People corrupt power.
Powers of light, air, water … beautify our life.
Then our mental power turns them into weapons and causing destruction to our own world.
However, human power will finally surrender under the perfect power of God. Through divine education, we will know how to master our negative thoughts and using all natural and human powers for the betterment of our world.
We have done so many things wrong thoughout history, but the result is that we are reaching a higher and higher civilization on earth.
We move from the speed of horse to the speed of light.
We build from small family to global country.
We roam from the surface of earth to farther and farther worlds.
On appearance we may shiver at the earthquake that kills thousands of human bodies; but, spiritually each soul will reach immeasurable height of the blissful realms under God.
That is why the Prophets of God, such as Buddha, Christ and Baha’u’lah… are happy in all circumstances.
Divine education makes all things new and good again.
New Addition For This Post
It is evident that man is in need of divine education and inspiration; that the spirit and bounties of God are essential to his development. That is to say, the teachings of Christ and the Prophets are necessary for his education and guidance. Why? Because They are the divine Gardeners Who till the earth of human hearts and minds. They educate man, uproot the weeds, burn the thorns and remodel the waste places into gardens and orchards where fruitful trees grow.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Foundations of World Unity, p. 77)
For all man’s activities
With divine purpose
