The difference between hell and heaven is a mindset

the sacrifice of one An old teaching tale goes like this: A young man wanted to know the difference between Heaven and Hell.

The sage led him to two rooms with observation portals, one labeled Heaven and one Hell.

Looking in at Hell he saw a banquet table filled with luscious food but the people at the table were emaciated and distressed. Their spoons had long handles to reach the food, but the handles were too long to bring the food to their mouths.

Then he looked in on Heaven. Same table full of luscious food. Same long spoons. But the people were healthy and happy and using their long-handled spoons to feed one another.

The 2017 World Predictions – Between reality and illusion, between today and tomorrow

Last year, out of curiosity, I decided to translate the predictions of Michel Hayek for the year of 2016. The article proved to be popular so I decided to do a preliminary translation of the 2017 predictions.

Disclaimer:

  1. I am not a professional translator and I do this as a hobby.
  2. I do not claim the accuracy of the translation below.
  3. I did not translate everything. I skipped many things including predictions of events that are very local to the Arab region and Lebanon.
  4. Please watch the original video with the help of an interpreter if you want to know about all of his predictions.

As Michel Hayek said in his interview, the title of his predictions for the year of 2017 is:

Between reality and illusion, between today and tomorrow

Hello Readers,

If I had to summarize the year of 2016, I would say it was full of reflections and lessons hard learned. I had to cut loose a lot of things that bother me, get rid of friends that no longer suit me and take hard decision about my career and personal happiness.

A day trip to Manhattan, New York City

Back in August, while visiting Boston, I took the Saturday morning Amtrak train to the Pennsylvania Station, New York City. It was a pleasant 4 hours ride in the train. After I arrived, I left the station and found myself in the center of Manhattan.

I was greeted by a bus tour saleswoman. I figured, why not, let me ride the tour bus and familiarize myself with the city. Unfortunately, it was raining the most part of the day.

It was a very busy day. People everywhere and there were barely room for pedestrians. The trash bins were full, homeless people were everywhere and the city was very very dirty. It felt like a zoo. Manhattan is not like what you see on TV. In reality it is a dog eat dog city. People were pushing each other and were very unfriendly. Later that day, I did my best to go away from Times Square and deep into the other parts of Manhattan. The further I got away from Manhattan the more tolerable and pleasant the city felt to me. What struck me most was that on each block you would find a pizza place. No wonder why the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who live in New York, love Pizza 😉 Continue reading
