What would you do if you knew love, what would you do if you lived love, what would you do if you loved the whole worl

Love is the very substance that this world is made of, is out there and in us, is the essence of the matter that we feel as solid and is the essence of our being, our soul.

But Love can take Action thru us, the humans and that implies that we know Love with our heart, we feel it and we let it "work" thru us.

We cannot sit on the sofa and blog about Love. This is not action.

Love is not out there and is going to come to save us; actually even the Love out there can save us if we only NOTICE it... it's in the simple things, in the nature, in the human relationships and so on

What did Love do, for example, when Mother Teresa allowed it to transform her and to not be afraid or reason anymore? In the middle of hunger, thirst, fear dirt, pain, so much pain, there she was, doing her work.

The similar examples are everywhere actually, there is an Indian guy that just finished his studying to be a chef, he could have a wonderful career as a chef in some opulent hotel but he decided to feed the hungry on the streets in his city in India, so he cooks, he feeds them and he hugs them and bathes them.
This is what Love is doing, thru him, he allows it to, and guess what: I don't think he needs Prozac when he gets home to kill the pain he sees around every day... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RsRFklZ2-8 Notice in the video: what was his first question: "what is the purpose of my soul?"

You might say: this doesn't even matter in the ocean of a billion of people suffering around there. No, it matters, it matters for Narayanan (that is his name) and for his pursuit of happiness and it matters for God, and it matters for those people he is helping very much!

Friends with conditions......

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we're so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being Love is the supreme creative act...

If the whole world wants to go left and you feel like going right, go right. You don’t have to follow. You don’t have to make a big deal about which way you’re going. Just go. It’s very easy.... It is YOU that matters!

A small trouble is like a pebble. Hold it too close to your eye, and it puts everything out of focus. Hold it at proper viewing distance, and it can be examined and classified. Throw it at your feet, and it can be seen in its true setting, just one tinier bump on the pathway to eternity...this is so true.

I am a Muslim; Quran is my guide – THE GREAT READING! I believe the Quran contains the whole truth. This doesn't mean I do. I am merely the student. I am an active reader, and will continue to do so, and if by reading other spirituals books make me less Muslim to you so be it. There are many ways to truth.

“By reading other books, it helps me see the Quran better, kind of like stimulus to higher thought.”

“Yes some said Quran is enough, but it doesn’t tell me to stop reading other texts. It's a complete system in itself and all other bits of information must be fit in accordingly.”

“Merely having the text or claiming to believe in it isn’t having the truth. The truth is a journey, a posture. When you adopt that posture, you evolve. All paths have some measure of truth.
Separating untruths from the truth is a lifelong jihad - many people read the Quran and never accept it, just because they have truth in front of them doesn't automatically make everything better...”

“We are all born with fitrah Allah; the rest is up to us to stay on that, and to humble ourselves to God alone. “

“What kind of God ordains crucifixion for treason?”The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to kill them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides." (Qur'an 5:33)...

“The meaning is that those aspects of your selfhood that wage war against your innate (Prophetic) nature -- when the selfhood is at war with itself -- these aspects will perish...”

My brother told me that – “‘arrogance’ is a characteristic influence by "me first", a self-cantered sort of mentality. Some are arrogant because they have a distorted image of reality which they believe is the absolute truth and they are not willing to accept any sort of reasoning against it because of their inability to come to terms with their weakness/faults.

People of humble nature become more humble and People arrogant by nature become more arrogant in their speech and manners after reading Quran. They are mostly those who believe that simply reading or reciting Quranic verses (without the need to understand it and reflect it in their conduct) is enough to qualify them to be included among the ranks of the righteous and hence this illusion of being ‘the righteous’ further enhance their already arrogant nature.”

And I think this is true.

Some people spend their entire lives reading but never get beyond reading the words on the page, they don't understand that the words are merely stepping stones placed across a fast-flowing river, and the reason they're there is so that we can reach the farther shore, it's the other side that matters.

Whatever you do take one more step out of your comfort zone.

I am NOT worry when I’m not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition. And don't let recognition be our motivator! Do our best always, either way! But one recognition I needed none. I stay committed in my decisions, but am staying flexible in my approach." I believe when we improve ourselves we can also serve as an inspiration to help others improve also...

You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. If we look at the world with a love of life, the world will reveal its beauty to us. As human beings, our greatness lays not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves.

One person cannot change the world, but one person can spread the message and let many know. Let's come together and create the change. We cannot fight for peace; we can only set our differences aside. Come together and unite, spread the love. We need to stand up for ourselves but not to fight, because divided we fall, but together we stand.

O ye who believe! Guard your own souls: If ye follow (right) guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who stray. the goal of you all is to Allah: it is He that will show you the truth of all that ye do. (5:105)

Judging or observation?

It is not for you to judge the journey of another's Soul. It is for you to decide who you are, not who another has been, or has failed to be.

I like seeing people act with integrity and unselfishly, not focused on greed at the expense of others. Nobody gets away with anything. Sometimes people think they're being slick by maligning or slandering another, for example, and they think they're getting away with something, but God sees everything.

I too sometimes fall into this trap. I'm no better or worse than anyone. I strive for righteousness and do my best. I'm quick to correct my faults if I notice any and would never intentionally wrong another.

Often we make "observations" not necessarily judgments. A person playing with fire increases their chances of being burned its inevitable, not a judgment just an observation.

For every action there is an equal opposite reaction, it is just the nature of things. Sowing bad seeds, yields a bad unproductive harvest...under nourished. Sowing good seeds upon good fertile ground yields an abundant harvest. Here again, just an observation.

Now for the individuals that choose to sow bad seeds...when they could have spent that very same time sowing good seeds...again their harvest will be their own. We all will reap what we have sown. Not a judgment, just an observation. That’s my humble opinion.

Passing judgment on another's soul's journey is an exercise in futility anyway. Their journey is THEIR reality, not yours, and unless you can walk in their shoes, you can't know what has brought them to where they now are.

We are innately more alike as mortal beings then we are different. When one is truly honest with their own heart, let it be that a mortal being is not perfect. The judgment is not for us to call.

Everyone has one's own reason for being, and is responsible for--not you.

Don't take life so seriously... let go and be silly often! The only difference between try and triumph is a little umph.


Any large group of people -- the citizens of a city, a country, the citizens of the world -- could easily get together to stop war and do things differently. So the "big guys" -- and the societies that we live in and the "big guys" profit from -- do everything they can to divide us from one another. ("Divide and conquer...") There are so many people we're not "supposed to" get to know!

-- What is racism but a really great way to keep individual "whites" and "people of color" from knowing each other, caring about each other, and joining together for a society of respect for all?

-- What is sexism but an ingenious way to divide every household from within -- the womenfolk’s and the men folks believing, much of the time, that we can never really understand and trust each other?

-- What is classism but a way to make sure people in "better" classes don't get to hear, respect, and use the sensible ideas of people "below" them -- and to make sure the "lower" people believe they have no useful ideas?

The divisive society cannot afford for you and me to compare notes on what it does to our lives. So, a basic, effective way to move toward peace is

-- To make friends with people who are different from us, and

-- To deepen our connection and trust with the people we already know

No more wrecking the Earth (especially not for profit). That humanity can and will find marvelously respectful ways to live as an equal partner among all the other creatures, the plant world, the interlocking life systems, and the air we breathe.

No more wasting of human gifts and genius. Each day, after being able to earn at least basic sustenance, everyone on Earth will have time and energy left over to think about, contribute to, and celebrate the wonderfulness of life.

Peace -> is us getting to work together to have things be the way we want them. Peace is all of us getting to enjoy our own and each other's unique genius and gifts :)

PEACE need to be educate...

PEACE need to be educate...

Unfortunately the majority of the past generations didn`t realize the importance of Peace & that`s what I see here & in many places in the world that the new generations have no clue about Peace :(

PEACE has to be Educated alongside the Human Rights to our children , I think, PEACE IS A MATTER OF EDUCATION & THE KNOWLEDGE OF EACH OTHERS .

Please teach each of our children about PEACE & encourage them to know the other side First before Judging. Love all & respect all & never force your believes on any one, my dad always told me your attitude defines your faith & believes.

My message is Peace, is beyond human non sense & seeing the other who are different than me as an exciting cultural exploration is beyond human stupidity.

Just imagine all of the infinite possibilities which you are! Not what you could do, but who you really are! So, what can you imagine you can do? Don’t think about the logistics, just use your Heart and create an image in your mind of what you could do if you had unlimited power & resources.

The car won't move if you are always neutral. The car won't move if you are always clutching. The car moves best when fuelled by love, driven with awareness and steered peacefully by purpose.
