Regarding Path(s)

A'udhu billah hi minassyaitan nir rajeem,
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem,
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azeem

In an age where it seems that there are many people that teach but nothing is known,where words flow on endlessly but leads nowhere,where the price of everything is known but none of its value.And what better way to sum it all up:

"an age of guided missiles and misguided men"

the weariness that one might feel is quite understandable.

Excellent let us now begin.
In quality of mind it is depth that matters.
One who excels in traveling leaves no wheel track behind.

Come and take a journey that will lead to a world that begins where language ends.And which path should we take? Maybe this could be of some use :

Any path is only a path,and there is no affront(insult,disrespect),to oneself or to others,in leaving it if that is what your heart tells you.. Look at every path closely and deliberately.Try it as many times as you think necessary.Then ask yourself,and yourself alone,one question...Does this path have a heart?If it does,the path is good,if it does not it is of no use.

Just like the birds that take to sky, fishes in the sea, and worms buried deep in the belly of earth.We too must make our way,....eventually :) or risk of forever being trapped,unable to move.Mobility, that is the word that is being thrown around nowadays.hahaha

and let us remember now.

to remember a few words on the tongue is one thing, and to have those same words as "NAQSH" -engraved- on your heart in tranquility is another thing altogether.

to remember is to understand

A good Teacher remembers what it was to be a student,
A good Editor remembers being a writer,
A good Parent remembers what it was like to be a child,

A good Human remembers what it was like to be.

as the very familiar quote goes;
to be or not to be,that is the question! :)

-Peace be to you-
