How is your Heart? How is your Soul? How are you?

Dear friend,

I think of you so often. I wish there was enough time in the day to connect with each of you, one-on-one. 

This blog and our newsletters are not marketing tools. You read our blog and receive our newsletters because at some point, we have crossed paths. We shook hands. We exchanged emails. There was a connection. A spark. A spark that I want to keep alive. 

So, As we draw curtains on 2020 I have just one question for you.  

How are you?

I ask that not in a frivolous conversation-starter way. But I’d like to know how you are really.  How are you feeling?  What is going well in your life?  What are you struggling with?  What have been your highs this year?  What caused you to shed tears?

I am not asking how many items are on your to-do list, nor asking how many items are in your inbox. I want to know how your heart is doing, at this very moment. 

Tell me. 

Tell me your heart is joyous, tell me your heart is aching, tell me your heart is sad, tell me your heart craves a human touch. Examine your own heart, explore your soul, and then tell me something about your heart and your soul.

Tell me you remember you are still a human being, not just a human doing. Tell me you’re more than just a machine, checking off items from your to-do list. Let’s have that conversation, that glance, that touch. Let it be a healing conversation, one filled with grace and presence.

Put your hand on my arm, look me in the eye and connect with me for one second. Tell me something about your heart and awaken my heart. Help me remember that I too am a full and complete human being, a human being who also craves a human touch.

There may not enough minutes in the day to truly deeply connect each other.  But let’s make a start.

So, how are you?  Please drop a comment below and tell me.  I really want to know.

    Thank you for the touching message. I am doing fine Alhamdullillah. But there is always an inkling in my heart that I can do better. That maybe I am made for greater things. But can’t get past the average things that I achieve. I am craving a human touch. Maybe there are not enough hours in a day to do everything I long to do! But the search is on! In shaa Allah some day I will have a feeling that things are going really well and I am putting the best effort for a best life. Maybe I need to have some more gratitude. Thank myself for the small things I have done. Jazak Allah khayr for asking ? How are you my friend and brother ?
    Ma’ assalaam
