Harmful.
Beauty is not in the eyes of beholders,
especially inner beauty.
Such competions cause too much waste
of time, money and labor. Moreover it gives
too much stress on physical attraction, which
is not the true esteem of human beings.
Such efforts should be directed to education
that will create builders of a richer, more peaceful,
more beautiful world.
No beauty queens can be compared to an
educated mother who knows how to educate
her children.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Arise! Put forth a supreme effort, secure some new and heavenly attraction – that this Europe may be set in motion, for it is lamentable that it should be deprived of the heavenly wisdom; lamentable that it knows nothing of the heavenly rays; that is has not the health of the Holy Spirit; that a being of such great beauty should have no soul; that so exquisite a flower should have no scent; that so magnificent a structure should have no light. Do not remain inactive for one moment, perchance you may shed light in this darkness.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 129)

Life is not such a simple calculation.
Life is a living process of a thinking
being concerning meaning, purpose,
value, reality, realization…
A legal millionaire is not the purpose
of a true human being.
Imprisonment in exchange for money
is not an ideal for a rational being.
The true purpose of man’s life is to
develop human perfections such as
virtue, wisdom, enlightenment…to
contribute to world civilization and
attainment of eternal live.

WHO HAS INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST?

God.
This may sound funny, but it is reality.
I only see the meaning of life and go
through long and hard years with happiness,
only because of my trust in God.
The more I read the words of God in the Holy Books,
the more I desire to live and to share His love to
other people, friends, siblings, strangers…
Wishing that more people will enter this divine
education to see their close relationship with
God and to serve mankind as He commands.
There is no influence better to man than the influence
of God’s love.

Baha’u’llah says:

 

“1. O YE PEOPLE THAT HAVE MINDS TO KNOW AND EARS TO HEAR!

The first call of the Beloved is this: O mystic nightingale! Abide not but in the rose-garden of the spirit. O messenger of the Solomon of love! Seek thou no shelter except in the Sheba of the well-beloved, and O immortal phoenix! dwell not save on the mount of faithfulness. Therein is thy habitation, if on the wings of thy soul thou soarest to the realm of the infinite and seekest to attain thy goal.”

EXPLAIN PERFECT MEN OR WOMEN?

Explain the perfect man or women for u

Asked By: Miesha777 (13-15, F) 1 hour ago

There are no perfect men or perfect women on earth.
We can only try to become better by developing the
names and attributes of God in us, such as love,
generosity, truthfulness….
We may become worse by not working for the
development of these qualities.
And the relative conclusion about a good or bad
person can be made only at her/his death.
I marriage, we don’t expect to live our whole life
with a perfect partner. We can only support one another
to make progress through free, frank and compassionate
consultation. We love and respect one another mutually
through patience, tolerance, understanding.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Any soul that enters the kingdom of Baha’u’llah will enjoy an eternal communion with God. It is my hope that each of you may enter this kingdom. May you become thirsty for the water of reality. May you become hungry for the bread of the kingdom; for as His Holiness the Christ said, “He that drinketh the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” This means the apprehension of the ideals of the human world and of the heavenly realm. Day by day may you receive these concepts; day by day may you inherit this new state of consciousness till you become immersed in the sea of divine light.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 98)

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS SOCIETY?

What the hell is wrong with this society?

Good Question? (4)

Posted by pukirahe Oct 29th, 2012 at 9:22PM

There is no problem with society.
Problem is with my ignorance.
By my ignorance, I don’t know how to accept
the world as it is.
By my ignorance I don’t know how to make myself happy.
By my ignorance I leave behind a generation of
uneducated and suffering children.
The way out is quite clear: education for myself
and education for all kids.
Physical, human and divine education will give
knowledge for building a better and much better world.
Internet today can be used for this purpose.
Send up, share, promote good thoughts and
encourage positive inventions and discoveries.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “He Who is your Lord, the All-Merciful, cherisheth in His heart the desire of beholding the entire human race as one soul and one body. Haste ye to win your share of God’s good grace and mercy in this Day that eclipseth all other created Days. How great the felicity that awaiteth the man that forsaketh all he hath in a desire to obtain the things of God! Such a man, We testify, is among God’s blessed ones.” (Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts)

Baha’u’llah says:

 “By the glory of Thy might, O Thou my Well-Beloved! To have sacrificed my life for the Manifestations  of Thy Self, to have offered up my soul in the path of the Revealers of Thy wondrous Beauty, is to have sacrificed my spirit for Thy Spirit, my being for Thy Being, my glory for Thy glory. It is as if I had offered up all these things for Thy sake, and for the sake of Thy loved ones.”

WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS REAL?

Do you know what’s right and what’s real?

Asked By: plungesponge (26-30, M) 24 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 26th, 2012 at 4:19AM

God is real, obedience to Him is right.
All things relating to God are real;
all thoughts, words, deeds in obedience to
Him are right.
The existence of God is revealed and symbolized
by His Divine Messengers.
The obedience to God is taught in the Holy Books.
Today, with the Internet, we have all the Holy Books
at our fingertips for learning and verification.
If I say God does not exist and I can act according to
my own will, everyone will clearly see that my statement

is false and wrong.
So, from now on, we all have the simple balance
to measure all things. Yes, truth is simple, only
application is complicated. Because, our beliefs
and argumnets are diverse.
