اضِحك.. بملئ قلبك

اضحك ..وكأن اليوم الذي مضى لم يكُن

اضِحك ..على كل ما لم يأتِ
لأن هناك ما سيأتي أجمل مِنه

اضِحك حُبًا لكل نقاءٍ ترآه بعينك

اضِحك وافرد جنآحًا لحلمٍ ما يزآل يسكُنك

اضحك .. فلن تشقى والله دومًا معك

“Believing in God is a form of mild mental illness!”

Unless as George Michael said, ‘you’ve gotta have faith.’ (Well I guess it would be nice.) Believing in anything that has no logical foundation and no empirical evidence to back it up apart from books that were written millennia ago is a long fa... Read more of this blog post »

Quiet  The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain

Sometimes you read a book that truly does change your life. Susan Cain's "Quiet" is that book for me. I had known for years that I was an introvert, and that I had been in some ways oppressed by extroverts my whole life. But this book put the science into western society's "extrovert ideal" tha...

Notice, faith is not based on a feeling. It is full of substance, for it is based on evidence. What evidence?

I could say it’s the oily feathers that mesmerized me as a child,
and continues to hold my attention as an adult.
It’s the deepest black I’ve ever known or seen,
the seed of midnight,
and how it exists naturally on an animal
is a product of perfect genetic magic.

To call it evil is absurd.
