WHY SENDING PRISONERS TO PRISON?

What’s the point of sending prisoners to prison if they’re getting decent food, games, cigarettes all at taxpayer expens

Posted by pukirahe Sep 18th, 2012 at 7:55PM

They are supposed to be educated, not to be killed.
All sinners need forgiveness for repentance.
And there are prisoners who are not sinners,
but they are incarcerated by lots of false
reasons and bad pretexts. This injustice gives
honor to real sinners, because they can live
among good people.
Urgent reformation need to be done to stop
false imprisonment and to reduce wasted money
for no good results. Better educational measures
should be applied for real sinners to rethink and redo
their lives.
Many false understandings and outdated practices
are causing more harm to human beings than restoring
their dignity and positive correction.
It is regretful that prisons today are like or worse
than prisons in the Middle Age.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “I am leaving Paris for the Orient though in reality I am always with you. Place does not matter. Two people may be in the same room and yet not attain to a visitation. When I was in prison many people came to see me. They crossed seas and deserts and yet remained in the city of the blind while others in far-distant lands attained the meeting.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 187)

Escaping or obeying all laws.
There are natural laws, social laws and spiritual laws.
Natural laws prevent us from injuring our body.
Social laws prevent us from breaking collective order.
Spiritual laws prevent us from dwelling in ignorance.
Escape is almost impossible, therefore most of us
chosing to obey. We don’t jump down from high buildings;
we don’t run our car when the traffic light is red; we don’t
quit schools when we are in our childhood. Then, with obedience,
we have a healthy body, we have knowledge and we can
go anywhere we like. That is real freedom.
If we deprive our children from schooling, their ignorance
will cause them to do wrong and they get a really miserable life.
In order to gain more freedom, we have to get higher
education in order to enjoy greater pleasures in the mental
and spiritual worlds. That is real freedom.
Wishing that more individuals will observe the laws
to secure their own freedom and freedom of other people.

Baha’u’llah says:

 

“Unless one accepts dire vicissitudes he will not attain. To me prison is freedom; troubles rest me; incarceration is an open court; death is life and to be despised is honor. Therefore, I was happy all that time in prison. When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed freedom, for self is the greater prison.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 21)

GREATNESS ACHIEVED BY THINKING?

Can greatness be achieved by thinking?

Asked By: appointed3rd 4 hours ago

Good Question? (5)
Answer by pukirahe Apr 18th, 2012 at 7:14PM

Yes by thinking and acting as told by God.
Because true greatness is not a gift of men,
but it is self-realization of our own life as
the greater world – yes a spiritual reality that
encompasses all universes.
Now we can look for the commands of God
through the Holy Books available on the Internet.
I have placed some links to these Books on my
pukirahe blog at wordpress.com.

The Bab says:

“To the fire Thou dost command, ‘Be thou a soothing balm unto My Servant’, and to the prison, ‘Be thou a seat of tender compassion to My Servant, as a token from My presence’. Yea, I swear by Thy glory; to Me the prison hath proved to be naught but the most delightful garden of Paradise and hath served as the noblest spot in the realm above.”

WHY QUESTIONS ARE BORING?

Why are all the questions…..

Asked By: Always2ndGuessing 27 minutes ago

sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring…

Answer by pukirahe Apr 2nd, 2012 at 3:15AM

All questions are boring and interesting.
Your question appears as boring because it attracts only
few answerers who explain that because you are bored.
But to me, your question is most interesting, because
it reminds me about many important things:
Askers should invest more artistic attraction to questions.
Answerers should think twice on all matters.
The more we make a greater effort, the more our forum
will become useful and pleasing to netizens.
The use and attraction of the Internet really depends
very much on the participation of both wise and stupid
people.
I don’t judge other people, because I know assuredly
that I am stupid. I actively participate to this forum
because I am not ashamed of being stupid, and because
I am learning instead of preaching. Yes, free and open
conversation will increase love, understanding, agreement…
beneficial to all people.

Baha’u’llah says:

“We implore God for patience and forbearance, inasmuch as thou art but a feeble creature and bereft of comprehension. Wert thou to awaken and inhale the fragrance of the breezes that waft from the retreats of eternity, thou wouldst readily abandon all that thou dost possess and in which thou dost rejoice, and choose to abide in one of the dilapidated rooms of this Most Great Prison. Beseech God to grant thee such mature understanding as to enable thee to distinguish praiseworthy actions from those which merit blame. Peace be upon him who followeth the way of guidance! “
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 177)

Are you a Baha’i or have you heard of the faith and what do think about the faith ? honest answers

Asked By: onir 57 minutes ago

it is a Faith of equality and peace we believe in God and that all of mankind are equal =D It originates from Iran

Answer by pukirahe Mar 24th, 2012 at 11:23PM

I am a Baha’i and I am happy to see questions
and answers concerning the Baha’i Faith
either pros or cons.
This religion is newest among all world religions
like Buddhism, Christianity, Islam…
therefore there are lots of sympathizers
and people who misunderstand.
I believe that the Baha’i Faith will bring mankind
back to God faster than former religions,
because today we have means of communication
at the speed of light, and humans are more capable
to understand abstractive subjects.
You can get more links to the Baha’i Faith

Abdul-Baha says:

“This is a short summary of the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. To establish this Bahá’u’lláh underwent great difficulties and hardships. He was in constant confinement and He suffered great persecution. But in the fortress (Akká) He reared a spiritual palace and from the darkness of His prison He sent out a great light to the world.
It is the ardent desire of the Bahá’ís to put these teachings into common practice: and they will strive with soul and heart to give up their lives for this purpose, until the heavenly light brightens the whole world of humanity.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 30)

With Abdul-Baha:

“To me prison is freedom; troubles rest me; incarceration is an open court; death is life and to be despised is honor. Therefore, I was happy all that time in prison. When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed freedom, for self is the greater prison. When this release takes place, one can never be imprisoned. They used to put my feet in stocks so,” and he put out his feet before him to illustrate and laughed as though it were a joke he enjoyed.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 21)

Life is full of joy
Even within prison when

HOW TO END VIOLENCE?

Is violence ever necessary? If so, when? If not, why isn’t it?

Asked By: rolanalphred 4 days ago

Answer by pukirahe Jan 26th, 2012 at 3:27AM

Year of the Dragon, Day 4

Nobody wishes to receive violent actions.
We think that they should be used to train other people,
and history shows that this thinking is completely wrong.
We all love knowledge, wisdom, justice… which are the sweet
fruit of education for a better and more civilized world.
Sooner or later, we will banish all torments, retaliations, wars…
and beautify our planets with ornaments of sweet specch,
warm fellowship and positive cooperation for collective progress.

Reply by rolanalphred Jan 26th, 2012 at 3:31AM

Quite flowery, but wishful thinking methinks.

HOW MUCH DO I UNDERSTAND THE SACRED VERSES?

For those of you who are religious, how much of your holy text do you think is literal truth?

Asked By: Naturallytanned 12 hours ago

Answer by pukirahe Sep 21st, 2011 at 8:34AM

Holy Books need to be interpreted by the Prophets
and Their appointed Interpreters.
As a human being, I realize that I cannot understand
all the meanings of sacred verses and the mysteries in
the Divine Revelarion. God accepts my limited comprehension
and my sincere practice. And all other people are also free
to do their own study and do the Will of God with their
own knowledge,
God is Supreme Judge, hence I dare not judge people
and I also fear not their judgment.

Yes, worse than the prison for criminals,
worse than the prison for activists,
worse than the prison for political opponents;
it is the prison of self.
While living in this prison, I still expect more
and more admirers like you expect,
and more and more admirers from the wide world!

Baha’u’llah says:

Though We have transmitted to them, in several Tablets, that which We were commanded, yet We do it once again as a token of God’s grace. Perchance they may recognize the Lord, Who hath come down in the clouds with manifest sovereignty.” (Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 74)
