My Lent activities are going somewhat well. Doing mild fasting, praying more, spending more time with the family, making a point to LISTEN more, TALK less.
Allah is the Many, the One and Nothing,
Male, Female and neither.
Allah has many faces, many voices,
Who am I to question the validity of any Path?
By communing with and honouring the many faces of God
Am I not following the Law of Love?
To Love all that is in Allah’s creation, in all it’s many forms?
If All has come from Allah,
All is Allah’s Creation,
When I speak to An Morrigan, Cernunnos, Cailleach Bheur,
Am I not speaking to Allah?
Thursday, Day 2, I did well except for dinner. We were at my In-Laws for dinner and had pork for dinner. It was tasty. 😉
Friday, Day 3, Was a bloody disaster, started off well with a banana and almonds but then ate crap for the rest of the day and a lot of it.
Saturday, Day 4, Today! Doing quite well! All healthy food and no meat and smaller portions.
For all three days I have mostly avoided TV and too much useless internet time. Spending more time with my son. Lighting candles and praying everyday, not just the daily run on prayer but time taken to actually pray. Reading the Quran, will soon be starting the Gospel of Matthew. Spend the day with my Mom yesterday, more family time.
I am observing Lent this year. With my sudden interest in Monotheistic and Abrahamic Faith’s it seems only fitting. While I technically consider myself a Sufi Muslim at this point which means part of what I believe is that Jesus was a prophet but not God made flesh, I don’t see why I can’t reflect on his trial through the desert and find ways to bring myself closer to God.
Ways I am observing Lent (so far anyways):
Limited food intake, a sort of quasi fasting
Daily or preferably twice daily prayer (I’m still trying to get the hang of praying five times a day)
