Stay Away From Anger..

 Stay away from Anger.. 

  It hurts ..Only You! 

 If you are right then there is no need to get angry, 

 And if you are wrong then you don’t have any right to get angry. 

 Patience with family is love,

 Patience with others is respect. 

 Patience with self is confidence and Patience with Allah is faith. 

 Never Think Hard about the PAST, It brings Tears…

 Don’t think more about the FUTURE, It brings Fear… 

 Live this Moment with a Smile,It brings Cheer.

 Every test in our life makes us bitter or better,

 Every problem comes to make us or break us, 

The choice is ours whether we become victims or victorious.

 Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful.

 Do you know why Allah created gaps between fingers? 

 So that someone who is special to you comes and fills those gaps by holding your hand forever.

 Happiness keeps You Sweet..But being sweet brings happiness..

Gratitude

Gratitude

Gratitude is an immensely powerful force that we can use to expand our happiness,  create loving  relationships, and even improve our health.

Life of those who cultivated a grateful outlook:

  • Felt better about their lives as a whole
  • Experienced greater levels of joy and happiness
  • Felt optimistic about the future
  • Got sick less often
  • Exercised more regularly
  •  More energy, enthusiasm, determination, and focus
  • Made greater progress toward achieving important personal goals
  • Slept better and awoke feeling refreshed
  • Felt stronger during trying times
  • Enjoyed closer family ties
  • Were more likely to help others and offer emotional support
  • Experienced fewer symptoms of stress

If you want more happiness, joy, and energy, gratitude is clearly a crucial quality to cultivate. It is a fullness of heart that moves us from limitation and fear to expansion and love.

When we’re appreciating something, our ego moves out of the way and we connect with our soul….it is like rebooting your soul.

Gratitude brings our attention into the present, which is the only place where miracles can unfold. The deeper our appreciation, the more we see with the eyes of the soul and the more our life flows in harmony with the creative power of the universe.

 Here are a few powerful gratitude practices for you to try:

1. Keep a Gratitude Journal:

Each day for a month, we should ask ourselves the following three questions:

Who or what inspired me today?

What brought me happiness today?

What brought me comfort and deep peace today?

This practice, would help us find more  meaning and joy in our lives and would lead to profound inner transformation.

As you write in your journal, challenge yourself by not repeating items from the previous days, for this will make you look more deeply at all the “little” things that enhance your life and give you joy . . . waking in a warm bed; the aroma of your morning coffee, a phone call from a friend; the ability to touch, see, or hear; electricity; the beating of your heart; a hug.

You can write in your journal just before bed, when you wake up in the morning or just before you meditate. The time of day isn’t important; what is important is that you consistently take a few moments to consciously focus your mind on your blessings. Commit to keeping a journal for a month. What we put our attention on expands in our life. By offering gratitude for all the goodness we experience, we’re inviting the universe to give us more and more of what we want.

 2. Write a Thank You Letter:

Make a list of at least five people who have had a profound impact on your life. Choose one and write a thank you letter expressing gratitude for all the gifts you’ve received from that person. If possible, deliver your gratitude letter in person.

In studies of people who have practiced this form of gratitude, the results have been amazing. Often the recipient of the letter had no idea what an impact he or she had had on another person and were deeply touched by the expression of such authentic gratitude. While we may often thank people verbally, the written word can often be even more powerful because someone has taken the time to write their appreciation.  A letter can also be re-read and treasured, creating joy and love that will continue to ripple out into the universe.

3. Take a Gratitude Walk

This is a particularly useful practice when you’re feeling down or filled with stress and worry. Set aside 20 minutes (or longer if you can) and walk in your neighbourhood, through a park, around your office, or somewhere in nature.

As you walk, consider the many things for which you are grateful . . . nurturing relationships, material comforts, the body that allows you to experience the world, the mind that allows you to really understand yourself, and your essential spiritual nature. Breathe, pause, and be grateful for the air that is filling your lungs and making your life possible.

Pay attention to your senses – everything you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling, and maybe even tasting – and see how many things you can find to feel grateful for.

This is a powerful way to shift your mood and open to the flow of abundance that always surrounds you.

 

 

A Story With A Moral: This Too Shall Pass

A Story With A Moral: This Too Shall Pass

 Once a king called upon all of his wise men and asked them,” Is there a Zikr or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstance, in every place and in every time. In every joy, every sorrow, every defeat and every victory? One answer for all questions? Something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me? Tell me is there any Zikr?”

All the wise men were puzzled by the King’s question. They thought and thought. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appealed to all of them. They went to the king and gave him something written on paper, with a condition that the king was not to see it out of curiosity. Only in extreme danger, when the King finds himself alone and there seems to be no way, only then he can see it. The King put the papers under his Diamond ring.

Sometime later, the neighbors attacked the Kingdom. King and his army fought bravely but lost the battle. The King had to flee on his horse. The enemies were following him. Getting closer and closer. Suddenly the King found himself standing at the end of the road – that road was not going anywhere. Underneath there was a rocky valley thousand feet deep. If he jumped into it, he would be finished…and he could not return because it was a small road…the sound of enemy’s horses was approaching fast. The King became restless. There seemed to be no way.

 Then suddenly he saw the Diamond in his ring shining in the sun, and he remembered the message hidden in the ring. He opened the diamond and read the message. The message was – ” THIS TOO SHALL PASS”

The King read it. Again read it. Suddenly something struck him- Yes ! This too will pass. Only a few days ago, I was enjoying my kingdom. I was the mightiest of all the Kings. Yet today, the Kingdom and all his pleasure have gone. I am here trying to escape from enemies. Like those days of luxuries have gone, this day of danger too will pass. A calm came on his face. He kept standing there. The place where he was standing was full of natural beauty. He had never known that such a beautiful place was also a part of his Kingdom.  The revelation of the message had a great effect on him. He relaxed and forgot about those following him. After a few minutes he realized that the noise of the horses and the enemy coming was receding. They moved into some other part of the mountains and were nowhere near him.

 The King was very brave. He reorganized his army and fought again. He defeated the enemy and regained his empire. When he returned to his empire after victory, he was received with much fanfare. The whole capital was rejoicing in the victory. Everyone was in a festive mood. Flowers were being showered on King from every house, from every corner.

For a moment King said to himself,” I am one of the bravest and greatest King. It is not easy to defeat me. With all the reception and celebration he saw an ego emerging in him. Suddenly the Diamond of his ring flashed in the sunlight and reminded him of the message. He opened it and read it again: “THIS TOO SHALL PASS”.

He became silent. His face went through a total change – from the egoist he moved to a state of utter humbleness. If this too is going to pass, it is not yours. The defeat was not yours, the victory is not yours. You are just a watcher. Everything passes by. We are witnesses of all this. We are the perceives. Life comes and goes. Happiness comes and goes. Sorrow comes and goes.

Moral: Now as we have read this story, we should sit silently and evaluate our own life. This too will pass. Think of the moments of joy and victory in our life. Think of the moment of Sorrow and defeat. Are they permanent? They all come and pass away.  Life just passes away. There is nothing permanent in this world. Everything changes except the law of change. Think over it from our own perspective. We have seen all the changes. We have survived all setbacks, all defeats and all sorrows. All have passed away. The problems in the present, they too will pass away. Because nothing remains forever. Joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin. They both will pass away. We are just a witness of change. Experience it, understand it, and enjoy the present moment – this too shall pass

The Do’s To Beat Stress.

The Do’s To Beat Stress.

 

  • Avoid tea and coffee: Nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and refined sugar products are all stimulants, so will not calm you down. If you’re stressed, steer clear of tea, coffee and cigarettes-keep yourself well-hydrated by drinking water instead or chamomile tea.
  • “I can definitely deal with this.”: Think up a self-affirming mantra to repeat to yourself (e.g. “I deserve calm in my life”, or “I have a choice in every situation”). Repeat it to yourself whenever you feel tense.
  • Agree with others once in a while: Life should not be a constant battleground. , so even if you disagree with someone, avoid conflict every now and again by just agreeing or keeping quiet. They have a right to their opinion (even if they are wrong!), just as you do.
  • Listen to your body: When you are tired, hungry or thirsty, do something about it: rest, eat or drink.
  • Learn how to say “no”: Simple, but effective. Where a ‘no’ is the appropriate response, say it without guilt.
  • Get organised: make a list of all the things that you need to do list them in order of genuine importance note what you need to do personally and what can be delegated prioritise things that need doing immediately demote tasks that can wait you may find some tasks don’t actually need doing at all.
  • And breathe it out: Try this breathing exercise: Sit or stand in a relaxed position. Slowly inhale through your nose, counting to five in your head. Let the air out from your mouth, counting to eight in your head as it leaves your lungs. Repeat several times. As you breathe, let your abdomen expand outward, rather than raising your shoulders. This is a more relaxed and natural way to breathe, and helps your lungs fill themselves more fully with fresh air. Repeat a few times to release tension, or for several minutes as a form of meditation. If you like, make your throat a little tighter as you exhale so the air comes out like a whisper. This type of breathing is used in some forms of yoga and can add additional tension relief.
  • Acupressure: You have acupressure points either side of the bridge of your nose. Rub there gently, and around your eyes.
  • Face exercises: Relieve tension in the face by lifting your eyebrows, and then drag your fingertips -pressing firmly – from your forehead to the back of your head.
  • Draft an email: Get it all down in an outpouring of anger and stress, saying exactly what you think, why it’s unfair and what you think should happen. Now instead of sending it to the rightful recipient, send it to yourself, you would feel so much better.

The Signs Of Stress.

 The Signs Of Stress.

Stressed? Aren’t we all? Between work, family obligations and money worries, it may all feel too overwhelming sometimes.  Of course, there is good stress and bad stress.

The 1st one can motivate you to become more productive.

The 2nd second kind, the type that makes you lose sleep, can actually be bad for your mental and physical health.

Here’s a handy guide to help you assess whether you’re stressed, how serious your stress is, and how to deal with it.

Stress warning signs:

Of course, different people deal with stress in different ways, but here is a list of mental and physical symptoms to help you understand if you’re stressed.

The mental symptoms may involve you being:

 •Angry

 •Depressed

 •Anxious

 •Always hungry, or having no appetite

 •Crying often

 •Have trouble sleeping and feel tired

 •Have trouble concentrating

 

The physical symptoms may involve:

 •Chest pains

 •Constipation, or diarrhoea

 •Cramps, or muscle aches

 •Feeling dizzy, or fainting

 •Engaging in nervous behaviour like biting your nails

 •Twitches, or experiencing pins and needles

 •Feeling restless

 •Having sexual problems, from erectile dysfunction to lowered sex drive.

 •Feeling breathless

 •Can’t sleep

Having just a few of these symptoms may indicate that you are stressed, and you should address the issue.

How stress works:

When you are in a stressful situation, your body releases the hormones cortical, adrenaline, and noradrenalin, and these go on to cause the physical symptoms of stress.You may start sweating, and your blood pressure and heart rate may rise. This, in turn, may undermine your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness, as well as lead your body to release fat and sugar into your blood stream, which may lead you to gain weight. As stress raises your blood pressure, if you are stressed in the long term, you can develop high blood pressure, which in turn can increase your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.If you feel that you are suffering from stress, see you GP, but do not accept long term tranquilliser prescriptions.

Ask for help from a psychologist, stress counsellor, relaxation therapist, even alternative therapist. If these do not work, you must go back to your GP for professional guidance
