rich soul

Sometimes our lack of appreciation for what we have causes us to be discontent with our lives and then continuously search for contentment elsewhere, in other things, and in other people. Not realising that these things won’t bring us true contentment.

Appreciate all that Allah has given you. Say Alhamdulillah in every situation whether you’re rich or poor, happy or going through sadness. Put your trust in Allah and say Alhamdulillah.

And know that their is a blessing even in the most simplest of things and even in the struggle.

ليس الغنى عن كثرة العرض و لكن الغنى غنى النفس

“Wealth is not in having many posessions, true wealth is the richness of the soul.”

❛ My power over you grows stronger yet. ❜
❛ Phantom of the Opera is there, inside your mind. ❜
❛ Your part is silent, little toad! ❜
❛ Perhaps it is you who are the toad… ❜
❛ Flattering child, you shall know me, see why in shadow I hide! ❜
❛ Seal my fate tonight. ❜
❛ I hate to have to cut the fun short, but the joke’s wearing thin. ❜
❛ Let the audience in. ❜
❛ God, give me courage to show you you are not alone! ❜
❛ Pitiful creature of darkness, what kind of life have you known? ❜
❛ I heard as I’d never heard before. ❜
❛ What you heard was a dream and nothing more. ❜
❛ Those pleading eyes, that both threaten and adore… ❜
❛ That voice which calls to me and speaks my name. ❜  
❛ And do I dream again? ❜
❛ You have come here, in pursuit of your deepest urge. ❜
❛ I have brought you, that our passions may fuse and merge. ❜
❛ In your mind you’ve already sucummed to me. ❜  
❛ Now you are here with me. No second thoughts. ❜
❛ Past the point of no return. ❜
❛ What raging fire shall flood the soul? ❜
❛ What rich desires unlock its door? ❜  
❛ What sweet seductions lie before us? ❜
❛ Those who have seen your face draw back in fear. ❜
❛ Did you think that I had left you for good? ❜
❛ Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair! ❜
❛ You’ve past the point of no return. ❜
❛ You try my patience make your choice. ❜
❛ I gave you my mind blindly. ❜
❛ Wandering child, so lost, so helpless, yearning for my guidance. ❜
❛ Have you forgotten your Angel? ❜
❛ Wildly my mind beats against you… ❜
❛ Think of me, think of me waking, silent and resigne. ❜
❛ Imagine me, trying too hard to put you from my mind. ❜
❛ Can I ever forget that sight? ❜
❛ Can I ever escape from that face? ❜
❛ Past the point of no return - no going back now. ❜
❛ When will the flames, at last, consume us? ❜
❛ When will the blood begin to race? ❜
❛ I remember… there was mist. ❜
❛ Who was that shape in the shadows? ❜
❛ Whose is that face in the mask? ❜
❛ Damn you! You little prying Pandora! You little demon! ❜
❛ Is this what you wanted to see? Curse you! ❜
❛ Now you cannot ever be free! ❜
❛ Come. We must return. ❜
❛ Those two fools who run my theater will be missing you. ❜
❛ No kind word from anyone! No compassion anywhere! ❜
❛ Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime. ❜
❛ Lead me, save me from my solitude. ❜
❛ Say you’ll want me with you here beside you. ❜
❛ Anywhere you go, let me go too. ❜
❛ Can you even dare to look or bear to think of me? ❜
❛ Have you no pity? ❜
❛ Your lover makes a passionate plea. ❜
❛ Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world! ❜
❛ Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before! ❜
❛ Only then can you belong to me… ❜  
❛ You alone can make my song take flight. ❜
❛ It’s over now, the music of the night. ❜
❛ Twisted every way, what answer can I give? ❜
❛ Say you love him/her, and my life is over! ❜
❛ Now, let it be war upon you both! ❜
❛ See you later, because I’m going now. ❜
❛ This haunted face holds no horror for me now. ❜
❛ It’s in your soul that the true distortion lies. ❜
❛ For the past three years, these things do happen! ❜
❛ And did you stop them from happening? No! ❜
❛ Why have you brought me here? ❜
❛ We can’t go back there. ❜
❛ I can’t escape from him/her/them… ❜
❛ Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes! ❜
❛ Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death! ❜
❛ Go now, don’t let them find you. ❜
❛ I fought so hard to free you! ❜  
❛ Say you love me. ❜
❛ Your chains are still mine! You belong to me! ❜
❛ Wait! I think my dear, we have a guest. ❜
❛ I had rather hoped that you would come. ❜
❛ Free him/her! Do what you like only free him/her! ❜
❛ Does that mean nothing I love him/her! Show some compassion! ❜
❛ The world showed no compassion to me! ❜
❛ Did you think that I would harm him/her? ❜
❛ Too late for prayers and useless pity! ❜
❛ You little demon - is this what you wanted to see? ❜
❛ Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend. ❜
❛ Look around, there’s another mask behind you! ❜
❛ Please promise me that sometimes, you will think… of me! ❜
❛ Where in the world have you been hiding? ❜
❛ I only wish I knew your secret. ❜
❛ Who is your great tutor? ❜
❛ Why you spray on my chin all the time, huh? ❜
❛ The final threshold! ❜
❛ They say that this youth has set my lady’s heart aflame! ❜
❛ Go away, for the trap is set and waits for its prey! ❜
❛ There is no phantom of the opera. ❜
❛ Look, your future bride! Just think of it! ❜
❛ Please don’t, they’ll see. ❜
❛ But why is it secret? What have we to hide? ❜
❛ It’s an engagement, not a crime! ❜
.لَيْسَ الْغِنَى عَنْ كَثْرَةِ الْعَرَضِ وَلَكِنَّ الْغِنَى غِنَى النَّفْسِ
Richness is not having many possessions. Rather, true richness is the richness of the soul.

Creating a Field of Good Service

Be ever ready to serve with pure love, kindness and courtesy. Never grumble half doubt during service. Serve selflessly without any selfish motive or gain. Watch for opportunities to serve or create opportunities. Create a field for good service. Create work.

Live a life of utter devotion to service. Let us strive to live as a blessing to others. If you want to achieve this, you will have to refine your mind. 

One can refine their minds by polishing your character. You will have to mould or build your character. This we can achieve by developing sympathy, affection, benevolence, tolerance and humility towards one another. 

Do not fight with others if their viewpoint differs from you. There are many modes of thinking. There are honest differences of opinion. Everyone is entitled to having their own viewpoint. Adjust yourself to their views. Hear their views also with love, sympathy and attention and give them a place. Stand against evil though. God wants us to fight against evil not stand beside it. 

Envelop yourself in Yoga or Isvararpana. Let us live by the motto-  ‘One thing at a time and that done well is a very good rule as many can tell.’ 

By K. Nagori

As a little girl nobody told you..
You would have to grow up and be defined beautiful..
Not by your wits, sarcasm, or lovely crooked grin
Not by the kinks and curls of your hair
Not by the richness of your soul
Not by your own standards that you uphold
But by the size of clothes
And the tone of your skin
Which is Melanin and radiant
Skin that you love, skin that’s healed and grown
Skin that has protected your body all your life
Skin that you’ve made a home in
How can society tell you that you aren’t beautiful…
Because of your appearance
You aren’t made of make up and shallowness
You are skin, bones, and a soul
Filled with love
You are golden
Beautiful girl.

Saturn

“The rings are, of course, symbolic of the Laws of Karma. The position Saturn holds in space is indicative of the fact that a person cannot incorporate the energies of the furthest planets - Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, into his individualised consciousness without first passing the various tests of personal responsibility so that he proves himself capable of handling the energies of a more evolved state.” - Alan Oken

Saturn in the first house:
The illusion of being trapped in his own skin leads the first house Saturn person into a dark tomb with himself acting as the cruel prison guard. The individual may feel as if his own individuality and unique expression is wrapped in a tangle hold and only amounts in shame. When he smiles, the years drip away, and a fabulous, glow crosses his face like a beaming light. His smile is his most unforgettable feature.

Saturn in the second house:
When the planet of value, Saturn, finds itself in the second house of value, the individual is driven toward finding, sustaining and retaining what he finds personally meaningful and resourceful. While some manifestations of this placement relate to acquiring material possessions, the second house jewels stem further into the soul riches that make his heart sing. This can be diamonds, people, feelings, God, comforts, security and establishing a sense of ownership over things that make him feel.

Saturn in the third house:
Despite his gentle and thoughtful expression, the individual can become so caught up in his self conscious fears he struggles to release his words. Once he finds his mental niche, his brilliant mind is unmatched in expertise.  It’s like the third house Saturn person watches his life pass by through the sepia lenses of someone who has lived a million times over.

Saturn in the fourth house:
Fourth house Saturn people are saturated in the search for a meaningful inner experience. A place of comfort, a sanctuary of retreat away from the world is the longstanding lullaby that soothes their psychological complexes and unfulfilled childhood needs. The world melts away on the sail through their rich inner world. Houses breathe to them

Saturn in the fifth house:
More than anything, the fifth house Saturn person wants to be loved. There may be a gaping hole in his chest he feels he can’t fill, as though he is unworthy or somehow defective and unlovable. He may be desperate to feel that soul-saturating, particle shattering love, although he blocks himself and self isolates from these opportunities. 

Saturn in the sixth house:
The individual can be a disciple of the highest order, a spirit here on earth to offer out arms in service and healing riches. There can be a high level of nervous tension and digestive upset with Saturn in the sixth. Health tends to be a priority of life, strange or wavering health problems can seem like fate

Saturn in the seventh house:
 Without love, the individual may experience harsh feelings of self deprecation and inadequacy, but Saturn won’t stand by while he enters relationships out of loneliness and not love. He will be forced to love the person in the mirror before he is given free reign amongst others.

Saturn in the eighth house:
The 8th house is a torrential journey through dark channels of the psyche and unconscious, the breathing and the expired, the graveyard of ashes and rebirth. The raw and forceful tugs of Saturn force a steady and contrarious experience. Such streams create a battleground of mental and transcendental power. This is a spirit capable of extending between between the material world and the supernal, co consciously. 

Saturn in the ninth house:
Dane Rudyhar discusses the idea of Saturn in the ninth being forced to provide concrete and personalized application to the mystical experience. That is making magic, there can be no tricks, illusions, or acceptance in blind faith. Symbolism becomes rich in everyday life and a direct reflection of the illuminated God within. Saturn in the ninth is the disciple of the cosmos, the magician of all spiritual law, the master of the material plane, pouring the cosmic fountain of pure wizardry.

Saturn in the tenth house
There is something magical and crackling about Saturn in the tenth. Like they are a wizard of every time period in history, holding an hourglass filled with sorcerers dust, cradling the orb in their hands that knows how to turn far away dreams into something real and wonderful. This is Saturn’s royal progeny, his golden child, the one he will carry under his wing and thrust into glory.

Saturn in the eleventh house
The eleventh Saturn person may disappear from the social scene for days or even weeks on end. The individual may also prefer to eschew entertaining interpersonal contact until he is ready. There is a deep fondness for privacy. His inner circle is likely small and the people that know him best may know a completely different personality altogether than outsiders

Saturn in the twelfth house
Saturn here screams from the subconscious in search of recognition for the interconnection between all beings, God and the universe; calling for an obliteration of the ego in return for sewing themselves amongst the tapestry of wholeness. Saturn in the 12th are forced to submit to the collective, despite their intrinsic, overwhelming illusion of separation.
