Blossoming in the Garden of Life (Part 2)

~ Make the Best of Thy Self ~

 

My Life Matters
Life has meaning, make your life meaningful; life has purpose, make your life purposeful. No person is insignificant and no good deed is too small. Every little bit counts; the desert is vast, but it is constituted of tiny grains of sand. “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” [Mother Theresa]
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) encouraged human beings to do such deeds, the benefits of which would outlive them; a sentiment later expressed by the German philosopher and mathematician, Oswald Spengler, who said: “this is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us; to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves; to act in such a way that some part of us lives on.”

Passionately Pursue your Dream
To be truly motivated, one must make personal commitments and the best form of commitment is through love. To be successful, you must love what you do. When you love, the path before you becomes illuminated. Loving what you do gives you vision, enlivens the imagination; and an enlivened imagination makes you more creative and enhances your potential to be pro-active and productive. Love is the great motivator. Life is really fulfilling when you truly enjoy what you do. In the words pf Jalaluddin Rumi, “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”
Novelist, Mary Cholomondeley said; “Every day I live I am more convinced that the waste of life lies in the love we have not given and the powers we have not used.” If you love what you do and do what you love; you'll have much more fun, touch more lives, make more of a difference and feel a greater sense of fulfillment in your life.

Live Life to the Full … Actualize!
Life really happens at the level of action, not so much at the level of thought, neither at the level of circumstance nor of emotion. Ideas, beliefs, missions and visions provide but the platform for building the stage of life. You've got to put your own act together. Be the architect of your life; don't wait for things to happen, make things happen. “O Allah! Let us not be of those content to wait and see what will happen, but grant us the determination to make the right things happen.” [prayer of Rumi]

Some people live a lifetime in 20 years while others survive 80 years and have not learnt to live as yet. “Live life to the full, because what matters most is not the length, but the depth of life.” [writer, Ralph Waldo Emmerson] Live! Don't just survive. Do not to reach the end of your life merely having lived the length of it; ensure that you have lived the depth of life as well.

Make a difference in your life, you'll surely make a difference to the world and remember the prayer of the Prophet (pbuh) “O Allah, make life a means for every dimension of increased goodness.”
