Memorizing The Facts!

Standard

There are 3 jobs i wanted and dreamed to become :Being detective,Writer and/or psychiatrist !
I’m Like any normal girl ,I lived in Egypt ,went to public school ,then college and get the certificate that i can just hang on the wall or soak it in the water then drink its water .In other words ,it’s so useless !!
I remember Adel Amam’s famous Quote in one of his plays ‘’de bald bat3et shahdat” “it’s a country that like certificates” and it’s so true ,we judge others status or education by their certificates instead of their actual knowledge while if we see the most successful people ,we would find most of them didn’t complete their studies or dropped out of school like Bill gates but they chased their passions and learn through self-study and get what they wanted and become successful !
tell me how many people who really Study something because they are interested in it or because they Luv it and want to learn more about it??? you can count these people on the fingers of one hand. Most of the students think of just passing the exams and their relationship with studying and books end there with the finals .They broke up becoz this relationship isn’t based on true love but rather the need to get something done and that’s it!!

since i was a little kid ,I was taught to memorize ,Learn everything by heart even in math or science ,we would study Facts ,facts and nothing but facts ,it’s Like “hard times” in dickens novel !!
and when I graduated I faced the hard and harsh reality ,No jobs!
All these years i wasted in studying and then Nothing! Yeah ,our government teaches us to be independent ,Go and find a job for yourself!
Most of the students in our beloved Country Lost faith in Learning.Let me tell you why
first ,you teach them from childhood like 5 or 6 to memorize ,and when these little curious creatures start to ask questions ,they got suppressed becoz who are you to question the teacher? or it’s just like that “haya kda” ,you will know later when you grow up!!

then when the children grow up ,they go to elementary school and they study more facts for 3 years .following that The Nightmare ,The horror which is called “High School” or as we call it in Egypt “ el thanwya el 3amma” and since it starts ,you find your parents putting so much pressure on you to study and study and never leave the book becoz your whole life and future depends on how high your score in the exams and that the more you memorize ,the better your chances of getting high grade and getting to the college you dream of or ironically the one your parents want !!

after leaving High school with its ups and downs ,you find the college world not much different but more years you spend in memorizing and that’s true for all the colleges like Law ,arts ,education ,etc etc .After you graduate ,you find that you wasted most of your years memorizing facts that you never use in real life or don’t benefit you in any practical way!
For God sake,Stop Memorizing!! understand why the hell you are doing this? what’s the point? if we are gonna change the future ,we must think of a creative way of doing things !
I Lost faith in the education system and come to embrace the self-study approach ,Study what you love, forget about “Study” ,that very word makes you feel like you gonna just work hard to get a high score on an exam .READ ,EXPlore,Discover ,Be curious about the world and USE your Brain to think about stuff that interest you .IF we have one life ,at least spend it Doing Something you actually Love and passionate about,anything else is just waste of time,money and effort and really doesn’t matter!

The letting go experiment

Standard

Click image to read the book

Currently I’m reading the book “Letting go : The pathway of surrender” and It’s about how to Let go of your attachments and desires ,how to let go of your emotions that bind you and keep you miserable .This book is really transforming and life-changing ,it puts everything in perspective I have to share this simple technique of Letting go becoz its results is mind-blowing 


Here’s an excerpt from the book


“Here was the initial experience with letting go of desire.

Personal goals were written down, followed by a letting go of the desire for them. It sounds paradoxical but that is the process: identify the goals and then let go of wanting them. One goal that had been held in mind for several years was an apartment in New York City, because work commitments required a lot of commuting and money spent on hotel rooms. A small apartment in the city—a so-called pied-à-terre—would be the economical solution. “Apartment in New York City” was written down as a goal. When utilizing this way of achieving goals, we include all of the details, as impossible as they may seem to the rational mind to achieve. So, the ideal apartment was detailed: reasonably priced, on Fifth Avenue in the 70s block, right next to an entrance to Central Park, at least eight or nine floors up and in the rear so that the street noise would be minimized, and not any bigger than about two and a half rooms.”


“The next day at work, it was busy as usual, with a big caseload, meetings, and patient visits. In between the meetings and patients, the feeling of wantingness for the apartment would be acknowledged and let go. And, as the day progressed, the apartment was actually forgotten. At 4:30 P.M., after the last patient, there was suddenly the impulse to drive into the city. Despite the fact that it was ostensibly rush hour, the road was clear and the drive took only half an hour. The car cruised to about 73rd and Lexington, pulling up to the nearest real estate office. Rather magically, there happened to be a parking space open right in front of the real estate office. The real estate officer, upon hearing the tongue-in-cheek announcement that an apartment on Fifth Avenue was desired, looked with surprise and said, “Well, you are certainly in luck! Exactly one hour ago we listed the only apartment for rent on all of Fifth Avenue, at 76th Street, on the ninth floor. It’s the rear apartment, two and a half rooms, and the rent is reasonable (rent-controlled at $500.00 a month). It has just been painted and you can move in any time.” So we walked over and viewed the apartment. It fit the description of the goal exactly. The lease was signed on the spot! Thus, within 24 hours of trying the letting go technique on a specific personal goal, the goal was a reality. It had been something that was almost impossible to find, and yet it happened exactly as pictured, effortlessly, and with no negative emotions. It was an easy and joyous experience.

This is not an unusual experience but a typical one, because in this case the desire was moderate and could, without much effort, be totally surrendered. By being totally surrendered, this means that it was okay if the apartment happened, and it was okay if it didn’t. Because of being totally surrendered, the impossible became possible, manifesting itself effortlessly and rapidly.”

 

when I read that I was skeptical,I thought this is too good to be true and only lucky people find things that easy but I was willing to give this experiment a try 

I wrote my goal down and I started with something small and it was buying clothes 

I wrote everything I wanted : the color,the price ,the size and the feelings It would make me feel when I wear it 

And then I let it go ,I said to myself wether I find it or not ,it’s okay with me and that’s the most important step of letting go and I went to a certain shop I know and lo and behold I found everything I wanted almost as I wrote it down ,it blew my mind .I said this technique really works!

And it’s so simple and anyone can do it ,choose any goal you want, write it down and be very specific ,write everything you want then let go of that goal ,say to yourself “it’s okay wether I have this thing or not ,it’s okay with me” .you also have to feel it deeply within you ,you can’t just say the words while your feelings are telling you something else .work on it and every time you feel attached to your goal ,let it go and voila it manifests in front of your eyes ,what a joyful experience 🙂

Life is meant to be easy ,just give it a try and see for yourself like I did.

About Dreams

We should dream big ,there is no limits in this world only the ones we put for ourselves!
Dream and believe in ur dream and soon it will become a reality .

If success or any goal in our lives become like breathing,it will be easy to get and nothing will stand in ur way becoz it will become a matter of life or death!
I think the reason we don’t chase our dreamz or procrastinate is that we don’t need them badly enough or we try to put limits for ourselves like how and when!
believe me when i say ,it’s all in ur mind ,change ur negative thoughts into positive ones and everything will change
ppl who think that they  r good that way  feeling so comfortable in their “comfort zone” and have no ambitions to do more ,they live and die Like so-called “Average ppl” but there is no such a thing ,we all unique .we all Have dreamz but we should dream and dictate our life for a cause that help and inspire others as well.something bigger than US!!
All the famous and successful ppl had  big dreams and goals in their mind that wasn’t personal but for the benefit of all humanity .these ppl changed lives and r still remembered and inspire millions around the world to chase their dreamz as well
The founder of Apple company Steve jobs is one of those ppl who changed the technology and the computers as we know it .Most ppl now carry Iphone or Ipad or anything connected to Apple Inc .so it’s not luck but dedication and believing in their dreamz that made them reach it!
Leave ur footprints today ,Leave a legacy so ur Life will be remember forever and ever
My wish and dream  is to be a writer and inspire my ppl with my words even if i inspired just one person ,that would be great achievement to me and will make me proud of myself 🙂
Being Motivational speaker was also one of my dreamz ,i guess that’s why i’m sucker for Motivation and inspiration articles and quotes 😀
