| Intentions |
The person you think of as “yourself” exists only for you, and even “you” don’t really know who that is. Every person you meet, have a relationship with or make eye contact on the street with creates a version of you in their heads......... - There are a thousand different versions of yourself out there. A “you” exists in each version, and yet your “you”, yourself, isn’t really “someone” at all.
I read this yesterday and I cant stop thinking about how mind blowing this is. I’ve been struggling with putting myself out there for people to see me the way I see myself. Revisiting every action, every word, every intention and thinking over and over and over again about why can’t they just get it right?
Intentions; I question my intentions almost every second, be it in studying, showing love to the people around me, or even just posting anything on instagram. It’s so hard controlling your inner desires, but im always trying.
Im constantly asking myself what is the purpose of posting anything on instagram? Am I looking for attention? Is it truly to benefit those who take the time to read my captions?
My intentions/thoughts were disturbed.
Yes I want to share everything I know/read/come across/insight for the purpose of benefit to me and others. With absolutely zero intention for any outcome/praise.
•Problem? - I feel like my original account will disturb this intention.
•Solution? - I decided to start a new page where I can post every insight every thought, excerpts from books without an inner struggle of whether this is purely for God or not.
It would be such an honor having you read my captions and commenting your own insight.
عن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول(إنما الأعمال بالنيات وإنما لكل امرئ ما نوى فمن كانت هجرته إلى الله ورسوله فهجرته إلى الله ورسوله ومن كانت هجرته لدنيا يصيبها أو امرأة ينكحها فهجرته إلى ما هاجر إليه) متفق عليه.
