give you a $5 bill. Would you feel the same happiness as a beggar sitting on the street and the same thrill? If like some people we had only one water bottle to drink, would we still waste it and not care about those spills. If we had almost nothing to eat… would we care about others first or our stomachs we would still want to fill?
The thought is that it is not easy to put your hands out in front of someone. The people who do it, there are probably many times they want to get up from that spot and run. They ask each person that passes by and we all sometimes ignore because we have ‘better’ things that need to be done. We often have those thoughts that why can’t they get up and go do something, it is not like they can’t do none? They loose their self respect doing this and their shoulders probably weigh a ton. And we pass by telling ourselves, turn your face to the other side hun.
Poor people are often the most generous, they say. Perhaps if they get a lot of wealth, they might change today. They might even start having the same thoughts that we have sometimes and think of them in the same way. So I guess it is the wealth in the end that gets the blame? We change because we have some dollars in our hands, such a shame. Truly in a second we can fly and fall down on the ground, that is this world’s game. The differences we create between ourselves are just the starting flames. What is our aim? Do we want to be well-known, have all that money and the fame? Or are we the humble and generous ones, is that how people remember us and know our name?
Getting inspired by these yummy ice cream truffles on a rainy day.
It is hard for us to face rejection. Because around us we want no negativity and from others always want to see affection. There are many times we don’t even want something but when we get rejected by it we want to compete. Why didn’t I get selected, Why didn’t they pick me… that wanting of always being on top and others we want to beat. Not realizing that we got rejected by this because there is something better waiting for us down the street.
You can keep tasting chocolates till you eat the one that tastes best out of all. You will keep getting rejected until you have enough experience to still stand tall. You will keep getting rejected at interviews till you reach the one job that is meant to be yours. You will keep facing rejection till you reach that person you are actually made for. You will keep asking for help in something and getting rejected till you knock on that one door. And you will keep failing that test over and over again till you get enough practice to get the highest score.
It is hard for us to face rejection because we always want to win. It doesn’t matter if we don’t even want that thing. We still busy ourselves with competing, loosing our sleep over it and making our heads spin. We get rejected only because there is something better for us at end. Think back to your life today and all those rejections through which you have been. Would you have all that you have today, or all that you did achieve if you stopped at that thing? We always think we know what is best for us but it is actually God who knows it all (Surah al-baqarah) and that is how it has always been. But sadly we forget it every time by competing, because this world we are trying to win.
A nice view. A good read. An inspiration to write. A long weekend. A clean kitchen; Home is where the heart is.
Competition in worldly things diverts you (Surah At-Takathur).
You can try competing with someone else running after this world only to find at the end that something else came along new. You can keep running after one thing only to find that one day it doesn’t have the same value. You turn towards God and this world comes chasing after you. But when you keep trying to achieve the worldly things you stomach never gets filled all the way through. We want so many things around us but we are also scared that someone will take it away from me or you. So we try to hide it, keep secrets or compete each other even though we are tired of it… isn’t that true? It is a constant chase of achieving everything that comes in our view. But that one time you let someone else have what you wanted the happiness you felt from doing that nobody else knows but you.
Let them have this world because truly it has no value. The more you run away from this world the more it will come chasing after you. So in the end you have everything you wanted and so much more than that because that is what this world is trying to do. Forcing you to get caught up and forget about what is to come after and the broader view. It is very easy I admit to get caught up in this world and chase after these worldly things that looks beautiful to look up to. That new cellphone, that job, the car and those new shoes. It is a never ending list of all the things that I want to hold in my hands giving them so much value. And then we complain when our hearts break because the worldly thing didn’t last as long as we expected it to. We are stressed we are struggling while competing it is sad but it is true. So Let them have this world because truly it has no value. Look at the bigger picture instead of that one worldly thing just so you can see clearly you own path that you need to walk towards to.
Today go let someone else have something that you really wanted even if it is a cookie, your seat in the bus, that last slice of the pizza and let me know of the feeling that you felt of your heart feeling satisfied and smiling all the way through. Let them have this world because clearly this competition is stressful and these worldly things are diverting you.
You have the money to buy it all but can you buy me the sun? You won’t get this in your hands no matter how close to it you run. Control what you spend on those enjoyments that you call fun. There are some who are working so hard just to be rich they call it a chase I guess they like to run. We need money in order to live but does that mean we need to live for the sake of money … just answer that one.
They say money changes you as soon as you get it in your hands. It is when you show to the world that finally I can buy this and that. It is when you buy all these worldly things and you carry it around just so your wallet can look big and fat. What is the purpose of that? Just tell me about the happiness you feel while you are doing that? Those people that change because of the money in the hands. I am talking about the ones that think lowly of others and think they are now something grand. The ones who are walking around with those materialistic things just wanting for someone to praise and give it a second glance.
Here is the news it is not now that they changed in to that but rather they were always the same. Just because they didn’t have money in their hands they didn’t know how to display. It is true money can either ruin you or your life it can make. There are those people too that turn more humble and soft and want to spend it all in a good cause for God’s sake.
Now Think over which one will you be if you were to find a million dollars one day by the lake? Will you be the humble or the proud one today? Control your thoughts it turn into actions just so you can realize the reality and stay awake. You will never be able to feel happiness from that worldly run. Because it is the inner satisfaction only that can buy you the sun.
I was just having a conversation with someone I know. They keep talking and telling me how the story goes. if they were rumours, stories or the truth God knows. Judging others because of what they chose. I stayed quiet most of the time because there is no point arguing with a fool. who is trying to put religion down just because they want to fit and look cool. What to expect in this world nobody bothers teaching us that in school. after the conversation ended I thought of probably how I am judged. I know people judging you shouldn’t matter just because… but it is always good to reflect on yourself take a minute to pause. Because how one person will act creates a image for the whole group. so much responsiblity on your shoulder it goes round and round in a loop. If one person chooses to cover up people talk… why did she do that whats the reason and you know they ask. Then if someone does the total opposite and does something wrong exposes themselves … what is going on their life people still talk. It is a never ending story I guess its sad to say. sometimes makes you want to hide or run away. there are people among us who like to expose what they do. show off to the world that look we are cool.Speaking good or remaining silent (Hadith Sahih Bukhari) is something we should all look into.
we all slip and fall but what matters is how once again we stand tall. being interested in other people’s lives and what happend 5 years ago… why do you care please explain it to me once and for all? These are the times where I wish to get away. Thank God for not making me of those that are led astray (Surah Fatiha). I admit that in this world it is very easy to get lost… and by other people back and forth get tossed. Why do we judge so easily before even knowing what going on at all? Why do we worry so much over how others think by saying “but they talk”? If someone is trying to change for the better why do we discourage them by assuming what happend this and that. If someone does something wrong why based on that one thing we know we call them a brat? Maybe they are closer to God then you ever been. Maybe they have changed because they saw something you never seen. no matter how close we are to eachother we don’t know how it is like to walk in their shoes. and we still go on everyday practicing verbal abuse… why are we judging eachother because of what we choose?
Those are the times I wish to put this world around me on a block… the clock keeps ticking and they still talk. it has become a habit sadly to stalk… because they want to have something so they can talk. but don’t you worry if they talk. no matter what you do they still talk.
this creation so tempting we always want to chase. Be the type of person yourself that everyone wants to chase. But being chased as your purpose? don’t let it be that case. Balance your priorities and live for you and God. Those that matter will stick by you, and those that don’t will decide to walk off. While they are walking away they will do something to make you fall. To make you feel bad about yourself and your decisions while you stand tall. The best thing is to become independent and free of want. you are stronger than you think yup that’s all!
