851) Life and its Ends !!

and then his life comes to an end ...
but is it an end or just another beginning?  ...
is life just one life, or different phases each one takes you to the other? ...
is it about when, or about how it will end?!
was he living in the first place? if so, how can he make sure that he is? ...
and then his life comes to an end ...

For me life is phases.here, in grave, the afterwards till we reach our final destination eljannah, isA.
Until then every end is just the begin of something else.better or worse, no one knows.
The end of every phase for me is not about how or when, it is of what i reached in this one n prepared for the next. All roads are similar n all require work.

The sign of life is how the heart is doing or what is called
حياة القلوب
The end hasen't come yet.

Life has an end la2enaha dar 3amal, the grave phase is a hibernation phase where the soul can see it's final destination and gaza2 so yes we are required to work untill the last day which we can't know when ( ra7ma men raben) and how it will end it extremely important because it's a sign of ou we lived and put level of integrity with God. في ٣ حاجات دايماً حاضرين في ذهني " نفس وما سواها فألهمها فجورها وتقواها قد أفلح من زكاها وقد خاب من دساها". وده معناه بالنسبة لي شغل مستمر مع نفسي وجهاد. الحاجة التانية هي الحديث " إنما الأعمال بالنيات وإنما لكل إمريء ما نوي. لأن البشر بطبيعتهم بيحكموا بظواهر الأمور إلا من رحم ربي لكن العبرة بالقلب وصفاؤه علشان كده الي حد كبير بيكون عندنا يقين وحسن ظن بالله انه هيكرمنا. الحاجة التالتةهي آية " عسي ان تكرهوا شيئا وهو خير لكم وعسي أن تحبوا شيءاً وهو شر لكم والله يعلم وأنتم لا تعلمون" . ونحط تحت لا تعلمون دي مليون خط أحمر علشان عقلنا مش بيستوعب حاجات كتير .. فإذا قلنا إن شخص قلبه نظيف وبيجتهد وضل الطريق لسبب او لآخر وربنا حب يقفل طريق علشان يصحح مساره للأفضل تبقي دي مش نهاية الدنيا لأن لسه الأجل لم يحن!! تبقي بداية مرحلة جديدة والزاد في الرحلة دي حسن الظن بالله والعمل الدائم لنيل رضاه حتي لو بأبسط الأشياء..أحب الأعمال أدومهاوإن قل

How a person is living or how to make sure he is, is all about him and his personal vision, perception , values, etc it's very hard to judge someone else 's life with your own belief system.. If you want to help anyone you have to help them discover their own values, fulfilling their own dreams and live their own life..mafeeeesh rules hena 7'ales..life is an individual journey and private experience

Mohaly said...

Life is a one way ticket.

Maryam said...

no ya Doctor. everyone has the choice to go one station or more back, change the direction or even step out of this train and into another one :-)
depends on how you see the journey and destination.

Sohad Tawakol said...

Life is an amazing journey during which we discover ourselves, skills, talents and strengthen our relationship with God. We are here for a purpose, keep your line of sight :)))

We don't receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one an take for us or spare us!

Lubna said...

Good morning dear members of my Haven.....

Again Mohaly seems to raise another very interesting n recurring question in one's mind: what's all about? This life, and how can anyone be sure that his version of the answer is the most he can attain during his journey?

I have thought for along time about such questions. Sometimes when im down, other times when im most energetic....and I have found out that it is not about answering those question in general..It is about apply our answer each n every moment we are granted life in...It is more about making most of the right moment....cause it is actually all we have. Each moment has its own uniqueness. I have to keep myself open mentally and spiritually to be able to receive some of the wisdom Sohad is talking about. For all my life, I have bn breaking one "cliche", "stereotype" after another...seeking more knowledge about myself n the true meaning of things only to discover that I needed to break my own mind patterns more bravely. I do that but with certain innate caution cause part of me is worried about my inner identity. Lately, Im focusing on examining my thoughts: are they related to a Value, if not? then it is open to change ....
The more we are simple, flexible, and open to Life...the more we experience new horizons, themes, meanings.....(sky is the limit)

Mohaly, Life is a transitional journey in which we get to choose what to do with it, who to be , who to know n love.....( your words more than mine). At certain moments, life may seem so hectic , or useless but it is not. There is always tomorrow. It is renewed chanllenge to make the best of our time on earth. Injustice hurts like hell. Feeling that some people are in control of our freedom .....However, we can beat that we constant working on our goals ...spreading knowledge n light so each one of the new generation like noor n leena will have like ten or twenty more like us as their network and so forth....so they will be stronger than we are ....they will have what we didn't.....this is the big picture....you taught me that.(حرب أعصاب ... و الأثبت هو اللى هايكسب
ركز فى شغلك .. طور فى نفسك .. ساعد فى بناء بلدك) (theoratically n practicall). You may need time to process n here comes the role of someone like me n our dear friends to support you n remind you....that ideas don't die...real work of good people has impact on the long run.....

Nero once posted a poem I love so much and I revisit when i feel truly tired of all the hussel. Here it is:
To Love Life:
The Thing Is
to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it
and everything you've held dear
crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,
your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
thickening the air, heavy as water
more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you like your own flesh
only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, How can a body withstand this?
Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again."

- Ellen Bass-

Well said ya Lobna

Maryam said...

beautiful ya Lubna.

Then you hold life like a face
between your palms, a plain face,
no charming smile, no violet eyes,
and you say, yes, I will take you
I will love you, again."

is simply a very good description of life at its ugliest, where one has to just accept it and move on.

ya Doctor, i know you asked for time and you have every right to have it for as long as you need. all i am telling you, if you dont find the way to come back, our hands are ready to support.

Yea we are here to talk , communicate as much as we can.....

I can't count how many times I told Mohamed, we are blessed that he has created this space for us to interact. Thank you and Thank you Maryam n Sohad for sharing such thoughts and insights....

Sohad Tawakol said...

Maryam said...

i am grateful for being here too, dear. keep on telling him, maybe he won't think to close it again :-)
actually, we are blessed to have the ability to communicate aslan! some people don't talk or accept others ideas. their closed minds isolate them from anyone.

glad to have you rise and shine here. missed your comments.
