ABRAHAM (Ibrahim in the Islamic world) & To all my great GRANDCHILDREN

26 07 2014

Happy Day

Nearing the final days of the Holy month of RAMADAN, as a long-time resident of Turkey, I am HAPPY. The sun is shining, my neighbours, all adhering to those Islamitic traditions of the RAMAZAM (=Turkish) are happily together, talking, eating at sun-set and automatically also I am – sort of – following such a daily habit.
But in truth and reality: I do have my OWN set of daily habits as well.

That means: WORK – WORK – WORK at keeping me and my dearest loved ones INFORMED about being healthy, wealthy and wise. These important 3 of course mean everything to everyone of CHINESE origin.
I love that WISDOM.
But someone needs KNOWLEDGE how to achieve this.

And implementing knowledge on a regular daily basis definitely needs STAMINA, persistence. In order to do so, someone needs to the ability to think, certainly about recently FOUND information.

My life is filled with such great issues and whether others are fasting, not fasting, and having a wonderful family gathering, as is the custom, tradition during this peak RAMADAN period must not stop me *doing my thing*.

The current possibility to gather information online makes me a very contented user of the search engines until I find what I happen to be interested in. I manage to get about 5 hours of solid non-stop reading, absorbing, until my bodily functions begin warning me to stop for the day and get up, go, do some other useful work, such as preparing a meal.

Oh well, I usually say to myself: all good stuff I got out of the search engines at such a moment in time: very useful, rather important, however: after a while when I myself happen to stumble upon what I did store on my office PC: umngh..did I collect this?
Fortunately I do not have to remember when I collected such information since the PC with Windows 7 Pro automatically registers that.

Now, these days I am very often DELETING information, deciding either YES, I know this or Yikes: I do not want to look at this ever again, even: I do not want to have it stored on my PC.
At first I got a bit nervous stumbling on information, anxious NOT to be able to find it again. Of course and yes: store the link in *your favorites*, which I used to do, however for years now I rarely use them.
It means that the search engines are very very good, also: so much excellent information is now available provided by others through their website that I at least no longer feel anxious that I cannot find information I am looking for, either to refresh my own memory, update my own dusty knowledge.

Oh yes: about ABRAHAM: the man who began looking for a better place and life for his entire family – he started all 3 major religions: i.e. Judaism, Islamism, Christianism.

AMAZING!! honestly, my eyes rapidly began to read and read, until I just had to stop on the first day of this colossal topic I allowed myself to become aquainted with, and without one shadow of a doubt – rather superficially, not even scratching to surface.

But how for Pete’s sake did I get there? Brr…don’t ask me. However: I made notes, handwritten ones, even numbering the sequence in which I worked, lucky me or else I would now be very upset not being able to *refresh* my memory.

Yes: got it !!, on page 13 (A5 sized) there is is: OMNISCIENCE in big fat capitals.
So: the earlier 12 pages I wrote down for myself led to this word OMNISCIENCE.

What is it? Well – my departure point on that day (22nd July,2014) was the word LOGIC. You see it was the first word that jumped at me as soon as I got out of bed that day – in DUTCH I must tell you – saying to myself muttering under my breath *it must be LOGICAL i.e. realistic, reasonable.
OK then – I said eventually, let me start researching and of course I landed myself onto pages that only have to do with PHILOSOPHY. Quite interesting, I need to study philosophy so of course: LOGIC I read and continued until OMNISCIENCE, with rather a lot of information in between that I need to WORK on a lot more.

Again: Omniscience entails: the CAPACITY to know everything that there is to know.

Well I said to myself: that makes sense then. But as a note: and I quote *Mainly in religious ABRAHAMIC: Judaism, Christianity & Islam it is believed there is a divine being who is omniscient* i.e. God of course.

That much also I knew – that people consider God (or Allah or Jaweh) to know everything. It is definitely not so that I believe this, simply because I am not like that. I am not a religious person..
But about this ABRAHAM: YES I wanted to read as much as I could possibly read. I read where he originated from – apparently I say – since some critical practical persons spent lifetimes to establish whether or not this is really true. NO PROOF you see is available that Abraham really existed.
However – because it is so easy to find information I went on and on, until at a certain moment I really got confused, racing through *who=who* in the Abraham geneology.
Pff. I have to stop, throw some shortcuts on my desktop, organize the notes about what I originally began researching: LOGIC and get myself something to eat.

In addition I came across so many more interesting words and topics about which I either know nothing, or just a little, that at least I can say: enough to be busy with *when I have a moment*.
To everyone who lives on our planet I am saying, including myself meekly: it is NOT possible to know everything. And honestly for me leaving everything in God’s hands is 100% NOT an option.
Nonetheless: learning more about ABRAHAMICS is quite interesting. It was the very first time I decided to go into it, speed-reading. It is a start, is it not, better late than never.
I located from where these good people originated: Ur of Chaldee, in the Euphrate – Tigres area. Well, how about that I established: also where WRITING originated – Sumer, now in Iraq, about 100 km north of current Bagdad, geographically. The CHALDEANS, by the way, are also part of such ancient, and most likely thruthful history. Well I established: I have gone into most of that, already long before I had access to Internet, but no reason NOT to read more and better information soon.

I came across the Chaldeans already in 1988, after reading a book written by one of the best astrologers of our modern days: Linda Goodman. They worked with geometry, astrology, and above all with the *magic* numbers. That then appealed to me. Now I read that those Chaldeans actually were *invaders*, not Jewish, not Christian, and not Islamitic, they just arrived in the area, warmongering, slaying in order to overtake the ruler. Therefore: hmm…I suddenly thought a lot less of them, i.e. they dropped below zero in my esteem. So I need update myself. Linda Goodman stressed that theirs is the ONLY Kabbalistic numerology and NOT the Jewish Kabbalistic one, which today people also use.

In conclusion: I collected a lot, yes a lot of information, worth my while and to work on. I even went back to the beginnings of our planet Earth – geometry, as earth matter, rather gruesome, a bubbly volcanic planet apparently, donkeys year ago called The Hadean era, 4.5 billion years ago, apparently. Brr.
Oh yes I said: where good old king HADES ruled, at least according to GREEK mythology. Again: Brr. not now, when I dived into all that about 5 months ago, with spring about to start. I love the good, current planet Earth stuff, such as new leaves, fresh veggies and fruit + modern day technologies enabling me to have a decent and happy life, not to leave out: MONEY to buy what I like, can afford, and what keeps me healthy and *sane*.

As only a moment in my life:
Saturday, 26th July, 2014 from my desk, in Kaya Köyü, near Fethiye, Mugla, Turkey, where I as a Dutch resident live and enjoy a lot,
But: with the firm intention to relocate to the best place for me on the planet: my beloved hometown AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands. A city with SOUL, with a heart, structure, and where I was born.
