    The Spiritual Dynamics of Life & Islam

    Before I was into Islam, I was into reading a lot of about psychology and spirituality.

    I read everything from conventional psychologist such as Sigmund Freud and my favourite psychologist Fredrick Nietzsche

    To even reading about Eastern Spiritual Philosophisers with resources coming from Osho and Alan Watts

    It seem like they understood fundamental truths about the universe

    Patterns that I could correlate in my own life.

    I eager to learn to these truths hoping they would resolve a deep seat flaw within my personality.

    At the time I didn't recognise it, but now, looking back I had (what Nietzsche describes as):

    A high ‘Will to Power'

    I wasn't satisfied with a simple existence

    I desired power over myself and others

    Nietzsche explains that this is a natural desire in human beings.

    But I know in my youth I felt this intensely.

    Unfortunately I had a high will to Power but an extremely low self-disciple and focus.

    So when being a man with an attitude of ‘Julius Caesar or Nothing'

    It was no surprise looking back that I achieved nothing.

    Throughout this time, I would ponder why I was like this and other men weren't

    Initially I began to attribute my characteristic to being simply inferior

    There was talk within the male community online and still is same talks today

    About some men being ‘alpha' males

    And some men being ‘beta' males

    Alpha males had a natural ability to succeed at life, work, money, women

    And Beta males were simply inept at everything and usually crushed by the cruel world forcing their genetics to die out

    I wondered how I could change this paradigm

    Was there a way to simple change your character to a Alpha male?

    After convectional male advice failed me (You know the generic crap: Improve your Body Language, Talk in a Deep Voice, Don't eat too much Ice cream)

    I began to read more from Science and Eastern Philosophy

    As you may know Science explains that we are made up of atoms

    Atoms vibrating specially

    We are a vibration of Atoms

    And this vibration is categorised by its Frequency

    Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta…etc

    Ah ha! thats its I told myself, my atoms must be operating at the Beta Wave Frequency

    And it made sense on a real life observation basis

    Looking at the beta frequency, the wavelengths had high peaks and low troughs.

    It was erratic and chaotic

    This was like my life, I had anxiety some days, I was addicted to smoking, I had no focus, I was a mess, I was definitely beta, this was MY frequency

    Then I looked at the alpha frequency, the wavelengths had smooth peaks and trough, it was calmer and in control.

    ‘Damn' I thought

    That's the frequency I want to be at.

    That's the alpha frequency; the type of frequency that allows you go into sales meetings and close deals

    Walk into nightclub and charm all the beautiful women without effort.

    It was all done to a science and the vibration of atoms within us

    So I worked on changing my vibration

    That is where Eastern Philosophy comes in

    Eastern Philosophy talks a lot about this.

    They mention how you change your vibration by simply meditating, breathing deeply, releasing your ‘chakras'

    So I did all that, I woke up early each morning and meditated for half n hour..

    Breath deeply, tried yoga, tried drinking apple cider vinger…

    (These thoughts led by Elliot Hulse with his Bio-energetic Breathing and Dynamic Meditation by Osho)

    I tried it all… And did it work?

    Kinda not really….

    I would feel some difference and sometimes I could walk into a crowd and instantly connect with people

    But half the time, I wouldn't

    Even feeling too drained to keep going with these spiritual exercises

    The amount of work required for the payoff was not worth it.

    After awhile I gave up on achieving greatness and fell into a terrible nihilism and depression.

    My will to Power diminished to ZERO

    And to this day I have no desire or care about ‘gaining power'

    But only wish to overcome myself

    That's where religion comes in

    I found a new hope in turning towards god

    First Christianity and then later Islam

    Something about these practices removed my nihilism and gave me a new sense of meaning a purpose.

    Even though there is no wordy possession that I wish to gain…

    Looking back I think I was always into just seeking the truth

    Before I had elements of the truth and not the complete truth

    Is it true that we are a vibration of atoms? Yes I believe its true

    Is it true that we can change our vibration? Yes and No

    Yes we have to ability to change our vibration but….

    No we don't have the power too. (Some people have a fraction of will power, but even thats a mercy from God)

    Only God has the power to change us completely.

    You see most of us are living in the Beta wavelength frequency.

    Without god we all live with feelings of emptiness, anxiety and meaningless

    And we try to escape that pain with pleasure

    The more we try to escape that pain ourselves

    The higher our frequency becomes

    The more chaotic and out of control and anxious we feel

    Whats worse is its a roller-coaster ride that is extremely hard to get off

    Some people have being doing it for such a long time

    They've pushed the limits of their wavelength peaks

    With substance abuse such as alcohol or drugs

    Your Frequency throughout the Day when succumb to Gratification

    We don't have the power to simply switch

    But the truth is that God has the power

    God has the power to change your frequency to calm, peace and order

    All you have to do is submit to him:

    -Become his servant -Ask for forgiveness -Ask for that vibration

    And that exactly what we do in Islam

    This is the opening words of prayer, it is called Surat Al-Fatiha

    بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ‎ (Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm) 2. الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ‎ (Al ḥamdu lillāhi rabbi l-’ālamīn) 3. الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ‎ (Ar raḥmāni r-raḥīm) 4. مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ‎ (Māliki yawmi d-dīn) 5. إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ‎ (Iyyāka na’budu wa iyyāka nasta’īn) 6. اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ‎ (Ihdinā ṣ-ṣirāṭ al-mustaqīm) 7. صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ‎ (Ṣirāṭ al lazi na an’amta ‘alayhim, ġayril maġḍūbi ‘alayhim walāḍ ḍāllīn)

    this is the English interpretation

    1 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. 2 Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, 3 The Beneficent, the Merciful. 4 Master of the Day of Judgment, 5 Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. 6 Show us the straight line, 7 The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.
    The frequency you live during the Day when you are in constant remembrance of God

    The straight line, is the vibration of peace and order

    The straight line, is feeling of calmness and control

    The straight line is the truth and God
