Peace be upon you, beaYOUtiful, glittery human being! I am SO proud of you for being here 🙂 and I am so, so grateful. *hugs*
This is a bedtime tip for when you feel like life is spiraling out of your control. It works every. Single. Time.
When you don’t get what you want, don’t tense up. Instead, this time, relax. Just…
Take 3 deep breaths.
Then, think: God Wants me to win! So of course, He’s Got something way better in store for me. No one else wants me to succeed as much as He Does. That’s why He Created me! To explore my infinite potential!
I can’t see it now, but He Has Had my winning life planned out since the beginning of time.
He Always Has My Best Interests at heart. He Loves me more than 70 times my own Mama’s love 🙂 And Mamas love a whole lot, people!
Think: What I want deep down at my sweet shiny core IS what Allah Wants for me, too!
I am becoming like an Olympic swimmer floating in the water … relaxing, surrendering to The Greater Purpose.
I am giving up control. When was I ever able to control anything, anyway?
I am becoming like a water bottle, kneeling in total submission on the ground …emptying myself of my self and making room for the blessing of Allah. The Most Generous Lord. The One Who Shows His Love By Giving.
Whenever I try to resist His Will for me to win, my chest tightens up and it’s as if I can’t even breathe.
I am as feathery light as a bird…who doesn’t hold anything inside, so I can fly to the highest sky!
When things aren’t going the way I want, when everything is out of my control, I’m going to do life differently now…
I am letting go.
I am letting God.
What happens next?!
Literally. TRUE PEACE.
Heaven on earth.
Just like when you surrender to the water, even though every ounce of you wants to resist (it seems only logical to survive).
God Shows you, time and time again, to trust Him. Even if it defies logic.
The more you resist, the longer you suffer.
God Doesn’t Want you to suffer. So just…
And let Him Drive. Become a vessel for His Love. Empty you of you.
Fill yourself with Him.
Become like a river, flowing freely with His Divine Command.
I swear on my existence, it is all you have ever been looking for. THIS is the secret to world peace. This is what our hearts crave.
Submission IS The Theory of Everything.
And guess what the word Islam literally means?
Attaining peace through loving submission to The Creator, Cherisher and Sustainer of all the worlds.
It is the simplest, most self-evident truth there is. And yet, as Paolo Coelho put it:
“It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary; only wise men are able to understand them.”
Everything in existence was designed by God, our Creator, to bear witness to His Oneness.
“I created the jinn and humans for nothing else but that they may serve Me…”Quran 51:56
Therefore, the purpose of creation is to submit to Allah, to our One God, and let Life flow through us, unobstructed.
Woah. That’s a lot, isn’t it?! Take the time to think about these simple truths. Right here is the key to life itself. Right here is the answer to world peace.
Islam. Not just a faith, not just a way of life.
Islam. The state of our universe at rest. The only way to float on the turbulent ocean of life is to surrender, even when every cell in your body is screaming that it doesn’t make sense.
It’s the only way to survive. And once you master survival, you unlock the portal to thrive.
No matter what is going on in the world, your peace radiates from your heart and affects the electromagnetic field of the earth itself!
And that is how being the change leads to world peace…
Through loving surrender to The One Who Was Always In Control.
With immense love x gratitude,
Boom. *mic drop
