Good Question? (13)

Answer by pukirahe Apr 4th, 2012 at 6:34AM

Praying for Almighty God to guide you to His Path.
Believing that He never rejects your wish.
Starting to read a Holy Book with teachings from God.
Meditating on one verse.
Translating its meanings into practice.
Once you obtain the first pleasing result,
then you will be able to go further more easily
and more successfully.
If you want, I will give you an example.

Baha’u’llah says:

“I shall remember your spiritual susceptibilities and pray that they may be directed toward the highest, that your love for your Lord and your attraction toward Him may increase day unto day. I hope that this revered society may become conducive to the illumination of the city of Paris, in order that the blind may receive sight; the deaf hearing; the dumb the power of speech; and that into these dead bodies the spirit of life may be infused. Then this Paris will become another Paris and this world another world.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 172)

HAIKU

Love nearness to God
Is powerful with Prophets
Joining our prayers

the signs of Thine Existence to people’s
eye of the spirit.

Abdul-Baha says:

“Every cherished effort must extend its powers to other souls. Is there anything more cherished than the mind of man? We must expend this faculty in the cause of human union, for we are the children of one father. A delicate spiritual power is ever exercising an influence over the hearts and minds of men. Why should we abandon the holy power which binds us together and cleave to the barbarous traditions which keep us apart?” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 182)

HAIKU

The eye of the mind
Knows horizons are not real
But love of God is

Baha’u’llah says:

“Ye, however, have broken the Covenant of God, forgotten His Testament, and at last turned away from Him Whose appearance hath solaced the eyes of every true believer in the Divine Unity. Lift up the veils and coverings that obscure your vision, and consider the testimonies of the Prophets and Messengers, that haply ye may recognize the Cause of God in these days when the Promised One hath come invested with a mighty sovereignty.”
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 50)

Light of Unity
Shines on all created things
Making them all one

WHAT IS RELIGION?

What is religion?

Answer by pukirahe Apr 4th, 2012 at 2:32AM

Religion is sublime teachings brought down by
the Messengers of God from Age to Age to show
the way back to God through higher and higher civilization.
This definition is applied for Hiduism, Judaism, Baha’i Faith…..
Bearers of religious names have nothing to do with religion,
but true believers are those who translate the teaching into reality.

Baha’u’llah says:

“Religion is verily the chief instrument for the establishment of order in the world and of tranquillity amongst its peoples. The weakening of the pillars of religion hath strengthened the foolish and emboldened them and made them more arrogant. Verily I say: The greater the decline of religion, the more grievous the waywardness of the ungodly. This cannot but lead in the end to chaos and confusion. Hear Me, O men of insight, and be warned, ye who are endued with discernment!” (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 63)

HAIKU

Religion is school
Taught by Messengers of God
To human beings

What? (Vietnamese: Cái gì?)
Please                (Xin vui lòng)
Sorry                             (Xin lỗi)
Thank you.                (Cảm ơn)

Why these five words?
Because they are the golden key for me
to go through all cultures.
With my travelling experience, I find that
people everywhere love to say, and especially
to hear these words.
The better way is to learn these five words
in the country we visit and use them along
with a dictionary.
When I visited Bolivia, I showed the taxi driver
the written address of my hotel. He is thankful
with some tip and with my saying thank you.
In the hotel I point at a chair, then say please
to any person, she would sit down and starts
the conversation.
In the street, I could query about anything by
using the word sorry. If I wanted to know
about a thing, I just point to it and ask
what?
I could happily go through Thailand, Israel, Iran….
without knowing any words of their languages.

Abdul-Baha says:
“The people of universal mind recognize in this plan the symbol of assurance that we are at the beginning of the golden age that prophets and poets have depicted in song and fable. The people who have come in contact with this spirit of the age hold that the time has come when the highest concepts of man are to be realized and become part and parcel of every nation’s fabric. With glowing faces these people tell of future ideals based on justice. They speak of international laws as yet untranslated into our language which are to govern the world after wars have ceased.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 12)

HAIKU

How very easy
Just start learning five words
To approach mankind

WHERE CAN MAN FIND GOD?

What is the worst place were you can find God?

Answer by pukirahe Apr 3rd, 2012 at 7:05PM

God is omnipresent and His Presence is Paradise.
No one can find God, we can see only His signs.
Even Moses could not see God, but could only
see the sign of the Burning Bush.
All imaginations about God are fake.
Human beings can only learn to see the signs
of God through the guidance of His Divine Messengers,
such as Moses, Buddha, Baha’u’llah….

“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” -Albert Eisenstein Can you say that about Satan? I mean a psychiatrist will called that a illusion and gave you medication or form a psychosis, or even paranoid?

Reply by pukirahe Apr 3rd, 2012 at 9:18PM

Satan is imaginary which no man can get knowledge about it. As for God, I have the Holy Books to learn and to get into coversation, understanding, agreement with faithfuls, scientists and any other rational beings.

Baha’u’llah says:

“Erelong shall We raise up, through the aid of Thy hand, other hands endued with power, with strength and might, and shall establish through them Our dominion over all that dwell in the realms of revelation and creation. Thus will the servants of God recognize the truth that there is none other God beside Me, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting. With these hands, moreover, We shall both bestow and withhold, though none can understand this save those who see with the eye of the spirit.” (Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 18)

HAIKU

For seeing the truth
Man must use eye of spirit
This requires learning

WHAT IS TRUTH?

What is truth? Is it something we can see or the unseen?

Asked By: jimflo88 45 minutes ago

Answer by pukirahe Apr 3rd, 2012 at 6:09PM
Year of Dragon, Day 72

Reality, its properties, its good functioning
and nobody can deny its existence, that is truth.

Atom is truth.
Molecule is truth.
Cell is truth.
Earth is truth.
Humanity is truth.
Religion is truth.
Planet is trtuh.
Sun is truth.
Universe is truth.
God is truth.

A trained mind can get into details of
these things, make affirmation about them
and conduct his life accordingly.
People who don’t develop their rational sense,
remain confused and exist in unpleasant darkness.
Yes, truth is not what I say,
but it is reality that each human being can
conceive through physical, human and
divine education.

Baha’u’llah says:

These are they who, in truth, were not enjoined to prostrate themselves before Adam. They have never turned away from the countenance of Thy Lord, and partake at every moment of the gifts and delights of holiness. Thus hath the Pen of the All-Merciful set forth the secrets of all things, be they of the past or of the future. Would that the world might understand! Erelong shall God make manifest this people upon the earth, and through them shall exalt His name, diffuse His signs, uphold His words, and proclaim His verses, in spite of those that have repudiated His truth, gainsaid His sovereignty, and cavilled at His signs.
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 14)

HAIKU

Truth a’nt visible
Reality to one mind
Phantom to other
