“O God, my God, my Beloved, my heart’s Desire.”
“I entreat Thee by Thy footsteps in this wilderness, and by the words “Here am I. Here am I” which Thy chosen Ones have uttered in this immensity, and by the breaths of Thy Revelation, and the gentle winds of the Dawn of Thy Manifestation, to ordain that I may gaze on Thy beauty and observe whatsoever is in Thy Book.”
alison bird/left (kampala, uganda): This year’s Fast has abounded with blessings. From the bounty of breaking the Fast almost every day with dear friends to the honor of visiting and praying at the Bahá’í House of Worship for the African continent to the many unexpected opportunities that have arisen to share this beloved Faith with colleagues and new friends in an almost seamless manner—I am filled with a sense of immense gratitude and love.
zach miloff/right (halifax, nova scotia, canada): Pursuing detachment, acceptance and surrender. And trusting that there is in fact good reason in the mysteries of the unknown. This is what I’m fasting for.
