breath taking beauty

People often ask ‘how is life treating you?’ Perhaps the more accurate question is ‘how are you treating yourself?’
—  Sepi Tajima

“You’ll never truly understand a verse until something in your life makes you see it and appreciate it in a whole new way.”

I was feeling so down for the past week because of something. Today, i opened the Qur'an to a random page and subhanallah. Of all the surah’s in the Qur'an it could’ve opened to, and it opened to Surah Yusuf. And i found myself crying because of the ayaats i was reading.

Sometimes, things don’t go the way you wanted it to and it hurts. But you just have to find the strength to push the pain aside and remind yourself He is the best of Planners. And He will never leave you empty handed.

What is to come is better than what was.

“So patience is most fitting.”

[Surah Yusuf: 83]

But what if…

“Anakin, you remember how you called me grandmother when we met?” Jocasta Nu asked.

“Yes,” said Anakin, looking guilty.

“Are grandmothers the knowledge keepers on Tatooine?” Jocasta smiled.

Anakin smiled back. “Yes, Gran-Master.”

“None of that. You call me what you’re comfortable with, Anakin. I won’t stop giving you biscuits if you call me Grandmother.”

“The Grandmothers of Tatooine are storytellers and knowledge keepers. They’re like librarians, but also like higher up Jedi, such as yourself, Grandmother.”

Jocasta Nu would almost never feel free to say it, but that was the moment her heart became open to love.

After that, Anakin pretty much always calls Jocasta “Grandmother.”

Sometimes, though, if any of the members of the Council are around, he’ll catch himself and go back to “Master.” But every time he uses that it feels more wrong.

And then there are the times he catches himself only halfway through the word, and ends up calling Jocasta “Grandmaster.”

When Anakin’s thirteen there’s an entire Council session called to address the issue of young Skywalker apparently believing Jocasta Nu is the Grandmaster of the Jedi Order. Obi-Wan is horribly embarrassed.

(Rebellious Jedi younglings and even a few other padawans start referring to Jocasta as “Grandmaster” on purpose. This is definitely not behavior Anakin ever encourages.)

(And there’s definitely not a half-ironic, half-serious Jedi youth movement anonymously demanding that Yoda step down as Grandmaster and communicating with each other via space twitter using #grandmasterjocasta.)

Did your mom ever tell you, ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything’? She was right–and talking nicely also applies when you’re talking to yourself, even inside your head.

Thought to be situated somewhere in the Pyrenees, visitors speak of the breath-taking beauty of a chateau surrounded by formal gardens and lawns created out of the mountainous landscape by magic.
