    My Mindset

    http://jamesallen.wwwhubs.com/think.htm As a man thinketh. Thought in the mind hath made us. What we are By thought we wrought and built. If a man's mind Hath evil thoughts, pain comes on him as comes The wheel the ox behind . . . If one endure in purity of thought joy follows him as his own shadow - sure.
  5. Stop being jealous. A muslim female and a non muslim female are incidentally FEMALE. We do not know the circumstances of how two people meet or the experiences of the journies that take us in the round about of existence. The responses are very poor. The imitation of religiousity or rather the exposure of the self's intellectual and religious affirmity is not really compelling in solving the problem at hand. considering that the opinions of the mentioned individuals thiestic affirmation being concluded to be incorrect while the op admits to be correct via authority that the responders adhere too. Regarding fasting, incidentally many fitness gurus claim it to work wonders for body building. they call it intermittent fasting. Type this in google . scientific benefits of fasting. C Also consider those who go on to raw diets, juice diets, simple diets, keto diets, what are they all doing? They are removing radicals from the body and the aim is to regenerate and start a new. This is what fasting does once a year. Regeneration and removal of the old self to the new self. A good example in relation to this is by nassim taleb. He sited an example that to cure diabetes, it would be more efficent to place the diabetic in a desert environment living on 500 calories to cure the illness, but that would not be profitable for big pharma. So they give us drugs for monies. What you are expecting is a change of from old behavior to a new mode of behavior. Especially in terms of adopting new habits, customs and even bodily movements. You both need to study everything academically and take having children out of the equation. Life isn't as simple as following or having a belief in a diety. the objective is to understand the reasons for belief and practice. she may have adopted islam on the basis of personal needs, being human at that. The young want to run before they can walk, full of fire and passion and become blind to the realities that await them. Again, it is from the same causes and by the same means that every virtue is both produced and destroyed, and similarly every art; for it is from playing the lyre that both good and bad lyre-players are produced. And the corresponding statement is true of builders and of all the rest; men will be good or bad builders as a result of building well or badly. For if this were not so, there would have been no need of a teacher, but all men would have been born good or bad at their craft. This, then, is the case with the virtues also; by doing the acts that we do in our transactions with other men we become just or unjust, and by doing the acts that we do in the presence of danger, and being habituated to feel fear or confidence, we become brave or cowardly. The same is true of appetites and feelings of anger; some men become temperate and good-tempered, others self-indulgent and irascible, by behaving in one way or the other in the appropriate circumstances. Thus, in one word, states of character arise out of like activities. This is why the activities we exhibit must be of a certain kind; it is because the states of character correspond to the differences between these. It makes no small difference, then, whether we form habits of one kind or of another from our very youth; it makes a very great difference, or rather all the difference. We must take as a sign of states of character the pleasure or pain that ensues on acts; for the man who abstains from bodily pleasures and delights in this very fact is temperate, while the man who is annoyed at it is self-indulgent, and he who stands his ground against things that are terrible and delights in this or at least is not pained is brave, while the man who is pained is a coward. For moral excellence is concerned with pleasures and pains; it is on account of the pleasure that we do bad things, and on account of the pain that we abstain from noble ones. Hence we ought to have been brought up in a particular way from our very youth, as Plato says, so as both to delight in and to be pained by the things that we ought; for this is the right education.

    His fan base is off the peasant class. In times of turmoil, the voice that speaks to the people becomes the leader. He tries to implant rationalism and is against the status quo of certain forms of censorship or rules. He isn't just against Islam, there are many issues he is against. But videos as such, bring in the nationalist. Another mistake of his, in trying to jump into waters he does not understand. That is generally the foolishness of western academics. They see eastern works from a westerners perspective, blind while learning, without a clear mind. However, he does need someone with intellect to challenge his knowledge on Islam or many other subjects. The problem is where are they?. I am sure he can be emailed. Plenty of academics here. I believe he him self is struggling with his own demons and is very adapt as using his skills in manipulation. No one can be exempt from their own imagination.
  7. peasants in their natural place. Look at the bright side, many of them will eventually be in prison or live a life of crime or have low income wages and die virgins. many of the boys in that video come from low income poor backgrounds. Hence they still have the gangsta ghetto mind, irrelevant of which group they adhere too. .Rule number one, always be careful of the mob. The mob has one mind. The mind is dictated by the most daring or foolish.

    Would you befriend a Wahhabi?

    Clearly you guys arent thinking about the dilemma. But the verses your used, outlines my point. It is either a forceful belief system or it isnt . Follow the rules or burn. The same ideology is then practiced by many factions through out the earth, be it democrazy, communism or whatever new system is conjured up. The pattern and rules are always the same.

    Would you befriend a Wahhabi?

    Reflect upon this scentence of yours. You are practically stating that, If X state Y as being true, and I deny it, it implies it is my fault for my own demise. Considering humans comes in many intellectual forms added with personal motives. That is the dilemma of reality.

    When God revealed Himself to Sartre

    that could be one interpretation. All I see is the feeling of guilt from perhaps his early experience from the church. That feeling of guilt is what he seems to refer to as God. Fear of the invisible. He does use the word indignation. The scenario is about doing whatone wishes, and covering up the tracks, but where does this feeling of guilt stem from. Havent read nagal or satre, might dig into them. although these days such works are boring.

    make sure you have some tissues next to you. Thanks for letting us know how you feel. I am sure the oppressed feel the same way, while starring at their empty existence. Don't worry we can throw them some supplications to keep them busy until the pain is over.

    Would you befriend a Wahhabi?

    another comical apparition. Statements as such proclaim the motives of why atheism is so prevelant. That the thiestic God is playing a terrible game with its own creation, but appears like a tyrannical human and as such, the innate nature of mankind, expects a good God, saintly in that matter, however it doesnt seem so, therefore the belief in a creator is based on the premise that tyranny awaits if praise and appellation isnt given.

    explain, your opinion on this matter. sounds rather a childish delusion to me. Knowing that A) God looked at him , B) turns aways when he took the opposite direction.

    Dr Jordan Peterson thread *Change your life*

    who did you hear it from?. If we follow your logic of I heard it from X then if it is true, then we can assume he follows your logic on islam based on I heard and read it from X. There is nothing right wing about him, it is just his followers who find him standing up for their delusonal white power or christiondom. A revival of their lost ethics or way of life. I am assuming his large fan base is composed of those in the lower brackets of society. Everyone needs a hero to guide them some time in their life, JP is the current one and eventually someone else will come, who will reuse the old texts in a different way. I have drilled 25+ lectures of his in the last few weeks, his general sympathy is towards the Jews in auschwitz ( he seems to forget a large part of history, about how the yanky doodle firms had ties with Hitler and co ), his hatred towards the behavior of the nazis and the communists. He does mention Isis a few times. Generally he is more concerned about human behaviorism and the effects of poor choices based on irrational or emotive decision making, and explains it rationally while also associating it to religion. Meaning, he explains that religions or ancient texts outlines what psychoanalysis figured out through testing. Those who havent studied religion or ancient text, find this as new profound knowledge, although the ancient sages and philosophers have already explained it all. Although after removing the rose tinted glasses, we have to realise he is just promoting his religion, his ideas and making good money off it.

    Judgmental Shias

    I didn't know that he reads SC. It is great that you A) Are learning from JP . B) That you want to improve relationships online C) sad, that you are forgetting the principles of reality. Humans disagree because there are two apposing parties with different intellectual levels. So the only way to achieve peace is, either one party forces them selves to be surbodinates and increase the ego of the other, or we go WAR and fight it out, until there are a few left, who decide how history is written. WAR WAR WAR!!! I will add some quotes to appear ambiguous and mysterious for my fans. The best way of avenging thyself is not to become like the wrong doer. On the occasion of every act ask thyself, How is this with respect to me? Shall I repent of it? A little time and I am dead, and all is gone. What more do I seek, if what I am now doing is work of an intelligent living being, and a social being, and one who is under the same law with God? Remember that to change thy opinion and to follow him who corrects thy error is as consistent with freedom as it is to persist in thy error. For it is thy own, the activity which is exerted according to thy own movement and judgement, and indeed according to thy own understanding too. Short-lived are both the praiser and the praised, and the rememberer and the remembered: and all this in a nook of this part of the world; and not even here do all agree, no, not any one with himself: and the whole earth too is a point. If thou canst see sharp, look and judge wisely, says the philosopher. In the constitution of the rational animal I see no virtue which is opposed to justice; but I see a virtue which is opposed to love of pleasure, and that is temperance. M.A

    #30 Knowledge or Money?

    Neither are related or tangible but are dependent on their particular context. A rich man living in comfort will take the knowledge as he is adding something he lacks. A poor man, will take wealth as both comfort and pleasure are the first principles that man follows. Now each man judges well the things he knows, and of these he is a good judge. And so the man who has been educated in a subject is a good judge of that subject, and the man who has received an all-round education is a good judge in general. Hence a young man is not a proper hearer of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end aimed at is not knowledge but action. And it makes no difference whether he is young in years or youthful in character; the defect does not depend on time, but on his living, and pursuing each successive object, as passion directs. For to such persons, as to the incontinent, knowledge brings no profit; but to those who desire and act in accordance with a rational principle knowledge about such matters will be of great benefit. The life of money-making is one undertaken under compulsion, and wealth is evidently not the good we are seeking; for it is merely useful and for the sake of something else. Aristotle

    Iranians Openly Declare Atheism

    Some Iranians, just like Some indians, pakistanis, arabs, africans, eskimos, aliens. Statistics, not OMG !!! the earth is on twitter! but a percentage of the human populace.
  23. The marriage isnt legal and its already void as it was done under duress, which means without consent. It is irrelevant whether the men who did it were adornng the clothes of authority. A crime is a crime and in many places religion is run as a business. If you want evidence. www.al-islam.org and research the marriage and divorce guidlines to use as evidence. She does need to be depressed, about the sham marriage as it wasnt a marriage in the first place. It it time to let go of cultural shame as it really is a non existent entity that has been given validity via false authority.

    It is blue lipstick from today on!

    If you read or study anthropology, both attire and makup are nothing but the attempt at sexualising one self. I always questioned as to why women need to put makeup?. Consider that a person wakes up and before going out or while on public transport they are painting their faces? Do they not even question why are they doing it?.

    i dont like living

    Open Youtube - Type Jordan Peterson then spend the whole week listening to his lectures. Then realise you have two choices in life. Life is hard as he says, so did schopenhauer before him. Hopefully you can figure out what you need to do to live. I use JP as he is the new trend.
