Hi Mohsen,

How are you?

I believe that winter is family season. I love to set near the fireplace and listen to my family, this really makes me warm and gives me an inner pace. But it makes me a little lazy so forgive me cause I don't write a lot.

Thanks Mohsen for sharing us those useful and interesting stories, I really enjoyed reading them!

Dear, I loved your last story a lot.The woman in it was really smart.
Behnam has always said : Actions speak louder than words. However, we -women- don't always follow or care about this rule, we love to hear sweet and love words although this is wrong especially when its relate to an emotional matter cause even if we got a good experience and lesson but it's very harmful and break our hearts.

Please keep sharing us those useful stories. Individually I really like to read more so please would you mind giving me the link which you take them from.

Thanks in advanced.

Best wishes

Amal

In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.
However, when it does draw near, we fear what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not ruled by our will or by what we do.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals.
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.
Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.
Contradictions are what make love grow. Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.
Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dead ever?!

I like what you Gleaned from the net especially this sentence...
[amal] wrote:Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.
Yeah my dearest dead that is true and I like to say "Life is build on love base and love is its axis"
Love is one of few things that you can't bey with money. I resemble love as a planet and love words are its people. they are very friendly creatures to deal with.
Without love there is no husband and wife, no father and mother, no son and daughter, on brother and sister, no you and me.

Have nice days full of love...

Hi friends,

You cannot imagine how much I've missed you. I am really dying for you. Thank you very much for keeping the thread active. I love reading your posts. I check the thread EVERYDAY, but I was too busy to post something. Fortunately, I will be off for about 4 days. Answering to Nana's difficult question(Thank you dear Elham for reminding me. I'd forgotten it completely), and writing a long report-formed post to Elham are on my schedule. I'll will carry out these two important tasks on the following days.

Oh, I am happy to read some nice expressions and descriptions about love. I smell the smell of love from the thread. How pleasant it is!

One thing should be mentioned over and over again. I personally have read many love stories related to different cultures. I am also familiar with love. I know what love is. Love without tolerance, sacrificing, respect, patience, forgiveness, care and support is a transitory passion; a desire based on selfishness and neediness.

I am sorry to say that for many men love is as a powerful and effective tool(key) to unlock the gate and enter the amazing land of women. After grazing for some time, and spoiling the beauty of the garden men often leave and their footprints are some children who need a lot of attempts and efforts to be grown up! In many cases, there is no footprint, but the garden is spoiled! Oh my God! Regardless of big responsibilities, children can be at least the evidence of unspoiled beautiful old garden. However, as I said, in many cases, men are even too selfish to leave footprints!

I believe there is some significant points for ladies. Hehehehe...LOL :lol:

Sorry, I have to leave quickly.

All the best,
Behnam, 20 November, 2012

Dear Mohsen,

Maybe what you said is right.

Last weekend I told my aunt about what it happen to my friend. She explain the good man meet the bad things because of the result of the previous life in Confucianism.Do you believe it is a man has the previous life?If you believe,you think what is your previous life?

Best regards

Hi Amal,

An untimely winter has come to my city Isfahan, cold raining here and snowy in small towns that are located on the slope of mountains near to Isfahan. Isfahan has experienced drought for four consecutive years — we welcome this heavy winter rainfall. While we’re pleased by the rainfall, we should continue respecting to the need for water conservation.
Sorry for being late in reply , I spend my leisure time in mourning parties , The first 10 days of Moharam is particular days for us and we have ceremony for anniversary of Imam Hossien Martyrdom in the mosques.
It is my pleasure that you enjoyed reading the stories. I gather the stories form my mail box , some group of people who are my friends sometimes send me story ,we send the stories to each other in a circle .
That is true that action speak louder than words , but my dear friend be careful ,some people acts are fake ,they achieved their aim by canning. They pretend that they are open minded , help others , show their love and kindness . But they try to attract people to manipulate their thoughts and acts.

Here is another story , I hope you enjoy it.

WHEN A LIZARD CAN, WHY CAN"T WE?
This is a true story that happened in Japan .
In order to renovate the house,someone in Japan breaks open the wall.Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls .
When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet.He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail,it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built.
What happened? The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years!!!!!!! !!!
In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling.Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years!!! Without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what andhow it has been eating.
Later, not knowing from where it came appears another lizard, with food in its mouth.
Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply.For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years...
Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Think, will u do that to your partner?
Think that will you do it to your Mom, who brought you after a big struggle of nine long months?
Or at least to your Dad, Friends, Co-workers, brothers and Sisters?
Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can"t.
As information and communication technology advances ,
our access to information becomes faster and faster.
But the distance between human beings . . . is it getting closer as well?
Please never abandon your loved ones
Never Say U R Busy When They Really Need You ...
You May Have The Entire World At Your Feet.....
But You Might Be The Only World To Them....
A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loves you thru all odds..
Before you say something just remember?It takes a moment to Break but an entire life to
make...
To Live Use Heart and to Survive use Brains.
Then Life would be a paradise unfurling only Love Joy and Happiness

Hi Friends,

Thankfully, our dear friend Mohsen has agreed that 'actions speak louder than words'. However, he has wisely introduced another topic which is related to another area of knowledge. According to him, now, we should separate fakes from facts. We should also recognize sincere people from pretentious ones. I agree with him. I'd like to thank Mohsen for his nice points.

How can we realize who is who?

First of all, it should be kept in mind that as a general rule, for all creatures, necessity is the main engine of movement! What does it mean? It means right now Behnam is writing these things for some purposes. He is looking for something, maybe he is looking for fame, attention, kindness, etc. Perhaps he is showing off in order to be the center of attention. Maybe, he has found an excuse to write something as well as practise English. Therefore, it is obvious that Behnam is trying to get some benefits from this action(writing). I am sure you know that benefits can be financial or spiritual.

So far, we know that we are all benefit-oriented creatures. We also know that benefits are different. It doesn't necessarily mean that what we do is beneficial. Sometimes we target to benefit(our intention is getting benefit) but the result does not meet our intention. In some cases, something is beneficial for someone, but others may have different ideas. Anyway, people have different ideas about benefit and loss. It depends-to a great extent-on our philosophy of life.

Let's return to the first paragraph. I believe, we should not be too pessimistic about people and the intention of their actions. We should have our own equations in the life. In other words, we ought to have our own goals. On the way of achieving our goals, if someone's actions help us with easier and earlier achievement, we can welcome their actions. This simply means a win-win interaction. Therefore, a win-win interaction(relationship, cooperation, etc.) is OK, no matter what the intention of people is.

Finally, we all know that nothing is perfect in the entire universe, since perfection means prevention to betterment, progress, movement . When evaluating something(an action), we should consider both positiveness and negativeness. After analyzing carefully, we should calculate all pluses and minuses. If the result is positive, that's beneficial for us. When calculation shows that the total is negative, it is against our goals. All in all, I believe, we had better focus on our own goals(equations), instead of too much pessimist and suspicion.

Unfortunately, being in the classrooms for years and living with teacher parents have made me sound as a teacher in every circumstance. I am neither giving tips, nor teaching, nor advising. The style of my writing is like I am giving tips, but I don't actually. I am expressing my ideas. I hope nobody will get upset or annoyed from my way of writing. I don't mean to insult anybody.

These are my ideas. I also don't want to make you think of me as an open-minded person. There is no valid standard for evaluating the amount of open-mindedness or close-mindedness.

All the best,
Behnam, 21 November, 2012

Hi dear Behnam, Amal and Mohsen,

Reading your opinions about this idea that " Actions speaks louder that words" sth came to my mind, I wanna share it with you.

I DO BELIEVE, heart speaks to heart. As we say in Farsi : " Harche az del barayad, lajaran bar del neshinad."

While reading Mohsen's post this saying came to my mind. I believe we CAN recognize fake feelings and words from true ones. Deep down we know how much the person means his words and actions. BUT... sometimes we want to believe fake ones since it is pleasant to us and we can benefit from it, and sometimes we like to deny the true ones since we find it unpleasant , feel jealous, or we are afriad of the results.

If person A says sth to me, I can understand his intention myself,( emmm, not sure ofcourse! :lol: :lol: :lol: ) Let others say what they want. It doesn't affect my sense. I myself should be honest, honest, honest, really honest, and hope ohers believe me and it sure helps me recognize other's honesty too.

By the way, I think we should we careful with our words and actions. I may really mean what I say but the salt should be sefficiant, we shouldn't cause misinterpretation.It's very important. We
always have to keep balance and be careful.

Sth else, I think even those who we suppose are pretending to be open minded, really believe theyare open minded, they just don't know they aren't! {-: isn't it? Oh every thing is relative, there is no any absolute thing.

Dear Behnam, thanks for your very interesting recent posts. As always I enoyed them. And do agree with you on your opinions. You always mean what you say. You are always yourself; an opinionated man who knows what he says and assertively and firmly says so that it always makes him attractive.

All the best,
Elham

Dear Behnam,

Thank you very much for your post , I agree with you about not being pessimistic about people ,also I admire your great sentence about benefits and loss ,different attitudes about it ,someone beneficial idea is the loss idea for other.
I know a shopkeeper who sell his goods base on the price which he has bought it . he doesn't consider the current price of goods in the market. If he had bought goods with a cheap price he would sell it cheap. He is such a shopkeeper that never had economically impressive progressed. He is proud of his manner while some people believe that he is a fool man.
He is also a man who responsible for preparing tea for the people who come to the mosques, every nights he is working behind his tea desk free of charge and prepare tea service for thousands of people who come to the mosque.

Behnam, my idea about pretenses actions was in general, it has vast dimensions in social and ideological belief. While many young people are attracted to pretenses actions and change their basic beliefs.

I don't know the following example is the evidence for my statement or not , but I write it.

1500 years ago some pagan Arabs used to kill the baby if she was a girl. With the advent of Islam laws the practicing of female infanticide was condemned. Islam brought a new lease of life to women and elevated the status of women to great heights: so high that she stood shoulder to shoulder with man.
Islam also condemns abortion. During the development of fetus,when the body received the life-energy ( given the soul to the foetus) killing the baby (abortion ) is like killing a person in the street. A person who does it should pay fine like killing a human being .
But these days the civilized people have abortion with no fear of God like that ancient pagan Arabs , Does the civilization of human decline to 1500 years ago. What is the different between those uncivilized people and modern civilized people . Is the act these people shows that they come back to 1500 years ago?

It is great sentence which Elham mentioned it "sometimes we want to believe fake ones since it is pleasant to us and we can benefit from it, and sometimes we like to deny the true ones since we find it unpleasant" Thank you Elham for this great sentence.

A thoughts of poetry #4:


Don't kill my dream
Don't kill my dream
Don't kill my dream that I built my hopes on it
And I decided to live with it what was left from my years
Don't kill it, it's still a baby
Don't kill it, it's an innocent angel
Don't kill it, it's candle light
Don't kill it, it's a beacon of the road
Don't kill it, love doesn't forbidden
Don't kill it, my talk doesn't criminalized
Don't kill it, don't kill it
Don't kill my dream :cry:

Hi Wilzin,

How are you my friend?

There is no need to correct your writing since it is what you felt and it's your belief, I always follow my feelings and do what I believe that's the right thing to do. Anyway, who knows what is the right or the wrong?!

In answering your question about dream killing, I prefer to kill my young dream instead of living a fake reality.

Sometimes, it's better to give up dreaming and try to transfer it into a reality. Sometimes, killing a dream opens for us other beautiful doors and maybe give us the chance to have bigger dreams. Sometimes, killing a dream give us the chance to know other nice people and have a good memories about the old ones; Or give us the chance to know another world...

My friend, the life doesn't end, if you didn't get one of your dreams. But it would end, if you stopped dreaming.

Please don't let your life concern about just one dream...

Best wishes,
Amal

Dear Wilzin,

I never give up on my dreams. I live with my dreams, without dreams I'm nothing. Actually, what gives me hope and makes me take next step is my dreams.I never meet them completely, but you know? My dreams makes me! When I want to know myself, I refer to my dreams, dreams I've had in the past, and dreams I have now for future! I have so many dreams, not just for external things! I have dreams on who I want to be, on which persnality I like to be seen as, on what kind of daughter, friend, wife and mother I want to be! :-D

I'm sure that just dreaming is not enough! I try not to be a blind person. I believe I'm a patient person! Sometimes I see other people are meeting MY dreams; sometimes, I get tooooooooo close to my dreams that there is just one step left to reach it, but I lose it; some times I just see that I'm getting away from my dear dream, ohhhhh, the worst case that has happened to me is reaching my big dream but just having it in my hands, it pures like water when you hold it in your hands and observe it leaving through the distance between your fingers! :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

So you see, many dangers may threaten our dreams, but that never doesn't mean we have to kill them. We have to find the best way to cope with what fate brings to us! :-)

I love my dreams, they keep me alive, I try to reach them or in case I can't, I keep them some where in my mind! Emmm, maybe I convince myself that it hasn't been a right dream!

Dear Wilzin, one of my biggest dreams is to be a good person, the one who god loves! I do do do envy those who are such persons. Good for them, what is more pleasant than that? To be his lovely child,to be the one whom he feels proud of, the one whom he is satisfied with!
............good for them, good for them, good for them....

How enjoyable it is to know you're taking steps rightly in his way! Oh how sweet is when you know what you're doing is what makes him happy, that way you do it with all your heart and soul, you die for doing that! You sacrifice everything just to let him know that you love him!ohhh........

Good for them, oh good for them........

Hi Elham,

At the moment, I don't know what to write. However, I've promised to write a long report-formed post to you. I really love writing, but writing aimlessly is like talking carelessly or walking randomly! I wish you had given me a topic.

Today is final day of our religious Holidays. I have to stay at home. I am here at my computer from the beginning of the day until the evening. I check my mailbox, reply to some emails, send some emails to my friends, read the headlines, chat with my friends on EC, Skype and Yahoo Messenger, etc.

Let me write about the things I did yesterday. I got up at about 6am and after saying my prayers, I filled the kettle and switched it on. Then I took keys and drove to baker's to buy some bread. Unfortunately, the shop was closed. I tried different bakeries, but all were shut! I called my wife and consulted with her. She said; "That's OK Behnam. Forget fresh bread. Today is Tasua. I guessed the shops would be inactive. We had some bread from the previous day. We could use them." This message made me happy, since I was feeling embarrassed about being back empty-handed. LOL :lol:

We had breakfast at about 8am. We ate honey, cheese, walnut, with Lavash(a sort of bread in Iran). We also drank some mugs of tea.

After the breakfast, I turned my computer on. Fortunately, the kids where asleep. My wife cleaned and washed up. There where nothing more to do, well the house wasn't untidy. It was about 9am one of the kids started making some noise. My wife was in the kitchen. I took the kid and checked whether he was hungry or needed to have his nappy changed. Actually, both of them were correct. He needed both food and clean nappy. :oops: My wife wanted me to look after him for a short time, and I did. Then she came and gave proper services to them. I just helped her prepare warm water and wash them in turn. {-:

I sat at my computer and checked mailbox, read headline, surfed the Net for a while and joined my friends in the chat room. It was about 12:30am that my wife wanted me to call local sandwich seller and order two sandwiches. I did it. After some minutes, a motor driver rang the bell and gave me the sandwiches and the bill. I paid for them and thanked the man.

After praying, we ate lunch at about 1pm. Then I went to the bed, while the computer was downloading 'Soviet secret weapons'! I got up at about 5pm. It was dark. I switched the lamp on and checked computer to see if the file was downloaded completely or not. It was downloaded. I left the room and saw my wife watching TV. The kettle was on the cooker, and tea was ready. The kids were awake, making some noises, like ghoghagum bigh baghoo, dirrrrrr, shirrrrrrr, I aped them for a while then poured two mugs of tea. After, drinking tea, my wife wanted me to look after the children, because she wanted to cook something for dinner. I did it, but in fact they didn't need.

It was about 8pm we ate dinner(as a habit, we eat dinner early). Then I was at my computer. First, I watched the downloaded file. It took me 55 minutes. The file was in English. I chatted with some friends on Yahoo Messenger, Skype, and EC. Finally, we went to bed at about 11:30 I guess.

Something else: On Thursday afternoon(my favourite day of the week is Thursdays. I love Thursday very much. It looks like people are happier on Thursdays. Everything seems to smile at me. I am happy too.) We went to the market(Tarebar) to buy some fruit and some special vegetables and Vinegar, since my wife had decided to make some pickle. While doing the shopping, some people were giving candy to customers. In fact, on Thursdays some people distribute dates, fruits, or candies among people in order to indirectly ask them to pray for their dead members! In other words, they ask people to read 'Al-fateheh'(a famous verse in the Holy Koran) for dead members. As a religious belief, 'Al-Fatehe' helps dead people have happy soul in grave. In particular, Thursdays are so suitable for this purpose. I don't know how it works!

Due to the fact that date and fruit are expensive, these days people distribute some cheap candies among people. When one of them took the pocket of candies in front of me and said, "here you are", I took a candy and said, "I don't think this candy can help a dead person go to Heaven. Why don't you give banana?" People around me, specially some girls, laughed at my way of talking. To be honest, I said it on purpose, to make people(girls) laugh!

Today is Ashura(the tenth day of historical fight of Imam Husein with Yazid's troops). Yazid was a cruel caliph. He didn't care about Islam and its rules. He wanted Imam Husein to say 'yes' to him, but Imam Husein said 'NO'! Imam Husein was the second grandchild of prophet Muhammad. He knew the real Islam and what wrong with Yazid was! Yazid wanted him to say 'YES', otherwise he threatened to be killed. Imam Husein said, "I prefer dying to humiliation" Finally, they fought! Imam Husein had 72 helpers. They fought bravely with thousands soldiers.The point is this: They knew that they would lose the battle, but they fought to die. They didn't want to say 'YES" to a unbeliever cruel Caliph.

Imam Husein has given the most important lesson to human beings. The message is this: Dying for your beliefs is more valuable than living in relief! Imam Husein has taught us that blood finally wins sword! To convert this sentence into this modern world's language; blood wins atomic bomb! This blood is the blood which some brave people(believers) give to water the tree of their belief!

Imam Husein has showed us that there are only two ways of living in this world. Living freely, while supporting the facts(truth), and living among unbelievers; supporting cruelty!

I don't know what to write. My mind doesn't work properly. I hope this will make my dear friend Elham happy.

All the best,
Behnam, 25 November, 2012

I specially loved the last part you have written about Imam Hosein (Alyhe sallam). Woww, I loved this part:


Imam Husein has given the most important lesson to human beings. The message is this: Dying for your beliefs is more valuable than living in relief! Imam Husein has taught us that blood finally wins sword! To convert this sentence into this modern world's language;

You have written it in a wonderful, thoughtful, great way. Many thanks my dear friend.

Dear Behanm,

I hope your babies and wife are health and happy.

For you,as a new father,everyday is rich and pleasure.I shouldn't bother you.However one question is confused me and I need your answer.As you see the post I wrote to Amal,I visited a friend last weekend.She divorced, got the renal failure,lost her job.Every unlucky thing takes place on her.But she is a nice and good person.She havn't done a bad thing or hurt other people.Even if her husband treats her so badly,she wouldn't hate him.Why she meet so many unlucky things. It's said "Give cake and ale to perfect soul".God should bless that people who is doing good thing?Can you give me a answer?

Best regards

Nana


Hi Nana,

First of all, I should say sorry to be this much late in replying to your post. There are some reasons for this long delay:


1) This question is really difficult. This cannot be answered and understood by means of materialist philosophy which is popular in the world.


2) This question is not my piece of cake! As you know, my filed is Physics. I know only a little bit Physics and some basic things in English.


3) I was really pressed for time when you asked me this question. I had a very busy schedule. I was the main secretary and manager of a conference. Therefore, I had a lot of things to do. That's why I couldn't concentrate and think about it properly.

4) To be honest with you, after the conference, I completely forgot the question, but thankfully our dear friend Elham reminded me.

I have promised to write something about your difficult question. It should be mentioned that I am just writing something about it. In other words, I am not answering to your question, since it belongs to another area; beyond my field of study.

Firstly, according to the Holy Koran, this world is just a place(and of course an opportunity) for people to make themselves ready for transferring to another world. You may ask; "well, when someone dies earlier than others, they don't take enough time to prepare for the travel." That's true from one aspect, but having long longevity doesn't necessarily mean good preparation. The majority of people waste their lives. These people make themselves heavy with committing sins. Committing sins and bad actions result in short wings. Therefore, they cannot fly! Plus, time is extremely important. For many people, the longer longevity, the higher possibility to get heavy!

In order to make it understandable, let me make an analogy between sin and heaviness on the one hand, good action and wing on the other hand. Committing sins make someone heavy, which is against of the rule of travelling, and good deeds result in long and wide wings which lead to easy flight.

Using simple maths shows that for bad people it is better to leave this world earlier, and good people can live longer, because the more they live, the bigger their wings become! This calculation is correct from our stand of view, but who can guarantee that those good people will be good forever? Maybe, today someone has got two big wings(due to good deeds), but tomorrow they may act badly and, consequently, their wings get shortened. Who knows?

For some people, leaving early is good(dying), for some others, staying longer is useful(living more). Only God knows what is good for people!

Secondly, when we evaluate things by using our feelings and thoughts, we consider some things lucky(as you have put it), some others unlucky. This way of categorization does not work from God's point of View! This way of evaluating has created by human beings. Your friend looks sick. We(you and I) say, "Oh, poor she!". We are not aware that this sickness may result in some good events. Maybe for that person, leaving earlier is the exact luckiness! Who knows?

Finally, we say, "Poor she", because we think the life is just limited to this world. This way of thinking is one of the disadvantages of materialist philosophy. Although it makes people work hard to have better lives(taking the only opportunity and maximum benefits, because we can live once according to this philosophy), it has some negative effects. For example, the poor and sick people are disappointed. In addition, people(the poor and the rich) are spiritually weak. Being spiritually weak can be one of the main reasons for self-killing in the modern societies.

In conclusion, I think, our way of evaluation and calculation is wrong! We are not aware of the exact luckiness and unluckiness!

I hope it helps.

All the best,
Behnam, 26 November, 2012

Hi Behnam,

My boss took me to Tehran by force, I hate him. There is an automobile fair in Tehran international Exhibitions location , Most of companies were from Iran, China and Turkey. My boss asked me to have meeting with some companies in the exhibition and discuss about business. There were 150 companies from China. In each booth there were one or two Chinese girls and a boy . I don't know why the girls only were able to speak English. The girls were slim and short like a doll. I spoke English well with them, of course this was my boss's idea, because I have a chance that my boss doesn't know English at all, Chinese speaking English were as good as me. Poor my boss.
I am against my boss strategy , he always wants to buy goods from China ,because they are cheaper, but I encourage him to buy the goods from Iranian companies. Fortunately we signed a contract with Iranian company.
Today I came back from Tehran.
Have a good time
Mohsen

Hi Wilzin,

How are you?

Oh you were in a desert but I wasn't alive at allll!!! I was really sick all those 52 hours, I slept all the time, having cold and not being in contact with my friends killed me. A lot of bad thoughts came to my mind and I was afraid that I'll never ever be in touch with Elham and Behnam!!!!!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Sadly when the net worked yesterday I was too tired and couldn't do anything although I miss Eli and Behnam. :cry: :cry:

What did you do last two days? And how is your study?

Best wishes

Re: Let's learn together!

Post by Mohsen » Sun Dec 02, 2012 6:30 pm

Hi friends, this moral story ,I forward it to you

Nafiseh sat waiting for her friend Narges who was coming to visit her. She was surprised at her friend's demand for a private meeting. Nafiseh thought Narges must have a serious problem, so she was anxious to see her friend, when she arrived a few minutes late. Nafiseh waited for her to start talking while Narges tried to appear composed.

Then she said, "Can I ask you a question!"

"Yes, with pleasure!" said Nafiseh.

Narges said, "I want you to answer frankly."

"Now you know I am always frank!" Nafiseh assured her.

"Why did you refuse Ramin's proposal of marriage!" burst out Narges.

Nafiseh was taken aback by the question. She was silent for a while, and said, "Can I also ask you a question!"

"Of course, you can," said Narges.

"Why do you ask me a question that might upset me? You know he is my relative and I have refused him for certain reasons."

Hesitantly Narges said, "Well, he has proposed to me. That's why I want to know your reasons for refusing him."

"Oh, I see!" said Nafiseh, and went silent. Then Narges began to plead with her saying, "I must know. I am your friend, am not I! Don't you care for me?"

"Yes, you are my friend and I do care for you, so I will tell you the reason. But first of all, what do you know about him? " Nafiseh asked Narges.

"I know that he is a handsome, gentleman, educated, and well mannered with a good social position."

"That's right," said Nafiseh. "He is also wealthy. But is that enough?"

Narges, pale faced, murmured, "He is not a committed Muslim !"

"You know this and yet you still ask me my reason for refusing him?"

"I know that religion is very important, but he might change”, said Narges.

"How?" asked Nafiseh.

"Have you ever thought that he might be guided to the right path?" proffered Narges.

"Is this what you think?" said Nafiseh.

"I think," began Narges, "that refusing him is a kind of cowardice. I think we can bring Ramin and the likes of him back to religion, and that we should strive for that."

"O.K., but how are you going to do it?" Nafiseh said.

"I have means" said Narges. "Anyway why should I refuse him when he has all these good qualifications?

If I leave him, he may marry someone who will increase his disregard for religion. If I accept him, I may bring him back to faith."

"That's your opinion" said Nafiseh. "I won't impose mine on you. However, it is a very dangerous game, or marriage at risk."

"Oh, please do not exaggerate so Nafiseh. Marriage is an adventure. I feel I can tolerate the experience."

"You are quite wrong! Experience does not make a fool wise. There is a great difference between marriage to a committed believer, who is careful of his religious duties which protect him from deviation, and a non-committed Muslim, who cares for nothing but earthly pleasures that change with the times."

"It is a risk" said Narges, "But if I succeed it would be in the best interests of religion."

"You say: ‘If I succeed', this 'if' indicates your doubts. Marriage should start on a firm foundation." Nafiseh told her.

Narges looked down as if in inner conflict. Then she said, "What is your opinion?"

"I don't know what to say" said Nafiseh. "I am afraid you will suffer as a result of such an experience. It is a dangerous game. A husband does not usually accept his wife's opinion and he may even make her accept his. Then the wife may find herself standing at a crossroad leading either to the failure of her marriage or the loss of her religion. You know both are terribly hard to tolerate."

Nafiseh stopped for a while and waited for Narges to speak.

When she did it was in a choked voice, "What then?"

"I think you can spare yourself such trouble!" said Nafiseh kindly.

"Suppose I am forced into doing it. What should I do then ? "

"That's for you to decide Narges. No one can impose their will on you, whoever they are!"

Narges was silent, then said challengingly, "I shall take the risk. I hope that I will be successful."

Nafiseh looked at her and said coldly, "You are free to do what you like. I hope you won't be sorry afterwards." Narges got up saying, "I apologize for having taking up your time."

Nafiseh, "Nothing to apologize for, I feel sorry for you! "

They shook hands and Narges left the house. Nafiseh felt she had just lost a friend.

A few weeks later, Narges sat, waiting anxiously for her husband. It was nearly 11 p.m. and she was very worried. She looked at the clock every other minute, and at half past eleven she heard the door open and close softly. She got up and saw her husband enter. Her face became bright with happiness. She said, "Oh Ramin, you are late!" She was scared when she saw he looked disappointed. He said, "Why haven't you gone to bed yet?"

"How can I sleep when you are still out? " asked Narges.

While he was taking off his suit and putting on his pajama, he murmured, "That will cause you a lot of worry."

"How? " asked Narges.

"Because I shall often be late. There is no need for you to stay awake and alone."

She was disturbed at his answer and could not believe her ears. So instead she said, "Your supper is ready." Smiling he said,

"I ate out. Some friends invited me to a club. They held a party in my honour."

"I hope you enjoyed it. But why didn't you tell me about it before?" asked Narges.

"There was no need to tell you, as you won't go with me to such places," said Ramin.

"Well, at least I wouldn't have got so worried."

Ramin said, "You should have known that I was at a social engagement. I live amongst educated liberals, and cannot be isolated at home with a woman..." he uttered the last words in a sharp tone and then said, "Now, go and have your supper."

With tears in her eyes, she sadly said, "I am not hungry."

Ramin said, "Then let's go to bed."

Narges said, "I expect you've already done your prayer?"

Coldly, Ramin said, "It is after mid-night. Prayer time is over."

"No", said Narges, "It is not yet mid-night. Anyway it must be done even if it is late."

"You don't know how tired and sleepy I am!" said Ramin.

"Fatigue doesn't exempt one from one's religious duty."

Mockingly he said, "Allah will accept my excuse."

"No matter-if you love me you must do your prayer." Angrily, Ramin got up saying, "Please do not mix up my love with praying and fasting. Let me love you in my way not yours. Anyway, I will not allow you to call me to account about my prayer every night!"

He threw himself on the bed and fell asleep leaving Narges shocked at his words. She recalled Nafiseh's words which had apparently come true.

She hurried to the Holy Qur'an to seek comfort and refuge. She opened it at random and read the first verse of the page which said: ...We did them no injustice, but they were unjust to themselves. (al-Nahal, 118)

Days and weeks passed. Narges could find no way of getting Ramin to come to her way of thinking. Whenever she talked about religion, he either mocked her or turned a deaf ear. She tried her best to give him comfort and happiness at home, but she found him more and more interested in spending his time outside. One night she waited long time for him to come home, and when he did he seemed happy, so she thought it would be a good time for her to talk to him.

She said gently, "Don't you see that I am unhappy?"

Ramin surprised said, "You are unhappy? Why? Haven't I provided you with all the means for your comfort?"

“Yes, I must admit you have! Anyway, happiness is what matters; without it, there is no comfort."

"Why aren't you happy then ? " asked Ramin.

Narges said, “How can I be happy when you are so physically, spiritually and emotionally far away from me?"

“That's partly true," conceded Ramin, "but I love you so I do not completely agree with what you say."

"If you loved me you would please me. You know I am not happy about your behaviour."

"Have I hurt you in any way?" asked Ramin, much surprised.

"You have not hurt me physically, but you have hurt me mentally by your disregard for the belief that you promised to respect. You are not careful enough about religion, to bring us closer to each other."

"Well, I am afraid I cannot change my life style. I cannot give up my friends or my social life. I cannot be cut off from others just to spend my life behind these walls. I cannot perform my prayer in a mosque just to please you. Faith stems from personal satisfaction. It would be nothing but hypocrisy if I worshipped Allah just for you. You know that I am an honest, straightforward person, both in my personal and business dealings. What more do you want? "

Narges listened, while her heart sank. She said in broken voice, "What about me? Have I no place at all in your life?"

"You are my beloved wife. I love no one but you. Come closer to my heart and you will know real happiness."

"What do you mean?" said Narges.

"I mean give up ideas that keep you from enjoying life's pleasures. Turn to me whole-heartedly, and I will make you taste a life that you are still unaware of. You are at cross-roads, either you put your hand in mine and I'll take you into a world of happiness, or you stay a prisoner in your house, content with it."

"Isn't there a third choice?" she asked. Ramin was silent for a while and then said, "Yes, there is. We can separate; and though it would be hard for me, it would be less harmful than if you decided to refuse my suggestion."

Narges was silent. She wanted to scream and run away, but she was helpless. She spent a long sleepless night, feeling as if she was between two fires both of which could burn her. She was about to choose a divorce, but then thought of the tiny creature moving in her womb.

This innocent creature tied her both to the house and her husband. She was soon to be a mother. She felt dizzy with thinking and, throwing her head on to her hand, she went into a dreamless sleep. When she woke up her husband said, "Narges, why didn't you sleep in your bed?"

She opened her eyes to see him standing near her with a cheerful face as if he was ignorant of the reason why she hadn't gone to bed. She looked at him silently.

Anxiously, he said, "Why are you pale? Are you sick?" He put his hand round her and sat nearby.

She said, “Do you really not know why I am sad?"

He laughed gently saying, "Even if I know, what can I do about it? I have offered you my heart, so is it my fault if you reject it? By the way, today I have some visitors, so be ready for the occasion."

"Who are they?" said Narges.

"Just some friends with their wives." He was silent waiting for his wife's reaction.

She said, "Will it be a mixed meeting for men and women ?"

"Of course, you do not really expect me to stick to the old tradition of having a separate room for women, do you?"

"What about me then?" asked Narges.

"You are free to do what you like," said Ramin.

She was silent for a while; then, wishing to compromise and thus show some understanding, she said, “O.K, I shall be present."

Her husband was happy-he kissed her warmly saying, "Do you mean it? How happy I am. I shall be the happiest husband. I shall be so proud of your beauty. You are the sun that will outshine their dim lights."

"What has my beauty to do with anything? To please you, I have decided to be present but I will wear hijab."

Ramin drew back in disgust, "In decent hijab? No! I do not want you to be mocked. Just prepare dinner and leave the house. That will be better. I can find some excuse to explain your absence."

Narges could not tolerate such an insult. She got up saying, "It is better if I leave the house at once."

"What about the guests?" asked Ramin.

"You can take them to a club".

"When will you come back?" asked Ramin.

"I may never come back!" retorted Narges.

"What about my child?" asked Ramin, calmly and deliberately. Those words were strong enough to remind her of the bitter reality, the great dilemma she was in.

She despairingly murmured, "Oh, what a fool I was! How right Nafiseh was!"

When he heard Nafiseh's name, he said laughingly, "Oh, that snob! I proposed to her just to crush her pride and religious vanity. Now you remember her; what has she or her advice ever done for you? You are on the verge of destroying your marriage and your family life is about to fail because of this backward Nafiseh!"

Narges angrily said, "No, I won't allow you to speak ill of her. Had I listened to her advice I would have spared myself such an experience. Anyway, it is my own fault. I must bear the consequences.

Two years later, Nafiseh sat thinking of her friend Narges. She had heard a lot about her that she found difficult to believe. She could not believe that after a bitter struggle Narges had given in to her husband. She had heard she no longer cared for Islamic hijab but accompanied her husband to parties and nightclubs. She had given birth to a boy, Farid and they said she was always sad and hardly ever smiled. Nafiseh heard such rumours and wished she could see Narges and learn the truth from her.



That morning the doorbell rang and Nafiseh hurried to open it. She was surprised to see Narges herself standing in front of her. She was pale and unhappy. Nafiseh welcomed her and led her into the living room. Narges sat silently, not knowing what to say.

Nafiseh said "Oh, Narges, how I hoped I'd see you; I've heard so much about you, but I was anxious to hear from you yourself."



Narges cried bitterly saying, "I have no news except of disgrace and shame! I have been the victim of foolishness and self-deceit. Anyway I am not worthy of your friendship. I have fallen to the bottom of the abyss and am hopeless, may Allah forgive me!"

Nafiseh felt great pity for her and kindly said, "You are still my sister and I must help you, to overcome this awful experience. Now, please tell me everything frankly as you did in the past."



Narges said, “Well, you know that I never listened to your advice. I believed in a dream and ran to get it; I tried hard to get Ramin to come round to my way of thinking but ailed. He never accepted my religious commitment, and treated me cruelly, humiliating me often. Sometimes, he was gentle and kind and sometimes he was frightening. I thought about divorce, but my son caused me to give up that idea, so I gave in, and obeyed him meekly. He exploited my weakness and increased his domination over me, drawing me ever deeper into disgrace. I accepted everything just as a prisoner accepts his sentence. Now, you see me here!"

Nafiseh could not blame her seeing her as she did and asked, "What's the problem now then?"

"He divorced me a week ago, because he blamed me for the death of our son", said Narges. "Why?" asked Nafiseh incredulously.

"Because I fasted in the month of Ramadhan."

Nafiseh asked, "Did your son die of hunger?"

Narges replied, "Of course not. He was both breast-fed as well bottle-fed. He died after an illness." Nafiseh was greatly moved and felt sorry for the bereaved mother who had suffered humiliation and disgrace. So you see, I have lost everything," continued Narges.

Nafiseh hugged her warmly and said, "You have not lost everything. You still have your religion calling you back through repentance, and I am still your loving friend.

You still have the broad road of the future ahead of you. Perhaps this experience will help you to make a new righteous start; a future that is built on firm foundations. Don't despair, “...surely none despair of Allah's mercy except the unbelieving people.” (Yousef, 87)

Hi friends,

I was nothing, but spending some time with you made me be something. I was nothing, but you made me become a winner. I was nothing, but you made me become hopeful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don't know how to thank you for your support, care and encouragement. Should I kiss? Should I hug? Or, maybe both of them. I am joking.

You made me win again. Please visit the following link. Thank you very much indeed.

Hi Freinds,

Once I was passing the elephants, I suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

I saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well” trainer said “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it is enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

I was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

It is said that failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life, but I think nobody can change his habits, we should always try to be far from a situation which bother us.

:cry:

Hi Freinds,
It is friday evening , and we had a good weather today ,clear shy and multicolor trees,i was impressed by nature, I felt that I need to sing , following the Golestan to enjoy the saadi's parables ,

A Good Wife
A worthy woman, obedient and chaste,
Will make a dervish a king among the rest.
Go pray for your good luck if in the night
You have an agreeable friend at your side.
Should you grieve all the day, do not complain,
If at night your goodly wife dresses your pain.
He who owns a noble house and decent spouse
Is favored by Gods' blessing and applause.
That man enjoys his life in this world of debate
Who has an agreeable woman as his mate.
Should your wife be virtuous and fair in address,
Search not in her features beauty or ugliness.
A well-tempered lady, a merry spouse,
Shall hide your mistakes in your jolly house.
She who is temperate and sweet in speech,
Will beat a beautiful and spiteful bitch.
A well-bred woman is the solace of your life,
But God forbid if you are wed to an evil wife.
Better to be jailed by the man of law,
Than see your lady with an ugly brow.
A man who departs his town for a distant port,
Is happier if he escapes a surly consort.
Shut down the gate of merriment and bliss
To a house where the woman disturbs your peace.
If your wife doesn't obey your vote
You better wear a woman's petticoat!
If your wife smiles to strangers, O man,
Boast not of manhood, you're cuckold, a woman!
A well bred woman is a treasure in the house;
Leave a vicious and quarrelsome spouse.
Should your lovely wife hide her body and face,
In Paradise you'll meet her with all her grace.
But jest not Saadi; mock not a man's strife,
If you see the wretched soul henpecked by his wife.
For you too will suffer; you must obey your bride
If you dare to ask the beauty to dwell at your side.

Hi Nana,

WOW! Congratulations! I wish you lasting happiness and great success. I hope marriage will provide you great peace of mind and will bring you spiritual calmness.

I've written something about your difficult question. Have you noticed it? It is on page 87. Please read it. I hope it helps.



To all friends,


This is just to let you know that I've missed you very much. As I guess you know, I am sitting for PhD exam in March, so I am preparing myself for this important exam. I don't write and chat as I used to do. I rarely get connected to the Internet. I check my mailbox once a day. You can email me in case you want to share something with me. I want you not to forget me and the thread. Please keep the thread as active as possible. God willing, I will join you after the exam. I've missed you terribly.

Please pray for me. I need your prays.

All the best,
Behnam, 11 December, 2012

Dear Behnam,

You can't imagine how happy I got hearing you're sitting for Phd exam. I was always waitting for this news. :-D

You're wisdom and hard-working are always admirable. You can get the best result, I'm sure. When you focus on something you do it in a perfect way. You're real place is in the universities; I love to hear someday that you teach Physics in the best universities of Iran like Sharif and Tehran Universities!

Your success is my success, I pray for you my lovely clever friend. Just keep studying and be hopeful. :-)

Oh and I miss you aloooooooooot, take care of yourself and your family,

Best wishes,
Elham

Hi Noure,

Welcome to this thread and thank you for joining us.

We are here to kill problems! Physics and English won't be difficult for you anymore! We will help you kill these two powerful enemies; Physics and English difficulties! :lol: Just be with us and share your problems with us. Thank you once again for putting comment in this thread.

Would you mind introducing yourself? I guess you are a student and you are involved in different subjects at school. That's why you are complaining about Physics. :lol: :lol: As well as English, physics is kind and smooth, if you get to know this subject and go on well with it! :lol: Physics is language of the universe! We cannot interact with the universe without knowing it. Well, there are different types of interactions; active and passive. Therefore, I would have said, "we cannot interact actively with the universe without knowing its language-Physics." Similarly, we cannot make active and effective conversation with people in the world without knowing the English language. As a matter of fact, English is an international language. It is spoken widely in the world.

Anyway, let's make friends and help each other with all aspects of life. I hope so.

All the best,
Behnam, 15 December, 2012

P.S. Some friends keep asking me about the end of life on the Earth-three days darkness. As far as I know, this is not scientifically and physically defensible. Physics says, "WOW! Really? I don't know!" for such things! :lol:

Hi Freinds,

It was painful news today I heard from the TV news, a gun man attacked a school in Newtown of USA and opened fire , killed 27 people who 20 small children were among the murders.

This news makes all eyes wet while they imagine the innocent children and the situation they had, and there is one question in people's mind, why these children should be killed..?, Are the children victims of gun manufacturer owner selfishness, the selfish people who just thinks of their benefits even though 20 children will be killed, or even 170 citizens were being killed by gun during the last five years in USA.

Another question is that why USA government doesn't stop this gun manufacturer while today about 40% of people in USA have been armed with gun. I know that everybody knows the answer…

Another question which was made in my mind as a person who never visited USA is that " How much the USA is unsafe that people only can be alive there by having a gun at home!!!?"

Who has made the American society declined to this awful situation? Who are the authorized people in this society? Are they still so cheeky to speak about human rights in other countries while they are trampling the rights of esteemed American citizens for having a safe living?

I wish to offer my sympathy and condolence to victims 'family

The incident is tragic. Kill the innocent just to prove a point. This makes freedom a double edged sword. It has its positive and negative effect on our society. Not just in America.

Hi Espardo,

Many thanks for your comment. Thank you for joining us.

You are right, but late! Sorry, let me be rude enough to say that you are late my dear friend! Wisdom is knowing before experiencing! At least guessing before experiencing!

When we were criticizing about the unlimited(apparently unlimited) freedom in the West and its disadvantages, some people used to call us retro, undeveloped or things like that. Human beings are social creatures, so absolute freedom sounds ridiculous. An individual can be free as long as their freedom doesn't threaten my freedom. However, we are selfish. What can control my selfishness, greed and ambitiousness? You may say, 'laws', but who makes laws? People, yes, but what will happen if some selfish people make laws? This is one of the main drawbacks of the unrestricted(absolute) freedom.

I called it 'absolute freedom', but fact is something else. As a matter of fact, there is no freedom in the West? How? Well, when some singers, actors, actresses, fashion designers, football players, companies etc. keep telling us: This is what you like. This is what you must be like. This is what you look for. This is where you should go. This is what you should do. This is what you should wear, eat, ..." only brainwashed people believe that they are free! Nobody is free when thousands TV channels are continuously bombarding people with signals(forcing people to do in accordance with what is showed)! In fact, satellite TV channels make decision about our lives! When we are not allowed to think, without being biased towards something, it is slavery in a modern shape, not freedom!

That's absolutely right my dear friend, 'freedom is a two-edged sword', but I am sorry to say that 'you are late'! Many years ago, when we were warning the West over those disadvantages of materialist philosophy, some people used to laugh at us and call us black-haired, retro, unimproved, narrow-minded and things sort that! Wisdom is prevention from a tragedy, taking guess about the probable rain by looking at the cloudy sky and then taking umbrella! After getting wet under the rain, although looking for an umbrella sounds reasonable and logical, it is late!

What is the solution then? I have no time to write about the solution now. I have to leave. But, to say briefly, I believe, what human beings need for a good life(good life is moving towards perfection) is said by God(the creator of the entire universe) in the Holy books. The path is shown clearly and brightly. We have to practically follow God's instructions if we want a good life with good results. Otherwise, we will lose!

All the best,
Behnam, 16 December, 2012

Hi dear Behnam,

Hope your studies are going well. One of the most enjoyable things in the life is to understand and learn, when it comes to learning Physics the sweetness doubles. :-D Enjoy it dear. :-)

Thanks for your rich post above. I loved it. You have beautifully explained some delicate issues:
Human beings are social creatures, so absolute freedom sounds ridiculous. An individual can be free as long as their freedom doesn't threaten my freedom. However, we are selfish. What can control my selfishness, greed and ambitiousness? You may say, 'laws', but who makes laws? People, yes, but what will happen if some selfish people make laws? This is one of the main drawbacks of the unrestricted(absolute) freedom.
You are absolutely right. It's not a very difficult thing to understand, I wonder how some people ignore this point and want absolute freedom and claim it's their own right!!!

Wish you the best,
Elham

A big hi to all the friends here, especially to my dearest, most wise Ostad ever, Behnam! (ke emailasham javab nemide :D)

Since tonight would be a lovely one for Iranians, and I had missed my lovely friends here a lot, so I made time to both send warm regards and say a Happy Yalda to you all.

Wish you all merry times,

Hi friends,

Today is the last day of the autumn. It is the shortest day of the year, so tonight is the longest one in the year (Simple mathematics is used here, since 'Daytime+Nighttime=24'! When the first one comes down, the second one must go up! Hehehehehehe... :lol: )

Iranian people call the last night of fall 'Yalda Night'! They usually sit around, eat dry nuts and fruits(To speak precisely, it is better to say 'they used to sit around and... These days mobile phones and computers don't leave free time for people to sit around together!'). {-:

You can notice that 'Yalda Night' is celebrated in some countries around Iran such as Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, etc. too. Well, in the past those countries used to belong to Iran. This means that 'Yalda Night' is an ancient traditional ceremony.

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a very warm 'Happy Yalda Night' to all Persian people! I wish you happy moments with your families. The weather is cold(the mountains and the shades are covered with snow in this part of Tehran), but I wish you warmness and long life.

I'd like to mention to a very nice saying in Farsi which is related to the last day of autumn. When some people make promise, or speak proudly about their plans and great success in the future, or when they are happy and satisfied with their short-term success, people often say 'chicks must be counted in the end of autumn'! It is maybe a little bit similar to 'don't count your chickens before they're hatched'! I am not sure! :lol:

Anyway, I hope today you have counted your chickens and have found out that you've got many of them; none of them is eaten by fox, none of them is killed by other enemies. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Finally, I'd like to say a warm 'Hello' to my dearest old friend Kami! How are you Kamelia? I hope you are happy and healthy. Thank you very much for visiting this site on such a lovely day. Happy 'Yalda Night' to you and to your family. You made me happy with your post! Thank you very much indeed. Kami is always in my thoughts!

I am sharing emails with all friends. Don't you receive emails from me? Come on! Stop kidding! LOL

Oh, something has been forgotten yet! Today(tonight in fact, according to what my mother says! "It was 'Yalda Night' and the weather was cold. People were together, but I was in a hospital to give birth to Behnam, and I did it!", my mother often says! LOL...) is my birthday. Happy Birthday Behnam! :lol: :lol: :lol:



HAPPY 'YALDA NIGHT'!


All the best,

Hi Friends

Congratulations on Yalda night,This is longest night Iranian solar year. Yalda Night as called in the Persian solar calendar is a night with especial ceremonies. Families get together on Yalda Night at the home of the elders until after midnight. They are served with dried fruits, nuts, and fruits like pomegranates and watermelons. I had to come back home from my father in law-house because of my terrible stomachache .. :lol: :lol:

Hi friends,

How are you?

I have got some questions to make this thread active, please share me your opinions:

Why many things just happen in our imagination and can't happen in the real life? Do you think that if our imagination came true, that will make us happy?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear?

I think that if our imagination came true, that will make us happy but it's although depends on the ability of this imagination to be realty.
Some of our dreams are so big and hart to be achieved because of our society or Riches or potentials, but some of our dreams are in hands if we seek to achieve them.
There is no imagination can be real without work on, as we work we achieve and this is the golden rule here.
I hope my opinion could be useful and convincing.

Have nice days...

Dear Amal,

What a nice question you have asked! Why many things can just happen in our imagination???

I actually wanna thank you. Your post made me sit here and make a lovely dream!
I had seen a mail full of pictures from winter and snow; reading your post I just imagined it has snowed here as well,and I went walking outdoors.... something very sweet happened there! What? Emmmm, oh sorry, you're not allowed there! It's secret! :lol:

What a great blessing it is, to dream! You can experience many impossible things there. I love it, oh, I love it. I live with it! Thank god, thank god........

Maybe things are even much better in reality! Who knows? Let's be positive! {-;
I often imagine myself meeting my dear friends whom I've never seen.It makes me very happy. One of my dreams is to meet Amal and take part in her wedding ceremony! I'm sure it would be as sweet as my imagination, no doubt! :-D

I'm just worried about sth. Is it wrong to live with dreams? Can it harm??? Emmmm...

Thanks for reading,

Wish you a happy warm winter,
Elham

In my opinion, if our imagination come true, that wont make us happier because I think that no matter how big our imagination was but it still narrow and our knowledge is naive.. I believe that what god choose for us is the best and for sure god knowledge is very wide.

Sometimes, we go through a lot of bad thing " as we callit or imagine" but in fact they aren't.
Sometimes god prevents something "we wish or we want" just to give us something more beautiful, a lesson or to test our faith.

Eli! Ohh my god, imagine that you came to my wedding party.. Ohh, what a disaster it would happened! {-:
I would forget all about the groom, the people there and the party and sit and speak with you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, I would be very happy if you came to my wedding party!!! it would be the best and happier day in my life.

Ohhhh!!!!!! I wanttttt to marry!!! I wanttt a maaaan any maaaan, Please please god please send a man to me cause I miss Elham and I am dying to meet her!!!!!!! :-( :-( :-(

Kidding a side, you know, dear, if I really want to get married this is because I want you to be happy and because someone had promised me to dance in my wedding day!!! Ohh, I was verrry happy when I heard that, what would happened to me if it became a reality?!! Imagine that!!!
I really want you to be happy..

In the end, I wish your life is more beautiful than what you have ever imagined and dreamed!

Best wishes,
Amal

Hi Amal,

How is it going? I hope all is going well with you. Unfortunately, I am busy with books these days. I am studying hard. I go to bed at about 24 almost every night. I never watch TV. I just check my mailbox and reply to some emails in case I am in the mood or have time. I love writing about your topic-imagination. That's an interesting topic. Alas, I cannot(and don't want actually) to switch from Quantum Mechanics into imagination! :lol:

Today I studied chapter 4 of 'Modern Quantum Mechanics' by J.J Sakurai. It concerns 'Symmetry in Quantum Mechanics'. This night(after posting this post) I am studying chapter 5 which is about 'Approximation Methods'. Actually, this chapter is mostly about 'Perturbation Theory'.

Please search the Net for that book and take a glance at it; just to see what I am studying these days.

It is not fair to stay silent when a good friend has introduced a topic for discussion. According to Albert Einstein, "Imagination is more important than knowledge...". Yes, it is, but it cannot be true for all people! A hungry person will imagine eating some delicious food and fresh fruits! :lol: Girls often fantasize about their future life and imaginary husband...! Children usually dream about things that they wish to have. However, I guess Einstein means scientists, researchers, designers, or people who are involved in brain-based things. Anyway, sometimes imagination gives us hope and encourages us; makes us determined in achieving our goals. That's positive side of it!

The world would be funny if our imagination comes true. Right know, I am imagining something, or imagining doing something...Oh, let's forget it! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Happy New Year!

All the best,
Behnam, 31 December, 2012

Hi Friends,

How are you? I hope all is going well with you. I've missed you very much.

It is Thursday, and a religious holiday in Iran. I was studying, but got tired of it. I came here to write something and to take some rest AND then to do some relaxation! I need it, you know, studying continuously makes the brain tired.

Last night, a very kind friend of mine sent me a message and wanted me to get online and have some chat. I did it. After about one month, it was a great chat-a tiredness removing one!

Let me speak about my schedule. Until 8th of January, I will study 'Advanced Quantum Mechanics'. I am studying last chapters which are extremely difficult. Last two chapters are about 'Identical Particles' and 'Scattering Theory'. These chapters, especially the latter one, are very difficult. Anyway, I have to finish this subject by 8th of January.

From 8th of January to 8th of February, I am studying 'Classical Electrodynamics' by Jakson. This subject is complicated too, but I am rather good at it. In the world of Physics 'Classical Electrodynamics' by Jakson and 'Advanced Quantum Mechanics' by Sakurai are well-known. You can easily find them on the Net. These books are taught-as text books- at many universities in the world.

From 8th of February to 7th of March, I am studying 'Modern Physics' which is simple(one week time is enough for this subject) and revising 'Quantum Mechanics'! Finally, on Friday, 8th of March, I am sitting for the most important exam in my life. Please pray for me.

You should know, the exam consists five modules, 'Professional English', 'Educational talent(intelligence)', 'Quantum Mechanics', 'Electrodynamics' and 'Modern Physics'. You should also know, I am going to study 'Photonics', which is a branch in Applied Physics. Candidates who are going to study Physics have 'Statistical Mechanics' instead of 'Modern Physics'. Other modules are the same. I don't study the first two subjects! I have no plan for them. Hehehe...

I guess, according to the last year leaflet published by the relevant organization, 30 people will be allowed to study 'Photonics'! This course is held Only at a few universities in Iran. Therefore, it is a stiff competition for candidates. It should be said that the exam covers 50 percent of the total score. The verbal interview specifies half of the total score. Some people believe that the interview specifies total score! They say, "Professors who are interviewing give good marks to their favourite candidates"! This is not fair, but who cares?

Unfortunately, the university that I've received my MSc degree-Sharif University of Technology- doesn't hold my chosen course-Photonics. Therefore, I have little chance to be accepted by interviewers at other universities(Four Universities in all over Iran). However, I am a determined person. I never let negative thoughts and false assumptions hinder me from trying. If I put my mind to something, I finish it. Nothing can stop me! Oh Oh Oh! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dear friends, let me digress for a moment. I wanted to write "I am an experienced Physics student.' rather than 'I am a determined person'! However, the first sentence seems odd. A student cannot be experienced. Teachers can be experienced, but students cannot. Students are better to be described by some adjectives like 'studious', 'hardworking', ...! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

My wife is calling me for lunch. I have to dash quickly. Sorry for making mistakes.

All the best,
Behnam, 3 January, 2013

Oh.. it's very fast.. .guau, you are a machine so fast when you write,it's wonderful.. yes, the contrast is great because you can compare what you like more or less, so depens sometimes of day and you emotion in each case, ... about God, I think the own experience does that you feel his presence or maybe not.. but I think that have to be anything more... but sometimes I don't know how talk you... did you have any experience like? thanks for your fantastic words!!

Thanks Behnam, I have found out this quote and I think that it's answer with last text.. it's ok..

I am an student, my English is terrible, but thanks for your words, I am proud.. :-), about the seasons, I have every seasons, and maybe for this reason I prefer one, only my opinion in this moment... about people unknow the 4 seasons... maybe they talk us about avaintages about having only one season.. I don't know, maybe a skimal thinks that other people is happier because enjoy of more stations? I don't know..I think that it's great that you like every seasons, it shows a nice sense, because you enjoy sun, win, rain, in each season.. I enjoy it too, but I have nice remimber (I don't know how write it... Sorry) in Summer...And yes, for me it's impossible living without 4 seasons... how I won't be able witout birds, ...English is hard for me.. apologies for my mistakes...

Every answer will be banal!
Anyway....I like all seasons because everyone of them has something special in colours and smells.

Sometimes I think how is living in the tropics where we cannot enjoy of the 4 seasons.

Do you think it is possible to realise the passing of the years without seasons?

Dear Behnam,

How are you my determined hard-working friend? Hope you and your family are healthy and happy, spending a warm winter. :-)

Thanks for your report on your schedule. It's so nice that you are busy with such great and sweet Physics lessons. Just enjoy it. Being busy with the world of the science is enjoyable, specially when you are wise and love your major that much ! Hope you success*

Emmm, I'm afraid to say I don't agree with you on " experienced student" !!! If a teacher can be experienced in teaching, a student can also be experienced in studying!!! For example an English student who's been studying English for 10 years, could certainly be called 'experienced' in comparison to the one who's just started his courses! After 10 years being involved in learning English, now he is experienced; he knows how to study English, how to use dictionary, how to memorize a new word, how to practice,what to expect from the teacher, what is more important to learn, what is things he needs to be careful about while speaking and writing, he is more careful about the grammar, he has been with English for a long time so less and more he is familiar with this language, he has applied it in his life and has experience using it and so on!
I think these are good reasons for being called an experienced student! {-; {-:

I call myself an experienced English student and I believe it dose make sense. :-)

Many thanks for your great posts. I read your last post carefully and I believe you are experienced in English. You know how to use what you know from English VERY well. Well done*

Wish you all success again,
Elham

Hi Elham,

Many thanks for your post. I really enjoyed reading it. Thank you once again for your positive words.

I used to care about English, but these days I am studying some subjects which are related to my field of study. Therefore, I am forgetting English little by little, AND I don't care! I really don't care!

Undoubtedly, 'I am an experienced English student' makes sense, and people understand what is meant by that. However, it is not beautiful! I personally see some beauty in English correct structures and sentences. I seldom memorize grammar. At high school, for instance, I used to use this method(looking for a sort of beauty in a sentence) and answer grammar-based questions. Most of the time, I was right. Well, my marks(results) can be the clearest evidence of what I am claiming. I was a successful student when it came to the English language.

For an interviewer, it is not difficult to know our English level. As soon as we open our mouth and say something, they realise which level we are at. In order to give some information about our English activities we can say, "I have been learning English for 10 years"! Or we can say, "I have taken part in some English courses in such and such institute..." I am sure, you know much better than me how to handle an interview.

According to a Persian poem, "Cho bini na bina o chah ast, agar khamush benshini gonah ast". I reacted, maybe unkindly, to 'I am an experience..", because, I believe this sentence isn't beautiful, although it makes sense. This sentence seemed odd to my brain, and it automatically and unwillingly looked for some mistakes in the sentence. Strangely, my brain found the pronunciation wrong and the structure unusual. You can ask, "why did your brain look for some mistakes instead of looking for some positive things?" I don't know, but I guess it was just because of the situation.

I received some unkindness and insult after this correction! }: However, you should know, I still believe that there is something wrong with 'I am an experienced English student'! I do believe that you treated me unfairly! }: }: I wish I could 'put some watermelon under your armpit' by praising and admiring you for using that sentence[not for getting some benefits from you since all people know that I never look for someone's benefits] in order to be far from this injured feelings. I wish I could be silent, without any judgement, although in many cases silence leads to disloyalty in friendship! I made a very big mistake, but got some useful lessons! That's OK! }: }: }:

All the best,
Behnam, 5 January, 2013

Oh Behnam!!!!! :!!: :!!: :!!: :!!: :!!: :!!: :!!:

I'm really shocked by your post and words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Insult and unkindness????????????????????? For what??????????? For correcting a simple mistake? Just for correcting a wrong pronunciation?????????????????? Oh my god!!!!!!!!! Who believes so?????????

I really don't understand what you mean! Your post clearly shows that there is a BIG MISUNDERSTANDING! I'm so sorry to hear such words by you! :-( :-( :-(

Who believes that Elham would be unkind and insult just for his friend has correct her mistake???? It's so unfair of you to think and say so. You made me really upset.

Ok!!!

Good luck,
Eli

"it's been said that everlasting friends go long periods of time without speaking and never question their friendship. These friends pick up phones like they just spoke yesterday, regardless of how long it has been or how far away they live, and they don't hold grudges. They understand that life is busy and you will always love them." -from the net-

Behnam, I know that you love me and I know that you are busy but I just miss you.. :-(

Hi golden-hearted Amal,

How are you? I hope you are happy and healthy; enjoying every minute of your life. So many thanks for your kind posts. I've missed you too. Silence or being out of sight doesn't mean that you are forgotten by me. You are always in my thoughts. So sorry that I am too busy to be punctual as I used to be. This won't last more than two months. I promise, in March, the situation will be ordinary as it was. :lol:

Thank you once again for your email. It wasn't exactly true, but something like that. Got it? I hope so! :lol:

No Behnam, I didn't get it since I am not as smart as you are and physics and the law of the possibilities aren't my favourite subjects.. :lol: :lol:

Anyway, the wrong is the last letter?! The whole name?! OR I should give up trying?! For you, I am sure that it is the last one, :lol: :lol: but NO please tell me, I really want to know, I don't want to do anything with it but I just want to check if the program is working!!! {-:

Emm, till March?! Emmm, if you find me alive till that time, then it's OK, come and chat with me. You willlllllllll killllllllllll me sooooooooooooooooooon. :-x :-x :-x :-x :-x

Hi Estela,

That's nice reading from you. Thank you very much for writing in this thread. Please write more about yourself. I like reading about you.

By the way, your English is very good. Don't underestimate yourself. Oh, would you please write something about the philosophy 'showing red rags to bulls' in your country? Why do people like that dangerous game? I see your festivals different from other regions. Why?

Hi Behnam,

How are you?

Dear when we chat last time we were speaking about something very important and I was tired so I didn't tell you about my news... In fact, I am working as a teacher these days!!!!!!!!!! :-D

Last week my uncle told me that a manager of a school wants some teachers to work there so I went and met her.. During the meeting she asked me if I had free time then she continued that why don't you start today and try if you liked the job or not and in this way we too can see if you are appropriate for the it or not. I was verrrrrrrry surprised cause I knew nothing about the subjects or the classes which I had to teach but I hesitantly agreed...

So, she let me teach math for fourth grade students... they were very smart and I didn't had any difficulties with teaching them but there was a student who is verrry active and if you didn't make him busy with solving things, he would do a loooooot of noises. At the beginning, I didn't know how to focus on teaching other students and keeping him busy all the time too. On the other hand, there was another student called "Yaman" who was very calm and love to study,In fact I haven't seen any conscious, interested and dedicated kid as much as he is!

After I finished the lesson, I didn't know if they will hire me or not.. All what I had to do is to wait till the next day and wait there call..

The next day when I entered the institute, Yaman and Omar were having a class but they saw me and you can't imagine how happy they were, a big smile were on their faces, we started to wave to each other and I asked them about their previous ecxams results and thank god they had full marks! :-D
To say the truth, at that moment, I didn't know who was happier, me or them, I was glad that they remembered me and were happy to see me again.. My heart was really beating verrrrry fast, I wished I can hug and kiss them...
However, my mom said to me " Amal! don't act like a kid and don't smile a lot, let them respect and fear you!!!"
So I tried to hide my happiness and act like old people. But it seems that it doesn't work cause I don't know who the kid is me or them! :lol: :lol:

Ohhh my god!!! I am in love with those kids and I miss them a looooooot!!! Ohh my god!! They are like angels, in the lessons I just sit and stare at their eyes!!!

Today, I didn't teach them cause the manager wants me to give math lessons to a boy in the 8th grade cause he has exam tomorrow but in reality my heart was with them. :-( I wish I could teach them forever!

Dear, I don't know if they wants me to work there just during the exams weeks or to stay even after them but I am trying to enjoy and learn from this experience as much as I can!

Another thing came to my mind while watching the other married teachers is that how can they manage their time and not be sooo tired from the job. Meanwhile, I -as a single girl- who has no husband nor children to take care of and doesn't have to clean or cook, find it an exhausting job??!!! :shock: :shock:

I was really sad for their children cause they ignored them and gave their full attention to the students!!! :-(

So finally, I came to a conclusion, if I got married, I would like to spend that time at my home and try to teach my own children instead of teaching others', no matter how that cost!!!

In the end, sorry if I talked a loooooooot but you know that I love to share my news with you.
Please pray for me.

Wish you the best,
Amal

Hi Amal,

WOW! I'm writing to a kind teacher now! Oh my God! I cannot believe it! Congratulations on this great success! You deserve it Amal. You can be a very effective and successful teacher. I am so happy about it and so proud of you.

Please write about your new experience to us. I am sure, everyday you are experiencing a new thing in this job. Thankfully, the students are young. Therefore, the love between you and your students is safe. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Love is more dangerous than a hungry lion! Don't trust it at all. It may seem silence and quiet at the first glance, but all of a sudden it may jump over and kill victims. No matter how large or powerful an animal is. Lions know how to beat them! {-: {-: {-:

I like hearing from you.

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear?

What I read in your last post it's made me so happy for you. Go on dear and may God bliss you, protect you, and lead you to the right direction.
From my experience I advice you to balance between seriousness and passion with the students specially the boys because this generation is older than it's age.

I hope you are fine and have nice days...

Hi kind Amal,

How are you? I hope you are happy and healthy. I've missed you terribly.

Thank you for your posts. I guess you are reading a book these days, and you are only interested in odd pages! There are even pages too. Don't ignore them! Hehehehehehehe.... :lol: :lol: :lol: {-:

You cannot imagine how much I've missed you and other friends. Unfortunately, I am busy with studying for exam these days. I don't spend time with my friends as I used to do. I have to study harder, since many subjects are still left. By the way, I keep forgetting things. I think I am getting old! }: I have to revise the studied books. However, I will be back. I'm sure, the spring will come and the nightingale will sing again. Stay with me, be patient. I'm sure, happy days will come! Crying.....


I love hearing about you. Please keep in contact with me.

All the best,

Hi friends,

I have got many things to share with you. However, I am not in the mood for writing. On the other hand, time is my biggest enemy these days. I spend almost all my free time on challenging with difficult subjects in books! It is too difficult to cope with problems in different areas in life. I am sure you know it yourself. Those difficulties prevent you from concentrating on studying. I don't know how to say it in a simple way. It is like fighting in many battles. When your attention, ability and energy are unwillingly divided you cannot win or achieve your goals.

Goals are like vectors in the vector-space. They have different direction. When setting our goals, we must be careful with the direction of them. Sometimes, goals are in the same direction, or the angle between them is small. Therefore, adding them results in a larger vector. However, sometimes goals are ill-oriented. They cancel each other. Adding them may result in a smaller vector or even nothing!

If we consider people as vectors in the vector-space, we can get some interesting results by studying these vectors with applying basic maths. For example, making friends with someone is like adding two vectors with each other. What is the result? Adding two vectors gives a vector which can be smaller, larger than both of them or even zero! The size of the result depends on the sizes of two vectors and COSINE of the angle between them! This cosine is extremely important! It can be zero, positive and negative.

Friendship among people is quite similar to the relationship between vectors. It is worth spending some time on vectors! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sometimes, phase difference between two system can be described by that angle. In fact, that angle causes two systems to be either in phase or out of phase with each other. I think you got the point.

Surely, people are different from vectors. Undoubtedly, human beings are much more complicated than some abstract ideas. However, in many cases, making an analogy helps. At least, it simplifies problems.

In the world of human beings, what that angle is; which the effective parameters are, and how those parameters evolve! This is another story. I may write something about it in the future.

All the best,

Hi Behnam...

How are you my older brother?

I loved your comparison between friends and vectors. Yeah my dear, you can see or find or use maths every ware. Me as a mathematician, I agree with all what you said.
In talking about forgetting things, It's because of physical or psychological stress and I suffer from this issue. We have to focus on what we are studding and ignore other things.
I pray to God for you and all my dear friends to achieve your goals and be happy so don't forget me from your prays please.

Have nice days...

Hi friends,

About five years ago, I downloaded and read the following poem. At that time I took something from it, but today I read it again. I feel this time I understand it better than before. This poem should be memorized by everybody. I am sharing it with my friends through email, thread, .... I hope you will enjoy reading it. It is really worth spending some time on memorizing this poem.

All the best,
Behnam, 21 January, 2013

********************************************


The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but
have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller
families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less
sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a
living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've
been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street
to meet a new neighbour. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've
done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but
polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write
more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to
rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to
produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods, and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are
days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to
quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to
you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just
hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your
side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is
the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from
deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for
someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to
speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Hi Wilzin,

How are you my dear fried and young brother? I hope all is going well with you and you are enjoying every minute of your life.

I am happy that the poem has made you think about a proper tittle. Yes, I agree with you. "Last Time" is a nice name; meaningful and in agreement with our religious belief about life at the end of the history of humanity.

Wilzin, it is very nice to read your posts. Please write more about yourself. As you may know, I am studying for my PhD exam. I am busy with books these days. That's why I am not as active as I used to be. However, this time will come to end. I will join you soon. Please keep this little candle's flame burning.

All the best,
Behnam, 22 January, 2013

Hi friends,

Hope you are all fine and happy, enjoying your lives. Although I'm not missed by anybody here, I miss you and writing in my beloved forum. :lol:

These days, I'm busy with some projects in university, I go to English class and try different recipes at home. Seems I've found one of my most favorite activities in life,I love cooking. Sometimes family members give me hope and say " Wow, you would be a skillful cook", sometimes they make me disappointed saying "oh, never cook this again"! It's just the first steps, I have to keep on trying again and again to make a good chef.Practice makes perfect.YES.
Emmm, I know there's somebody here who will say " Hehehe, try but a Fars woman never can cook like an Azerbaijani woman." ! Okkkkkkk, I know, you are right, I agree! :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's so soon but I can smell spring today.However, I'm not happy with it!An unexpected spring ,before smelling winter fully, is not pleasant. To me, winter means snow and it's two years that from winter I just experience it's coldness. :-( Do you think it's too late for a snow fall? Do you think it's too optimistic of me to hope for it now?
NO NO, I don't lose my hope, I need it. I need some snow fall, some healing snow fall! Some heart-warming snow fall! Some heart-some snow fall! I'll pray for it, like children I keep my fingers crossed for it and ask god to send some snow down just for me, why not? :lol:

Sometimes I wonder why I don't pray as much as I used to before!!! Isn't it beautiful to keep your request hands up and hopefully pray for what you really need, when you know there's somebody sooooooooo kind up there hearing you, the one who's able to do every every every thing?
There are two things I love the most among things a human can do; loving and praying! Ok ok....

I read sth about praying, I'm going to share it with you.


PRAY

- If you don’t believe in prayers, then ask somebody to pray for you. You don’t have to be a too religious person to pray. Nobody needs to know that you are praying. It is a relationship between you and our heavenly Father. Express yourself. Say it through prayer. A prayer should always be our first recourse rather than our last resort.

If you feel that two of your friends are fighting over something . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your friend because he has betrayed you . . . so Pray.

If you feel that your relationship has been strained because of harsh words . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your mom because she favors your other siblings over you . . . so Pray

If you feel that you hate your boss because he is too strict and shouts often . . . so Pray

If you feel that your fiancée or husband is cheating over you . . . so Pray

If you feel that you were hurt . . . so Pray

A bible verse in Philippians 4:6 says “In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Nothing is more powerful than a sincere prayer to mend a broken relationship.


Let's pray for each other* :-)

Wish you all the best,
Elham

For all those times you stood by me ♥
For all the truth that you made me see ♥
For all the joy you brought to my life ♥
For all the wrong that you made right ♥
For every dream you made come true ♥
For all the love I found in you ♥
I'll be forever thankful ♥
You're the one who held me up ♥
Never let me fall ♥
You're the one who saw me through through it all ♥

You were my strength when I was weak ♥
You were my voice when I couldn't speak ♥
You were my eyes when I couldn't see ♥
You saw the best there was in me ♥
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach ♥
You gave me faith 'coz you believed ♥
I'm everything I am ♥
Because you loved me ♥
You gave me wings and made me fly ♥
You touched my hand I could touch the sky ♥
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me ♥
You said no star was out of reach ♥
You stood by me and I stood tall ♥
I had your love I had it all ♥
I'm grateful for each day you gave me ♥
Maybe I don't know that much ♥
But I know this much is true ♥
I was blessed because I was loved by you ♥

You were always there for me ♥
The tender wind that carried me ♥
A light in the dark shining your love into my life ♥
You've been my inspiration ♥
Through the lies you were the truth ♥
My world is a better place because of you ♥

I'm everything I am ♥

Because you loved me ♥

Thanks for being my friend.. My great friend and for sure you know yourself. {-;
