Love, Peace, Progress ….
People suffer when they are starving, but they are not happy when they have sufficient food. They cannot be content with existing simply like all other creatures. They seek for entertainment and they become boring. They seek for more wealth to buy more desiring things and they also become dissatisfied. They seek for freedom, fame, power … and they also feel the emptiness, the monotony, and the ridicule of earthly life! At the topmost, many emperors seek vainly for immortality!
Avoiding such meaningless pursuit, I think of conducting a life of love – selfless love, world peace and progress… And I happily discover that the path to spiritual progress will never end. New horizons are opening on the world of creation as well as on the world of revelation. And I am more happy to know that God is revealing again this eternal purpose to the whole human race. Baha’u’llah, the Messenger of God for this New Cycle, says: “All men have been created to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization.” (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 214)

Baha’u’llah also says:
“.3. O FRIEND! In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love, and from the nightingale of affection and desire loosen not thy hold. Treasure the companionship of the righteous and eschew all fellowship with the ungodly.”
(Baha’u’llah, The Persian Hidden Words)
