Blame it on our thinking. It is our false thinking that causes us to be lazy, lonely, unhappy. Instead of working as servitude for a higher civilization on earth, we may falsely wish to make ourselves parasitic and outdated monarchs, and we shape our destiny in that wrong and miserable way.
I have met thousands of people who work restlessly, tirelessly, incessantly for educating children, empowering junior youth, enhancing the true knowledge of adults … and their happiness is beyond description. This is not an image in my dream, but an increasingly evident reality to all volunteers on the Path of Service.
I am thankful to God for bringing mankind to this Age of spiritual maturity. We will surely turn this world into Paradise.

Today I am most happy, for I see here a gathering of the servants of God. I see the white and colored people together. In the estimation of God there is no distinction of color; all are one in the color and beauty of servitude to Him. Color is not important; the heart is all-important. It matters not what the exterior may be if the heart be pure and white within. God does not behold differences of hue and complexion; He looks at the hearts.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 267)
True servants of God
Happily serve under tests
For His good pleasure
