WHAT IS MOST TREASURED TO YOU?

What is the most treasured thing in the world to you?

Asked By: Starrose 1 hour ago

If you want tell me why

Answer by pukirahe Aug 24th, 2011 at 7:40AM

In the beginning I thought of love,
then I thought of faith, but finally I
think that knowledge must be
most treasured. For without knowledge,
faith and love are only blind faith and
blind love. And after a little more
thinking, I realize that true knowledge
can only be found in the faith of God.
Knowledge is not a thing gained in book learning,
but it is the light bestowed by God on our soul.
The reading of Holy Books will lead to
more important laws and principles.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Their so-called learning, when compared with that Knowledge, is utter falsehood, and all their understanding naught but blatant error. Nay, whatsoever proceedeth from these Mines of divine Wisdom and these Treasuries of eternal knowledge is truth, and naught else but the truth. The saying: “Knowledge is one point, which the foolish have multiplied” is a proof of Our argument, and the tradition: “Knowledge is a light which God sheddeth into the heart of whomsoever He willeth” a confirmation of Our statement.” (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 183)

WHO IS THE MAN CLAIMING THAT HE IS NOT WRONG?

How can someone be so confident in their faith that they refuse to even consider the possibility that they’re wrong?

There is the possibility that all men err.
Hence, they better depend on God than on themselves.
And the signs of God are evidently proved by people of
all generations throughout history in the Holy Books,
that all books of men cannot reflect the truth of just
one sacred verse.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Were the verse “And verily Our host shall conquer” to be literally interpreted, it is evident that it would in no wise be applicable to the chosen Ones of God and His hosts, inasmuch as Husayn, whose heroism was manifest as the sun, crushed and subjugated, quaffed at last the cup of martyrdom in Karbila, the land of Taff. Similarly, the sacred verse “Fain would they put out God’s light with their mouths: But God hath willed to perfect His light, albeit the infidels abhor it.” Were it to be literally interpreted it would never correspond with the truth. For in every age the light of God hath, to outward seeming, been quenched by the peoples of the earth, and the Lamps of God extinguished by them. How then could the ascendancy of the sovereignty of these Lamps be explained?” (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 126)

IF GOD FORGIVES LUCIFER WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?

If God forgives everyone and Lucifer decided he wanted to be forgiven and be a good boy. What would happen?

God is omniscient.
Satan does not exist.
Satanic man is forgiven again and again.
Repentance doesn’t mean to say words,
but returning to obedience to the Will of God.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Wert thou to realize what thou hast done, thou wouldst surely weep sore over thyself, and wouldst flee for refuge to God, and wouldst pine away and mourn all the days of thy life, till God will have forgiven thee, for He, verily, is the Most Generous, the All-Bountiful. Thou wilt, however, persist, till the hour of thy death, in thy heedlessness, inasmuch as thou hast, with all thine heart, thy soul and inmost being, busied thyself with the vanities of the world.” (Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 226)

WHY DO PEOPLE WORSHIP CELEBRITIES SO MUCH?

Why do people worship celebrities so much?

Asked By: aFreeMe 19 minutes ago

Good Question? (6)

Answer by pukirahe Aug 23rd, 2011 at 5:24PM

Man naturally loves beauty which is the glory
in the love of God. All act of sacrifice is
splendidly beautiful. The celebrities also
reflect great beauty, great power, great truth.
Spiritual celebrities like Boddhisatva Ananda, Saint Peter,
Imam Ali… are harder to see than Elvis Presley,
Albert Einstein, Samuel Morse….
People on lower level of maturity can only
see celebrities nearer to their physical sight.

Abdul-Baha says:

 I am waiting, eagerly waiting for these holy ones to appear; and yet, how long will they delay their coming? My prayer and ardent supplication, at eventide and at dawn, is that these shining stars may soon shed their radiance upon the world, that their sacred countenance may be unveiled to mortal eyes, and the billows of grace, rising from His oceans above, may flow upon all mankind. Pray ye also and supplicate unto Him that through the bountiful aid of the Ancient Beauty these souls may be unveiled to the eyes of the world.

The glory of God rest upon thee, and upon him whose face is illumined with that everlasting light that shineth from His Kingdom of Glory.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 355)

 HAIKU

We all love beauty

The most Ancient Beauty

But our sight is veiled!

WHAT IS THE BALANCE FOR WEIGHING ALL ACTIONS?

Would the kindest person in the world that didn’t believe in God go to Hell?

Asked By: cantlookforward 1 hour ago

Good Question? (6)

Answer by pukirahe Aug 23rd, 2011 at 4:42PM

There is no place called Hell in the worlds of God.
No man can become the kindest person without
doing the Will of God.
The Law of causality affects universally all beings.
All imaginations of philosophers, all sayings of men
in the Age of immaturity, have nothing to do with
the Divine Education of God.
Each mature man will independently investigate
the truth for himself.

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.” (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 19)
