I AM BOTH.
Simply, I am a confusing human being like all other people of all time.
Complicatedly, I am a mysterious soul next to all other mysterious souls.
Before learning, I think that I am just a body eating, sleeping and then dying and finally forgotten.
With some more schooling, I know that I am a mysterious spirit journeying through various worlds to understand the love of God before thankfully returning to Him to do further learning.
Now, I know that I know nothing, except receiving what God is pleased to bestow on me.
I am happy with this knowledge of nothingness and pray that other human beings will also enjoy this grace of God which is greater than all the things we consider as simple or complicated.
I am thankful to God for creating us and exclusively favoring us with this divine education.
New Addition For This Post
“It is evident therefore 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. The wisdom and purpose of their training is that man must pass from degree to degree of progressive unfoldment until perfection is attained.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Foundations of World Unity, p. 77)
Man knows not himself
Without true education
From His Creator
