Slide13 l.jpg

How many the húrís of inner meaning that are as yet concealed within the chambers of divine wisdom! None hath yet approached them; - húrís, "whom no man nor spirit hath touched before."

Bahá'u'lláh


Had th of the hidden treasure l.jpg
Hadí concealed within the chambers of divine wisdom! None hath yet approached them; - húrís, "whom no man nor spirit hath touched before."th of the Hidden Treasure

I was a Hidden Treasure.

I wished to be made known,

and thus I called creation into being

in order that I might be known.


Slide15 l.jpg

O SON OF MAN! I loved thy creation, hence I created Thee. Wherefore, do thou love Me, that I may name thy name and fill thy soul with the spirit of life.

Bahá’u’lláh


Slide16 l.jpg

O SON OF MAN! Veiled in My immemorial being and in the ancient eternity of My essence, I knew My love for thee; therefore I created thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee My beauty.

Bahá’u’lláh


Slide17 l.jpg

Love is the cause of God's revelation unto man, the vital bond inherent, in accordance with the divine creation, in the realities of things.

`Abdu'l-Bahá


Thesis and challenge l.jpg

Thesis and Challenge bond inherent, in accordance with the divine creation, in the realities of things.

Science possesses (or thinks it possesses) very exact knowledge about very discrete portions of reality (which it thus studies as a modular system)

Philosophy and religion possess (or think they possess) very inexact knowledge about the entirety of reality (which they study as a holographic system).

Stated even more succinctly, science offers a bottom up view of reality, while philosophy and religion offer a top-down view.

My objective is to offer a synthesized or integrative view to these ostensibly opposing but potentially complementary approaches to reality.

It could happen l.jpg

It Could Happen! bond inherent, in accordance with the divine creation, in the realities of things.

Within the treasury of Our Wisdom there lieth unrevealed a knowledge, one word of which, if we chose to divulge it to mankind, would cause every human being to recognize the Manifestation of God and to acknowledge His omniscience, would enable every one to discover the secrets of all the sciences, and to attain so high a station as to find himself wholly independent of all past and future learning.

Slide41 l.jpg

The myth of falling in love operates wherever passion is dreamed of as an ideal instead of being feared like a malignant fever; imagined as a magnificent and desirable disaster instead of as simply a disaster. It lives upon the lives of people who think that love is their fate (and as unavoidable as the effect of the love-potion in the Romance); that it swoops upon powerless and ravished men and women in order to consume them in a pure flame; or that it is stronger and more real than happiness, society, or morality.

1. Western Romantic Concept of Love with Happy Ending Syndrome

He arrives just in time!

She is about to wed another

They are wed!

Both suffer Malady of Love

End of Story

He must Prove Himself

Love at First Sight

“It just can’t get any better than this!”

2. Cyclical Seinfeld Syndrome Syndrome

“Because it just can’t get any better than this!”

“I am going to do it again!”

“And again!”

“And again!”

“And again!”

“And again!”

“And again!”

“And I really don’t feel well. . . .”



Romeo and juliet l.jpg
Romeo and Juliet Syndrome

Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”

O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?

Wilt thou be gone? It is not yet near day! It was the nightingale, and not the lark!

O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick.

O happy dagger! This is thy sheath.


According to abdu l bah none of these three paradigms events is authentic love l.jpg

According to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá Syndromenone of these three paradigms (events) is authentic love!


Slide48 l.jpg

The love which sometimes exists between friends is not (true) love, because it is subject to transmutation; this is merely fascination. As the breeze blows, the slender trees yield. If the wind is in the East the tree leans to the West, and if the wind turns to the West the tree leans to the East. This kind of love is originated by the accidental conditions of life. This is not love, it is merely acquaintanceship; it is subject to change.


Slide49 l.jpg

Today you will see two souls apparently in close friendship; tomorrow all this may be changed. Yesterday they were ready to die for one another, today they shun one another's society! This is not love; it is the yielding of the hearts to the accidents of life. When that which has caused this `love' to exist passes, the love passes also; this is not in reality love.


Love as process l.jpg

Love as Process tomorrow all this may be changed. Yesterday they were ready to die for one another, today they shun one another's society!

Attraction Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God


Why we want to know about reality l.jpg
Why We Want to Know about Reality Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God

Science is the first emanation from God toward man. All created beings embody the potentiality of material perfection, but the power of intellectual investigation and scientific acquisition is a higher virtue specialized to man alone. Other beings and organisms are deprived of this potentiality and attainment. God has created or deposited this love of reality in man.”

'Abdu'l-Bahá


Slide59 l.jpg

What Studying Reality Teaches Us Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God

All things, in their inmost reality, testify to the revelation of the names and attributes of God within them. Each according to its capacity, indicateth, and is expressive of, the knowledge of God. So potent and universal is this revelation, that it hath encompassed all things visible and invisible.

The Necessity of Progressing to Understanding Attraction Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God

And if, confirmed by the Creator, the lover escapes from the claws of the eagle of love, he will enter the Valley of Knowledge and come out of doubt into certitude, and turn from the darkness of illusion to the guiding light of the fear of God. His inner eyes will open and he will privily converse with his Beloved; he will set ajar the gate of truth and piety, and shut the doors of vain imaginings.

John Donne’s “Holy Sonnet XIV” Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God

Batter my heart, three-person'd God ; for youAs yet but knock ; breathe, shine, and seek to mend ;That I may rise, and stand, o'erthrow me, and bendYour force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.I, like an usurp'd town, to another due,Labour to admit you, but O, to no end.Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,But am betroth'd unto your enemy ;Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,Take me to you, imprison me, for I,Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.


Slide64 l.jpg

Dear God, Establishing Authentic Collective Love Relationship with God

Thanks a lot for all the Free Will --

I tried it out this morning and got the house really clean for the first time!

But in all candor, I would really rather that You just take care of things Yourself.

Sincerely,

John Donne

It follows, therefore, that every man hath been, and will continue to be, able of himself to appreciate the Beauty of God, the Glorified. Had he not been endowed with such a capacity, how could he be called to account for his failure?

Pre existent l.jpg

Pre-Existent Spiritual Reality

The Prophets, unlike us, are pre-existent. The soul of Christ existed in the spiritual world before His birth in this world. We cannot imagine what that world is like, so words are inadequate to picture His state of being.

Shoghi Effendi


Pre existent knowledge l.jpg

Pre-Existent Knowledge Spiritual Reality

By the one true God! We read the Tablet ere it was revealed, while ye were unaware, and We had perfect knowledge of the Book when ye were yet unborn. These words are to your measure, not to God's. To this testifieth that which is enshrined within His knowledge, if ye be of them that comprehend; and to this the tongue of the

Almighty doth bear witness, if ye be of those who understand. I swear by God, were We to lift the veil, ye would be dumbfounded.

Bahá'u'lláh


Choosing where to become manifest l.jpg

Choosing Where to Become Manifest Spiritual Reality

The primary reason why the Báb and Bahá'u'lláh chose to appear in Persia, and to make it the first repository of their Revelation, was because, of all the peoples and nations of the civilized world, that race and nation had, as so often depicted by Abdu'l-Bahá, sunk to such ignominious depths, and manifested so great a perversity, as to find no parallel among its contemporaries.

Shoghi Effendi


Choosing the persona through which to become manifest l.jpg

Choosing the Persona through Which to Become Manifest Spiritual Reality

The dissolution of the tabernacle wherein the soul of the Manifestation of God had chosen temporarily to abide signalized its release from the restrictions which an earthly life had, of necessity, imposed upon it.

Manifestations become incarnate when humans mature physically l.jpg
Manifestations Become Incarnate When Humans Mature Physically

Though we cannot imagine exactly what the Manifestations of the remote past were like, we can be sure of two things: They must have been able to reach their fellow-men in a normal manner - as Bahá'u'lláh reached His generation, and They were sent from God and thus Divine Beings.

Shoghi Effendi


Aware of station from beginning l.jpg
Aware of Station From Beginning Physically

Verily, from the beginning that Holy Reality is conscious of the secret of existence, and from the age of childhood signs of greatness appear and are visible in Him. Therefore, how can it be that with all these bounties and perfections He should have no consciousness?

`Abdu'l-Bahá


They are exemplars of their own teaching l.jpg
They are Exemplars of Their Own Teaching Physically

He Who is everlastingly hidden from the eyes of men can never be known except through His Manifestation, and His Manifestation can adduce no greater proof of the truth of His Mission than the proof of His own Person.

Bahá'u'lláh


One explanation of their omniscience l.jpg
One Explanation of Their Omniscience Physically

Since the Sanctified Realities, the supreme Manifestations of God, surround the essence and qualities of the creatures, transcend and contain existing realities and understand all things, therefore, Their knowledge is divine knowledge, and not acquired - that is to say, it is a holy bounty; it is a divine revelation.

`Abdu'l-Bahá


They are omnipotent at will l.jpg
They are Omnipotent at Will Physically

He Who is the Dawning-place of God's Cause hath no partner in the Most Great Infallibility. He it is Who, in the kingdom of creation, is the Manifestation of "He doeth whatsoever He willeth".

Baha’u’llah


Creativity of the prophet l.jpg

Creativity of the Prophet Physically

Not ours, the living witnesses of the all-subduing potency of His Faith, to question, for a moment, and however dark the misery that enshrouds the world, the ability of Bahá'u'lláh to forge, with the hammer of His Will, and through the fire of tribulation, upon the anvil of this travailing age, and in the particular shape His mind has envisioned, these scattered and mutually destructive fragments into which a perverse world has fallen, into one single unit, solid and indivisible, able to execute His design for the children of men.

Shoghi Effendi


They are not transformed into manifestations l.jpg
They are not Transformed into Manifestations Physically

Briefly, the Holy Manifestations have ever been, and ever will be, Luminous Realities; no change or variation takes place in Their essence. Before declaring Their manifestation, They are silent and quiet like a sleeper, and after Their manifestation, They speak and are illuminated, like one who is awake.

Wisdom of the Third Condition Physically

In My presence amongst you there is a wisdom, and in My absence there is yet another, inscrutable to all but God, the Incomparable, the All-Knowing. Verily, We behold you from Our realm of glory, and shall aid whosoever will arise for the triumph of Our Cause with the hosts of the Concourse on high and a company of Our favored angels.

Bahá'u'lláh


One aspect of that wisdom l.jpg

The dissolution of the tabernacle wherein the soul of the Manifestation of God had chosen temporarily to abide signalized its release from the restrictions which an earthly life had, of necessity, imposed upon it. Its influence no longer circumscribed by any physical limitations, its radiance no longer beclouded by its human temple, that soul could henceforth energize the whole world to a degree unapproached at any stage in the course of its existence on this planet.

Shoghi Effendi

One Aspect of that Wisdom


Attaining the presence of god is not a literal event l.jpg
Attaining the “Presence of God” is not a literal event Manifestation of God had chosen temporarily to abide signalized its release from the restrictions which an earthly life had, of necessity, imposed upon it. Its influence no longer circumscribed by any physical limitations, its radiance no longer beclouded by its human temple, that soul could henceforth energize the whole world to a degree unapproached at any stage in the course of its existence on this planet.

The knowledge of Him, Who is the Origin of all things, and attainment unto Him, are impossible save through knowledge of, and attainment unto, these luminous Beings who proceed from the Sun of Truth. By attaining, therefore, to the presence of these holy Luminaries, the "Presence of God" Himself is attained. From their knowledge, the knowledge of God is revealed, and from the light of their countenance, the splendour of the Face of God is made manifest.

Bahá’u’lláh


Intermediary relationship persists in afterlife l.jpg

Intermediary Relationship Persists in Afterlife Manifestation of God had chosen temporarily to abide signalized its release from the restrictions which an earthly life had, of necessity, imposed upon it. Its influence no longer circumscribed by any physical limitations, its radiance no longer beclouded by its human temple, that soul could henceforth energize the whole world to a degree unapproached at any stage in the course of its existence on this planet.

We will have experience of God’s spirit through His Prophets in the next world, but God is too great for us to know without this Intermediary. The Prophets know God, but how is more than our human minds can grasp.
