LESSON OF THE DAY 824
There are some people who say, "We believe in God," yet when they are harassed on God's account, they construe the strife of men as the castigation of God. And if help came from your Lord, they would say, "We were actually with you?" But is God not best acquainted with what is in the hearts of beings? [29: 10]
Hadith of the Day:
The best of my people are those whose strength of religion is like steel. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
God gave us the Prophet because He loved what we might become. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]
Guidance of the Day:
Learn to let go. That is the key to happiness. Release is simply the act of letting go. In every situation, you can either take responsibility and attempt to cause things to happen, or you can let go. Neither option is better or worse. Every situation is different, and only you will know what is the right thing to do in each case. There are times when you will need to take responsibility for the progression of a relationship, and times you will need to just let go and walk away. You learn the lesson of release when you begin to choose it as a conscious act rather than as a passive means to hide from responsibility.
Another emotion that often lurks in people's minds is anger. This anger can fester in their unconscious minds, blocking the flow of their natural power to create their lives. They focus so intently on their negative feelings that they are blind to the power of forgiveness and release. Sometimes negative memories can clutter your mind and take up the space needed in order to imagine and create a life based on what you want. It is unfortunate that "bad" things happen, but clinging to the psychic debris left behind can do even more damage than the actual event. People are able to overcome and release even the most heinous of experiences if they are willing. The human heart is remarkably resilient, and you will need to trust yours in order to release the memories that stagnate you. You can learn to release it through awareness and willingness. Once you become aware of what stands in your way and become willing to release it, you are ready to manifest the life you were meant to be. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Religion primarily came to bring prosperity and happiness to people. Your value is determined by your faith and character. Trust in Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
