People everywhere choose the more rigid interpretations of everything, they feel compelled to align themselves to whatever may create and send negative vibes/energies to the world, but I choose tenderness over harshness, being kind over being right, beauty over ugliness and will do that to the very best of my abilities. Why not do our best to adhere ourselves to what only brings love, beauty, kindness, positivity, compassion, humanity and the other great virtues?
Why not even do every act in your life with mindfulness, and instill goodness in the most tiny acts that you do in your life?! The simplest one when you begin your day like opening the window, have your ever felt in the following way, this way:
The opening of the windows wide open is like a declaration, a little prayer sent to the lord, and the universe at the beginning of the day ‘Morning world, my lord, air/wind/sun/birds/etc, every other creature, am ready to receive your blessing, please just send great things my way and I’ll do the same!’ and in the night when you close the window, you end the day saying ‘Thank you the day was great, time to rest, reflect, to feel blessed/gratitude, and so on!’
I listen to a lot of folks on meditation and mindfulness, and I read also about such stuff , and also on religion. We’re always in a state of sending and receiving energy, so when doing something one needs to pay attention what are they transmitting, because what you send is what you will receive.
In Islam the prophet Mohammed -PUBH- asks us to be optimist and hope for the good , and then we’ll receive it. So on the other hand if one is pessimist, and are anticipating bad things, they will also receive it too! If it all about what our thoughts, so why not only have great, optimist, loving and kind thoughts?
He even had a prayer when he witnesses the new moon of each month, asking to receive its blessing.
“O Allah, let this moon (month) pass over us with blessings, Iman, safety, and in the belief of Islam. Grant us the ability to act on the actions that You love and Pleases You. (O moon) My Lord and Your Lord is Allah”.
So you see you can secretly pray that for each encounter in your life, and for all the creatures you meet along your way, you ask the lord just to see their goodness, they act in goodness/blessings and good faith towards you, and to only receive their blessings, amen.
