'Abdu'l-Bahá on purity
don't you find this passage refreshing? I know I do.
In the Tablet of Purity 'Abdu'l-Bahá specifically explains that cleanliness of our body is strictly connected to purity of mind, hence influencing our spirit as well.
For me, the fascinating part was when it was mentioned that purity is liberating at the same time. Examples listed in the text include being free from nicotine habit or alcohol intoxication.
In a wider context, in my humble understanding, we ought to treat our body as a temple and just take care of our self so that we can advance on a spiritual level at the same time. Thoughts?

The writings are full of these little gems of wisdom. I always wonder how we can get to know it all
After years of reading you always find new Gems of Wisdom and when re-reading these Gems of Wisdom, more is disclosed.
