I believe in God with conscious certainty.
In 50 years, I have convinced many people
to believe in God and none could cause me to doubt.
I am assured about my faith, because all the Prophets
and saints wisely believe and obey God.
I see no proofs of wisdom in the saying, writing and doing
of secular people.
God’s love is evident to me in my observations of everything.

Baha’u’llah says:

“23. O DWELLERS IN THE CITY OF LOVE! Mortal blasts have beset the everlasting candle, and the beauty of the celestial Youth is veiled in the darkness of dust. The chief of the monarchs of love is wronged by the people of tyranny and the dove of holiness lies prisoned in the talons of owls. The dwellers in the pavilion of glory and the celestial concourse bewail and lament, while ye repose in the realm of negligence, and esteem yourselves as of the true friends. How vain are your imaginings!” (Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words)

HAIKU

I believe in God
For His love is evident
Beyond time and space

This Year of the Dragon 2012 is very special.
The West was enjoying nearly one month of relative peace.
The East only passes through three happy days of Lunar New Year.
Nowhere there is yet any sign of threat, peril or apocalypse!
It seems that I am almost right to foretll that this Year is the time
for high Hope, great Achievement and marvelous Progress.
Man’s Mind will win over Money, and we will build world peace
based on maturity, spirituality and divine guidance.

The Bab says:

“God hath undisputed triumph over every victorious one. There is no one in heaven or earth or in whatever lieth between them who can frustrate the transcendent supremacy of His triumph. He calleth into being whatsoever He willeth through the potency of His behest. Verily God is the mightiest Sustainer, the Helper and the Defender.” (The Bab, Selections from the Writings of the Bab, p. 163)

Faith is positive
In our thoughts as in actions

Man’s mind is supernatural:
Each mind is an unfathomable mystery.
It fears nature and it tries to master nature.
It claims to be natural and it confesses its powerlessness.
This is the Year it has to prove Itself or Money will win.
Yes: Mind and Money, which is supernatural?!

but the mind is just the chemical processes of a physical brain

Reply by CalhounBlake Jan 24th, 2012 at 8:11PM

the mind is indeed a physical organ of which we know many chemical reactions, however, we don’t know how it really even works, or what consciousness entails or how it arises. the mind is not simply a biological and chemical reaction.

Reply by pukirahe Jan 24th, 2012 at 9:25PM

You are right. The mind is not physical. It is spiritual power commanding the activities of the brain, where we see chemical reactions. The mind is commander of all human activities, physical, mental and spiritual.

Reply by ForgottenMuse Jan 24th, 2012 at 9:33PM

How did you arrive at “spiritual power”?

Reply by ForgottenMuse Jan 24th, 2012 at 9:34PM

just curious

Reply by pukirahe Jan 24th, 2012 at 9:54PM

“All these sacred words show us that man is made in God’s image: yet the Essence of God is incomprehensible to the human mind, for the finite understanding cannot be applied to this infinite Mystery. God contains all: He cannot be contained. That which contains is superior to that which is contained. The whole is greater than its parts. (Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 23)

Answer by pukirahe Jan 24th, 2012 at 9:35PM

Love is my religion.
It is divine, selfless, unconditional love.
It is revealed by God through His Messengers
such as Buddha, Christ, Baha’u’llah…
It is ancient, everlasting, imperishable.
It requires incessant faith, learning and practice.
I believe that it will be accepted by the majority of mankind
in this Age of maturity and fulfilment.

Abdul-Baha says:

“Praise be to God, that through the sufferings of Baha’u’llah souls are educated. Many there are shining from the horizon of eternal glory who sacrificed all, even to their lives and while under the sword cried, “Ya Baha El-Abha!” with radiant joy reflecting the power of Baha’u’llah. For love of him more than twenty thousand have quaffed the cup of martyrdom. While under the sword they danced with exultant joy. European historians bear witness to these facts and even the enemies of this cause have recorded stories of the martyrdoms, reputing to Baha’u’llah a supernatural power.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 47)

Who create money
Then fail to master it now

No, because people in 2012 are more mature
than in 1999.
We will witness greater achievements all over the world
as a new world of love, unity, peace, prosperity and progress.
This is truly the most challenging, promising and
controversial year for all human beings.
Each day of this Year of the Dragon 2012 is greater than a year
in the past, because we have human maturity, high technologies
and direct guidance from God.

Baha’u’llah says:

“That hour is now come. The world is illumined with the effulgent glory of His countenance. And yet, behold how far its peoples have strayed from His path! None have believed in Him except them who, through the power of the Lord of Names, have shattered the idols of their vain imaginings and corrupt desires and entered the city of certitude. The seal of the choice Wine of His Revelation hath, in this Day and in His Name, the Self-Sufficing, been broken. Its grace is being poured out upon men. Fill thy cup, and drink in, in His Name, the Most Holy, the All-Praised. (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 12)

WHY AND HOW TO PRACTICE DAILY READING?

Guest Post
Year of the Dragon 2012, Day 3

DAILY READING

One of the great teachers of the Faith in Nigeria was Mr. William Atiyama. You may have heard me speak about him. He was a very dignified man, noble in his bearing, big and tall. He was a farmer and a small trader. It was a pleasure to collaborate with him in teaching and consolidating the Faith in many villages. Much was learned about service and the dignity of humanity from him. It’s one of the crimes of our age that a person with such potential, who might have succeeded in any professional career, was uneducated. Because his parents hadn’t had enough money to pay his school fees, he was illiterate. He was a great teacher of the Faith. He taught new believers by the dozens. The sincerity of his speech, the illumination of his countenance, and the purity of his heart attracted souls. He consciously made many sacrifices for the advancement of the Cause. On all his teaching activities, he carried what he called his “Bahá’í Bible”. It was his copy of Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh. He couldn’t read or write. But he knew the power of holy verses, and the importance of showing that the Faith has holy books. He also knew the importance of relying on divine assistance.

One day, he and I went to a nearby town to present the Faith to some friends of his. At the meeting there were five women. They had heard William had accepted a new religion. They wanted to hear about it. In his confident and moving style, he presented some principles of the Faith. It always excited me to hear him teach. His countenance shone. One could feel his soul was inflamed with the beauty and power of the Teachings. At the end of his presentations, he always invited individuals to embrace the Faith. He was confident that what he was offering – the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh – was best for the seekers. When he finished speaking, the ladies dropped their heads. They were shy. Finally, one of them said what he had told them was good. Now, they wanted the professor, meaning me, to speak. She was indicating that they doubted that an uneducated, simple man like William Atiyama could be expressing such beautiful thoughts correctly; that I should confirm what he had said.

William leaped up from his chair. He cried, “What do you mean, hear from professor? I have presented my Faith. I have studied my Faith, just like professor.” He explained, “Bahá’u’lláh says every believer must study the Writings. He has commanded that every believer should read, morning and evening, the holy verses. And this is what I do!”

I looked at him. He couldn’t read. The ladies knew he couldn’t read. I thought he hadn’t realized he was exaggerating. Pointing to Gleanings, he told those astonished ladies, “This is my Bahá’í Bible. I read it each morning and evening like Bahá’u’lláh said I must.” After some seconds of silence, he continued, “Yes, I read my Bahá’í Bible. Bahá’u’lláh said I must.” Then he explained: “When I go to sleep at night, I put my Bahá’í Bible under my pillow. This is how I read the Words of God.” Can you imagine? Such faith! He said, “The Bahá’í Faith makes me do the best I can.” He went on to say, “When I wake up in the morning, I place my Bahá’í Bible over my heart and my heart reads the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh.”

This is a story of a believer’s new consciousness, his new way of thinking, a new way of coping and using creative powers. Those ladies became Bahá’ís. The experience moved me greatly. Still, it does. William’s story excites me to study more intensely. The account of an illiterate man propelled me forward on to a new way of learning, of thinking, of seeing, and loving the Faith.
