How to become emotionally stable.

Control your environment.

Our problem is that we surround ourselves with people or things that leach energy out of us, and then we wonder why we are on an emotional roller coaster. First thing you should do is to watch out for your environment, I don’t know who said this famous quote, some people say it was Freud some people say it was Neitzsche, it goes something like this; Before you diagnose yourself with depression, make sure that you are not surrounded by assholes. That is true, your environment shapes who you are, now we are not only talking about the people surrounding you, we are talking about almost everything, if your room’s shelves contains video games, you will probably see yourself as a gamer, if the shelves are filled with books you will see yourself as an intellectual, therefore you have to control your surrounding, the music you listen to, the movies you watch, the things you talk about, they all define your emotional and mental state.

Stop fighting life, give up, surrender, float! instead of swimming against the current.

No matter how successful or powerful you have become, if your soul has not yet been surrendered to the higher force, you will still find sadness in your life, you will still experience pain, truly, to absolutely believe that there is a great lover watching after you is a hard task, but Oh how fruitful it is!

Accept the world as it is, close your eyes and dance to His tune.

Give every drop of love you have in your bottle.

Give love so that love will become a part of your being. At every opportunity, give love, so that He returns that love to you.

Don’t judge what you see because every fault you see, is a fault in you, every human, every particle, every matter, is a reflection of you. When you judge things you are judging yourself.

If you are constantly re-confronted with pain always know that, You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star. ~ Neitzsche.

Thought rec #4

Every thought is real,

Every spelled word is real,

If it doesn’t exist in front of your eyes, it exists somewhere else.

Thought rec #3

As I become smarter, everyone around me becomes smarter.

No matter how many epiphanies god bestows upon me, I still feel inadequate, there is still something missing inside.

Law of Success # 1 Whatever you want to become/achieve, do it step by step. Patience.

Build your dream brick by brick.

You might not see any immediate results, that’s natural, if you want to build a house, you will not see in front of your eyes a house just after laying the first brick. You have to be patient, persistent, keep your goal in mind and never lift your eyes off of it. The Quran says that humans were created weak (Surat An-Nisā’, 28) and impatient (Surat Al-‘Isra‘, 11) It is human’s nature to be in a hurry and expect immediate results. Therefore be positive, approach your goal little by little.

Once The Emam Ali pbuh, was on his way to the mosque on top of his horse. When he reached the mosque he told a man standing outside the mosque to watch over his horse while the Emam goes inside to pray. The man got greedy and stole the Emam’s saddle from the horse’s back and hurried to the marketplace to sell it.

While the Emam finished his prayer, he found that the man was gone and the saddle was missing, so he decided to go to the market to buy another saddle so that he can ride his horse.

Upon reaching the market, he was shocked to find his saddle displayed for sale. He asked the seller, how much will you sell this saddle? The seller replied, 10 Dirhams, the Emam asked him, how much did you buy it for? He replied, 5 Dirhams.

The Emam said; glory to God, I was planning to pay the thief 5 Dirhams for watching over my horse while I was praying, but he didn’t have any patience.

Success will come to you, leave it in the hands of god, So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (The Bible, Luke, Chapter 11 Verse 9)

Have patience.

All humans believe in god. Period. الأيمان بالله فطرة

Believing in god/a higher force is an instinct. Just like when a man knows that he needs to eat indefinitely, all humans know that there is a higher force for which they can not explain. For e.g If an atheist is on a plane and the plane is taking him on an enjoyable auto-pilot cruise, he will say wow! How scientists are amazing! As soon as the plane drops and is about to crash, he will call on god for help.

That my friend, is instinct.

 

P.S. This is not a message to atheists saying that you should convert, but this is rather a message to religious extremists to leave them alone.

Why I stopped bullying and making fun of people.

A rule entered into my belief system that turned my life 180 degrees and changed the way I treat others.

What is that rule?

Don’t do to others that which you wouldn’t do to yourself.

You see life is interrelated and interdependent. Almost everything we do is mimicked, was it you who decided that wearing jeans is fine? Was it you who decided that hamburgers are delicious? Was it you who decided to learn to walk on your feet rather than walking on your hands?

Whats your point?

My point is that almost 99% of the things that we do are either predetermined or mimicked, so we don’t have the right to judge others.

If I laugh at someone who wears a funny shirt, someone in Africa can laugh at me for wearing clothes. As I point one finger there are three fingers pointing back at me.

Also belittling people is a sign of inferiority complex.

People who want to achieve great measures of success have no other option but to empower people so that those same people would empower them back.

There is no doubt that sometimes its ok to make fun and have a good laugh but not by belittling or dishonoring people.

If you have time to judge people, you don’t have time to love them. ~ Mother Theresa

There’s an Arabic proverb that goes something like this;

People have types, and being close minded is a disaster.

للناس اجناس و قلة العقل مصيبة.
