❝ If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love. ❞

George Orwell, 1984 (via alphabetarrangements)

Anonymous said: No sleep can be drawn from this weary night, why must one sleep if the day ahead holds no reason, when all it shall bring is another painful blow. Surrounded by my own shortcomings, so large it eclipses the sun, no light enters my perimeter, the dark is my only companion, story goes, those who mingle with the dark become it's servant, I was a servant from the beginning, serving people, freedom was a masterful lie, born into bondage, escape, where is the escape, is it the wind from the fall?

After reading this all that comes to mind is a quote from Paulo Coelho’s The Zahir: “Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose - and commit myself to - what is best for me.” 

I guess, we have the power to free ourselves or becoming slaves to the outside world. There is always a reason for tomorrow and only you can choose to free yourself or not, but that is a decision only you can make. 

I hope you find freedom and peace within yourself.

Hello,

Not sure exactly what state I am in at the moment. I am with my family so just as you said, the summer days have clouded my thoughts. 

Hope all is well with you :)

This is so fucking cute and I reblog it every time I see it and I can’t get over it.

❝ I know myself better than others [know me], and my Lord is more knowledgeable of me than myself. O God! Do not take me to task for what they say, and make me better than what they think of me, and forgive me for those sins which they are unaware of. ❞

 وَ قَالَ عليه السلام وَ مَدَحَهُ قَوْمٌ فِى وَجْهِهِ فَقَالَ: اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ أَعْلَمُ بِى مِنْ نَفْسِى وَ أَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِنَفْسِى مِنْهُمْ. اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنَا خَيْراً مِمَّا يَظُنُّونَ وَ اغْفِرْ لَنَا مَا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ .

In the past couple of days I have been seeing pictures of palms with “I Stand With Palestine” written on it and  a passport next to it. I am happy to see all these different people supporting Palestine even with the all the biased media and lack of media coverage on the truth. 

So I decided to do the same but without my passport, because I simply want to say that I am human and I stand with Palestine and I will stand with people of Palestine until they find peace, safety and equality. 

The reason for not adding my passport is because from the beginning of time, countries/borders have been the cause of many wars and disputes. 

So forget about countries forget about borders and put aside your abominable nationalism that usually gives you the feeling of superiority over others. 

We are humans and we must all stand with the humans of Palestine who have been facing an on going gruesome massacre.  

So, as a human, I STAND WITH PALESTINE.
