Busana Wanita

1. Terpenting dalam memilih busana muslim adalah sesuai dengan aturan Islam. Busana Muslim bertujuan untuk menutup aurat dan melindungi tubuh pemakainya dari hal-hal yang bisa mencederai. Oleh karena itu, pilihlah busana yang longgar sehingga menyamarkan siluet tubuh. Begitu banyak model pakaian muslim di butik pakaian/fashion shop.

2. Sebaiknya tidak menggunakan baju ketat yang di double dengan baju lengan pendek, ¾, atau tank top. Jika Anda memilih untuk berbusana muslim maka pilihlah kreasi busana lengan panjang.

3. Pilih model dan bahan baju muslimah yang sesuai dengan aktivitas. Jika banyak beraktivitas pilihlah bahan yang menyerap keringat dan tak mudah kusut, yang terdiri dari atasan dan celana panjang. Tentunya banyak tersedia di butik pakaian/fashion shop. Untuk aktivitas yang lebih banyak diam pengguna busana muslim akan bertambah anggun dengan memakai rok.

4. Dalam memilih busana muslimah, pilihlah penutup kepala/jilbab yang tetap menutup leher. Pelajari berbagai kreasi kerudung yang banyak diinformasikan dalam media massa agar tetap mengikuti mode namun tetap mengikuti aturan agama.

Law of Attraction

There is a considerable amount of material on the Internet concerning the strange world of Quantum Theory and the Law of Attraction. Many authors have noted the fact that an "observer" appears to manifest results in the quantum world and, from this, have concluded this proves we can manifest our reality through visualization and "The Law of Attraction".

First, we must understand clearly what is meant by the "observer" in quantum physics ... it is important. It is not me, sitting at my desk, independent of any apparatus. It is the apparatus I select in order to make an observation of a characteristic of a sub-atomic particle, to test a specific characteristic of that particle (frequency, position / momentum, etc). Using this apparatus, I then make my observation. However, quantum particles are so small that the media I use to make my observation (photons, x-rays, etc) interfere with / modify my observation. For example, if I use light waves (or particles), the wavelength is so large that I can determine little or nothing about a particles position. If I use more powerful (and energetic) x-rays, then I can make a determination of location but now know little or nothing with regard to position. This is the essence of the "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle".

If I set up an experiment to detect the particle-like nature of light, I confirm particle-like behaviour. If I set up a double slit experiment to test the wave-like character, I confirm it's wave-like nature. If I set up a Compton scattering experiment, I confirm BOTH wave-like and particle-like nature. The experiment appears to dictate the results. More accurately, however, the experiment confirms the limits of our understanding and/or our inability to visualize the sub-atomic realm as compared to the Newtonian Classic realm in which we live. This was summarized (by physicists working on the problem) in the "Copenhagen Interpretation" - simply that we cannot visualize how Quantum Mechanics works, however, it does work and so we will proceed on this basis. (For more information at a laymen's level check out the Dancing Wu Li Masters).

Furthermore, understand that these are experiments to detect and determine the characteristics of one (or relatively few) sub-atomic particles, NOT the macroscopic realm in which we live our existence (comprised of many billions of atoms and molecules). It is much easier to visualize (set up an experiment) to manifest / actualize a sub-atomic particle than manifest $1 million cash.

Secondly, in our macroscopic world, once we begin visualizing desired outcomes (goals), we are potentially interacting / conflicting with others and their desired outcomes (i.e. why can't I win the "1 million lottery?"). It could be that others are visualizing just as hard for a conflicting / diamtrically opposed outcome (i.e. you are visualizing for the same lottery win).

Finally, through Einstein's famous theory (E=mc2), the amount of energy required to manifest a physical object would be huge.

I think the Quantum world (and Quantum Theory) throws our belief system about reality back in our faces but to clip ideas from Quantum theory to support ideas at the macroscopic level is misleading. Yes, it appears (due to our limited understanding of the Quantum World) that an Observer can cause light to display particle-like, wave-like or both particle-like and wave-like characteristics depending on the design of the experiment. However,this can not be legitimately extended to indicate that I can manifest $1 million simply by visualizing it.

Quantum theory does, indeed, have a considerable amount to say with regard to our perception (and philosophy) of reality but too many authors are using it out of context to promote (hype)

As an aside: A movie I thoroughly enjoyed, which explored the surface strangeness of Quantum Theory at a layman's level is Mindwalk.

Keeping Time

By Marsha Maung

What keeping time really means is...being on time!

You know, there was once a upon a time when my friends or my husband's friends invite us for dinner or a gathering, they would expect us to be late by half-an-hour. They would be totally prepared if we were late and come in with unironed clothes, grouchy kids and soup stains all over our jeans and shirts. But whenever we appeared earlier or ON TIME, they would all start writing down numbers to buy lottery the next day!!

I never really realized how important timing is until a client woke me up. I didn't really piss him off but he subtly reminded me that being on time would bring me more customers and also more referrals. Coincidentally, that was also the time that I was looking through a book about being organized and becoming a more successful home-preneur.

My husband is a fanatic about time - so, my disregard towards timing makes him ill - really, really ill. Sometimes so ill that he would promise to throw the whole idea of going out together out the window.

Then it occurred to me - if it was so important to my husband, imagine what it would be like for my clients. Imagine what it would be like for them to have to wait for me all the time when THEY ARE PAYING ME TO DO WHATEVER THEY HAVE ASSIGNED FOR ME!

Thinking about it and mentally reversing the situation made me really sit up and think. And today, I am no longer as late as I used to be. I can be an occassional much-too-laidback or lackadaisical or procrastinator...whatever you call it.....person but, all in all, timing is now more important to me.

It's very important for us, home business owners, to be timely than for others. If, for example, a sales person from Braun is late for an appointment, you'd just sit back and wait cause they're BRAUN, you know what I mean. They must have about 100 appointments a day. But when a home business owner is late about handing up a project, the client would automatically think one thing - this person is not serious about his/her business. And it's bad to work with someone who's not serious about his/her work. And you know, you'll just lose the business this way - much too easily.

So, take my advice. If there was one thing you have to change. it's your timing.

Everything else, you can change pun intended here. :-)

Garbage In Its Place

By Dave Brummet and Lillian Brummet

There is nothing worse than seeing garbage blowing down the street of your neighborhood, or finding broken shards of glass at the local swimming hole where children play. Wildlife is just as vulnerable to garbage and many have lost their lives after becoming tangled in waste or mistaking garbage for food. It is up to each of us to make an effort to minimize this unsightly, and sometimes hazardous, problem.

Animals, wind and traffic breezes put legs to loose garbage and are able to distribute it great distances from the original source. The first thing that we can do to prevent this is to ensure trashcan and dumpster lids are secure. Metal and plastic trashcans are more preventative than bags - leaving a bag out over night or even for several hours, is an enticing invitation for stray animals to wreak havoc. When taking a load to the dump, be sure that it is securely covered by tightly tying a tarp over the load with some rope or bungee cords.

Carry plastic shopping bags on your walks to clean up litter that you find along the way. Often, people are rewarded for their efforts by the deposits returned from bottles and cans. Those who have noticed your efforts will begin taking up the same habit once they realize the impact it has.

Report any dumping you witness, whether it was done illegally or accidentally - just get the license number and leave the rest to the officials. Also, report any site where garbage has been left by others. These problems can be reported to the local city, highway, public works or conservation office. Ask them to arrange for it to be cleaned up.

By doing these relatively small actions, we prevent contamination and injuries to people or wildlife in the area. When separating recyclable items, we keep a valuable resource out of the landfill. In addition, we maintain a pristine environment for citizens, tourists and wildlife to enjoy. We can all take pride knowing that by keeping garbage in its place, we are making the world just a little better for everyone.

Three Tips for Forgiveness: A Key Factor in Anger Management

By Dr. Tony Fiore

Elizabeth, 32, cried during anger management class as she told how one year ago - her 19-month-old girl was permanently brain-damaged as the result of a medical error at the hospital in which she was delivered.

Elizabeth had a legitimate grievance toward the hospital and medical staff, and felt that she could never forgive them for what she saw as their incompetence. She clearly was not yet ready to forgive. She felt she needed her simmering anger to motivate her to do what she felt she needed to do legally and otherwise to deal with this horrific situation.

Yet, at some point in the future - when she is ready - Elizabeth might decide to find a way to forgive. To be able to do this, she will have to take the step of separating two things in her mind: (1) blaming the hospital for what they did and (2) blaming them for her resulting feelings about the situation.

Reasons to forgive

Elizabeth cannot change what was done to her daughter, but she can change how she lives the rest of her life. If she continues to hold an intense grievance, she is giving what happened in the past the power to determine her present emotional well being. Until she forgives, Elizabeth will be victimized over and over again, trapped in an emotional prison.

Should you forgive?

The answer to this question always comes down to personal choices and decisions. Some people in our anger management classes feel that certain things cannot and shouldn't be forgiven; others feel that ultimately anything can be forgiven.

As an example of what is possible, the staff of the Stanford Forgiveness Project successfully worked with Protestant and Catholic families of Northern Ireland whose children had been killed by each other. Using the techniques taught by the Stanford group, these grieving parents were able to forgive and get on with their lives.

On the other hand, Dr. Abrams-Spring, author of the classic `"After the Affair," cautions that quickly and easily forgiving a cheating partner indicates low self-esteem. In her view, forgiveness must be earned by the offending partner, but given automatically.

Reasons to forgive

Studies have shown that there are measurable benefits to forgiveness:

- Forgiving is good for your health. Studies show that people who forgive report fewer health problems while people who blame others for their troubles have a higher incidence of illness such as cardiovascular disease and cancers.

- Forgiving is good for your peace of mind. Scientific research shows that forgiveness often improves your peace of mind. A 1996 study showed that the more people forgave those who hurt them, the less angry they were.

- Two studies of divorced people show that those who forgave their former spouse were healthier emotionally than those who chose not to forgive. The forgivers had a higher sense of well being and lower anxiety and depression.

Forgiveness tips

It is common for angry people to think, "I want to forgive, and I know I should, but I don't know how." Here are some starting points:

Tip 1: Remember, forgiveness is a process that takes time and patience to complete. You must be ready. Realize that forgiveness is for you - not for anyone else.

Tip 2: Realize that forgiving does not mean you are condoning the actions of the offender or what they did to you. It does mean that you will blame less and find a way to think differently about what happened to you.

Tip 3: Refocus on the positives in your life. A life well lived is the best revenge. People who find a way to see love, beauty and kindness around them are better able to forgive and get past their grievances.
