Simplicity and Balance

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

― Confucius (Chinese Philosopher and teacher)

“The BALANCE is achieved through maintaining RIGHTEOUSNESS. Once righteousness, as dictated by God in His scripture, is observed, we automatically use our dynamics, ambitions and qualities to progress in this life and earn the high ranks of the Hereafter. We experience and enjoy the lawful pleasures of this world within and around us while we are steadily progressing on the straight path of God. There are no limitations. The race is on. Competition is lawful. However, RIGHTEOUSNESS is the only force to keep us on track, in perfect BALANCE, and the reverent who persistently pursue righteousness are the only ultimate winners.”

“Who has forbidden the adornment which God has brought forth for His creatures or the good things from among the means of sustenance?’ Say: ‘These are for the enjoyment of the believers in this world, and shall be exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection.’ Thus do We clearly expound Our revelations for those who have knowledge.”

-Al – A’raf or The Heights, Qur’an 7:32
