We Are The Mirror Of Our Heart

We are the mirror of our heart and in order to be a quality human being with good moral and good values, we should always ponder on ourselves and learn to correct ourselves by building and developing in us all the good values thus slowly eradicating and letting go the undesirable traits within us to inculcate more good then bad. In order to achieve to this stage it would be like turning a solid iron bar into soft liquid, it takes time and daily practise with strong self control and strong self discipline and the willingness to a change to some qualities which are really not familiar to us.

The divine love will not come alive in us until the enemy, the desires of our flesh dies and leave us. First, we must be cleansed of that ego, that commands, our whole being to evil; then we will have a partial conscience although continuing to sin. We will have a feeling of self reproach - but this is not enough. They must pass beyond that stage to the level where the truth will be revealed in us, the truth of the right and the wrong, then we will stop doing wrong and do that which is right, thus the being will be cleansed. We must fight against if animal desires - gluttony, excessive sleep, idle occupations - and against the characteristic of the wild beast in us; negativity, anger, fighting, aggressiveness. Then we must work to rid ourself of the evil habits of the ego; arrogance, pride, envy, vengeance, greed, and all the other afflictions and sickness of the body and of the heart.

It is really difficult but only those who are able to do this change are then truly repentant and are cleansed and pure. In order to achieve to this stage, we ought to have "Istiqamah" in us, a word in Arabic which simply means "straightening". We ought to practise purifying ourselves continuously and consistently, then only perhaps we will be able to achieve the highest level of goodness in us.

"Just as the body cannot exist without blood, so the soul need the matchless and pure strength of faith"
Quote by Mahatma Gandhi

A great video for you to listen and ponder on the lyrics

Hi LadyJava,
Thanks for visiting. Experience through hardship and after being betrayed from the family members have taught me to be able wrtie this short topic. It is really painful and sad, so I got to analyse and look deep into my heart & be strong, put my head high and to try to build up some good qualities to stay calm and be my own hero with all sorts of challenges in life! :) ;) 8-) 8-) :*
