It is difficult sometimes to talk to people we expect to meet the following day, so we tend to look for wells that cannot speak out or answer back. I do that every single time I post something on my blog. Now I have to be more careful I guess.
Life was never meant to be easy. It was a punishment, after all. But it is a short journey we must not overthink, overhate, or overexpect from. It is a short ride. Treat it that way.
Sometimes, we see a certain light. We think it is a sign, so we run after it. We chase after it. On the way, we build a whole world, a whole expected future with very minute details. We imagine the colors, the shapes, we imagine ourselves in frames and pictures. Then, we realize that it was not our light. Should we feel sad? of course. But it passes, like everything else does. But we also keep going. We should always keep going.
Hating people takes too much energy. That’s why I always just love them instead. Hatred consumes because it is against our true nature. The very few people I do not like make my soul weary whenever I remember them, so I tend not to. You can always feel indifferent though. Feeling indifferent is much more relaxing – to the mind and soul.
Others helped him so it is absolutely fine.
Our societies are not what stop us from getting what we want. No. Societies, people, events, incidents, fights, quarrels, money – are just reasons for us as humans, with limited ability to see the future, to move on; to stop asking, “Why!” We just answer, “The stupid society”. These factors are there to offer us closures when a particular dream is not truly ours to achieve or reach. The society is not a barrier. The society plays a role in preventing what had been already decided not to come true. Why? Because Allah knows better.
We, people, think we know. We, people, think that we are sure. What we want is what is kheir. It is the right. thing. The. good. thing. I am sorry to break this to you: It is not. If it does not come true, it is not a good thing. It is hard to believe this because it goes against our emotions and dreams and wants and desires. But it is true. Despite all that, it is true.
Sometimes I get scared. This is my secret. I get scared because I don’t know what is going to happen. I do not know how the future – how tomorrow is going to be. I feel scared every time I realize that no matter what I do I will never be able to see the different possibilities of my future. However, I go back to my senses every single time I remember that Allah is taking care of everything. Who would be more Merciful than the Ever Merciful? My Creator? The One Who knows me better than I know myself?
We change. Our minds change. Our ideas change. What we think is going to be better for us now might not be good for us in the future. That is why some things do not come true. Because if things happen they cannot unhappen. He saves us the trouble of feeling miserable in the future for the choices we once made.
He knows better. We have our closures. We keep on until it is all over. It will all be over. That’s what matters.
