oh well, that’s what you get when you don’t get enough sleep. I tired myself out and got sick. That means I probably won’t be fasting today. It feels kind of wierd, even though it’s quite clear in the Kitáb-i-Aqdas that the sick are exempted from fasting. Actually, I was quite amazed when I read the part where it specifically talks about that. The wording is “In time of ill-health it is not permissible” to fast. Wow. God wants us to take care of ourselves. There it is.
I don’t like not fasting during this period because I feel it cheats me of the bounties and blessings that are reserved for those who are fasting. But still, it’s clear that nobody’s going to get much bounty if they’re sick and they don’t drink water. They’ll just get dry and more sick. And besides, countless bounties are reserved for those who arise to assist His Cause, right?
Heh. Another case of “I want things to go my way”, I guess. Maybe if I’d just shut up and arise, I wouldn’t have to worry about not fasting 😉
