Motivational blog, which has so much to offer, experience, thoughts, actions, routes, it actually reveals the good and the bad of life, and makes living life worth while.I especially admire the self-struggle of Stephen and his long-distance running achievements across America

Rebekka’s blog has beautiful quotes, philosophies about life, and we also have alot in common, like social criticism,music and books 🙂 It has pretty images and brief posts which kick start your thoughts positively.Make my day whenever i read her blog!

5.http://paradoxicalwisdom.wordpress.com/:

Full of wisdom,and deep thoughts, this blog was a treat for me to have stumbled upon.I find alot of similarities in the way the posts are written and formatted with my own posts, but of course Maher has written it with much more knowledge, experience and expertise about life and it’s various shades.I always have alot to learn from this blog.

6.http://clearskiesbluewater.wordpress.com/:

Leigh’s blog is an insight to revealing life’s true meanings and purpose, a quest we all are on, but most are unsuccessful.I love her attitude towards life as she expresses it in her posts, her opinions about all the different dimensions of life.What really inclines me towards her posts is that she isn’t afraid to say and support the truth, which takes courage.

7.http://zendictive.wordpress.com/:

I can easily say that this is the blog which i don’t wanna miss reading.Art’s beautiful quote illustrations enhancing the beautiful short inspiring stories, which teach us quite a lot about our self as well as our thoughts and emotions and how to make the maximum from them.It is full of lessons of life, acquired after years of experience, and full of useful morals.The posts are written painstakingly and definitely deserve appreciation.

A beautiful piece of Maulana Jallaluddin Rumi’s writings, i post with many thanks to Subhan Zain, a wonderfully talented blogger:

Subhan Zein

*

*

I Am A Sculptor

*

*

I am a sculptor, a molder of form.

In every moment I shape an idol.

But then, in front of you, I melt them down

*

I can rouse a hundred forms

and fill them with spirit,

but when I look into your face,

I want to throw them in the fire.

*

My souls spills into yours and is blended.

Because my soul has absorbed your fragrance,

I cherish it.

*

Every drop of blood I spill

informs the earth,

I merge with my Beloved

when I participate in love.

*

In this house of mud and water,

my heart has fallen to ruins.

*

Enter this house, my Love, or let me leave.

*

*

The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi
