Against the Currents

Restless and relentless, I arrive once more at the shore to restart my voyage to the edge of the world........or perhaps the universe. My countless and futile efforts have always put me down in the past but couldn't keep me there permanently. As i'm like waves in the ocean; every time i fall, i learn to pick myself up. This unforgiving world may cast me out every time but i'll keep coming back for more.........and more.

So what is it different about me this time? Have i acquired a new skill? Do i bring some exceptional knowledge? Am i more wise now?.....sigh....perhaps not. Or perhaps i don't need them to begin with. I just set out to the sunset like I've always done before. With the belief that regardless of everything, i'll always be more powerful beyond measure. That all you need is pure passion to fulfill your legacy. And that you never back down from a good fight and keep fighting till the last drop of blood.

Silence of the Winds

Once there existed a small town in a remote piece of land. The residents of that town were ethically backward and morally corrupt. Children at early age were given no education on how to behave, men treated their women with utmost disrespect and elderly were left on their own. Any modern society would've cried tears of blood after witnessing the horror displayed at that town. Injustice ran rampant. Hatred grew stronger. Humanity stooped to new levels. But humanity was not going to face such barbarism alone. Because when devils reign on earth goes unabated, angels come down to balance the equation. And an angel did arrive in that town on one fine cloudy and windy morning.......

She....sigh..... even the mere thought of her gets the best of writers mesmerized. She was nothing like anyone has ever known. After arriving at that town in a hooded dress to conceal her beauty from the evil surrounding, she first approached a gathering of children who ganged up and were beating another kid mercilessly. She quickly intervened and took the poor kid under her protection and politely requested those other kids to show some empathy. Her own empathy had such a magical effect that those children immediately complied. That princess in disguise moved on to other parts of the town and saw an elderly who was gingerly walking towards his home. She grabbed his hand with immense care and accompanied the elderly all the way to his home. As that angel on earth was about to depart from that town, she saw a women sitting and crying at the front porch of her own home because her husband had beaten her up but only this time with more cruelty than before. She approached her too, helped her up and raised her chin which her soft fingers and told her to go back to her man and assured her that everything will be fine. The innocence in her eyes had another mysterious reaction on that women and when that women went back to her man, he feel in love with his own wife for the first time and remained so forever.

Angels do exist in human form and that beautiful specimen remains a living proof. Just before her departure from that town, she looked back, lowered her hood, raised her palm and blew a kiss towards the town as the winds carried her purity to all the dead hearts of that town. The devils reign ended afterwards and the age of love and compassion began.

She has never been seen after that day.............until now :)

Happy birthday Ayesha :)

The Rising Mind

I knocked I kicked down the doors of the deepest, darkest dungeon inside me and entered for the umpteenth time. As I walked past the rubble of my destruction and watched my failures from the past, I was filled with disgust not because of what I've become....sigh....but what I could've been. But I wasn't  there that day to mourn my losses. I don't have time to bleed anymore. I was there to grab a very special force.....the feather of the phoenix's wing. So i descended deeper into the dungeon as the demons made every effort to stop me. Some of them were even shocked to see me adventuring inwards. After all, how many of us are educated enough to do so??? Finally i reached my destination where i found what i was looking for on an isolated piece of ground. I bend down to grab the feather and suddenly a surge of passion took hold of me for a brief moment. I was reminded of an old adage that "heroes get remembered but legends never die".I then came out of the dungeon, looked up the heavens and prepared for more time....

It's not about how many times we fall but the way we rise everytime we do

Past your Pleasures and beyond your Pains

We humans have an insatiable desire to acquire as much pleasure as we can. To acquire all that our body and mind crave for.......and to have it immediately. That is the only goal we live by. I don't mean to be some deranged weirdo who suggests to act otherwise but I would like to suggest an alternative way in achieving that goal. Yes, we do need pleasure and that should be our ultimate goal but through my limited life experience, I've come to realize that pleasure doesn't breed pleasure.Instead pain breeds pleasure. The more pleasure we sacrifice, the more pleasure we attain. We need to challenge our body, mind, heart and soul by voluntarily passing it through some tough times in order to achieve peace and pleasure. I choose the word voluntarily because its better to choose pain first before it chooses you. Also this is no one-time exercise as it needs to be done consistently in order for it to work. And just like any good investment, it starts off with losses and then achieves profits after some time. Patience is the key to this process and it needs to be taken slowly. Never go for perfection instead go for improvement. I know it's pretty hard to translate all of this into action but i didn't make the rules. I'm just telling them the way they are.  

No pain, No gain

Me vs Me

War! That's what it has come down to. Tonight I'm going to War! War to reclaim my soul. War to rectify my mistakes. War to change myself.......War to defeat myself! All my life I've tried fighting alot of people and alot of things but failed miserably. In hindsight I've come to realize that I've been fighting the wrong enemy. Or perhaps it wasn't the right time to fight them. Besides there is a bigger and more brutal enemy running in my blood, veins, heart and mind that needs to be considered first. It is because of this masked enemy that has cost me all my failures. But I can't fight this powerful enemy alone. I can't fight this life long war alone. Especially when it has weakened and blinded my heart and soul. I need help from even more powerful force. A force that can obliterate anything, anytime with no hesitation. The architect. The destroyer. The king of kings and the ruler of beloved creator ALLAH.

May Allah unfreeze our hearts, Ameen

Allah protect me from myself so that I can take care of my enemies
