Shatter Your Self

Thanks be to God, Who created Reality, Who is Present within all beings and all things, and in every point in space and time. The Presence of God permeates all of Reality – the Creative Force, keeping, maintaining, and changing it, continuously, forever.

Me: “Why am I here?”
Me: “to be …”
Me: “to be what?”
Me: “to be Holy”
Me: “Why?”
Me: “There is no greater way to be”
Me: “How can I be more holy?”
Me: “Shatter your self”
Me: “How do I do that?”
Me: “Say, ‘I am God'”
Me: “What if I say, ‘He is God’?”
Me: “That is great too”
Me: “When I say, ‘I am God’ I experience it as total and complete submission of my self to God – utter servitude, but it also feels more natural than ‘I am a servant of God,’ which is also true, but the former feels like a more true expression of what the latter claims, similar to saying, ‘I am you’ as contrasted with saying ‘I am a servant of you.’ Some would certainly prefer the latter.”

Thanks be to Bahá’u’lláh for repeatedly rekindling in me my faith in God and bringing me back from the fire of remoteness and loss. All Praise and Glory and Honor is yours, God, the Redeemer, the Infinite.

Me: “Don’t hesitate”
Me: “What do you mean?”
Me: “Don’t hesitate to say what you mean …”
Me: “There is within us an infinite potential at all times, the Creative Force, the Spirit of God, the mind, the soul, all combine into one potential for goodness. But it is only fulfilled in good works. Action is required.”
Me: “Say what you mean”
Me: “Before acting however, it is essential that clarity and coherence be reached. Unclear and confused action is worse than no action. In other words, the infinite potential must be charged up, cleansed, made clear, before it will transmute into good works. Meditation and prayer are good ways to polish the mirror of potential, as is physical work done in service of others. In other words, action in the most good way will lead to more good, which will lead to greater and greater ways to act.”

“Alláh’u’Abhá!”

The Oath of the Most High

Me: “Hearken to the Oath of the Most High:
Your voice is My Voice.
Use it with care.
Speak only the Truth.
Testify to My Greatness,
beyond any ability to describe, fathom, or comprehend.
Your face is My Face.
Keep it clean, pure, and cheerful!
You are My Ambassador.
Treat My creatures with care and justice.
Keep your self free of worldly intrigue, pursuits, passions, and vices.
Preoccupy your self with My Cause, My Kingdom, My Medicine.”
