Fulfillment of Life

Every day of our lives comes with a new hope or fear, joy or sadness, challenge or acceptance, positivity or negativity, certainty or uncertainty .

I hope you are full of positivity and joy while reading this.
There are days when we wake up and feel strength and peace within us and at times we also come up with difficulty and despair with no joy at all.  We wake up feeling tired and do not want to face the world. We feel guilt without any reason. We feel like facing challenges with difficulty and fear of failure.
Don’t you think if we face any kind of illness, loss, financial problem, complication in any relationship, we cannot be energetic? At times, while facing problems we are upset, feel down and full of negativity.
Apart from all this if we do not have any problem related to career, relationship, financial matter and have a nice life. But still “blues” take hold and we cannot put our finger to figure out a single reason behind our tension. We do not find any apparent cause of our depression and disappointment. We feel tired, anxious, even knowing that nothing is wrong around us.
No matter if we are aware of reason  or not,  negativity  or emotionally dreaminess leaves actually no room for action or peace.
This lack of willingness to face the world can be a cause of many reasons. We are in a quest of more and more all the time.

I feel when we feel unfulfilled in life we need few changes. We must focus to enhance our positive energy. Few adjustments and focus can give us new hopes and satisfaction.  All we need to do is to seek God in such times when we figure out nothing actually is missing, but we feel incomplete. This hollowness, sadness, incompleteness is because of our increasing distance from God. I believe that our heart long and look for God only without Him it do not feel peace and satisfaction. He is the one who can take us out of despair and helplessness.  Connection with Him can bring happiness, joy, enjoyment, peace and satisfaction. With His guidance you can get what you want. This is what our soul’s longing for to achieve. We can feel change after our connection with our Creator. Soon, we can experience a fulfilling direction.

Quran tells us that our connection will creator can heal our wounds and bring peace to our minds and soul.

Bible also agrees that greatest need of life is not simply guidance but a relationship with GOD.

So, what are your tips to regain a sense of well being and peace of mind and soul?

  • Life can be complete and fulfilled with love of Almighty Allah. It is only way to success. Thank you for a great post

  • Look within… God is within all of us. Sometimes we forget that. Happiness does not come from external things, but from within where God lives. I hope that makes sense. 🙂

  • Happiness starts within yourself.Our ups and downs in life make us stronger. No one can make you happy and when I realized that only me can make me happy and that is really who I have control over, I must say I feel an inner peace.

    "It is required of every man, that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellowmen, and travel far and wide; and if that spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death. It is doomed to wander through the world and witness what it cannot share, but might have shared on earth, and turned to happiness!"~Charles Dickens: Ghost of Jacob Marley in A Christmas Carol

  • Happiness is about being, satisfaction about doing. I'd tell you to ask yourself, why am I dissatisfied and what can I do about it, to be more satisfied, starting now, this moment.

    There's a saying "making someone happy", and I think it's fallacious. You cannot make anyone happy, it's something that's within. Especially when we try to make other people happy, it's never going to work.

    You can "make" yourself happy, or actually just believe you already are, and increase your level of satisfaction with your actions. And you can be happy for others. If they're happy for you and willing to help you, that's how the great, long lasting relationships happen. Does this make any sense?

  • You are so right, Anna! You cannot get anywhere while pulled down by negativity, but sometimes it can be hard to change those feelings. Only God can truly change our hearts, so we must look to Him. He doesn't want us to be lost in hopelessness and promises to be close to our hearts. That's a good thing to remember, especially this time of year.

  • Anna, your posts are so inspirational and encouraging. You are so right when you say that 'Connection with God can bring happiness, joy, enjoyment, peace and satisfaction." It would be hard to imagine going through life without that Source. God bless you, my friend.

  • Hello Catarina

    You are right that life is really uncertain. Positive thinking is very important but some ailments can not be cured by Doctors, even if you will see them, they can not help you. When even having everything, still you feel lost. You need to meet the Supreme Power. He is the one who can help in extreme cases that no one can handle.

    I appreciate your time.

  • Well said "Bible agrees that greatest need of life is not simply guidance but a relationship with GOD." Life is really full of uncertainty. Sometimes I feel discouraged about life but knowing that as long as we live there are certain things we do not have control over, so I'm ready to face the world.

  • Catarina

    The only thing that's certain in life is uncertainty. And most things in life are not important. If you start having negative thoughts you just have to stop yourself. Ask what the worst that can happen is, if what you are thinking is really true or just a figment of your imagination and so forth. Then you go back to being positive again. How you feel is up to you unless you have some kind of a mental problem and need to see a doctor.

  • You make a good point…whenever I feel a little bit off, i focus on what can or could bring me back to being myself.

  • Love for god makes us disciplined and strong. It is very tough to imagine a civilization which has lost connection with God. There is a supreme power (called God) which controls our lives and disconnection with the power will lead us to ashtray. nice thought, Andleeb

  • It is sometimes much harder to find yourself uneasy without really knowing the cause than it is to be upset about something specific. Personally, I try to take a rationale approach, going over in my mind all the things that could be the source of my agitation and just trying to put them in perspective.

  • I also believe in the power of gratitude and while I am not a religious person I value our relationship to nature and all living things. To be honest, it's pretty much impossible for me to be in a bad mood when I look at my puppy staring at me with her big brown eyes, wagging her tale and all she ever asks for in return is love and a little tummy rub now and then. 🙂

  • Always a good thing to remind ourselves that we are fortunate and that we a re all part of something much greater than ourselves.

    Quite motivational,but we are not Christians,hindu or any other religion related,so you shouldn't use word God.being a muslim say Allah,Allah have 99 qualities names,and there is not any God.Allah ka naam sirf Allah ha.let the others know abt ALLAH.
    God,bagaaw b ha,Jesus b ha..so make it clear who you really want to make connection with…..

  • Beautifully said Anna. It is so important, I think, to remember, that we are all connected by something greater than us. It doesn't matter what you call it, but I truly feel that we are…and we should be guided by that.

  • Hello Faisal

    Yes all of us must think about this and do some action and set up a connection with our God as He can guide us to best

  • beautifully written! no doubt ultimate satisfactions only lies in having a connection with HIM

  • Beautiful! makes me think for a moment that maybe I should seek GOD 🙂
