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.

Thought rec #2

In order to succeed in this world, man does not have any other choice but to be a part of the madness and chaos which this world is in.

I thank you god for all the blessings that you have given me, I have failed to appreciate your love, please give me the strength to see your face in all my endeavours, please give me the power to believe that everything that happens to me is your choice and wisdom, you know and I don’t know.

How to find the right partner? How to know if you should marry or not? How to know whether your partner is the “one” or not?

A good friend of mine once told me “Avoid making things too complicated when it comes to choosing the right partner, there are only three things that you need to put into consideration.

1) S/he must not be neither so good looking than you, nor so lesser good looking than you.

2) S/he must not be financially a lot more capable than you, nor financially a lot more weaker than you.

3) S/he must not be too smarter than you, nor too dumber than you.

If you want to know whether s/he is the one, ask yourself this;

Can you live without your partner?

If you answered yes, then that person is not the one.

Benefits of meditation, 10 reasons why you should meditate and enjoy a stress-free life.

Meditation helps you control your thoughts and silences those chaotic multiple voices in your head, which their sources are unknown. Napoleon Hill says: Thought control is the highest form of self control. If you have dreams and you want to achieve them, you better have thought control or you’ll end up finding yourself on an emotional roller coaster. Uncertainty is one of our greatest enemies, meditation kills it.

Meditation helps slow your heart rate, if combined with deep breathing, your body will relax, escape the tensions of our high-demanding-info-chaotic world, and rebalance/harmonize your cells.

Meditation helps in eliminating stress, a relaxed mind is always stess free.

Meditation helps you listen to your deepest concerns, and filters out those thoughts which bombard you but in reality they don’t concern you, in other words you know the difference between what really matters to you and what doesn’t.

Meditation helps you get closer to your inner voice, the voice of wisdom, the all knowing, infinite intelligence, god.

Meditation makes you trust your heart, and strengthens your instincts.

Meditation gives your life a purpose, gratitude and love for oneself.

Meditation helps you identify your ego.

If you have love in your heart sometimes you will find that you were born only to meditate and to do nothing else.

In the end, it depends on what you have in your heart when you meditate, if you want to achieve something specific, try meditating and imagining those things that you want. Einstein says: Your imagination is your preview of your life’s coming attractions.

How to handle stressful situations? How to become stress free?

Do you often find yourself emotionaly upset when you hear or see something you don’t like or you don’t agree with?

Do you often find yourself on an emotional roller coaster?

For your info, there are people who rearly experience emotional stress and in the coming paragraphs we will learn how to be relaxed, have confidence, and enjoy a healthy and a balanced emotional life.

Please Note: What we are about to discuss are deep rooted stimuli, imagine the source of these stimuli are some false knots in your mind, we will now untie these knots that stimulate these outter emotions that you are experiencing, and replace these knots with the emotions of beauty and love. Therefore, ponder upon each rule before going to the next.

Rule number 1 (and the most important rule) It’s all in your head. 

Truly, men are not troubled by the problems they face, the way they LOOK at their problems.
It is very important that you elminate your fears. Neale Donald Walsche once said that FEAR is an abbreviation for; Feeling Excited And Ready.

Eliminate those realities which you do not like. You have the power. Just ask how to attain this power, and the answer will be shown to you.

Once I was lying down on a bed in a hotel room in Nepal, I was looking at the ceiling fan, and I noticed that the motion of the fan’s blades were clockwise. I thought to myself, I will make it move counter clockwise! And I could. I was able to see the fan rotate anti-clockwise and clockwise according to my will.

Now, if that is possible, so is the way you perceive the realities of your life, it is all in your head, you are the one creating the problem, not others.

So how do you shift from being a reactive person to being a proactive person? You are the one who can answer this question. Ask yourself some deep questions, what is it that upsets you in life? Is it because of YOU or is it because of something out of your control. Be true to yourself.

Whenever you are confronted by a stressful situation, say; is it really worth my calories? 🙂 it is that simple.

Love and respect yourself, being stressful is a crime against yourself. Gandhi says “There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever. “

Have love and gratitude.

I couldn’t help but notice that the people who are truly happy, they have immense gratitude for simple things.

Humans’ basic instict is compassion, so nobody is plotting anything against you, but rather, everybody is trying be as good as possible, just like you.

Love and so you will be loved. A man who has love in his heart, his road is illuminated.

Build bridges for yourself and others around you, maximize your and others’ potential, bring the good out, sow seeds of beauty and truth.

If you feel that the knots are still tight on your mind, research “Hollographic universe” or watch this video, it will give your mind a sort of a reboot, and then you will recognise and appreciate your dearest philosophies.

God bless

The Law Of Compensation explained. How to live? Do I need a set of laws in my life?

There are laws or let us say forces that affect our lives and affect the way the events and circumstances occur in our lives.

I believe that your awareness to these laws, will help you understand why things happen the way they do in your life.

The Law Of Compensation:

It is when you give, that you receive.

Sacrifices existed since ancient times. People slaughter animals, give away food, money, and items of value, in order to receive what they want in return.

Now I want you to have an open mind and to dismiss any prejudices you have, what you are about to read might sound supersticious, but if you want to see for yourself the profound truth behind these words, give yourself a chance to experiment with the law, so that you can judge for yourself the soundness of it’s truth.

Back to the Law Of Compensation.

Let us prepare your mind to understand the law.

Scientifically speaking; “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Very simple truth. If you clench your fist and punch a wall, the same amount of force that you have applied to the wall, will be applied to your knuckles. The harder you punch, the harder the reaction/pain in your knuckles. Then why is it that you wouldn’t use the same principle to the day to day events of your life?

You see, time does not exist. Everything that occurs is occuring at one time.

You might use the terms “past, present and future” but these are only labels to describe what you have experienced, are experiencing and will experience. Before, now and later.

But how does that relate to the Law Of Compensation?

Let us say that a friend contacts you and needs some sort of help. It will be easy for you to say to that person; well I’m sorry I can’t help you. BUT, since you went out of your way to help that friend – You have punched the wall. Now the universe will look inside you for the things that matter to you and will provide you with a reaction that is equal to the help that you have given to your friend. (Equal and opposite reaction)

You might not receive the reward at the same time that you helped your friend, there is a slight variance between the time that you have punched the wall and the time you receive the pain, the pain comes later, so you will receive your reward later.

The bigger the help that you give, the bigger the reward.

I couldn’t help but noticed that the majority of rich people have one thing in common, they are giving things which are equivalent in size to the things that they get.

For instance, the other day I was watchin a show about Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal (world’s top billionaires) the show was giving an overview about his life, what he owns, how he invests and this and that. Anyways in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, there is a custom for royal families where they make a gathering so that people can come and ask for help. There was a huge cue and people one by one were shaking the prince’s hand and giving him papers that state what they are in need of. The prince was standing and explaining to the reporter what was happening, and while he was explaining, he was whining and complaining about how much money he is loosing because of this tradition. He claimed that he was loosing billions!

At that moment I doubted the prince’s awareness of the law of compensation, it is because of his “loosing of billions” he is receiving his fortune by other means.

When your capacity to give increases, so does your capacity to get.

All you have to do is to increase your capacity to give.

Thought rec #1

You moulde your reality by the way you observe things every moment, spontaneously.

There are forces in this world, for which an untrained mind can not comprehend.

Your past is not your reality, it’s your imagination, so is your future.

If you don’t have love in your heart, then don’t waste your time living.

A life without synchronicity is time wasted.

My eyes, they do not tell the whole truth.

Anyone with ENOUGH common sense will be successful.

Art is what a man sees and experiences, his art tells what he sees and what you see in his art is your art.

History is one of the wonders of the world; it flips, twists and squashes your mind and then it brings it back to normal, if you are lucky enough, your mind will not go back to normal.

Courage is the first attribute – that a man of dreams – should have.

Annihilate your fear, and you annihilate yourself.

Scarcity is one of the biggest lies the world has ever seen.

Modern Slavery. Does Slavery Exist Today? Yes indeed!

In olden times slavery looked like this:

Today you do not see men in shackles, modern slavery is invisible to the human eye.

In my country, The Kingdom of Bahrain, slavery is executed in a different manner.

This is a short story of a brave man who goes by the name of Faisal Alkhazmiya.

Born and raised in the country of Bangladesh, Faisal is 20 years old, he is currently working in Bahrain, his working hours are from 4am to 8:30pm, thats approx 16 hours of labour.

I ask him why do you do this? In reply he says; In my country, there are men who work for 8 hours a day and receive only 100 Taka (Taka is the Bangladeshi Currency) you can buy a large Pepsi bottle for 70 Taka, so basically there are men in Bangladesh who work for 8 hours a day for a large bottle of Pepsi and some potato chips.

He continues: I don’t give a damn if I have a life or not, as long as my mother and my little siblings have food on the table it is fine with me if I have to sleep 4-5 hours a day and work for the rest. (Basically he works in Bahrain and sends his money abroad to his family, the Bahraini Dinar has more buying power than the Bangladeshi Taka)

In Bahrain there are 125,000 Bangladeshis(1) I wonder how many of them have to lead a life which is similar to Faisal’s.

Leaving the poor aside, what about the middle class citizens? Very joyfuly they go to work every day from 8am to 5pm, they have no personal life, their children don’t know them, their neighbours don’t know them, they don’t have time to socialize, they don’t have time to do the things that they enjoy doing; basically their souls are dead. Why do you believe all of this to be true? Because time is the fundamental resource, which every human possesses equally. No man has more time than any other man. We all have the same amount of time. Now I could be wrong by what I’m about to say, but from my experience I came to learn that nothing can be improved without giving it your time. you can not improve your relationships with your loved ones if you dont spend time with them. No art can be mastered without the habit of practice. (To practice you need time)

You have 24 hours a day, 6 – 8 hours you are asleep, 9 hours you are at work, that’s an average of 16 – 18 hours that are sucked out of your life everyday, whats left of your time? 6 hours? 8 hours? You think that you are a free man because you have 6 hours to spend everyday? You know whats worse? Even though you think that you have 6 hours of free time everyday, those 6 hours STILL dont belong to you, you have chores to do, buy food, go to the laundry, do your home work, take the kids out, pay your bills and this and that. Those 6 hours?………. GONE!

Do you see why slavery exists my friend?

Think with me for a moment , can it be possible that the middle class corporate employees are happy with their jobs? I don’t think so. I do not see any fun in staring at a p.c screen all day. There are very few who actually enjoy their jobs.

People are blindly following the norm, there is a system that is played out for you, you are nothing more than a battery. You work yourself so hard throughout the week and when the weekend comes, you recharge yourself and get prepared to be used in the next week. And when you have enough hard earned money – that is stained with your own blood – you escape your harsh reality by traveling to a tourist friendly area, where you spend all of your savings. You come back, freshly charged, very motivated to work, a month passes by and your esteem is hitting the ground again.

But what can I do?

My advice to you is this;

If you have a higher purpose or a goal that you want to achieve that might bring happiness and contentment to your heart or a purpose that might change humanity for the better, then it is completely fine to be patient and endure this sort of slavery. But if you find that there is absolutely no reason for you to suffer, then grab a paper and pen and start writing your thoughts down, what are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? How can you serve others? What makes you happy? Think my friend!

Note: Do not ever think that you can achieve great measures of success without hard work! That is a fundamental truth. All I’m saying is that if you are going to be a slave…. then be your own slave.
