Good vs Evil. Who is stronger?

Individuals who are brought up in a religious environment, tend to believe that the force of good is stronger than the force of evil. But in reality; both the forces live in equilibrium. Good must exist so that evil will have a meaning. So are light and darkness.

But! In the end, it is the way you perceive life. If you surround your self with the negative things about life, you will be on the side of darkness, but if you live in serenity and believe that life is beautiful; you will see that the force of good is stronger than the force of evil.

In this world, there are people who are very kind and thoughtful, and at the same time there exist thieves and murderers.

But how do we know who is good and who is bad?

Good people are those who wouldn’t do to others what they wouldnt do to themselves. Bad people are those who would do to others what they wouldnt do to themselves.

That, is the foundation of the understanding of good and evil.

Knowing man, it is impossible to find a single individual who is perfect. We are all interconnected. A quality which is missing in me; can be found in another human, and a quality that is missing in another human; can be found in me, we together; become perfect, we individually; are imperfect.

Are the rich evil or good?

Again it depends on the activity in which this rich individual is involved in.

There are rich families who own public hospitals, they own organizations that only bring a deficit to their own accounts, non-profit. At the same time, there exist powerful and rich people who only destroy communities and indulge in mass murders, in order to achieve their own desires.

On which side shall I be on?

You shouldn’t have asked this question. 🙂

Things you need to know about life.

Life is a lot more complicated than you think it is.

Truth always prevails

Lying will get you no where, sooner or later your lie will come chasing after you and bite you in the butt.

Have an open mind, your thoughts are not absolute

Too often people think that their own beliefs are absolute truth, the best example of this can be found with religious extremists, they talk as if they have the Archangel’s phone number on speed dial, they ignore the fact that their beliefs are stemmed from years of conditioning and prejudice, same goes for those who only believe in science, just because some theory has been proven lately that doesn’t mean that it is the absolute truth, scientific theory can be disproved any second, did you know that in the black hole; all laws of physics are irrelevant?

The point is that whatever we believe now, can be changed instantly with a single moment of epiphany, or what we call – a paradigm shift. Therefore we must have an open mind and respect other beliefs, cultures and traditions. What works for others might not work for you and vice versa.

Love is most powerful, love always prevails

Love brings miracles, if you want to pursue someone to do something for you, do it by using the power of love, and not by using the power of fear.

Throughout history, power has been achieved by the abuse of people’s weaknesses – Fear.

Now, we are in the age of thought, and people are starting to realize that higher output can be attained by working on people’s strengths rather than working on their weaknesses. In the future, people shall be ruled by love. 

In the past, or today as well; people are ruled by using the power of fear, an example; if a child stays outside the house until late hours, he is to be punished, in the future the child will know that if he stays outside for late hours; he is hurting his parents, therefore he will not stay out for late hours because of his love and respect for his parents. Similarly the behavior of the citizens will change, they will abide by the law because of their love for the community and their love for each other, they will not abide by the law just for the sake of being afraid of punishment.

Co-operation, no man can reach great heights without the aid of great people.

Learn to co-operate with people, know that every fault you find in people is a fault in you. Learn to accept people and set your emotions aside, with time, you will find that everybody is simply perfect.

Always go for win/win. 

If you bring the best out of people, they will in turn bring the best out of you.

Life can be unfair, get used to it, you either change it or leave it.

You often ask, why does this guy get to be the ruler of my country, while I am some clerk in some low class company? Well there is a quote that says “The universe is like a shop, you can buy anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price” You can achieve what your heart desires, the question is; do you really want that thing or its just a mere wish?

Blaming yourself is better than blaming others.

I often find people blaming their misfortunes on other people or on circumstances. The Quran says; God gives tasks to a soul according to it’s capacity. (لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا  Surat Al – Baqarah 2:286, this is not the literal translation but it is the closest it can get to it’s meaning) Therefore if you are not strong enough to take blame for your misfortunes, then you can not proceed and develop to a higher level of consciousness and being.

I found that blaming myself for my misfortunes is a lot better than blaming others, because when I blame myself, I find that I learn and develop a lot more, also the specific misfortune is less likely to happen again. But when I blame others, the same misfortunes happen over and over again.

Therefore take blame and increase your capacity of consciousness.

Everything happens for your own good

Men are not troubled by problems, they are troubled by the way they look at their problems. 

It is up to you to decide whether the glass of water is half empty or half full.

Law of Success # 2 Give in, let The Force take care of your endeavours.

I changed the way I look at life, and I couldn’t help but notice that everything around me has changed. In the past; the more I tried hard to make my life better, the more things got complicated. The more I tried to take control; the more things went out of my hand and I was met with disappointment and defeat.

I was left with no choice but to give in.

My new outlook is this; there is an entity, that is watching over me and is handling my affairs, it loves me so much and it can not let me down. Why? Because I love and respect it so much and I have blind faith in it. I direct everything that happens to me towards it. Everything that happens to me is it’s wish, not mine. When I ask for something from it, I just ask and let go. It in turn brings that to me. The moment I fear that the thing I asked for will not come or the moment I doubt this entity’s love and care for me, I loose the bond and the fear becomes a reality.

Things happen to me in my life with precise timing that it would be impossible for me to say that its a coincidence, the only logical explanation that I can come up with is that it was this entity’s doing.

Fear is my greatest enemy, fear was meant to protect me when I was a child but unfortunately sometimes it manifests in my adulthood.

In all my endeavours; whenever I am calm and have absolute faith that I will succeed, I do succeed. But when I fear that I will fail, I do fail.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him. Psalm 32:10

Live in the now and trust that whatever happens in your life is for your own good, even if your condition is awful now, it will become better, change is the law of life.

I wanted to share a post that was written by Steve Pavlina, he describes his outlook on life, his vision had a profound impact on the way I look and deal with things, I hope you find it useful too.

Do Aliens exist? Are we the only living creatures in the Universe?

I cannot deny the fact that I have been pondering on the possibility of the existence of creatures – other than us in this universe – for a while now. I have seen tons of symbolic evidences but I haven’t yet shook hands with an alien.

To be honest, lets face it, the universe is so vast, we are a ball pen dot among the many planets and galaxies that exist in the universe and to think that we are the only ones is too selfish and egotistic. The church, or religious authorities might say BUT NO! THIS IS BLASPHEMY! Well in response I would say; to belittle god’s power by saying that we are the sole creation – can also be called blasphemy!

My theory that I want to share is this; There are creatures that are not only alien, but more intelligent. The difference between us and them is similar to the difference between an ant and a human. Us being the former, them the latter. Although all creatures have their own unique intelligence, here we measure intelligence by the category of destructive or manipulative power.

The chain of power amongst organisms is very obvious that even a child wouldn’t miss it. Does the ant know about the mechanisms of our weapons? Does the ant know how a man-made rocket launcher works? Of course it doesn’t  but obviously it knows that we humans exist, but it doesn’t know who we are, our anatomy, etc. I don’t think that this chain of power stops with humans, there has to be a stronger being, which has a stronger being, which has a stronger being.

But we don’t see them!! So of course they don’t exist!

That can be counter argued very easily. Have you heard about a snake’s vision? A snake doesn’t see the details of your face or body, it only sees an aura of heat. So imagine, a snake lives all it’s life thinking that you are some form of energy moving around, it has no idea about how you look. Similarly, we can not see those “super beings” but we can feel their existence, maybe “God’s weird sense of humor” (like some people like to call it) is because of them, who knows ya?

A message to all religious extremists.

It is true that we are lucky to be born Muslims, but to believe that god only loves Muslims thats just plain silly.

How to become emotionally stable.

Control your environment.

Our problem is that we surround ourselves with people or things that leach energy out of us, and then we wonder why we are on an emotional roller coaster. First thing you should do is to watch out for your environment, I don’t know who said this famous quote, some people say it was Freud some people say it was Neitzsche, it goes something like this; Before you diagnose yourself with depression, make sure that you are not surrounded by assholes. That is true, your environment shapes who you are, now we are not only talking about the people surrounding you, we are talking about almost everything, if your room’s shelves contains video games, you will probably see yourself as a gamer, if the shelves are filled with books you will see yourself as an intellectual, therefore you have to control your surrounding, the music you listen to, the movies you watch, the things you talk about, they all define your emotional and mental state.

Stop fighting life, give up, surrender, float! instead of swimming against the current.

No matter how successful or powerful you have become, if your soul has not yet been surrendered to the higher force, you will still find sadness in your life, you will still experience pain, truly, to absolutely believe that there is a great lover watching after you is a hard task, but Oh how fruitful it is!

Accept the world as it is, close your eyes and dance to His tune.

Give every drop of love you have in your bottle.

Give love so that love will become a part of your being. At every opportunity, give love, so that He returns that love to you.

Don’t judge what you see because every fault you see, is a fault in you, every human, every particle, every matter, is a reflection of you. When you judge things you are judging yourself.

If you are constantly re-confronted with pain always know that, You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star. ~ Neitzsche.

Thought rec #4

Every thought is real,

Every spelled word is real,

If it doesn’t exist in front of your eyes, it exists somewhere else.

Thought rec #3

As I become smarter, everyone around me becomes smarter.

No matter how many epiphanies god bestows upon me, I still feel inadequate, there is still something missing inside.

Law of Success # 1 Whatever you want to become/achieve, do it step by step. Patience.

Build your dream brick by brick.

You might not see any immediate results, that’s natural, if you want to build a house, you will not see in front of your eyes a house just after laying the first brick. You have to be patient, persistent, keep your goal in mind and never lift your eyes off of it. The Quran says that humans were created weak (Surat An-Nisā’, 28) and impatient (Surat Al-‘Isra‘, 11) It is human’s nature to be in a hurry and expect immediate results. Therefore be positive, approach your goal little by little.

Once The Emam Ali pbuh, was on his way to the mosque on top of his horse. When he reached the mosque he told a man standing outside the mosque to watch over his horse while the Emam goes inside to pray. The man got greedy and stole the Emam’s saddle from the horse’s back and hurried to the marketplace to sell it.

While the Emam finished his prayer, he found that the man was gone and the saddle was missing, so he decided to go to the market to buy another saddle so that he can ride his horse.

Upon reaching the market, he was shocked to find his saddle displayed for sale. He asked the seller, how much will you sell this saddle? The seller replied, 10 Dirhams, the Emam asked him, how much did you buy it for? He replied, 5 Dirhams.

The Emam said; glory to God, I was planning to pay the thief 5 Dirhams for watching over my horse while I was praying, but he didn’t have any patience.

Success will come to you, leave it in the hands of god, So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (The Bible, Luke, Chapter 11 Verse 9)

Have patience.

All humans believe in god. Period. الأيمان بالله فطرة

Believing in god/a higher force is an instinct. Just like when a man knows that he needs to eat indefinitely, all humans know that there is a higher force for which they can not explain. For e.g If an atheist is on a plane and the plane is taking him on an enjoyable auto-pilot cruise, he will say wow! How scientists are amazing! As soon as the plane drops and is about to crash, he will call on god for help.

That my friend, is instinct.


P.S. This is not a message to atheists saying that you should convert, but this is rather a message to religious extremists to leave them alone.
