DON’T BE A TARGET

This lecture (delivered on 29 October 2022) takes a metaphorical look at the arrow, the shield, and the target as concepts in self-development, and holding on to the shield of Allah’s protection against spiritual arrows of affliction. Enjoy this symbolic exposition on being focused, and responsible, building self-confidence, and giving our offspring the sprint to start life with a dart. Be either an arrow or a shield, or else you’ll be a target! Listen, learn and think deeply as you edit your Youniverse! For more lectures and counseling services, visit: www.abdulfattahadeyemi.com

THE AYYUB IN YOU!

The story of Ayyub explores a particular kind of ordeal in which the pain seems both inexplicable and fruitless—it has nothing to do with any sin you must have committed, It doesn’t resemble a particular spiritual growth and not the type endured in acts of worship. It is neither a persecution by enemies nor a struggle for mentorship to find direction in life. However, it is a unique type of trial that is tailor-made for you. The good news is that this model of Ayyub-like suffering always has a triumphant ending! Listen, learn and think deeply about the Ayyub in you as you edit your Youniverse!

SECRET OF SUCCESS AT HOME

Synergetic relationships can be useful measures of an ecosystem’s health, same as in maintaining sanity in marriage. This lecture (delivered on the 8, October 2022) summarizes it all with symbolic references from the Qur’an and symbiotic inferences from nature. The secret of success at home can be found in the pairing: what we have combined, joined, or coupled. Are we trying to bind what does not cling?

YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE?

As good as money is, what does it symbolize? Why bother accumulating cash and spending it to gather thingy-things that we shall still leave behind for others? Can we win the game of life when we live solely to pursue money at the expense of quality time with our families? Do we live to work, or do we work to live? How can we achieve a work-life balance such that we can have both? This lecture, delivered on 15 October 2022, is a philosophical attempt to explain how we can make money and meaning simultaneously.

WHERE IS MONEY?

This lecture (delivered on the 18, June, 2016) is a philosophical approach to our beliefs about money. It examines how we think about it, how we handle it, where we should look for it and what are the things that influence our perceptions of money. Is having money a matter of luck, choice, effort, or a spiritual thing? Listen, learn, and laugh as you edit your Youniverse! (www.abdulfattahadeyemi.com)

FALL IN LOVE OR STAND IN LOVE?

The word "love" can have a variety of related but distinct meanings and types, in different contexts. A similitude of marital love is that of a gardener and his flower garden. He nurtures the flower with utmost respect, regard, care, love and mercy. In this sense, love is ultimately not just a feeling, but a commitment to the relationship. This lecture, (delivered on the 19 February, 2022) recommends that it is better to stand in love, than fall in love. Listen, learn and laugh as you edit your Youniverse!

WHO SPOILED MY MOOD?

Moods have essential connections with our mental and physical well-being. Moods can affect how you perceive, interpret, judge, and translate the world around you, and can also direct your behaviour. Bad moods are connected with depression, anxiety, aggression, poor self-esteem, physiological stress, and a decrease in sexual arousal. A moody person may be going through a difficult stage in their lives; they may be exhausted, ill, chronically worried, or lacking what they need in terms of love, sleep, challenge, or security. But there is another type of moodiness; that of the bully, who will use their moods to intimidate and manipulate. They use it to garner attention, power, praise, and pity. It is some of these aspects of moodiness that I want us to look at in this lecture. This discussion (held on 9 August 2015) attempted to explain some of the aspects of moodiness that affect our lives and those of others around us. Listen, learn, laugh, and edit your Youniverse!

WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE

Things happen to us and we happen to things, yet we cannot possibly wrap our heads around everything in the universe. That is why our outlooks on what is good or bad might not be as accurate as we think. Therefore, if you have ever wondered why bad things sometimes happen to good people, you need to pay attention to my anecdotes, examples, and analogies, as I attempt to explain the consequences, connections, and situations that affect the occurrences in our collective and individual lives. This lecture was delivered on 27 August 2022 as a further inquiry into concepts in Islamic spirituality. Before you say “Why me!” listen attentively and learn how to edit your Youniverse!

HOW SHAME CAN AFFECT YOUR LIFE

Do you feel unappreciated, rejected, inadequate, and worried about what people think about you? Is there any aspect of your life that you are perpetually embarrassed and disgraced about? Do you walk around with your head down because you are ashamed of who you are and what you do? The emotions of shame, when taken too far can adversely affect our self-esteem and we go through life as if we are sorry to be alive. This lecture, delivered on the 13, August 2022, looks into ways of regaining your self-confidence so you can remove the heavy yoke of guilt and humiliation from your psyche over what is none of your business. If shame is a problem for you, then listen, learn and edit your Youniverse!
