Good Question? (6)

Yes undoubtedly.
Trust among human beings will only be restored when
honesty is considered as fundamental virtue.
Lies, even little lies, will lead to more lies and
life will become jungle.
Without honesty, we will never have true love,
then unity and peace.
There are cases harmful for honest people, but that
is the cost of trust and of all other values in life.
That is why in our confusing society today,
honest people are highly loved and respected.
With maturity, knowledge, civilization, human beings
will choose what is best for individuals as well as
for societies.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Believers must show their belief in their daily lives, so that the world might see the light shining in their faces. A bright and happy face cheers people on their way. If you are sad, and pass a child who is laughing, the child, seeing your sad face, will cease to laugh, not knowing why. If the day be dark, how much a gleam of sunshine is prized; so let believers wear smiling happy faces, gleaming like sunshine in the darkness. Let the Light of Truth and Honesty shine from them, so that all who behold them may know that their word in business or pleasure will be a word to trust and depend upon.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 124)

Yes, definitely.
Once the world feels of your honesty,
then you can go through all doors,
You become very rare and very needed
in our world today.
Our world is funnily ruled by money:
money for the rich, money for the poor,
money for all human activities!
Many countries are now collapsing for
lack of honest people to manage money
with transparency, security, honesty!
I have just heard that in various financial
institutions people are teaching honesty to
their members. And I wonder who have the
knowledge and prestige to teach morality!

Honesty and Truth

We do need them the most

And not want to have!

HOW TO BE HAPPY?

Is it better to find happiness by any means, or to try to find it within the confines of social “norms”?

Asked By: findmeholdmeloveme 5 hours ago

Outside of social norms includes taboos, legality issues, and/or harm to other people.

Answer by pukirahe Jan 31st, 2012 at 2:39AM

Happiness is not a thing to be got, found or obtained;
it is realization, or more precisely, self-realization.
All kings and beggars can be happy, when they know
themselves, are themselves, under the light of their
true knowledge.
I already answered on EP many questions about how
to know oneself and how to be oneself.

Baha’u’llah says:

“Moreover We counsel them to observe justice, equity, honesty, piety and that whereby both the Word of God and their own station will be exalted amongst men. Verily I am the One Who exhorteth with justice. Unto this beareth witness He from Whose Pen rivers of mercy have flowed and from Whose utterance fountains of living waters have streamed forth unto all created things. Immeasurably exalted is this boundless grace; immensely blessed is this resplendent favour.” (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 77)

HAIKU

Be your happy self
As children of the Father
Who cares for them all
