In Baha’I Faith we are advised to be disconnected from those who officially announce that they have broken their covenant with God. But there are people around us who unofficially break their covenant with God every day thinking that since they have not announced it so it is ok!! Then I read the following Writings from Abdu’l-Baha the Son of Baha’u’llah the Founder of Baha’I Faith that how the sound and/or motions of every creating things ,no matter if they have souls or not, will affect our souls.
And now I know the ‘wisdom’ of this law of ‘being disconnected’!!!
In the book of Some Answered Questions in respond to the questions about the influence of the stars upon human soul He answered:
“ …..with regard to the spiritual influence of stars, though this influence of stars in the human world may appear strange, still, if you reflect deeply upon this subject, you will not be so much surprised at it. ……..But I mean that this limitless universe is like the human body, all the members of which are connected and linked with one another with the greatest strength. How much organs, the members and the parts of the body of man are intermingled and connected for mutual aid and help, and how much they influence one another ! In the same way, the parts of this infinite universe have their members and elements connected with one another, and influence one another spiritually and materially. ……For those who deny spiritual influence upon material things we mention this brief example: wonderful sounds and tones, melodies and charming voices, are accidents which affect the air- and by these vibrations the nerves of the tympanum of the ear are affected, and hearing results. Now reflect that the vibration of the air, which is an accident of no importance, attracts and exhilarates the spirit of man and has great effect upon him: it makes him weep or laugh; perhaps it will influence him to such a degree that he will throw himself into danger. Therefore, see the connection which exists between the spirit of man and the atmospheric vibration, so that the movement of the air becomes the cause of transporting him from one state to another, and of entirely overpowering him; it will deprive him of patience and tranquility. Consider how strange this is, for nothing comes forth from the singer which enters into the listener; nevertheless, a great spiritual effect is produced. Therefore, surely so great a connection between beings must have spiritual effect and influence. “
A reflection: so if one solid star in such a distance can affect my heart and /or soul, what will happened if I hear a sound and /or receive the vibrations of one human being’s voice , who has no love for others except himself and has broken his covenant with God so many times?
We know that every motion and/or voices are constantly creating waves to reach our ears and /or hearts that we may become happy and/ or sad and these emotions stays with us for few day and/ or months until it goes away by prayer and /or connecting to the Higher Power.
So the voice of those who break their covenant with God, unofficially, and consequently with His creation might be carrying the essence of their heart even with one ‘Hello’!!! . So if you don’t want to be suffered from these unseen sicknesses escape from their side and even if your earthy belongings are with them forget about it since your souls are priceless and when they ‘your souls’ are safe and living in poverty they are ruling a ‘kingdom’, your heart’s kingdom !!
