Life without afterlife and the China Tea Pot Theory

Author: Mohammed Nazari


Some time ago I was talking to a friend of mine who is rather spiritual. When talking about the existence versus no existence of afterlife (heaven and hell), she said there must be an afterlife otherwise what is the purpose of all this. Even to fathom the idea of no afterlife sounded scary and made her whole life meaningless to her.

Then I asked her the following question:
What would happen if tomorrow all peo...

Belief, Powerful and dangerous

Author: Mohammed Nazari

I knew this family doctor who had some different ideas. As long as I knew him he had issues with the college of physicians. Issues from  billing, falsifying medical records, prescribing drugs that he shouldn't have and some sexual charges. However all time he stood strong and was not budging.

He thought of himself as being right and that everyone else was wrong. He never questioned himself, never admitted to any wrong doings and cons...

Born and raised in Iran, I played Soccer as a child. Well "soccer" is the real football, foot - ball, daaaa. I love the game. Should I have been born in Canada I would have been playing the American football definitely.

World cup is the only sport event that I watch, mainly the final games.  Lionel Messe is known to be one of if not the best soccer player. He is a hero.

Watching the finals of 2014 world cup was very interes...

Scientific vs Religious Pyramid

Scientific vs Religious Pyramid

Author: Mohammed Nazari

Scientific advancement is like a pyramid, as we get more advanced, we have less differences.

Imagine different unskilled people, trying to build one exact specific wooden chair.
Unskilled individuals will have a variety of opinions on what type of wood or screws to use, what part to be cut first, and so on. The difference in opinion is simply due to lack of knowledge, eg there are different wood and screws.

Now if you ask diff...

A Personal Journey (Speech)

Author: Mohammed Nazari

Please find the link to the YouTube videos below

Part 1:

                               Part 2:

  •  It is amazing, when you have a big "goal" in mind, most other big "problems" look like small "challenges"       
  • Education in Canada is more practical than in the east which is more theoretical. After all you can find the theory in books or online, without needing to go to school.

Reasons for my failure as an employee:

1. Higher Canadian standards and sensitivity level  

2. My defensive behavior    

  •  Blaming  your behavior or action does not mean blaming you as a person
  • One for all, All for one

3. Inability to be honest with my own feelings  

  • Pride that has no basis, doesn't allow you to be honest.

4.  Canadian are too polite to be honest   

  •  If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything
  • Read between the lines


  •  Knowledge of higher/different Canadian standards and simply following versus questioning them
  •  Longer orientation
  •  Welcoming comments and asking for further explanation versus defending our self
  • Being honest with our feelings and abilities:

o   Acknowledging your weakness is a sign of honesty and makes you stronger.

  • Asking versus commenting:

o   Don't assume, ask question

o   Don't comment, ask question

o   Don't judge, ask question

o   When in doubt, ask question

o   When you think you know, ask questions to clarify

o Comments are not welcome, questions are

ยท         What kind of question?

1. Open ended and unbiased questions

2. Yes-No questions to clarify

When you have a car problem whom you ask for help? your Doctor, mother or mechanic.

Although this question seems silly, we make this mistake all the time, asking a professional question from people outside of that profession and building opinions.

  • Ask questions from the right person(s). The ones with proven success.


You will learn more from the successful people who can show you how to succeed.

Unsuccessful people can show you how not to fail the way they did.

 While the pathways to success are few, there are multiple pathways to fail.

Which one is easier and more effective to learn?

 Uncle Google and my cousin YouTube can help you with any questions.

Starting my own business

  •  In order to have a good society/business, good structure is more important than good people.
  •  The main sources of work/interpersonal problems are: communication and expectations.
  •  Interpersonal skills are not just talking nicely but much more importantly is to follow a structure and    framework, even if it is not the best structure.
  • Having a poor structure is better than having no structure

I would I would recommend that you ask my uncle and cousin, Google and YouTube, about the following:


  • Active listening
  •  Critical thinking
  • Yes-No question
  • Open ended question
  • how to be honest with oneself


After all My success and happiness depends on your success and happiness.

Let us make life better for all of us.
