It saved his life

In a restaurant in the West people objected to the presence of some Japanese. A certain man – he was called Laurens van der Post – then strongly objected to this racist behaviour and said to the owner of the restaurant that if the Japanese had to go that he would never visit the restaurant again and he would tell his friends to do the same.

It not only worked, but because of talking to these Japanese visitors he got interested in the Japanese culture and even learned the Japanese language. This saved his life years later.

He became a prisoner in a Japanese camp in Indonesia and because of his speaking Japanese he could survive as a much needed interpreter… In a restaurant in the West people objected to the presence of some Japanese.

    Place all your worries & anxieties at the feet of the Master and be free.

    B] The laboratory of your mind should not manufacture depressing thoughts for you.
    But instead, it should manufacturer for you lofty and sublime positive thoughts,which may make your life sublime.

    O Beloved,
    I am but a fool.
    Seeker loves you,
    Though you treat,
    Her cruel.

    O Beloved,
    Thee make me cry.
    But Thee cures me,
    When am about to die.

    O Beloved,
    There shan’t be another.
    Cause we love you so,
    Don’t ever leave us,
    Say you II never go.

    O Beloved,
    We always want you,
    Thee alone our Master,
    No matter what you do.

    O Beloved,
    May thy Prophet(PBUH),
    Be happy with you.
    Thou has a curing effect,
    Camouflaging Thyself,
    By means of a Jacket?

    Dank je.

    Salaams,

    You Saved this Life!

    He came, He Saw, He conquered,
    Creating a sparkle and splendor.
    I took Him to be a learned Professor,
    Didn’t recognise His power as a Healer.
    Healer of dreadful diseases,
    From Old to Latest Viruses.

    He came, He Saw, He conquered,
    This heart to an extent altered.
    His face so handsome how to describe,
    Mystic medicines He does prescribe.

    He came, He Saw, He conquered,
    His words and teachings need be honored.
    Could never find anyone like Him,
    In His love, I always swim.

    Wonder which Wine it is that He pours,
    How patiently I wait at His doors.
    He says “Waste not my precious time”,
    O Beloved can’t thee be called as mine?

    He came, He Saw, He conquered,
    He cures the ones whose days are numbered.
    Healer of dreadful diseases,
    From Old to Latest Viruses.

    Mansour was hanged for telling the Truth,
    Am I less of a devotee more of a sleuth?
    But really He came, He Saw, He conquered,
    Since the day He healed me, I feel stronger.

    Thank You!
