My thinking, saying, doing good, and nothing else.
Firstly, I must try to get the best meaning of good. Otherwise, how can I think, say and do things properly.
Then I find that obedience to God is good. This is an immense field of learning: God teaches us myriad aspects of our life.
Take the example of obedience to His commandment about loving our neighbor. Who is our neighbor and how to practice true love? In the time of our ancestors, neighbor may mean people in the locality. About one thousand years ago, all compatriots have become neighbors. Today, all human beings have become neighbors.
And perhaps, only selfless love is true love. So, how can I live more and more meaningfully by loving selflessly all mankind? This and other matters, I have to learn and apply daily, reconsider and modify daily, to attain the contentment of living as a son of God.
It seems that we are created to make a journey throughout innumerable worlds of God, without ending at any destination. So, I live and learn, then thankfully learn and live eternally.
Immortal children of God will be always happy with His Divine Will.
New Addition For This Post
I counsel you, in the end, not to overstep the bounds of God, nor to heed the ways and habits of men, for these can neither “fatten nor appease your hunger”. Fix, rather, your gaze upon the precepts of God. Whosoever desireth, let him accept this counsel as a path leading unto his Lord, and whosoever desireth, let him return to his own idle imaginings. My Lord, verily, is independent above all who are in the heavens and on the earth, and above all that they say and do.
(Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 234)
Doing Will of God
Boldly and moderately
That’s supreme meaning
