Jalani Hidup Berat

Gabrielle menemukan kembali jalan spiritualnya setelah beberapa tahun beradu ego dengan dirinya sendiri. Diakui Gabrielle tahun ini menjadi momen tersulit dalam hidupnya. Dia merasa jalan hidupnya begitu terjal. 

“ Tahun ini adalah salah satu tahun yang paling sulit dalam hidup saya. Semua tantangan hidup telah membawa saya sampai ke titik ini. Jalan saya jauh dari mudah. Saya membawa banyak kemarahan dalam hati."

Di tengah kekecewaan tersebut, Gabrielle selalu mempertanyakan kesulitan yang dialami kepada Sang Pencipta. Bahkan dia merasa Tuhan tidak adil telah memperlakukannya seperti itu.

" Saya selalu berkata kepada Tuhan, “ Mengapa saya? Sampai akhirnya saya sampai pada kesimpulan bahwa semuanya memiliki hikmah. Bahkan penderitaan saya adalah sebuah hadiah,” tulisnya dalam akun instagramnya.

Temukan Kedamaian Dalam Islam

Untuk menemukan jalan spritual yang mendalam, Gabrielle banyak mengeksplorasi diri. Keingintahuan dan rasa penarasan membuatnya semakin yakin. 

Gabrielle memulai perjalanan ke Pakistan sebagai awal pencarian kedamaian dalam dirinya. Ia memutuskan untuk menghilangkan segala ego dan rasa sakit hatinya. Namun, hal luar biasa justru ia temukan selama berada di Pakistan.

Kebaikan dan kerendahan hati penduduk Pakistan, membuatnya semakin mencari informasi lebih dalam tentang negara itu. Dan ia mendapatkan sebuah kesimpulan tentang bagaimana Islam adalah agama yang damai. Berbanding terbalik dari apa yang ia ketahui selama ini tentang Pakistan.

“ Seperti semua agama, ada banyak interpretasi. Tapi, intinya, makna Islam yang sebenarnya, adalah perdamaian dan cinta. Bagi saya, secara teknis saya sudah menjadi Muslim. Syahadat pada dasarnya adalah dedikasi ulang hidup saya pada jalan keesaan menuju pengabdian kepada Tuhan,” tulisnya lagi.

I CONVERTED to ISLAM?? . What lead me to this Big decision? . As I mentioned previously, this last year was one of the hardest in my life, and all life’s challenges have led me to this point here and now. From a young child, I’ve always had a unique connection with creation and special relationship to God. My path was far from easy and I carried a lot of anger in my heart from a lifetime of pain, always begging God, why me? Until ultimately coming to the conclusion that all is meant to be, and even my suffering is a gift. . Never resonating with what I was brought up with, I denounced my religion 4 years ago, going down a deep path of spiritual discovery.Exploration of self, and the great Divine. I never let go the sight of the Creator, in fact, my curiosity and connection only grew stronger. Now no longer dictated by fear, I was able to fully explore this righteous path. . As time passed, the more I experienced, the more I witnessed the true nature and calling for my life. I wanted to be free. Free of the pain and shackles that was hell. Liberation from the anger, hurt and misalignment. I wanted peace in my heart, forgiveness and the most profound connection with all. And thus started my journey. . The universe brought me to Pakistan, not only to challenge myself to let go of the last remaining traces of pain and ego, but also to show me the way. . Through kindness,& humbled grace of the people I met along my pilgrimage, inspired my heart to seek further. Living in a Muslim country for 10 + years and traveling extensively through these regions, I observed one thing; Peace. A kind of peace that one can only dream of having in their hearts. . Unfortunately Islam is one of the most misinterpreted and criticized religions world wide. And like all religions, there are many interpretations. But, the core of it, the true meaning of Islam, is PEACE, LOVE & ONENESS. It’s not a religion, but a way of life. The life of humanity, humility and Love. . For me, I was already technically a “Muslim”. My Shahada was basically a re-dedication of my life to the path of Oneness, connection and Peace through the devotion of God.

**FULL VIDEO LINK IN BIO This is my SHAHADA, where one testifies that they believe in the One true God, and that Prophet Muhammad PBUH- is a messenger of God. This can be done in public, with people, or even whispered quietly to yourself on your own. It is with the intention in your heart that you know what you are saying and that you wholeheartedly want to follow this path. . I feel its so important to share the truth that is Islam, which is peace, love and oneness. It is one of the most critized, osterzied, and misunderstood religions worldwide from both non Muslims AND Muslims! As in any religion, there are many interpretations and personal views/sects, which is not the true teachings of God, this is Human flaw. And its taking away from the true essence of God and Humanity, which is oneness, instead its creating division. I've been on a deep spiritual path now for many years, and after spending so many years in a Muslim country, especially after traveling Pakistan, I learnt so much. So much about my own self, God and what Islam really is- FROM THE FIRST HAND PERSPECTIVE. YES, maybe HUMANS do bad things in the name a religion-but it’s not fair to condemn and judge an entire nation of people because of some bad choices. find your own truth by seeking Divine guidance and go deep within. Find the real truth before making presumptions. The world is full of HATE, FEAR, INTOLERANCE, PAIN, and everyone wants to blame someone else. BUT, what we fail to see is. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. No matter what we believe. let's all be here to support eachother. And that certainly does not mean telling someone HOW to practice or beleive. A path is a special path between you and GOD, no one can judge or tell you what to do. step by step, by learning a and growing you will find your truth. This is mine :) . Big thanks to @baydaartravels for helping facilitate this. . And biggest thanks to @adeelamer who is the greatest source of inspiration for me ???? always supporting me to be the best version of myself
