A Mine of Rubies~Rumi

 



Last night I learned how to be a lover of God,
To live in this world and call nothing my own.

I looked inward
and the beauty of my own emptiness
filled me till dawn.
It enveloped me like a mine of rubies.
Its hue clothed me in red silk.

Within the cavern of my soul
I heard a voice of a lover crying,
"Drink now! Drink now!" --

I took a sip and saw the vast ocean --
Wave upon wave caressed my soul.
The lovers of God dance around
And the circle of their steps
becomes a ring of fire round my neck.

Heaven calls me with its rain and thunder --
a hundred thousand cries
yet I cannot hear ...

All I hear is the call of my Beloved.

        ~Maulana Rumi

I chose to be HAPPY

Going through the storms of life and walking on the thorns of roses, opened up my soul to an amazing spiritual awakening until I realized that when we hold on to worldly attachments , we get hurt and bleed but when we hold on to heavenly attachments, we get healed in the realms of God’s Love and Light and I discovered an amazing fact that life is beautiful when we fill it with SMILES reflecting that we chose to be HAPPY. SMILES generate positive emotions within our souls, lights up our hearts, empowers our minds eventually enabling us to spread love, light, joy and serenity ..Thank you God for Your Endless Blessings..

Spiritual healing process


watching the sunset from my home
 I realized that we live in loneliness when we spend time with people who don’t experience what  we are going through. Sometimes there are lots  of people around us, but there are no words to heave the pain of our deepest wound   which eventually creates the loneliness in the midst of the crowd… sometimes we keep running into the same direction of  people without realizing that we are creating more rooms of loneliness. When our hearts cries out  to our Lord in the deepest moments of  loneliness, He answers our cries in many ways to comfort us. One of  His amazing ways which I feel as one of the greatest gifts He bestows on us  to heal our loneliness is meeting with the same kind of people who are experiencing the same bruises of hurt and bleeds of wounds.  It makes us become a sort of magnet meeting in a process of  healing as we have reached the realm of comfort zone. Through each meetings we realize that our hurts was because of our expectation on perfect relationship and the bleeds increases day by day until drawing  us away from God until we discovered a spiritual awakening through the sharing of hurtful moments and we realised that, when we put our ultimate expectations and hopes on human, we bleed and going through the process of hurting moments but when we put trust in God and place our ultimate expectation  on God, the healing process begins.

Describe the obstacles that the main character faced.With close reference to the text, how did he or she overcome these obstacles? (Step by Wicked Step)



(a) Based on the novel you have studied, describe the obstacles that the main character faced.With close reference to the text, how did he or she overcome these obstacles?
             Support your answer with close reference to the text.


[15 marks]   (SBP 2013)
Nurin Jazlina binti Ahmad (saujana impian,kajang) Thank you Nurin for your contribution:
I choose the novel “Step by Wicked Step” written by Anne Fine as there are many main characters in the novel who have faced a lot of obstacles in their life. This novel is regarding  five British school children from Stagfire who had arrived ahead of their classmates for a week-long field trip at "haunted' Old Harwick Hall. They found a long-abandoned secret room containing a mysterious journal which uncovered a heart rending story of Richard Clayton Harwick, who runs away from the sinister influence of a loveless stepfather. This discovery made them reveal and share their own engrossing, heart-rending  stories filled with hurting and healing moments.The main characters that I choose is Richard Clayton Harwick because he faced a lot of obstacles in his life and finally managed to overcome them in the midst of sadness.

      One of his obstacles is rejection of love. Richard felt that his love was being rejected by his mother and his sister as his mother never defended him when his cynical stepfather confronted him. His sister never supported him when he gave his opinion. Richard tried to run away from this obstacle by running away from home to work at sea.
       The second obstacle is when his stepfather sent him to Mordanger School. This is because his stepfather wanted to teach him to be good and not rebellious. However in Mordanger School Richard had learned nothing except how to freeze , how to starve and  he was also bullied and beaten. Her mother said that everything his stepfather did was for his own good, so he will grow up strong and manly and be a son whom they can be proud of.
       Later in the novel, Richard could not face the reality when he saw the letter from Charlotte. He realised that he had made bad choices that caused his loved ones pain and sorrow. He  misunderstood that his mother and his sister really loved him. When he run away, his mother spent a lot of money to search for him until her mother’s financial ruin and led to her early death. His sister had to sacrifice herself when she had to marry a rich person whom she did not love. It is because she just wanted the money to search for Richard. He misunderstood his mother,father and sister and he felt unloved all the while until one day he got a news of a will.  When he returned, he realised in grief his father gave all these land of Old Harwick Hall to Richard.
Richard have made a lot of mistake on handling his obstacle. He should think deeply and wisely so that he will not regret. So when we want to handle any obstacle we have to think of our loved ones and we have to make sure that it will not affect people around us.

Focusing on the positive LIGHT


My musings this time are for those who are going through emotional hard times like me.
Let us focus on the positive LIGHT and move on with FAITH in God. May God guide us all in His LIGHT of mercy, love and serenity so that we may abide in His COMFORT zone. 

 When we feel our whole life crushing,don’t give up,try talking to ourselves that the dawn is near and when we see things around us falling apart, try to wake up, trust in God and move on. I am experiencing hurtful falls, bleeding without healing,  giving without getting and I am sure some of us also feel the same way at times…so let us be self motivated, appreciate the other amazing blessings that God has granted us, so move on, think, walk and breath in the positive light as people living in the positive life are always successful, happy, thoughtful and serene….
 
Light is from God and  the positive side is light, and the negative side is darkness, so let us stay on the positive side even if the area is small, focus our hearts, minds and soul to the positive light. There might be lots of negative sides in us or surrounding us, but if we focus on one positive element it can make us bloom in the positive aura. Avoid negative self talk and foster positive self talk.

A beautiful day



Start a beautiful journey each day
Let go of all the worries
Start a new day with beautiful feelings and thoughts
Visualize it with beautiful deeds…
A beautiful day  brings new joy and serenity 
When we walk and move on with Faith
Spreading  the healing moments
When we keep on smiling
Being the sun that warms hearts,
Being the rainbow that colours souls
And being the stars that empowers minds.
So reveal your smile, time, love and  joy from your heart
As the essence of a beautiful life is in giving not in getting
and in sharing not receiving
As the reflection of God’s beauty exhales
 A  beautiful day inhales

With much love and light,

Seeking Closeness to the Beloved



True Love is pure love,
It grows beautifully in the midst of loneliness
It breaks the silence and whispers the warmness
It offers the roses and hides the thorns
It bleeds to breath the comfort
It heals and brings joy

If your love is by God, for God and because of God
Your love will bring serenity, beauty, honesty…
You’ll live in God’s comfort zone
No fears, no worries
Each breath
is filled with the air of love
Each step
is moved by the winds of mercy

much love & light

"If you are seeking closeness to the Beloved, love everyone. Whether in their presence or absence, see only their good. If you want to be as clear and refreshing as the breath of the morning breeze, like the sun, have nothing but warmth and light for everyone."~Shaikh Abu-Saeed Abil-Kheir
