LESSON OF THE DAY 813
Say, "Do you see if God made the night fall over you perpetually until the day of resurrection, what deity other than God could bring you light? Will you not listen, then?" [28: 71]
Hadith of the Day:
I bring good tidings to the one who cleanses his heart and to the one whose inner beauty shines in his face. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
God calls Himself "Baseer" (observant), so that the knowledge that He is watching you may keep you from sinning. [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
When your external actions reflect your internal code, you are in alignment with your morality. This is how an individual gains integrity. Integrity is important because without it you are living with a sense of division within yourself; you feel incomplete and conflicted. You will know when you are not acting in alignment with your moral code, because your conscience will remind you of the difference between what is ethically right and how you actually behaved.
You will most likely experience feelings of guilt or remorse that will serve as a clue to you that the lesson of ethics needs to be learned. Whether or not you are discovered and punished for wrong behavior does not matter. You will instinctually know that you behaved wrongly. You may have only yourself to answer to, but isn't your conscience a powerful teacher, if you listen to it? There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Associate reverently, as much as you can, with your loftiest thoughts. Great thoughts reduced to practice become great acts. You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
