6 Ramadan 2012: Perhaps it is for the Best

When all’s said and done, all roads lead to the same end. So  it’s not so much which road you take, as how you take it. – Charles de Lint

Today we were reminded of a very important aspect of inner peace, which is to accept and be thankful for what is ordained. We are talking about plans that change, outcomes that are not as expected, or situations we least expect.

We found that it is harder to fight destiny than it is to accept it and believing that there is someone out there who takes care of our best interests brings along with it calmness and relaxation better than any “spa” can give. We are not saying that one should not have goals or dreams or plans, however, once these things are in place and each step is taken with full determination and clear strategy, one must believe that whatever the outcome, it is the best outcome in that situation which is linked to some other outcome or matter later on in one’s life or hereafter that is unimaginably more worthy than the task at hand or that which is desired.

We ask god to help us focus and see every situation to be the best situation that we are in and always think of “la3alo khair” … “لعله خير” … “perhaps it is for the best” … in all situations we face and plans that change.

One last word, check out our latest addition to our “inspiration” list … they too, had plans change leading them to the setup of initiatives that they never imagined they would run one day.
