Ramadan day 15. It felt like it just came yesterday. I am so not ready for it to be over. I love the fast, the ambition, focus and dedication it has given me to myself, my lord and Religion. 15 days ago I was not in the mental state I am in now, I feel so at peace and clear of all negative energy. I am eager for the next 15 days and want to indulge in every second and minute of it without any distractions. The mercy of this month is so beautiful, I can physically feel it in every aspect. Ramadan always comes at the right time. I am truly thankful to be experiencing this Ramadan of 2022. God is truly great and merciful.
those who believe and whose hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. Surely in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find comfort. Sura 13 Ayat 28 of the Holy Quran
Life has thrown many curveballs, I have been blessed to duck and dive and make my way out with the power of prayer and mercy of the lord. Trust In God is the ultimate key to it all. I will never loose trust in God for he has seen me through the darkest of days. The best way of adjusting to life as I know now, is living in the moment. This very moment is the truth, what is presented before me should be the only focus. yes it is great to plan for the future, but to ponder , worry and stress about what is to come is a great way to meet with anxiety and depression. We have no control over the future, there fore we must plan , hope for the best and leave the rest for the almighty to carry out.
Let go and let God
Living in the moment and focusing on the now leads to peace and clarity of thought. What was can not be changed or brought back. No sense of holding onto things that cannot be undone. Let it all go and let God take care of it all. One of the biggest challenges I have had for an extremely long time is letting go of the past. Anytime I would sincerely do my best to be on top and move to new heights in life, a cloud from my past would float to the top of my being and Rain on me showers of doubt, hate , regret, animosity and revenge. Holding on to the past has crippled me in many ways ; since letting go and moving forward with trust in the almighty, I have regained a better insight. The past has mad me feel bitter and ugly. But my overpowering faith continues to break me out of that nasty bitter place.
Art and the present moment
One of the reasons I love art , being an artist and creating is because of the great space it puts me in. Everything is present, every stroke of the brush , color of paint , hand movement etc gives me an airy feeling of just being. I thank you all so much for following and supporting me on my journey.
