What is a wasted life?

No one knows until he dies.
When we get along harmoniously with other people,
we think that our life is useful.
When we are rejected, despised, chased away,
we may think that our life is wasted.
But these conditions are altering back and forth,
this way or that way, until our last happy or sad breath.
It seems that education is always
a good guide to a useful life. Your happy heart is the
correct balance for volition, effort and endurance.

Abdul-Baha says:

“Education holds an important place in the new order of things. The education of each child is compulsory. If there is not money enough in a family to educate both the girl and the boy the money must be dedicated to the girl’s education, for she is the potential mother. If there are no parents the community must educate the child. In addition to this widespread education each child must be taught a profession, art, or trade, so that every member of the community will be enabled to earn his own livelihood. Work done in the spirit of service is the highest form of worship.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 83)

Our life is wasted

It is a good occasion to remind all people that
half of the world is suffering ridiculous persecution
from fathers, brothers, husbands, male rulers
and boyfriends…. Let us find out new ways to
provide good education to all girls in order
to better our world with new generations of
knowledgeable, talented, compassionate mothers.

Abdul-Baha says:

“There are many other proofs concerning this vital subject, but I shall conclude with the words of Jesus Christ: “That which is born of the Spirit is spirit” and is acceptable in the Kingdom of God. This means that just as in the first birth the fetus comes forth from the matrix of the mother into the conditions of the human kingdom, even so the spirit of man must be born out of the matrix of naturalism, out of the baser nature, in order that he may comprehend the great things of the Kingdom of God. He must be born out of mother earth to find the everlasting life. And this collective reality, or spirit, of man, being born out of the world of nature, possessing the attributes of God, will continue to live forever in the eternal realm.” (Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 418)

Peace loving.
The more they talk about peace,
the more weapons are produced,
sold, bought, distributed, used and
renewed!
Who are the enemies that can threaten
all the great and small nations? When
shall we sit together to make clear plan
for reducing armament to avoid
imaginary apocalyptic Armageddon?

THE PATH IS THE GOAL?

Tonight I heard the quote “the path is the goal.” I like that way of thinking. How can I benefit living that way?

Answer by pukirahe Mar 10th, 2012 at 9:45PM

The Straight Path is the Ideal Goal.
Not all paths are straight Path, so
your first Goal is to seek for and to verify It.
Perhaps you have to set many goals to reach
this Primary Goal.
Once It is found, you will realize that
to tread on It you will reach no other goals.
Up here, you are happily a wayfarer
of the spiritual journey through boundless worlds
where you thankfully discover infinite wonders,
amazements and complete self-forgetfulness!

Verily, the wayfarer who journeyeth unto God, unto the Crimson Pillar in the snow-white path, will never reach unto his heavenly goal unless he abandoneth all that men possess: “And if he feareth not God, God will make him to fear all things; whereas all things fear him who feareth God.” [1]

I found a good way to remind me about God.
I believe in God, but sometimes I forget His counsels
and act wrongly.
Now I place the best counsel on my desktop
which nicely and thankfully serves as a good reminder
for my daily remembrance of God.

Abdul-Baha says:

“Reality or truth is one, yet there are many religious beliefs, denominations, creeds and differing opinions in the world today. Why should these differences exist? Because they do not investigate and examine the fundamental unity, which is one and unchangeable. If they seek reality itself, they will agree and be united; for reality is indivisible and not multiple. It is evident, therefore, that there is nothing of greater importance to mankind than the investigation of truth.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 62)

WHAT CAN A BUDDHIST LEARN FROM OTHER RELIGIONS?

What can a Christian learn from studying other religions?

Asked By: appointed3rd 15 hours ago

Good Question? (3)

Answer by GailG3 Mar 10th, 2012 at 4:34AM

If Christians were to study Buddhism, they would learn much about the beauty of what Jesus taught. Unfortunately, there are many christians who believe that the simple act of meditation is an overt invitation to Satan to enter their bodies. These can never learn anything because they use their own fears to hold themselves prisoner. Of course, if the day ever comes, they can decide to trust God to protect them during a meditation session, but deep down they must believe that either their God is impotent or there is no God – and that scares the bejeebers out of them as well.

Answer by pukirahe Mar 10th, 2012 at 3:46AM

The Christians do not understand the religion of Christ,
how can they understand other religions?
If I were wrong, why there were thousands of Christian sects?
Hence, I can say that nobody should claim to be possessors
of any truths, even truths concerning their own branches of learning.
No scientist understands all sciences; no philosopher all
philosophic theories, no politician all political systems!
Therefore, if we learn something in the spirit of opening
our mind to some new realities, we may come closer to
other people. If we study to reject the knowledge of other
people, we are isolating ourself into obsolete boxes.
Luckily, today we have the Internet as a powerful instrument
for each individual to open various boxes. The more mature he will
become, more universal knowledge he will gain
to consort with the rest of the world.
And, because this is the Age of human maturity, individuals
are advancing rapidly without waiting for the commands of their
narrow-minded or even outdated leaders.
Yes, the God of all worlds is leading His children to Him
through narrow doors, one by one, as the way they are
to this world. The difference is that each one is now making
free choice more freely and independently.

Pukir…., I loved what you said up to the very last paragraph. Then I disagreed vehemently. I am not being led home. I never left it. Your idea of God and my idea of a god-concept are two irreconcilable ideas.

Reply by pukirahe Mar 10th, 2012 at 3:14PM

Yes, this is feedom of thought, and why we observe the principle of independent investigation of truth. Otherwise, all mankind would accept only one religion.
