I am enjoying sweet music on Youtube.
I am sharing meaningful pictures on Facebook.
I am conversing with friends by answering questions right here.
I will keep on sitting happily like this before my computer until when I can no longer stand the drowsiness! And then I get a nap with more beautiful dreams.
I am thankful to God for providing me with the sufferings under feudalism, colonialism, war evacuation in my childhood and all the facilities of this modern day.
Wishing that mature people in this great Cycle will overcome global trials to build a more ideal world for generations to come.
Be happy and more hopeful.

Abdul-Baha says:
“Unless one accepts dire vicissitudes he will not attain. To me prison is freedom; troubles rest me; incarceration is an open court; death is life and to be despised is honor. Therefore, I was happy all that time in prison. When one is released from the prison of self, that is indeed freedom, for self is the greater prison. When this release takes place, one can never be imprisoned.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 21)

Left prison of self

DO YOU GIVE MONEY TO THE POOR?

Do you give money to the poor?
Asked By MyLifeJourney3 22-25, M in Community

No and never.
Giving alms is degrading man’s nobility and it is not the solution for poverty elimination and other socio-economic problems.
Poverty will only be eliminated by fundamentally spiritual solutions such as:
Restoring human dignity.
Providing more vocational and spiritual education.
Creating more jobs.
Reforming wealth distribution by legislation on tax, subsidy, insurance, social welfare, .
Sharing profits among employers and employees.
Encouraging voluntary sharing from wealthy people.
Nations seeking ways to end wars and building world peace and so on.
Giving alms is childish practice in antiquity. Now, the mature human race, especially the governors, should think about establishing peaceful, prosperous and progressive communities all over the world.

Abdul-Baha says:
Erelong the darkness will pass away entirely, and the regions of the East will become completely illumined; enmity, hatred, ignorance and bigotry will no longer remain; the satanic powers which destroy human equality and religious unity will be dethroned, and the nations will dwell in peace and harmony under the overspreading banner of the oneness of humanity. Therefore, we supplicate the Lord our God with sincere and contrite hearts, asking aid and assistance in the accomplishment of this mighty end: that the nations shall be unified in the Word of God; that war, enmity and hatred between races, religions, native lands and denominations shall disappear and be forever unknown; and that peoples and nations shall spiritually embrace each other in the indissoluble bond and power of the love of God.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 440)

WOULD YOU RISK YOUR LIFE TO SAVE PEOPLE?

Would you risk your life to save a thousand people?
Asked By cin8888 13-15, F in Community

I don’t know what you mean about saving.
In reality, no man can save the life of another man.
A person may die to voluntarily to prevent the explosion of a grenade to secure the physical existence of many people, but those people may soon die by many other reasons.
To me, real salvation is to give spiritual quickening to other souls, as done by Christ and His disciples through their martyrdom. Even this, still depending on positive response of the hearers. If the hearers don’t sincerely repent, they cannot be saved. Most people are not learning enough to distinguish the physical existence from the spiritual life; the physical is common to all creatures, while the spiritual is specifically for human beings. It is regretful that not many people are responding thankfully to the noble sacrifice of the Prophets, the saints and the martyrs!
I don’t risk my life to save other people, but I only try to live in accordance to the counsels of God, which are now available on the Internet.
Praying that true lovers of mankind will reach the truth and act accordingly.

Abdul-Baha says:
Certain religious teachers, think only of their creeds. They believe a holy war can conquer the world. They reason thus: “All the other religious teachers are in error and I am obliged to chastise them and show them their mistakes for their own salvation.”
The belief of the friends of God is quite different. They believe that one must affiliate with all, love all humanity and seek ever to better its condition. God is one, the true Shepherd of all creation. Let us be kind to every one in order to unify the world and spread affection abroad.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 97)

Yes.
I contributed ‘hearted’ answers to various questions on EP.
I got more learning from friends on Facebook.
I wrote new articles on WordPress.com.
The world appears more and more meaningful, more beautiful, more peaceful to me in each following day.
Because of these optimistic sentiments, I got up early every day to share my joyful feelings on Internet and bring your positive opinions into my daily life in my family, my neighborhood, my hopeful world, which is truly the good world that God favors to all human beings.
Praying God for awakening of more of His happy and thankful children.

ONE TOPIC FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

If there was only one topic you could talk about for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Education.
Physical, human and divine education.
People of all time, as human beings, need to adopt physical, human and divine education, in order to live usefully, happily and progressively. A life in ignorance is of no difference to death.
Physical education will equip man with skill to earn daily living.
Human education will equip man with ability to build higher and higher civilization on earth.
Divine education will enhance man’s insight to receive God bestowals for life eternal. This is the true purpose of God in the creation of man among all creatures.
Details for establishment of this complete education and its application are designed in the Sacred Scriptures of the Bab, Baha’u’llah and Abdul-Baha, which are available on the Internet for the mature human race in this Universal Cycle which will last no shorter than five thousand centuries.
Yes, this is the most important subject for me and for many generations to come.

Abdul-Baha says:
Now reflect that it is education that brings the East and the West under the authority of man; it is education that produces wonderful industries; it is education that spreads great sciences and arts; it is education that makes manifest new discoveries and institutions. If there were no educator, there would be no such things as comforts, civilization. or humanity. If a man be left alone in a wilderness where he sees none of his own kind, he will undoubtedly become a mere brute; it is then clear that an educator is needed.
But education is of three kinds: material, human and spiritual.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 7)

With education
God’s love manifests brightly
On all human minds

That is good, because only God should be the Object of man’s belief.
God alone can give us all what we need to live as His children. Only God understands us and only He can give us education and training to thankfully make progress in His innumerable worlds. He is the only Compassionate Father Who patiently forgives all our sins. Wishing that all individuals making investigation of truth independently for eternal reunion with their Heavenly Father.
Because of His boundless love, God creates all things known and unknown for our training, education and spiritual progress. Let us listen to His call and never deprive ourselves of this divine favor.
I am thankful to God for guiding you and me and other siblings of ours back to Him.

Abdul-Baha says:
“Men are fighting for the possession of the earth. They fight for that which becomes their graves, their cemeteries, their tombs.
In reality all are members of one human family — children of one Heavenly Father. Humanity may be likened unto the vari-colored flowers of one garden. There is unity in diversity. Each sets off and enhances the other’s beauty.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 25)

WHAT’S THE MOST COMMON FLAW IN PEOPLE?

What’s the most common flaw in people?
Asked By akaShaun 16-17, M in Community

Reply By Me

Ignorance.
We all don’t know who we are, from where and for what.
Because of this we are doing all things wrong and we have to collectively suffer the negative consequences.
And it is even worse when we falsely blame other people for this common flaw.
In reality, God created all human beings with perfection for us to represent Him as His spiritual children in the universe.
He caused the development of our intelligence by sending down, from age to age, His Messengers to act as Divine Educators.
Today, people who have entered His Divine Education, understand more and more about human abilities and about the purpose of God’s creation.
With the education of Baha’u’llah, God’s most recent Messenger in this age of human maturity, we are building unity of knowledge, of planning and of action, causing the planet to become one family of God in His boundless love.
More and more learners will share this education to all human beings, and all wise theories will become concrete reality.

Abdul-Baha says:
Among the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh is that religion is a mighty bulwark. If the edifice of religion shakes and totters, commotion and chaos will ensue and the order of things will be utterly upset, for in the world of mankind there are two safeguards that protect man from wrongdoing. One is the law which punishes the criminal; but the law prevents only the manifest crime and not the concealed sin; whereas the ideal safeguard, namely, the religion of God, prevents both the manifest and the concealed crime, trains man, educates morals, compels the adoption of virtues and is the all-inclusive power which guarantees the felicity of the world of mankind. But by religion is meant that which is ascertained by investigation and not that which is based on mere imitation, the foundation of divine religions and not human imitations.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Foundations of World Unity, p. 30)
