After reading the Islamic Thinking article, it hit me on using the word 'I' as it is slowly making me aware of one owns selfishness and how confusion overtakes us. There was a hadis I read not so long ago regarding confusion. It has something to do with one's faith. Our faith and knowledge depends on how low it is that sets the confusion.

Faith. Love. Hope
Observing hard work
Recognizing real sincerity
Ending in success story
Relating to reality
Connecting with emotions
Of pity, empathy and sympathy
Everything makes one’s eyes teary
Being human, one’s heart turns jelly
Amazing Grace! Such wonderful feelings
Of sadness, sorrows, happiness and joys.
Looking forward to a much stronger faith,
Much more love and a much greater hope.

This is exactly what I had felt in 2010/1431 so far. Hope to be more content in this new Hijrah year InshaAllah. Wishing everyone a blessed blissful Hijrah year ahead. May we all be better muslims and may our good deeds be accepted and our sins forgiven. May Allah continuously bless us with many good things ahead both in this world and the hear after. Amin! Have a safe lovely day ahead all. Assalam =)

The Paradox Of Our Time by George Carlin
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life, we've added years to life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; big men and small character; steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say "I Love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment, for some day, that person will not be there again. Give time to Love, give time to speak, give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
Especially on this holy month of Ramadhan. The sudden pangs of missing u Pa. Al-Fatihah
