Day 4 of citizen journalism on #irancoronavirus #COVID19

Picking up from yesterday's thread
There were a few videos from last night. Most important one is this which appears to show a cemetery morgue dedicated to #COVID19 victims in Qom. There are literally dozens of bodies and the voice claims it is the new normal for them.

"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

Exactly. Some have understood, and taken advantage of this, for millennia. Think about it folks. Then go study.

Ever hear the term "court J3w"? Not *just* bankers. jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/4709-…
"Note that ‘Fool’ is derived from ‘follis’, a wind-bag*. Even etymology gives the attribution to Air. Also, to puff out the cheeks is a gesture implying _readiness to create_, in the sign-language of Naples."

"This card is attributed to the letter Aleph, which means an Ox, but by its shape the Hebrew letter (so it is said) represents a ploughshare; thus the significance is primarily #Phallic. It is the first of the three Mother letters, Aleph, Mem, and Shin..."

PPOPHET MUHAMMAD’S LAST SERMON

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah) on the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (12th and last month of the Islamic year), 10 years after Hijrah (migration from Makkah to Madinah) in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat.
His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the ENTIRE HUMANITY .
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.

Interpersonal interactions play a major role in quality of #life. People strive for positive interactions yet they can be upsetting.

Becoming aware of what one wishes to #experience interpersonally is a great first step to feeling:

#loved
respected
understood
In-control
#Happy
Next, try and become aware of what you did and said as well as what the other person did or said in response.

Notice the responses of yourself and the other person. Is what you wished for what happened? If not, maybe there is a pattern that can explain recurrent negativity.
To figure out what the wish guiding your patterns of relating to others might be, consider the response of the other person. Were they:
Antagonistic
Controlling
Detaching
Subservient
Sometimes responses of others can inform our awareness of our unconscious or #implicit motives.

There is no understanding without a #meaningful effort
We #achieve meaningful effort only by #failing and #trying again
#Effort teaches you to be #practical

#Understanding will bring #trust and #patience

#OSHO

#Faith happens only when the #duality has fallen; it is not a #belief against #doubt.

When belief and doubts both have disappeared, then something happens which is faith, which is #trust.
When desiring disappears there is trust!

#Trust means moving with #life without any #expectations, #desires, demands of your own. Not #asking, not #complaining. Whatsoever happens, #accepting it with deepest #gratitude and #awareness.
Simply seeing the #reality, that the #opposite is implied everywhere, #trust happens.

It is not in any #helplessness that you #accept. It is simply the nature of #life that the opposite is implied.

Looking at the #fact, #truth, deep inside you, gives you trust..

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Empathy (narrowly FEELING another's pain) prompts us to care deeply about a dozen Thai kids trapped in a cave...#good. Compassion (love, understanding, & concern in the face of suffering) causes us to care about them AND the tragic flooding of 1000's in Japan...#better (cont.)
Empathy shines a narrow spotlight on the few, and can cause us to overreact and act short-term to relieve pain. You can't empathize with 100's or with a statistical abstraction like massive flooding. You empathize with one story at a time, and you FEEL it personally. (cont.)
Compassion involves understanding, concern, and love in response to suffering wherever it's found. You don't assume the suffering as your own, but you act sustainably to try and relieve it. This may involve "tough love..." say, with addiction (cont.)
