Jalál, 12 ‘Aẓamat (Grandeur), 179 B.E
We started a small bed of Horned Pansy, or sometimes called “Johnny Jump Up,” (Viola cornuta) from seed several years ago. Unfortunately, it was along the same fence line as the iris mentioned in yesterday’s “Daily Log” post. Now, we have a couple of volunteer Johnnys that “jumped up” in a raised bed away from the fence. I may just plant a packet of seeds along side it so that when they sprout it won’t be alone.
On 15 May 2022 , I posted a series of five slides to “Daily Log” with each one corresponding to a particular theme of the world conferences underway. The second one, “Distance traversed” looked like this:
The distance traversed can extend along a timeframe of any length. As an example, below is a graphic representation of multiple cycles, eras, ages, epochs and stages any one of which can be used as the baseline to track change-related, s-curve activities:
The next post will graphically represent messages published each year by the Universal House of Justice about activities during the second epoch of the Divine Plan and onto the start of the third epoch (see my “Unfoldment of the Divine Plan” post on 27 April 2021 for more details).
The divine Manifestations have been iconoclastic in Their teachings, uprooting error, destroying false religious beliefs and summoning mankind anew to the fundamental oneness of God. All of Them have, likewise, proclaimed the oneness of the world of humanity. The essential teaching of Moses was the law of Sinai, the Ten Commandments. Christ renewed and again revealed the commands of the one God and precepts of human action. In Muḥammad, although the circle was wider, the intention of His teaching was likewise to uplift and unify humanity in the knowledge of the one God. In the Báb the circle was again very much enlarged, but the essential teaching was the same. The Books of Bahá’u’lláh number more than one hundred. Each one is an evident proof sufficient for mankind; each one from foundation to apex proclaims the essential unity of God and humanity, the love of God, the abolition of war and the divine standard of peace. Each one also inculcates divine morality, the manifestation of lordly graces—in every word a book of meanings. For the Word of God is collective wisdom, absolute knowledge and eternal truth. 1
