LESSON OF THE DAY 948
God holds up the skies and the earth lest they fail; and if they should fail, no one else will hold them up: God is indeed most clement, most forgiving. [35: 41]
Hadith of the Day:
God may delay the punishment of some major sins until Judgment Day, but not the punishment of one's sins against one's parents. People will suffer for those very quickly, and in this life. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Be so tolerant that your chest becomes wide like the ocean. [Fethullan Gulen]
Guidance of the Day:
You are holding a passport in your hands right now, with valid visas to higher levels of consciousness and more abundant living. But it is not enough just to have a passport. You must make the journey. Be confident. Do not be afraid. Have courage. Take it one step at a time. Make the journey. A life well invested has few regrets. A life lived richly has few apologies to make. Find the rhythm in life. As you begin to experience the power of the rhythm of life----help others discover the rhythm of life.
"Let your light shine." The legends, heroes, leaders, champions, and saints, who fill the pages of our history books, are just symbols of the goodness and greatness within us all. Do not let your life be like a shooting star that lights up the sky for only a brief moment. Let your life be like the sun, which always burns brightly in the heavens, bringing light and warmth to all those on earth. Live the life you were born to live! Let your light shine! [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. DO GOOD ANYWAY.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. SUCCEED ANYWAY.
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow. DO GOOD ANYWAY.
