POLYGAMY OR MONAGAMY OR CELIBACY ?

Polygamy, Monagamy, or Celibacy ?

Asked By: Indigent (18-21, M) 1 hour ago

Celibacy is unnatural, this may cause
extinction to the human race.
Polygamy is uncivilized and lowering
human dignity.
Monogamy is best, this show respect to the
ideal principle of gender equality, family harmony
and social justice.
If there is imbalance of men and women in one country,
then we can encourage multicultural, multiracial,
multifaith marrige. This will lead the human race one
higher step to world unity and peace.
Monogamy will surely become prevalent in this Age
of human matuirty and civilized globalization.

Reply by Indigent Oct 3rd, 2012 at 3:45AM

I really appreciate this, it’s so well written. Idk if it will prevail, or can lead to a unified and peaceful world – after all, monogamy is hardly a new concept. But, the description of your vision is inspiring.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “And among the teachings of His Holiness Bahá’u’lláh is the equality of women and men. The world of humanity has two wings — one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly. Should one wing remain weak, flight is impossible. Not until the world of women becomes equal to the world of men in the acquisition of virtues and perfections, can success and prosperity be attained as they ought to be.”

ALL PEOPLE ARE ‘EQUAL’ BUT…?

Are all People ‘Equal’ But Some People are ‘More Equal’ Than Others?

Asked By: juicyboy21 20 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Sep 18th, 2012 at 6:11PM

All people are equal spiritually,
because all are created in the image
and likeness of God.
In believing that man comes down from the monkey,
then some people are ‘more equal’ in size, in strength,
in tricks and in other physical aspects.
And it seems that the belief in Darwinism is prevalent,
so there is yet no mutual love and mutual respect
among all human beings as equal souls.
But God gives us free will to make choice, so divine
education will show us how to make the right choice.
I believe in absolute equality and I accept to be
one of the minority that will soon become majority
with spiritual education freely developed on the Internet.
Hail Internet, the free school of this great Age.

 “Would the extension of education, the development of useful arts and sciences, the promotion of industry and technology, be harmful things? For such endeavor lifts the individual within the mass and raises him out of the depths of ignorance to the highest reaches of knowledge and human excellence. Would the setting up of just legislation, in accord with the Divine laws which guarantee the happiness of society and protect the rights of all mankind and are an impregnable proof against assault — would such laws, insuring the integrity of the members of society and their equality before the law, inhibit their prosperity and success?”

HEADS OR TAILS?

Heads or tails please answer honestly?

Neither head nor tail
Our world is completely a new world.
In the olden days, people love so much
to be head that they wish to be even head of
a chicken than tail of an elephant.
Nowadays, role play changes very quickly and
naturally. All go up and down, forward and backward,
according to requirements of time and efficiency.
It is for years I see myself roaming around the world
without leading or following any persons. One of
the traits of the Internet is that it removes all barriers
of classes, ranks and positions.
Our world will become an ideal world of mutual
love and mutual respect among people of all
ages, genders, occupations.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “The foundation of progress and real prosperity in the human world is reality, for reality is the divine standard and the bestowal of God. Reality is reasonableness, and reasonableness is ever conducive to the honorable station of man. Reality is the guidance of God. Reality is the cause of illumination of mankind. Reality is love, ever working for the welfare of humanity. Reality is the bond which conjoins hearts. This ever uplifts man toward higher stages of progress and attainment. Reality is the unity of mankind, conferring everlasting life. Reality is perfect equality, the foundation of agreement between the nations, the first step toward international peace.”

I fear that you are quite right.
He who truly loves himself will not have time
to judge others. he must be busy learning, meditating,
serving himself, his family, the human race… Yes, he must
be a quite busy man.
And the more he is busy in service, the more he will
meet good colleagues, good collaborators, good
supporters… who work together like ants to build
their colony.
Those who hate themselves cannot have a good
place to stand in life, hence they come to hate, to judge,
to criticize other people. They do this because they
are in lack of of education.
For attaining a civilized society of love, peace and progress,
parents and governors should never forget to provide
proper eudcation for their subordinates.
A new world of the mature humanity must be
a world of high education, where most people
conduct their lives as virtuous world citizens and
world administrators.
God does not create a class of powerful kings to dominate,
to exploit, to harass a class of helpless slaves, of
miserable servants, of desperate outlaws. No,
He creates all equally in His image and likeness.

 “Therefore strive earnestly and put forth your greatest endeavor toward the accomplishment of this fellowship and the cementing of this bond of brotherhood between you. Such an attainment is not possible without will and effort on the part of each; from one, expressions of gratitude and appreciation; from the other kindliness and recognition of equality. Each one should endeavor to develop and assist the other toward mutual advancement. This is possible only by conjoining of effort and inclination. Love and unity will be fostered between you, thereby bringing about the oneness of mankind.”

BOYS AND GIRLS BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY?

Why are boys and girls taught to behave differently ?

Asked By: darkice123 39 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Aug 28th, 2012 at 8:04AM

Boys and girls are not much different,
but the role of fathers and mothers is
distinctively different. So girls should be
educated more than boys, in order that they
will educate a new race of men for our world.
Once, Solomon gives the same apparels and
physical styles to 50 boys and 50 girls,
but through belaviours he can distinguish
easily who are boys and who are girls.
This is the beauty of human characteristics.
In our civilized world, we talk much about
equality as conformity, but the reality must be about
dignity, personality and diversity.
Today, we are lucky to acquaint with the divine
education on the Internet, which is delicate,
transcendant and attractive,

Abdul-Baha says:

 

“In former times it was considered wiser that woman should not know how to read or write; she should occupy herself only with drudgery. She was very ignorant. Baha’u’llah declares the education of woman to be of more importance than that of man. If the mother be ignorant, even if the father have great knowledge, the child’s education will be at fault, for education begins with the milk. A child at the breast is like a tender branch that the gardener can train as he wills.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 86)

Posted by pukirahe Jul 29th, 2012 at 9:46PM

No man can become Buddha and enter Nirvana.
Nirvana is not a place but a state of mind like heaven.
The Holy Spirit manifests Himself from Age to Age
to give mankind higher and higher education. He is not
man, He is the Manifestation of God, belonging
to a station that human beings can never attain.
The nine Buddhas, or nine Manifestations of
the Holy Spirit in the Adamic Cycle are Abraham, Moses,
Zoroaster, Khrisna, Buddha, Christ, Muhammad, the Bab,
Baha’u’llah.
All saints like Peter, Ananda, Ali… are highest station that human
beings can reach.
This concept of Progressive Revelation shows the real
equality among all Religious Founders and bring mankind
to mutual love and mutual respect. Other theories showing
inequality among the Prophets will never lead to religious
harmony as we wish through a resolution of the UN on
October 20, 2010.
Wishing that each individual will study the Holy Books
to verify this eternal Truth.

Women are only half of the world, and the bird
of humanity cannot soar high with only one wing.
See how bad it was with the world ruled by only
the other male half!
Today is the Age of human maturity; we need wiser
cooperation, consultation, education to solve
the global problems and family delicate matters.
Creatures of all kinds can work together harmoniously,
we intelligent beings must show our greatest wisdom
in the whole universe.
Luckily, with the Internet, we can see how human beings
cooperate without gender discrimination. We are
discussing things as completely free and equal individuals.
Yes, our world is clearly becoming a better world

The oppressed who have right on their side, must not take that right by force; the evil would continue. Hearts must be changed. The rich must wish to give! Life in man should be like a flame, warming all with whom it comes into contact.

CONSIDERING YOURSELF OF A CERTAIN CLASS?

Do you consider yourself a certain class..if so what one and why?

Asked By: Blue1311 2 hours ago

Posted by pukirahe Jul 3rd, 2012 at 5:27AM

Classes are only vestiges of primitive societies:
Top leaders, officials, middle class, unprivileged masses.
There was no hope for kids of the fourth category
to be transformed into the first one.
Today all such outdated barriers have been removed
by new thinking, new means of communications, new
understanding about the reality of human beings.
We are equally all rational beings, who cannot decide
their birth, but can decide their place in societies.
The transformation is clearest in early religious communities.
Even the Prophet behaves as an equal among His believers,
and no barriers separate believers among themselves.
Then classes were restored afterwards by corrupted leadrers.
And today, in almost all societies, classes have become
more and more some sorts of prejudices.
Leaders are no longer people of the high class, but they are
only temporary representatives in their office terms.
Moreover, human dignity, is known by personal virtues,
more than by social position or possession.
Yes, today, we all belong to one class of human beings.
Each individual develops his excellence for servitude,
and no longer for leadership or earthly privileges.

Yes, unfortunately.
Because the world was organised and dominated
by men for too long. It needs some more time for
radical change, real change.
This profitable goal, for both men and women,
will be reached only when first priority of education
be given to the girls, until the time all mothers can teach
their chidren about gender equality.
The day may come faster if each individual knows
and sincerely serves this cause.

The people who have come in contact with this spirit of the age hold that the time has come when the highest concepts of man are to be realized and become part and parcel of every nation’s fabric.

FREEDOM EQUALITY WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT?

Freedom equality what is more important.?

Asked By: boblack 4 hours ago

Good Question? (4)

Answer by pukirahe Mar 17th, 2012 at 5:15PM

True knowledge is more important.
When we know how to save ourself from the prison
of self, freedom is more important.
When we know that all human beings are the children
of God, and treat all with mutual love and mutual
respect, then equality is more important.
If we have no knowledge, and consider humans as
equally monkeys that freely make funs, then freedom
and equality are horrible!
As for true knowledge, we can learn from the
Holy Books which are freely and equally accessible
to all searching minds on the Internet.
