‎”Know thou that every fixed star hath its own planets, and every planet its own creatures, whose number no man can compute.”
“Verily I say, the creation of God embraceth worlds besides this world, and creatures apart from these creatures.” “Bahá’u’lláh made the statements above, bringing concepts that are designed to unite the planet and bring humanity to maturity. He explained that the essence of religion progresses through the ages. The basic truths are always the same, but the definition of who is our neighbour constantly expands. Initially perhaps it was someone from the same family, then village, tribe and nation. Now it is becoming increasingly obvious that “the earth is but one country and mankind its citizens”…. and maybe it’s time to expand our vision to even larger parameters, beyond our planet.
He also explained that
“Love is the most great law that ruleth this mighty and heavenly cycle, the unique power that bindeth together the diverse elements of this material world, the supreme magnetic force that directeth the movements of the spheres in the celestial realms. Love revealeth with unfailing and limitless power the mysteries latent in the universe.”
This is my attempt to build a bridge between Baha’is and our changing neighborhood!
In love & light.
