Ego downgrade

 

ego

One of the most destructive things you can do as a parent is to never check your child’s ego. You then raise a person that grows to be a spoiled brat well into their adult life. A monster that everyone has to step out of the way for as their ego fills the room and bulldozes all that is in front.

They make lousy spouses, lousy employees and indecent human beings that run through life with blinders on, tunnel visioned in their ignorance of people around them. If you haven’t been taught from a young age about how to subdue your ego, do yourself a favour and pick up a book or two by the great Muslim Sufi scholars who are the masters that carried on the traditions of Islam in teaching appropriate human mannerisms and thorough character development to benefit yourself and mankind.

Light upon light

Some books are treasure chests of wisdom, eloquence and value. Page after page, you want to highlight lines but there is so much to highlight you may as well colour the whole book.

A small excerpt.

‘Those who through an evil disposition which may have previously been dormant, are willingly misled, expose their true nature so that it can be clearly seen. Caught under the light, they hasten towards darkness, they hasten home to where they belong.’

Heaven’s Real Estate

The problem with a person with sectarian mindset isn’t that they are venomous and self-destructive as much as they are limited in creed understanding. They limit heaven to the confines of their minds only, as if heaven is tiny and cannot accommodate any more than a finite number of available spaces.

Whether they acknowledge it or not, this actually implies a limited belief in God and his infinitude, omnipotence, mercy and generosity.

Heaven has vast real estate, plenty of space for those who believe in God’s Oneness

Death is a wedding night

‘Death is the wedding night of the marriage with eternity’: Bab ‘Aziz the movie

I have not watched a more eloquent, poetic, spiritual and inspiring movie.
The writer of this movie is one special mind and rich soul. Do yourself a favour, watch it and tell me what you think about it.
