Holy man
starring Eddie Murphy

I have seen this movie several times already and everytime when I watch, I would still laugh at the comedy part of the movie. But this movie is more then a comedy, if you can understand the essence of what the movie is all about.

His simple life makes us feel that life should be lived in this way. Simple and enjoyable and you will seem to have everything you ever need.

He wants nothing and he willingly gives everything. He can have everything we normal people yearns to have but it’s means nothing to him. His purity and pure love radiates and everyone could feel it.

If you want to enjoy everything in your life, you must yearn for nothing..

When you want nothing, everything is yours hehehe.

Rather complicated isn’t it hehe

A very controversial issue that has plague the islamic religion in the 21st century.  But listen and view this video, you get a better picture of what it was really meant to be. There are many reasons behind this polygamy marriage and mis-interpreted.

I have read it somewhere that it was because of the holy wars between the Christians and Muslims, where most of the muslim man & boys have gone to war and that the population of men & boys have depleted while the women & girls soars and it has become a social problem because a lot of women will never find a husband due to the shortage of men & boys. Another issue is that the large widow population among the muslim community due to their death of husbands in the war. Something has to be done and that’s why the marriage of 4 wives became law to solve their social problems. Today, well you can’t just suddenly abolish it and of course there are some cases where men manipulate it for their sexual desires. But then how to draw a line between sexual desires and serving the community. Therefore, to have 4 wives is actually to solve a community problem but does it apply today? If you watch the clip above of Ahmad Deedat speech , it still does but then he mentioned that in the quran, it is an option, not a must.

Marco Polo

Marco Polo

It is hard to believe but there are such practice in the name of GOD.  Refer to picture below which I  have copied from Marco Polo’s travels book – from “Peking to Bengal” It is customary that when men from foreign land comes, the husbands will bring them to their tents to let their women entertain them while the husbands have to stay away until the foreigner decides to leave. It is a custom that if they do that, their GOD will be pleased and will enriched them with temporal blessings in great abundance.

A virgin in this land is considered being cursed by their gods, if she is favored by god then men should favor or want them, meaning to say, if you are a virgin then you must have done something wrong to the gods that’s why men don’t sleep with you.

So no man in their right mind will marry a virgin. A woman is worthless if she has no experience of sex with men. The more men she have sex with, the more precious and reputable she becomes.

This place is somewhere in Tibet according to the travels of Marco Polo.

mmmm sounds like –  Holy Prostitution?

this picture has nothing to do marco polo's travels but merely to show how tibetan women dress up

Tibetan women - note: this picture has nothing to do marco polo's travels but merely to show how tibetan women dress up

Just as I have thought so, it turns out to be prostitution

From a holy practice, soon the ease of making a living with sex is so easy and profitable, the religion now has a 2nd agenda,  not that I agree with the 1st agenda or the 2nd agenda but it’s our human manipulation of religion as a base to make something  acceptable because it is beneficial but then again if a religion is not beneficial to it’s believers, it will gradually fade away. So the search of GOD continues and evolves.

Life after death

Almost all religion I suppose talks about life after death. What does it really mean to us? What’s so important that we have to believe that there is life after death?

I ask myself first, logically if there is life after death, will I be the same person?

I presume it is NOT because if I am then I should know my previous one before this one or maybe this is my first one but then have you ever heard of some one saying it’s the 2nd life or their 100th life? nor has any normal thinking person say Oh I did come across this experience or that experience in my previous lives. No..

so that means it has nothing to do with this life, your previous and your next life, you (as in the name now) don’t exist anymore when you die, so what’s so important or crucial about this life compared to the next? Now to make matters worse, which religion’s next life is the correct path. Yup, it’s complicated which explains the turmoil of our world that we live in. If you look closely at all the wars, it boils down to religion and their beliefs. People die in the name of god or die in the belief that it’s for god.

But if you really take a religious book and read, it preaches love and only love and non voilence.  Something is wrong somewhere.  There must be some misinterpretation somewhere.

Anyone reading this, be my guest, I am sure alot of people would like to know the answer…

In search of GOD

A topic that is a taboo in the olden days, if it was a few hundreds ago, I think my head would have been chopped off. hehe I know most of us would avoid such kinds of discussion because it is a serious matter and beliefs are something we don’t discuss openly.

No, I am not going to start preaching here or try to convert anyone to whatever kind of religion. I am not going to dilute anyone’s belief of a certain religion here. Well, it is the 21st century and we cannot hide anymore. No religion or government will burn books to condemn a certain religion because the internet has links to almost any kind of religion or occult that you can think of. It’s merely a click away.

We have come a long way in search of GOD, beliefs of god which were once terrifying are now just ancient monuments of a silly past or probably a King's way to rule over their subjects

We have come a long way in search of GOD, beliefs of god which were once terrifying are now just ancient monuments of a silly past or probably a King's way to rule over their subjects whereby Kings were considered as gods which probably now we see them as a trick to keep their subjects from revolts

In search for GOD is to question yourself, to strengthen your belief if you have any and to know what the other parts of the world thinks in terms of their meaning of  GOD. Needless to say, everyone knows there are so many religions and beliefs and how complicated this issue is and I think it will be a very interesting topic to discuss. Why do certain groups of people do certain things in the name of religion or in the name of GOD. The more we listen to others, the more we understand why.

Reasoning is not always the best method to understanding GOD but then what other ways do we have? Are we to close our eyes, clear our minds and just believe in it? Are we to just ignore the facts and follow our intuitions? A simple Yes will solve everything but then in reality it is not that simple.

Some people swear they were atheist but when they confront with death, the first word out of their mouth is oh thank god when they escape or cheated death. Being in a country of multi-racial and so many cultures, it would be interesting to know what others think or believe in order that we understand why they do so in their culture.

Could it be one day, a thousand over years from now, they would laugh at us how silly we have been as we now see the Egyptians in our religion and beliefs.

The human mind always fear the unknown, when man steps onto the moon, to most Asians, it was once a god but now with the understanding that it's just another small planet, the moon festival is now just another old asian culture,some still do while some don't anymore

I will make a series in this category “In search of GOD”  because we can’t answer or discuss in just one posting. It will be an endless and endless series as we touch on a certain interesting topic of a specific culture. Should you like to share anything here, please email to me at 7uncle@live.com.my and I shall post it up.
