KNOWING HAPPINESS AND PRACTICING.
I know prayer is happiness, so I pray.
I know obeying God is happiness, so I obey.
I know eating is happiness, so I eat.
I know sleeping is happiness, so I sleep.
I know surfing the Internet is happiness, so I surf.
I know answering questions is happiness, so I answer questions.
I know learning is happiness, so I learn.
The more my knowledge expands, the more I become happy.
Yes, that is the secret: getting knowledge and practicing!

Abdul-Baha says:

If a man become touched with the divine spark, even though he be an outcast and oppressed, he will be happy and his happiness cannot die.

Whatever man undertakes he achieves some result, whether through statesmanship, commerce, agriculture, science, etc., he receives a compensation for his efforts. Consider what will be the result of those who work in the universal cause!

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 57)

WHY EVERYONE HERE SPEAKS ENGLISH?

Why does everyone on here speak English? I never see a different language

Asked By kamaci 18-21, F in Community

Because English has become a world language. If you know ten other languages, you may still need a translator; but with fluent English you can go through all cities on earth as well as on Internet.
Nationalism is also a barrier for the popular use of any other language. Each nation is making great effort to promote its language and shows discrimination against others. English already escapes this barrier, because it is no longer the language of the British Kingdom. It is now the language of America, India, Australia, New Zealand, and of many new branches of learning.
Being an Asian, but I use more English than French (my major at school) or my national language. Most of jobs I have gone through also require the use of English. That is why I have told my children and grandchildren to master English. And I also encourage other people to do the same.
Let us have English as the world language. This will be an important step to world peace.

Abdul-Baha says:
“The differences in language cause disunion between nations. There must be one universal language. The diversity in Faiths is also a cause of separation. The true foundation of all faiths must be established, the outer differences abolished. There must be a Oneness of Faith. To end all these differences is a very hard task. The whole world is sick, and needs the power of the Great Healer.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 59)

We need world language
To reach God’s divine knowledge
And world unity

IS IT A WASTE DOING NOTHING TODAY?

I did nothing all day today…was that a waste??

YES AND NO.

Yes, if you feel sad. If you still don’t know what to do tomorrow. If you keep on feeling tired and disappointed with this world.

And no if you are relaxing and rethinking for a brighter future. You will do physical exercise for a better health. You will make broader research to expand your knowledge. And you will embark on making active contribution to build world peace. This can be done with your happy smiles. Or be done with new proofs about the good will of the human race. And best with sharing good thoughts and good deeds for the progress of your relatives, your friends and other people you may contact directly or indirectly in the days to come.

I believe that thoughtful people like you will not waste your life.

Constant happiness will be yours.

Abdul-Baha says:

“War was the greatest calamity that could overtake the nations, because the people usually employed in agriculture, trades, commerce, and other useful arts, were taken away from their various occupations and turned into soldiers, so that there was great waste and loss, in addition to the destruction and carnage of war.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 70)

I like to give the best answer to your question.

I want you to be happy after reading this.

I want you to think of God and to think of the world. Because, I believe that you are my sister in the family of God like all other human beings.

I have discovered that, through Baha’u’llah, the Messenger of God for this Age of human maturity, love among mankind, world unity and world peace is inevitable. So, I want you and more people to think about this and to do something for this mutual purpose.

For decades I happily share this glad tidings and I have got hundreds of friends all over the world.

Wishing that you are an active peacemaker.

Shoghi Effendi says:

The convulsions of this transitional and most turbulent period in the annals of humanity are the essential prerequisites, and herald the inevitable approach, of that Age of Ages, “the time of the end,” in which the folly and tumult of strife that has, since the dawn of history, blackened the annals of mankind, will have been finally transmuted into the wisdom and the tranquility of an undisturbed, a universal, and lasting peace, in which the discord and separation of the children of men will have given way to the worldwide reconciliation, and the complete unification of the divers elements that constitute human society.

(Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come, p. 117)

Peace is assured

I don’t want to die.

However, an accident may take away my physical life at any time.

And I want to live eternally. This can be achieved by obedience to the Will of God. God bestows one soul to each human being and He teaches us how to keep it “pure, kindly and radiant” that it may be “a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.” (Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words)

For further details of this life eternal, we can find easily in the Sacred Scriptures of Baha’u’llah, available on the Internet.

Mature human beings will know how to enjoy this spiritual journey through innumerable worlds of God, instead of worrying about the inevitable destruction of our human bodies.

Wishing you success right in the heyday of your life.

Baha’u’llah says:

“These journeys have no visible ending in the world of time, but the severed wayfarer — if invisible confirmation descend upon him and the Guardian of the Cause assist him — may cross these seven stages in seven steps, nay rather in seven breaths, nay rather in a single breath, if God will and desire it. And this is of “His grace on such of His servants as He pleaseth.”

(Baha’u’llah, The Seven Valleys, p. 40)

Abdul-Baha says:

“Freedom is not a matter of place. It is a condition. I was thankful for the prison, and the lack of liberty was very pleasing to me, for those days were passed in the path of service, under the utmost difficulties and trials, bearing fruits and results.

“Unless one accepts dire vicissitudes, he will not attain.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 120)

God, Creator of all worlds.
Justice of God, foundation of all good for human beings.
Revelation of God, Divine Education for spiritual progress of all people.
Love of God, foundation of all existence in order and harmony.
Forgiveness of God, encouragement for immature souls.
I am thankful to God for causing all mature human beings, in this Day, to get in touch with Him, to understand Him and to obey. The best of all means is the Internet. Otherwise, no other means can bring this education to all parts of the world.
This is my certitude and satisfaction to live in this Age.
I am thankful to God and to the sharers of this information.

Baha’u’llah says:
The essence of these words is this: they that tread the path of faith, they that thirst for the wine of certitude, must cleanse themselves of all that is earthly — their ears from idle talk, their minds from vain imaginings, their hearts from worldly affections, their eyes from that which perisheth. They should put their trust in God, and, holding fast unto Him, follow in His way. Then will they be made worthy of the effulgent glories of the sun of divine knowledge and understanding,…
(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 3)
