Melanie, our gracious host is back with this weeks SYW questions.
- Can we really know everything?
Knowledge is like a vast ocean. No one can know everything, not even about one topic let alone everything about everything. Let’s all stay humble and admit that we mostly know very little or just nothing. That will open the door to knowledge for us.
- Where were people before they were born?
According to my faith/ belief, all people who are destined to be born, have their souls created at the time of the creation of human beings. They are sent down when a baby is born. So perhaps they are waiting for their turn up there in the heaven.
- Does the Law of Attraction exist? (Law of Attraction as I understand it) is a school of thought where positive thinking brings about good changes. Some say it’s made them wealthy. Others say it improves their health or their outlook on life)
I don’t know that one can be healthy or wealthy by just thinking positive thoughts. Both need us to put work in. But happiness can be a result of positive thinking. And so is unhappiness when the person is always negative. It’s said that gratitude attracts blessings and I find that to be true. Perhaps when we are grateful for what we have, it becomes enough for us, making us happy and contented.
- Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world? If so, why? If nay, why?
Since my presence in the virtual world is very limited, I don’t think it has any effect on my self-love. How I view myself in real life is what counts. If I’m good, I like myself more. If my deeds aren’t up to the standards I’ve set up for myself, I don’t like myself much and try to improve.
Are you happy?
I have so many blessings that I have no reason to be unhappy. I’m healing well, am able to walk mostly without pain and am healthy. My family is doing well and I am grateful to the Almighty Allah for His blessings.
Thank you Melanie for these fun questions.
