“Thy might, in truth, is equal to all things.”

Bahá’u’lláh

“This is, O my God, the first of the days on which Thou hast bidden Thy loved ones to observe the Fast. I ask of Thee by Thy Self and by him who hath fasted out of love for Thee and for Thy good-pleasure—and not out of self and desire, nor out of fear of Thy wrath—and by Thy most excellent names and august attributes, to purify Thy servants from the love of aught except Thee and to draw them nigh unto the Dawning-Place of the lights of Thy countenance and the Seat of the throne of Thy oneness.”

Bahá’u’lláh

kat eghdamian/left (oxford, uk): This year: full of gratitude, contentment, and complete awe of life’s blessings and confirmations.

glenn loe/right (japan): In the Hidden Words of Bahá’u’lláh Arabic 69, Bahá’u’lláh says, “O YE SONS OF SPIRIT! Ye are My treasury, for in you I have treasured the pearls of My mysteries and the gems of My knowledge. Guard them from the strangers amidst My servants and from the ungodly amongst My people.” And makes me think that there are a lot of strangers and ungodly amongst us that we should be aware of. So we have to be always be on our guard and not fall prey to them.
