What do we all seek? Why do we surround ourselves with our friends and family? Why do we go to see movies, read novels, or listen to music? For fun and enjoyment, huh. No. We do all this to bring peace to our heart and mind. We keep ourselves busy so that we can save ourselves from the disrupting voices in our heads. The voices that yell at us that some important ingredient is missing. Something is required.
Then, comes the quest for that ingredient. Is it hunger? Hunger’s satisfied. Now what? Clothes. Clothes are made available. Now what? Maybe a house. House bought. Still not satisfied? Maybe I need a car to feel happy. Maybe I need more money to be happy. Maybe I need a beautiful garden. And his list of maybes never ends.
Still dissatisfied. Maybe I am stressed, tensed, depressed, or angry. A medicine can make me feel better. Anti depressant or a sleeping pill, or something.
Maybe I need a break. A breath of fresh air.
Maybe I require some meditation and exercise.
Maybe…….there is a simple solution.
I should seek the missing ingredient.
Now, allow me take you back on a ride. Do you remember that when we were created we swore to God that we will worship Him?
That we will fulfill our duties.
You know what that ingredient was God.
The alarm disturbing you mind’s peace is the duty you swore to perform, but are not performing.
God is Someone whose Love and Worship gives us peace.
No movie will give you peace. But if you’ll sit alone in a room alone, call God for help, cry for the Blessings He has given you, just pray to him for five minutes, you’ll feel as light as a feather.
God Almighty told us to call Him for help even if we are having trouble wearing shoes. He also told us that only remembering him can give us peace.
A teacher once told me that she finds it very amusing when someone tells her that he or she is depressed. She found it unbelievable because a believer can never be depressed as he believes in God.
So, why not try such a simple inexpensive way to bring peace to your mind and heart?
P.S. Depression as a side effect of medical treatment is of course an exception.
