LESSON OF THE DAY 1076
As for those receptive to guidance, God increases guidance for them, giving them their conscience. So are they waiting for anything but the end of time, lest it come upon them suddenly? But signs of it have already come; so how can their reminder benefit when it has come upon them? [47: 17,18]
Hadith of the Day:
Put your trust in Allah, you will be the strongest of men. [Ahmad]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Actions are but lifeless forms whose soul is the secret of sincerity in them. [Ibn Ata'Allah]
Guidance of the Day:
When you meditate, dedicate your upliftment to the upliftment of all humanity. Have the intention that you are not just meditating for yourself, but for the benefit of all. We have within our very minds, hearts, and hands the power to heal and to transform the world. One kind word, look, or touch can make all the difference to a brother or sister in need of love. It is said that "if everyone on earth loved each other, the earth would shine brighter than the sun."
If every one of us would do one little kind act for another person on just one day, the earth would be redeemed instantly. It would release such a powerful energy of light and love that the forces of darkness, in the form of pollution, weapons, and hatred, would immediately disburse. Such a day would set into motion a snowball of service that could cleanse the earth of all the negative things that have ever been accumulated, and release the spirit of hope and giving throughout the universe so that every planet in every galaxy would reap the benefit. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Time is fixed income and, as with any income, the real problem facing most of us is how to live successfully within our daily allotment. Learn to use ten minutes intelligently. It will pay you huge dividends. Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.
