9- "I can see", Helen Keller:






The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt within the heart.
Helen Keller


[22:46] Did they not roam the earth, then use their minds to understand,
 and use their ears to hear?  Indeed, the real blindness is not the blindness of the eyes, but the blindness of the hearts inside the chests.


Helen Keller enjoyed her eyesight and hearing in this world only for 19 months,
After which she had no means to contact the world except through her hands.

Our hands by design carry God's signature, above the wrist bones there are 19
bones in the palm and fingers. (the total number of bones in the body also comes to
a multiple of 19, 209 bones).

With using this simple tool, Helen was able to learn to talk in several languages, understand people just by putting her fingertips against their lips, and to read and write in braille.

She even joined Radcliff college in 1900 and graduated with honors, a task many people who could see and hear can not achieve!





Eventhough her body was deaf and blind, her soul was not. She achieved alot for those she called " those less fortunate than myself".


So whatever your condition maybe, you should be appreciative towards God, for there will always be people who are less fortunate than yourself. Remember that we did a horrendous crime in Heaven (when we doubted the absolute power of God) which brough us here, our just requital would have been to be banished forever in hell, but the Most Merciful gave us this chance to redeem ourselves, we should be thankful to whatever He bestows upon us, we should be content and learn a lesson of steadfastness from Helen Keller, for there is always a good point and a lesson to learn from suffering,


Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content. -- Helen Keller


When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. -- Helen Keller

Most people have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. -- Helen Keller


The best way out is always through. -- Helen Keller


  We can do anything if we stick to it long enough. -- Helen Keller




On God:


I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.
Helen Keller 


[22:46] Did they not roam the earth, then use their minds to understand, and use their ears to hear?
 Indeed, the real blindness is not the blindness of the eyes, but the blindness of the hearts inside the chests.



It gives me a deep comforting sense that "things seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal."
Helen Keller


[40:39] "O my people, this first life is a temporary illusion, while the Hereafter is the eternal abode."



It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky. Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.
Helen Keller 


[41:30] Those who proclaim: "Our Lord is GOD," then lead a righteous life, the angels descend upon them:
"You shall have no fear, nor shall you grieve. Rejoice in the good news that Paradise has been reserved for you.

 


On Submission:


I understand how it was possible for Spinoza to find deep and sustained happiness when he was excommunicated, poor, despised and suspected alike by Jew and Christian; not that the kind world of men ever treated me so, but that his isolation from the universe of sensuous joys is somewhat analogous to mine. He loved the good for its own sake. Like many great spirits he accepted his place in the world, and confided himself childlike to a higher power, believing that it worked through his hands and predominated in his being.
He trusted implicitly, and that is what I do.
Deep, solemn optimism, it seems to me, should spring from this firm belief in the presence of God in the individual; not a remote, unapproachable governor of the universe, but a God who is very near every one of us, who is present not only in earth, sea and sky, but also in every pure and noble impulse of our hearts, 'the source and centre of all minds, their only point of rest
.'   Helen Keller 


[2:186]
When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near. I answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be guided.
