nineteen days

day fifteen

Posted in the fast - 2012 by amysahba on March 16, 2012

“Dost thou reckon thyself only a puny form, when within thee the universe is folded?”

Bahá’u’lláh

“O ye beloved of the Lord! Strive to become the manifestations of the love of God, the lamps of divine guidance shining amongst the kindreds of the earth with the light of love and concord.”

´Abdu’l-Bahá

 elizabeth sabet/left (santa ana, costa rica): The Fast is always a challenging time, altering patterns and processes of thought–not just for its nineteen day duration, but leaving behind lasting change (or so I always hope). This Fast arrived like a welcome friend, bringing with it the comfort and relief of knowing that for this short time quotidian cares must take a back seat.  With the everyday noise figuratively relegated to the background, as I enter this new year my mind is occupied by equal measures of uncertainty and gratitude.

mona reyhani/right (mannheim, germany): While the first ten days have been a whirlwind of events and travels I am now beginning to appreciate the calmness and serenity that every morning brings with it. The sense of a new beginning with every new morning is refreshing and the manner in which each evening ties together all loose ends is reassuring. This season of awareness and consciousness already left its marks and I will give my all to absorb and enjoy these few remaining days.
