Echoes of my heart (Anonymous)

Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of our hearts. we fall in love and there are times that we lose in our own emotions. more often than that, we wonder why there is love that grows and love that grows cold, we could start to search for an answer and try to find where love has gone wrong. but in the end, we find ourselves were we started.

We cannot questions love for it has its own reasons. love will always be as it always has been silent, mysterious and deeply profound. many even believe that love is forever, that love never dies. only to be disillusioned in the end.

When we find our hearts empty and longing. we mistakenly have looked at love as a need to be fulfilled. but love is only a gift given to us. we should not hold it in our hands for we may never find the courage to let it go when it decided to leave, we should only embrace it with warmth and glows while it lasts, and then freely open our arms when it decided to say goodbye.

When we fall in love with someone, we don’t want feeling to end,for it is in everything we are and everything we want it to be. we pray that love would stay and grow in our hearts. but if it doesn’t, then we should not let our own lives to be taken by it.for life should not end when heartaches begin. there is always a reason why we have to move on, when we have to say goodbye to the feelings we wanted to stay forever. let us not wave our hearts with a heavy hearts. for love has to set its wings free and find a place where it belongs. we may have to lose it but then again, when we close our eyes and listen to the echoes of our hearts, we will hear that feeling resounding silently forever. then will know that it has never left us.. love will always stay. it will always be there reminding us that we should be thankful and happy not because we have lost love, but once in our lives that feeling lived in our hearts and made us happy..

And God said “No” 

I asked god to take away my pride and god said "no".
he said it was not him to take away but for me to give up.

I asked god to make up handicapped whole and god said "no".
he said her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.

I asked god to grant me patience and god said "no".
he said that patience is a by product of tribulation. it isn’t granted, it is earned.

I asked god to gvive me happiness and god said "no".
he said he gives blessings, happiness is up to me.

I asked god to spare me pain and god said "no".
he said "suffering draws you apart from wordly cares and brings you closer to me".

I asked god to make my spirit grow and god said "no".
he said i must grow on my own, but he will prune me to make me fruitful..

'La Tahzan' (I dedicate this to you)
maDR ‘Aidh al Qarni’s famous book - ‘La Tahzan’ (don’t be sad) courtesy of c wulan:
this is an excerpt from the book:

If you are stricken by poverty,
others are chained in debt.

If you don’t have shoes, others have no feet.
If you feel pain now, others have been aching for years.
If your son dies, other have lost many.

If you have sinned, then repent.
If you have committed a mistake, correct it.
The doors of repentance are ever open!
The fountain of forgiveness is every rich!
So, don’t be sad!

Let all bygones be bygones!
What is predestined for you, you shall see it!
Being sad will not change anything!
So don’t be sad!

Sadness spoils your life!
Destroys your happiness!
And turns it into wretchedness!
So don’t be sad!

Supplication is your shield!
Prayer is your beacon!
Prostration is your means!
So don’t be sad!

See how vast is the earth!
How nice are the gardens and forests!
How bright are the stars!
All are happy, but you are sad!
So, don’t be sad!

You have sweet water to drink!
Fresh air to breathe!
Feet to walk with!
You sleep safely in your bed!
So, why be sad?

Every cloud has a silver lining!
After long nights, come the bright sun!
Life will soon give you a smile!
So be ready to get it!
And don’t be sad!

Real life is that spent in happiness!
So cross out you sad days from your age!
Peace of mind is the real treasure!
Sorrow avails not!
So don’t be sad!
