Peace be upon you, beautiful human being!
Resistance is a very strong force.
Resistance is what stops you from waking up early in the morning.
Resistance is what sticks you to your chair when you know you should be working out.
Resistance is what holds you back from speaking up for what’s right.
Resistance is gravity. It holds you down…stuck to the ground.
How do you overcome gravity?
Choose the path of least resistance.
The force pushing you up has to be stronger than the force holding you down.
That force is activated when you fully trust in The Supreme Source of all that is – Allah.
If logic tells you that you can’t float, that you’ll never fly…throw logic out the window! They say if you have enough faith, you can walk on water.
Empty yourself, like a cup. Become lighter than the air, as light as a feather.
But, if you’re just not ready for that yet, here’s another option:
One of my students came up with the idea of a buoyancy balloon. If they want to float but don’t know how, they can use a balloon filled with air to help them.
They can piggyback off of the “lightweight” balloon and it will help push them up. It will help them defy the resistance, defy gravity.
Friends are similar. If you have a friend that’s like an anchor, heavy with hatred, grudges, negativity etc., you holding on to them will pull you down…farther away from your destiny.
However, if your friend is one who is positive, and at peace through submission to The Divine, they will be your life jacket in the uncertain sea of life. They will push you up, where you belong!
Be careful who your friends are…life jackets or anchors?
With immense love x gratitude,
