IS NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS A CLICHE?

Who else thinks New Year’s resolutions are cliche?

Asked By: justmeee17 38 minutes ago, 3 days left to answer.
Every year till this year, I have made them and never been able to keep them.

Answer by pukirahe Dec 31st, 2011 at 4:13AM

Yes, it is.
Calendar differs from culture to cultrure,
from religion to religion, from organization
to organization.
For individuals there are variously special
occasions to make resolutions.
My New Year is March 21.
My date for new plan is April 21.
But I have made special resolutions
at any time each year or each period of five years.
There is nothing new for me tomorrow Jan 1, 2012.

Baha’u’llah says:

“34. O DWELLERS OF MY PARADISE! With the hands of loving-kindness I have planted in the holy garden of paradise the young tree of your love and friendship, and have watered it with the goodly showers of My tender grace; now that the hour of its fruiting is come, strive that it may be protected, and be not consumed with the flame of desire and passion.” (Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words)

HAIKU

In my calendar
January 1 means less
Than March 21

WHAT IS YOUR DAILY ROAD BACK TO LOVE?

What is your daily road back to love?

Asked By: Alphaone 7 hours ago

Answer by pukirahe Dec 30th, 2011 at 5:57PM

My Prayer Book. Every day I open it
and follow the road signs:

By Thy Most Great Name, O Thou Lord of all nations! I have desired only what Thou didst desire, and love only what Thou dost love.
(Baha’i Prayers, p. 7)

O Thou in separation from Whom hearts and souls have melted, and by the fire of Whose love the whole world hath been set aflame!
(Baha’i Prayers, p. 8)

By Thy might! My trespasses have kept me back from drawing nigh unto Thee; and my sins have held me far from the court of Thy holiness. Thy love, O my Lord, hath enriched me, and separation from Thee hath destroyed me, and remoteness from Thee hath consumed me.
(Baha’i Prayers, p. 12)

And so on, with the other huge Book entitled:
“Prayers and Meditations” by Baha’u’llah.

Abdul-Baha says:
“This question is extremely subtle: consider it attentively. This is a rational proof which we are giving, so that the wise may weigh it in the balance of reason and justice. But if the human spirit will rejoice and be attracted to the Kingdom of God, if the inner sight becomes opened, and the spiritual hearing strengthened, and the spiritual feelings predominant, he will see the immortality of the spirit as clearly as he sees the sun, and the glad tidings and signs of God will encompass him. (Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 325)

HAIKU

Hell is not planet
Or star but it is all worlds
Without love of God

HAVE YOU HEARD OF “THE INTERNET? “

Have you guys ever heard of “the internet? “

Asked By: thisisevenlessfunnow 51 minutes ago

Answer by pukirahe Dec 30th, 2011 at 2:32PM

Still many friends of mine cannot correspond with me by email.
I really feel sad about this. Wishing that all people of my
grand-childern’s generation will use the computer as we use the pen,
or our ancestors used the plough. Through this means of communication
at the light speed, we will be able to discuss all problems, tackle them and solve them peacefully to establish a new world of love, prosperity and progress.
Yes, I thankfully adore the builders and users of the miraculous Internet.

Abdul-Baha:

“Everything is transformed. The existing government of France cannot adapt itself to the requirements of the middle ages. As everything evolves, so also does religion – as witness the doctrines that are losing their influence today. All religious rites and ceremonies, when adhered to, become the cause of destruction and struggle. Look at the war in the Balkans. Can you imagine anything more terrible? Men have arisen against their brothers and both armies think they act in accordance with principle. If each side would put into practice the true principles of its own religion, there could be no further strife.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 67)

HAIKU

Internet reflects
All problems of this world
For our treatment

Answer by pukirahe Dec 30th, 2011 at 4:57AM

Ugly may mean lack of physical beauty.
Ugly may mean beauty before corrupted sight.
Ugly may mean not suiting the taste of the beholder.
Ugly may mean beauty in disguise.
In reality, ugliness does not exist
in the wise and especially in the loving heart.

Abdul-Baha says:

“In reality all are members of one human family — children of one Heavenly Father. Humanity may be likened unto the vari-colored flowers of one garden. There is unity in diversity. Each sets off and enhances the other’s beauty.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 25)

HAIKU

Beauty exists truly
In all kind and living hearts
With love in practice

DO YOU SAY YOUR PRAYERS AT NIGHT?

Do you say your prayers before you go to sleep at night?

Asked By: Leesha1 1 hour ago

Answer by pukirahe Dec 30th, 2011 at 3:57AM

I say prayers three times daily: morning, noon, evening.
I find that God answers miraculously all my silent wishes
and bestows abundant blessings on all my acquaintants
who believe in Him.
Therefore, I also pray that people who don’t believe
will turn to Him and will consciously receive His boundless love.

Abdul-Baha says:

“My prayer and ardent supplication, at eventide and at dawn, is that these shining stars may soon shed their radiance upon the world, that their sacred countenances may be unveiled to mortal eyes, that the hosts of divine assistance may achieve their victory, and the billows of grace, rising from His oceans above, may flow upon all mankind. Pray ye also and supplicate unto Him that through the bountiful aid of the Ancient Beauty these souls may be unveiled to the eyes of the world.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 251)

HAIKU

I pray that all souls
Will receive blessings from God
With thankful prayers

WHERE IS GOD?

If there is God, then where is He? which religion or country He belong to?

Asked By: sarojini 9 hours ago

Good Question? (4)

Answer by pukirahe Dec 29th, 2011 at 5:21PM

God does not belong to any religion, country, planet…
but all belong to Him, because He is Creator of all worlds.
He is so manifest that all believe in Him,
and He is so mysterious that no one can describe Him.
Observe closely the beauty of God’s universal garden,
you will recognize His power as pre-eminent Gardener.

Baha’u’llah says:

“No one else besides Thee hath, at any time, been able to fathom Thy mystery, or befittingly to extol Thy greatness. Unsearchable and high above the praise of men wilt Thou remain for ever. There is none other God but Thee, the Inaccessible, the Omnipotent, the Omniscient, the Holy of Holies.” (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 5)

HAIKU

The most evident
And most mysterious God
Is with us always
