The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

Any work performed consciously is prayer, however some careers help keep to goals of Unity uppermost. I enjoyed my career as a teacher and always kept Abdu’l Baha’i compassionate guidance.

I love this so much, such a helpful reminder of our own value and unique contributions we can make, which is an easy thing to forget!
