Frustration: One Sentence Expressed

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Guest Malfaisant

Being entrapped/ingulfed in sins, leading to forgetting God, Rasulallah, Aimmah.

Explanation:

Constant endless sinning leads to indifference, apathy, laziness, self-hatred, hopelesness depression, anxiety, anger, brashness, misery, agony, pain, lifelessness, suicidal tendencies, etc. Which leads to forgetting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), etc. The worst part is feeling like a munafiq. One minute you're trying to do something halal, wajib, mustahab... the next minute you're trapped doing something haram, kufr, makruh. Not knowing your Lord after having once known your Lord is the worst feeling in the world. Neglecting love and salawat for His Prophets and Imams, after having once dedicated so much to following them, is the same. You're sat there knowing that had I stopped myself from commiting that one major sin all that time ago, a dominoe effect of sin and apathy and self-hatred would have never occurred, and I wouldn't be in this position today. And you feel that there is no way to return to the straight path, you feel hopeless. And you keep beating yourself up over all of it (metaphorically).

The Imam isn't here because we aren't worthy

No the primarily reason is because we don't care. If people would care, we are about 300m shias all around the world. Do you know what we would be capable of?

people simple don't care. The system is made to distract us and make us care even less.

One man l knew said something in the 70s that l found to have 'truth' to it.

"The problem with parents is that they believe every kid of theirs is born knowing about everything they do."

That's close enough to a quote.

Conspiracy Theories lead to autism and autistic characteristics.

Respectfully disagree.

I was on the autism spectrum long before I ever began watching Alex Jones & following Qanon. If "conspiracy theories" lead to anything, it's psychosis & you can trust me on this because I am recovering from being wrapped up in those cults as I post this.

[Fun fact about the term "conspiracy theory" though; it entered the popular lexicon in America after the Kennedy Assassination (11.23.1963), when the Warren Commission decided to tell the American public that, despite the Abraham Zapruder film showing Kennedy CLEARLY being hit by a shot from the front-right, that Lee Harvey Oswald managed to do all that damage to him and wound Gov. Connelly with a single shot from a Carcano (one of the worst, least reliable rifles available at the time).

J. Edgar Hoover: "The American people MUST believe that Oswald acted alone"]


But, since even thinking about these subjects has put me into the Mental Health Hospital before; I have ceased to look into conspiracies & I have given these thoughts & fears over to God, as I have faith that he will (Inshallah) eventually take his vengeance upon the evil people who do these things in America and across the globe for the sake of maintaining their power over the earth.

I guess it means that the path of people who do good deeds has thorns and lots of obstructions, because it is a path not tread by enough people.

"The problem with parents is that they believe every kid of theirs is born knowing about everything they do know."

That's close enough to a quote.

It means that for example, Shia parents who move to the West and want to live a secular lifestyle, assume that their children know God, Tawhid, Islam, Rasulullah (s), Ahlul-Bayt (a) despite the parents never having uttered a word about these things in the house, nor did they ever take their kids to the masjid. At most the kids see one parent praying 5x/day, but with no substantial explanation given to the children, and the other parent only practices during Ramadan, and no substantial explanation for fasting is given either. Yet Masha'Allah the parents have strong belief in their heads, and wrongfully assume that their children do too. In this case, "don't be too religious" (e.g. supposed moderation), "don't be judgmental of others" (e.g. humanism, everyone is right) is the justification for neglecting their deen and neglecting having their child brought up religiously.

Edit: I think the confusion here is that you are reading "do" in hasanhh's quote as "the child supposedly knows all of the parent's actions", when it is meant to be read as "the child supposedly knows everything that the parent's know"

Conspiracy Theories

By accident, while clearing out some old paperwork, l found this reference for a well recieved 2008 publication.

Counterknowledge:  How We Surrender to Conspiracy Theories, Quack Medicine, Bogus Science and Fake History, by Damian Thompson, Norton lSBN 978-0-393-06769-9.  Also by Atlantic Books.

lncoherent expression --a partial answer.

"How?" is a perfectly acceptable expression because of the given context.

Anyhow, in regards to conspiracy theorists: Although I think that their beliefs can lead to problems in their life, they are not really the cause of debilitating cognitive disorders. Rather you may have mixed up the cause and the effect. There are some underlying problems which lead them to have such unfortunate views. It's like a a computer with faulty algorithms. You can correct one of their views with education, and they will produce another 100 faulty views after that. Their manner of thinking need serious correction. Some of them are very nice people but habitual in producing really faulty beliefs.

There are some inter-plays between mental qualities and personalities, but a preference for conspiracy "theories" only feeds an addicition, l believe.

Good point. They develop autistic like characteristics, even if brain doesn't have truly autistic traits? Neuroplasticity does exist.

Who 'excluded' the Navajo?

For the first time ever, Medicin sans Frontiers has deployed within the US.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/11/us/navajo-nation-doctors-without-borders/index.html

These people are United States Citizens.

What is our National Debt and Taxes paying for?

Nobody "excluded" the illegal aliens!

Do you find something similar in some people that are very into their religion?

We are sometimes taught that a very religious person is a good person - and I wont disagree with that. Among the most conscientious and wise people that I have met a big portion are very religious people. However as I have gotten older I have noticed that some of those people that are very into their religion, are like that because there seems to be something wrong with them. You can tell that they are of that type because there is a lack of compassion/empathy in their religious outlook or sometimes a lack of spirituality. They can have a lot of knowledge and be very practicing (sometimes selectively). Of course an 'autistic' type person could be a very good person, but these people seem to have those 'autistic' type traits and lack the aforementioned good traits.

I believe these people could be like that without religion, but could their particular religious beliefs also perpetuate or even create that type of personality?

For people who only take it emotionally and/or as entertainment, yes.

The revealed religion is a serious thought process.

The plants were a little damaged by Tropical Storm Isiahs, but the deer have left all my veggies alone behind their fence. (This picture was taken a while back.)
