Islam helps youWritten by Wael El-Manzalawy
I discussed many persons who were against religion of any kind. I used to ask them three questions. I used ,as well, to invite them to think deeply and clearly before answering my questions. These questions are: 1-Do you think that there is a Creator who has created this universe? 2-Should we worship Creator of universe or not? 3-Have you made a comparison between Islam and other doctrines?
As regards first question, I do not know reason that makes some people deny presence of God. The universe, sky, stars, sea, air are clear evidences that there is a Creator who has created this universe. The greatness of universe is a clear evidence that a Great God has created it. The answer of first question leads us to necessity of religion. How can you live in this universe without worshipping Creator of universe?
THE PATH LESS TRADED…THE SPIRITUAL ROAD TO FINANCIAL ABUNDANCE!Written by Dr. Scott Brown, Ph.D.
There is nothing more valuable to a sentient being then peace of mind that comes from living each day from a place of love. The alternative is an existence where perception is based on fear as taught to us by ego. The ego teaches us that we are separate from one another; that grandiosity through competitiveness is path to our greatness because scarcity of resources is nature of our existence.
For this reason greatest spiritual teachers of modern times teach necessity of discarding ego as a guide to our thoughts and actions. Buddha for instance came to see that in absence of ego our minds are all united into a collective consciousness. The mind that is voice of “A Course in Miracles” and who’s name is poorly translated into word “Jesus” came to see that in absence of ego our mind’s fuse into a collective mind he calls “Sonship.” The shadowy figure of “Don Juan” chipped away at Carlos Casteneda’s ego like a jackhammer using spiritual knowledge from a Mesoamerican point of view.
Each great teacher shows us that there is a higher collective mind that is ready and willing to be our true guide if we will but listen and follow. Is this true inner guide voice for our collective Mind and great Mind that created our collective mind? Is laying aside of ego path to our collective grandeur as opposed to a separate and petty grandiosity offered up to us by our perceived little separate selves?
Because of my position as finance professor and doctor of financial economics I meet many very wealthy people who seek my consultation or mastermind communion. The most successful rich people I have met extend a striking contrast to those individuals I consider rich but unsuccessful. The first group of wealthy individual is guided by love of all that they perceive in this world and live following a loving guide that only perceives abundance around us. These truly wealthy individuals extend love to everyone they meet and promoting knowledge that all of us are equals and capable of greatness. The second group follows a miserly and fearful guide that only perceives lack in world. Such individuals display great financial wealth but are truly poor because they project fear onto all they meet as they attack or defend themselves to stave off scarcity they perceive in world about them.
