How can we find a balance between our actions , and the tremendous progress we have made ??

How can we maintain the required balances in our practices and dealings with the  serious issues facing the world .

Are we aware of our practices and our dealings with our intelligence to suit the high degree of awareness that we got ?. In fact, unfortunately, there is no comparison between the development and the progress we have made and still, through thousands of years of human existence on this earth , and between practices shameful and disgraceful, and when looking for a compelling reason for we find only  an empty justifications .

   The world in which we live has become a stranger to his people , who do not understand how to turn balances and equations to be   understood, we are human being who have built civilizations, we constructed edifices of science and knowledge proven to us that we are the smartest creatures  on earth  and the most aware of what is going on around us, and this fact is  obvious to every one. 
We should enjoy our intelligence and awareness and knowledge accumulated over the centuries, that  our dealings and our actions.be commensurate with our heritage of accumulated civilization, but, unfortunately, what we are seeing does not indicate that, but on the contrary, many of our practices calls for astonishment and bewilderment that we have all this intelligence and awareness and knowledge and then be dealt this way sometimes shameful.

   Why do we behave stupidly and the indifference in dealing with a lot of contemporary issues while supposed , we have reached the highest degree of intelligence and awareness and knowledge, if we look at a lot of our actions both individually or collectively, we find that we do not respect this advanced level of awareness that we got , and act sometimes stupidly and narrow-mindedness is unparalleled as if we are not fully aware of that fact  .

    What could be said of the overlook most of us, and especially the decision-makers in the world و about what is happening to our planet from destruction systematically both in increasing the proportion of carbon dioxide, which causes global warming and the widening hole of the ozone layer, or continue to deforestation and increase the proportion of desertification on the planet, what we did to stop all of this? Unfortunately, nothing but the  warning of  the United Nations  without any response .

    We also believe that , what is required is to use the wisdom and knowledge that we have collected through the ages for the benefit of  people of our species and increase our production of the growing needs of more than 7000 million people living on this planet instead of squandering our money and our resources on the arms race , wars  and  fighting  each other.
Must have a sufficient awareness to provide justice for human beings without discrimination . The society reached this advanced level of awareness and sophistication they may not cast the surplus of their food in the garbage , while millions  of people are  starving in different parts of the world .

   If we know we have arrived at an advanced degree of awareness and we really should  hire it in solving the world’s problems and try to prevent wars and resolve the internal problems of other countries through dialogue and understanding.

   Is it permissible to leave nations to  fight each other In order to get lots of water or food   and do not have a role in preventing it, even if we were obliged to allocate a small percentage of our income to help these phenomenal on .

Is this possible?? Something of the wisdom and the sense of teamwork and renounce selfishness be possible to see,
A world in which every  human beings have  freedom and justice.
A world  where  we don`t  have  hundreds of millions of hungry people, while others live in obscene luxury and richness.
World depends dialogue style to solve problems.
A world where  scientists devote  the heritage of our scientific knowledge to the service of poeple in our species and increase our credit civilization.
Is this possible?? We wish  so … .

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.
