Jamál, 09 Masá’il (Questions), 178 B.E.


Seven weeks after I photographed a bloom on one of the mother-in-law’s tongue plants my sister “donated” to me, it is still there. Curious if it will make it to the new year!


Tweaked the “About” page. I hope this doesn’t become a habit!

Restarted my mid-2012 MacBook Pro I last used two years ago before replacing it with a MacBook Air. Discovered files on it that did not transfer to iCloud and the Air. Spent the afternoon updating the OS to 10.15.7 so I can do a final backup. I’m not too sure how I’ll navigate next steps, but the idea is to first get all the files copied to iCloud so I can access them with any device. Then I’ll decide what to do with the the Pro. Amazingly, it still works — much slower in comparison, but definitely functional.

“A race of men,” is His written promise, “incomparable in character, shall be raised up which, with the feet of detachment, will tread under all who are in heaven and on earth, and will cast the sleeve of holiness over all that hath been created from water and clay.” 1 2

“Is not the object of every Revelation to effect a transformation in the whole character of mankind, a transformation that shall manifest itself, both outwardly and inwardly, that shall affect both its inner life and external conditions? For if the character of mankind be not changed, the futility of God’s universal Manifestations would be apparent.” 3 4

My sister and brother-in-law recently relocated and chose to donate several books in their library rather than move them. Many of these volumes are not well-known, but due to the topics they cover and the manner in which their authors explore them, they warrant a nod of recognition before being sent on their way. Accordingly, most quotes referenced in the “Quoted” section come from these books. Maybe they will stir (or renew) your interest, too.
