Whenever another natural disaster occurs, including earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and tornadoes, the below "Hidden Word" from the sacred texts of my faith occurs to me: NOTE: This is God speaking to us humans ---

“O YE THAT ARE LYING AS DEAD ON THE COUCH OF HEEDLESSNESS!

Ages have passed and your precious lives are well-nigh ended, yet not a single breath of purity hath reached Our court of holiness from you. Though immersed in the ocean of misbelief, yet with your lips ye profess the one true faith of God. Him whom I abhor ye have loved, and of My foe ye have made a friend. Notwithstanding, ye walk on My earth complacent and self-satisfied, heedless that My earth is weary of you and everything within it shunneth you. Were ye but to open your eyes, ye would, in truth, prefer a myriad griefs unto this joy, and would count death itself better than this life.”

- By Baha'u'llah, The Persian Hidden Words (#20)

[emphasis added]

In this small book of spiritual guidance (titled "Hidden Words") this one is, by far, one of the most harsh regarding the actions of humanity.

But it really makes me wonder if the Earth is trying to shake us off of its surface or otherwise rebel against us because of our bad behavior.

Just to provide some balance, one of the other Hidden Words states "Love Me [God] that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee."

Just something to meditate upon.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
