I am so excited to share my very own book I created with my original photographs. It is very personal and about my wild spiritual journey. It is not meant to be bought or sold, but more like a keepsake for myself and for my children if they ever ask me what I believe. But I wanted to share with you all so that if you ever want to create your own book you can use this site and write down your own story one day.
See God in a limiting way, then your beliefs will limit you. See God in a vast way and your life opens up in unlimited ways.
From a real Muslim. Muslims don’t want to stop education…true ones look towards knowledge as a gift from God.
“Even if I had a gun, I would not shoot them. This is something I learned from Muhammad. From Jesus. From Gandhi. From Martin Luther King Jr…”
I wanted to share 7 of my favorite quotes that Muslims, and all other brothers and sisters of faith and awareness can relate to:
“God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.”
~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time
“all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”
~ Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time
“We do not know what things look like, as you say,” the beast said. “We know what things are like. It must be a very limiting thing, this seeing.”
“We want them to see their home planet,” Mrs. Whatsit said.
The Medium lost the delighted smile she had worn till then. “Oh, why must you make me look at unpleasant things when there are so many delightful ones to see?”
Again Mrs. Which’s voice reverberated through the cave. “There will no longer be so many pleasant things to look at if responsible people do not do something about the unpleasant ones.”
“She was silent; the great wings almost stopped moving; only a delicate stirring seemed to keep them aloft. “Listen, then,” Mrs. Whatsit said. The resonant voice rose and the words seemed to be all around them so that Meg felt that she could almost reach out and touch them:
“Sing unto the Lord a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that there is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift their voice; let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the Lord!”
“matter and energy are the same thing, that size is an illusion, and that time is a material substance.”
“There are forces working in the world as never before in the history of mankind for standardization, for the regimentation of us all, or what I like to call making muffins of us, muffins all like every other muffin in the muffin tin. This is the limited universe, the drying, dissipating universe, that we can help our children avoid by providing them with “explosive material capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly.”
“Who have our fighters been?” Calvin asked. “Oh, you must know them, dear,” Mrs Whatsit said. Mrs Who’s spectacles shone out at them triumphantly, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” “Jesus!” Charles Wallace said. “Why, of course, Jesus!” “Of course!” Mrs Whatsit said. “Go on, Charles, love. There were others. All your great artists. They’ve been lights for us to see by.” “Leonardo da Vinci?” Calvin suggested tentatively. “And Michelangelo?” “And Shakespeare,” Charles Wallace called out, “and Bach! And Pasteur and Madame Curie and Einstein!” Now Calvin’s voice rang with confidence. “And Schweitzer and Gandhi and Buddha and Beethoven and Rembrandt and St. Francis!”
All things of God start to shine brightly and stand out slightly, when you look with your heart and not just your eyes. The battle is real. The battle against darkness and light is within. That is the real “jihad” or battle we all face till the Last Days.
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.
Notice a pattern here?
I wanted to address something tonight that is painfully familiar to some. The idea of “likes” on social media such as facebook, twitter, wordpress, etc. What I have noticed is there is a strange anxiety at times inside myself even when I see people read something, but do not “like” it physically with some indication. It’s weird, and I know I am not alone.
This is something common with people who want to please others and help others in some way. We want to be validated that our ideas, thoughts, posts, and shares are enjoyed or liked by others. We want to know that our messages are getting across and being shared by others. People are so removed from connection to source that I can tell you right now, the love that you feel from God will far outweigh any feeling of self doubt or social anxiety you may suffer from the lack of connection from others. I always try to “like” others things I read to show appreciation to them, but I understand that some people are simply not like this and could care less how others may feel. Or they are too busy to hit the “like” button, for you. Sigh..
And while I am ok with this and have learned to accept this double sidedness of human nature, I know some may not be. Especially the younger generation just starting to write and express themselves. Even the older souls need to know their thoughts are being liked. What you feel right now with this feeling of “no likes” is the realization that you have entered a place emotionally others may not be at. You are sensitive to the lack of acknowledgement that you experience and this is a good thing coming from an indigo. 😉
Trust me. I see it on twitter and facebook. A funny, crude, or even rude post will get more likes than your honest and thought provoking one. As an empath, I see or feel it happen all the time and I make sure to at least give that person my “like” to show someone does read it and care about what they have to say. But deep inside, I KNOW why humans tend to look over the deeper nature into things versus the superficial ones.
This post is meant to be a healing one to whomever may read this. God and the Angels recording to sides, sees your actions to help, lift, awaken, express, acknowledge, heal, enlighten others while humans do not. There will be a few who tune into what you are trying to do, and I suggest to cherish those people because it means they are the rare few that have tapped into something you did too. That is the great gift of being alive, and why Adam was given a companion to talk to and communicate to. Connection is a precious gift-relish those few likes, and know God’s likes are the MOST important of all.
So thank you to the rare few who resonate with my words and “like” my posts. Much love back to you ❤
Does God the Creator create people differently? Not so sure…I think we all are made of the stars and have the same elements. It may be the idea different people unlock different parts of ourselves that makes one a hero vs. another a tyrant…maybe in the “junk” DNA?
We do know Jesus was created differently by God in the story of his birth.
I would like to think we all have potential to be service to positive change on earth, and many just choose to ignore the call.
To those who have chosen a path to be different and not just reach for this world’s rewards and do think about the hereafter, AND about leaving this world in a better state than what you were born into ….this is for you.
I salute you!
Martin Luther King jr. wasn’t perfect. He had some blemishes in his personal life, but when the Quran says that God will take account of the good and bad of what a person does, I am sure MLK’s good far outweighs the bad.
As a muslim, I consider him my Christian brother under the same God. He didn’t seek to persecute or divide people. He actually tried to unite was has been broken and corrupted by those in charge. He brought people of all color and faiths together of good people who were tired of the injustice in the world.
He taught the African Americans of America to rise above the white’s hate and misguided racism. And now today so many people are the better for it. He followed a calling from above to bring people together in love and peace, and this is the tenants of Islam.
He spoke about unequal wealth distribution towards others just as the Quran teaches that is so wrong of the people in charge and what Muhammad must publicly address.
And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
MLK also brought the idea of how inaction is a choice and God judges upon that, cause when something is happening to others and you remain neutral you are allowing something to happen and therefore not being a good person that God wants you to.
Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.
He also showed the willingness to be a submitter to God, otherwise known in Arabic as a “muslim” and was able to serve the higher good. He also understood that EVERYONE can make the choice to serve and submit to God and create peace and spread love around this world.
Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
Yes…as a muslim, there is no doubt in my mind that this man lies with the angels now. He was our Christian brother, fellow muslims. I hope we take a moment to remember his words and his service, to stop and think about the violence and injustice that is happening to so many others today, that this man died to bring awareness towards. Just as so many other human messengers of God have.
God will show me if I did these things enough in my lifetime and with the time given to me. Really this is all that matters, in the end.
