LESSON OF THE DAY 580
They ask you about the spirit. Say, "The spirit is from the command of my Lord; and you are given but little knowledge." [17: 85]
Hadith of the Day:
Consider well contentment, for it is a treasure without end. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Generosity is not identifying with yourself, and acting as well as possible. [Hasan al Basri]
Guidance of the Day:
Surrender; Master the lessons of your present circumstances. We do not move forward by resisting what is undesirable in our life today. We move forward, we grow, we change by acceptance. Avoidance is not the key; surrender opens the door. Listen to this truth: We are each in our present circumstances for a reason. There is a lesson, a valuable lesson, that must be learned before we can move forward.
Something important is being worked out in us, and in those around us. We may not be able to identify it today, but we can know that it is important. We can know it is good. Overcome not by force, overcome by surrender. The battle is fought, and won, inside ourselves. We must go through it until we learn, until we accept, until we become grateful, until we are set free. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
We can choose to live in the past, or we can choose to finish our old business from the past and open ourselves to the beauty of today.
