A Missed Chance

A missed opportunity of talking to Almighty Allah

You know

When you see your bus moving right past you

When a train is missed

When you lose your ticket and the flight takes off

That ache of longing That pain of yearning That comes from missing a chance of talking to your Best Friend

For a while you lose everything

The peace that holds you together

The strength that binds your being

Then you find another chance

That comes like an old friend

Like the cool breeze before the rain

Like a soothing reassurance

Then comes down the rain

That embraces you with open arms and a kind heart

It listens patiently Without judging And then everything morphs into ONE

From falling rain to dropping tears

Then

Tranquility befalls

In the lap of the aching heart

In that moment

The bond is mended

 and

The Oath is renewed    

and

The Friendship gets stronger than ever

But

I still cry over this missed chance to pour my heart to you

A missed opportunity of talking to You about me and everything I had, I have and I will ever have

From everything that You love to the ones I do.

 

The hope remains Till we meet again In another realm.

Soul Goals

You, me, all of us; are specks of amazement and streaks of wonder, boxed in finite beings as infinite souls. We are much much more than just beings.

We are a universe in ourselves.

Then how can this universe be so meager and minute, so limited and finite. With limitless desires of the heart and endless beliefs in the mind how we can limit ourselves to mere existences.

The mysteries of the soul are beyond the comprehension of this world.

Soul is never satisfied with worldly gains and materialistic possessions. The most difficult task in life is to quench the thirst of the soul. It desires quality over quantity, it wishes tranquility over clatter, it needs peace more than hustle, it wants to declutter rather than hoard and it aims to listen rather than speak. Still it expresses itself in strange unusual ways; a word of prayer for something, a gesture of tender loving care for someone, a sense of belonging to some place. The soul dwells in the past, present and the future all at once.

Soul is both boundless and rebellious.

You can’t confine it within the physical boundaries of time and place. The soul craves a passion adorned with love, crafted with care and protected with prayers. Be it a person, a place, or a feel.

The goals of the soul are the friend of the self and enemy of the ego.

The goals of the soul open up new dimensions in a world never seen before. The goal that doesn’t bring the being closer to the Almighty is not meant for the soul. Sometimes you find yourself and befriend your soul so early so easily and sometimes it takes up your whole life and energy. Sometimes you find yourself in the world around, sometimes in someone’s prayers and sometimes this remains a never-ending journey. A journey that is unable to reach its destination. You know what the biggest blessing in life is, it is to find pieces of yourself in someone else, to see yourself through someone else’s eyes, to discover the hidden treasures of your being with someone’s help. So when you see someone, when I meet you and you find me let the souls be acquainted with each other and meet yourself through one another.

Find yourself in others and with others.
