Monster

“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” ~Havelock Ellis

Whenever I plan to refurbish myself, steer my lifestyle in a new direction, I confront the ever-present fear of becoming a monster. I once became a monster. Over confidence took over due to lack of maturity and humility, yet after two years of learning and mending my mistakes, the dormant monster frightens me. I read in a saying of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) that a ‘The believer does not allow to be stung twice from one (and the same) hole” . And this comforted me. If I keep my faith alive, I will never repeat that mistake. I am going to let go of the mistake and hold on to the change I want to bring. Help me, God.

God help you all!

Through the crack…

Through the crack

Don’t fill the crack, recognise that your flaws exist and they are your path to salvation- the path to an enlightened you. There must be someone that you like, someone who inspires you and you even envy him/her a bit. Don’t worry. This attraction..this pull towards that person means something. You have to be like him/her. And that’s how the light comes in through your crack. Your flaw took you to improvement! See!

Let the light come in.

Take good care of your thoughts

Take care of every thought that crooses your mind. Put insane ones in the insane box, good ones in the good box and bad ones in the evil box. Keep insane and evil box closed at all times. It’s important to recognise the difference between good and bad thoughts. Thoughts make you what you are. I want to write more but I’m having a block. 😦

RANDOM THOUGHT

Here’s a random thought: ‘The wind only blew when they were really happy’

NEWS

And here’s some news: I’m gonna be starting a Short Story Section on the blog. I’ll be releasing it in pieces so that it’s convenient to read and absorb. Is that a good idea?

Neither the future, nor the past

Even when everything is perfect and all that you wished for in times of need and distress is granted, you still feel like life is not easy. It’s like you keep finding the perfect posture to sit on a small couch but every posture has a flaw; either it hurts your back or pinches your elbow. I have been yearning for vacation but now that I’m free, I feel like having my responsibilities back. Does it happen with everyone?

Then yesterday, dad solved the predicament with this
“A true believer never worries about the future or the past; he lives in moments” – The Quran.
I was relieved… and the scorching afternoon heat outside suddenly became beautiful sunshine. I’m thankful to God for having a dad like him :’) (happy tears)
Now, I live in the present.. in MOMENTS of my vacation, exploring each second instead of thinking of to-do lists. And this is not just for vacation, it’s for working days too because I really want this to be the idea of my life and not a vacation experiment. I wish we all do that and stop looking at clocks. Speaking of clocks, I’m going to leave you all with this fantastic Coldplay song, hoping my message adheres and makes its way to practicality.
