You know it’s easy, so easy to get lost in everything other than ourselves. We fill our lives with so much distraction, find so much hesitation in just fulfilling our purposes or trying to. We become so truly consumed with everything, our minds do not switch off. There’s this thing to be done, that assignment to be done, this exam to prepare for, these people to get in touch with. The whole world is constantly spinning and spinning in our minds and we become sick. When was the last time you found, silence? Work, Social Media, Education - we strive and strive to be the best we can be in those sectors but we drain ourselves leading to minor or major burnouts. We do not stop to think about our own souls, the state of our hearts. True contentment, happiness stems from feeling at peace, feeling safe. And safety, can be found within. It’s not easy, trying to help yourself and that journey of the ‘self’ is never easy, or a smooth path. But once in a while, we really need to just stop. Focus on our states; spiritual, physical, emotional. Truly connect. Inner unrest leads to difficulty in relationships and more brokenness than you know. Difficulty in your daily life more than you know. But if you just listen. Just listen, and see what your soul is trying to say. See what your feelings are trying to say. Step out of this everythingness, this whole world of busy and being caught up with everything unnecessary, into nothingness. And in the darkness, in the empty space, you will find Him, you will find light. You will find, you. -K (Some of this caption was inspired by @ifacesoul.
By Allah, your interview with @themuslimmillennials
