Men Are Born To Fight For A Higher Purpose

The hardest thing for a man is to live without a higher purpose. The first step out of the fog today is to understand that there is a war on.



Nothing gives a person inner wholeness and peace like a distinct understanding of where they are going.

Robert Bryne once observed, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

In order to get somewhere, you need to define your end goal. That is essential. And the sooner you define it, the clearer everything else will become. A life without a purpose is a life without a destination.

Finding the right direction in life is an existential problem for all of us.

What do you look forward to in life? Living without is dangerous.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky once said, “The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”

Finding the right direction in life is something you create. You make the decision to act. To try. To do something. No matter how small.
At some point in life, you’re going to have to stop thinking about taking action and act.
Your purpose in life is to find and do the things that make you smile, laugh and forget time. Even if you aren’t sure yet, move into the exploration and experimentation phase of your life and enjoy the journey.

You can’t put time on it. You can’t force yourself to find your “why” tomorrow or next month, or even next year. But by all means, search for clarity.

In the 1940s, Viktor E. Frankl, was held prisoner in Nazi concentration camps. With all the agony and brutality, what kept Frankl from giving up his relentless fight for his life was purpose!

He found meaning in his struggle, and that’s what gave him the power to push forward through unimaginable pain.

A quote by Viktor nicely sums up his philosophy on how people were able to survive the camps, without losing the will to live.

In his book, “Man’s Search for Meaning”, Viktor says “Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.”

Once you have defined your aims and what you want, it is easier to deal with doubts. Easier not to get distracted from what is important, keep your focus, and keep moving.

Only sustained movement in one direction can bring tangible results. You have permission to change your goal, rethink, choose another, by all means.
It’s hard to maintain any momentum if your direction lacks definition.

In order to reach big goals, you need time, during which you must continue moving in your chosen direction, not veering off course.

Defining your direction as early as possible is the most important decision in sports. But, curiously enough, this is also the most important decision in life in general, but much fewer people realize it.
Living “on purpose” means you live intentionally.

Napoleon Hill once said “There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.

In order to get what you want, you have to choose one direction and move towards it, constantly improving over a prolonged period of time.

Maximum speed and output requires a precise framework.
People who have made genuine changes in their lives and managed to attain difficult goals are not stronger, more intelligent or fearless than you. The only difference is the decision to act in the direction of their dreams.

A strong sense of purpose fuels your motivation.

Successful people have a definite sense of direction. They have a clear understanding of what success means to them.

Everything they do is consistent with their goals. They look forward and decide where they want to be. Their day to day actions helps them move closer to their vision.

Shaytan (Satan) – The Enemy To Mankind, So Take Him As An Enemy

The shaytan is our enemy, so we should take him as an enemy.


An example of those who deny their lord:
Their works are as ashes in a violent wind on a day of tempest
They possess not anything of what they earn.
That is the extreme error.
Hast thou not considered that God created the heavens and the earth aright?
If he wills he will remove you and bring a new creation.
And that is not difficult for God.
And they will emerge before their lord all together.
And those who were despised will say to those who were proud:
We were your followers:
Can you avail us something against the punishment of God?
They will say: Had God guided us we would have guided you.
It is the same to us whether we be distressed or patient
We have no place of refuge.
And the shayṭān will say when the matter has been concluded:
God promised you the promise of truth.
And I promised you
But I failed you.
And I had a warrant against you only to call you
But you responded to me
So blame not me
But blame yourselves.
I will not answer your cry
And you will not answer mine.
I deny your ascribing to me a partnership before.
The wrongdoers: for them is a painful punishment. (14:18-22)

And we have created you.
Then have we fashioned you. Then said we to the angels: Submit to Ādam.
And they submitted save Iblīs.
He was not of those who submit.
He said: What hinders thee that thou dost not submit when I command thee?
Said he: I am better than he
Thou createdst me of fire and thou createdst him of clay.
He said: Get thee down therefrom
It is not for thee to be proud therein:
Go thou forth
Thou art of those brought low.
Said he: Grant thou me respite until the day they are raised up.
He said: Thou art of those granted respite.
Said he: Because thou hast sent me astray I will lie in wait for them on thy straight path
Then will I come at them from before them
And from behind them
And from their right hand
And from their left hand.
And thou wilt not find most of them grateful.
He said: Go thou forth therefrom condemned, banished.
Whoso follows thee from among them, I will fill Hell with you all together. (7:11-18)

O mankind: eat of what is in the earth lawful and good
And follow not the footsteps of the shayṭān.
He is an open enemy to you.
He but enjoins upon you evil and sexual immorality
And that you ascribe to God what you know not.
And when it is said to them: Follow what God has sent down
They say: Nay: we follow that wherein we found our fathers.
Even though their fathers did not reason and were not rightly guided?
And the example of those who are indifferent to warning is like the example of one who yells to what hears not
Save a call and a shout:
They do not reason. (2:168-171)

The shayṭān promises you poverty and enjoins upon you sexual immorality.
But God promises you forgiveness and bounty from him.
And God encompasses, knows. (2:268)

He promises them
And arouses desires in them
And the shayṭān promises them only deception. (4:120)

And if there provoke thee a provocation to evil from the shayṭān:
Seek thou protection in God.
He is hearing, knowing.
Those who are in prudent fear, when a visitation from the shayṭān touches them they take heed
And then do they see.
When their brethren assist them in error
Then do they not cease.

And when the shayṭān makes their deeds fair to them and says:
None among men can defeat you this day when I am at your side
Then when the companies come within sight of one another he turns on his heels and says:
I am innocent of you
I see what you see not
I fear God.
And God is severe in retribution. (8:48)

The shayṭān is an enemy to you
So take him as an enemy.
He but calls his party that they might be among the companions of the inferno. (35:6)

AL KAFIRUN – How “Islam’s” INFIDELS Contradict The Qur’an

Much of Traditionalist Islam’s presentation is against “the infidels” (Arabic: al kafirun). But an objective look in the Qur’an at how it uses the term precludes the Traditionalist’s value for it.

In this talk I expose how al kafirun does not – and cannot – mean in the Qur’an what the Traditionalist wants it to me: i.e. someone who does not accept his religion.


And when we said to the angels: Submit to Ādam
Then they submitted save Iblīs.
He refused and was proud
And was of those who spurn guidance while claiming virtue. (2:34)

And they ask thee to hasten the punishment
When were it not a named term the punishment would have come to them.
And it will come upon them unexpectedly when they perceive not.
They ask thee to hasten the punishment
But Hell will encompass those who spurn guidance while claiming virtue
The day the punishment covers them from above them and from beneath their feet.
And he will say: Taste what you did!
O my servants who heed warning: my earth is spacious
So me:
Serve me.
Every soul will taste death.
Then to us will you be returned.
And those who heed warning and do deeds of righteousness
We will settle them in the high places of the garden beneath which rivers flow
They abiding eternally therein.
Excellent is the reward of those who act
Those who are patient
And in their lord place their trust.
And how many a creature there is that bears not its provision!
God provides for it and for you.
And he is the Hearing, the Knowing.
And if thou ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth and made serviceable the sun and the moon?
They will say: God.
So how are they deluded?
God expands provision for whom he wills of his servants
And he straitens for him.
God knows all things.
And if thou ask them: Who causes water to come down from the sky and therewith gives life to the earth after its death?
They will say: God.
Say thou: Praise belongs to God.
The truth is: most of them do not reason.
And the life of this world is only play and games
And the abode of the hereafter
That is Life
Did they but know.
Then when they embark on a ship they call to God sincere to him in doctrine.
And when he delivers them to the land
Then they ascribe a partnership
That they might deny what we gave them
And that they might take their enjoyment.
But they will come to know.
Have they not considered that we made a sanctuary secure while men were swept away round about them?
Do they then believe in vanity and deny the grace of God?
And who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about God
Or repudiates the truth when it comes to him?
Is then there not in Hell a home for those who spurn guidance while claiming virtue?
And those who strive for us:
We guide them to our paths.
And God is with the doers of good. (29:53-69)

The “Taqiyya” Meme: No Support For Taqiyya In The Qur’an

Some strains of Christianity and the so-called Far Right bandy about the accusation of “taqiyya” against anyone referencing Islam. In this talk I point out that there is no support for the concept of taqiyya in the Qur’an, no matter what adherents of “Islam” claim or do.


Let not the believers take as allies those who spurn guidance while claiming virtue rather than believers
(And whoso does that is not of God in anything)
Save that you be in prudent fear among them of a threat.
And God warns you of himself.
And to God is the journey’s end. (3:28)

Whoso denies God after his faith
Save he who is compelled thereto but whose heart finds rest in faith.
But whoso expands his breast to denial:
Upon them is wrath from God
And they have a tremendous punishment (16:106)

Cf. Kol NidreAll vows, and prohibitions, and oaths, and consecrations, and konams and konasi and any synonymous terms, that we may vow, or swear, or consecrate, or prohibit upon ourselves, •from the previous Day of Atonement until this Day of Atonement and …• ♦from this Day of Atonement until the [next] Day of Atonement that will come for our benefit.♦ Regarding all of them, we repudiate them. All of them are undone, abandoned, cancelled, null and void, not in force, and not in effect. Our vows are no longer vows, and our prohibitions are no longer prohibitions, and our oaths are no longer oaths.

To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

Ist Corinthians 9:22
