dreams, no problem

Day 17 #bahaiblogging

This talk of healthy eyes, visions of the future and the like (see Day 16) brought to the forefront of my mind a related topic: dreams. How is it related? Well, when we close our eyes and go to sleep, we can see things in our dreams. Sometimes it seems our minds somehow come up with answers to problems in our sleep. It seems to me that kind of vision is 'healthy,' do you agree? I know I am not a...

Day 16 #bahaiblogging 

Part One (morning)

I get one Bible quote a day from a lady right here in South Carolina. She has a daughter with my name. :D A week ago - on Wednesday/Justice - she texted this quote, from Matthew 6:22

"The light of the body is the eye, if therefore thy eye be...

Day 15 #bahaiblogging

One of Baha'u'llah's Hidden Words is a favorite of a friend of mine. Ever since she told me so, I've been pondering what it means. Here's the actual text...

"The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not...

Day 14 #bahaiblogging

Today I finished a book on time travel - All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai. The moral of the story is "there's no such thing as the life you're supposed to have." The hero of the novel, Tom Barron, learns this after traveling in time to live in three different 'worlds.'

At one extreme is a sleek and futuristic, but tamely decadent world, where energy is cheap an...

Determined to Care

Day 13 #bahaiblogging

Following on my thoughts about patience, I thought I would share once more a video blog I made in December 2014 on the virtues of determination and caring/compassion.

This piece contains the true story of Lua Getsinger, one of the pioneers of the Baha'i Faith in the USA. You can find out more about Lua Getsinger on S...

amaaaaazing grace, parable of lost sheep

Day 12 #bahaiblogging

Because I've blogged about sheep and several friends liked that, let's talk about one of the parables about sheep. In Matthew 18 (12-14) Jesus tells this parable:

"What do you think? If someone owns a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go look for the one t...

the big three / a writing prompt

Day 11 of #bahaiblogging

Last night I dreamed a writing prompt! First time ever doing that. A friend of mine, Mbala, was in the dream.

The prompt is to write a poem that includes three elements: mountain, bell, and blue.

The image of a mountain needs to be included in the poem (not necessarily the word, although it can be included).

prayer (and action)

Day 10 of #bahaiblogging

Prayer is a most important concept in religion, and something that has been written and written and written about. I felt I had to say something about prayer in this blog.

Prayer flows naturally from my previous post about 'Abdu'l-Baha. Portals to Freedom - the book that led me to not just believe in Baha'u'llah but to fall in love with the Cause of God...

patience and the wolf

Day 9 of #bahaiblogging

Patience is not
waiting for the night patrol
while the wolf takes off with your sheep

Patience is not
praying all night
that the sheep you let stray
will come back

Patience is not
faith in the wolf's promise
of the sheep's return

effort or luxury? which do you choose?

Day 8 of #bahaiblogging

I'm reading a science fiction novel titled "All Our Wrong Todays". In this novel and many similar ones I have read and enjoyed, the future is envisioned as one relatively free from the physical effort and struggles of human existence. The author imagines a number of gadgets - made possible due to an invention which produces energy very cheaply, in unlimited supply ...
