I regret every time I eat until my stomach is full.
It saps my energy.
I can’t think clearly.
The most productive thing to do then is low IQ work or just sleep.
As someone who eats food fast, I realize how I quickly become full without even realizing it.
This is a simple but constant reminder I give myself.
When I eat slowly, and deliberately leave space, I get energy and focus to do meaningful work.
Try it! 🙂
What is humility?
I used to think to be humble you have to put yourself down, privately and publicly. It’s something that you do by sharing your shortcomings in conversations.
However on further reflection, it seems by criticizing yourself you’re trying to show people how “humble” you are.
Is that really humility? It seems like pride disguised as humility.
It reminds of a quote I once read: “Don’t act so humble; you not that great.”
A man who overtly criticizes himself, is secretly praising himself. ~ Imam Ali
So what is humility?
I don’t think we need to “be humble.” Humility is a natural result of recognizing the truth, that God is the originator of all good. We merely reflect God’s attributes.
Humility will naturally arise as a way of life, by bringing this truth in our awareness.
Beyond our differences of nationality, looks, culture & beliefs we are all related to each other at the level of our soul.
And when the purpose & values of two friends are aligned, it’s like they are a single soul operating in two different bodies.
Two friends are a single soul, divided between different bodies. ~ Imam Ali
I’m trying out something new by creating images from inspiring quotes. Have a look…
God revealed unto Prophet David, “I put wealth in contentment, while they see it in abundance of wealth but do not find it.”
