| Why is it that when I reach Iftari time, after 18 hours of hunger, I don't eat much. Even if I'm completely starving. |
Feeling the same way brother. Not exactly feeling like I need to gorge myself, even after starving all day.
Hardest part is taking a break from one of Allah's most beautiful creations-- Mary Jane. Haha, so tough, especially for a stoner like myself. But I'm doing it. Holding strong, because it's worth it.
And tell me, friends, if you echo any of my sentiments. Doesn't Ramadan make you think? What if, at the end of our days, we didn't
have the promise of food or water, like so many poor brothers and sisters around the world? Definitely including them in my prayers.
I'm a big white guy, raised Catholic. This is my first fast. Been feeling distant from the Lord, due to some...turbulence in my life, so I figured Ramadan might help me get closer. It's working for sure. Regardless of your race, religion, beliefs, sexual orientation, we are all loved. I can feel that. And I believe we all can, if we try hard enough.
Well, shucks, look, I'm ramblin' again. Have a blessed Ramadan GTAF.
Bismillah, ah-rahmin, ah-rahim.
