Another wonderful quote from Rumi(A.S) that I want to share with you , I loved it absolutely when I read it for the first time, It is from the Book ‘Essential Rumi’ .
If we look at our lives today , What is it? For me, it is 5 days of doing some similar work and 2 days doing something which could not be done in those 5 days, then waiting for the weekend ,And my life goes on between the ’ week’ and ‘weekends’.
We are all stuck! Stuck in the circle, called routine! and there is no other way to live without this circle as well.
This routine has given us many things like getting worried for small little things about our work, home and elsewhere and building up stress .We manage to release some of it during weekends and get prepared for another week like a brave soldier. We crave for vacations and holidays , and dread to go back to our routine regardless it is a Sunday night or night before the end of vacation !
Coming back to the Quote, our minds are like empty pots, we are completely in power to choose what we fill it up with, most often we stuff it with too much worrying ! and we are so focussed while worrying that we hardly see the other good things in life. Worrying is nothing but a prison that confines us to think ,to see beyond , although the door is wide open.
Let’s empty our brains of worry and trust in Allah our creator, He is enough for all our problems,we cannot achieve anything by worrying . What we can do is be proactive and manage our lives better. Do the things that need to be done and wait and be patient. Be thankful to what we have, and fill our minds with good thoughts, gratitude and love for each other.
