Why Did I Become a Muslim.

27 Aug

May we all submit to God and spread God’s Love All Over the World!!

My Spiritual Interpretations of the Quran

Perhaps this is only information for me to keep to myself. But seeing the way the world is the way it is, I feel it is our intentions on revealing the truth that will lead us out of the lies and illusions of this world.

Many times I ask myself deeply, why do I even label myself as a muslim?  I after all, am not ethnically from this region of the Middle East, Africa, or Asia where Islam spread to originally. I am as Northern European as one can get with Celtic druids in my ancestry.

So, WHY am I a muslim today? Because it simply means “submitter to God, or servant”. A long time ago when I learned who Jesus was and his immense character and sense of morality, I made it my point to become like him. As best as I can. Jesus was on another level as…

The Value of Friendship

6 Aug

Timely Blog Post. Spoke to My Heart as I’ve been going through some issues with one whom I thought was a friend who has now been downgraded to acquaintance.

Untangled

So much has been written about friendship; from the trite to profound, but the truth is we (the human race) are a gregarious species. Our survival is dependent upon living in cooperation with others. Part of that living in cooperation is making and having friends, and that is sometimes easier said than done.

As I have been traveling down this healing path, I have had to ponder the question of friendship more than once. Sometimes, I was trying to discern who was no longer healthy for me, because they fed the fuel of my tendency to be taken advantage of by narcissists. Other times, I was un-friended by those couldn’t deal with the fact that I was suffering from PTSD, they just couldn’t handle it.

I pondered four questions: What is friendship? How do friendships endure? What’s the difference between an acquaintance and a friend? And how much do we need…

faith...semras

Faith is like Wi-Fi, it’s invisible, but it has power to connect you to what you need. Faith makes things possible. The Almighty Lord of the universe always gives us what we need in time. Fill your heart with FAITH in Allah and it will become the most peaceful place on earth.

semras 45

The best of mankind is my generation, then those that follow them and then those that follow them. Then there shall come a people after them who will become avaricious, who will love gluttony, and who will give witness before they are asked for it.”

You start dying slowly – Yavaş yavaş ölürler – By Pablo Neruda

18 Jul

Powerful Points to Ponder!!!

YA BAKİ ENTEL BAKİ

semras world.

You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you…

Homeless to lose some spots after 2 New Bedford transitional housing programs lose HUD funding

30 May

Please help.

crackedrearviewer

I’m taking a step back from classic films for a moment to talk with all my fellow bloggers. In my “real” life, I have a job as program director of Network House in New Bedford, MA. It’s part of the Veteran’s Transition House, and a ten bed program for civilians suffering from homelessness and substance abuse. Network House has helped hundreds of people get their lives back on track since it’s inception in 1998.

But no more. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has decided to stop funding transitional programs and go with Housing First, designed to put people directly into permanent housing situations. They feel this is the best way to go, and we, along with other transitional programs, have been defunded as of 4/30/16.

But for the nine men currently residing at Network House, they now have nowhere to go. They came to us directly from detoxes…
