He will be

March 4, 2010

I am sure that I’ll meet him some day and I will be lucky. The world’s most fortunate girl.

I do not know Who is he? where is he now? and what is he doing?
But I am sure that there is someone in the world that thinking to me now. I remember an interesting sentence from the Gabriel Garcia Marquez: In the world there  is someone who thinks to you before sleep and dreams about you.
You may be only one person in the world, but for some people you are whole of world. Perhaps God is prefer for you to know many poor people  and then you meet the appropriate person, thus when you found him, you can better grateful.

I am sure that one day he will be my side. اhe overcome my loneliness. I will be happy someday…

Choose

March 1, 2010

I don’t know what’s it’s name? destiny, mistake or something else. It can be said a lot of nouns. On the other hand it can be called an accident. Everything is possible in our lives.

Yesterday my friend said that she is in love with a person who their visions of life aren’t identical. I mean, the perspective of opinions are important in life such as attitude to life, religion, God and politics!

She said her beliefs are important, but she loves that boy. I think that  it should be a complex situation.

Dispute over the beliefs that have been valuable to you in your life or given priority to your lover that also so important in continue of your love and may be your future perspective?  although I think it is very difficult to live with someone who does not like your ideas or at least does not think like you. I think this conflict is so important after marriage. Because you live with someone under one roof. thus for improving your relationship and love it is so important that you have peace and calmness. Permanent conflict over ideas is very tedious and may reduce the understanding in life.
I said to my friend it is a good time to concern about her opinions to choose a right decision.

Respect

November 9, 2009

For respect to some people we need more  knowledge and some of them less …

Today when I checked my Persian weblog counter, I saw an entry  from another weblog’s comments page. that blog belong to a Persian celebrity blogger who I left a comment for one of his posts. My comment was very honestly and respectful. Because The celebrity blogger “was” giant for himself and others in Persian blog world!

Later in charge of activity in social networks, I knew him more, and I understood that he is not committed to the ethics. He had some relationships with a married woman. In addition he has many negative points. For example, many lies and hypocrisy.

However,he is not important for me or my life. This man had no effect on my life and either me on his life. I don’t have any communication with him, but he  is not a  giant anymore and also I haven’t my former behavior with him.

Now I see how other bloggers and readers have so many respect to him, And I’ll sorry. cause morally he is a dead  man for me.

I wrote this post just wanna to say that respect is a concept which made by ourselves.  With our own actions and ethics, we  encourage others to respect us or disrespect.

Depth

November 7, 2009
She saw something and it cause her  to cried very much. While she could start a good day. But not happened. Because she found the depth range.
Understanding of some facts, is always bitter… At least she understood that she shouldn’t  track it anymore. Because the depth is more than what she conjectured. And therefore, her efforts to improve, are  ineffectual & vain.
She desires that if she could talk with someone about it, to become a  little quiet. But talking about it is very hard. And more importantly that the girl isn’t able to do it. I know, like always she Will prefer to cry secretly.

Defect

November 2, 2009

A week ago, I had been working for a mission with some colleagues. A new colleague joined us, he is a young boy. He has approximately 30 years old and is very ingenious. He graduated in Master of Encryption from one of the top universities in Iran. But throughout our mission I pathos for him a lot, because he has  stutter and is not able to express his intents well. I think he was very struck embarrassment, because of his deficiency.

I don’t know why I should have pathos from him?! sometimes my feelings are out of my control. these times I become very hank myself!

November 2, 2009

A man called home to his wife and said, “Honey I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss & several of his Friends.

We’ll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that Promotion I’ve been wanting, so could you please pack enough Clothes for a week and set out

my rod and fishing box, we’re Leaving From the office & I will swing by the house to pick my things up” “Oh! Please pack my new blue silk pajamas.”

The wife thinks this sounds a bit fishy but being the good wife she is, did exactly what her husband asked.

The following Weekend he came home a little tired but otherwise looking good.

The wife welcomed him home and asked if he caught many fish?

He said, “Yes! Lots of Salmon, some Bluegill, and a few Swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to Do?”

You’ll love the answer…

The wife replied, “I did. They’re in your fishing box…..”

Doubled loneliness

When a person loves someone, is more alone. Cause he can’t tell anybody about his feelings except loved. And if the person, who he loves, invites him to silence, his has the end of loneliness.

Reaction

October 14, 2009

Reaction was simple. In fact, I had expected something similar, But the problem is that I do not know how deep is? I’m afraid about thinking of it’s depth . This case had occurred many times before this . I do not understand myself. The problem is that I should not have this much of sensitivity. This is something that is not related to me or my business. But I wish I could control my feelings. I am tired Of non-being in-control. I decide Frequently to not think about it, anymore. Become successful in sometimes, but every time an event, reaction, or something, that leads me to it. I wish I could clear some parts of my memories . For example, I wish I could command to my brain to clear memories of  Date 1 to Date 2.

I wish I was able to do. At least I can living Comfortable for a while and I did not think about sad things. So who is going to, I’ll get mad:(

Yes, that is true … The event that I was afraid it, finally occurred.

Intelligent people ‘less likely to believe in God’

June 14, 2008

?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People with higher IQs are less likely to believe in God, according to a new study.

Professor Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, said many more members of the “intellectual elite” considered themselves atheists than the national average.

A decline in religious observance over the last century was directly linked to a rise in average intelligence, he claimed.

But the conclusions – in a paper for the academic journal Intelligence – have been branded “simplistic” by critics.

Professor Lynn, who has provoked controversy in the past with research linking intelligence to race and sex, said university academics were less likely to believe in God than almost anyone else.

A survey of Royal Society fellows found that only 3.3 per cent believed in God – at a time when 68.5 per cent of the general UK population described themselves as believers.

A separate poll in the 90s found only seven per cent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God.

Professor Lynn said most primary school children believed in God, but as they entered adolescence – and their intelligence increased – many started to have doubts.

He told Times Higher Education magazine: “Why should fewer academics believe in God than the general population? I believe it is simply a matter of the IQ. Academics have higher IQs than the general population. Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQs tend not to believe in God.”

He said religious belief had declined across 137 developed nations in the 20th century at the same time as people became more intelligent.

But Professor Gordon Lynch, director of the Centre for Religion and Contemporary Society at Birkbeck College, London, said it failed to take account of a complex range of social, economic and historical factors.

“Linking religious belief and intelligence in this way could reflect a dangerous trend, developing a simplistic characterisation of religion as primitive, which – while we are trying to deal with very complex issues of religious and cultural pluralism – is perhaps not the most helpful response,” he said.

Dr Alistair McFadyen, senior lecturer in Christian theology at Leeds University, said the conclusion had “a slight tinge of Western cultural imperialism as well as an anti-religious sentiment”.

Dr David Hardman, principal lecturer in learning development at London Metropolitan University, said: “It is very difficult to conduct true experiments that would explicate a causal relationship between IQ and religious belief. Nonetheless, there is evidence from other domains that higher levels of intelligence are associated with a greater ability – or perhaps willingness – to question and overturn strongly felt institutions.”

Have your say: Is faith linked to intelligence?????????????????

People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
 
If you are kind,
People may accuse you ,
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be Kind anyway.
 
If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and
some true enemies;
Succeed anyway, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
 
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
 
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
 
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
 
Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
 
You see, in the final analysis.
it is between you and God;
It is never between you and them anyway.

5 Days to New Year in Iran

March 15, 2008

Just five days remaining to new year in Iran… Todays I review this year and try to find my weakpoints to improve them.

The new year holidays called Norooz (Norouz) – meaning (New Day).

The people in Iran celebrate New Year on the first day of spring. Most of the people in Iran are Muslims and celebrate their New Year with joy and fervor. Noruz or Nowruz, which is the New Year in Iran, is celebrated on the 21st of March according to the Georgian calendar. One can find in the towns and villages cannons. It is believed that until these cannons are not heard the New Year celebrations cannot begin. The preparations for the New Year in Iran begin few days ahead of the New Year.

                          
 The Picture’s name is Haft-sin Table: made up of seven symbols of life and the interaction of human beings with nature, here is a great article about Haft Sin table.

partying, feasting and enjoying throughout the night of the New Year are essential New Year customs that the people in India follow on New Year.

Food, flowers, Money, and gifts are kept on a special tray in Iran.These gifts called Eydy (In Persian) ,The children on New Year’s Day keep their eyes closed until they are led to the tray. Making New Year resolutions are important New Year customs that the people in Iran regard as essential and close to their heart.

An Iterview With God

March 13, 2008

I dreamed that I had an iterview with God

“So you would  like to iterview me?” God asked.
“If you have the time”. I said.
God smiled
“My time is eternity.”
“What questions do you have in mind for me?”
“Whay surprises you most aboat human kind?”
God answered…
“That they get boared with childhood, they rush to grow up and then long to be children again.”
“That they lose their health to get money, and they lose their money to restore their health.”
“That by thinking anxiously aboat the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neather present nor future.”
“That they live as if they never die, and die if they had never lived.”
   

God’s hand took mine and we where silent for a while.
And then I asked…
“As the creator of people, what are some of life’s lessons you want them to learn?”
God replied with a smile…
“To learn they cannot make anyone love them. what they con do is let themselves be loved.”
“To learn thet it is not good to compare hemselves to others.”
“To learn that a rich person is not onewho has the most, but is one who needs the least.”
“To learn that it takes only a few seconds to open  profound wounds in person we love, and it takes many years to heal them.”
“To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.”
“To learn that there are persons who love them dearly, but simply do noy know how to express or show their feelings.”
“To learn that two people can look at the same thingand see it differenfly.”
“To learn that it is not always enough that they be fogiven by others, they must forgive themselves.”
“And to learn that I am here
                                         ALWAYS.”

Do People Only Use 10 Percent Of Their Brains?

March 10, 2008

The human brain is complex. Along with performing millions of mundane acts, it composes concertos, issues manifestos and comes up with elegant solutions to equations. It’s the wellspring of all human feelings, behaviors, experiences as well as the repository of memory and self-awareness. So it’s no surprise that the brain remains a mystery unto itself.

Adding to that mystery is the contention that humans “only” employ 10 percent of their brain. If only regular folk could tap that other 90 percent, they too could become savants who remember π to the twenty-thousandth decimal place or perhaps even have telekinetic powers.

Though an alluring idea, the “10 percent myth” is so wrong it is almost laughable, says neurologist Barry Gordon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. Although there’s no definitive culprit to pin the blame on for starting this legend, the notion has been linked to the American psychologist and author William James, who argued in The Energies of Men that “We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources.” It’s also been associated with to Albert Einstein, who supposedly used it to explain his cosmic towering intellect.

The myth’s durability, Gordon says, stems from people’s conceptions about their own brains: they see their own shortcomings as evidence of the existence of untapped gray matter. This is a false assumption. What is correct, however, is that at certain moments in anyone’s life, such as when we are simply at rest and thinking, we may be using only 10 percent of our brains.

“It turns out though, that we use virtually every part of the brain, and that [most of] the brain is active almost all the time,” Gordon adds. “Let’s put it this way: the brain represents three percent of the body’s weight and uses 20 percent of the body’s energy.”

The average human brain weighs about three pounds and comprises the hefty cerebrum, which is the largest portion and performs all higher cognitive functions; the cerebellum, responsible for motor functions, such as the coordination of movement and balance; and the brain stem, dedicated to involuntary functions like breathing. The majority of the energy consumed by the brain powers the rapid firing of millions of neurons communicating with each other. Scientists think it is such neuronal firing and connecting that gives rise to all of the brain’s higher functions. The rest of its energy is used for controlling other activities—both unconscious activities, such as heart rate, and conscious ones, such as driving a car.

Although it’s true that at any given moment all of the brain’s regions are not concurrently firing, brain researchers using imaging technology have shown that, like the body’s muscles, most are continually active over a 24-hour period. “Evidence would show over a day you use 100 percent of the brain,” says John Henley, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Even in sleep, areas such as the frontal cortex, which controls things like higher level thinking and self-awareness, or the somatosensory areas, which help people sense their surroundings, are active, Henley explains.

Take the simple act of pouring coffee in the morning: In walking toward the coffeepot, reaching for it, pouring the brew into the mug, even leaving extra room for cream, the occipital and parietal lobes, motor sensory and sensory motor cortices, basal ganglia, cerebellum and frontal lobes all activate. A lightning storm of neuronal activity occurs almost across the entire brain in the time span of a few seconds.

“This isn’t to say that if the brain were damaged that you wouldn’t be able to perform daily duties,” Henley continues. “There are people who have injured their brains or had parts of it removed who still live fairly normal lives, but that is because the brain has a way of compensating and making sure that what’s left takes over the activity.”

Why People Leave

January 27, 2008

For the individuals considering a change in job, the reasons can be as many and varied as the personalities involved. For the organization with pathologically high turnover,a few reasons account for most departures:

  • a just-passing-through mentality: Co-workers engender no feelings of long-term involvement in the job.
  • a feeling of disposability: Management can only think of its workers as interchangeable parts (since turnover is so high, nobody is indispensable).
  • a sense that loyalty would be ludicrous: Who could be loyal to an organization that views its people as parts?

People in our lives

January 21, 2008

Many times of these days I think about this subject: Why God puts some people in our lives? Sometimes their life spans (in our life) are short, but they have the long-lived and great effect in our life. Of course I talk about the negative/bad impacts.

We know the God loves human beings. He said in Qur’an*: the human beings are the Excellency of creatures. So, why he puts some people in our lives, they deposit many negative impacts in our lives and made us annoyed for a long time?! Is it a paradox in God’s kindness?!

I think NO. Let me talk about some of God’s interests.One of the major interests of God is: the people always connecting him, and talk him about their requests and wishes.  He doesn’t like one of his created beings forget him and relies on others.

Let us to honest with ourselves. When you remember the God and asked him your desires? If you judging fairly, the answers are like: when I’m sad or when I was in bad situation or when I missed a valuable thing or person (maybe he/she has been died or to left you alone…)

I believe that when we forget the God, the bad event occurs, because he doesn’t like the creatures forget him and he wants to remember this fact to us, because he loves us. I think this is the first goal of God to putting us in bad conditions. Also I think the bad events are examinations of our patience. How much we have tolerances in bad situations and how we encountering them? Are we ungratefulness or ingratitude toward God?

And the second aim? I think the second goal of God is: improvement and expanding our experiments about our personality and relationships. Am I right? I think acquainted with everybody – and in general, every relation – will be welfare our knowledge base about mankind and their spiritual matters.

You know when somebody injury you (either material or spiritual), s/he also teach you a lesson. If you are clever, the next times you act prudently and don’t allow anybody to harm you in the same way.

I think life is full of these types of lessons and experiences. And you should apply them in similar circumstances to be succeed. When we are sad, we can’t decide logically and we can’t distinguish which is better for us. For example in these bad situations you can ask yourself: the bad situation in this time is better or bad consequences of this transient happiness that made a terrible life for me in future? And then you can make a trade off between the answers.

Remember, with all of awful events, your life is flowing till now…Are you remembering sometimes in past you decided to killing yourself because of critical pressures? But you are still alive and can breathe the life…Therefore, I think, we should thanks God for all of our belongings and non belongings. 

* Qur’an: Qur’an is the Moslems holy book (like gospel of matter for Christians)   

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.
