Smile Hello Everyone

Hi! I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I found this site because I was searching on the internet for forums related to humility and I found a thread here. I just like to interact with good people and the pevious forum I was a member of was related to technology, but there was something spiritual lacking there. I am not Bahai, but I am a naturally curious and friendly person. I like to discuss ways to truly make my heart golden and gpod which is why I chose my username. Hopefully, we can be friends!

Welcome and it is a very worthy aim you have.

Interestingly Humility is a much needed virtue for the goal you are after. There is in The Baha'i writings a "Hidden Word" which is worth considering;

“1: O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and…”

O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.

Looking forward to a chat or two

Regards Tony

Welcome, Golden Soul,

It's all so easy in theory, but it takes a lifetime to realize one's inability. :-) Basically, it's all about the virtues: The Virtues Project

The virtues shape the receptacle, into which God's grace flows. Whatever virtue is weak, it causes a leak. And so it goes on...

Why do I so often feel that I don't have a receptacle, but instead constantly work with a plumbing job?
