Explore thyself!

Standard

Hello, fellow humans!

It has been a long, long time since I posted here. This time of abnegation was not easy for me too but yesterday, in a moment of ‘self-forgetfulness’, I came up with this drawing and the message above entails the gyst of the story of my writer’s block. Once I discover I’m good at something or that people benefit from what I do, I start to lose the ‘involunary’ element of the act. It becomes a part of a sickening routine. The sublime aspect of writing is the sincerity of emotion and in this torpor, writing/blogging is a sin.

So…solution? First, I needed to clear my mind by leaving all problems to God. Then, I put myself in the present and notice what things make my heart excited about life. I needed to get the blog out of the comma so I started to explore myself this way. For instance, if I watched TV, I watched myself from outside to know what are the things that make my heart jump.

My work is only meaningful if it is connected to society in any way. Anything outside this set, holds no value for me. Doing things for the sole purpose of entertainment (like playing games online) just drains away spirit.

Hey, don’t be dumb!

Standard

Dumb?

No one is dumb. Everyone has talent and intellect. But. There are moments when I see people being dumb. Being absolutely out of their minds- very very 😦 and cranky! The only reason people stoop to that is that they do not use their brains as much as they should. You need to be smart and figure out the art of happiness. My dad always says that. So look around, find reasons, find logic….and the result: THANKFULNESS.

In the end, you’ll be thankful.

So…be smart, be happy.

🙂

P.S. For me, I always use my brain to pretend, to pretend that everything is perfect and this day is a gift. I constantly use my mind to emboss that idea. Speaking to myself, I finally start believing and I start thanking God.

 

Unclockable!

What time really is

Time is unclockable

I read an article in The Guardian by Jay Griffith titled ‘Clock time can play havoc with your emotions’; reading the article entailed an emotional upheaval…that liberating, flying sensation you get upon receiving an insight. Science agrees that creativity requires our mind to wander so why do we keep making to-do-lists and schedules- insurances of getting things done- and sacrifice the quality of our work that may result from spontaniety? I have discussed the same thing in a post before (about the quote from The Holy Quran that a believer must  live in moments..in the present) but time and time again, I keep falling for this trap of Clocking everything. Obsession with perfection may be the convict here so getting rid of this ugly habit will take time and until then, I will keep posting about clock-addiction (:

So today, the only thing occupying my mind is my action plan to implement on the beautiful words of this article…

ACTION PLAN

1.Transform yourself into a radar: Receive the message that the universe is sending, listen to your heart..where is it gliding? The universe sows the seed of inspiration in everyone of us everyday. The seed then grows and becomes a plant- the action.

2.Let the plant grow: Now do what the universe demands from you.

Usually during the action, I play some adventurous/happy music in my head, like the Glee cover of Whitney Houston’s It’s not right but it’s okay

RESULT

Happiness 🙂

Hope this result is the same for all of you.

I have a folder

I have a folder of dreams-Courtesy:

 

I keep a folder in my cell phone. Everyday, I delete some photos and add some. These photos are all the wonderful photographs and quotes that I see on tumblr, facebook, flickr and other social networks and they spark up my eyes;as I scroll down pages, my pupils dialate and I stop…my heart says:”I want you to be that”. Sometimes, they are just pictures of things, books, tables, well furnished rooms that I can’t even BE but what my heart is actually trying to convey is that I need to capture and enliven the spirit that the photographer tried to capture. I capture these ghosts and then DREAM, WISH AND DO!

Comics and cartoons :)

”Be a Child”

Hey all! Peace! I’ve been browsing at tumblr a lot lately and I thought about the significance of cartoons an animation in our lives. They’ve  always fascinated me  and as a they have a large contribution in strengthening my power of imagination because of my sheer attachment to them in my childhood. This sparked an idea in my mind… about making textbooks or story books for children with the lessons that I want to convey to the sweet little kids of my country- tomorrow’s creative thinkers. So from this, I want you guys to think of something you like… and then use it to do something positive, don’t EVER let that feeling go away!

Cartoons keep me young at heart. What keeps you young?

God bless you all! 🙂
