Spiritualism has been metaphorically considered to be a form of
intoxication throughout history. As with any metaphor, this
overshadows a large portion of what true spirituality actually entails.
Many famous poets have referenced wine and drunkenness to express
how one feels when in a spiritual state. Shouldn’t one feel beside
oneself when in a state of spiritual wonder? Shouldn’t one feel
intoxicated when they connect to the divine?
I remember volunteering for a group of students visiting the Shrine of
Imam Musa bin Rida (a). The students traveled from the United
Kingdom all the way to the Middle East in order to visit this shrine.
They were typical young English Muslims, using weird British slang
(which took some time to get used to). Since they did not fit into the
“ultra-religious/spiritual” box, I wondered what effect visiting the
shrine would have on them.
The students put their head ... Read more »

The hardest thing about being in a relationship is probably trying to decide if you should end
it. The second hardest? Whether you should give it another chance -- especially if you've
already broken up. There comes a time in most everyone's relationship when you think about
throwing in the towel. And what if you do, but then your significant other wants you back?
What if he promises to change? What if he swears up and down, back and forth, that that thing
that tore you apart will never, ever happen again? Do you believe him? Do you risk getting your
heart broken all over again?
If you're thinking about breathing new life into a dead relationship , here are seven things you
should consider first.
What happened to break you up? People break up for all kinds of reasons -- everything from an
affair to physical or emotional abuse to just not feeling like you have anything in common
anymore. There are no right and ... Read more »

When a person is cocky they are just usually over compensating in faking their confidence. There are a variety of reasons for people to be too cocky, and this usually is done out of the fear of not actually being good enough. Searching for a humble amount of confidence is very key in a person living out there everyday life. If you don't allow for yourself to be humbled, then chances are, life will find a way to humble you. Instead of worrying about what others perceive of you, worry about what you perceive of yourself. Worry about if you are doing the things that are in your heart to really do. We cannot all be where we want to be in every moment of our lives. But if we stay real, stay humble, and stay faithful, life and its circumstances will never be able to deter us from reaching our goals.

Real men never stop trying to show a girl how much she means to him, even after he's got her.

In love, we must make a conservative effort to show the person that we claim we love that we actually love them. Love is way more than telling someone "I love you" and is actually one of the hardest jobs to maintain. Although love may get difficult to keep up with at times, when a person is really in love, it isn't hard for them to show and express the way they may feel at any given time. To love like the world is ending one must give their love everything that is inside of them taking in the fact that love may not always be seen arriving but is easily spotted when it is leaving. In other words, love like today is the last day that you will ever be able to give your love to whomever it is you care for, because you never know if or when the opportunity to do so will ever pass.

Find someone worth your tears, worth your laughter, worth your heart and that loves you as much as you love them.

There isnt often much you can blame on falling in love besides love itself. Falling in love is a beautiful thing, because when you fall in love everything seems much clearer. The sky seems a tad bit bluer, the sun will seem a tad bit brighter, love songs will be so much better understood, and the feelings traveling from the soles of your feet to the top of your head will make you feel like a million bucks. When you fall in love be sure to cherish it, especially when it is right. Falling in love isnt something that should be taken for granted. Love is sometimes a lot easier to fall into than it is to actually maintain a relationship itself, but when love is right, anything else that follows after it is usually right as well. Never blame gravity for falling in love, blame your heart instead.

Move on. It is just a chapter in the past, but don't close the book- just turn the page.

We all have a bright future, no matter how dark our past is. There are things that were out of control and things that were totally in our control that we totally mishandled in the past. Every one of us knows deep down that if we had just made a few better choices in our pasts, we may be somewhere totally different in our lives than we are right now. You can never let your past convince you that your future shouldnt be bright, instead you must use your past to help convince yourself that your future should be bright, and not only should it be bright, but it should also help to illuminate your new path as well. Use what you have been through to make your life better, never let the person that you used to be in your past, take away from who you can be in the future.

In the end, you'll realize you only have a few true friends. But that's better than having many fake ones.

When it comes to keeping a good friend around, we have to be willing to accept that not every friend that we encounter is a good one. There will always be situations that arise in life, and especially in our relationships that will help to show us who our real friends are, and who our real friends are not. When someone shows you who they really are, be sure to believe them the first time. If you put this principle into place, for the most part you will save yourself a lot of heartache and pain. At the end of the day, remember that real friends do not influence you to do things that are not a part of your character and that will cause nothing but destruction and turmoil in your life. Real friends will help build you, and will only try to influence you to do what is best for you.

Don't let life change your goals, because achieving your goals can change your life. You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Life isn't about your age. Life is about what you are willing to do right now to make this world a better place. Just because you may be older doesn't mean that you can't leave a great mark on this Earth by the time that you are gone from it. There is literally nothing that you can't do on this Earth if you really, wholeheartedly tried in every way to make whatever dreams you have inside come true. All that a person has to be willing to do at any age is commit to their dreams in such a dedicated way that it all starts to really make sense. So many people leave this Earth before they really make any type of great statement in it, dont be one of these people. Let the world know who you are, what you stand for, and why they can still be inspired by your story!

Those who continually praise their selves and their own accomplishments are actually those who lose out the most in life, while those who are willing to stand for causes and live for others, never lose their lives. Being humble isn't only a desired trait for any one of us to have, it is one of the biggest life lessons that we must not only understand, but also put into place every day in our lives. Being humble allows for a person to gain a supreme amount of understanding, which translates into their lives, giving them an abundant amount of positive energy to grow from. Be a true winner as every day of your life passes. Never let go of your standards, and continually set the bar higher for yourself, so that you may positively affect the greatest amount of people around you, both directly and indirectly.

To continue to achieve in life, a person has to be willing to set goals for their lives. Without any sense of direction a person will just blow in the wind, falling and following every single thing that may cross their paths. Instead of being a victim to the plethora of choices that must be made in each day, a person has to be willing to stick to making decisions that represent who they are, and where they are trying to go in life. Just as surely as a person should have goals, a person should also have drive as well. Without drive and ambition to get you past your obstacles, a person will often lose sight of the goals they may have had in mind in the first place. Hold tight your dreams, and never stop believing that one day, somehow, they will be a reality, keep pulling and keep pushing!

If we are going to make the changes that we want to see made on this Earth by the time that we are gone from it, we have to be willing to persevere and continuing our fight. No matter what disparities or adversity comes our way, we must continue to fight. We must not only keep walking forward, but we must also be willing to fight the people off of us that are doing nothing but weighing our backs down while we walk. We have to let the spiteful words of our haters go in one ear, and out of the other. We have to guard our hearts and protect their sanctity, while simultaneously protecting our integrity. We have to be willing to stand up straight despite the criticism, despite the threats on our life, and fight for the cause that our heart beats for. Work hard for the freedom that you want this world to see.

When we love someone it isn't always easy to see, but we have to be willing to fight hard for it. Love is something that many people are so cynical about, because they often don't understand the importance of being as willful as you can in a relationship. Love is something that you fight for, something that you act courageously for, and something that you will risk it all for. Without love, and without all of its risks, life will certainly be dull. Love is given to us to help deal with the hardships of life, and a real love will help to pick you up when you fall. In this same sense, we have to love others when they are falling, and we have to love others in our lives even when it seems as though they may not deserve it. Keep loving, always, keep fighting for love.

Do you ever feel like you know you are doing things that aren't what you are supposed to be doing, yet continue to act daily in the repeat these same habits? It is never too late to change, and it is never too late to get out of your own way so that you dont continue to block the light. There is nothing in our way to our destinies except if we get in our own way. Getting out of your own way may mean that you take an active role in changing your everyday habits. Getting out of your own way may mean that you get away from the people in life that are doing nothing to bring you up, but only take your valuable time away to bring you down. Quit getting in your own way, and start making the right decisions each day in order not to.

Realizing that there are huge differences between giving up and moving on is a huge part of becoming mature in life. A person with a considerable amount of wisdom is a person that knows when it is time to let something or someone go out of their lives. Not every one knows every single answer to every problem, and yes sometimes people make mistakes by leaving a situation to early, or staying in a bad situation for too long, but those who just seem to know the right time for a need in the change of scenery, are those who are willing to listen to their heart. It is important to think about our decisions in life and to weigh them against our past experiences and so forth, but there are times when we just have to be willing to listen to what is being said in the deepest part of our heart.

One reason that we should always be careful who we love is because of the fact that everyone that we give a part of ourselves too is a person that we ultimately take a part of and fill our own spirit with as well. Whether or not the relationship we have with the people that we truly love is able to work out or not, the people that we give our love too will always be a part of us. Sometimes falling in love happens way too fast and we have no control over the feelings that we may incur for a person way before we are able to clearly think things out. Love, when done right, is one of the grandest gifts that a person can share with another person. Yet when love fails, it can bring out the worst in emotions and the worst in pain that a person may ever endure. So be sure to guard your heart until it tells you that the time is right to let go, and when it does, love hard!
