    Self love is an inherent trait?

    For self-love is kneaded into the very clay of man, and it is not possible that, without any hope of a substantial reward, he should neglect his own present material good. That individual, however, who puts his faith in God and believes in the words of God—because he is promised and certain of a...

    How can I tell I love my neighbour?

    I would like to reflect of this breathtaking quote from Abdul'Bahá, from Paris Talks: The fourth is the love of man for man. The love which exists between the hearts of believers is prompted by the ideal of the unity of spirits. This love is attained through the knowledge of God, so that men...

    Learning to Love People

    I think that the Bahá'ís have nothing to learn about loving God. But it is learning to love people that is hard. Look at 'Abdu'l-Bahá: He knew about it. The rest of us just have so much to learn... best from gnat

    Divine Love

    Love

    "What a power is love! It is the most wonderful, the greatest of all living powers. Love gives life to the lifeless. Love lights a flame in the heart that is cold. Love brings hope to the hopeless and gladdens the hearts of the sorrowful. In the world of existence there is indeed no greater...

    What is more important: religion or love?

    I offer this question up as a subject for discussion. I am not in any way claiming that there is an incompatibility between the two. I'm just hoping to generate some interesting comments that might expand my own understanding and life...

    Religion is God's Love

    Religion is a manifestation of God's love for us. We can get into a mindset that we practice a religion for God. This is not true! We practice religion for the good of humanity, for the good of our families, and for our own good. It is all for us!
