Is MotiVation DesTiny compatible?

If the destiny exists, then why bother trying? If the firm that will hire me, and all money I will earn in life, were already predetermined and set, then why should I bother working harder? Does belief in destiny ruin motivation?

Human race was given many senses and strengths, including the willpower, which makes us responsible for our actions. Our will is limited, yet quite real and working. There are limited things we can do, from good to evil. Therefore the responsibility.

Time is subjective, it’s a comparison of events. There’s no objective evidence time even exists according to Einstein’s theory of relativity.

The fact that He knows everything already, since He created time and space anyway, kinda gives me support in difficult times. The fact that I’m responsible for motivation, since I was given willpower, kinda makes me keep moving.

Zimbra is working

Zimbra works beutifully with Yahoo Mail. Free. It has lots of features; calendar, tasks, address book, tasks, documents..

Also Zimbra Desktop;

  • uses IMAP access to the Gmail
  • can access corporate email
  • can access any POP/IMAP email accounts

The interface is nice, there are several themes to choose from. Overall, I’m completely satisfied with this software. And I apologize once more for calling Zimbra and Yahoo greedy.

Yahoo and Zimbra – good people

July 25, 2008

I haven’t been able to access Yahoo mail properly for months. It’s because of the modem connection. GPRS works fine, but dialup is too slow. So, I wanted my to read Yahoo mail from POP3. No avail. Gotta pay $30 for Mail Plus 😦

Then comes Zimbra, and I have my hopes up… The features list says you need Yahoo Mail Plus to use it, so I say “What a drag, what a nuisance, what a stupid approach”. Turns out you don’t need Mail Plus. I apologize. Now I’m downloading Zimbra desktop. Gonna share feelings after the test. Only after testing it.

Friendship’s subtle points en path to enlightenment

July 22, 2008

I once wore a Che Guevara T-shirt to a lecture. The lecturer wasn’t pleased at all, she commented slightly on the appearance. Never directly. Dumb as I was, I still managed to understand that the T-shirt was disturbing, so I wore a peaceful neutral one for the next lecture. The lecturer was much higher mentally and could sense beyond my hard and dumb personality.

They call it empathy, culture, peer pressure, whatever… A struggle with own ego a.k.a. known as “path to enlightenment” makes people sensitive. They eat, walk, talk, buy, sell, sleep in a more sensitive way. Unfortunately there’s almost no way for “finer” people to stay around normal people for a long time. Too rude, too open, too fast, too egoistic… Although, of course it’s just normal behaviour.

Thousands angles to one question; why are we here?


Interesting pattern

With no one stressing me, I’m at work 10 hours per day, against 8 required. I worked hard, done something and feel excellent. I’m cursed with pride and freedom, I’ll never become a human.

Therefore, you readers can totally believe me when I blog about all this crazy stuff. I crazily believe in all this for real (it turns out).

Jai Hind!


Yimpash needs competition

With fall of USD from 20 to 14 thousand manats, the natural reaction of Yimpash was to cut prices. The natural reaction of less responsive sellers was to keep old prices…

Yimpash was quite popular even before the promotion. Now it’s just crowded 🙂 I’m sure the management keeps wondering when someone will realize that one big supermarket is just not enough for Ashgabat. The demand is too high. Yimpash is coping well, but we all know it will get lazy and lose the edge if there’s no competition.

I’ve seen many opportunities to enter a market, but this is a golden one. You can thank me later, just start construction now!

Where are you?

As we entered the village I heard the call. There was no choice, we would stay on the road for hours, and I would miss it; so I told other engineers I had an acquaintance in this village and went to the place. I miss the call too frequently, I just couldn’t miss it this time again.

My T-shirt and jeans didn’t fit. People were either quite old or young boys, in modest clothes. Where are you? My hope, my brother, my future, my only light, my reason for existence, my motivation, my support… The grandson of Gonubek, I expected to see you here; it is the right place for you! Were you drinking, chasing girls, sleeping or earning money when they called you? For two centuries they have lured you out, only small kids and old men here. What have they given to you, which is sweeter than this call? They gave you despair, poverty, violence… Where are you? Come back! Come back for science, technology, motivation, humanity, salvation and bright future.


Dostoyevsky, Shigalev and Gokdepe

July 11, 2008

Dostoyevsky is a nationalist, therefore when Russians blew up the Gokdepe castle in 1881 he was quite happy, which he expressed in his diary. He was probably too much disappointed by the defeat of Russians in 1979 at the same Gokdepe castle. Anyway, after finding this point in his diary, I didn’t read Dostoyevsky for about 8 years.

However, now wiser and older I can see why Dostoyevsky was so nationalistic. He writes in “Demons” for example, that atheism and communism were spread within Russia by foreign nations in 19th century; ergo the hatred.

One character of “Demons” – Shigalev, prepares a model for future socialist Russia. One tenth of society governs everyone else. Hundreds of millions are to be turned into a herd of “strange animals”, who will totally give up their education, future and will, etc. etc. etc… A complete guide for totalitarian system of Soviet Union explained in “Demons” by Dostoyevsky.

Another character, Petr Stepanovich Verhovensky shows all personality traits of 1917 revolution leaders. Absolutely no morale, no rules and no god; worse than criminals. Dostoyevsky also correctly predicted the final destiny of communist ideas, he made an analogy of ideas with “Demons” in one part in Bible (Lucas, VIII, 32-36.), when Jesus (a.s.) exorts demons out of an obsessed man. Demons ask Jesus (a.s.) to let them possess a herd of swines, and when allowed they make the herd jump off the cliff, into the lake and sink. Which eventually happened in 1991.

White vs. black, belief vs. atheism, integrity vs. corruption, white knights vs. dark knights… Sometimes time and space continuum coincide and one can clearly see the line that separates one side from the opposite. I lived in Soviet Union as a kid, and I live in Turkmenistan now, atheism is not the lighter side. That demon can talk of rights, humanity, bright future; but all one gets is a downward stairway, leading to levels lower than animals, lower than plants, lower than rocks, lower than vacuum, lower than nothing…
