Am a conqueror never a failure

To my littlest wolf…

You, my littlest wolf are my favorite,

you need not fear,

for i am hear to take away the fear,

i will protect you from the ravening snow

and the swirling whirlwind

i will come swiftly to keep you warm.

whenever you are alone and with fear

hold tight to this sculpture

and close your little eyes

and i will be there, my littlest wolf.

you, my littlest wolf are my darling,

and need not fear the terror of the dark.

for i will keep you and protect you

from the creeping night

i will keep you safe, my littlest wolf.


Strive to make someone smile…

This is the way I see it. When I woke up today I was feeling a little bit sentimental, I can not answer why. Although I knew my day will be great, so as usual I shook off any negative feelings one gets in moments like this ones. You slowly embrace a positive attitude.

Then I remember the questions I had before going to bed, what have I done today for my country? What have I done today to make someone’s life better?  I can’t answer that one not just yet, because as I remember it, I do not have an answer.  To find an answer to that you need to observe keenly, the little things you do everyday.  I can not say I have lived a perfect life, but you see they are the mistakes we make that teach us. I have heard a share of the same for years I have lived.

One important thing I have learned is no matter whom you are, putting others first it is a good thing that you can do as a person. Living a selfless life. A life where you dedicate to others and in doing so, you set examples for others to see, you become like a beacon, shinning bright in the darkness. The greatest honor you can do to yourself is to live your life, for others. People matter.

The common mistakes we both make are that we have always labored for our own benefits, ambitions and goals. We do things for ourselves. It’s perfectly fine, until one day you realize that what you have worked for all this years has been in vain. Yet we had a choice to help others who are in need.  You leave this world yes rich and for what? My wish for you is do what is good. And to do what is good, is showing love to others.  Always wake up with that in mind, to change positively someone’s life. There’s also something else, in showing love, you give.

Giving does not necessarily mean you have plenty. It means you can share even the little you have, to your neighbor who is in need. Looking out for one another.  Many people think that the key to happiness is to have a lot of money, cars, and a good house. Sadly that is not true. Whenever you find yourself happy because you have money, you have a new car or even a house, you have a problem. Then what if the money is gone? The point is, there is more to life than money, or in simple words, material things.

You can not build your life loving material things. Love people; show your care to others. Always learn to give. And when you give, you do so with one heart, not expecting anything in return. Now here is what you need know if you truly want to be happy, if you want to be happy, make other people happy. It is that simple, what you choose to do in that course does not matter. My point is, even as you grow; learn to grow a selfless human being.  Serve others, with a clean heart. It is my wish that these values should grow deeply in your hearts. Come to think about it, it’s  a two way traffic, show love to someone today, and tomorrow when you need it, someone else will show it to you. In the end the choice we make depends entirely on our free will.

We all need each other. No one is more important than another, we are all equal.  And as such it is considered wrong in any human morals to look down upon other people because of pride and material things. Il leave you with that to think about.

Touched by grace.

Many people spent their lives, trying to find the answer to a very simple question.

“who am i?” sadly most of them never get to know the answer even when they leavet this world.

In their desperation, they turn to science for answers, and find that science also is at the centre seeking the same answers. most of them  give up their lives and and choose to live,just simply.

Some in their wisdom turn to religion for same answers. some may find the answers others don’t.

For those touched by grace and favoured to know the truth of our lives and who we are; truly it is a very rare gift, one only God can give.

We dont boost about it, but we try as much we can to help others understand and in some way know themselves and who they are. knowing who you are is a very rare gift and comes not from our own wisdom,but from the teaching of the Holyspirit.

It is by the grace of God that i have recieved the salvation. Through salvation i have become a new creation, born of God.

In so doing the spirit of God dwells in me, thus He teaches me, and so that makes me walk in the conciousness of who i am.

It is until you find it reasonable to believe and have faith in the word of God, be born again, receive the Holyspirit you can never know who you are.

Faith comes by hearing the word of God.

Having Faith in God is the right step to starting to know yourself.

Once you’ve known who you are, you will find your purpose in life. God’s purpose in your life.

It is very important because you will live a life of abundace,happiness, and personal contentment even as you grow.

Challenges may come, but you will always rise above them. you begin to live a victorious life.

So at this point you realize how important salvation is to you.

And i pray that you may awaken your sturborn self to the realities that you continually  deny even when your innerself and subconcious says otherwise. 

Human being is a spirit being, living in a body.

Just understand that for you to know yourself you need to waken your spirit,

its when you can understand the things of God.

Its when you can know the purpose of God in your life. and when you know God’s purpose in your life, you will know who you are.

You will begin to florish and live a more fulfilled and happy life.

You receive God’s kind of life. God bless you as you find yourself and purpose in life.

Religion: Just a doctrine instigated by man, not God.

All of us are born without religion. Even though each child born fall by default in the category of its parent’s religion. Babies start being taught this religious doctrine at a tender age. I find it interesting that i can’t stop asking myself, what is so special about religion that we have to label this tiny little babies as Christians, Muslims or even Jews? Why not label them even based on their parents’ political parties they support? Of course we can both agree that this baby is still so young to make decisions about politics, and so do i believe we can also agree so when it comes to religion. I know many will say religion is at the core of humanity morals, and that in most cases as i see, its used for moral policing, but i believe humans can live a moral life without religion.

Like all doctrines religion is taught and learnt. As such, one can choose to ignore or believe in them(religion theories). In that case, any objective observer will make a decision based on the rationalism of the respective religion story. Again we both know children can’t make such rational decisions.

Now we have to agree that some doctrines are extremely radical. You may lame other factors for causing plague and miseries upon humanity, but let’s not forget the elephant in the room called religion. In my view of it, religion is a deadly virus when radicalized as it has been and imposed upon an innocent growing child. We have seen religious radicalized groups rise up(groups like jihad-ism). The rise of sectarian schools in England alone is amazing. These schools segregate and isolate children based on their parents religious lines. The danger of such imposition is that such religious instigator of violence against infidels may cause such religious groups to forget, that they have any other identity other than their own religion group they now belong to. When members of a society with various culture live together, empathy and understanding are increased and this process is very important during the formative and educational early years of a child’s life.

Religion  doctrines should be introduced later in one’s life when they are adults to help them make more rational decisions, based on the sense they make of each religion story. and this will help reduce radicalization of our society.

Again let me make something extremely clear. God exists and we find not only find evidences in our respective religious books, but we also see evidences in our physical world everyday we live. This evidences point out to a higher order than humanity, and the truth is there is only one God. Sadly, humans being human beings, have politicized even the things of God and of supernatural in nature, inspired by their own egos, stupidity and greed. In their own foolishness and malice, have perfectly grafted deceit and orchestrated divide among themselves by introducing religion, to satisfy these ungodly behaviors. The truth is whether you are a Muslim, Christian, or even Jew, you serve a higher order than yourselves and that is God. Having said that, then therefore, i ask one question; what good does religion do us?   Let’s face the truth, religion is here to divide us and not to unite us. Only if we put this differences and aside and join forces then we can unite and serve this one maker of the universe.God.  what a wonderful place this world would be! i can imagine the smile upon God’s face when this happens!

The family bond.

Over the course of my life i have come to believe, we are forever bound to those with whom we share blood. As such this bond gives the ability to define ourselves by our family.. from birth we share their names, entrust them to protect that which we hold most dear. we value them above all others. And yet in most cases we are inevitably forced apart, putting to test, the very bond which bounds us together. I have come to believe also that this family bond can be our greatest strength or our deepest regret. Family is a liability and our loved ones are our weakness. And while we may not choose our families, this bond blesses us with an immeasurable power. But we must also accept what comes with it. This bond gives us the responsibility to love without apology. We can never waver from the power of that bond even if it is tested. This bond nourishes us, gives us strength. Without this bond, that power, we are nothing. Inevitably while we may be forced apart, children in particular turn their backs on those who raised them, seeking lives of their own, they see a family as a terrible burden. Family can be our greatest power or our own undoing. The choice is yours.

Civilization is under siege: part 1

There is some one out there who wants to kill you, me and themselves in what they believe is the highest ideal. This fact is devastating and horrible at the conception of that very thought, which leaves you with just one question to ask. “how safe are you?” Terrorism is here to stay so it seems. but as our attention turns to terrorism, lets not forget the elephant in the room, called religion. it is obvious that everyone needs at the center some sense of meaning about about existence, it is life and death to us. it is what makes us who we are as human beings. yet most of us as we grow up and become responsible adults accept that life is complex, making us live in subtle shades and not black and white. my worry however is that this believers are being persuaded into childish uncertainties,the only truth they need desperately need is GOD, GOD as interpreted for them by their pastors and imams. This is not just a fairy tale i feel sad at the reality of this fact, and this is where i feel our hard earned civilization is under attack. we have seen fundamental American Christianity attack science, and what are they offering instead? a mirror image of Islamic extremism, an American Taliban.  The truth is we at a time of lethal polarization where the world’s greatest religion groups are pushing to the limits where there can be no reconciliation. In New York, Madrid, London, and last week in Paris, where we have witnessed religious insanity  of middle east penetrate the heart of this secular west. what happened in Paris last week where 120 innocent people lost their lives is horrible in every sense of it. Just o understand the likes of these terrorists and people like O. Bin Laden , You have to understand the religion terrorism they inspire, is a logical outcome of the deeply held faith (Jihad-ism). it is more surprising that even the so called moderate believers are part of this religious fabric. Religion encourages non reason, as a positive virtue especially for the believers who are totally impeded and submerged  into that virus called faith. and the result? unfathomable. faith is a virus that encourages  non reason, it is divisive and dangerous. the religious leaders are misleading their congregations. we have both seen people who come in the name of Christ who claim to work miracles but knows not the ways of Christ, they just do it to get into your pocket, and if that’s the case may they rot in eternal hell. it is very clear that region is destroying our civilization. OK the line at the bottom is that religion and its believers have and continue to undermine our efforts towards civilization. think about that!index
