For 20 minutes every morning, clear your mind and heal your soul, close your eyes…
Meditation: In the name of God, the most gracious the most merciful. God is great. From you I come and to You I will return.
Breathing in, I give everything- soul, mind, body, heart, life- to God.
Breathing out, I am the peace, light and love of God, and the powerful intelligent energy of the Universe.
I am the observer and witness of the present moment, which is my home and best friend.
I sit without expectations: I openly and lovingly welcome and embrace any thoughts, emotions, sensations, reactions or distractions to come and pass through me to reveal the layers to my soul.
Breathing deeply in through my nose, and exhaling out through my mouth, I relax my entire body from head to toe.
I smile- with my eyes and lips, my heart and liver, my legs and whole body- I smile.
I close the mind door and open the heart window to be still and know, I Am.
I am light, I take light, I seek light, I spread light.
Everything I will mention is worldly, but only my soul is eternal, so I take light and do everything with laughter because nothing is as serious as it seems.
I am rooted comfortably in the seat of presence, and observe my life as my art and masterpiece, my vacation and my adventure. I am not attached to the world.
I am not sad about the past or worried about the future, I simply stay centered and focus on the positive of what matters the most.
Each day I try my best in every way, and then I let go and let God and trust the intelligent and kind Universe.
This is the only moment there ever is, and everything in this moment is exactly as it should be.

I am thankful for my healthy working mind and brain. My mind creates my Self and life.
I am thankful for my subconscious mind of dream and emotional intelligence.
My emotions are of my mind. Sadness due to loss of my family, distance from my extended family and friends, and my heartbreaks, but it is the portal to the source within. Sadness is a gentle emotion, which brings empathy and compassion and holds hands with love. I have past, present and future love of all people, and Divine Love.
My emotions of worry of the future and if/how I will ever have my greatest dreams, is simply reminding me of what is important and guiding my actions. I am thankful to have hope, freedom, and opportunities. My faith is greater than my fear.
Most of the time overall, I am happy. My life is joyous, here and now.
My emotions are sent from the Universe with love, and from my subconscious to guide me. They are my emotions and from a distance, so I love them and let them be.
I am centered in my soul and clear in my meditation, mind/emotions, visualization/gratitude, Dua/prayers, journal/blog, phone calendar/notes and messages, so I can put my mind aside.

My prayers for my mother, for her mind, heart, health, love and protection.
My prayers for my extended family on both sides who are my backbone and support.
I am thankful for my best friends (5), for whom I pray and hope to remain in touch with.
I am thankful for my partner, who came to me as an Angel. Everyone has a past and no one is perfect but we are perfect for each other spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and our lifestyles. A partner to whom I feel connected to and loved by, our 2-3 children, his family and mine becoming one, our friends and creating our own little community and home.
I am grateful for this love and hope, and spread it with patience, tolerance, compassion and understanding, towards my past communities from whom I eat the fish and spit out the bones but know that they come and go, my current city community, my world-wide Ismailis and social media, my acquaintances and strangers, plants and animals, Mother Nature and her resources…I am one with all.
I am the umbrella of love, which is the center and the essence of life. It is my meaning and purpose to connect with and love others.
I express this purpose of using my presence, education and health and how I can actively do my part to use my knowledge of current issues to make a difference in society and bring love and light and to uplift others during times of struggle.
My purpose is to love, without judgments, fear, expectations or attachments.
Everything in my life and resume has led to being the Owner of Spirit Life which is my purpose.

I prioritize balance and make time for hobbies I am passionate about. This includes my creative job, self intake of art, music, entertainment, etc., and traveling adventures.
I accept that there is negativity in myself, others and the world. Darkness I cannot control, my own flaws and mistakes because every aspect can always be better, the pain others have caused me, each other and themselves, due to unconsciousness.
I accept that life has always had problems and it always will, because life is made up of problems and struggle is the meaning of life, but it is man’s duty and should be his joy.
