Who Am I

I will tell you a short story today.

Once upon a time, there lived a cell inside a human body.

The cell was very proud of its being and its individual self. It was a social being and lived in a community with other cells.

With it’s many friends and relatives it was living an eventful life, and then one day it fell ill and died… every cell has a limited lifespan as you know

It’s dead remains was flushed out and buried on the earth and that was the first time the cell had come out of the human body and looked at it from outside

It couldn’t help but marvel at the giant structure it once belonged to. It could not help but wonder, how stupid it was to have missed this knowledge of who It really was

The cell just thought to itself

If i really had another life , i will spend it in it’s entirety to find the answer to this one question and teach it to my fellow cell beings

Be, Like Fire

Some are famous on earth

Some are famous in the heavens

But a few, in both.

Some are excellent teachers

Some are great spiritual leaders

But a few can be both

Everyone dies when the time comes

But a few, live on with heroic deaths

We call these few ,HEROES

I guess my Grandpa was one of them

Heroes are like fire

Gravity pulls everything down

But the fire, still goes up

He is like that fire

That still lights up my whole town..

Love is the odd one out

Every other action is a one way relationship from Allah to you, except…

Allah shows you mercy , but you can’t show Him mercy

Allah forgives you, but you can’t forgive Him

Except Love.

Allah loves you , and you can love Him back

And interestingly, He has left you that choice

Yet we seek perfect love from people and

We are saddened when we don’t get it back

Love the One who created Love and you out of that love

Everyone in heavens and earth will by default love you

Seek Love from the right place !

( inspired from sheikh Ibn Arabi)

Pea(ie)ce of Mind

A little peace of mind, might

Cost a big piece of your wealth

Sacrifice your share

whether or not others care

You will be a real hero

While they call you zero

You will fly high

While they sigh a cry

In contentment, as Shafiee said, richness lie

Had the rich known, they’d never ever lie.

I live with my parents

No matter how good you are with parents

There is always a level higher

I recently saw a poster where Christiano Ronaldo expressed his great love for his mother and said he will always keep his mother with him , regardless of his fame and busy travels.

For a celebrity of that stature these are beautiful words and a great expression of love and humility before his mother

Recently, I Saw a greater expression of love when I asked one of my successful friends as a passing question, “oh so your parents live with you ..?”

He immediately corrected me and said , “No I live with my parents , I wouldn’t have been here if not for them “

Even though his parents were depending on him, he gave them the credit and chose to express his dependence on them.

So there is always a level, up.

No matter how good you are with parents

There is always a level, higher

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)
