Because life is the most precious
and most mysterious of all things.
Life is precious, because it growing, advancing
and reaching the highest physical and spiritual
summits all existence. See how large, how
intelligent, how intellectual is the inorganic Internet,
and we will continue to develop it in all aspect
and all directions. But it can never act against
our will.
Life is mysterious, because there are still other
properties and attributes that we don’t know.
We can never create it. And as long as we exist,
we can still make more interesting discoveries.
By His love, God creates us for us to know
and to enjoy His hidden treasuries.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Then our life will be revivified, we shall enjoy eternal existence, be refreshed with the breath of the Holy Spirit and become informed of the mysteries of creation. Then we shall be inspired to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity; we shall take a portion of the divine grace and become resplendent with the rays of the heavenly luminary; then the human race will mirror forth the attributes of the eternal kingdom and will move like a peaceful sea and each individual will appear as a wave. As we look upon the sea, we will comprehend it as the sea of God; as we look upon the waves, we will realize that they are the souls of humanity. The sun is one; all light is one; the rays are one; it shines on all.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 171)

Before ‘Abdu’l-Bahá left the Church, he wrote in the old Bible used by generations of preachers, the following words in his own native Persian, the translation being added as follows:

Inscription in the Old Bible

Written by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Persian

 “This book is the Holy Book of God, of celestial Inspiration. It is the Bible of Salvation, the Noble Gospel. It is the mystery of the Kingdom and its light. It is the Divine Bounty, the sign of the guidance of God.”

‘Abdu’l-Bahá Abbas.

SOME LITTLE THOUGHTS ABOUT TRAFFIC LAWS?

Are traffic laws different in each different state/country?

Asked By: Diabolico (22-25) 32 minutes ago

I know this might sound like a(n) silly/irrelevant question but are the traffic laws different in each different country/state? I’ve been living and following the traffic laws in the USA in my whole so I never got the chance to learn and know the traffic laws that are different from the USA. So does anyone know exactly what’s the difference between the traffic laws in the USA and the others in different countrys?
For example: Like Japan, China, Europe, Canada, South America, and etc.
But before any of you answer, let me warn you first. Don’t make a post to answer my question unless you’re gonna answer politely and give me the answers (if you know the answer) that I’m looking. Cause already had enough insults and cyber bully comments right now. I’ve been through enough so I really would appreciate it if you guys cut me some slack right now. Thank you.
P.S. – Sorry for my french.

Same purpose, different expressions.
Purpose: Civilization, Freedom, Safety.
Expressions: Light, Whistle, Fine…
Traffic laws in a civilized country is like
divine laws in all societies.
God wants all His children to live freely, safely
and more and more civilized, so He reveals laws.
We imitate Him in traffic but not yet in all other
aspects of our community life. Perhaps, causes
and effects are easiest to observe in traffic.
For a driver who obeys the traffic laws, no policeman
will bother him, he can freely and safely reach his
destination. The disobedients cannot enjoy these
blessings.
For life in general, we are subjected to natural laws,
social laws and divine laws. The more we know and
obey the laws, the more we will enjoy freedom, safety

and become more civilized. Otherwise, the sufferings

of the primitive life in jungles.

Strive that your deeds may be cleansed from the dust of self and hypocrisy and find favor at the court of glory; for ere long the assayers of mankind shall, in the holy presence of the Adored One, accept naught but absolute virtue and deeds of stainless purity.

DREAMS HIDDEN MESSAGES FROM GOD?

Do you think that dreams are hidden messages from God?

Asked By: Justagirl444 19 minutes ago

Telling you about future events, or helping you in making a decision..etc.

Good Question? (5)

Posted by pukirahe Sep 15th, 2012 at 7:07PM

Yes definitely.
But they are only of personal values.
Sometimes we confuse other physical symptoms,
mental disorder with vision. It is precisely hidden
message for the receiver alone, he cannot expect
other people to believe. Proof is that some of our dreams
have became exact realities after some years or
decades. The more the heart is pure and humble,
the more it is receptive to divine inspiration.
Today science and religion go more closely
hand in hand, so we can distinguish fact from
imagination by using both rational logic and
profound meditation.
God is always with man in His evident and
mysterious ways; therefore attainment of truth
cannot be forced but only by self investigation
freely, independently and patiently.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Verily, I say, this phenomenon is the most mysterious of the signs of God amongst men, were they to ponder it in their hearts. Behold how the thing which thou hast seen in thy dream is, after a considerable lapse of time, fully realized. Had the world in which thou didst find thyself in thy dream been identical with the world in which thou livest, it would have been necessary for the event occurring in that dream to have transpired in this world at the very moment of its occurrence. Were it so, you yourself would have borne witness unto it. This being not the case, however, it must necessarily follow that the world in which thou livest is different and apart from that which thou hast experienced in thy dream. This latter world hath neither beginning nor end.”

Supreme being on earth to reflect all the names
and attributes of God.
Names and attributes of God are countless so
reflection is beyond description or education.
The sun shines on all things, but reflection
of earth is different with reflection of copper
or diamond.
At present, highest level of human knowledge
is attained through physical, human and divine
education. Science and religion are opening
broader and broader horizons for human
discoveries.
We still know very little about our departure from God
and we are completely ignorant about our
return to Him. Each human being really has
great chance to enjoy this spiritual and eternal journey.

Baha’u’llah says:

 

“This Point is the focal centre of the circle of Names and marketh the culmination of the manifestations of Letters in the world of creation. Through it have appeared indications of the impenetrable Mystery, the adorned Symbol, He Who standeth revealed in the Most Great Name — a Name which is recorded in the luminous Tablet and is inscribed in the holy, the blessed, the snow-white Scroll. And when the Point was joined to the second Letter [1] which appeareth in the beginning of the Mathani,[2] it traversed the heavens of exposition and utterance. Then the eternal Light of God shed its radiance, flared up in the midmost heart of the firmament of testimony and produced two Luminaries.”

(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 101)

 

[1 i.e., the letter 'B', the second letter of the alphabet.]

[2 The opening chapter of the Qur'án, which begins with the letter 'B': Bismi'llahi'r-Rahmani'r-Rahim (In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful). This chapter of the Qur'án was revealed twice, once in Mecca and once in Medina.]

Posted by pukirahe Jul 19th, 2012 at 5:54PM

The end was near as seen by the Adventists (before 1844)
The end is over and the Lord God is coming
as seen by the Babis (1844-1863)
The Lord is with us as seen by the Baha’is (since 1863….)
All these facts can be found on the Internet,
especially in Wikipedia.
The end does not mean the destruction of the world.
It means the end of the Adamic Cycle
And now we are living in the Baha’i Cycle.
Beginning and ending of Dispensations, of Cultures,
of Cycles… occur successively on the eternal world of creation.
False prophets keep on spreading rumors
about Apocalypse, but they cause no panic to the mature
human race. The present threat is based of Mayan calendar,
that the end will come in 5 months, but mankind keep on calmly
planning for five years, fifty years, five hundred years and so on.
The most evident proof is the overflow of knowledge
that all kids around the planet can obtain perfect education
to ignore all sorts of baseless rumors.
Yes, perfect education, physical, human, divine,
is available on the Internet, freer and freer for
the whole human race. And our world is becoming
the world of light on daytime as well as on nightime.

“O my beloved! Immeasurably exalted is the celestial Melody above the strivings of human ear to hear or mind to grasp its mystery! How can the helpless ant step into the court of the All-Glorious? And yet, feeble souls, through lack of understanding, reject these abstruse utterances, and question the truth of such traditions. Nay, none can comprehend them save those that are possessed of an understanding heart. Say, He is that End for Whom no end in all the universe can be imagined, and for Whom no beginning in the world of creation can be conceived. Behold, O concourse of the earth, the splendours of the End, revealed in the Manifestations of the Beginning!” (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 168)

Year of Dragon, Day 141

Yes, certainly, positively and thankfully.

Certainly, because I have learned, lived and
enjoyed all the marvelous things for over 70
years on the Path showed by the most recent
Manifestation of God: Baha’u’llah.
Positively, because this belief is opening my vision
to the reality of One God, One Religion and
One Mankind, so that I can see spiritual beauty
in all diversity.
Thankfully, because all what I say can be verified
in real life as well as on this virtual world with the
accessibility to all Holy Books. And this is really a
definite promise to the true knowledge and unity
of the whoile human race in a very near future.

Time and space are relating only to the physical world.
Nobody can tell the age of God, the Creator of all worlds
physical and spiritual. If God is older than the universe, He is
not perfect, because the Creator did not have His creation.
If He is younger than the universe, then the universe created itself!
This reality is answering many other questions concerning God.
Believers attain certitude, because they read sacred verses,
then meditate about their meanings.

We know nothing, including love.
