LESSON OF THE DAY 780
Do you see-----if We let them enjoy life for years, then there comes upon them what they were promised, what they had been allowed to enjoy will be of no avail to them. [26: 205 to 207]
Hadith of the Day:
The destruction that worldly fortune and fame, or the ambition for them, inflicts upon one's faith, is worse than what a pack of wolves could do to a flock of sheep. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There are three big snakes that harm human beings: to be intolerant and impatient with the people around you; to be habituated to something you cannot leave; and to be controlled by your ego. [Shaykh Nazim al Qibrisi]
Guidance of the Day:
We don't even need to go out and look for good. We just have to release our own junk, the junk within us. When a person who eats lots of junk food decides to eat healthfully, over a period of time his or her health becomes stronger and stronger. That person hasn't really done anything, is not looking for help; he or she is simply taking care of his or her body. The junk goes out of the body and is eliminated. The same thing happens with our minds; as we eliminate the junk, the truth comes in.
We each have to find our own way, balancing the details of our lives. But we all need love. Be loving and be very aware that everything we do and say and think is coming back to us. So if we love ourselves and love life and love everybody around us, we will find that our own lives will fill with an abundance of all that is good. Get the fear out of the way, get the abuse out of the way, let people know they are loved and wanted and will be taken care of, and their true personalities come out. [Handbook for the Heart]
Food for Thought:
Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.
