“Reading Is To The Mind, What Exercise Is To The Body” — Joseph Addison
I ask my little brother, “why you are sad these days when your exams have already just finished?” He replied: “It is just boring all day and nothing special to do, and nowhere to go.”
I instantly recommended reading one of my read books. To my dismay, what he said made me wonder how will I make him read something general and fun, except reading his coursework for a school.
He gives several reasons why he will not read or enjoy reading them. I had learned…
Are you afraid?
Of what they will say?
Or what will they think?
Who are these people that gossip,
Do they even know you?
Life is short. There is no right way or wrong way,
If it fully satisfies your conscience
Do it, or regret it. Start breaking the chain
For the world has changed, you can too, society will too.
People thoughts and judgments will always let you down,
But when you stand up to them, they will cheer at your success.
What does matter? Is but how you gossip about yourself to your subconscious,
People that inspires or motivates…
Very often you will hear parents screaming and instilling fears in their children — this fear can be of themselves or ghosts — for one and the only reason, to curb their curiosity and silence them because they can not give them due time nor they can answer their inquisition.
They unwillingly and unconsciously harm their children's sense of worth, confidence, and perfective of lives; it haunts them till a larger part of their lives.
Man's biggest enemy is fear, this can kill him when all the tools fail to do, it cripples man's abilities and destroys him, but from…
Candles burning bright, giving light to her life
Little she did know she is about to die without light
Women live like a light sacrificing their bright life
Selflessly giving without demands, nourishing others' lives.
A woman life is too fascinating to observe
Sometimes loved for her beauty, and sometimes hated for her qualities
Pain has all been her life, exhibit in her body and feelings
Ignites by the world for she dares to pursue her potential in the public sphere
Her talk is intricate, and her thoughts are overloaded
She is a creature that lives to bring joy with her…
Books are written for specific purposes, this book is for spiritual purposes — It explores how we can improve our relationship with the creator. It has many lessons to be explored and ponder over, not all is for everyone. However, some of the insights I get from the book are as follow, which I think will be relevant if applied universally and can be seen in all religions.
Although she was speaking strictly about Islam, her message can be generalized to all humanity. It is that we should find contentment in ourselves through spiritual means. That means through a connection…
(This is review of a religious book based on psychology, Islam and spirituality; authored by a Islamic religious scholar)
I always wanted to read books on Islam, especially those books that claim to provide contentment of hearts — this idea intrigued me because I think I am also in search of something that could console my life. Some find their purpose in life in their relationships, mission, hobbies, and work; however, finding peace in beliefs and spiritual energy was always beyond me. In this quest, I choose this book to understand how it makes a person satisfied innermost.
Incarcerated by the opinion of people,
I lost myself in the bog of despair.
I am incapable and ugly,
I listened and listened till it became my reality,
Or perhaps I impose it on personality.
Every evil whisper has its own story to tell, a sin to commit,
A life to live that they can’t live,
A dream to achieve which they cannot materialize,
And an evil desire which they are too afraid to accomplish,
All want me to be them, caging what I say, want, or dream of becoming.
There is darkness in here, I want to glare a…
