LESSON OF THE DAY 829
The pattern of those who take to patrons other than God is like the spider who builds a nest: for the flimsiest of houses is surely the spider's nest. If only they knew! God knows whatever else they pray to, for God is almighty, the supreme wise. But while We give people these examples, no one understands them except those who know. [29: 41]
Hadith of the Day:
Anger comes from Satan and Satan is from fire. Fire can only be put out by water. So Whenever one of you is stricken by anger, make an ablution. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If in spite of intense supplication, there is a delay in the timing of the Gift, let that not be the cause for your despairing. For He has guaranteed you a response in what He chooses for you, not in what you choose for yourself, and at the time He desires, not the time you desire. [Ibn Ata'Allah]
Guidance of the Day:
We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us. The ultimate destination of your life path is wisdom. Wisdom is the highest and deepest degree of knowledge, insight, and understanding. It provides you with the broadest perspective on life, its purpose, and the lessons you learn throughout your lifetime. When you find your wisdom, you are living in the light.
Wisdom is not a state to be achieved, but rather a state to be recalled. You arrived on this planet fully equipped with the boundless wisdom inherent in all humans; you only need to access that place within you that connects you to the infinite divine source in order to remember it. Wisdom is not intelligence. It has nothing to do with the level of your IQ or how well you did in school. Rather, wisdom is the highest level of emotional, spiritual, and mental evolution, at which you value intuition as much as information, willingness as much as ability, and inspiration as much as knowledge. It is where you synergize your deepest understanding with your everyday actions. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are. In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.
