SPIRITUAL WISDOM

Psalms 27:13

Published

on

In Psalms 27: 13, we read, this is the confidence that I have: that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I love this verse because it always reminds me of some wisdom I would love to share with you. This wisdom will help you eliminate the stress or anxiety of whether you will achieve your dreams or not. It is the wisdom of ancient ages, and it has been preached by both spiritual leaders and motivational gurus. It is known as conscious detachment or a sense of knowing.

Conscious detachment refers to a person’s ability to stop worrying about whether he will achieve his goals or not because he is confident that he will achieve them. It means to stop being anxious about the success of your projects. For instance, if you start a business with the aim of making it a big business. You only concentrate on working on the business, and you stop worrying about whether it will succeed or not because you are confident that it will succeed.

A person with this sense of knowing is just like the Psalmist. He has the confidence that he will see the goodness of the Lord before he dies. He knows he will be blessed, he knows things will work out for him, and therefore, he never succumbs to worry and anxiety. This level of confidence is very beautiful and reliable because it makes you work hard on achieving your goals without worry.

Without a sense of knowing, it is hard to achieve your goals because you will always be worrying about whether you will achieve them or not. The moment you start worrying about the result, it becomes very easy for you to give up. However, when you are confident of the result, you will always work hard, and you will also be able to risk and sacrifice a lot for the sake of achieving your goals. And once you start risking and sacrificing, success is guaranteed. And this is why we must embrace conscious detachment; we must develop a sense of knowing that gives us an immense amount of confidence that we will succeed in our endeavors.

You only lose what you cling to -Buddha

      IN my opinion. The primary value in wisdom is the fact that it enables an individual to know how to deal with or how to go through Life

Book Review

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.
