The Life I want

And into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul.

Me – Taken by a Friend

I have not written in a while because I have been enjoying life. I have been busy with living. I have been living from moment to moment. The person in the picture you see above is me. That is who I want to be 24/7. I am glad a friend of mine chose to step out of the moment and capture me in the moment. I have my hair doing its natural thing. I am in a relaxed state. I am connecting with people which I absolutely love. I am part of something real.

A couple of us decided to meet before sunrise and go to the desert to just enjoy the moment. It was amazing. I was totally disconnected from my life. Rather, I should say I was totally connected with life. I was just there in the present…aware of nothing else but what surrounds me. At that moment all that mattered to me was connecting with the people and the environment around me.

I feel like connecting with the environment is something that we as humans do not value enough. To be at one with nature. Without any distractions. Just totally present in the moment. Nature has a way of providing that for us. It has a way of demanding our attention and presence. It makes you forget. All you have to do in nature is exist, which is all you can do anyways. In return, nature will take over because well that is its nature. As confusing as that sounds, think about it.

This picture is going to be an inspiration for me. I am going to use that picture of myself to drive myself to get the life I want. I am going to push myself to live the way I want to. In order to live the life I want I need to setup ways of generating a passive income. Sadly, that is the world we live in. A world in which you cannot live without money. Money that enables you and allows you the freedom to live however you want.

In order to do so I need to discover what drives me. I need to figure out what I’m passionate about. That’s what life is all about, Experiences. Living life to its fullest potential and experiencing as many things as possible is what life is all about. That’s my take on it anyways.

There is one thing I am certain of; I want to be the Ammar you see in the picture. I will do whatever I can to achieve that lifestyle.

Surrender To Life

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

Complete Surrender. That is how I try to live my life, in complete surrender. I try to surrender to life. I try to surrender to love. I try to surrender to the universe. I try to surrender to the environment. I try to surrender to what may be happening to me.

As we live life we come across many things that affect us. We often find ourselves worrying about the future and contemplating on the past. While it is good to have a plan for the future, we tend to live in the thoughts of the future.

I went to a Tai Chi class for the first time. I have wanted to do Tai Chi since the day I found out that in the TV Show Avatar The Last Airbender, the movements for water bending is based off of the ancient Chinese martial arts of Tai Chi. I love water bending because of it’s healing properties so naturally when the opportunity came to try it I couldn’t say no.

Tai Chi is all about the breath. It’s about relaxing. It’s about letting go and flowing with what comes towards you. I just flowed, with whatever was happening. I was in a state of tranquillity. I was relaxed.

I was reminded by how I want to live my life, in complete surrender. I will only worry about the things within my control. The things that I do not control, do not warrant any attention or effort from me. We are not going to spend our time thinking about that. We are going to spend our time, energy and efforts on what we do control.

We are going to focus on the now.

I control my actions. I control my work ethic. I control me. I cannot control anything outside of me so why bother?

Does this person like me? Will I get this job? Will I do well in my exams? I do not have control over all the factors that will affect these decisions.

All I can do is control my own vibe and let things flow. Whatever will happen, will happen. I can only hope for the best.

We are constantly reacting to whatever happens to us. That’s all that we can do.

Relax. Breathe. Let go. Channel all of your energy into yourself. Enjoy Life. It’ll all be fine.

We got this far. Don’t worry. We’ll also get to where we need to go.
