Life is an adventure filled with joy, blessings, discovery, plot twists. Some trials and some drudgery. What it isn’t is the end. It can be summarised as it goes on and it can be best lived in the moment.
If anything is constant in life it’s change, resistance is not your friend. What’s your friend is surrender. What best serves you is resilience. What you can best have, is a will that makes you want to align with all that’s good about life, rather than the pessimism that makes you wander without recourse. The former is a remarkable trait in an individual. It has a system operating within that runs on the mantra fall down 7 but get up 8.
Smile because you deserve to, re align your focus with what serves you. You have a choice. And Allah stands in that space compulsion makes you unconsciously flee from. It’s a space called surrender.
In it there are fruits called serenity, understanding, love, comfort, order, relief, sound perspective and most of all acceptance.
You ever wonder why in spite of all your religious short comings he receives you with mercy, blesses you and has your back? It’s because he knows your story, and to Allah there is a difference between your soul that made the pledge to him before you were born and the you environment cultivated.
He is closer than your jugular vein, has access to the root of your pain. Don’t stand bewildered when upon you his mercy rains. Be grateful and decipher what he has always been trying to show you.
Allah stands behind the door of releasing the false illusion of control. The door of surrender open to all. Your deeds don’t matter your vulnerability does.
