A box only stays empty, when you allow it to stay empty. The box will not fill itself up, unless you open it up and put things inside. Never allow the negativity in your life to be apart of your livelihood everyday or as long as possible. Things change as long as you make it possible. Having a negative thought, will only bring negativity in your life and will not change your way of thinking or your mood. Sometimes people can’t accept the decree of Allah, so they drag themselves into this hole of negativity believing it is only bad and bad is it. Allah does say in the Qur’an, in Surah Al-Baqarah: But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not. This should empower the believer, the Muslim or Non Muslim, that Allah knows and whatever is decreed by Allah will happen and it will only for the good of humanity and only which is to be good for you. Allah does not want a believer to be in hardship or to struggle but only we perceive these things as bad.
Open the box with hopefulness, with positivity, with such belief that only good can come out of it and only good will prevail and whatever is to happen, will be good. Only to test my eman (faith) as a believer. Am I to go closer to Allah or to go further away? Be positive and go closer to Allah, as the means for everything in our lives, that happen, is to bring us closer to Allah, to worship Him alone. Love can be given but it depends how much of that love and understanding that person has of Qur’an and the Sunnah. How to love according to the Qur’an and how to love according to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace & Blessings Be Upon Him) and how he treated not just his wives but the people around him at the time.
Hold onto the positive in your life, as it will help you climb in the difficult stages in life. A negative thought will only drag you down. You are as powerful as you allow your mind to be. So don’t believe you are not powerful. That you are not able to to fulfill that emptiness or that empty box. Be hopeful and smile. The decree of Allah is always going to be good. Always, always, think positive.
