JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Author Safiullah shares a selection of insights and reflections that have changed his life in his inspirational new book, “Into the Heart of Reality: The Inner Voice” (published by AuthorHouse).
“In order to change our lives we need to look deep within ourselves,” Safiullah writes.
An excerpt from “Into the Heart of Reality”:
“The Desire - The more you desire the more you want; you feed the desire and it feeds you and if you are in love with it, for it consumes you. It has no face, it is a force, a raging one that does not distinguish between the high and the low. Seemingly benign it grows a growth that cannot be contained, if you keep watering it day in day out. It is the cancer of the soul. For the one who mistakes a need in its place will have a price to pay, a high one at that. If you stick to your organic needs then you will be satisfied and if you stick to wants then it makes you expand and if you stick to desires then you burst out of your wits, for it becomes your silent master, which teaches you otherwise and leads you to the loss of your body and mind.”
