Merit of Scholar
Imam al-`Aaskari (AS), in his description of evil scholars, said, ‘They cause more harm to the weak ones from among our shi`aa than the army of Yazid did to Husayn b. Ali (AS) and his companions, for they snatched away (grab, seize, steal) their lives and their property, whereas these evil scholars … enter doubt and obscurity (ambiguity) into the weak ones from among our shi`aa and lead them astray (wandering).’ 

People Are of Two Types: The Learned and the Seeker of Knowledge
“The people are in two groups: knowledgeable ones and those acquiring knowledge. The rest of the people are like flies subject to the wind and such people will be thrown into the Fire.” Imam Jafar Sadiq (AS).

“The most learned of men is the one who gathers knowledge from others on his own; the most worthy of men is the most knowing and the meanest is the most ignorant.” 

Cost of Insult
Imam al-Kazim (AS) said, 'Nothing is more hurtful to Iblis [Shatan] and his army than brothers in faith visiting each other for the sake of Allah.’ 'Whenever two people insult each other, the more superior of the two sinks to the level of the more inferior one.’ When he saw two people insulting each other, said, 'The initiator is the more unjust and bears his own sin as well as the sin of his opponent as long as the latter does not retort (come back with).’

Zainabic Act
Those who died committed a Husaynic act.
Those who remain must perform a Zainabic act.
Otherwise, they are Yazids. "Dr Ali Shariati"

Potential of Freedom and Limitation of Submission

'Only you can free yourself from yourself.'

Sometimes, extra security and protection, offered from parents and society, limits you to achieve the highest possibility of the creation purpose of the human. In return we have to accept chaining, fastening, binding, shackle, lock up, attach, string; fear and greed; limits our desire to achieve our highest possibility; the purpose of life; human nature. Unrest, discomfort, dissatisfaction, sadness, unhappiness; is rooted with this coditioning.

Animals and birds push out their babies after necessary specified time. Some babies even die in this push.

Freedom is absolute; it has only two extremes. It has no %age adjustment. It is there or it is not.

There is difference between animals and human.

We chain animal physically but on mind level; we cannot chain them; bird will always fly, snake will always sting. After a specified interval, they kick out their babies, in this prospect some babies even die.

This is human; it accepts conditioning; fear and greed are conditioning tools for human. Human has capacity to do much more with freedom as compared to what he can perform with conditioning. All negativity (jealousy, comparison, status, fame) in human society is rooted with this conditioning. Understanding, knowledge, wisdom; can help the human to get rid of this conditioning. . Misconception, fake desires, illusion; that money is the only solution. Reality is that we can earn more money without surrendering our freedom. 

For bird flying is the highest possibility (the desire of bird nature).

Spending money and resources where it is needed; is logical and stretching the need and over spending is result of conditioning.
100% not in Present, 100% not in past, never 100%, incomplete life forever. Keeping many glasses of water from past. Sticking with past experiences is sign of death. In the same game; basket ball, cricket, soccer; no two balls are same, no two strikes are same. First experience can never be repeated. Imperfections, weaknesses, conflicts; are proof that we are not robots (plastic). Thought process needs to be controlled. If someone is angry or posing mood; it’s democratic right they are using. You must not give them control, you handle the situation. Be open to accept everyone with every experience. Every moment is new life. Let’s enjoy present moment life.
We need to Overcome the FEAR of Pain / painful experiences; and Desire for Pleasurable Experiences with wrong perceptions. Every being has some good and bad characteristics; so you can get good and bad experiences accordingly from one and same person. Nice word’s impact, mango taste, enjoying present moment; never change. It is affiliated with any situation.
People are spending money in restaurants; not enjoying the present food, photoing and texting; Keep yourself fresh from inside and you will enjoy each and every moment. Eagles / flies fighting and living together. Animals do the same. There is heavy traffic and other situations; be sad and crazy; this is proof of your stupidity or enjoy the live amusements; all is there for accidents but people are moving with no fear and concern in mind.
Break up, abandoned relationship, separation, divorce, action against our will, no fulfilment of burning desire, walk away of any best friend, death; it results in anger, hate, frustration; a focused, concentrated energy inside; which one cannot achieve in any other situation in routine life. The intensity and measurement of this focused energy depends upon the severity of the situation. For example, attack on babies of a mom. Now she will protect with full force. 
The challenge is to control and channelise this focused energy for constructive use skillfully. Great memorials in history are proof of this concept.
There are two types of energy; routine, passion energy; it is limited; it has chance of distraction. The other type is focused energy; it is unlimited; it has no chance of distraction. The great possibility is to mix this focused energy with passion and use its creativity. (Start of Absolute Freedom Journey)
