Live to Do Good

Did you smell the bad smoke in the air? When you close your eyes, do you hear the beautiful chirping of the birds? I don't. When I scoop the water running down the stream, its color is milky brown - like the Afghan Chai with milk. Yeah, I'm sorry for being a negative person, but I can't deny my vision. Our world is drifting into chaos and some of us are in delusion. Some of us thinks this chaos is good. Some of us thinks chaos is holy. Some of us wants to rupture the world. Some of us wants to explode themselves into paradise. Well, good luck! Check your heart and see if it beats in humbleness to God or does it beat in anger or pride? Some of us suffer because of what some of us do. But still many of us are not aware of the chaos around them. Some of us look only at the man in the mirror. We get mad cause the hairspray won't stick the bangs up - on the man in the mirror. We get so sad cause there's no more chocolate ice-cream in the freezer. Who cares how many Geraldos, homeboys or breastmilk-leaking mothers* are killed in the war on T. Who cares if Saddam or his people got nothing to do with the war on T. They're all in it now. Now it's all a big war on T, and unless people stop getting depressed over ice-creams, bangs, dopes and what-have-you's, the war on T will be on all of us. When it is, then we've got no chance to decide if life is worth living or not. It's time to get up and do something good. The world needs peace. We're in this world to do good. The Prophet said: "None of you should long for death, for if he is a good doer, he may increase his good deeds, and if he is an evil-doer, he may stop the evil deeds and repent." (Bukhari collection #2211) *********************************************** *Breastfeeding mothers who separate from their infants will have a letdown moment when their infants usually suck milk. If the infant is not there, the milk may leak out at that moment for a few days until the hormonal cycle is aware of the infant's absence.
