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)

USING MONEY TO SOLVE PROBLEMS?

Why is it people are thought to use money to solve problems is that the only way ?

Asked By: darkice123 39 minutes ago

Money is one of the worst means for bartering.
It may cause collapse to many economies.
We have thought of various means for replacement,
but none has succeeded. Gold and real estates are
better ensured than money; but they are too inconvenient
for exchange. Credit cards and other digital modes
of payments are used, but it may take time to be
popular. With the progress of the world, we are also
thinking of a world currency, but this takes more time.
Our big problem now does not concern money, but
it concern trust among people.
In various communities, in narrow exchange,
people can trust each other with words or signature.
Money is not needed. So, the more our education
can restore trust among people, the more easily the
matter of finance will be solved.
I have seen one case, the load of one debt
destroys many families. Yes, they just borrow and pay around,
and they destroy each other when one of them uses violence.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Then it is evident that in creation and nature evil does not exist at all; but when the natural qualities of man are used in an unlawful way, they are blameworthy. So, if a rich and generous person gives a sum of money to a poor man for his own necessities, and if the poor man spends that sum of money on unlawful things, that will be blameworthy. It is the same with all the natural qualities of man, which constitute the capital of life; if they be used and displayed in an unlawful way, they become blameworthy.”

UNDENIABLE PROOF ABOUT GOD

Why to people think there is a god, can you prove there is? I can’t say there is or isn’t, i have no proof either way.

Asked By: trmptguy56 1 hour ago

Posted by pukirahe Aug 22nd, 2012 at 4:03AM

I firmly believe in the One True God,
the Creator of all worlds. I can never think
or say the reverse, because the proof is quite evident.
I cannot prove His existence to you
as you cannot prove your existence to me.
Nobody can prove anything to another person.
Each individual can say that I have a mother,
but he cannot prove that he has a mother
to any one else.
In the past, human beings BELIEVE that
what they see is real; today they know that
it is not. The earth is not the fixed center of the universe.
What they claim to know by reason, by tradidion,
by intuition, by inspiration, by combination of all
those capacities are wrong.
Then what is truth for us to stick to?
Firstly, men cannot attain absolute truth.
As for relative truth, we base on sincere
agreement depending on individual experience
.
Most people may agree that they have a mother;
but some people still cannot agree as in the case
of Adam, Christ, or orphans.
The number is smaller with things unknown to
physical experiences: love, justice, freedom.
But the number may reach billions about God
for those who live the religious life and cherish
the boundless love He bestows on them.
That is why religion – Faith in the One True God -
persists always in the living souls, not as blind masses,
but as pious individuals.

Reply by pegasuss Aug 22nd, 2012 at 12:22PM

Faith in the one God? You talk of course about only one religion, a minority one at that. All religions claim to have the true God. Indians claim hundreds, one for every purpose really. And all those Gods claimed are different, not the same one. Tell me why is it that in a war or a sporting event both leaders or coaches claim God is on their side? Can’t both be right, right? What is this crap about nobody can prove anything to anyone else. Total misguided bullshit. Some beliefs which were held as fact do change as science advances but at the time it was fact. For example my mother lived. Fact. She has since died. Fact. At both times it is a fact and true. Most people may agree they have a mother? Everyone had a mother moron. She may have died or left but they all had mothers else there would be no humans. Where do you get this shite from? Pious individuals. You talk of Christians again and I have to say I’ve never met one who practices the life as written in the Bible, you’ve broken Commandments with what you have written here. Denying mothers exist for some. For goodness sake, that’s a blatant lie and thou shalt NOT bear false witness. As too your lie about billions believing in your God. India doesn’t, nor do the majority of large Asian countries so billions is a way too many given the erosion of this delusion in the West. You say also people cannot agree on Adam, Christ or orphans. Adam is a fiction, as is Christ but who are these orphans that appear out of nowhere except your imagination. In a normal life everybody ends up as an orphan as parents tend to die before their children. Not always but mostly. I’m now, and finally, an orphan due to that process. Never read such opiniated crap in my life. Go back to watching the latest religious ranter on YV.

These are among the attributes of the exalted, and constitute the hall-mark of the spiritually-minded. They have already been mentioned in connection with the requirements of the wayfarers that tread the path of Positive Knowledge. When the detached wayfarer and sincere seeker hath fulfilled these essential conditions, then and only then can he be called a true seeker. Whensoever he hath fulfilled the conditions implied in the verse: “Whoso maketh efforts for Us,” he shall enjoy the blessings conferred by the words: “In Our Ways shall We assuredly guide him.”

No books can contain all the good things God
has done for me with and without my asking.
He gives me good family, good in-laws, good friends.
He gives me the life of a human being with rational soul.
He gives me the family of noble human race.
He gives me Holy Books for my education.
He gives me good house, good working place,
good environment.
He gives me good computer that I have the good
virtual world, with good music, good entertainment,
good websites for writing and reading anything.
He gives me good water, good electricity, good food.
Yes there are many things I wish to have,
and other things I could not imagine how I can obtain.
In this year, He gives me better health after expensive
medical treatment, family reunion from various countries,
and amazing pilgrimage.
I want the world to enjoy the good things that I enjoy.
And I believe that they all can. Because God already
gives all in His creation of His worlds. I cannot do
anything for people who don’t believe. But for those
who believe, they know that why they are enjoying
greater blessings of God in His immense physical
and spiritual realms. Please seek for God, do His Will
and be thankfully happy.

I was born in a Buddhist family.
I love the teachings of Buddha and
I serve in various Buddhist Associations.
However, some questions of mine could
not be answered by Buddhist Teachings,
such as its separation from other religions,
it exists with outdated priesthood and celibacy.
Then, one day I found a book that answers
satisfactorily those questions and lots of others.
The best thing is that I gain absolute reverence to
Buddha and to Founders of all other religions,
and I can live harmoniously with believers of all
religions and non-believers of all cultural backgrounds.
The religion that I am following does not claim to be
the most high, but it is only a New Chapter of
the Eternal Book concerning religion. Newer Chapters
will be revealed in the coming millennia for a more
and more civilized mankind.
The foundation of my faith is Progressive Revelation of
One God, One Religion, One Mankind.

HOW TO KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT WHAT IS GOOD?

Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

Asked By: UltraHighMonarch 2 hours ago

Good Question? (3)

Posted by pukirahe Jul 22nd, 2012 at 2:56AM

I learn that:”The source of all good is trust in God, submission unto His command, and contentment with His holy will and pleasure.”

(Baha’u’llah,Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 153)
Meditating of this verse, I believe without a doubt that trust in God is good. Meditating about this verse and translate its meanings into actions is good. Looking for His command in various Holy Books and observe them is good. Contentment with the results of the consequent actions, whether criticism, opposition, death… all is good.
For billions of people, with application of thousands of verses, the good is so various, so immense, so unfathomable. But, this is the supreme criterion for each and all to rely on. Otherwise it is evil. Yes, non-existence of good is tremendously horrible.

“As long as man is a captive of habit, pursuing the dictates of self and desire, he is vanquished and defeated. This passionate personal ego takes the reins from his hands, crowds out the qualities of the divine ego and changes him into an animal, a creature unable to judge good from evil, or to distinguish light from darkness. He becomes blind to divine attributes, for this acquired individuality, the result of an evil routine of thought becomes the dominant note of his life.”

What is good and bad?
What is belief in God?
Who gives definiton and makes judgement?
Your question poses three huge questions.
These huge questions require your marvelous
mind to look into all worlds for answer.
The world of nature tells you what is good for you and for mankind.
The world of your soul tells you what is good for you and for mankind.
The world of God tells you what is good for you and for mankind.
Use you free will to make independent search you will
surely find the greatest answer.
Yes, my answer is meaningless.
The answer of Buddha might be too complex.
Only your own answer will tell you what is really good
for you, and is it necessary to be good also for mankind.

Truthfulness is good and it makes all things good.
You love your parents truthfully, that is good.
Nobody can read your heart, so nobody can
judge you as good or bad. Even your parents,
they may see signs of love, but they cannot
esteem how truthful it is. Only you yourself
know this truth, and therefore only you can tell
a thing which is good or bad.
And hence, praise or curse of other people are
meaningless. We accept them as courtesy, but
we cannot judge them. Other people don’t know
our truthfulness and we don’t know theirs.
But love, forgiveness, generosity… are always good
because they are the attributes of God. When you
practice these qualities, you can live with a peaceful
conscience, without worrying about applaud or criticism.
I believe you are good, because I learn from the Holy Books
and know that all people are born good. The difference comes
afterwards with sincere or insincere practice.

Year of Dragon, Day 161

I think that all sins are fully cleansed with
sincere repentance. God’s grace is boundless.
Our feelings of sadness or happiness may
depend on three things: sincerity, knowledge
and trust.
We must be sincere in admitting to God the wrong
we have done and returning to doing good things.
We must learn to know God and His love,
and this learning will make clear to us what are
the laws of God and how is true ebedience. We
easily do wrong again and again due to lack of knowledge.
Once, we sincerely turn directly to God
with love and knowledge, then our trust in Him will be
strong enough to disperse all negative feelings.
I pray and I believe that you will find happiness in God.
