With my book, or rather books!

With the Books of God. This sounds strange, but it is the most powerful reality.
Gandhi says if you want to change the world, change yourself.
Christ says if you want to lead, follow.
Buddha says to conquer oneself is harder than to conquer the world….
All words of power and wisdom are recorded in the Books of God: the Bible, the Quran, the Kitab-i-Iqan. He who changes himself based on these words of wisdom will change the world.
And the world has been changed to be highly civilized as we witness today, due to learning and implementing of learners in former times.
Buddhist civilization, Christian civilization, Islamic civilization … are eloquent proofs of human progress on earth.
My daily work now is to learn, apply and share these divine words of wisdom.
New Addition For This Post
“Arts, crafts and sciences uplift the world of being, and are conducive to its exaltation. Knowledge is as wings to man’s life, and a ladder for his ascent. Its acquisition is incumbent upon everyone. The knowledge of such sciences, however, should be acquired as can profit the peoples of the earth, and not those which begin with words and end with words. Great indeed is the claim of scientists and craftsmen on the peoples of the world. Unto this beareth witness the Mother Book in this conspicuous station.”
(Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 26)
