IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST GRACIOUS THE MOST MERCIFUL
Hey there! Alhamdulillah if you are still here, it means you have survived for the first, second, and the third part of this chapter! I seriously want to thank to all of you for your effort in reaching this far.
Now without further ado, let us begin...
Be Honest – Do Kindness – Forgive others.
Honesty is said to be like a virginity, once you lost it, it’s gone.
Kindness is like a diamond, the more light it gives, the prettier it is.
Forgiveness is said to be like unlocking the door to set someone free, and realizing that you are the prisoner.
Alright, moving on now to forgiving others.
I believe, as a human being, it’s extremely hard to forgive people especially to the one who has hurt us. Maybe, just maybe, the worst pain and heartbroken are felt when we are betrayed by the people we trust the most.
It feels like someone tears our heart apart to million pieces, then stabs every one of it with tiny needles, then crashes it with a hammer before burns it with 5 thousand decree Celsius. The pain is unbelievable and unbearable!
And do you know what will hurt you more than that?
For not be able to forgive people, especially to forgive yourself.
Now hold on, I know what all of you are thinking, why on earth do we have to forgive people that hurt us, that treated us like a thrash, which killed our soul, the one that made our life miserable?
My dear, we don’t forgive people for their sake. We forgive people to set ourselves free. Free from getting any more pain, free our mind from thinking something that hurt us, free our soul from the chain of hatred.
As mentioned by Max Lucado, forgiveness is like unlocking the door to set someone free, and realizing that YOU were the prisoner.
Now, the biggest question is why forgiveness will set us free?
Well it’s true that forgiveness can seem impossible for many people. It’s one of the biggest obstacles in our life.
Well to forgive means to forget your retribution and let go of your hatred. Do you know the only thing that can make hatred becomes harmful is the hater himself/herself? The moment you have negative thoughts about someone or hating someone, our body will emit a negative chemistry that can kill our humanity and our body. It will raise our blood pressure, harden our arteries, and lead to stroke, heart attacks, ulcer, black ache, neck ache, head ache and dementia. Then, comes the nausea, irritable bowel, eczema, asthma and many more! The list is endless, really. (Source: Dr. Sean Orford)
Remember this, we don’t forgive people to make they think that everything is okay and nothing has happened.
Things never are going okay, and that’s fine. But we forgive to set us free from heartbroken, I hope you guys realize that by forgiving we free ourselves from making more severe damage to our soul and mental. It’s like you hold on a tight rough rope and you grip it tightly, so tight that your hand got hurt. My point is sometimes the reason why we always feel sad and heartbroken and gloomy is because we don’t want to let it go.
Nothing hurt yourself more than you do because unforgiveness is like drinking poison but waiting for other person to die. You are just killing yourself. You are making yourself a prisoner and lock your body parts together to suffer for the rest of your life.
It was you that hurt yourself.
So now let it go, let the rope go. You don’t need to hurt yourself anymore. Unlock yourself. The only person your hatred damages is you! It gets worse. When we maintain negative attachments to the past it will eventually stop us from moving forward.
Now, do you have anyone that you need to forgive? Well, you don’t need to speak with them, just simply release yourself of all negative energy you may holding on to.
Just let go and be happy with your life in the present.
Lastly, you have to forgive yourself for being so negative. Forgive yourself for being so weak, accept the fact that we are human, and we are weak. Forgive yourself for hurting yourself, forgive yourself for crying a lot. Forgive yourself for making mistakes, because we are human and we make mistakes. Forgive ourselves for not be able to love everyone. We are not perfect, our love have limits.
I want you guys to know that it is okay for things to be not okay. It’s not your fault. But it does not mean we can do bad things and commit crimes. Forgive ourselves for something that we cannot change. Lord purposely made us a weak, imperfect creation. We are weak and we can’t run from it. Our heart is fragile and it’s okay. As the saying goes, we are perfectly imperfect.
Forgive others as how we want to be forgiven by the Lord.
And with that I want to conclude that the secret recipes to create your own happiness are BE HONEST, DO KINDNESS AND FORGIVE OTHERS. And these are just the main ingredients, there’re lots of ingredients that you have to add on DEPENDING on how you want your own happiness.
Each person has his/her own ways to be happy. Life is too short to feel sad. Are we going to waste our precious life that has been granted by the Lord with despair, sad and heartbroken? Cheer up! Rise up! Keep on running, keep moving forward!
In general, it’s all about choosing the right ingredients to create happiness. Life is all about making choices. We choose to feel happy or heartbroken. We choose to let our past hurt us or let it go. And beware of making choices because there will always be syaiton that will goad us to make wrong decisions. Be careful.
That’s all from me. I want to apologise for any mistake while delivering these recipes. I pray that God will bless you with HIS grace and bestow you with eternal healthiness and good life. I wish all of you including me, to be always happy, energetic and capable of loving each other. Happy baking with the ingredients and bon appetit. Stay happy :3
