Musings

“Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its  secrets, and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths. Take heed that ye do not vacillate in your determination to embrace the truth of this Cause—a Cause through which the potentialities of the might of God have been revealed, and His sovereignty established. With faces beaming with joy, hasten ye unto Him. This is the changeless Faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future. Let him that seeketh, attain it; and as to him that hath refused to seek it—verily, God is Self-Sufficient, above any need of His creatures.” (“A Synopsis and Codification of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, the Most Holy Book of
Bahá’u’lláh”, 1st ed. (Haifa: Bahá’í World Centre, 1973), pp. 27–28)

Musing is a period of thought; of pondering, or reflection, meditation.  I contemplate often while reading or just after.  These reflections often lead me to more questions and meanderings. Want to share your musings? Click here for simple to follow instructions!

“Were any man to ponder in his heart that which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed
and to taste of its sweetness, he would, of a certainty, find himself emptied and delivered from
his own desires, and utterly subservient to the Will of the Almighty. Happy is the man that hath
attained so high a station, and hath not deprived himself of so bountiful a grace.”
(“Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh”, sec. 163, p. 343)
