Baha'i Month of Fasting

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Today is the second day of the Baha'i Fast. We get up before sunrise to eat, then abstain from eating and drinking until sunset. It is a symbolic fast. All the world's religions have some form of physical sacrifice to remind us of who we really are...not these physical bodies...we are spirits living in a human form.

I love this time of year, as hard as it is. It makes me reflect on my life and what I want to improve, and set goals for the coming year. Our new year begins at the end of the Fast on March 20. Not disparaging other people's calendars...but doesn't it make sense that the new year is the Spring Equinox?
