The Promise to Humankind

What a wonderful and fantastic future mankind has in store for it! Never before in human history is there a better time to be alive in! The promise to humankind is that of peace, justice and prosperity that will be available to all people.

The real turning point for humanity was the appearance of a man called Baha'u'llah, in the 19th century. Baha'u'llah, as Bahai's believe is the Messenger of God for the current time. All other Messengers have pointed to the coming of the One unto all will turn. For me, as a Bahai I believe that time has now come. 

The coming of Baha'u'llah has unleashed such spiritual forces that are unstoppable and that will bring about the Most Great Peace as foretold by Baha'u'llah. In the world today we see so many things occurring, from unrest in society to the breakdown of communism, the realization of global awareness and fairness. Old ideas are being thrown away in place of new ideas and we have never seen such advancement in such a short time as this. Not ever in the evolution of humankind. It is nothing short of amazing, but also, how did this come about? Is it this release of spiritual energy that I have spoken about? So powerful that even if you are unaware of it you are being shaped by this unsee-able force? I say yes! 

It is most exciting and it applies a reason to what is happening and it also gives hope to what will occur as well. Hope in that all the injustices that you currently see, will pass away and peace will come. It is a hope that can keep you going and not let you stray from this wonderful path that we are on.

We need to continue this view of oneness of humanity and bring about this collectiveness of thought that is so necessary for a global community life. The oneness of humanity is one of the driving principles of the Bahai Faith. Those principles can be read
here. Justice is one of the powers that can translate into this dawning of the consciousness needed to bring about the changes that we require. 

"At the individual level, justice is that faculty of the human soul that enables each person to distinguish truth from falsehood. In the sight of God, Baha'u'llah avers, Justice is "the best beloved of all things" since it permits each individual to see with his own eyes rather than the eyes of others., to know through his own knowledge rather than the knowledge of his neighbor or his group. It calls for fair-mindedness in one's judgments, for equity in one's treatment of others, and is thus  a constant if demanding companion in the daily occasions of life." Excerpt taken from The Prosperity of Humankind.

So I ask you to comment and leave your thoughts and challenge you to look at justice at your own individual level and to make your own choices and conclusions on what you see and what you can understand. And remember if you don't know the answer it is always ok to ask no matter how silly it may seem. By bringing ideas and concepts to the forefront it opens frank and open discussion and new understanding.

What’s the world with no soul?
