Living Life like an Adventure

Image
Life is an adventure. Its sometimes rough and tough, sometimes bliss and love. Whats the point of being on an adventure of live if you aren’t having the ups and downs and a full experience of life? Far too many people live life in a ordinary way and then wonder why they feel bored and meaningless. If you’re life is boring, it’s because you’re not living it fully.


An Adventurous life is all about actions that are brave, bold, daring and courageous and those that make you feel alive and earn the bliss of purposefulness and meaningfulness of continuously living it fully to the core.

What can a man learn from rocks

Image
What can a man learn from rocks in the wilderness. A man can learn from a rock to stand his ground, be confident, unshakable and concrete in his deep authenticity. Be his true self and create his own destiny. Be wild, open, down to earth, humble and free. Grow into being the magnificent boulder of any shape or size he wants to be. Learn to be self-reliant, seek no approval or permission of others to be himself. Be complete and enough by himself with no need to impress others. Learn to be resilient, courageous, passionate and persevere in the face of life's challenges just like how the rocks bear the wind, the sun, the rain.

Explore his own primal experience with other men to define, know, and claim who he is just like how rocks are always found to be around together. A man can learn to live his deepest, fullest wholehearted and sacred self, just like how the rocks are themselves forever.

Total Destiny

Image
Belief in total destiny is oppression against ones free will as this belief states that everything is governed by God and Man has no Role in it due to lack of choice and freedom of will, that Man is not a free agent and is a helpless tool in divine hands like a toy.



An absolute belief in Destiny is Absurd as it makes life aimless and Vain. if Destiny is true then there is no merit or demerit in any mans action, and if everything is destined the very concept of Divine Justice becomes Null and Void as God himself destines and then punishes or rewards based on his chosen Destiny.

Divine Justice itself demands no compulsion and any action for reward or punishment has to be of a free agent, done out of own free will and choice.

Therefore Man is created by God but is a free agent and has complete free will and choice and can choose whatever he wants to do in Life.

Masks of Identity

Image
unaware we wear many masks or roles in life that define us intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. These masks become our identity. 



The masks that are most difficult to detach from are of being a parent, son, daughter, employee, boss, student. Such masks tend to limit our potential and growth when we fail to grow out of them long after their roles are over.

Offering Help with Kindness and Respect

Image
The very act of offering help to someone creates a temporary loss of power, status, self esteem and independence for the person receiving help and gain in power, status for the person offering help, leading to a power imbalance in the relationship.

its utmost important that when we help someone we practice good etiquette, establish a connection first by appreciating and acknowledging the person seeking help for their courage and show your humbleness. always seek the consent to offer help even when asked to help, create a safe space, engage with care, kindness, empathy and compassion. and most importantly always help with an intention of being in service to the other with gratitude.

Self Realisation and the Egoistic Self.

Image
On the sufi/irfan path of self Realisation, the seeker is never safe from the egoistic self which wants to preserve itself and its needs and desires. During the first stage of conquering nafs-e-ammara(the commanding self) there is a intense struggle against the egoistic worldly desires and the seeker finds some success with self control and self discipline. 



The ego then eases this journey and helps the seeker see some more success in terms of good behavior and more self control. This is a essentially a trap by the ego. And as the seeker prematurely proceeds towards the second stage of conquering the nafs-e-lawama(the blaming self). 

The ego self  waits here with another trap and injects hypocrisy, arrogance and anger into the mind of the seeker against the teacher/master: “It says You are now as good as your master; not only do you know as much as he does, the way you behave is better. If he were able to apply what he teaches in his own lives he wouldn’t be half of what you are. 

You do…
