“The man can have nothing except what he strives for … Al-Quran 53-39)
By: Junaid Abdullah
Mind (a software or can be named as a powerhouse) utilizes its energy nicely. It functions effectively when we hand over to it any plan, desire, or purpose that we wish to transform into physical form. Whether the desire (goal) is based on morality or not, small or big, good for society or not, it hardly matters to the mind. God has given our mind the power to act upon one’s desires and goals up to their ultimate. If we fail to plant goals or desires in our mind, it will nourish the worthless thoughts because its subconscious part never remains idle.
Now it is in the hands of a man to examine whether the thoughts dominating his mind are constructive or destructive because dominated thoughts magnetize our mind, which further attracts the power that coordinates with the nature of our dominating thoughts, and that is why we must magnetize our mind with intense desire to accumulate big goals. But on the contrary, our minds are stuck to some limited achievements while this changed world is fond of practical dreamers who can and will reach the highest levels.
This fear is only because of a lack of faith and the negative impulses that have conquered their minds. Most unfortunate is that such negative thoughts inject themselves with their own accord into the thought impulses, but the positive thoughts must be exercised and administered.
So For the accumulation of highest, we must break the shackles of our mind in which we have entangled our goals and desires, then and only our mind will generate the power which is required for the accumulation of the best i.e. the power of faith which supplies staying power and helps one to keep going when the going is hard. Mere plans are of no purpose until and unless we possess some extra ingredient to help fight obstacles when everything is against us. Beyond the shadows of doubt, that extra ingredient is the power of faith, which helps to stand up to the challenges; when no one stands for you, it will surely be the obstacle that has to break because faith power does wonder.
Let’s analyse the records of any men who accumulated a great fortune. In them, we will find the coordination between the power of mind associated with the power of faith and the goals they possessed. But counter to it, we tend to live among those who refuse to set goals and win, who burry their ideas in their subconscious to enjoy failure, the reasons they counter may be different like the fear of criticism, poverty etc. which may fallow their way. This fear is only because of a lack of faith and the negative impulses that have conquered their minds. Most unfortunate is that such negative thoughts inject themselves with their own accord into the thought impulses, but the positive thoughts must be exercised and administered.
For the accumulation of highest, we must break the shackles of our mind in which we have entangled our goals and desires, then and only our mind will generate the power which is required for the accumulation of the best i.e. the power of faith which supplies staying power and helps one to keep going when the going is hard.
So the obligation is to discourage such destructive thoughts and encourage positive thoughts through the faculty of willpower backed with faith. Because the control of the mind through willpower is never difficult, we obviously can’t ignore or slash the hardships of the world which will find our way, but neither should we allow them to dominate our thoughts because the hurdles and obstacles that follow our path are never certified to destroy our happiness and well-being, it is when we are willing to be defeated. We have to follow our track with an attitude of faith to receive sufficient power and reasonable confidence to achieve our big target. Imagine if a group of such powerful minds work together simultaneously with the spirit of harmony, then obviously the outcome will be pretty surprising, and society will prosper to better.
The trapped energy in our minds needs to be liberated and properly employed with faith because no matter how down we are, the best is within us. We just need to stand up, find it out, release it and rise with it. Change in our mindset is crucial because the changed way of thinking will give birth to new revolutionary thoughts, which will further lead to innovative actions and engaging in these actions will sink one in the ocean of wisdom and wiseness.
