LETTING GO AND HAVE FAITH

When I am sad or feel so down, I prefer to be silent and keep it within myself. Unintentionally or maybe intentionally I can read word of encouragement related to my situation. And it makes me strong.

When something is over, it can never start again.
When it's broken, you can never put the pieces back.
Sometimes life doesn't go the way you want it to be.
When you know that someone is hurting you,
Try to stop.
It hurts a lot, but you must learn to let go.
Don't push yourself too much
Because in every ending, there such a word called: 'BEGINNING".

A forward email from a high school classmate:

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD Good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student : Yes.
Professor : My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD
to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who
are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent )

Professor : You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young
Fella.
Is GOD Good?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
Student : From . . GOD .
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make
everything. Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer)

Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness?
All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who Created them ?

(Student had no answer)

Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and
Observe the World around you.
Tell me, son . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your
GOD?
Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD
for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol,
Science says your GOD doesn't exist.
What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor : Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat,
superheat, mega Heat, white Heat, a Little Heat
or No Heat.
But we don't have anything called Cold.
We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat,
but we can't go any further after that.
There is no such thing as Cold.
Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of
Heat.
We cannot Measure Cold.
Heat is Energy.
Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence
of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing
as Darkness?
Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir.
Darkness is the Absence of Something
You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light,
Flashing Light . . .
But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing
and its called Darkness, isn't it?
In reality, Darkness isn't.
If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness
Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.
You argue there is Life and then there is Death,
a Good GOD and a Bad GOD.

You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite,
something we can measure.

Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought.
It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen,
much less fully understood either one.

To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant
of the fact that

Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.

Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of
it.

Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that
they evolved from a Monkey?

Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary
Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes,
sir?

( The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where
the Argument was going )

Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution
at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an
On-Going Endeavor,

Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir?

Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class was in Uproar )

Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the
Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke out into Laughter )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's
Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . .
No one appears to have done so.
So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical,
Stable, Demonstrable Protocol,
Science says that You have No Brain, sir.

With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your
Lectures, sir?

( The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student,
his face unfathomable )

Professor : I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly !
The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH.
That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.

I believe you have enjoyed the Conversation . . . and if so . .
You'll probably want your Friends / Colleagues to enjoy the same . . won't you?
Forward them to Increase their Knowledge . . . or FAITH.
That student was Albert Einstein
