Ways to Explore Ourselves, Our Lifestyle and the Goals of Life

Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Choicest Blessings and Peace be Upon him)

MAN-ARAFA-NAFSAHU-FAQAD-ARA
He who knows himself, knows his lord

“Ma’n Arafah Naf’sah Fa’qad Ara’fah Rabb’ah”

Translation: He Who Knows Himself, Knows His Lord.

A cure for disease / a solution for a problem can be found only if disease or the problem is well understood first. Similarly we can beat the fear to be the winner only when we know who we are, what our fear is and how to overcome that. Knowing our own selves is the core of wisdom and knowledge because those who can concentrate their own selves, purpose of life and goals; they can explore the life and its purposes in a better way. Animals, Birds, plants and even each and every species face the universal scenario of taking birth and later on reaching to the end point but what is the difference between humans and all other creations? This question can be answered in the right way only if we know our selves.

We just need to concentrate and start thinking and we’ll get the ways. A great Philosopher “Maulana Jalal – ud – din Rumi” also known as “Rumi” says:

“As you start to walk on the way,
the way appears”

We can explore ourselves only if we seriously wish to do so. This will help us to know what we need to do to achieve the goals of success. We can know our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats if we know what we are, how much we can move in which direction etc.

Knowing one’s own self should NEVER EVER be considered as wastage of time or being idle rather it is said as one of the great achievements. But for this, you need to spend time with your own self. Try to know what are you choices, what are the things you are good at and which things you need to improve yet.

Sometimes you’ll need to look yourself from the eye of others and this will be the great way to know what are the issues / habits or elements in our personality which might create negative / bad impression of us in the eyes of others. This is just like looking in the mirror. We see ourselves from other’s perspective and let us know what others want to change in us. The answer would be just the same which we want to change in others. We just need to start thinking about us and well will keep on getting answers of all the questions. All we need to do is just to Try it!

 

“The Universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself, everything that you want, you already are.”

Beat The Fear To Be The Winner

Everyone sees life and its issues with a different and a bit personal perspective hence the views and opinions about life and related matters differ a lot. “Fear” is one of the dark side of life and everyone has their own reasons and types of fear. There are multiple dimensions and/or types of fear including failure in any/every walk of life including fear of failure in studies, fear of failure in getting job, fear of the mountains of expenses happening in routine life, bankruptcy fear, any fear related with disease i.e. fear of having any health issue and last but not the least fear of failure in relationships.

Because the types of fear vary from person to person and everyone has his/her own reasons and situations thus the causes, outcomes and remedies to fight with fear are also unique in every case. There are a number of ways to explore ourselves, our lifestyle and the goals of life. Similarly we can explore fear and its reasons by deep concentration and once we find all its details we’ll be able to know the reasons and how to fight with each of the reasons.

It is possible to nip the fear in the bud with a hope and courage of success in difficult times. Yes, it is said that:

The Biggest DISEASE is HOPELESSNESS
and
the Biggest MEDICINE is SELF Confidence
