A Real Life Story - The Cheating Lebanese Husbands

Ignoring Negative Comments
A contest was planned for 50 turtles to race up a steep hill to reach the top of the hill.
As the race started, for some illogical reason, the crowd felt that the hill was too steep and dangerous for the turtles to reach the top so they started screaming for the turtles to come back...
After so much screaming all but one turtle gave up the race and came back. One turtle kept on going up the hill ignoring the repeated screams to come back... until he reached the top.
When they asked him why he would not return, they found out that her was deaf.
The moral of the story: Those who ignore negative comments, succeed.
Do you enjoy Smoking?!...
When you smoke, you fill your lungs with poisonous chemicals and hazardous materials like Arsenic, Benzene, Benzoapyrene, Butane, Formaldehyde, Lead, Cadmium that you can readily inhale inside your body.
When you inhale, these toxins are drawn into your lungs, through the porous lining of your lungs, and directly into your blood stream to do enormous damage to your heart, arteries, veins, kidneys and brain and stay in your body for years. They expedite the development of clots and strokes...
Cigarette Smoking is the only form of cancer you can stop. But... why stop it?... Smoking cigarettes is directly responsible for close to 90% of lung cancer cases and causes most cases of emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
Although it is the only form of cancer that you can actually stop, why stop it? Keep smoking until you find out that you have developed cancer of the lungs, cancer of the breast, cancer of colon... and watch it metastasize to your liver and bones... as you enjoy a slow painful death at a young age... Then you can stop smoking...
Cigarette smoke causes a great deal of harm to those who smoke, but it can cause even more harm to those who obtain this smoke second-hand. So, spread the wealth and bring cancer to as many people by smoking right at the entrance of a supermarket...
You can enjoy killing your spouse, your kids and innocent people outside that you subject to your second-hand smoke. Over 1,000,000 children have experienced aggravated asthma symptoms due to secondhand smoke. Damage to the heart, caused by secondhand smoke, is cumulative and often irreversible.
So... Enjoy smoking!...
In Memory of Morton Downey, Jr., the controversial feisty talk show host who even smoked on the air... telling everyone that smoking felt good... and has no dangers.
Robert Downey, Jr. developed cancer of the lungs... and died an untimely death... In his last days, he made a touching commercial where he admitted the fateful mistake that caused in life and referred to himself as "Magma Cum Lousy"!... Rest in peace, Morton.
Image of God!...
So... can you picture God deceiving others?... lying to others?... a gossiping?...
Can you imagine God with a crappy attitude or mean-spirited?
Can you imagine God discriminating against people just because they are short or fat?
Can you imagine God scheming underhandedly and doing bad deeds?
Why do you?
Do you feel that you are choosing to live your life in the image of God... or in the image of Flunkoo?
The Noble Truths!
As you savor the indulgences of life... there comes a time when you must explore the world from a broader perspective with an open mind and open heart... in search of enlightenment, truth and understanding.
You must search within yourself... and learn how to be free from suffering.
Learn how to master the Four Noble Truths...
The cause and effect of suffering: Unrealistic expectations and lack of knowledge (unawareness) lie at the root of suffering.
Unrealistic expectations keep you unfulfilled and craving things that can never be satisfied. As a result, craving them can only bring suffering.
Ignorance lies in failing to see the world as it actually is. Without an open mind and deep insight, your mind is left undeveloped and unable to grasp the true nature of things.
Vices, such as greed, envy, hatred and anger, derive from ignorance.
How to end suffering: You can end suffering by striving to constantly be in a transcendent state of bliss... kindness... and return to love... so you may be free from suffering... and reach spiritual enlightenment.
The Noble Eightfold Path that leads to the end of suffering: The 8 steps lie in the Right Understanding, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration.
Moreover, there are three themes into which the Path is divided: good moral conduct (Understanding, Thought, Speech); meditation and mental development (Action, Livelihood, Effort), and wisdom or insight (Mindfulness and Concentration).
Free Will refers to good or bad actions you choose to take during your lifetime.
Good actions involve either the absence of bad actions, or doing good acts, such as generosity, righteousness, and meditation, and will bring about happiness.
Bad actions, such as lying, stealing or killing will bring about suffering.
The "importance" that each action carries is determined by how frequent, how repetitive; how determined, how intentional; actions performed without regret; and, the actions that carry the most rewards or punishment in Life and the hereafter, are actions, good or bad, you take toward someone who is helpful.
