Last night, I was thinking deep while walking in the heavy rain; our actions express our decisions throughout our life. And in nearly all of our life, willing decides nothing; it is useless. We cannot wake up or fall asleep when we want, remember or forget our dreams when we want, summon or banish our thoughts, by deciding to do so.
When we greet someone on the street we just act like silly in disdain, and there is no actor standing behind what we do. Our acts are endpoints in long sequences of unconscious responses by us and sometimes others.
They arise from a structure of our habits and skills that is almost infinitely complicated. Most of our life enacted without conscious awareness. Nor can it be made conscious. No degree of self-awareness can make us self-transparent. Sometimes it takes falling apart to see exactly how or what loosened the mortar. Sometimes we find we are responsible for the how & the what or even how.
As unpleasant as it is when it happens to us, one cannot help but appreciate these times for what you learn serves as a beacon. Of course, this is only half the battle lost or won. Which means you're already half way there .....THINK !! ---- #arunbatish#london#londonbridge#londonfashion#london 🇬🇧 #londoneye#londonbylondoners#londonrestaurants#londoncityworld
Got given a lovely little 3D printer today by another artist and now i can complete my clay head sculpture that contains my cancer in the paint. It depicts rhe moment i was told the cancer i had was stage 3 and the type with the highest possible risk that it would come back. Now incan print all my thoughts that went flying through my head but they will come flying out of the top of my headq in a rainbow colour explosion

The young girl in the video is asking about the condition of her father. This happened near idlib in Syria today yet barely a word has been heard on international media. These children's father, grandmother and other family members are said to have been killed in airstrikes that targeted a popular market place in Idlib province.

This name and this act of bravery deserve just as much attention as those of the criminals that killed innocent civilians. Not only were the two who were killed innocent civilians but they were there to help criminals and help rehabilitate criminals, they weren't just any normal people but they were there to help them.
It's sad that people can be so uneducated and so mislead to believe that taking the life of any innocent civillian like this would be in any way permissible. May Allah guide these people, and May Allah reward those who who helped save many more lives from being taken, Ameen.
live their lives.
These fellas are amazing. The terrorist has already killed 2 people, injured others and they chase him down with a whale tusk and a fire extinguisher. He’s wearing a suicide vest which they don’t know is fake.
Incredible. True heroes. #londonbridge
Today has seen another attack in London, more specifically London Bridge.
The suspect was wearing what looked like a suicide vest, thankfully it was later found that it was a hoax; meaning that he suspect made it too look as real as possible but could not get the correct materials to create an explosion.
Police responded to a stabbing, when they arrived they found 7 members of the public pinning the suspect, when police arrived the men dispersed and the suspect was shot and killed by police. In the attack several other members of the public were stabbed.
25-year-old Jack Merritt was killed in the London Bridge terror attack last week while attending a prisoner rehabilitation event.
Jack was a coordinator for the Learning Together prison rehabilitation and education programme, where he "opened so many doors for those that society turned their backs on", as his girlfriend Leanne O'Brien described.
In the aftermath of the attack, prime minister Boris Johnson was accused of politicising the event, blaming the Labour party and promising to enforce the harsher draconian sentences that Jack actively campaigned against.
In a powerful piece published in the Guardian, Jack's father defended his son's hopeful and humane worldview. Follow the link in bio to read his full piece.
