Will of God

Month, Day: 173, Will, Dominion (Independence)

Gleanings, LXXIII: Just as the conception of faith hath existed from the beginning that hath no beginning, and will endure till the end that hath no end, in like manner will the true believer eternally live and endure. His spirit will everlastingly circle round the Will of God. He will last as long as God, Himself, will last.
 
 What more could we want?

New Year

Month, Day: 173, Might, Questions (Majesty)

First of all: New Years - 1439 and 5778.

This year, I will be writing more about the moon phases and their influence. There are several motivations for this, including decades of observation and study. Too, I just started to pay attention to the moon focus of Islam's calendar. And, I need to revisit Judaism's approach.

Have to follow up with comments in this blog related to angels. I quit paying attention to the Wikipedia page long ago and came here. One thing that grated was the over-bearing attitude of some of the editors. I'll have to go back and see if things have changed. Not the content of the page, no the comments and re-edits brought about by some seeming to know more than others.

Perhaps, that might be true; however, in these realms, we are to bow to the Writings. That does not mean that someone cannot express an opinion.

I like this page: 5 Ways to attract and become angels

But, some of the posts here that  are related to the theme are the following
I must say, finding this page on Baha'i Cosmology was greatly appreciated.

Cavil

Month, Day: 173, Mercy, Beauty (Beauty)

Say this today. Had seen it before. But, today, the significance came forward.

Imagine: people? A caviling lot. Mercy, indeed, as a necessity

From the Aqdas, page 124.
  • 57. QUESTION: Concerning disparities between certain revealed verses.
        
    ANSWER: Many Tablets were revealed and dispatched in their original form without being checked and reviewed. Consequently, as bidden, they were again read out in the Holy Presence, and brought into conformity with the grammatical conventions of the people in order to forestall the cavils of opponents of the Cause. Another reason for this practice is that the new style inaugurated by the Herald, may the souls of all else but Him be offered up for His sake, was seen to be marked by substantial latitude in adherence to the rules of grammar; sacred verses therefore were then revealed in a style which is for the most part in conformity with current usage for ease of understanding and concision of expression.

Jung and others

Month, Day: 173, Light, Might (Grace)

Recently, I was browsing and reading about Kant and Jung. It was nice to run into an article about the development of Kant's views. To put him in a timescale, he was born 100 years prior to the Manifestations. 

Now, Kant influenced Jung who made great contributions to the study of psychology which is a discipline very much to be influenced by the Writings.
This type of view will be necessary to show how to overcome secularization's limits.

Blogging quotes

Month, Day: 173, Splendour, Names (Grace)

I ran across a blog through links in FB. Here are a couple of posts with quotes:
The second post got me to look at the Quran for further study.
      And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a measure for all things. (Surah 65-3)

      And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). (Surah 65-2)
Then, we have the Remover of Difficulties prayer.

03/28/2017 -- Changed "versus" to "verses" (which is an example of a Jungian slip). The mind was thinking of the Quran's version versus its modernization.
