Daily Reflection – 8 Qawl (Speech)

studio-background-hd-jpg-free-download-5It is the hope of ‘Abdu’l-Baha that those youthful souls in the schoolroom of the deeper knowledge will be tended by one who traineth them to love. May they all, throughout the reaches of the spirit, learn well of the hidden mysteries; so well that in the Kingdom of the All-Glorious, each one of them, even as a nightingale endowed with speech, will cry out the secrets of the Heavenly Realm, and like unto a longing lover pour forth his sore need and utter want of the Beloved.

— ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. [1978] 1982: 134

Daily Reflection – 13 Qudrat (Power)

moon-treeI have come here with this mission; that through your endeavors, through your heavenly morals, through your devoted efforts a perfect bond of unity and love may be established between the east and the west, so that the bestowals of God may descend upon all and that all may be seen to be the parts of the same tree, — the great tree of the human family. For mankind may be likened to the branches, leaves, blossoms and fruit of that tree.

The favors of God are unending, limitless. Infinite bounties have encompassed the world. We must emulate the bounties of God, and just as each one of them — the bounty of life for instance — surrounds and encompasses all, so likewise must we be connected and blended together until each part shall become the expression of the whole.  (– ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith, pp. 218 – 219)
