Free election, high education, democracy+ aristocracy,
transparency, efficiency, servitude.
Throughout history I have not heard about such ideal governments.
Today, with divine education and human maturity,
we will soon witness saintly servants appear in all countries.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “There is no doubt that this wonderful democracy will be able to realize it and the banner of international agreement will be unfurled here to spread onward and outward among all the nations of the world. I give thanks to God that I find you imbued with such susceptibilities and lofty aspirations and I hope that you will be the means of spreading this light to all men. Thus may the Sun of Reality shine upon the east and west. The enveloping clouds shall pass away and the heat of the divine rays will dispel the mist. The reality of man shall develop and come forth as the image of God his Creator.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 234)

WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR LISTENING LESSONS?

 “And all the people listened attentively. — Nehemiah 8:3 (NIV)

I was in the middle of a phone conversation with a friend when I found my mind drifting off, thinking about the many things I had to do.I’m not sure how many seconds had passed when I realized I’d hardly heard a thing she said.I was brought back into the conversation when she questioned, “Don’t you agree?”

My mind raced for the right response. What would I say to her, “ Uh, sure.”

I figured I’d better respond in truth and ask her to repeat what she had just told me. After all, she may have said something vitally important and it was my responsibility to listen.

Have you ever been caught in an embarrassing encounter like that?

Comment of Pukirahe

 In solving problems of life, we need to listen to the opinions

of all other colleagues in our consultations. If each one among us is not

listening well, how the conclusion can be considered as collective result?

Wise counsel of our time is that law should govern

and not the individual; so it becomes more important that members of

various institutions need to humbly listen to one another lovingly and

respectfully. How and where is the training for this essential skill?

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Sincerity is the foundation-stone of faith. That is, a religious individual must disregard his personal desires and seek in whatever way he can wholeheartedly to serve the public interest; and it is impossible for a human being to turn aside from his own selfish advantages and sacrifice his own good for the good of the community except through true religious faith. For self-love is kneaded into the very clay of man, and it is not possible that, without any hope of a substantial reward, he should neglect his own present material good. That individual, however, who puts his faith in God and believes in the words of God — because he is promised and certain of a plentiful reward in the next life, and because worldly benefits as compared to the abiding joy and glory of future planes of existence are nothing to him — will for the sake of God abandon his own peace and profit and will freely consecrate his heart and soul to the common good.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 96)

 God listens to us

While we listen to self-love

Is this good for man?

Who believes in 21 – 12 – 2012 and what do you think will happen?

Asked By: tricster 49 minutes ago

Answerby pukirahe Aug 4th, 2011 at 11:03PM

Yes, I believe.
Awesome things will happen throughout the world,
but beneficial to mankind and not at all negative.
I firmly believe in this near and bright future based on
the moral maturity of man and the technological progress
in all fields such as education, health care, communication,
social projects, agricultural renovation and effective team work.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “It is evident, therefore, that man is in need of divine education and inspiration, that the spirit and bounties of God are essential to his development. That is to say, the teachings of Christ and the Prophets are necessary for his education and guidance. Why? Because They are the divine Gardeners Who till the earth of human hearts and minds. They educate man, uproot the weeds, burn the thorns and remodel the waste places into gardens and orchards where fruitful trees grow. The wisdom and purpose of Their training is that man must pass from degree to degree of progressive unfoldment until perfection is attained.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 295)

 HAIKU

 Man will make progress

To higher levels of love

For the greatest peace

WHAT TO BE DONE TO IMPROVE WORLD ECONOMY?

What needs to be done to restore the economy?

Asked By: ianrockwell 31 minutes ago

Answer by pukirahe Aug 4th, 2011 at 10:01PM

Electing global government to establish a just and fair economy for all peoples.
Electing new national governments for the same purpose.
Initiating financial revolution for redistribution of resources.
Broadening spiritual revolution to encourage voluntary sharing.
If these measures were utopian, then waging WWIII to reduce world population.
If this seems too crazy, the UN/ECOSOC should organize an Interpol
(not International Police but International Poll) to gather opinions
of the whole human race for the wisest solutions.
If nobody is not doing anything new, then we might have to suffer bitter anarchism!

Abdul-Baha says:

 “My highest hope and desire is that the strongest and most indissoluble bond shall be established between the American nation and the people of the Orient. This is my prayer to God. May the day come when through divine and spiritual activity in the human world the religions shall be reconciled and all races of mankind come together in unity and love. Fifty years ago Bahá’u’lláh proclaimed the peace of the nations and oneness of the divine religions, addressing His words to all the kings and rulers of the world in specific Tablets. Therefore, my supreme desire is the unity of the East and West, universal peace and the oneness of the world of humanity.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 341)
