LESSON OF THE DAY 977
If you disbelieve, God is independent of you, yet He does not prefer disbelief in servants. And if you are grateful, God prefers that for you. And no one who takes responsibility can bear the burden of another. And then you will return to God, who will tell you what you were doing, for God knows what is in hearts. [39: 7]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever withholds his anger, Allah will withhold His punishment from him. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
We are nothing if we believe in nothing. We are everything if we follow our true nature and place our trust in God. [John Ahmad Herlihy]
Guidance of the Day:
Circumstances are the conditions that stand around us, magnetized to us by the central core of our thought-forms. Change the thoughts at the center of the magnetic field, and you change the conditions that stand around you. This ability to draw conditions to us has tremendous practical applications. It means that we can use our thoughts to make our life. It means that we can really change for the better.It means that things no longer hold power over us, for we realize that they are just the expression of our thoughts, and nothing more.
Harmonious living tells of harmonious thinking. A turbulent life reveals some kind of inner turmoil or lack of resolution. We may believe that we are positive, settled people, but if we notice troubles or conflicts in our outer conditions, we must look within to see what inner negativity is bubbling, or bubbled at some earlier time. If you want to know what's in your subconscious, you don't have to go to a psychiatrist or a psychic. Just look at the condition of your bedroom, your car, your house, your health, and your relationships. They are photographs of your subconscious. Outer events are simply the skin and bones of inner thoughts, and to really take control of our lives, we must treat them as one. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Happiness is not a check cashed, a car bought, or oil pumped. Happiness is the solace that is derived from living upon the truth, a peace of mind that is achieved by living according to sound principles, and calmness that is brought about by living a life of goodness.
