WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO KNOW FROM GOD?

If you could personally speak to God, what would you want to know?

Answer by pukirahe

I sought for God first through the Holy Books.
He teaches me daily innumerable good things that I am powerless to retell them as clearly as He does, to other people including my family members.
So I only suggest that each individual should seek for God by her/his own eyes and her/his own mind.
Otherwise, s/he will continue to be confused for this world and also for the world to come.

Baha’u’llah says:

“The first duty prescribed by God for His servants is the recognition of Him Who is the Dayspring of  His Revelation and the Fountain of His laws, Who  representeth the Godhead in both the Kingdom of His Cause and the world of creation. Whoso achieveth this duty hath attained unto all good; and whoso is deprived thereof hath gone astray, though he be the author of every righteous deed. It behoveth every one who reacheth this most sublime station, this summit of transcendent glory, to observe every ordinance of Him Who is the Desire of the world. These twin duties are inseparable.”

(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 17)

Yes, yes.

The purpose of man is to live happily as a man.

His happiness is reproducing descendants to maintain this grace of God on earth, before he returns to God in Heaven.

God allows man to take a short journey in the immense world of creation in order that he can thankfully appreciate the particular grace in the world of revelation which is unknown to all other creatures.

In the beginning, man may think that he is simply the evolution of dust. Then, he knows that he is far higher than that, he is spirit.

Then, he knows that he is much much higher with the spirit of faith.

Then, he knows that he is noble son of the Holy Spirit.

Then, he knows that all this knowledge is only the beginning of the eternal journey in the innumerable worlds of God to experience His boundless love.

And I am continue my learning to understand the Will of the Living God of love. This is my unending happiness.

ARE YOU A HOPELESS ROMANTIC PERSON? :).

Are You A Hopeless Romantic Person? :).

I am a hopeful romantic person.
My parents love me boundlessly and I love them unconditionally.
I love my wife and children always and they love me beyond my expectation.
I love my grandchildren, I love my friends, I love the world and I feel loved abundantly in awakening as well as in dreams.
I really don’t know any other sentiment sweeter than this.
As for some people who still feel lonely, disappointed, hopeless… I suggest that they should keep on loving sincerely, faithfully, patiently… then they will surely see the positive change.
It was really hard for me to love the world, when I went through war evacuation, through abortion clinics, through prisons…, until one day I realized that peace depends on my thinking and not on the environment. And thinking is most positive when based on the counsels of God, the Creator and the Possessor of all worlds. Nothing can go against the compassion of the Omniscient and Omnipotent God.

Abdul-Baha says:
“These virtues do not appear from the reality of man except through the power of God and the divine teachings, for they need supernatural power for their manifestation. It may be that in the world of nature a trace of these perfections may appear, but they are unstable and ephemeral; they are like the rays of the sun upon the wall.
As the compassionate God has placed such a wonderful crown upon the head of man, man should strive that its brilliant jewels may become visible in the world.”

PEACE IN THE MOST GREAT PEACE

WORLD PEACE Is it universal? How do u define it?
Asked By slang4 46-50, M in Community

No more war at any place on earth: that is Lesser World Peace.
Complete harmony among all souls and their harmony in the love of God: this is the Most Great Peace, beyond all time and space.
As for Lesser Peace, we may witness soon, in this Age of human maturity.
As for the Most Great Peace, we will be informed by the Universal House of Justice in the Golden Age.
All the beautiful things have been announced by Buddha, Christ, Muhammad…. and now prescribed in details in the Sacred Scriptures of the Central Figures of the Baha’i Faith.
At present, we still see more signs of war than peace, but reality will appear as natural miracle, like an ugly egg suddenly opens its shell into a nice chicken.
Believers, who sincerely pray and do the Will of God, and attaining inner peace, may experience the solace promised by the One True God. And, sooner or later, all people will see the eternal Light of Glory.

Baha’u’llah says:
“Now that ye have refused the Most Great Peace, hold ye fast unto this, the Lesser Peace, that haply ye may in some degree better your own condition and that of your dependents.
O rulers of the earth! Be reconciled among yourselves, that ye may need no more armaments save in a measure to safeguard your territories and dominions. Beware lest ye disregard the counsel of the All-Knowing, the Faithful.”

KNOW AND BE THYSELF

What’s wrong with me, I’m lacking motivation?
About 2 years ago I graduated from college, got my bachelors and got a job in the probation department (sorta). It’s been over a year since I quit a full time I had. The job was very mentally, emotional, and physically draining. You can say I’ve been bumming it most of the time. I have been looking for a job but not really. I have no motivation. I have very sweet, supportive parents that are not in my case about looking for a job. Deep inside i feel embarassed of myself for not wanting to better myself. I would want to find a job, and help my parents even if it’s just a bit. But I’m lacking motivation, what is wrong with me?

Seek ardently for your real self and be yourself.
No true human being is lacking of motivation.
There is nothing wrong with you. Obtaining a college degree, you are among the elite of the human race. Many youth and children are still deprived of this education. They can do nothing to help their parents, but being forced into cheap labor, or even into begging, prostitution, civil war!…
The real requirement for all human beings, in all conditions of all countries, is to make their own destiny, by seeking for their true selves, being themselves and save themselves.
It would be fortunate for him who prays and gets into direct contact with the guidance of God. No unbelievers can gain their way into the love of God. Only, the faithful one who prays with sincerity will catch the ray of divine light. Yes, the Sun of Truth shines on all human beings, but only s/he who opens her/his mind for guidance will receive and recognize its warmth.
The seeking of the One True God is similar to seeking any other things on earth. It is like seeking for food, for gold, for the beloved one…. We must train our mind to obtain a clear concept about the object of our search, the One True God, in order to see His signs and follow those signs to the end. Then, we will be taught about our true life and our mission in His world of creation and His world or revelation. This is the method taught in all Holy Books, but it must be learned and applied by each individual soul. Nobody can teach or accomplish this task for others.
Each person might confusingly be a vain scholar, farmer, teacher, celeb, incognito…, but all are significantly glorious children of the One True God. Man’s true self is the greater world, man’s salvation is attainment of utter nothingness.
This is the evident proof of God’s love and justice to all His children. All come from God, and all will return to Him.

DID YOU WANT TO HAVE MORE STUFF?

Are you one of those who wanted to have more stuff when a child, but who is now grateful that you didn’t?
Asked By NorseChief 26-30, M in Community
Reply By Me
Yes, exactly.
I used to wrongly think that possessing things is happiness. I love to have much money to buy lots of stuff, to travel and to show wealthiness to other people’s eyes. But I did not learn how to make money; I just wait for its coming as a miracle!
I go through life as a person being born under an unlucky star. I had no sufficiency in eating, clothing, entertaining and never giving presents to people I love.
And fortunately, I finally find out that happiness with things that we cannot buy is true happiness. I have good relatives, good friends and much free time to pursue the path of homelessness, selflessness and spiritual progress.
Now I am truly happy by understanding clearly that I am not a body having an unreal soul, but a true soul using the body as a horse for my short journey on earth. I am thankful to God for this marvelous creation.

Baha’u’llah says:
“The stages that mark the wayfarer’s journey from the abode of dust to the heavenly homeland are said to be seven. Some have called these Seven Valleys, and others, Seven Cities. And they say that until the wayfarer taketh leave of self, and traverseth these stages, he shall never reach to the ocean of nearness and union, nor drink of the peerless wine.”

DO YOU GIVE MONEY TO THE POOR?

Do you give money to the poor?

Asked By MyLifeJourney3 22-25, M in Community
Chosen as the Best Answer
No and never.
Giving alms is degrading man’s nobility and it is not the solution for poverty elimination.
Poverty will only be eliminated by fundamentally spiritual solutions:
Restoring human dignity.
Providing more vocational and spiritual education.
Creating more jobs.
Reforming wealth distribution by legislation on tax, subsidy, insurance, social welfare, .
Sharing profits among employers and employees.
Encouraging voluntary sharing from wealthy people.
Nations seeking ways to end wars and building world peace and so on.
Giving alms is childish practice in antiquity. Now, the mature human race, especially the governors, should think about establishing peaceful, prosperous and progressive communities all over the world.
