Affirmation - How to get God's help in an instant

Allah has said that HE is closer to us than our jugular vein. It is also said that HE loves us more many times over than our mother possibly can. Clearly HE is also a being of ultimate power who communicates to us through the universe. But the question arises in my mind: “if this is so how can I ask HIM for help?”

I have written below one answer I have found.

An Affirmation can be described as: When you think about something it happens.

Let’s think of humans as machines for a moment. In that sense the thoughts that go through our minds influence us. Eventually the actions we do are a reflection of the thoughts we keep. In fact each action we do is completely derived from the collection of thoughts that have brought it into creation [through interplay of our conscious and subconscious minds and the environment that brings to us the particular situation].

If this is so than by ‘invoking’ thoughts we should be able to create events in the future through our actions that we don’t know of.

But what thoughts should we ‘invoke’ to generate fortune, love, beauty, peace, power, healing, knowledge, etc.

And the best answer I have at present is to meditate on the 99 names of Allah. Each name is an attribute of HIS that exhibits itself as phenomena in the universe. You can find these names here.

Let’s take ‘Al-Shafi’ for example the ‘Healing’ attribute of God [I don't think it's in these 99 names...].

In my experience meditating on this attribute brings an immediate sense of peace in my heart and I begin to intuitively recognize the various ways in which the universe works to heal me. [One of these phenomena is the progress of medical science that we have seen. Then the kinds of music that have a healing effect, the song birds sing, the sound of a water-fall or even our ability to experience love.]

Thus through this meditation we begin to co-create [at a conscious and subconscious level] events in our future that will heal us and serve to heal others.

Thus invoking each of the 99 names of Allah has an immediate effect on our life.

NOTES
1. When we stall various Lateral Thinking tools [such as by Edward De Bono] serve to help us find ‘grasping points’ through which we can take further our thoughts on the situation at hand.

Explanation of the movie 'Revolver'

I saw the movie for the umpteenth time last night and I finally got it.

This is what the movie says:

1) In every game and con there is always a victim and there is always an opponent. It's good to know when you are the former so you can become the latter.

2) But the question is how do you prepare yourself for this game?

3) You only get smater by playing a smarter opponent.

4) The smarter the game the smarter the opponent

5) Checkers is an example of such a game. Chess is a better game. Debate is an even better opportunity to learn and so on.

6) But the question is where does the game stop? or one can ask what is the smartest game one can play?

7) The answer according to the movie is: "The game of con you play with yourself".

Why feedback is important

We learn about the world as we get feedback from things within it such as from family, friends, mentors and even books.

Feedback can tell you where you went wrong and affirm what you do right. It can thus help you predict the future.

Interestingly there are people I have met who question the importance of feedback. They say: “I can figure out everything I need to on my own. I don’t need feedback like others do.” This is not true. In fact there is a big danger lurking in this notion.

If the world you are creating is your own you might get stuck in it or some part of it and not know what to do next.

If however, this world of yours and all parts of it are based on some feedback you will always know who to ask if you get stuck.

Somebody once said that "fundamentally we are here not to be seen, but to see" i.e. to see things outside of ourself. You will notice that all growth you have had has owed itself to some consistent feedback.

Suppose you wrote an essay. You wouldn't rea…

The beauty of self-negation

Self-negation is the act of exercising your will power to do what you don’t want to do such that you benefit from this act [of self negation]. The more one practices self-negation the better you get at controlling your will and making it do what you want it to, when you want it to.

For obvious reasons this can have tremendous benefits. Just imagine a situation where your superior wants you to sit late or gives you a task that is very difficult and you have enough control over yourself to not get flustered! In fact imagine turning your world into the world you always imagined as a child… by taking the difficult steps, through self-negation…one can only marvel at the beauty of creating the world you want!

We get the chance to practice self-negation many times in the day, each chance another ‘opportunity’ to get better at controlling ourselves.

Every time we sit down to eat for example we can eat good food in the quantity that the body requires and after that leave some space in our stoma…
