“We exist only if we learn to coexist”
The secret code to make your children respect you as a parent is, to
Deal with your own parents respectfully in-front of them
Inspired by Habib
Who are you with
Angels or Devils
Observe your thoughts when your are alone
You will know whose company you are in
The Mouse in your House
A negative thought in your mind
Is like a mouse in the house
You know well the damage just one can cause
Think of having a thousand mice at once
Use of a trap can only catch a few
But prevents not more from entering anew
Find the hole through which it creeps in
Seal it at once and earn a piece of your mind!
They say we have 70000 thoughts a day. And for an average person more than half of it is negative and a lot of the rest is about trivial matters.
While it’s not easy to put a full stop to these, the best temporary solution is to drive away negative thoughts with opposite thoughts which im referring to as the mouse trap ( Eg: to pray for or praise the one whome you are jealous against).
The real solution will be to find the source of these negative thoughts and solve it from the roots which is referred to as sealing the hole in the poem (Eg: To settle a long kept partnership or relationship issue rather than to live with it while it occupies half the space of your mind)

Rise Like The Sun
Be like the moon, mild
Not like the Sun , wild
Like the moon , veil
Not like the sun, reveal
Be like the moon, artistic
Not like the sun, stagnant
Be like the moon, compassionate
Not like the sun, investigative
Yet, when the line is crossed
Be gone like the moon,
And like the Sun, Rise.

Be a Worthy CEO – A Unique Conversation.
Spiris: Oh! You are the CEO , You must be really busy then
CEO: Ofcourse, its a heavy job
Spiris: I always wanted to know , how do you manage all these tasks
like breathing, heart beats, digestion, blood circulation ..etc so efficiently everyday
CEO: No those are operational stuff, i have an Attendant to take care of it and
as the CEO, I have more important things to work on.
Spiris: Such as ..?
CEO: Such as whom to Marry, What to eat, whom to worship , when to sleep etc.
Spiris: Oh! I never knew this, you must be paying the Attendant heavily then
CEO: No, he works for free.
Spiris: How about other benefits. you must be offering something irresistable
CEO: No, i don’t even buy him food, nor does he leave work for a day
Spiris: I can assume, even if he takes off for a minute we won’t be having this discussion
I would love to meet such a great soul, what’s his name by the way?
CEO: To be honest, i don’t even know his name, nor do I know how his whereabouts
Spiris : Do you know how long he will be with you, like do you have any contract with him ?
CEO: I don’t know, he is just like a guest serving me on a proactive basis , he can leave anytime and I have no control over it
Spiris : Then you must take very good care of such a selfless attendant and pay him back somehow
CEO: I don’t know how to do that , I never thought about him this way. Can you please advise?
Spiris: I am no one to advise, however at the bare minimum be thankful to Him and be a worthy CEO to such a great Attendant.
( The CEO in the story refers to your conscious mind/nafs and the Attendant refers to the Soul/subconscious mind/ Rooh)
The Poor Farmer & The Mighty King
Once a plain land made a pact with a farmer, that if you remove the thorns and the weeds from me i shall turn out to be a fruitful land. The farmer agreed and removed all the unwanted obstacles from it, in no time the land turned out to be a lush green garden with flowers of all kinds and fruits of all types.
People from near and far came just to have a look at this great garden and went back satiated in their eyes and stomach with the great hospitality of the farmer. It didnt take long for the news to reach the Mighty King, and He personally came to visit the beautiful garden one day. The farmer welcomed Him with all his warmth and before departing the King praised the farmer for creating such a beautiful garden.
In response , the farmer said to the King with humility “My Lord, the land, the garden and this poor me, all belong to You. I am just a mere care taker and a subject in your kingdom. “The King was impressed with the farmer’s words and became a regular Visitor to the garden and made the farmer among the best of His friends
The Land in the story refers to your heart, the thorns to the malice in the heart, the King to the Creator Himself and the farmer is none other than you.
I Leave the choice to you. Who do you want to become
A mere land owner, a successful farmer or a friend to The Mighty King Himself ..
