Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Make a DECLARATION :)

This is my gift to my fellow youth in Pakistan for 2016.
Everyone above 16… LISTEN WITH OPEN EARS.
Do not idolize greatness, learn how they became the good part they are, and become yourself.

This man is a wonder. LISTEN to him and GROW.

Wakeup HUMANITY

There are no rich or poor in this world.

There are only those that have learned how to use their willpower to get what they want and those who have not learned how to use their willpower to get what they need.

Charity is obligated for those that know the art of manifestation of willpower – to be given to those – that have not learnt the art of manifestation yet.

This is how karma flows from the haves to the have-nots.

Those who do not believe or practice charity – deny this fact of life and miss out on its transformative capacity.

Desire

You are what your deep, driving desire is.

As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.

– Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5

Contentment

Many things upon this earth are an unsolved mystery still – still after major advances in technology and our capacity to see through a variety of enigmas… we are clue less about a lot in this world.

One very important puzzle in life is the state of contentment.
At what level and in the presence of which factors do humans achieve contentment. Is it a constant or a variable that continues to shift in its perception?

I have opinions of course of my own and ideas, but to say for certainty how and why, is not entirely possible. It is still an enigma that most everyone struggles with.

I would just like to share a portion of a Urdu poetry that Jagjit Singh sang as a song…
The most important bit of it was this.

“Dunya jisee kehtay hain, wo aik jadoo ka khilona hai.
Miljayee to miti hai, Khojayee to sona hai”…

It means:
That which we call the world, is a toy of magic.
When you possess it, it feels like earth and dust but when you loose it, it turns to gold.

I can not conceive of a more appropriate way that this writer has placed the complexity of the contradiction of contentment in life.

When humans gain the object of their desires. It becomes difficult for them to continue to appreciate it and feel the charm they felt before, yet when they ignore it and loose it in time and it starts to pull away from them they severely feel it’s absence, it’s true value and repent its loss.

Perhaps the simple truths of life are not as complex as we think they are… We just need to contend with what we get in life by appreciating its value. It’s the only way that we can stay aware that what we have in our hands is not earth and dust but an object of great value that few possess and that it is rare and more than gold.

Magnets & Life

A simple lesson to draw from one of life’s scientific and very practical fact.

Have you ever taken a big magnet and broken it into two?
When the one becomes two. They oppose yet when they are made whole, through tremendous effort and force once again. They become one bigger and more powerful magnet.

That is why God guides that we should persevere in a difficult situation because like the magnets in opposition that difficulty will become a force of success when the two opposing become one again.

Stay hopeful and stay cheerful in life. Always!

Strategic Patience

Insignificant as it might appear… Yet the thought expressed below should be considered deeply.

Patience is a virtue. It is so because it mainly helps one stay composed and focused to persist. The win is made through persistence not patience, yet to stay persistent requires patience.

Patience varies in its applications and it’s forms. Sometimes it is of a long-term nature and sometimes it is of the short-term nature.
To have it requires a grip on both forms.

Strategic patience has to do with the short-term, because it is about the type of patience one has to exercise when the immediate pressure of a situation becomes extremely agitating and confining.

Having this type of patience means that our focus stays strong and so we persist to win in difficult situations.
