"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." - Rumi.
Once you move from illusion to reality, you will realize that the fruit of living in the moment is reaching your soul, but if you lack prudence, you will fall directly into the desires that will rot your soul if you lack faith... To explain furthermore, Faith is food for your soul, similar to how if you look at an orange from the outside, you will find it hard and bitter, but once you get into the heart, you will discover how sweet and juicy it becomes. One cannot exist without the other, one is too bitter and the other is sweet but fragile and would rotten so fast without the hard shell protecting it. The hard shell is the discipline of one’s faith that you can practice and see perfectly in Ramadan, the stop from one’s desires from food to making love, and even goes deeper into stopping the anger and the bad treatment that we fall in all year. And if you look deeper into it, you would realize how beautiful the muscle of discipline is, once you work out it becomes strong and powerful that it helps you fly over your life into a safe place. Not only that, but once you train it, you begin to dive into the sweet flesh of the orange, the flesh of inner peace and self-love, the love you share with spirituality god or the universe and reflect back to your soul, replacing the bitter reality of illusion with the sweet actualization that nothing should make you happy as much as you would make yourself with discipline, self-love, and purity
You'd realize you just get what you let into this world, and eventually, you'd realize life is nothing more than... what you make it out to be.
