Best Therapy

(gambar hiasan : taken at Bukit Tinggi, Pahang on Feb 2006)

What you always do when you are feeling down, heartbroken or when you just feel the whole world are against you?This kind of feelings always occur when you had a lot of problems, conflicts or crisis that reach your limit until you feel like run away to the farthest part of world and hide yourself.In easier words, this situation is often referred as stressed or tensed, or whatever you used to call it.

My favourite therapies of overcoming stress are normally to play either two games : bowling or squasy.I will abruptly asked my willing friends : `Jom main squasy/bowling harini ' and some of them will eventually understand, I need to clear off something in my mind.When I am in campus,usually I played squasy to release the stress but during internship, of course the best option is bowling since the bowl lane is just five minutes downtown.Do you notice the similarities between those two games? Yup, `pukul/ baling sekuat hati'.Hahaha maybe you all can guess what type of person am I, who found satisfaction in throwing and smashing balls (rebellious? expressive? you make the guess ;P).

But I made an amazing discovery myself, about several years ago.I found the easiest, quickest or perhaps the best therapy that always there, only I was too ignorant to notice it.The best therapy so far, which is guaranteed (insya Allah) effective, is no other than the Quran verses themselves.Try it, it surely works!As Allah had promised in his book of wisdom :

Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!
(Ar-Ra'd, verse 28)

Which means when you are stressed out or tensed for having tough luck and miserable life, just take your wudhu' and recite or read the holy Al Quran.You will be amazed on how the positive energy flows to you as the words in the kitabullah is not from a human- those are sacred words came from the Most Almighty.Thus it make sense, right, to feel relieved as we are comforted by our own creator- the owner of the whole universe.Among my all-time favourite verse is non other than the famous Al Imran : 139:

Faint not nor grieve, for ye will overcome them if ye are (indeed) believers.
"janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati padahal kamulah org2 yg paling tinggi darjatnya, jika kamu org2 yg beriman"

How sweet!

I definitely agree with this. Everyone needs to have a productive outlet of some type when the world starts getting us down. Beyond that, looking for help and inspiration from above can lift even the heaviest of troubles. It is so true that we can do anything if we just keep our priorities straight and keep the faith. Sometimes that's easier said than done, but it is always possible
