Funny Works: Mullah Nasruddin

Funny Works: Mullah Nasruddin:

"A certain man asked Mullah Nasruddin,

- What is the meaning of fate, Mullah Nasruddin ?

- Assumptions, Mullah Nasruddin replied.

- In what way? the man asked again.

Mullah Nasruddin looked at him and said,

- You assume things are going to go well, and they don't - that you call bad luck. You assume things are going to go badly and they don't - that you call good luck. You assume that certain things are going to happen or not happen - and you so lack intuition that you don't know what is going to happen. You assume that the future is unknown. When you are caught out - you call that Fate."

Har kas ke bedanad va bedanad ke bedanad

har kas ke bedanad va bedanad ke bedanad
asb-e kherad  az  gombad-e gardun bejahanad
har kas ke nadanad va bedanad ke nadanad
langan-e kharak-e khish be manzel berasanad
har kas ke nadanad va nadanad ke nadanad
dar jahl-e morrrakab 'abad od-dahr bemanad

(attrib. to  Naser od-Din Tusi (1201-1274))

Who knows, and knows that he knows,
Makes the horse of intelligence jump over the vault of heaven.
Who does not know, yet knows he does not know,
Can nevertheless bring his lame little  donkey to its destination.
Who does not know, and  does not know that he does not know,
Remains mired forever in double ignorance.

Na anchenan, Na anghadr. Be Alive!

Na anchenan ashegh bash ke hich chiz nabini.
Na anghadr bebin ke hargez ashegh nashavi.

It's Persian, and it means:

Don't fall in love so much, such that you become blind.
Don't look around so much, such that you don't ever fall in love.

I write a variety of blogs, tweets, and most of the time I am dealing with extremes. A new gadget, a new phase of the Moon, a new piece of news from Iran.

In all these adventures of thought, you need a certain attitude. A sense of appreciation. That sense needs to be balanced. But like a see-saw, it has to go up and down first.

So the phrase above seems appropriate, not only in love, but in all areas of life. Surf the waves. The rise and the fall. But more importantly, know that still waters run deep. And yes go and stomp on a puddle, and make your splash.

But Be Alive! Grab an idea, tweet it, think more and blog it, and then splash it out to the world.
It's your world. It's my world. It's our world.
