There’s a word we use in Urdu and Punjabi; a word that I heard over and over again while growing up. “Sabr,” my mother would impatiently say standing over the stove, as I tugged at her sleeve because my tummy was rumbling. “Sabr”, my grandmother would smile knowingly...read more
What does it mean to have a Spiritual Master? What does it mean to be a humble disciple? These are two questions that had never even crossed my mind until I met my husband, the man that was the means for me to meet the one man that would absolutely transform my...read more
“You can do this. This is the year. This is your time.” “Oh, but you say that every year. You don’t have it in you. You can never complete anything. You think you can do this? No way. Not a chance in hell.” “Oh come on, don’t listen to her. You know that’s not the...read more
Last night, I ended up in the bathroom sobbing uncontrollably on the toilet for five minutes. The baby wouldn’t settle, I felt overwhelmingly exhausted and the pain from the haemorrhoids that had been torturing me for the past week was pretty much unbearable. Five...read more
Life isn’t just happening. The way life is happening for us is because of us.That can be a hard pill to swallow for those who believe they always draw the short straw; that the world is against them and that life is just so damn hard.But it doesn’t have to be that...read more
Mauritian sunshine streamed in through the kitchen windows, warming my body. Yet I still felt cold. I sat at the wooden table in the vast kitchen that was way too big for me, yet too small to house the blanket of darkness that enveloped me, and I looked down into my...read more
The Awakening Shock My Sheikh (spiritual master and my spiritual guide) often speaks of the ‘awakening shock’. A moment in time or a series of separate yet interlinked occasions where a human being’s entire world, or how they knew it to be, is rocked so hard that...read more
Gods whispers reached me on the wind. “Do you trust me?” I heard His voice loud and clear; it rang through my racing heart, coursed it’s way through my veins, I felt it run up and down the steps of my spine and somehow, I knew that it was ringing out from...read more
It’s not the first time in my life I’ve been called a wuss. There was the time when my circle of friends at the time, over ten years ago now, poked fun at the fact that I wasn’t one to raise my fists and get in a fight when it came to resolving conflicts. And...read more
I smiled at you. You turned your head and looked away. My three-year-old daughter pointed to your probably-three-year-old son, and squealed excitedly, “Look, Mama, look! He got teddy bear! He got teddy bear, like me!” You glanced at us, looked extremely awkward,...read more
I’m in a weird place right now, but that’s to be expected I guess. Myself and the other three members of my little family are still battling the flu (this whole Christmas period has been a huge blur, including my birthday 😣); we’re currently feeling the after...read more
In just over 24 hours, I’ll be turning 31. And I’m sitting here alone, with a Bollywood movie on in the background, Christmas tree lights twinkling away in the corner, full of a newly acquired cold, while my two children and husband sleep in their beds.While...read more
Some days I feel like I’m in a dream, watching myself going through the motions of each day, knowing that even though I am in this world, I am not of it; I’m just passing through and soon enough, I will be returning elsewhere. Other days, I feel ensnared by the...read more
Hi, I’m Sabah – a writer, artist and journalist, who believes deeply in the saying
“be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality, personal development, self-growth and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.
I write about my own life and experiences, social problems and global issues as well as things that make life more beautiful for me – such as art, music and so much more.
So basically, this is me and my varied blog – striving every single day to become the change that I wish to see to help make our world a brighter, happier and safer place for us all. Join me?
