Now I'm Free:

It is amazing how an illness can be a cure in itself.

The temperments, and experiances that are begotten not only reshape one's worldview but acknowledge the possibility of having another (in the first place). How far I've come from my own shell yet paradoxically find myself having returned to "what was closer" all along. Amazing how my frames of references have been shattered and rebuilt time and time again. It won't be far-fetched for me to say that the very sad act of seeing what was a mere construct, destroyed - can be a manifestation of Truth itself.

It is impossible to formulate a universal reconciliation of reason, and other possibilies; for doing so would be to tread or more appropriatly - step over the very opposing realms that attempt to diminish or destroy the other. Be pragmatic, let each one have 'their' share, and move on with what ought to be really concerning you...

Will the sum total of experiances matter or will it be a single moment. Was the universe eternal or created; will it end in some final act, or will it morph into something else, did we really come from single point or do we fall into the trap of infinite regression - who knows ? Will your current act, gurantee the consequences, or will the premonition, turn out to be some conspiracy that you willingly duped yourself into ?

When I'll come to know the answers, none of this will matter, because by then I'll realize it was not the answers that I was seeking, but an easy way out. Frame not the frames, but embrace the paradoxes of life.

Only now do you submit, but ironically, now you are free.

    Interesting post. Indeed there's reason to wonder why Muslims are behind. However, there is hope for renewal. It is with active positive doers examples are to set for others to follow ... I am certain of it. Communities start to paradigm-shift after they've asked questions 'Why'. Poeple will discuss their issues until it becomes everyday talk, then they start to change. And poeple can only start to ask and discuss if they are made aware. And there's hope. I think Muslims are starting to have better topics on media to develop healthy minds and serious personalities. And it is the doers who bring change .. those who care and take initiative.

    Yes, there are in fact many seemingly contradictions/irreconciliabities in life. Unless until the answer came, mere creatures like us can do nothing more than to complement good probablity-skill and dosages of faith. By that, hopefully, the answer will turn out to bear meaning for all these questions.

    This reminds me of a line from the book 'The Famished Road' by Ben Okri. "We are limited by the limitations of our own freedom"
