Life these days is full of stress, hardship, and pain. As a result of this we find ourselves running everywhere searching desperately for solutions yet finding that we still have an emptiness.
I want to talk about something you’ve probably heard a million times,”our happiness, peace, and joy is within”. I know what your thinking, “yeah, yeah if only it were that simple”. Well, IT IS!
The very first and guaranteed way you’ll come to this realization is to ,drum roll please, RELAX! Yes that’s the first step to inner peace, true happiness, and joy.
We are full of worry, stress, and a seemingly desperate attempt to control the outcome of our very lives. Be it our careers, marriage, or parenting. The list goes on and on.
We only need surrender our control and let Allah’s plan reveal itself. Ironically, while we are busy making our plans, which usually don’t workout and we spent so much time and energy striving for, Allah’s plan prevails anyway. Then we get even more distressed because we are not in harmony with Allah’s plan so things don’t make sense to us. As a result we lose more peace, happiness, and joy.
So in order to end this vicious perpetuation of pain and suffering, we need to relax and surrender to Allah’s magnificent plan. The best plan for you and the whole Universe!
When we relax and get centered (the opposite of being tense and scattered) we re-align ourselves with the Divine. In this relaxed surrendered state you are now open to receive from Divine inspiration. You’ll know, because you are calm and centered with a laser like focus, just what to ask for from Allah regarding anything in your life. Then sit back and watch as Allah’s plan unfolds right in your very life.
Know with full faith and confidence that Allah knows best and be receptive for what Allah manifests in your life. You heart will always tell you what you need as it is in allignment with Allah’s plan.
So get relaxed, get centered, and be open to recieve. No more feeling worried, stressed, or unfulfilled. Life is rich and beautiful because it is Divine manifestation. We just need to relax long enough to witness it.
