Unconfined

A drop in the ocean promises to stand by another, till it is swept away by a large wave and merged in strong currents. It meets other drops but is unable to identify its kith and kin that came from the same river of origin, their identities being merged and submerged by  stronger force.

Life is as long as my vision goes, till Death poses a barrier to my view of the future. I don’t fancy being so limited, so I invent terms like eternity, infinity … for everything that is beyond my perception.

Energy is all I can think of, whatever its form, state or power.

I am happy being energy, as its intangibility and shapelessness aids my belief of being eternal – the intangible cannot be defined, caged, limited or confined.


Six Sentence Stories

  1. The energy of the crowd carries us along. The energy an audience gives to the performer. Speaking to people with negative energy drains us while speaking to people with positive energy energizes us. Loved the opening of the drop being subsumed by the wave and merging into other currents..

  2. I enjoyed this Six.

    In our individual searches for (fill in the blank with whatever insight/knowledge/wisdom applies), to hear another person report on their own progress is only a benefit.

    (Like, since the object of the search is not taught by parents/society/popular culture, how we express our progress is the best teacher to any and all on a similar path)

  3. Sorry to go all sciency but the laws of thermodynamics tell us that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. That supports your idea of energy as eternal and through your life you will spread it around generously until you have been transformed into some other sort of energy. Well played.

    1. please help me to edit this…… However, this belief does not imply that Muslims isolate themselves from the worldly day-to-day activities, rather an ideal Muslim should participate actively in the worldly affairs with the sole aim of achieving the pleasures of Allah in the Hereafter. Some religions preach you that material possessions or the worldly pleasures are bad for life and religion. It is wrong.
      When and where does ISLAM say not to do worldly things?
      Could you please provide me a single reference to this. Let’s come to your question directly. Getting a job. ISLAM says earn through good sources which means do not go and help building a porn web sites. It’s a common sense. ISLAM says seek knowledge from the cradle till grave so you can go to school and seek knowledge. Do not mix the culture of Balochistan (Province in Pakistan) with ISLAM where women are not allowed to go to school. This is not ISLAM, this is the corrupt system of that X tribe. The biggest problem with people like you is that you people have no knowledge about ISLAM and you people accept anything literally anything about ISLAM. ISLAM says earn through good sources and if you don’t have a job or if you are illiterate then how can you earn money? Unless you become a housekeeper. Yes, our goal is to worship only ALLAH SWT because earning through good means is form of worshipping.
      God won’t give us five senses, as well as desire for pleasure, and not want to use them. God want us to enjoy this worldly life, which is a gift to us. However, because in the pursuit of enjoyment we can try to disturb the balance of social life, so God reminds us of the rights of other people such as family, relatives, neighbors, society so that everyone can have fun in a balanced way. I’ve found most of us generally being more likely to be inactive and more likely to accept things the way they are without making an effort to change our situation.

      We should strive to better ourselves and better things and people around us and ultimately preparing yourself for everlasting joy (life after death) by submitting to the will of God in this world without denying the lawful pleasures of this world. Islam actually asks Muslims to live well in this world but that should not lead you to not fulfilling your duty to humanity and God. What the majority of Muslims or people in general don’t understand is that: the essence of being a human is to use your mind, your individual thinking in order to distinguish right from wrong. And not to inherit your mind. That’s a good way to the afterlife and your life in common. A great way to break through this pattern is to look at the Muslim history in which many famous figures were super active and spent their making the absolute best of their lives by working on what they wanted to achieve. Whether it is a religious, political, or personal level etc. They had a tremendous growth mindset. We have prophets who were kings, shepherds, the first to use the pen and sew clothes. I truly believe that every single Muslim should do what they are passionate about (within the shari’ah) so they can benefit the Ummah in their unique way. The beautiful thing about life is that you’re the first and only one living it. You get to define the orientation cross, the upper and lower bounds and thresholds for you to operate by and identify anomalies. Success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. Our different talents and strengths are due to the intellect Allah has blessed us with. People with a fixed mindset-those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love-to transform their lives and your own. And I would love to see this reflected in today’s Muslim ummah. People with growth mindset belief that all accomplishments are achieved through hard work, consistency, and dedication. And of course, it doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to achieve something big or have to achieve fame. It can involve something more common like working on fears, your marriage, your driver’s license, the Arabic language, a hobby that you would love to practice but never had the courage to. I want to blow that motivation and power back into our community. Alhamdulillah we all have different things we can do to build the Ummah and make it strong. May Allah help us with this. May Allah keep us steadfast in our Deen and make our children devout followers of the Quran and sunnah. “But seek, with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on thee, the Home of the Hereafter, nor forget thy portion in this world: but do thou good, as Allah has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief”.(Qur’an 28: 77)
      Lesson from Surah Yusuf: Dreams come true, If Allah wills. Keep striving, keep serving for it, keep praying for it, keep imploring for it, keep desiring. All things come in due time.
