’Idál, 09 ‘Aẓamat (Grandeur), 179 B.E
Last winter, I threw a few field pumpkins (Cucurbita pepo) we had used as seasonal decorations into one of the raised beds. Now, several seedlings have emerged. Here’s one of them:
My experience with vine plants as squash, melon, and zucchini is that they attract all manner of harmful insects that will do them in before their fruit is ready to harvest unless they are chemically treated. But I’m ready to be pleasantly surprised ;-)
This slide overlays the “world conferences” (see 02 April 2022 post for more details) as a block of specific activities at the outset of 179 BE (see 24 May 2022 post for original diagram) that put into motion the Nine Year Plan.
Note that the world conferences focus on convening “forums and agendas” that catalyze “conversations that matter” among people who don’t often have the opportunity for such exchanges. These conversations will encourage participants and others with whom they collaborate to find “ways that work” and draw upon those successes with confidence to influence “changes that sustain” within governance institutions.
Look for follow-on reports this summer and fall about “experimentation and learning” activities underway as a result of world conference conversations and fulfilled commitments to action.

Therefore, it is our duty in this radiant century to investigate the essentials of divine religion, seek the realities underlying the oneness of the world of humanity and discover the source of fellowship and agreement which will unite mankind in the heavenly bond of love. This unity is the radiance of eternity, the divine spirituality, the effulgence of God and the bounty of the Kingdom. We must investigate the divine source of these heavenly bestowals and adhere unto them steadfastly. For if we remain fettered and restricted by human inventions and dogmas, day by day the world of mankind will be degraded, day by day warfare and strife will increase and satanic forces converge toward the destruction of the human race. 1
