”Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.” -Hazrat InayatKhan.
I’ve been extremely depressed. I added a negativity-loaded post that I later deleted because honestly, I was ashamed to have lost faith. This quote really marked the end of the dark tunnel I have been ensnared in for the last two days. While going through the ‘Blogs I fillow’, I saw this quote and also, a picture of an artist in her work place with all her paintings around her and more importantly, a content smile on her face. It doesn’t matter what college I get in. Infact, I did get in. I did not have the financial resources. I still have a goal and I’m the one who has to make life beautiful for myself and my fellow human beings. The fancy college is the beautiful place in my mind, I shouldn’t be looking for it….I should be creating a beautiful place. My work defines me and if God Wills, I will do something for my country with all the resources available. To make my life beautiful, I must wake up with the picture of that artist in my mind and hope for the day to be a joyride.
”Just give your best and leave the rest for Allah”
The words echoed in my mind as I sought to truly delve into the depth of this message that I received from my teacher in the morning. A stranger passed by smiling, the wind shuffled he leaves, the air conditioner made disturbing noises. Random notions and emotions flew in and out of my soul as I tried to concentrate on my Physics lesson. Resonance. It is the phenomena that occurs when a system moves with maximum displacement when the driving frequency is equal to the natural frequency of the system. Physics jargon, I know alot of people might not follow it…but then and there, I resonated. The system here is me and the DRIVING frequency is the working frequency of my natural surroundings. When I accumulated those random notions arising from the natural occurences around me to find myself in each and every thing, feeling, smell, sound around me, my frequency became the same as the frquency of the system around me. In that state of tranquility, I found the answer to the Physics question.
So I work at my best when the light of my heart shines on everything around me, when I am resonating with nature.
I hope it helps all of you when you are wanting with all your heart to give your best but just can’t figure out how.
