Fidál, 18 Asmá’ (Names), 179 B.E
Earlier this spring when the rhubarb had bolted, I wonder if news plants would start from the seeds. Now I have the answer:
Started mapping content for a new blog forum I’ve been encouraged to use. And I helped Michael Greenman setup a local food systems project on a new to us platform underdevelopment by a colleague of ours. Refined the email newsletter template on MailChimp in advance of us distributing our first issue later this week. Lastly, added more notes to my Evernote stacks and notebooks in an effort to align what I’m writing in Ulysses with what I’m posting on soon to be four and possibly five platforms. Guess I’d better really like to write ;-)
… In order that human souls, minds and spirits may attain advancement, tranquillity and vision in broader horizons of unity and knowledge, Bahá’u’lláh proclaimed certain principles or teachings, some of which I will mention.
First, man must independently investigate reality, for the disagreements and dissensions which afflict and affect humanity primarily proceed from imitations of ancestral beliefs and adherences to hereditary forms of worship. These imitations are accidental and without sanction in the Holy Books. They are the outcomes of human interpretations and teachings which have arisen, gradually obscuring the real light of divine meaning and causing men to differ and dissent. The reality proclaimed in the heavenly Books and divine teachings is ever conducive to love, unity and fellowship. 1
