’Idál, 03 Kamál (Perfection), 179 B.E
A one-night stand ;-)
Worked on a couple of presentations to support the joint ebbf-IEF “Global Solidarity Accounting” initiative. The first highlights the five themes integral to the design of global conferences hosted by Bahá’í communities worldwide. Through the design, participants could unpack the concept of “oneness” and better understand how rendering service to humanity brings us closer to achieving it.
The second presentation focuses on the change management process that unfolds when multiple protagonists engage in conversation, experimentation, and adaptation during their collective pursuit of “oneness.”

Consider man while in the state of sleep; it is evident that all his parts and members are at a standstill, are functionless. His eye does not see, his ear does not hear, his feet and hands are motionless; but, nevertheless, he does see in the world of dreams, he does hear, he speaks, he walks, he may even fly in an airplane. Therefore, it becomes evident that though the body be dead, yet the spirit is alive and permanent. Nay, the perceptions may be keener when man’s body is asleep, the flight may be higher, the hearing may be more acute; all the functions are there, and yet the body is at a standstill. Hence it is proof that there is a spirit in the man, and in this spirit there is no distinction as to whether the body be asleep or absolutely dead and dependent. The spirit is not incapacitated by these conditions; it is not bereft of its existence; it is not bereft of its perfections. The proofs are many, innumerable.
These are all rational proofs. Nobody can refute them. As we have shown that there is a spirit and that this spirit is permanent and everlasting, we must strive to learn of it. May you become informed of its power, hasten to render it divine, to have it become sanctified and holy and make it the very light of the world illumining the East and the West. 1
