  • Surat zariat
  • Many people live their lives without ever reflecting on life itself or its meaning for them. Their lives may be full of activities. They may marry, have children, run a business, or become scientists or musicians, without ever obtaining any degree of understanding of why they do these things. Their lives have no overall purpose to give meaning to separate events, and they may have no clear idea of their own nature or identity, of who they really are. 1: helping a person to load his animal putting some water in your neighbor's bucket 2: Whoever finds himself at the nightfall tired of his work, God will forgive his sins.
  • 1: In order for soul to lift us into awareness and inspiration, it's got to have fuel. 2: Happiness is like gasoline in an airplane. Take it away and nothing gets off the ground. 3: Some of the spiritual gurus advise people to live only in the present. If we would just live in the "now" and not think about the future, they say, life would be bliss. But I've found that doesn't really work. People think lots about the future and they should. On the other hand, if you only think about the future, you're never going to enjoy what's right under your nose.
