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

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;

Hi Amal & Elham...

How are you my dears friends?!

Thanks for your replays. They made me so happy and gave my a potion of positive energy. :-D
I Promise you to do the best I can to achieve my dream. Now I have a clear path in my life. I will go forward and nothing will stop me except death.
I'm very glad to say that "I have a dream". :-)

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
