It's been a great month of spiritual growth and reflection.  I didn't fast the entire time, but I did make a point of eating lightly, and reading a spiritual book for at least a little while every day.  

I highly recommend this practice to anyone who feels stuck, or in need of new perspective.  It doesn't have to be Ramadan - you could decide to keep your own vigil for a month, perhaps between two full moons, or at some other time that has meaning for you.

The idea is to do something different - leave your comfort zone and get out of your 'box'.  If you desire to mainifest change in your life - you must do 'something' different to clear the way for it to happen.

 

Eid al-Fitr

Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which in 2012 occurs on Aug. 19. Literally the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (the other occurs after the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca). At Eid al-Fitr people dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family.

A sense of generosity and gratitude colors these festivities. Although charity and good deeds are always important in Islam, they have special significance at the end of Ramadan. As the month draws to a close, Muslims are obligated to share their blessings by feeding the poor and making contributions to mosques.
