Working with love is useful.
Working without love is waste of time.
Love selflessly is useful.
Love for possessions is waste of time.
Usefulness for other people is good.
Usefulness for oneself is waste of time.
Serve other people in love of God is good.
Serve other people for popularity is waste of time.
Love God for the sake of God is good.
Love God for the reward of paradise is waste of time.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “But Thou hast glorified Me through My remembrance of Thee, hast exalted Me through My praise of Thee, hast graciously aided Me through the revelations of Thy oneness, and hast conferred upon Me a great honour through the effulgent splendours of Thine ancient eternity. To the fire Thou dost command, ‘Be thou a soothing balm unto My Servant’, and to the prison, ‘Be thou a seat of tender compassion to My Servant, as a token from My presence’. Yea, I swear by Thy glory; to Me the prison hath proved to be naught but the most delightful garden of Paradise and hath served as the noblest spot in the realm above.”

(The Bab, Selections from the Writings of the Bab, p. 184)

WHY WE ARE GIFTED WITH LIFE?

Why we are gifted with life?

Because life is the most precious
and most mysterious of all things.
Life is precious, because it growing, advancing
and reaching the highest physical and spiritual
summits all existence. See how large, how
intelligent, how intellectual is the inorganic Internet,
and we will continue to develop it in all aspect
and all directions. But it can never act against
our will.
Life is mysterious, because there are still other
properties and attributes that we don’t know.
We can never create it. And as long as we exist,
we can still make more interesting discoveries.
By His love, God creates us for us to know
and to enjoy His hidden treasuries.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Then our life will be revivified, we shall enjoy eternal existence, be refreshed with the breath of the Holy Spirit and become informed of the mysteries of creation. Then we shall be inspired to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity; we shall take a portion of the divine grace and become resplendent with the rays of the heavenly luminary; then the human race will mirror forth the attributes of the eternal kingdom and will move like a peaceful sea and each individual will appear as a wave. As we look upon the sea, we will comprehend it as the sea of God; as we look upon the waves, we will realize that they are the souls of humanity. The sun is one; all light is one; the rays are one; it shines on all.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 171)

LOVE COMES TO THOSE WHO WAIT?

Does true love really come to those who wait?

Asked By: Twilightangel29 (26-30, F) 35 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 21st, 2012 at 8:16AM

Love is not a thing like a material gift to be given or received.
People whom I love they don’t know; people who love
me I don’t know. I think that you don’t know that I love
you, and I don’t know that you love me.So love is a noble
sentiment that is given unnoticed.
Only God knows His love for us and our love for Him.
But we don’t know His love for us. If we are religious, we
believe; if we are not, we don’t believe and we never know.
Love among lovers are belief, not knowledge. So, in order
to be happy in love, we just love and do not expect to
receive anything as we imagine in our mind.
Wishing you happiness in true love from your heart.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Protect, moreover, O my Beloved, through Thy love for them and through the love they bear to Thee, this servant, who hath sacrificed his all for Thee, and expended whatsoever Thou hast given him in the path of Thy love and Thy good pleasure, and preserve him from all that Thou abhorrest, and from whatsoever may hinder him from entering into the Tabernacle of Thy holy sovereignty, and from attaining the seat of Thy transcendent oneness.”

BRINGING BACK THE HIPPIE MOVEMENT?

Who thinks we should bring back the hippie movement? And why

A good effect of that movement was its showing of burning
desire for peace, with efforts to break down all
prejudices, all formalities, all traditional restrictions.
But wishing or opposing is not positive enough to
cause radical change to the old society.
We need newer concept about life and more positive
measures for change. This must be done through education.
This may take time, but this is the best way in the history of man.
We can only attain high civilization under the education of
Buddha, of Christ, of Baha’u’llah.
The more we serve actively for this high ideal, the more
we will meet other people of good will in this field. Our world
is changing not in the name of a movement, but in the
quiet change of the human hearts.
All hearts love and want to serve the Cause of peace,
prosperity and progress.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Those efforts which create general interest are universal; their results are likewise universal for humanity has become interdependent. The international laws of to-day are of vast importance, for as international politics bring nations nearer to one another – and thus promote a bond of oneness which acts as a magnet to attract the divine confirmations – the results and benefits are limitless. Therefore, let us say that every universal cause is divine and every personal matter is human or limited.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 141)

COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH YOUR LIFE?

Have you ever felt completely satisfied with your life?

Asked By: artisticmuse (41-45, F) 13 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 8th, 2012 at 4:50PM

I am content, but not completely satisfied.
Content because I know that God’s creation is good;
not satisfied because I am not perfect; I must keep
on learning to make progress.
Life is not an addition of moments or events, but
it is an eternal process to come closer and closer
to the One True God.
This process composes the ups and downs, failures and
successes, gains and losses… that cause the development
of spiritual qualities besowed by God to each individual.
Therefore, each person has her/his own ways to live
and will be judged only by God.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Thou art He Who from everlasting was, through the potency of His might, supreme over all things, and, through the operation of His will, was able to ordain all things. Nothing whatsoever, whether in Thy heaven or on Thy earth, can frustrate Thy purpose. Have mercy, then, upon me, O my Lord, through Thy gracious providence and generosity, and incline mine ear to the sweet melodies of the birds that warble their praise of Thee, amidst the branches of the tree of Thy oneness.

Thou art the Great Giver, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Compassionate.”

POSITIVE EFFECT OF NEGATIVE SITUATION?

Name a positive side effect of a negative situation.

Asked By: Spann0r (26-30, M) 54 minutes ago

Specific examples are welcome.

All medals have their reverse faces.
Glory may become humility; then humility glory.
But rules also have exceptions.
Usually, optimism is better than pessimism.
With optimism, we would go an extra mile,
we andvance another step, we wait for one
more second, then things may change.
The more we look into the positive effects of
things, the better we will master our own life.
Examples about this reality are quite abundant
on the Internet as well as in real life. Interview
the champions at ParaOlympic Games, you will
see how optimism has changed miraculously their lives.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “This meeting of yours tonight is very different in character. It is a universal gathering; it is heavenly and divine in purpose because it serves the oneness of the world of humanity and promotes international peace. It is devoted to the solidarity and brotherhood of the human race, the spiritual welfare of mankind, unity of religious belief through knowledge of God and the reconciliation of religious teaching with the principles of science and reason. It promotes love and fraternity among all humankind, seeks to abolish and destroy barriers which separate the human family, proclaims the equality of man and woman, instills divine precepts and morals, illumines and quickens minds with heavenly perception, attracts the infinite bestowals of God, removes racial, national and religious prejudices and establishes the foundation of the heavenly Kingdom in the hearts of all nations and peoples.”

IGNORANT PEOPLE ARE ANNOYING?

We are all annoying, because we know nothing like them.
What is true, what is good, what is beautiful? We really dont know.
I answer questions up here, not to show that I know,
but to show that we know nothing, and we better observe
the rule of mutual love and mutual respect, to reach temporary
agreements for our daily life.
You are free to think, to say, to do anything which
you consider as true, good and beautiful. We let other
people living their way. Then we tolerantly agree to agree,
or to silently disagree, on anything in order that we
will have peace to think a little more deeply and to act
a little more civilized than yesterday.
Then, generations to come will contemplate a world full of
light in the night sky and feel proud about the inventions
of their ancesrors.
Then we will look dowm from heavens
to contemplate greater achievements of our descendants.
Isn’t that our joy? So, what is the use of all disputes,
conflicts and wars!

Abdul-Baha says:

 “A new religious principle is that prejudice and fanaticism — whether sectarian, denominational, patriotic or political — are destructive to the foundation of human solidarity; therefore, man should release himself from such bonds in order that the oneness of the world of humanity may become manifest.

Universal peace is assured by Bahá’u’lláh as a fundamental accomplishment of the religion of God — that peace shall prevail among nations, governments and peoples, among religions, races and all conditions of mankind. This is one of the special characteristics of the Word of God revealed in this Manifestation.”
