LESSON OF THE DAY 614
As for those who believed and did good works, there are the gardens of Paradise for them as a welcome, where they will abide, wishing no change in them. [18: 107,108]
Hadith of the Day:
The best (person) is the one who pays the rights of others generously. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
It is through lawful sustenance that limbs incline to adoring their Lord, likewise it is through unlawful sustenance that covetousness and wrong doing gain strength. [Sahl bin Abdullah]
Guidance of the Day:
Meditation and Prayer: We need to meditate as a route to improving our conscious contact with God. Meditation is different from obsessing and worrying. Obsession and worrying are fear connections. Meditation means opening our mind and our spiritual energy to connection with God. To connect with God, we need to relax as best as we can and open our conscious and subconscious mind to a Higher Consciousness -- one that is available to each of us.
In the busyness of our day and life, it may seem like a waste of time to slow down, to stop what we are doing, and take this kind of break. It is no more a waste of time than stopping to put gas in our car when the tank is almost empty. It is necessary, it is beneficial, and it saves time. In fact, meditation can create more time and energy than the moments we take to do it. Meditation and prayer are powerful behaviors that work. We need to be patient. It is not reasonable to expect immediate answers, insight, or inspiration.
But solutions are coming. They are ready on the way, if we have done our part -- meditate and pray -- and then let the rest go. When our conscious contact with God improves, our subconscious contact will too. We will find ourselves increasingly tuned in to God's harmony and will for us. We will find and maintain that soul connection, the God connection. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
You don't get to choose how you are going to die or when, You can only decide how you are going to live now. Life is a movement, activity, striving, fighting against baser things. We have too much to do, too little time.
