Sunday post , ” Ma`loula ” is the only place which still speak “Jesus” language in the world

Ma’loula or Maaloula (Aramaic: ܡܥܠܘܠܐ‎, Arabic: معلولا‎), is a village in the Rif Dimashq Governorate in Syria. The town is located 56 km to the northeast of Damascus, and built into the rugged mountainside, at an altitude of more than 1500 meters. It is known as the last surviving place where Western Aramaic (Aramaic of Jesus) is still spoken.

With two other nearby towns Bakh’a (Arabic: بخعة‎) and Jubba’din (Arabic: جبّعدين‎‎), it is the only place where a dialect of the Western branch of the Aramaic language is still spoken. Scholars have determined that the Aramaic of Jesus belonged to this particular branch as well, however, as many media coverage has erroneously stated, it isn’t the exact dialect Jesus of Nazareth spoke during the first century. Ma’loula represents, therefore, an important source for anthropological linguistic studies regarding first century Aramaic, hence, Jesus’ own Aramaic dialect. The distance from other major cities and its isolating  geological features only aided the longevity of this linguistic oasis for over one and a half thousand years. However, modern roads and transportation, as well as accessibility to Arabic-language television and print media – and for some time until recently, also state policy – have eroded that linguistic heritage .

You may know Aramaic as the language of Jesus, but did you know that Aramaic is actually a 3,000 year old language that evolved in the Middle East alongside .
Aramaic has been the lingua franca of the Assyrian and Babylonian empires, has been the language not only of books of the Old Testament/Tanakh and the New Testament, but Buddhist epistles and even written out in Chinese characters! We can even thank Aramaic language  for    the Hebrew alphabet, which was originally written in Phoenician characters, but adopted the Aramaic writing system during the Babylonian exile. There are even numerous modern dialects of Aramaic still spoken today in the only place in Ma`loula .

WWJW: What would Jesus write? Herodian script! now common knowledge that Jesus spoke Aramaic, specifically 1st Century
Aramaic appeared in the 10th century BCE and by the 5th century, it had become the major language in the Near East, spoken and written from Egypt to India. spoken in a late dialect which would survive until approximately the end of the 2nd century CE. However, the language that was spoken by most of the population was a dialect of Aramaic known as Western Aramaic.

Pilgrims to Palestine  can become better acquainted with this ancient language by visiting masses celebrated by the the Syriac Orthodox Church, the Syrian Catholic Church and the Maronites.

Human Relations as an Aspect of Leadership

 

The given piece of information throws light on various important aspects of communication in an organization. It also brings out how communication makes a difference in maintaining good human relations.

True Communication

Relationships are an integral part of human lives. Words are only superficial aspects as far as communication is concerned. If the communication is devoid of human interactions, words can never convey the exact meaning to the other person. Words are actually tools for generating an emotional experience inside us. Leaders often tend to neglect this human nature altogether. While reaching out to other people, they only focus on disseminating material information and tend to overlook human relationships.

Leadership talk is a tool used by leaders for connecting with the emotions of other. Before delivering the talk, leaders should properly assess two prime factors related with it. These are information and human relations communication. This pre-assessment will empower the leaders with mining relationships and generating good results.

An important aspect in this regard is to motivate and not order others in getting a job done by transferring your motivation over them with a proper talk for imparting information, communicating sensibly and working towards a common experience. Communicating experiences is infact the most effective method of promoting relationships and motivation.

Human Relations in an Organization

Human relations communication is cited amongst the most perplexing and difficult problems of modern organizations as establishing effective communication channels, though essential, are not usually easy. These channels are needed by managers for transmitting policies and orders, unifying groups and building co-operation., leading to employee involvement and good teamwork, conflict management and problem solving.

Communication is the most important tool used for motivating and improving the morale of an organization’s workforce. It helps in maintaining effective human relations and encourages suggestions, ideas and their implementation as and when applicable which leads to increased production and reduced costs on account of the fact that everyone is in sync with the organizational goals.

Communication is an essential ingredient of the functioning of any organization’s management. The success probabilities of any plans conceived at the management level depend upon how effectively the information, thoughts, ideas and opinions are shared between various levels of the organization.

If the organizational leaders are able to avoid confusion and misunderstandings, harmony will be established between the different departments and concerned people. Hence, the communication between the seniors and their subordinates should be clear, concise, and purposeful and connect generating.

Relationship Types

Human relationships occur at several levels between peers, supervisors and subordinates of an organization leading to the formation of formal as well as informal workgroups. The success of the organization is directly related to the success of these groups and its individuals which requires the supervisors and managers to be concerned for their workgroups by providing proper environment and perks. Good relationships are therefore required between the various workgroups and their individuals.

Establishing good quality human relations is a rather difficult task but there is no denying to the fact that success only comes when these relationships exist healthily within the organization with each individual prepared to help each other and face the challenges for their as well as the organizational welfare.

Africa, which covers an

area of millions of square kilometers  and includes the desert in Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Morocco,Mauritania, Chad, Niger and Mali.
As everyone knows the desert is famous as one of the hardest and most difficult areas of life on Earth, and therefore find that the population of no more than a few thousand living a precarious life depends on movement for water and grass  for their herds of cattle which are the main wealth . When we talk about Sahara  ,   of course, do not include those deserts  that spread into the rest of the continents   around the world.

But despite the harshness of life in these deserts, but it has a special magic    and  specially in  spring seasons  as the flowers  spread along hundreds of kilometers sometimes with a very beautiful scenery .

 

 

 

Sunday post :In order to search for the truth

The truth is the most important produced by human civilizations since the dawn of history, and was seeking to establish the principles of  seeking truth in the communities as the ultimate goal of mankind, no  meaning for  our    existence without  knowing  the truth, and  all  religions  asked the followers   to search for the truth (the truth of creation and configuration , the fact of  the relationship  between   man and  God, and the fact of  GOOD  and EVIL )
The absolute truth is the presence of   GOD     Find the creatures, which laid down the principles of justice and truth  in all aspects of our existence.

If you look what is happening in the world today, we find that  researcher for the truth facing many difficulties, harassment, why?  Because our societies today is no longer interested to know the truth  only if they achieve self-interest, hence the truth has become relative  and depends on each person to see their importance in achieving the interest.
These new Machiavellis  as I like to call them, have knowledge of the truth based on the principle (  goals justifies the means) and they are ready to follow any means to achieve their goals do not care if it is at the expense of knowledge and justice. This principle continues to spread in our communities  these days, regrettably  while  researchers  for  the truth a few  marginalized pariah though they were causing a threat to Machiavellis , but they are and will continue to uncover the means of these  suspicious in coloring the truth in line with their goals and for the facts and establish the principle of interest, first and foremost.

How many of us who is willing to sacrifice money or dignity, liberty, or even self for the sake of telling the truth?? Question may be difficult to answer with the spread of material values and became unruly  material interests are driving our societies, is no longer the spiritualvalues that influence human noble called for in the march of society.
Here is the real   danger, and without the firm belief that we have ,  that  right will win in the end  , and that God is right and this is  the absolute truth,we would say that humanity inevitably going into the unknown .

How to be a provision in facing the problems ??

As long as there is continuity in the life course ,   there certainly will be  continue   in facing of  problems and that never-ending but  by the end of life it self   , a fact that I do not think anyone would argue about it.
Difficulties or problems, , you may  see  every day and rarely a day goes by without facing what you hate or do not like confrontation  and seek to avoid, whether this was  at work, at home, in the street or even in the   neighborhood  .

As long as we recognize the existence of these problems  in our lives has become necessary for us to know how we will face  without fall in  taboos and prohibitions that do not want to put ourselves  in it.
1-  You should try as much as possible for  not to sink in to the  endings of these problems, which can lead to serious consequences to be difficult to resolve later. In other words, to deal  with them simply and without complication and  not to give  it more  than it  actually deserves,In this case we can deal with it without additional problems  .

2-  Dealing with each problem separately and not to confuse  things, because each case has a solution different from the other and in this case, keep things under control and to the extent possible to solve.
3-  Do not rush to judgment and to take action, and wait to study the situation, no obligation patience to the maximum extent possible,so as not to leave room for interventions if it is within the minimum so as not to complicate the problem and that  make  it  difficult to find the right solution .
4-  Try to collect those involved in the problem together in a  quiet   and comfortable  place    that everyone feels relaxed and comfortable which are required valuable such cases, which will facilitate discussion and conversation between them, and certainly help in finding appropriate solutions .
5-  If the problem involved in two, three or more try at first to talk  with each one separately and understand his point of view and visionof the solution can be accepted. And then you have a range of ideaswill help you when negotiating to find the best solution.
6- The confrontation, after they have all the previous steps,every  thing now became   clear  you have   a complete  idea  about  the problem and see the other side of the solution that acceptable, ie, you have the data required to solve the problem, collect  out  the   adversaries  of the problem together and  let them into dialogue to discuss aspects of the problem and you be the observer and the rule if necessary but  do  not interfere, unless  you feel that things will escape from your hand .
7- The peace, and no matter how long conversation and debate between adversaries must be to reach a solution that  satisfies all parties, and here comes your turn decisive in persuading  everyone a to turn the page on the dispute and reconciliation  together.
That the role that you’ve done for the benefit of all will remain in place, but it will spread to other Amkth will talk about the people and this will be the greatest prize may acquire at any time.

How To Inspire Your Team – 5 Reasons To Start With Yourself

Inspiration is powerful stuff. Inspired people are fully energised and clearly focused, which means they are strongly motivated and engaged in the action they take. These are prized qualities in the workplace – a manager’s dream! – yet inspired colleagues are a rarity.

Too many managers and leaders look for ways to inspire their people while remaining locked into uninspired behaviourthemselves. This is doomed to failure! Instead, here are the 5 principles behind success.

1. Being inspired is a prerequisite for inspiring those around you

It’s a matter of congruence – walking the talk. If someone deliberately sets out to inspire you and they are not themselvesinspired, the falsehood is obvious. Would you be inspired by someone who is not inspired themselves? So, as Gandhi put it, “Be the change you want to see”.

2. The resulting insights help you to inspire others

By becoming more aware of how you are inspired, you will gain insights into how other people become inspired. This is not a simplistic assumption that whatever inspires you will inspire everybody else but a deeper understanding of the mechanism of inspiration and how techniques that work for you can be adapted to work with others.

For example, a clear sense of purpose is an inspiring experience. However the particular purpose that works for you may not be the same purpose that inspires your colleague. But what is true is that a sense of purpose, whatever the difference in detail, is important for both of you.

3. Inspiration is contagious!

This is perhaps the most obvious reason – the low-hanging fruit – why you need to be inspired first. If you did nothing else there would still be some positive impact on those around you. People love to be with inspired individuals because some of it automatically rubs off.

4. Inspiring your team is an act of leadership

Inspiring others is a key leadership skill. You are the leader of your team and, whether you choose it or not, each member looks to you as a role model. To some degree your behaviour will be copied – you need to be out in front.

5. Inspiration will sustain you in your role in leading the team

Consistently inspiring a team takes energy, focus, creativity and resilience. You will have these qualities in far greaterabundance when you are inspired. Without inspiration, your efforts are likely to exhaust you as well as being ineffective.
