I must thank those of you who sent me this link from CNN on U-Tube. After watching it, I thought the best way to respond is to share with you the alternative, the remedy, the only way out of this global impasse I know for all children’s sake if nothing else!
Humanity is like a single organic body and for it to live and grow, every single living cell in it must learn to live in harmony with the rest. Declaration of independence by any cell, claims of superiority by one cell over the other for whatever reason, or even competition of one cell with the rest has only one consequence; the death of the whole body! Do we get it? This spiritual law of unity is the equivalent of the law of gravity in the physical world. Breaking this God given law has cost humanity so much pain and suffering at every level. A family dies when it is inflicted with disunity, a nation dies when it is no longer united, and our global village is raised to dust when we remain ignorant of this divine law given to us by Baha’u’llah since 160 years ago.
Religion was given to man as a most effective means for unity. Religion was never meant to be the end and is only useful if it brings unity to the body. The Baha’i Teachings make it very clear that if religion becomes the cause of disunity it is better to be without it.
Baha’u’llah teaches: “O well-beloved ones! The tabernacle of unity hath been raised; regard ye not one another a strangers. Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.
The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. This unity can never be achieved so long as the counsels which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed are suffered to pass unheeded.”
Not only the Baha’i children in Iran but all children will be spared if we welcome only this wisdom of teachings of Baha’u’llah.
