God is in Everywhere

December 31, 2007

A student sits down in philosophy class. The subject of class was about the God. The professor asked: is there anyone that heard the God’s voice?! Nobody replied. The professor asked again: is there anybody that touched the God?! Nobody replied again. The professor asked third: is there anyone that seen the God?! Nobody replied for third!

And then the professor said decisively: we concluded that there isn’t any God in the world!

The student didn’t agree with professor’s reasoning at all. He stands up and said: can I talk? Yeah, the professor said. The student asked his classmates: is here anybody that heard the professor’s brain voice?! Nobody replied. The student asked again: is here anybody that touched the professor’s brain?! Nobody replied again. He asked third: is here anybody that seen the professor’s brain?! Nobody replied third.

And then the student concluded that: the professor haven’t any brain :- )

Human relationships

December 30, 2007

I think the most complicated thing in the world is human’s relationships. I believe that every person is a world.

I fount a good article about understating human relationships:

One of the most important relationship lessons I learned was this:  The relationships we have with other people are projections of the relationships we have within ourselves.  Our external relationships and our internal relationships are in fact the same relationships.  They only seem different because we look at them through different lenses.

Let’s consider why this is true.  Where do all your relationships exist?  They exist in your thoughts.  Your relationship with another person is whatever you imagine it to be.  Whether you love someone or hate someone, you’re right.  Now the other person may have a completely different relationship to you, but understand that your representation of what someone else thinks of you is also part of your thoughts.  So your relationship with someone includes what you think of that person and what you believe s/he thinks of you.  You can complicate it further by imagining what the other person thinks you think of him/her, but ultimately those internal representations are all you have.

Even if your relationships exist in some objective reality independent of your thoughts, you never have access to the objective viewpoint.  You’re always viewing your relationships through the lens of your own consciousness.  The closest you can get to being objective is to imagine being objective, but that is in no way the same thing as true objectivity.  That’s because the act of observation requires a conscious observer, which is subjective by its very nature.

At first it might seem troublesome that you can never hope to gain a truly accurate, 100% objective understanding of your relationships.  You can never escape the subjective lens of your own consciousness.  That would be like trying to find the color blue with a red lens permanently taped over your eyes.  That doesn’t stop people from trying, but such attempts are in vain.  If you fall into the trap of trying to think of your relationships as objective entities that are external to you, you’ll be using an inescapably inaccurate model of reality.  Consequently, the likely outcome is that you’ll frustrate yourself to no end when it comes to human relationships.  You’ll make relating to other people a lot harder than it needs to be.  Intuitively you may know something is off in your approach to relationships, but you’ll remain stuck until you realize that every relationship you have with another person is really a relationship that exists entirely within yourself.

Fortunately, once you embrace the subjective nature of relationships, you’ll have a much easier time relating to people.  It’s easier to get where you want to go when you have an accurate map.  The subjective view of relationships implies that you can change or improve your relationships with others by working on the internal relationships within yourself.  Furthermore, you can improve your internal relationships, such as your self-esteem, by working on your relationships with others.  Ultimately it’s all the same thing.

The 5 users you meet in hell

December 30, 2007

Here we present five of the most common user types, gleaned from IT pros in the field, and throw in one of the angelic variety for good measure:

1. The Know-It-All
You know this user. He knows a little HTML, and he defragged his hard drive once, so now he thinks he’s an engineer who knows more than you. He often refuses to follow policies and instructions and has been known to poke his head in the server room “just to see what you’re up to.”
Know-It-Alls often insist on doing things their own way. They change options and settings on their computers just because they can, and they have a tendency to connect devices and download software to their computers that IT does not support.
And, predictably, they’re arrogant enough to think they can’t possibly be wrong about any of this.

2. The Know-Nothing
We’ve all heard the joke about the clueless user who looks in vain for the “any” key when prompted by their computer to “hit any key.” Unfortunately, that’s no joke. Meet the Know-It-All’s polar opposite, the Know-Nothing — i.e., the person who knows so little about technology he requires handholding for even the simplest tasks.
These novice users demand a lot of attention and often require multiple visits for help, managers say. They’re frequently unable to articulate problems on the phone or over e-mail.
Know-Nothings like routine and often appear terrified of change, and once they’ve learned a program or task, they’re hard-pressed to adapt to a new or different way. Also, they get freaked out by things like unfamiliar icons or new tool bars.

3. Mr. Entitlement
Often heard uttering the phrase, “Do you know who I am?” this particular user type comes in a variety of subspecies. It may be the CEO, who (let’s face it) is genuinely entitled, or it may be a peon in marketing who thinks he’s entitled simply because you’re in customer service and he’s, well, not.
The Entitlement twins are always on deadline with a super-important project, which means it’s OK (in their minds, at least) to demand your immediate attention, ask you to skirt established procedures or call when you’ve got one foot out the door on Friday at 6 p.m.

4. The Finger-Pointer
Finger-Pointers never think (or at least, never admit) that they’re in any way to blame for any of their problems — you are.
When their systems are running slow, they assume that IT must have “done something to the server.” Their lost or misplaced documents and forgotten passwords must be the help desk’s fault. And yep, their misdirected print jobs and lost e-mail folders are all part of a vast IT conspiracy to mess up their workdays.
You know you’ve got a Finger-Pointer on your hands when you hear phrases like, “Everything was fine and then my system just blew up. What’d you guys do?”

5. The Twentysomething Whiz Kid
This person has dozens of freeware applications on his computer, along with three IM clients and a passel of unauthorized open-source software, and he knows how to use a proxy Web site to bypass the company firewall.
He’s the Twentysomething Whiz Kid, a cousin to the Know-It-All, except that the Whiz Kid actually does know something about technology. You can engage in technical debates with the Whiz Kid. He has an opinion on whether non-GPL software can be dynamically linked to GPL libraries. In his cubicle, he has a stuffed Tux, the Linux penguin mascot. And he’s highly likely to be a gamer, dude.

An Idle Angel

December 27, 2007

once a day a man dreamed a wonderful dream.
he saw he was near the angles and looked their works.
he saw a big set of angles woking hard, the angels opened the letters received from the messengers of the earth quickly and put them into the box. the man asked an angel: what you doing?! the angelsaid (while opening a letter): here is the receive unit and we deliverying the peoples prayers and requests from god!
the man went ahead. again he saw a set of angels that put the papers into the packets and send them to the messengers of the ground back!
man asked: what you doing?! one of angels replied guickly: here is send unit. we send the God’s kindness and graces to the slaves into the earth.
the man went ahead and saw an idle angel! he asked her surprisely: you are idle, why?
the angelreplied: the people who granted their prayers, should send their answers but only a few people answered. man asked the angel: how people can send their answers?
the angelreplied:
It’s so simple. it’s only enough that they say: Thanks God….

I am frozen

December 26, 2007

I’m not OK at all, I think I am frozen… , I really don’t know where is my heart? why I’m sad and hopeless? where is my mistake?!

I just belief that: All the doors are closed…

Sometimes I think I am the auditor of Madonna in the song “Frozen“:

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You’re frozen
When your heart’s not open

You’re so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You’re broken
When your heart’s not open

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmmm, we’d never be apart
Mmmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmmm, you hold the key

Now there’s no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside of you die
You’re frozen
When your heart’s not open

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmmm, we’d never be apart
Mmmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmmm, you hold the key

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You’re frozen
When your heart’s not open

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmmm, we’d never be apart
Mmmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmmm, you hold the key

Mmmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmmm, we’d never be apart
Mmmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmmm, you hold the key

If I could melt your heart

wish you were here

December 25, 2007

one of my favorite singers is Pink Floyd. I heard his song since I was a high school girl. I grew up with his songs. one of my favorite songs is wish you were here:

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

People Touch Our Lives

December 23, 2007

** I read the Gtarman’s “people in our lives” post series and try to write my own in the next posts. At first I have searched the google and found a pretty text:

((People important to you, people unimportant to you, cross your life, touch it with love and carelessness, and move on. There are people that leave you, and you breathe a sigh of relief, and you wonder why you ever came in contact with them. There are people who leave, and you breathe a sigh of remorse, and wonder why they had to go and leave such a gaping hole.

Children leave parents, friends leave friends, acquaintances move on. You think on the many who have moved into your life with hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder.

I believe in God’s master plan for our lives.

People move in and out of each other’s lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who have touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you.

Pray to God that you can accept the bits and pieces in humility and wonder, and never question, and never regret.))

** Also I found this ask and answer group in yahoo. someone asked:
Why do people come in our lives when ultimately they have to leave us?
we meet many people get attached to them but finally why does it happen that we have to separate why do we meet such good people when finqally we have to forget them sometimes meetings destined.

This question had some answers but the best answer was:

Can you tell me why the rain comes after summer season and not before? This is because summer means the hard word and the best effort to keep us going and being patience and bear the hot sun on the top of our head, so that we can understand the importance of rain in our life.
Remember: God empties your hand only to give you the best.

I offer you to read all of replies. some of them contains good points.

Blood Injection

December 23, 2007

I found this nice story in a Persian weblog called: A Grey Mind, the name of story is Blood Injection:

«Many years ago I worked in a hospital voluntarily. That time a girl had a strange illness. The only chance for her living was transition of the blood from one of her families to her. She had only a brother, and he had 5 years old. Physician talked to her brother. little boy asked: If I do it, is my sister remain alive? doctor said: Yeah, and little boy accepted it.

We confined him to bed beside her sister’s bed, and then connected the injection pipes to his body. the little boy looked at her sister and smiled. while the blood going out from his body asked doctor: Am I’ll go to the Heaven?!

The little boy thought that they must conduct all of his blood out of his body 🙂 »

just two days remain to end of world

December 18, 2007

I read bellow text in Persian and loved it, and then tyied to translated it: 

She found that she hadn’t any life and there isn’t any more life for her, all of her calendar days was full and just 2 days, 2 days remain empty.

She went near the god afflicted and angrily, perhaps to take more days from god.  she shouted and cursed, god was quiet. she screamed and brawled, god was quiet. she bothered for angles and other human beings, god was quiet. she ingratitude and hurled her prayer carpet, god was quiet. she offended and cried. god broke his silence and told her: My dear, another day passed too, and entirely you did brawl and cuss! you lose today too. just one day remains. come to have better life this one day at minimum.

Among the tears she said: with one day?! what I can do with one day?! god said: everybody who perceived the enjoy of being alive in one day in her life, to suppose that she could live thousands years, and whom don’t perceive today, aren’t useful the thousands years for her. and then god puts the quota of one day’s life in her hands, and said: go to life.

She looked to the shine of life in her hands amazingly. but to be afraid to move, to be afraid to start, she feared that life to shed among her fingers… she stopped a little, and told herself: when I have no tomorrow, what is the advantage of holding this one day?!  let me to consume this fist of life. then she started running… sprinkled the life in her face, drank the life, smelled the life, and became such happy that she could go to the end of world. she could fly. she didn’t construct any skyscraper, she didn’t occupant the ground, and didn’t take a rank. but she touched skin of a tree, slept on grass, watched a ladybug, saw the clouds, and said “hello” to all people, and prayed to all individuals that didn’t like her. she made peace, laugh, and became restful. she enjoyed, donated and loved. she just lived in one day and angles wrote this day in god’s calendar.

Today she has been died. someone that live thousands years…

The skills you need to succeed

December 16, 2007

Bill Gates: 

One of the most important changes of the last 30 years is that digital technology has transformed almost everyone into an information worker.

Bill Gates

A lot of people assume that creating software is purely a solitary activity. This isn’t true at all.

In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.

That’s true for everyone from the retail store worker who uses a handheld scanner to track inventory to the chief executive who uses business intelligence software to analyse critical market trends.

So if you look at how progress is made and where competitive advantage is created, there’s no doubt that the ability to use software tools effectively is critical to succeeding in today’s global knowledge economy.

A solid working knowledge of productivity software and other IT tools has become a basic foundation for success in virtually any career.

Beyond that, however, I don’t think you can overemphasise the importance of having a good background in maths and science.

If you look at the most interesting things that have emerged in the last decade – whether it is cool things like portable music devices and video games or more practical things like smart phones and medical technology – they all come from the realm of science and engineering.

The power of software

Today and in the future, many of the jobs with the greatest impact will be related to software, whether it is developing software working for a company like Microsoft or helping other organisations use information technology tools to be successful.

Bill Gates

Lifelong learning is vital

Communication skills and the ability to work well with different types of people are very important too.

A lot of people assume that creating software is purely a solitary activity where you sit in an office with the door closed all day and write lots of code.

This isn’t true at all.

Software innovation, like almost every other kind of innovation, requires the ability to collaborate and share ideas with other people, and to sit down and talk with customers and get their feedback and understand their needs.

I also place a high value on having a passion for ongoing learning. When I was pretty young, I picked up the habit of reading lots of books.

It’s great to read widely about a broad range of subjects. Of course today, it’s far easier to go online and find information about any topic that interests you.

Having that kind of curiosity about the world helps anyone succeed, no matter what kind of work they decide to pursue.

Bill Gates is chairman, chief software architect and one of the founders of Microsoft, the world’s largest software company. From July 2008 he will end his day-to-day involvement in the company and focus on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its global health and education work.

Not Fine

December 15, 2007

Recently one of my worries is my predestination in future! I think I had little effort in the past. when I reviewed my past, I just seen many inefficiencies and incapability. In other face I’m not satisfied from my past activities.

I had many desires that non of them has been satiated. Some of them that I can named are: I’d like to have doctorate degree in my field of knowledge (software engineering) but I have bachelors degree right now 😦

Also my job position isn’t fortified. My previous sentence not means that I have not security in job. It only means that I’m not an official staff of government till now because I haven’t Masters degree.

Maybe you said I’m a young girl and I have many times to changed above facts, but due to my personality I can’t accept this situation and its make me annoyed and angry. 

Every new days of new years I made many decisions about improving my life, but in the middle of years I forget my decisions and act foolish! I should rebuke myself to learn more and more.

I’m not fine and I’m not a satisfied person too, because I wasted many times and good positions with regret ad vanity…

Secret of Success

December 15, 2007

Sir, What is the secret of your success?”

“Two words”

“And, Sir, what are they?”

“Right decisions.”

“And how do you make right decisions?”

“One word.”

“And, What is that?”

“Experience.”

“And how do you get Experience?”

“Two words”

“And, Sir, what are they?”

“Wrong decisions.”

Lonely

December 15, 2007

A proverb said:

When you try to recognize that how much you are alone, see how you spent your weekends 

Freedom and Love

December 13, 2007

I read a nice text here:

Freedom comes from within. And most people are not free at all, but bound by their endless desire for material things, drama, a false idea of love and endless distractions. Most people mistake freedom as the ability to indulge in the addictions of their ego. Just as most people mistake love for possessiveness and emotional clinging. Love is something that exists within us all, something for us to give, but it’s never something to get. It can never be possessed or desired. The moment you want it, it becomes unattainable. But if you know that you are love, then you feel it and can share it. Just like freedom. The moment you seek it, the moment you want to do something to get it, it becomes out of our reach. Freedom becomes a goal, a goal which enslaves you.

A Dormitory Girl’s Story

December 12, 2007

I’m so bad… Because yesterday I found a weblog and read it. the weblog belongs to one of our dormitory’s girls. In summer season of 1381 I had so many projects and because of this I didn’t go to my homeland. often when I Arrived to faculty’s Computer site or software laboratory I saw a happy woman. her husband was in USA. All of their connections limited to telephone and chat. She was a lucky woman and most of dormitory’s girls jealousy to their life. In end of the year her husband came to IRAN and both of them went to USA.

Yesterday I read her blog and found that she divorced :(. We have a proverb in Persian language: remoteness and intimacy, means that whatever you are far from your dears you have most better connections and relationships. Maybe it is a paradox but its true in many cases…
