no OSHO for me :p

Now this Osho man here, he’s GOTTA be kidding me! This is the second quote by this guy which seriously makes me wonder… Seems like a very troubled soul! Never gonna get how gazillions of people can indulge into this kind of philosophy. So here’s what he said that reminded me how his other quote had ticked me off.

Osho- Being alone

And actually, on the contrary, the capacity to be alone and one enjoying his company all alone, all by himself… Wouldn’t that completely reflect a selfish trait? Which can’t be a positive thing, or can it? Unless one is running away in the other direction if he sees the opposite one leading towards Dajjal, well I’m sure that kind of selfishness would be globally acceptable amongst the Muslims at least 🙂 And logically, the other part would be incorrect. As per this Osho dude, “only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person”; If people are by themselves and *tick tick* ALONE, they would surely want and desire to be loved, well probably. And how would being alone increase one’s capacity of the ability to share? It can certainly make one stupid, and in their last days, sadly, leave them wondering how beautiful life could have been had they been a part of someone else’s life and involved others in their own; ’cause the truth in fact is that “Sharing is Caring”. If one is alone, he probably would develop a habit of the kind of privacy for his possessions that would annoy him if he is ever expected to share. So, excuse me but *ehem ehem* I gotta lmao. And OH MY DEAR GOD! How can one, who is capable of being alone go deeper into the soul of another? Sorry Osho man! That did not really sink in. And this thing where he associates love with possession is a completely different subject…

love- Osho

Love is not about possession. Those who love, value people, and not things. Things can be possessed. Not love. An infant is dependent on the 2 people who love him the most, and with time as the child grows, the parents are dependent on their offspring’s love and support. That dependency, has other names. It comprises of not just love and support, but also infinite respect, trust, a bond like no other, compassion and several other emotions that build the essence of the relationship in its entirety. A child and his parents is just one example… there are several more. The dependency such relations have on one another is far from material possessions and their importance.

Going forward, to me, love being an addiction seems more like a Psychotic disorder which reminds of me some creatures who were obsessed with the idea that every person they met were either totally into them or had a problem with them, so yeah, they were basically too full of themselves. Sorry for sounding mean, but that’s the truth. The latter part of this quote is utterly disturbing for me to elaborate upon, so I shall instead go now and happily indulge into a much sane, n absolutely fictitious adaptation of a Mughal romantic novel by Indu Sundaresan.,

By the way, I have nothing against Osho. Some of his reads are actually quite interesting and thought provoking. This is solely my personal opinion upon a couple of quotes by him. Adieu 🙂

‘The’ Key

Thank you brother Bilal Phillips for this reminder yet again!

You know how it is when one under a lot of pressure and anxiety begins asking to oneself WHY?? WHY ME? WHY NOW? WHY HERE? WHY WHY WHY??? We have the tendency and so we just keep forgetting and in the end feel helpless.. and finally, exhausted, expectantly look up into the sky searching for an answer.. secretly praying.. hmmm.. depressing!

You know what pal, He does listen! He does guide!

Here’s the latest status update of Brother Bilal Phillips on the matter.. we need to realize where we go wrong.. patience indeed, is the one key.

The One Key it is! Have Patience.. keep sabr.

Bilal Phillips wrote:

Allaah not only said: “Surely with every difficulty comes ease,” (94):6 but he also repeated the statement for special emphasis, word for word, in the verse following it. This is a divine promise of mercy, wherein, Allaah clearly states that He would never continuously burden an individual. There will always be a time of ease following all periods of hardships, therefore, man is enjoined to have Sabr (patience) at all times. It is man’s impatience which drives him to act impetuously, prematurely choosing what appears to be the easy way out, even though it falls under what has been forbidden. Impatience is a part of man’s nature, for Allaah Himself said: “Man was created hasty.” (21):37.
Consequently, the great reward in store for the righteous can only be attained if patience is exercised and the path of righteousness is followed especially in times of difficulty and temptation.

Forgive & Forget

I read this on a page on facebook that I follow; thought I’d share it here..425749_10151415404352652_799557698_nWe have been taught “to forgive, but never forget”, right?

Most of us lie when we say that we have forgiven the people for their mistakes and wrongdoings but then we continue to remind them of their mistake sometimes. Maybe in anger or maybe just to tease or make them feel hurt.

Is this a forgiveness we want for ourselves as well?

When we raise our hands in humility towards heavens and we beg for forgiveness, what do we ask for? What kind of forgiveness do we ask for?

We want a clean chit from Allah that we have been forgiven COMPLETELY. We want another chance. We want our huge and endless list of crimes to be erased. We want Allah to accept our repentance and allow us to start again. We don’t want to be reminded of it, or have it come back to haunt or to taunt us. We want our sins to be forgiven here and veiled on the day of Judgement!!

Subhan’Allah, the mercy of our Lord, the Most Merciful is so much unique that Allah Subhanahu Wa Taa’la after forgiving a repenting believer never reminds him of his wrong deeds, neither in this world nor in the hereafter!

Hence, If we want to be forgiven completely, we must learn to forgive others completely.

May Allah help us not to bear any grudges towards anyone, to treat one another properly and to forgive another completely.

Aameen!

Each one of us has the right to make a choice..

Although at times one is required to make compromises, for that special someone, for family, a child, for friends, and just some random people you come across in life out of the goodness of the heart.. and at times, these very people, although I’m sure they don’t intend to, begin taking things for granted.. anyway. Coming back to choices.. I’ve always believed that it’s all.. and everything that happens to us is somehow linked with the choices we make in life.

Often, when choosing a path that may have extreme obstacles, we do so with the thought that our choice will lead to a decision that would not harm us much and at the same time its impact would gain another person more benefit. That’s that angel in us just being selfless :p , knowingly exposing a vulnerable part of ourselves in front of others to simply have fun with.. exploit it at a certain level..

What actually leaves me bamboozled with a deeper intensity is when at times we make a decision that is wholly and solely for our own good, need or simply fulfills our desire, people, some of them who are in fact our very own and close to heart will not take a second to think or hesitate before labeling us.. as a self obsessed brat, slash, the most typically selfish being alive on the planet!

*Bhayee afsos houtah hai.. dil dukhta hai..*
is all I’d like to let em know..

Well, no offense intended to my dear(ies)! I love you! This isn’t to hurt u or make you feel bad if by any chance you read this. Just that today, I choose to be free of worries for no1 else but myself.

Today, I choose to be happy for no1 else but myself.

Voltaire says

I will tell you what I have learned from experience;

Only when you stop *needing* those things that desperately chase (love, status, money, career, people, etc) will you get them. Allah is raising you and teaching you to only depend on Him. At times, this is done by withholding. Just like if someone is dependent on a drug, the only way to break the dependency is to withhold the drug. After the dependency is cured, then you will have it or be sufficed in another way, insha Allah. The lesson is to learn to seek everything only through the Source.
