Book Of Life

It’s been a long time since I last posted something in English, I promised some of my English followers that I will post something new so here it is.  This morning, while I was thinking about books, my thoughts drifted into a sea in a windy day. I lost control of my thoughts so it took me to a journey without destination. Don’t blame me, for thoughts are like a horse, if you don’t guide the horse, it might take you to directions you never intended or expected. Anyways, when my horse is running wild I get a pleasing feeling, an itch that comes to me that nothing can cure but sound of keyboards.

Dear Reader, I was thinking, what if we all wrote a book! I think all of us can do that. Why don’t you try to stay in this world even after death! Don’t you wish to write something that will go beyond death! Our bodies may will be gone but our writing and books can stay in this world for a long time. You can do that by writing, now what to write is up to you. You may ask why do we have to write! Well I am just suggesting, when we are around people, we can keep our mouth shut and let our acts talk, but our words does have a voice to reach future generations. The greater the way you lived your life the greater is the voice of your words thus the greater it reaches. 

You can start writing daily journals, every day write a page, if you were committed by the end of the year you will have  365 pages. In one year you can write a volume of “Book Of Life”. Remember a page of writing is like a drop of water on a bowl, one day the bowl will be full, same thing for writing, just write page after another and then you will have your own book, not necessarily a book to be published. Imagine each day of your life is a page in your “Book Of Life” a book that will be read if not in this world then certainly hereafter. If you don’t like surprises and bad results in the hereafter start writing your own “Book Of Life” and share it with people around you and see what they say, if they said it’s a bad book then you can always change the coming days but in the hereafter you won't have that chance!

Usually when we write journals we write for ourselves, we don’t share it with others. I agree that it’s better to write for who you are not for who you want to appear for the public, but have you ever dared to share your journals without being fake! Forget all the writing rules, forget about publishing your book, forget about readers’ comments when you are writing but remember them after they read. Translate your day in words, you don’t have to crystallize your words. “Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book.” Share your life with your friends, let them read the book of your life! Then you can judge if your living a worthy life or a very boring one.

Don’t claim you don’t have anything to say, you have 24 hours a day, you have your special way to live these 24 hours. There are people waiting to be entertained by reading your life, don’t you want your grandsons know how you lived your days! Share with your friends the most interesting moments in this 24 hours, reflect what you learned, what you achieved, the challenges…etc your life through joy and  sorrow, let them judge if your life was used properly or it’s just another wasted soul. There is no perfect human being but their judgment is capable of driving you to be perfect.

Every writer's wish that he or she writes a book that makes him or her proud and attain loyal readers. Try to live your life as you are writing a book for your sons and grandsons. Do you want them to read a book where every page is the same or different pages but filled with shame? No reader is interested in such book and no sane writer wishes that. If you don’t like reading a book that it contents are repeated as you flip the page, why you are accepting to live a routine life, a life like most others, a life not living to your fullest, a life of lost opportunities! You came to this life to live out loud not to die without being noticed!

If the book of your life is boring remember that your life is boring, beautiful words can’t help a boring life to be entertaining and a beautiful fulfilled life can’t help but to produce a beautiful book. Live a life of purpose, if your life was not a life to be ashamed off I assure you writing your books and the words you use to translate your life into words is not something to be ashamed off either. If you don’t want your readers to think you lived your days naked then be sure to wear your pants , meaning, don’t fritter away the thing that differs you from animals.

I am suggesting rather than forcing you to write. However, I think it’s important that you know the benefits of writing, when you write you are actually creating permanent records where you can refer back to and learn from your mistakes to think more effectively and start a new day with a whole different attitude. If you don’t like to physically interact with people or you have issues in verbal communications then writing might be your best friend. “How do you know what you think until you see what you are saying”.

For me writing clarifies my mind, it not only gives me clarity, sort of “Peace Of Mind” but also offers opportunities for exploration, it gives me the guts to take risks. “Writing is a way to shape out visible and invisible, in myself as well as in the world”. As I said before, this “Book Of Life” helps you not be surprised in the day of judgment, and it also helps people to remember you after your death.


  1. Your use of words in this blog is very captivating and encourages me to write on my blog more often. Sometimes its hard to write down what your going through but at some point .. you need to spill put what you feel somwhere. Writing is like an escpae route for me and I think I will make it more of a habbit to keep posting. Thank you for the inspiration and loved the quotes throughout the post!

  2. This came right on its time! =D
    I'm starting a blog, but did not decide its content!
    Thank you for your encoraging words, and amazing blog

  3. this really what I was thinking of the past few months..

    get out of my mind :p

    I hope this changes someone life

  4. I will tell you a secret of my life...
    ... i hate speak in english because i love my mother language... is spanish and i'm bilingual in portugues... My english is very bad... but i can read your post. And i love write, im a fashion writer but are only words not life... i think: Is sad to live through a book... because is only a fantasy...
    i want write my real life like a story but i feel afraid. My life is very rich not me...
    my life born since 122 years old... yes, iam not a vampire hahaha!!!... i live in latin america but my true origen is the long story... arabics in Spain... catholics, Italy, war, my real surname... my blood now is strange. arabic + spanish for my father and too a little italian... for my mother italian and creole... american natives...
    i have to much old pics about my real family... and my life now... is a crazy adventure... i have got a problem... as is the end? i dont know... i can write in past and my present and i can use other names but... i feel afraid to the end... not death. I prefer to see my affections die because i hate the uncertainty... i know strange... i love the life... and always life challenge... and i need to write because it is the only way to be alive without uncertainties. I understad you...maybe you not because my english is trush!


  5. Like i said in spanish: En buena hora!!! is like a: Great, just a time!!! i needed read this post again and my answer.

    ... Not all people can write a book "bad news". But all people can write a diary for example or a blog...

    Thank's to Allah all people can't write a book because: Think just a minute!... (All people in the world?...)I preffer a people with culture because is the best heritage! Many books are a fake, all the great lie... because are many economic, social, political, religious interests for few a power people control the world... But if many people can write 4 example in a blog their views... and other many open their heads "the true essence" reaches more people than a book!

    Why not all people can write a book?

    Not is just a good culture about a topic. The writer need more than is. Need study like a pro many disciplines, not all can't, need travel, need live in first person the best and the worst, need talent, need courage... a horse is a GREAT START because is the spirit, the force and need investigate often for many years before the book and not all in the net. Is hard, but sure... with some knowledge many people can write about food or children's stories. And all is necessary...

    About my last answer... is true. My english suck! hahaha!!!

    and yeah... i've a little arabic blood in my veins and i know not all my complete family story. But is enough for me. My real surname borned in "Castilla la vieja" "Old Casttle" in Spain. This city don't exist more because for many wars now is mmm... Burgos, i don't sure... really! I spoke with the Castillian people for the net... mmm, with me was warm but i didn't know many things about this castlilian for examples "the stranger rituals" ... are to much catholics... but maybe a little dark... is my vision...
    There many years ago lived arabics vs catholics... all was a chaos. (But is all long story)

    But yestarday just a girl you know you saying me: "never rely on someone who you know, will just let you down"

    I don't know who is this woman and isn't important because... thanks to her. Now i've the title for my book... Sure, not is this "quote" hahaha!!! but this help to my head and the title is GREAT!

    ...And for example never i liked the books with fantastic literature like "the lord of the rings" but i read and i knowed now because investigated "the ring about this triology: IS TRUE" is the true story in the magic or other world... Well, i'll write my book alone like this style of literature but all very different to the rest!


  6. (...)

    ... i studied to much and i study all the time about literature. And "secrets books too" because when you will write need many resources and other views.

    When someome help me with whatever, always i reciprocated with a compliment because is my law! All back...

    The true: the pure and the dark live in this world and all borned equal... like the true life, i'll write with "fantasy" in other world... the true... like the: the lord of the rings, Harry Potter... Nothings is chace in this books. Inocent is when believe in this... and this is the point "the people believe in the story" like an adiction...

    Knowledge is acquired but the charisma, eloquence, the fantasy, the imagination and the "subjective" talent. NOT!!! is like a essence, was born!

    About my personal story: Never i'll write because is a like my secret bio...

    and... that's all... love this post and i say again: You're a great writer... and you are better when you wrote about you and not Islam... because the Quran is the best book but it was written... You're better when you write new texts like this or other because is like this horse... run because the world always is new for him... like a prims, remember that!?

    kisses and the best for your family!

    ps. Example: A few people understand me when i think or speak about any topic... because i've got my own opinion: "Not all people can has money and be rich. Because a poor man with many money like a gift if he don't have culture is nothing... he will buy a Ferrari, a great house, good clothes, but he will forget "INVEST THIS MONEY"... and this new rich man tomorrow will poor again"... The point: Simple the money in good hands help, the money in bad hands is just a lost, the money in good brain help like a miracle and in bad and intelligent brain is the end"...

    books and money... is to a few people...

    and i believe in you, FORCE!

    ps)Not is a SIN reply hahaha!!!

  7. Al-hamdulillah 'ala kool ahal AbdulAziz !!!

    first: I agree with my last comment

    second: Yeah i started with my book. Next august i'll travel to Europe because i'll need open my head... Nederland is the first destiny, "The sin city, Amsterdam" hahaha!!! but is very important will learn there. Is culture, pure culture with many miserable phenomena... then, there in Nederland... exist "the park of dreamer" all about elves and fairies... well and many more... i'll tell you!

    Third: My english such yet, my litle litle arabic too hahaha!Astaghfir Allah. I'll need understand well arabic, is because the Quran in spanish not are all literal and is important " the true essence" Subhan Allah.

    Fourth: i miss so much your posts, plz... back to blog. You are a excellent writer and you can be a real writer... i'll need your book. You are very wise and has got a great sense of humor!

    Fifth: in your twitter you wrote about your Ipad... well, Steve Jobs was a great man... listed his wise words: ( put CC in english because is importat every word... the last for me was great and i think in your feeling about the life... sure, he was different but wise like you)
