Baha’u’llah says:
“My purpose in revealing these words is to cause all men to draw nigh unto God, the All-Glorious, the All-Praised. Beware lest ye deal with Me as ye dealt with My Herald. Do not object, when the verses of God are sent down unto you from the Court of My favour, saying, “these do not proceed from an innate and untaught nature”, for that nature itself hath been created by My word and circleth round Me, if ye be of them that apprehend this truth. Inhale from the utterances of your Lord, the All-Merciful, the sweet smell of the garment of inner meanings, which hath been diffused throughout the entire creation and hath shed its fragrance over all created things. Happy are those who perceive it and hasten unto God with radiant hearts.”
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 42)

What was your favorite moment today?

I am enjoying sweet music on Youtube.
I am sharing meaningful pictures on Facebook.
I am conversing with friends by answering questions right here.
I will keep on sitting happily like this before my computer until when I can no longer stand the drowsiness! And then I get a nap with more beautiful dreams.
I am thankful to God for providing me with the sufferings under feudalism, colonialism, war evacuation in my childhood and all the facilities of this modern day.
Wishing that mature people in this great Cycle will overcome global trials to build a more ideal world for generations to come.
Be happy and more hopeful.

Abdul-Baha says:
“Unless one accepts dire vicissitudes he will not attain. To me prison is freedom; troubles rest me; incarceration is an open court; death is life and to be despised is honor. Therefore, I was happy all that time in prison. When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed freedom, for self is the greater prison. When this release takes place, one can never be imprisoned.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 21)

DO YOU GIVE MONEY TO THE POOR?

Do you give money to the poor?
Asked By MyLifeJourney3 22-25, M in Community
Reply By Me

No and never.
Giving alms is degrading man’s nobility and it is not the solution for poverty elimination and other socio-economic problems.
Poverty will only be eliminated by fundamentally spiritual solutions such as:
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.

Abdul-Baha says:
Erelong the darkness will pass away entirely, and the regions of the East will become completely illumined; enmity, hatred, ignorance and bigotry will no longer remain; the satanic powers which destroy human equality and religious unity will be dethroned, and the nations will dwell in peace and harmony under the overspreading banner of the oneness of humanity. Therefore, we supplicate the Lord our God with sincere and contrite hearts, asking aid and assistance in the accomplishment of this mighty end: that the nations shall be unified in the Word of God; that war, enmity and hatred between races, religions, native lands and denominations shall disappear and be forever unknown; and that peoples and nations shall spiritually embrace each other in the indissoluble bond and power of the love of God.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 440)

WOULD YOU RISK YOUR LIFE TO SAVE PEOPLE?

Would you risk your life to save a thousand people?
Asked By cin8888 13-15, F in Community

Reply By Me

I don’t know what you mean about saving.
In reality, no man can save the life of another man.
A person may die to voluntarily to prevent the explosion of a grenade to secure the physical existence of many people, but those people may soon die by many other reasons.
To me, real salvation is to give spiritual quickening to other souls, as done by Christ and His disciples through their martyrdom. Even this, still depending on positive response of the hearers. If the hearers don’t sincerely repent, they cannot be saved. Most people are not learning enough to distinguish the physical existence from the spiritual life; the physical is common to all creatures, while the spiritual is specifically for human beings. It is regretful that not many people are responding thankfully to the noble sacrifice of the Prophets, the saints and the martyrs!
I don’t risk my life to save other people, but I only try to live in accordance to the counsels of God, which are now available on the Internet.
Praying that true lovers of mankind will reach the truth and act accordingly.

Abdul-Baha says:
Certain religious teachers, think only of their creeds. They believe a holy war can conquer the world. They reason thus: “All the other religious teachers are in error and I am obliged to chastise them and show them their mistakes for their own salvation.”
The belief of the friends of God is quite different. They believe that one must affiliate with all, love all humanity and seek ever to better its condition. God is one, the true Shepherd of all creation. Let us be kind to every one in order to unify the world and spread affection abroad.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 97)

Yes.
I contributed ‘hearted’ answers to various questions on EP.
I got more learning from friends on Facebook.
I wrote new articles on WordPress.com.
The world appears more and more meaningful, more beautiful, more peaceful to me in each following day.
Because of these optimistic sentiments, I got up early every day to share my joyful feelings on Internet and bring your positive opinions into my daily life in my family, my neighborhood, my hopeful world, which is truly the good world that God favors to all human beings.
Praying God for awakening of more of His happy and thankful children.

ONE TOPIC FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

If there was only one topic you could talk about for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Asked By crescendo282 31-35, F in Community

Education.
Physical, human and divine education.
People of all time, as human beings, need to adopt physical, human and divine education, in order to live usefully, happily and progressively. A life in ignorance is of no difference to death.
Physical education will equip man with skill to earn daily living.
Human education will equip man with ability to build higher and higher civilization on earth.
Divine education will enhance man’s insight to receive God bestowals for life eternal. This is the true purpose of God in the creation of man among all creatures.
Details for establishment of this complete education and its application are designed in the Sacred Scriptures of the Bab, Baha’u’llah and Abdul-Baha, which are available on the Internet for the mature human race in this Universal Cycle which will last no shorter than five thousand centuries.
Yes, this is the most important subject for me and for many generations to come.

Abdul-Baha says:
Now reflect that it is education that brings the East and the West under the authority of man; it is education that produces wonderful industries; it is education that spreads great sciences and arts; it is education that makes manifest new discoveries and institutions. If there were no educator, there would be no such things as comforts, civilization. or humanity. If a man be left alone in a wilderness where he sees none of his own kind, he will undoubtedly become a mere brute; it is then clear that an educator is needed.
But education is of three kinds: material, human and spiritual.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 7)

With education
God’s love manifests brightly
On all human minds

I’M SORRY, I DON’T BELIEVE YOU

That is good, because only God should be the Object of man’s belief.
God alone can give us all what we need to live as His children. Only God understands us and only He can give us education and training to thankfully make progress in His innumerable worlds. He is the only Compassionate Father Who patiently forgives all our sins. Wishing that all individuals making investigation of truth independently for eternal reunion with their Heavenly Father.
Because of His boundless love, God creates all things known and unknown for our training, education and spiritual progress. Let us listen to His call and never deprive ourselves of this divine favor.
I am thankful to God for guiding you and me and other siblings of ours back to Him.

Abdul-Baha says:
“Men are fighting for the possession of the earth. They fight for that which becomes their graves, their cemeteries, their tombs.
In reality all are members of one human family — children of one Heavenly Father. Humanity may be likened unto the vari-colored flowers of one garden. There is unity in diversity. Each sets off and enhances the other’s beauty.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 25)

Men fight for their tombs
For not knowing their Father
