When the 'Covenant' breaks!!!!

Tuesday, April 29. 2008

What is the 'Covenant'?!

Covenant is a contract between God and His creation, each one to their own capacities, and when their capacities reaches to its maximum, like human being, this Covenant comes to an amazing and unbelieving end which is recognizing their own Creator.

And what would happen when this 'Covenant' breaks?

Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of Baha’i Faith, writes:

“The flames which His Divine Justice have kindled cleanse an unregenerate humanity, and fuse its discordant, its warring elements as no other agency can cleanse or fuse them. It is not only a retributory and destructive fire, but a disciplinary and creative process, whose aim is the salvation, through unification, of the entire planet. Mysteriously, slowly, and resistlessly God accomplishes His design, though the sight that meets our eyes in this day be the spectacle of a world hopelessly entangled in its own meshes, utterly careless of the Voice which, for a century, has been calling it to God….”

Don't you think that God has a 'Right' to clean up His universe when 'it' becomes dirty and unstable to live on ? Especially when He created , designed , cleaned and beautified His 'Universe' for all that they may know Him as their own capacities!!
We all clean our homes and/or our own hearts time to time!! Don't you?!!!

Railroads to Heaven!

The ture seeker!

There was a time when God thought of something and ‘Will’ was created and later on the creation started evolving unfolding until today that can recognize his/her own God. But to be ready for such a day the capacities were needed and capacities could not be given in such a short time . Capacities first is like a tiny small thing like a small sand that like a seed breaks and grows gradually until it becomes a big tree so the time was needed for such a bounty that human consciousness develop a capacity to understand , to feel and to recognize his/her own Creator and it took 150 billions years for such a task and God forbid if one wastes his /her time, a time that would never be replaced . That is all!

Abdu’l Baha writes about ‘space travel’:

I know verily, that the universal, never ending, eternal, bright and divine establishments are only the diffusing of the breaths of God, and the spreading of the instructions of God, and all that are beside these, though they be the reigning over all regions of the earth, or the construction of railroads from the earth to the heavens, or means of transportation with the rapidity of rising lightning from the globe of the earth to the globe of the sun, all are but mortal, perishing, demolishing and disadvantageous, in comparison with divine establishments.”

To Be!

Monday, April 28. 2008

True believers are those who are living on the ‘boarder-line’ of two worlds, ‘spiritual’ and ‘nature’ (self). They are balance- keepers! They are helping the Creator to protect our planet from its ‘self’ and/or ‘nature’, which is always changing evolving and unfolding in time and space and have an amazing power to pull down whatever enters into its atmosphere. Their job is to attract and regenerate the spiritual power through their prayers and deeds in order to be able for pulling up the ‘scale’ of human consciousness that the force of ‘nature’ and/or ‘self’ does not break this Mighty Scale and /or Covenant! You may always find them wondering around this ‘boarder- line’ circling, receiving spiritual knowledge and living as an ordinary human being. They have both worlds at the same time. They are being controlled by Higher power in one hand and in another they are controlling their own lower kingdoms ‘nature’ and/or ‘self’.
Although humble in front of His creation but they are not controlled by it. So they are keeping everything in order for us to live!

Blessing of God!

Sunday, April 27. 2008
Abdu’l- Baha explains how God sends His blessings to our hearts through His Messengers:

“The blessings of Baha’ullah are a shoreless sea, and even life everlasting is only a dewdrop therefrom. The waves of that sea are continually lapping against the hearts of the friends, and from those waves there come intimations of the spirit and ardent pulsings of the soul, until the heart giveth way, and willing or not, turneth humbly in prayer unto the Kingdom of the Lord . Wherefore do all ye can to disengage your inner selves, that ye may at every moment reflect new splendours from the Sun of Truth.”


Saturday, April 26. 2008
Ether is not tangible but when it is appearing and manifesting in a matter you can feel it, touch it and love it! So if one body can absorb this mighty substance he/she becomes one with ‘ether’ and no one can fight this 'intelligent reality' except those who become one with it!

I am bowing down in front of .....

Thursday, April 24. 2008

Two nights ago I had an unusual therapy session!
I was attending at a very high level and educational class regarding Evolution!
While I was in the class I became totally detached from my own ‘time-line’ and connecting to the ‘timeline’ of universe’ and its unfolding process from 150 billion years ago until now. I was detached from limited ‘time’ and ‘space’ of mine and my own nonsense problems connecting to unlimited ‘time’ and ‘space’ , when there was nothing existed as ‘time’ and ‘space’ and these ‘manmade’ names had no meaning at all and/or they didn’t matter at all.

It was such a refreshing and uplifting experience , since I didn’t feel my body and mental heaviness and my soul was expanding to the beginning of time. So I was pulled back to 2.5 millions years ago when human being appeared on the face of earth for the first time, thinking that how long God had spent His precious time to prepare this universe for welcoming His own image ‘mankind’ and that time might be nearly 149 billions years before the creation of mankind!
He was the Host!
He might had thought about it first and the 'Will' was created and then everything started evolving , unfolding and appearing.
I don't know I am just guessing that 's all, I am saying this since He gave whatever He had to His own image too like 'will'!

So since we don't know what had happened we might say He was preparing , creating sun ( light), moon (shadow) to carry out the sun’s beauties and its light to our nights and stars to wink, food (plants), beauty (flowers) and companion (animals) for His own image to come. And only God knows that how many Messengers He has sent us, time to time, telling us that how much He loves us too.

We (our kind) killed some of His Messengers and we again (our kind) have made Others to suffer!!
What a shame of such an act towards the Host’s Messengers!
What a preparation!! And what a thanksgiving!

So after class I became more humble in front of such a unique Host, standing in front of His vest universe looking at stars praising His creation, not knowing that how much efforts should had been taken that one day I live in this beauty of His ,even for such a short time comparing to 150 billions years of preparations!!

And then I thought to myself that I should bow down in front of such ‘Bounty’ and ‘Love’ to the point that there was no ‘raising head’ of mine veiling His beauty, thanking Him with His own Holy Words saying:

I call on Thee O Most Lauded, O Most Holy…

“ I yield Thee such thanks as can stir up all things to extol Thee, and to glorify Thine Essence, and can unloose the tongues of all beings to magnify the Sovereignty of Thy beauty. I yield Thee such thanks as can fill the heavens and the earth with the signs of Thy transcendent Essence, and assist all created things to enter the Tabernacle of Thy nearness and Thy presence. I yield Thee such thanks as can make every created thing to be a book that shall speak of Thee, and a scroll that shall unfold Thy praise. I yield Thee such thanks as can establish the Manifestations of Thy Sovereignty upon the throne of Thy governance and set up the Exponents of Thy glory upon the seat of Thy Divinity. I yield Thee such thanks as can make the corrupt tree to bring forth good fruit through the holy breaths of Thy favours and revive the bodies of all beings with the gentle winds of Thy transcendent grace. I yield Thee such thanks as can cause the signs of Thine exalted singleness to be sent down out of the heaven of Thy holy unity. I yield thee such thanks as can teach all things the realities of Thy knowledge and the essence of Thy wisdom, and will not withhold the wretched creatures from the doors of the mercy and Thy bountiful favour……”

I was a pilgrim and/or witness this morning!

Wednesday, April 23. 2008
I am living on top of lagoon, no where to go and You are my life -giver!

This morning something strange happened to me. It was a shocking moment in my entire life.
I was asking praying to God that if I could write something that no one had ever written and an amazing strong voice from inside of my heart said: Write down! I was shocked looking for a piece of paper I couldn’t find any; I knew for sure that I was not hallucinating. The voice was so strong! I took my diary and started writing. Whatever was said now is in my diary dated Apr 23/08. How ignorant was I that I wanted to write it down on a piece of paper, it should rather be written first on the tablet of my heart and then in my diary that one day my children read it.
So now I am sharing with you whatever was said without changing one word, they are exact words , I had never written like this before!
I wrote:

“There is a doorway to paradise and I have found it and I don’t let it be closed to my face again and I would leave everything behind and fly to the most paradise that God intended me to find Him immersing in His love and Grace, where no one, no unfaithful ones can hurt me and if they try they would hurt themselves instead of me, as they did.
So long! the people of this earthy plane that I have nothing to do with you and your desires. So long!”

And then I saw an amazing Spiritual Figure leaving me behind, His long white cloak was making light-waves in the atmosphere surrounding Him and I was a pilgrim and/or witness for a very short time!

Creation is ....

Monday, April 21. 2008

Someone asked Abdu’l- Baha about trails and unexpected troubles.

Abdu’l-Baha replied, ”Creation is interwoven in a natural law and divine order. Everything is interlinked. A link cannot be broken without its having something to do with that natural order."
And this might be the answer to so many questions when we ask ourselves why? why? And Why?

From ‘copper’ to ‘gold’ and/or from ‘self’ to ‘divine’!!!

Monday, April 21. 2008

From 'self' to 'divine'!

Tomorrow, the 21 of April, Baha’is from all over the world are celebrating the Day of Rezvan, which has been the beginning of Golden AGE, a beginning of an ‘Age’ and/or ‘Time’ that every one can reach to his/her own Golden ‘mine’ with the help of the Unique ‘Divine Energy’, Which has been deposited in Holy Writings. This amazing Divine Energy will be helping us to build a real ‘Golden Castle’ for ourselves , a castles which are going to be built with ‘splendor, shinny particles’ instead of cold heavy metals!

Rumi says:

‘A Great Wedding is being celebrated in the Golden Kingdom
Such feasting! Such joy!
Such splendor in every particle!

No need to inquire if your heart’s not on fire.

…..but down in the unlit places,
the poor didn’t even raise their eyes.
So messengers were sent
in every direction with invitations
numberless as stars.’

From 'copper' to 'gold'!

Baha’u’llah warned us of this useless and dangerous search for transmuting ‘copper’ to ‘gold’ before even humanity could accomplish it!

‘In a Tablet entitled Words of Paradise (written shortly before His passing in 1892), Baha’u’llah noted and called for world unity and peace, He declared:
“Strange and astonishing things exist in the earth but they are hidden from the minds and the understanding of men. These things are capable of changing the whole atmosphere of the earth and their contamination would prove lethal.”

This reference to ‘strange and astonishing things’ aptly describes the twin processes of fission and fusion by which we obtain nuclear energy. The reality of such a power was again affirmed in 1911 by Abdu’l-Baha:

“There is in existence a stupendous force, as yet, happily, undiscovered by man. Let us supplicate God, the Beloved, that this force be not discovered by science until spiritual civilization shall dominate the human mind. In the hands of men of lower material nature, this power would be able to destroy the whole earth.”………

Baha’u’llah, as far back as the early 1860s challenged this assumption. He wrote on several occasions that the alchemists’ age-old dream – that of changing copper into gold- is entirely possible*, although copper and gold both are elements. When this statement was cited by His detractors as proof of His ignorance, He wrote: “Consider the doubts which they …have instilled into the hearts of the people of this land. ‘Is it ever possible,’ they ask, ‘for copper to be transmuted into gold?’ Say, Yes, by my Lord, it is possible. Its secret, however, lieth hidden in Our Knowledge….That copper can be turned into gold is in itself sufficient proof that gold can, in like manner, be transmuted into copper…Every mineral can be made to acquire the density, form and substance of each and every other mineral.”
Elsewhere Baha’u’llah wrote that transmutation of elements would become a reality, and that its achievement would be one of the signs of the coming of age of the human race. He further prophesied that after its discovery a great calamity would threaten the world unless mankind came under the shelter of the Cause of God. …….Transmutation of elements was finally achieved, and its age-old secret unlocked, early in this century. But as Baha’ullah had foreseen – there was a catch: changing one element into another is associated with the release of nuclear energy. The two phenomena (transmutation of elements and nuclear energy) are twin aspects of a single process; they are flip sides of the same coin! ……..

The ancient alchemist’s dream, as He and He alone foresaw, represents not an unmixed blessing but a dangerous instrument. Used unwisely, it has brought mankind to the brink of nuclear holocaust.’

The above painting is taken form ONE SONG's book , a book combining of beautiful paintings with Rumi's poems. The above painting is describing the following poem saying :

"We're not afraid of God's blade or being chained, or losing our heads.
We're burning up quickly tasting a little hellfire as we go.
You cannot imagine how little it matters to us what people say."

Taken from The Challenge of Baha’u’llah’s book:

The Heart of the Atom:

The coming dawn of the Atomic Age was writ large in the prophecies of Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha.

Nuclear Terror

Prophecy 21: The development of nuclear weapons.

In a Tablet entitled Words of Paradise (written shortly before His passing in 1892), Baha’u’llah noted the rush by Western civilization to develop ever-more-deadly weapons of war. Explaining the urgency of His call for world unity and peace, He declared:

“Strange and astonishing things exist in the earth but they are hidden from the minds and the understanding of men. These things are capable of changing the whole atmosphere of the earth and their contamination would prove lethal.”

This reference to ‘strange and astonishing things’ aptly describes the twin processes of fission and fusion by which we obtain nuclear energy. The reality of such a power was again affirmed in 1911 by Abdu’l-Baha:

“There is in existence a stupendous force, as yet, happily, undiscovered by man. Let us supplicate God, the Beloved, that this force be not discovered by science until spiritual civilization shall dominate the human mind. In the hands of men of lower material nature, this power would be able to destroy the whole earth.”

Abdu’l-Baha spoke these portentous words to the Japanese ambassador to Spain, Viscount Arawaka, for whose country the warning carried grave implications.

An ironic coincidence? If so, it was not the only one.
In 1920 ‘Abdu’l Baha wrote to a group of young students in Tokyo: ‘In Japan the divine proclamation will be heard as a formidable explosion…’ (I am aware of no other explosion metaphor in the Baha’i writings.) A quarter of a century later, the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were vaporized in the first wartime use of atomic bombs. Today the world’s nuclear arsenals contain enough firepower not only to destroy humanity many times over but to alter climate and atmosphere so drastically as to render the planet uninhabitable.

And now the meaning of Evolution and some reflections from those who have special places in history for making huge differences for human advancements:

Evolution means:

1) a process of change in a certain direction: unfolding;
2) a process of continuous change from a lower, simpler or worse to a higher, more complex, or better state;
3) a process of gradual and relatively peaceful social, political, and economic advance;
4) a process in which the whole universe is a progress of interrelated phenomena

Charles Darwin, Evolutionary Biologist, says:
“I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of …chance.”

Max Planck, theoretical Physicist, says: “Whence come I, and whiter go I? That is the great unfathomable question….Science has no answer for it.”

Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist, says: “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind…The cosmic religious feeling is the strongest and noblest motive for scientific research.”

Sharon Begley, Science Journalist, says: “Physicists have stumbled on signs that the cosmos is custom-made for life and consciousness. It turns out that if the constants of nature- unchanging numbers like the strength of gravity, the charge of electron, and the mass of a proton were the tiniest bit different, then atoms would not hold together, stars would not burn, and life would never have made an appearance.”

John Polkinghorne, Physicist & Theologian, says: “When you realize that the laws of nature must be incredible finely tuned to produce the universe we see, that conspires to plant the idea that the universe did not just happen, but that there must be a purpose behind it….Our minds, which invent mathematics, conform to …the cosmos. We are somehow tuned in its truths.”

Stephen Hawking, Theoretical Physicist, says: “The odds against a universe like ours emerging out of something like the Big Bang are enormous. There are clearly religious implications.”

Freeman Dyson, Astrophysicist, says: “The more I examine the universe and the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known we were coming.”

John Haught, Evolutionary Theologian, says: “Much as a loving parent lets a child be, and become, freely and without interference, so does God let creation make itself”

Rupert Sheldrake, Biological Field Theorist, says: “ I take the view that the creation ultimately depends on some non-physical or trans-physical reality, spiritual in nature.”

David Bohm, Theoretical Physicist, says: “The question is whether matter is rather crude and mechanical, or whether it gets more and more subtle and becomes indistinguishable from what people have called ‘mind’.”

And Abdu’l-Baha continues:

“….At the best, man spends four-score years and ten in this world—a short time indeed!

Does a man cease to exist when he leaves the body? If his life comes to an end, then all the previous evolution is useless, all has been for nothing! Can one imagine that Creation has no greater aim than this?

The soul is eternal, immortal.

Materialists say, ‘Where is the soul? What is it? We cannot see it, neither can we touch it.’

This is how we must answer them: However much the mineral may progress, it cannot comprehend the vegetable world. Now, that lack of comprehension does not prove the non-existence of the plant!
To however great a degree the plant may have evolved, it is unable to understand the animal world; this ignorance is no proof that the animal does not exist!

The animal, be he never so highly developed, cannot imagine the intelligence of man, neither can he realize the nature of his soul. But, again, this does not prove that man is without intellect, or without soul. It only demonstrates this, that one form of existence is incapable of comprehending a form superior to itself.

This flower may be unconscious of such a being as man, but the fact of its ignorance does not prevent the existence of humanity.

In the same way, if materialists do not believe in the existence of the soul, their unbelief does not prove that there is no such realm as the world of spirit. The very existence of man’s intelligence proves his immortality; moreover, darkness proves the presence of light, for without light there would be no shadow. Poverty proves the existence of riches, for, without riches, how could we measure poverty?
Ignorance proves that knowledge exists, for without knowledge how could there be ignorance?
Therefore the idea of mortality presupposes the existence of immortality—for if there were no Life Eternal, there would be no way of measuring the life of this world!

If the spirit were not immortal, how could the Manifestations of God endure such terrible trials? …………….It is only a man without intelligence who, after considering these things, can imagine that the great scheme of creation should suddenly cease to progress, that evolution should come to such an inadequate end!
The inability of the materialistic mind to grasp the idea of the Life Eternal is no proof of the non-existence of that life.
The comprehension of that other life depends on our spiritual birth!” The End.

Your wish for me and mine for myself!!!

Tuesday, April 15. 2008

Today when I saw the above painting the following words came to my heart. It was so sadden! I am not a poet but I wrote what I saw in this beautiful silent –talking painting. I, my soul, was standing in front of this beautiful mirror, painting, talking to my God:

I am a hard stone You are the life-giving water,
You are the fire burning inside my being but I am the veil covering it,
You are the force and the cause of breaking this hard rock, matter, of my being that one day I bring my head out of this lifeless rock like a flower reaching out to the invisible realities that You have destined for me to touch and smell and become a shiny brilliant stone among all the stones in this vest universe,
You have wanted this density for me and I am so busy working living in the atoms of this rock, wasting Your life-giving water and the fire of Your love which You have given me to grow out of this hard , dark and ugly shape of matter!
You want me to live in this an amazing beauty of Yours and I am so busy with other stones!
What a difference between Your wish for me and mine for myself!!
So forgive me for such a waste, depriving myself from such a bounty and being blinded from seeing such a beauty!

What become of our ‘atmospheres’ when we die?!

Monday, April 14. 2008

Every single body and/or matter, which is alive, has an atmosphere of its own. This atmosphere, which is surrounding the body and /or matter, has its own identity connecting to the stream of knowledge, ether, and God knows what kinds of substances and magnetic – fields. Its own powerful magnetic field will be generating the energies of love, hate, anger and/or the conformations form Real above and so on….. .
So by every heartthrob and thought this atmosphere will be expanded and/or contracted effecting other atmospheres, which are surrounding the entire creation.
So every intention, act and deed is like a dropping a tiny stone into this vest invisible ocean (Atmosphere) making limitless imperishable waves, which they will be following us like a long puckered lightened and/or fiery skirts throughout the eternity!!!

my worlds!

Tonight we take a break from reading His Holy words to reflect on different matter ‘Maya’ for a change!

Few years back I was fascinated by the subject of ‘Maya’ and I was reading everything which was somehow was related to this name. I read that everything in this world of matters and/or physical world is called ‘maya’ and those belonged to the invisible world and beyond this world is called ‘Maya’ again with capital ‘M’! So I made a chart for myself and my own two worlds knowing that there was a vest space and/or worlds between these two and I should found them as much as possible before I pass to the invisible world completely. I lost my chart and/or I might be lost in the worlds between these two worlds when today I have found my chart again.
I want to share this chart with you ,knowing by now, that the force behind climbing from the position of standing in front of the mirror of Invisible world (Maya), towards the Source is nothing else but the pressures , pain and sufferings caused by those who are appointed to do this ‘dirty’ but in reality ‘fantastic’ job of pushing the matters and the souls to go against the power of attraction, which keeps the atoms of their physical bodies together, to reach out to the invisible world and coming back with their hands full of jewels and pearls of wisdom sharing them with all the people, advancing the human’s souls and preparing the world for a new civilization to come. So God bless those, who have nothing to do in this world except pushing others to reach their ultimate capacities for a ‘New World Order’ to come, an order Which is going to be built upon the pillars of humans’ souls not their ‘matters’!!!

The existence of soul!

On November 10th, 1921 in Paris

“Absolute repose does not exist in nature. All things either make progress or lose ground. Everything moves forward or backward, nothing is without motion. From his birth, a man progresses physically until he reaches maturity, then, having arrived at the prime of his life, he begins to decline, the strength and powers of his body decrease, and he gradually arrives at he hour of death. Likewise a plant progresses from the seed to maturity, then its life begins to lessen until it fades and ides. A bird soars to a certain height and having reached the highest possible point in its flight, begins its descent to earth.

Thus it is evident that movement is essential to all existence. All material things progress to a certain point, then begin to decline. This is the law which governs the whole physical creation.

Now let us consider the soul. We have seen that movement is essential to existence; nothing that has life is without motion. All creation, whether of the mineral, vegetable or animal kingdom, is compelled to obey the law of motion; it must either ascend or descend. But with human soul, there is no decline. Its only movement towards perfection; growth and progress alone constitute the motion of the soul……………..

The whole physical creation is perishable. These material bodies are composed of atoms; when these atoms begin to separate decomposition sets in, then comes what we call death. This composition of atoms, which constitutes the body or mortal element of any created being, is temporary. When the power of attraction, which holds these atoms together, is withdrawn, the body, as such, ceases to exist.

With the soul it is different. The soul is not a combination of elements, it is not composed of many atoms, it is of one indivisible substance and therefore eternal. It is entirely out of the order of the physical creation; it is immortal!
Scientific philosophy has demonstrated that a simple element (‘simple’ meaning ‘not compose’) is indestructible, eternal. The soul, not being a composition of elements, is, in character, as a simple element, and therefore cannot cease to exist.

The soul, being of that one indivisible substance, can suffer neither disintegration nor destruction, therefore there is no reason for its coming to an end. All things living show signs of their existence, and it follows that these signs could not of themselves exist if that which they express or to which they testify had no being. A thing which does not exist, can, of course, give no sign of its existence. The manifold signs of the existence of the spirit are for ever before us.
The traces of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the influence of His Divine Teaching, is present with us today, and is everlasting.

A non-existent thing, it is agreed, cannot be seen by signs. In order to write a man must exist- one who does not exist cannot write. Writing is, in itself, a sign of the writer’s soul and intelligence. The Sacred Writings (with ever the same Teaching) prove the continuity of the spirit.
Consider the aim of creation: is it possible that all is created to evolve and develop through countless ages with this small goal in view-- a few years of a man’s life on earth? Is it not unthinkable that this should be the final aim of existence?

The mineral evolves till it is absorbed in the life of the plant, the plant progresses till finally it loses its life in that of the animal; the animal, in its turn, forming part of the food of man, is absorbed into human life.

Thus, man is shown to be the sum of all creation, the superior of all created beings, the goal to which countless ages of existence have progressed.

At the best, man spends four-score years and ten in this world-- a short time indeed!" continue ...
