FAITH VIEWPOINT: forging a spiritual relationship and understanding of the world

Sun, 01/07/2018 - 1:49pm
"CREATE in me a pure heart, O my God, and renew a tranquil conscience within me, O my Hope!" This is the opening line of one of my favourite prayers in my Baha’i Prayer Book. Creating unity, harmony, peace in the world is the global vision of Baha’u’llah of the Baha’i Faith. This starts with each person creating this within themselves, and as a Baha’i, this means to me, saying prayers, reading from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, forging a spiritual relationship and understanding of the world that can renew a positive outlook on life.
