Living in Luxury is Not a Pipe Dream

Living in Luxury!

Observing the lifestyles of the rich and famous is a fun pastime for many of us. We dream of how cool it would be to live in the lap of luxury as they do. Fancy cars, premium restaurants, exotic vacations, mansions . what a life they lead! But, for most people, this dream is quickly followed by the thought not for me. And often some sort of condemnation of the rich follows to soothe our wounded ego because of how we’re not able to achieve what they have. 

Several serious fallacies surround the idea that what the rich and famous have cannot be achieved by most other persons. The ideas of scarcity and the moral wrongness of wealth are two of the primary culprits perpetuating the idea that a life of luxury is a pipe dream. The universe is abundantly overflowing with all that is needed for everyone it is individual thinking and feeling that directs the flow. If you believe in lack, lack is what you will get. If you believe in the infinite abundance and love of the universe, that is what you’ll get. The idea of the moral wrongness of having or acquiring great wealth and luxury is absurd in the face of a universe of unending supply. 

Dare to think outside of fear-based, limited supply ideas. You can live a life of luxury. There is no wrong in achieving a comfortable and abundant life. Your life is your responsibility. Your neighbor’s life is your neighbor’s responsibility. This is what makes giving to others and gratitude for what you have so rich. Giving to others is not an obligation, it is a choice motivated by love. Gratitude for what you have and what you receive will grow what you receive. Living in luxury can be yours if you choose it. By allowing yourself to enjoy that luxury without guilt, you are simultaneously allowing others the same right. In other words, you are loving others as you love yourself.

I am a Superhero With Super Powers.


As adults, we all like superheroes. For some reason, there is a lot to be said about those who put their personal safety aside for the sake of others.

SuperHeroKidHollywood, every now and then, reminds us of remarkable characters we once loved and for a short time we all become kids again. We snap out the memory to the thought that superheroes are mere childhood fantasies.

The reason for me to write down this little thought that crossed my mind is to share the thought that at some point of our lives we all thought that we were born to be superheroes with super powers.

With eyes wide open, each one of us will realize that we have deep within what it takes to be our own superheroes instead of just thinking that Hollywood characters are just fake fantasies.  

The Red “Alone But Never Lonely” Flag



ALONE BUT NEVER LONELY

Paradoxically, many human beings in today’s world have mastered the art of filling their hollow lives at the expense of the eerie silence. And sometimes, Alone but not lonely is a flag that we raise and cherish without realizing that’s it’s a red flag.

When we fall in that circle, we tend to try find ourselves means of distraction that will result in driving us slightly away from feelings of inaction and boredom. But the main wish to elude loneliness sticks and goes along the way with us side by side.

Loneliness and solitude are two distinct terms. Not to be mistaken, there’s an ocean of difference between the two. Solitude is when you freely decide to take some time out for your peace of mind whether you have a great deal of friends or not. Loneliness on the other hand is being without companions, it’s a no-choice situation, because you are either shy or you don’t have socializing tools.

In many places, there is for instance a certain category of youngsters who fall in the bad cliques pitfalls just for the sake of killing their time. Likewise, there are some single women who just literally date any man they have no genuine interest in while they hopefully await their alleged Mr. Right to show up.

Alone but never lonely must rather be a flag that radiates good omen. The silence we experience in our isolation should be a golden lesson for us that teaches us how to effectively listen to our inner voice and what’s going on in our deep down. It’s only then we can have the right and favorable space and time to think and react without being outwardly influenced.

Smile so The World Smiles Back With You


Smile and the world smiles back with you.

Surely, it isn’t just about grinning and showing few teeth. It’s about your own performance within your own area of influence in society. This performance is a key link to what type of people interact with you, how many well-wishers you have and haters that keep on hating you.

As an analogy, it’s much like the scoreboard in a gymnasium that shows and indicates the performance of the teams playing the game. In other words, we make people behave the way they do because they are influenced by our own behavior. It’s that simple and plain.

If you got a pretty charming smile, you should thank the Almighty God for bestowing his grace upon you. As a matter of fact, a simple smile can heal wounds and can captivate people bewitchingly because it’s miraculous. It’s free and as a Muslim, it’s an act of worship, so that’s more motivating and meaningful.

If you are embarrassed about the stains on your teeth or got crooked teeth, I guess you still can smile with your mouth shut because if you don’t you might miss a lot of virtues and goodness. Worse than that you might make your face to face interaction and body language influence the outer world negatively due to the way you behave.

With this approach and principle, and with our excitement and enthusiasm. I think we will definitely get the right and favorable response, and not only that, but attain power to reframe and change the world.
