Attempting to comprehend reality


Our mind, in an attempt to comprehend reality, draws upon our past experiences and integrates them with something new or different to create a new or better understanding. But because that understanding is built on our own unique experiences, it may well differ from that of others who have not shared the same experience, or the same prior experiences, upon which our understanding is based.

A Million Ways To Live: Al Muhyi (The One Who Gives Life)

When we start our life we do not have any specific dreams or aspirations; When we start seeing all those attracting things around us we want to get up from our four pats to stand up on two limbs and to come to conquer the world around us. We start having lots of dreams and lots of aspirations, but when we get older we encounter also lots of defeats and disillusions.

Somehow deep in our heart we may feel a certain call, a cry that there could be an Al Khaleeq (The Creator), but most people do not want to know about some One Who is Greater than they and has their life in His Hands. But without this Divine Creator man shall have to find that life is empty and time is restricted, coming to see that in this life we shall never get to that high point of total fulfilment.

When finding Allah the Exalted, or the God above all gods, we shall be able to grow and find peace in our heart, how much other people may try to destroy the good name of Allah and want to bring fear over the world, blaspheming Allah and besmearing the Muslim community.

The dreams that you have sketched in your duas, the visuals that you have created in your mind about how that “moment” would look like, the imaginary rehearsal sessions in your washroom where you prepare for the “feeling” lest you dont feel silly- we all have these dreams. Getting that degree or that job, that dream marriage, that dream family, driving your dream car or unpacking at your dream home; all of us have so many things we want, wish for, ask for.
The wishes and duas we voice out to Allah are like the statues made of clay. In our limited capacities, thats the closest we can be to the reality we want to have. So we need Al Muhyi to give life to those statue like dreams, by making them real in flesh and blood. So ask Al Muhyi to give life to your duas by manifesting them…

spontaneous outpourings of unpremeditated verse

What I see
is what I perceive
my eye collects everything
but my mind filters
all the sights
and reinforces what I know
so what I see is what I believe
It’s hard to change your vision
before you change your mind.

Look with your eyes. See with your heart!

Look with your eyes. See with your heart!

Apples.jpgYou are in the supermarket pushing a cart. You are in front of the shelves with apples that are neatly stored according to taste, kind and variety. It is fruit you need for your health and you buy it, whether the price is good or not. You look at the quality label and then put a pack of six in your cart and go to the till.

It is not because you look that you see.
Your biological eye sees shapes and different colours. But do we actually ‘see’ what we are ‘looking’ at?
‘To see’ is only possible by standing still in a special way, by consciously looking at  and by being present with mindfulness. To see is always the result of looking with our inner eye, because reality has a tactile outer side but also an invisible inner side.

What if you would pick your apple yourself in the orchard ?
When choosing the apple that you pick yourself, you invariably begin to smile because of what you see, feel and smell. Your eyes admire the shapes and colours ,while your hands handle the apple as a piece of live food. This apple , ‘your apple’ is not any more just merchandise, but one of the wonders of life that you want to cherish.

Very often we ‘look’ without ‘seeing’, because our heart is not in it.
Phil Bosmans once wrote :

There are so many wonders around us that are waiting to be discovered. When you look at someone you love, when you look at flowers and butterflies and birds because you find them beautiful, you always see so much more than only your eyes can see.Then you discover daily new miracles”.

You start to think more with your heart than with your mind.

Thought of the day: We want more, i want more, but why is that?

We have been so accustomed and so deformed that we enjoy our mind crying out for more over and over again.

In Scripture this situation is being called ‘Being of the world’ and is been given the advice not to be of this world. Forgetting all the pressure the media wants to put on you to buy this or that. Just letting pass all those who want to enjoy just for making them happy for a moment instead for searching that happiness which they can carry all day.

Let us look for the real necessities of life and the real happiness, which is not in material things but in the right feeling the right heart.

Less… is still enough

Less for more

Freedomwithingrasp

We want more, i want more but why is that? I just shut it off. It’s that simple. The brain tells the body what to do. If it stops it then nothing happens. Your filter makes life ever so dull and less amazing then what it could be. Filter out the wrong things not the right things that feel wrong. Know the difference and live out more. you don’t have to live more to know more. Living less gives you knowledge too but different. not bad but different.

Time Has A Way Of Healing

Human beings are often not patient enough and do not want to give enough time to heal their body and their soul.

In case we would be willing to use the ‘cover of time‘ and the ‘cover of love‘ and understanding we would not have to worry such a long time about arguments we had and words which crossed our paths. Instead of being annoyed such a long time about arguments we had or heavy discussions, we should use the time to think about it and use meditation-time to give us some answers to heal the psychological wounds.

Often it is by lack of love for the other that so many bridges stay blown up and roads do not get repaired. To forgive is for many so difficult that they even can not cope with the thought of it. They should know it is a sort of weakness when you are not able to forgive and not able to swoop the sponge over the arguments you had.

Let us go for the better. We do not have to forget, but we should prefer to leave it as a thing in the past which we would preferred not to have happened. so why to stand still so long by it? Continue your way and reach out to the other in loving-kindness. Show the other you are strong enough to stand up again and to continue your way with him to better pastures.

With our mind we can do much more than we think. Everything is in the mind. and we should know that we do have received our minds to get to know the wonders of the world and to come to a good relationship with everything of the creation. For being able to come to a good relationship we do have to open our minds to the positive things of this life and should mend as we may need help from friends or well intentioned professionals.
“Let love and healing conquer for all of humanity”

And let us not forget:

He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass

  • Living Mindfully for a Healthy Body, Mind, and Heart (goodtherapy.org)
    If this were your last day on earth, how would you spend it? Would you spend it inside an office or with your loved ones? While this may seem like a drastic question, I believe it helps us put things in perspective. Instead of living from a reactive stance where we’re putting out fires, obsessing over the future, or striving to do more, we pause and shift into the present moment. As we connect to body, mind, and heart, we open to our moment-to-moment experience in a nonjudgmental manner. This pausing to intentionally connect with the present moment can be challenging, but it’s an important step toward restoring balance between body, mind, and emotions.
  • Anti-Confusion (avirtuousmetalk.wordpress.com)
    My natural eye can only see what surrounds me. My spiritual eye when focused on God, can see that He is moving on my behalf within every aspect of my life. I no longer choose to be a mute witness or deaf believer. I want to make an alarming and resounding sound in the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere that signifies my life’s devotion as a living sacrifice to God.
  • Forgiveness (kadalyn.wordpress.com)
    Being able to forgive those who have wronged you is a mark of spiritual strength and confidence. When you forgive, you grow, your heart begins to heal, your back straightens up, your eyes clear so you can see the road ahead.
  • Forgiveness vs. Restoration of Trust by Rick Warren (christianmotivations.weebly.com)
    Forgiveness does not mean the instant restoration of trust. Forgiveness is instant. Trust must be rebuilt over time. Forgiveness is based on grace. Trust is built on works. You earn trust. You don’t earn forgiveness.
    +
    Forgiving a person does not mean you have to trust them. It means they have to earn the trust.
    +
    Restoration of a relationship takes far more than forgiveness. It takes repentance. It takes restitution and a rebuilding of trust. And it often takes a much longer time.
  • Daily Inspiration – Forgiveness is a Wonderful thing. (transformyourlife4ever.wordpress.com)
    Release all your anger, fear and resentment and move forward with a positive frame of mind. Let go of the past as it is impossible to change it, you can only learn from it. When you forgive you release the ties that bind you to hurt, pain, mistakes, heartache and anything that is negative and destructive in your life. When you forgive yourself and others you create a space that allows love and hope to exist.
  • Jesus Heals Broken Hearts (frommyheart2u.wordpress.com)
    The first step to healing is forgiveness. An emotional wound cannot heal without forgiveness. Unforgiveness and bitterness are like an infection;without removing them you will not recover.
  • Forgiveness: An Act of Self Love (consciouslifenews.com)
    When someone that matters to us is hurtful we will naturally feel painful emotions such as anger and sadness. We may find ourselves dwelling on the injustice of the situation and holding grudges. Gradually these negative feelings overshadow the positive feelings in our lives, leaving us filled with resentment. That eventually leads to spiritual paralysis and detrimental physical destruction.
    +
    Forgiveness is a promise we make to ourselves to change our life. It is about releasing ourselves from the grip that hinders our well-being—the negative hold we have essentially allowed the other person to have over us.
  • Is Forgiveness The Key To Happiness? (lifechris.wordpress.com)
    In the pursuit of true happiness, there are many stumbling blocks that the Universe likes to throw our way. If happiness is a choice, should we also choose to forgive those who have hurt and upset us in aid to achieve it?
  • Forgiveness (bishopcraig.com)
    There’s nothing about forgiveness that implies being a doormat or placing yourself or anyone else in danger. In fact, if that’s a jimmy-swaggart-caughtpossibility then forgiveness is inappropriate and premature.

Thursday Phrase Night for Palace Poets

Let Us All Heal
.
In nature time has a way of healing all wounds,
Unless the wound is fatal or the only cure for certain diseases
Is death, a sad state of affairs
The white blood cells in our bodies do their job  and rightfully so
Compassion for our fellow person should rule our day and
We should really care

Anger consumes many a soul who
Cannot find it in their hearts to forgive
The pain, the madness eating them inside making
Them bitter, no way to live

Of course there are some transgressions that
May be unforgivable but
We must seek out ways to cope
The hardest thing sometimes is searching one’s own soul
A worthy goal  turning hate into constructive hope

The link between physical and spiritual should
Never be forgotten or even discounted
Our bodies for the most part have a miraculous way

Being ‘broke’ a state of mind

“Being ‘broke’ is a state of mind. Not
a financial or spiritual condition
All wealth, happiness and abundance first
begins with the power of your mind.

The sooner you master your mind, the greater
your chances in attracting happiness, living
your highest purpose and manifest your dreams!”

    In order to manifest what you desire, you must align your body, mind, heart, Soul and will. If any of these aspects of yourself is not in alignment with your conscious desire, then you may experience resistance, self-sabotage, or counter-productive results. You can manifest anything you choose on the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual/etheric planes – the key is that you must believe that it is possible and you must believe that it is possible for you.Whatever you choose to manifest, it is also important to work toward your desired outcome on all levels by taking physical, mental, emotional and spiritual steps that lead to that reality.

    Vibrating frequencies build a virtual construct that makes you think you are in a physical world, but you are not. You are in a holographic universe which is an illusion so well designed, that only the highest beings of light can see it for what it is. This is your destiny, but now you will continue to play this game called Earth at a level never played before. You are still playing with three dimensional rules in a fifth dimensional world, but you’re quickly learning how to make the transition by shifting energy.
  • Heather Matthew’s Manifestation Miracle Guide Reveals Secrets That Will Draw Money, Happiness & Success to One’s Life Automatically (sbwire.com)
    People who are currently depressed and have no motivation about tomorrow will find the law of attraction success stories so motivated and exciting that they will hardly sleep waiting for the new day to come and reveal new secrets and new success to them too.In order to start the process of change, people should firstly realize where they are now and how they feel about their current life? Are they satisfied with what they have or long for much more? Those who have dreams are much more prone to reach them and improve their current situation than those who do not have such.

    So desire is the first step that can change people’s spiritual world that will impact their physical world. The next step is to start thinking positively, as people usually bring about what they think about. Believing in the possibility and in the own strengths is a must in the secret law of attraction. The expected miracles can really happen and those that are never expected will never come true.

  • Living the Law of Attraction (julietour.wordpress.com)
    Whatever your focus is on becomes manifested into material form. Belief makes the unbelievable tangible. Want to see an angel? After continuously focusing on my belief in a spiritual experience, I finally experienced many amazing things. Worried about a car being repossessed? Worries can block all abundance to help pay for that car, so the universe helped there as well…. Like earning thousands the day after it’s repossession. A little too ironic, right? Focused on abundance and a huge bank account? I’ve been there too and used my riches to share with my family, friends, and causes I cared about. Worried about a bad grade? The focus will make you late or miss class due to unforeseen circumstances no matter how hard you studied.
  • Opportunities Abound~Abundance is YOURS! (eascensio.wordpress.com)
    It doesn’t matter what aspect of life you connect these feelings with, these feelings of lack and always seeking more, seems to sneak its way into every crevasse within our lives. Once it is in, it moves everywhere, like a virus or a cancer. It can create darkness and emptiness when we allow it to. So, now we can tackle this with boldness and confidence to flush it out; ‘once and for all!’ Join me in doing so right here, right now!

We all have to have dreams

Dreams

Dreams (Photo credit: hufse)

Without dreams we are nothing. As a child we bring our aspirations to live in our dreams. We are convinced that we have the right to dream whatever we want. In our dreams we any place ourselves in any role we want. We are also convinced the dreams are totally ours. In our mind and our soul we want to sojourn and create our own world. We claim it to be our individual right to dream as big as we want.

Who cares if it never amounts to anything ? But who knows ? It doesn’t take away our right to do so one little iota.

Claim your great individuality.

Why is it that so many adults do not want to give way to their dreams any more? why do so many adults laugh with the dreams of others, and mainly with the people who would love to share their dreams with others. On this platform we do hope to present dreams of many people. For us all the writers who join us may dream as if they’ll live forever. Live as if they’ll die today.

Here we do not mind dreaming aloud. Here we want to give a voice to the many dreams of people somewhere on this globe. We want to say to all that they should believe in the power of their dreams and should strive to get their dreams becoming true. The people joined here together may have dreams of which others think they never can become true …. but when everybody would think this way, it is unfeasible we shall never see the seeds of making something grow. The writers over here may believe in peace and unity between all folks. It may look utopian, but by holding strong on the dream they want to spread the message of those dreams and bring inner peace to many all over the world.

Who knows where such dreams may lead to? Who knows where such belief leads to?

If there is no peace in the future it is because not enough people wanted it. It is that simple.

It will happen. Make no mistake. No way to avoid it. It is a cycle and for those who believe in the Divine Creator, they received the assurance of that world-peace and can count on the prophecies coming true, even when they still shall have to face the third World War and an other thousands year before the end goal shall be reached.

English: Lubok-style cover of a Russian dream ...

For those who chased several dreams which never succeeded, they shall also be able to say they enjoyed them and perhaps they still have  fantastic memories by them.

We may never give up dreaming, and we better take more efforts in sharing our dreams and living them to come true.

Oh so many people have become frightened to dream. Perhaps we should accept that dreaming requires courage.

A courage to strive towards a mirage, to build castles, to go to many worlds, and a courage to trust the ones who are willing to give you a hand on their voyage or to trust that whatever you may find when you finally get there, that it will be worthwhile.
After all, although reality can never match our dreams, neither can a dream ever fully describe the complex and unpredictable reality.

Some of the writers in this club of guest-writers may have fought for their dreams in World War II, in the 1968 upraising or in some other contestations or in one of the many worlds which killed so many people. Also much  younger voices we would love to see here, because they are the future. As such people who could have been at actions like the  or might join us in the future. They had their voices going loud on the marches for peace, power and freedom. They marked recent decades but saw many dreams scattered and saw how the world present a backdrop for today’s human conditions of stress, anxiety, insecurity and turmoil.

There are as many civil wars and wars between nations. From the individual perspective, the cry for peace is heralded as respite from the turbulence of today’s hectic lifestyle. In the past four to five decades we have lived in such a way as to create challenging situations in our lives and create even more havoc as we try to solve the resulting problems. {Peace In Troubled Times}

World Peace Flag of the Universal Peace Congress.

Today in certain countries we may not see so many “No War” “Make peace” stickers as we saw in the time of the Vietnam War. but we might still see somewhere a popular bumper sticker that states, “Peace begins within,” and a hymn that is sung in thousands of churches world-wide on Sundays, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”

Yes, peace begins within the heart and mind of every person. Until we reignite the flame of peace, love and unity there can be no lasting peace in individuals, among people and nations of the world. {Peace In Troubled Times}

Those who have had or still have so many dreams of friendship and peace should dare to give their dreams a voice. We all should ask ourselves whether or not we have lived responsibly in recent decades and if we really tried enough to change something in the world around ourselves.

On this platform we would love to give a voice to all who are interested to dare to out themselves and to give a voice to their dreams, prepared to spawn national and international debates. With the widely reported impending consequences of global warming, catastrophes of war and economic collapses, the outlook may be bleak. but we do believe whenever each individual would like to take up the figurative ‘arms’ and do something against our ‘pollution‘ (in a broad sense) we shall be able to make turning points.

When we are with many we may give some impact and create some fertile ground for the human condition as they are fed in large daily doses at breakfast, dinner and all throughout the day. Conditions of fear, stress, anger, frustration, rage, insecurity and strife are the results of the negative thoughts and the materialism of this world, but the humbleness, the brotherly-love and the sincere care for nature, can bring solutions by which future generations can continue to build a better world.

When we conform to the world we allow the dictates of the world and its appearances to control our lives. The real of man is spiritual and divine, not the ego driven personality that responds to the whims and fancies of every Tom, Dick and Harry. Stress and conflict occur when the inner spiritual self and its outer personality self are in opposing viewpoints.

Frankl theorizes that mans search for meaning is a primary force in his life which is unique and specific in that it must and can be fulfilled by him alone. Our greatness as human beings lies in our ability to change our minds and the conditions of our lives. What is so great about living in a free, democratic country is that it affords us the privilege of freedom to be all we want to be. Individually we must desire freedom and make the choice for freedom as we live our life. The great author and self help guru, Stuart Wilde, teaches that we should “Concentrate on ourselves and leave the world alone. As we strengthen ourselves we save all of humanity, because we are all linked to one another.” {Peace In Troubled Times}

By getting to know ourselves better and by allowing others to know us better as well and to share our love for others, we can reach even more if we do not leave the world but would embrace it as if it is the thing we love most and we do care as our little baby. Fostering as a little child we should educate it and show it the different ways it can go.

It is true that we must desire a change from the stress and turbulent lifestyle we live today.

We must dare to rise up, declare, pursue and claim peace for ourselves. This will impact the lives of family and friends and spread out to our communities and our world. The pursuit of peace is perhaps the most followed path to spiritual enlightenment. A peaceful disposition calms the rough and tossed seas of turbulence, strife, fear and discontent. {Peace In Troubled Times}

We should join hands and not stand still, but walk together hand-in-hand, radiating out to touch the lives of others and willing to transform our world.

Individually transformed lives will create a mass consciousness of peace and there will be peace on earth, beginning with every one of us. {Peace In Troubled Times}

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

-Eleanor Roosevelt

    The story of Trishala Mata revolves around the fourteen dreams she had after the conception of her son, Lord Mahavir. It is believed Mahavir’s soul was conceived by a Brahmin lady named Devananda. However, divine powers transferred the fetus to Trishala. After having the dreams, Trishala’s husband, King Siddharth, summoned the scholars of the court and asked them to explain the meaning of the dreams.

    I was friends with dragons, and I could fly, and I had magic powers, and I was immortal. I was always either saving the world or ruling it with a wise but firm hand (it was amazing how quickly things fell apart when left unattended). My dreams had no beginning and no end – once I sketched out a world in my mind, I’d land myself in the middle of some situation and watch it unfold, inevitably falling asleep before it was over. They didn’t need to: the fun lay in the no-holds-barred freedom of creation itself.

    As children, we all had our own big, crazy dreams for the future. Some may have wanted to become the first astronauts to land on Mars, while others wanted to end all wars and achieve true world peace. But where have those big dreams gone? As we grew older, looked at those old dreams and dismiss them, believing that they’re unattainable or that they were just products of a child’s naïve fantasies. The sad thing is that these days, even the children seem to be afraid to dream big. Research has shown that only 10% of Americans actually set a goal in public school, and this is actually closely related to the very low percentage of rich people in America. People seem to have forgotten the importance of dreaming big, which can be summarized into three key points
