Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Last year, we started on a path of discovery to understand what Ramadan 2011 was all about, and our reflections highlighted that it was all about:
individual motivation and improvement,
to reach societal elevation and advancement,
to instill compassion, kindness and justice in all of humanity.
This year, we aimed to start in a similar fashion, however, our heart continued to push us in the opposite direction. Instead of a path of discovery, we found ourselves leaning towards stopping, reflecting, and searching for an answer.
In Ramadan 2012, we want sustainability … or at least the possibility of sustainable inner peace.
I hope that I will be as light to your hearts in Ramadan 2012 as you are to mine.
Salam … PEACE … be upon you and I wish you a Ramadan Kareem, a Ramadan Mubarak and a Ramadan of Light !
