LESSON OF THE DAY 825

Hadith of the Day:

Wise Quote of the Day:
Satan is terrified of the shadow of the one who conquers the passions of the world. [Malik bin Dinar]
Guidance of the Day:
Courage is the price life exacts for granting peace. Courage is finding the inner strength and bravery required when confronting danger, difficulty, or opposition. Courage is the energy current behind all great actions and the spark that ignites the initial baby steps of growth. It resides deep within each of us, ready to be accessed in those moments when you need to forge ahead or break through insurmountable barriers. It is the intangible force that propels you forward on your journey.
It takes courage to embrace the idea that what you make of your life is up to you and to actually do what you need to do. You can learn how to access your courage by digging down deep inside and tapping into whatever spiritual connection sustains you. Courage is learned in the moment that you take a leap of faith and take action. Fears, real or imagined, only impede you. Banish them so that you may learn the lesson of courage and create the life you desire. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Death is a friendly but invisible companion, reminding us to live our lives and not just exist. Whatever prepares us for death enhances our lives. Awareness of our mortality will facilitate important shifts in our priorities and values. Living the present moment fully will be the best preparation for what the future holds.
