Yeah @hasanhh that's not good enough, considering you were once contemplating on babysitting Shiachat.

Why will l want to teleport if, inshallah, l get there? There is no place better, so where would l go?

I remember why did I make that post. My sister stopped my mother from using disposable dry cloths to clean the floor because disposable cloths are bad for environment. Now my mother has to use regular cloth and she has to  wash it and use it again. My sister forces my family members to make many small changes because she 'cares' about environment. I think she is just a cruel person who likes to make life difficult for others. When I saw my mother no longer uses disposable cloth, I became angry that why does my sister care about environment but doesn't care about her old mother? My mother became angry at me and over the weekend, I had a fight with both my parents. In the end I was left thinking what did I do wrong? 

Everyone keeps giving me lectures about respect for parents. I am shocked to see how my sister treats my mother and gets away with it. People seriously believe that my sister is 'sacred personality' and she can be disrespectful, mean, cruel, with my mother. 

Rough situation. I've seen it a few times. One logical child, the other is hyper. If unchecked, and not properly understood, the logical one becomes bitter as they age while the hyper one gets all the attention. The logical one always gets caught. 

It's up to your parents to decide when enough is enough. I totally understand how you care and why, (I have a sister), but you are only in charge of your own life. In this day and age there are at least two perceptions to every situation, and a spectrum of opinions between them. Choose your battles wisely or let it go. Logic backfires often in this new age of deception.

@Son of Placid I try to avoid her as much as possible. Few years ago, she tried to commit suicide with a knife. I am sure it was just emotional blackmailing. I read somewhere that narcissists choose one child as their favorite and blame the other child for everything. My sister is my father's favorite.

I feel like I'm slowly being corrupted and moving away from religion... at times I feel no guilt and care for nothing. It's depressing.

The fact that you find it upsetting means you can turn it around if you want.

Salam,

l was watching some old off-air tapes l had made last night. One part had an old Bill Moyers commentary dated 21Dec07. His commentary America on Steroids is at the end (pornography passed off as advertising). Moyers first guest is  Benjamin Barber wrote a book titled Consumed  that deals with trends in American society. Transcript (at the beginning): http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/12212007/transcript4.html . lnserted between the two l had re-taped Richard Burton's opening soliloquy at the beginning of the movie The Robe --the entire movie is online, the scene at the forum. The remainder of the movie is hokey. This makes for a good place to mark-off your position. Emotions.

l'II add something my father use to say about the usual things called "a good time": "You are not missing anything".  He was/is right about that. lt saves on a lot of hassles and problems, too.

It might seem like that but it's not always the case and never that clear cut. Out of the five I raised, two were girls. Could have called them night and day. While chasing the crazy one, the other felt neglected. There's no win/win for dad, he's always wrong. There's rarely a win and always the risk of loss when it comes to girls. All my moral parenting skills were from my big ego...I learned to shut up and let Mom handle it and wouldn't take sides, share male opinions, or dare show favoritism to either word or deed on either side. Of course that meant I didn't care, right. I lost my best jeans, my best shirts, even the boxers they gave me for Christmas, and lost tools out of my garage to "friends". I got yelled at from two directions for wanting them back, (forget the boxers). 

It sounds to me like your father has not yet reached the stage where his anger is replaced by fear. (That era would be the trio of a wife and two teenage girls) In an age where only women count he will soon realize that his presence in a female situation is not welcome and will slowly come to accept it. At that time you will see little of him and hear even less.

Fathers find various means to cope with it.

Why are summers so much better than winters?

I'm gonna guess it's the sunlight.

We consume more calories starting in Autumn to stockpile up for the cold winter season ahead. The length of daytime, nighttime or exposure to sunlight can have an impact on our bodies. Some people develop SAD (seasonal affective disorder) in the winter months as lack of sunlight can cause a drop in serotonin levels. In the summer, our sleeping habits change, our eating habits change and sunshine can be great for our bodies producing Vitamin D.

The true home for heart is in the presence of Allah, not this inferior soil!

For this, those who are abandoned from the true home are restless and anxious, even if their anxiety and restlessness isn’t visible and apparent, but when they pay attention to the depths of their soul, they would see that they are in anxiety.

Keeping busy with material matters and illusions have kept the human away from heeding God and their truth, so they don’t heed their restlessness and spiritual pains.

The problem of mankind today is that they assume their tranquility and stability would be achieved by satisfying their desires and lusts. So, they try their best to utilize the world more and more, but they will never reach their want. Because the world of nature isn’t the world of tranquility and stability.

The material world means the world of waves! In a world based on restlessness where nothing has stability, how can tranquility be achieved?

Ayatullah Ali Foroughi

Needless to say, this doesn’t mean tranquility in this world can’t be achieved. It won’t be achieved by these material means -- what we are wrongly trying to use for this matter.

So, l am sitting here waiting for the news to begin when l see this trashy commercial. Flashing lights, dancing, laughter, rock band, and so on.

lt is a "party for jesus" they are advertising. 

So l look up their website.

ln a banner line it reads:   "A wild celebration of stories, songs and wonders. Because: jesus is alive, and hope is real." 

Bold face by editor. Their reason for this?  Easter.

Opine: To many people, this speaks for itself. Can we imagine a rock-fest inside a mosque for the Prophet-saws or for Ibrahim or Moses in a synagogue (and mosque).

l can't think of anything else socially acceptable to write.

The sun is inherently uncomfortable and unpleasant. This isn't my personal tastes, this is in Quran. Paradise is described as a place wherein there is no sun.

Sun worship in modern culture, and modern western culture in particular, has gone way out of hand.

PS winter is awesome and snow is beautiful.

Unless you have seasonal affective disorder.

And how do get your Vitamin D? Food sources aren’t sufficient. So it’s either sunlight or supplements. Of which source does God intend?

Actually, it's the lack of snow.

Sun shines here most every day during winter. It helps you forget it's -30 some days. You lose half your stuff under the snow. Everything except the lawn mower has to be four wheel drive. Fishing means drilling half a meter through ice. No matter how tall your boots, they still get snow in them. Spring has sprung, so only -17 by this weekend. Snowing out right now.

The geese are scouting, but not much open ground yet. Actually saw a goose pushing snow away to make a nest today.

Next the ducks will nest in my pond, all the colourful birds will be back, bats and butterflies. Plush green grass and trees, gardens growing, flowers, the honey bees will come back to life. Save $250 a month in heating bills, live in a T shirt. Yeah, I can't wait.
