The sun and heart radiate warmth. Both things that are good and necessary for a good life. We need more things that radiate positivity in such a negative world. People who radiate light and love can change things for the better and we need that now more than ever. It all starts from the center of each of us and spreads out to others. We make a choice every day in what we reflect to those around us and that can influence people more than you know.
I got this on my Facebook recently. After un-friending someone they seem to make you want to feel guilty for doing so. You can un-follow, meaning you won’t see their posts but you remain friends which I have done a lot lately. However you just need to disconnect from someone for your own reasons. I think Facebook has been a hotbed and a petri dish for political and religious discussion which is not always friendly. Passions run red hot there and sometimes disconnecting is what is best for relationships and online enjoyment. It is sad when you have to end a online connection but there are plenty more to make out there.
From what I am seeing these days we need to infuse some hope, optimism and more importantly love into life. So many things have gotten us down that we need something to lift us up. Infusing good things into our lives will make things better I think. We need something to make things better for all. What you put into something can make the difference. An infusion of positivity can do amazing things and can change people fundamentally.
To all in the Muslim community celebrating the month of Ramadan I wish you peace during this time of prayer, fasting and reflection. May we find connections to bring us together and to seek new ways of understanding. As-salāmu ʿalaykum to everyone.
