Assalamu alaykom everyone,
In many of our lives we just exist. We don’t really live. We simply exist. We wake up, prepare for work, and do our daily routine. We don’t really think about the sadness of such a life. We don’t really think about our lives in a broader sense. We sometimes get so accustomed to just doing as we do and not exploring outside of our daily routines. What does this mean? Why is this a bad thing?
Well, I can’t answer that for anyone. We can only answer this for ourselves. This is a philosophical question that one would have to ask themselves. We sometimes think about society’s expectations and then define ourselves according to that. How cruel of ourselves to think that we are entities that should only confine themselves to a box? We are beautiful. We are powerful. We are magnificent. We are distinct amidst other creations. We are human-beings. We have the beautiful of reasoning and language. What are we doing simply aiming for the stars when we can aim for the infinite?
