Replace A Thought Of War By A Thought Of Peace

There is nothing so heartbreaking and terrible as an outburst of human savagery!
I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content.

Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness.

When soldiers of the world draw their swords to kill, soldiers of God clasp each other’s hands! So may all the savagery of man disappear by the Mercy of God, working through the pure in heart and the sincere of soul. Do not think the peace of the world an ideal impossible to attain!
Nothing is impossible to the Divine Benevolence of God.

If you desire with all your heart, friendship with every race on earth, your thought, spiritual and positive, will spread; it will become the desire of others, growing stronger and stronger, until it reaches the minds of all men.

Do not despair! Work steadily. Sincerity and love will conquer hate. How many seemingly impossible events are coming to pass in these days! Set your faces steadily towards the Light of the World.

Show love to all; “Love is the breath of the Holy Spirit in the heart of Man.” Take courage! God never forsakes His children who strive and work and pray! Let your hearts be filled with the strenuous desire that tranquillity and harmony may encircle all this warring world. So will success crown your efforts, and with the universal brotherhood will come the Kingdom of God in peace and goodwill.

El primer llamado del Amado es éste

span-phw1-4-2-16-01

El primer llamado del Amado es éste: ¡Oh ruiseñor místico!, no habites sino en la rosaleda del espíritu. ¡Oh mensajero del Salomón del amor!, no busques refugio sino en el Sabá del bienamado. Y, ¡oh fénix inmortal!, no mores sino en el monte de la fidelidad. Allí está tu morada si con las alas de tu alma te remontas hacia el reino de lo infinito y tratas de llegar a tu objetivo.
~ Bahá’u’lláh
