If you can see the difference between the two pics then yes, you should read my other blogs to check your own understanding of READing my MIND.
You will not regret the time spent on READing MY MIND.
as EYE see
If I want to sow a rose plant (why rose, will be known to you later), I will use its seeds, put them into the soil, water the soil and wait, until a bud is sprouted out of it. Once the flower is out of the bud, it starts spreading its fragrance around and then with the passage of time, it will die down, after completing its life cycle.
Now if I want to save its fragrance for later use, I will separate it from the plant, and squeeze its juice into a bottle and throw away the mutilated petals into the garbage. The fragrance is saved in the bottle, and can be used as and when needed.
When a baby is conceived inside the womb, first of all his body starts taking the shape, once the body is complete, then his soul gets the spirit and then after completing his gestation period, he is born. Spends his life from childhood to adulthood to parenthood and after completing his life cycle dies. When he dies, his spirit is taken out (by God) and his body is left to be buried or cremated as per that individual’s beliefs.
If we compare the two situations written above, we will find astonishing similarities. Bud is like the body conceived inside the womb, full grown flower is like adulthood and squeezing the fragrance is like spirit being taken out of the body and throwing of the petals is like the body is buried or cremated.
Now I will try to find out another analogy out of it, to understand the topic. It’s been scientifically proved that the human brain keeps growing until the age of 20 – 21 years and after that it starts shrinking. That could be the reason that a kid is sent to school and then college and then university so that his mental faculty is grown to its fullest by the time he reaches the age of 20 years, because after that, whatever he would be learning would be more based on his life experiences rather than new learning.
The learning so acquired by the age of 20 years would remain with him as long as he keeps upgrading it with his experiences through continuous thinking and learning. If he fails to make use of his learning while his brain starts shrinking, he will start loosing track of the information he has acquired over the years, to be used at the later stages of his life. A disease called Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example.
The growth of our mental faculty is like the bud, nourishing it with knowledge through education is like injecting fragrance into the rose. Squeezing the rose and extracting its fragrance is like forcing the mind, to leave its comfort zone and think out of the box to see, what others can’t see. The outcome of making use of the knowledge so acquired, are the words of wisdom (WoW), coming from people having knowledge and spreading them (WoW) to make a better world, is like using the rose fragrance and making the surrounding afresh.
These ‘Words of Wisdom’ (WoW) are the fragrances with which the world will keep smelling, even when the body carrying that mind would no more be around.
THINK before you are thought. If you will not THINK, someone else will THINK on your behalf. But that someone else will not THINK, what you should THINK, he will THINK, what he wants you to THINK and in this whole process, you will loose track of your thought.
So there is no harm in THINKing, as long as it is for the sake of knowing the purpose of you being alive as a human.
Because it is only you, among all the living species of His creation, who has been bestowed upon, with a beautiful gift called MIND.
The black color depicts negativity, whereas white reflects positivism. This blog is an extension of making analogy of Black and White.
I come home in the evening from work and cook something in a cooking pan (which is usually black in color), to eat . Once I am done with cooking, the pan is put under the tap and I see it cools down with a hissing sound and white fumes come out of it into the air.
I made an analogy considering myself as the cooking pan (as I have quite a few shortcomings in my wheeling dealing). When I get angry its like the cooking pan is put on the stove. What is being cooked is like anger (which is actually danger).
Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in one of his sermons has asked his followers to drink water if they get angry, also if you are standing, sit down and if you are sitting lie down.
So as I get angry, it is like I as a pan is put on fire, I drink water which is like putting the pan under tap and the white fumes are like my soul (soul is usually portrayed as white fumes levitating in the air), getting cleansed.
Anger actually suffocates your soul and drinking water actually cleanses the soul to make it pure. Follow this method to manage your anger and share your experience, if it works, thanks.
When a balloon (longer one not the round one) is filled with air, it erects upright, and if the same balloon is filled with Water, it bows down.
Exactly the same way, a person without knowledge will always be more egoistic, having a rod in his neck to remain uptight, more vocal and not willing to listen, start fighting when failing in an argument. Being egoist and empty inside, he will try to portray himself as if he knows everything and rest of the others are dumb.
Its like when an empty glass is hit with a spoon, it sounds but the same glass when filled with water does not give sound, when hit by a spoon. A knowledgeable person is like a glass filled water, so he does not tell everyone that he has knowledge, whereas a person without knowledge always portrays himself as knowledgeable by talking loud in front of the gathering.
Whereas a person with knowledge will always be humble, willing to listen and show humility while interacting with people. Will always be helping and kind to people around him.
Actually it is him, who is supposed to be portraying himself as being knowledgeable but it is always contrary to, what is the norm and that’s what makes him UNIQUE, which is one of the characteristic of Almighty Allah.
Yet another way of looking at the same principle explained in my previous blog, would help me to justify the title of my blog, which says “Life as EYE see it”.
Archimedes‘ principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces.
From the pic above, we can make an analogy, that water lifts up a huge vessel with more empty space (air) above. So, if an ignorant (an empty person having no knowledge) gets in touch with a knowledgeable person then that man of intellect will lift him up.
This water analogy has opened up my mind to such an extent that I can’t avoid thinking. The more I think ,the more I am in a state of awe, to see the hidden realities of knowledge. The more I know about the power of knowledge, the more I feel ignorant, which compels me to seek more knowledge. I feel like I am floating ignorantly on the deep sea of knowledge.
Look for more such analogies shortly.
