Advent is coming

"We, the two billion people currently on the planet, are living at a time when not only the pulpits of all the religions, but all things must be condemning us, each in that voice which, according to the Qur'án, God has given to all things: "God, Who giveth a voice to all things, hath given us a voice...." (41:20). We who have killed some forty-five million human beings in the past thirty-five years, strangers whom we did not even know by name. We who have denied our qualitative difference from the animals and have tried to live in their world, an attempt which has proved as successful as would be the animal's to turn into a tree or the tree's to be a stone. We who spend our time devising elaborate excuses to justify our ways; who always blame someone else, who always want someone else to save us.

It is not surprising that Bahá'u'lláh, the Persian nobleman Who declared His spiritual mission in 1863, should also say: "... ye walk on My earth complacent and self-satisfied, heedless that My earth is weary of you and everything within it shunneth you."

Meanwhile we long for happiness, and then reject it when it is brought to us. Because happiness for human beings means being raised out of the blind physical world into the conscious life of the spirit, and this can only be done by the Prophet of God. At His advent we fight Him and resist Him, whether He is Moses or Buddha, Jesus or Muhammad, or Bahá'u'lláh. "
Introduction to the Epistle to the Son of the Wolf by Marzieh Gail

For liturgical Christains this Sunday marks the beginning of the season of advent, the season awaiting the coming of Jesus. Even if you aren't in a liturgical church we hear Christmas songs on the radio and displays in every store. Yet, how many times have we rejected the annointed Messengers? Christmas is the celebration of the coming of whom God made manifest. May this season we turn our face towards Him and may us with loving hearts enthrone Him and all of His manifestations.
