LESSON OF THE DAY 974

Ayahs of the Day:
The revelation of the Book is from God, the Mighty, the Wise: for We have revealed the Book to you in truth; so serve God sincerely in your way of life. Is it not to God that sincere obedience is due? Yet those who take protectors other than God say, "We only worship them that they may draw us nearer to God." God will judge between them as to their differences. For God does not guide any lying ingrate. [39: 1,2,3]

Hadith of the Day:
It is sufficient evil for a man to look down upon his Muslim brother. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Beware of your ego, and trust not its mischief;
The ego is worse than seventy devils. [A Poet]

Guidance of the Day:
The reality of thoughts and the power they have to create and to change the world around us brings with it a supremely important realization: We can bless and we can heal. Blessing and healing are not mystical secret powers reserved for a special few. They are the God given right----and----responsibility-----of every human being, and as soon as we admit to ourselves that we can really be instruments of God's healing love, we can begin to make the kind of changes in our lives and in the world that we always wanted to make, but did not feel that we were worthy or capable of offering.

Thoughts can make or break us. Such is the power of thoughts. We must respect the power of thoughts. We do not create our lives from nothing, but we certainly set into motion the events that create circumstances. By the time we see a circumstance, we are seeing the effect of a series of events that began with a thought long ago. Any change in circumstances is due only to a change in the way we think. If we want to change our circumstances, we must change the way we think. We cannot allow ourselves the luxury of an "idle thought", for there is no such thing. Every thought is a seed. What we plant in our mental garden will grow. This is the law of mind. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Sow a thought, reap a word;
Sow a word, reap a deed;
Sow a deed, reap a habit;
Sow a habit, reap a character;
Sow a character, reap a Destiny
