    The Station of America.

    I want to talk about the station of America from the perspective of the Bahai Writings. My understanding is that America will occupy a prominent position spiritually in the future. But that it is not a given. That if Baha'is fail to do what they are supposed to do, namely teach the Faith, then...

    Comparison of Station of Abdulbaha, Shoghi Effendi and UHJ

    As you are well aware, an essential element of the Covenant of Bahá'u'lláh is the acceptance of the infallibility of the Guardian. In response to questions about this matter, a letter written on his behalf in 1944 stated: The infallibility of the Guardian is confined to matters which are...

    I recall a distinct difference being explained between "station" and "rank". Anyone know about this? Thank you.

    How the wife of the Bab became aware of His station

    Khadijih (Bagum) said how, one late afternoon, He (The Bab) came home earlier than usual. He said He had a particular task for that evening, and asked for dinner to be served earlier. Fiddih the maidservant usually did the cooking, and the family ate their evening meal in the room of the Bab’s...

    The lofty station of Pioneering

    The spiritual act of pioneering is of a supremely high station in this dispensation. God bless and confirm them in their service! "O ye homeless and wanderers in the Path of God! Prosperity, contentment, and freedom, however much desired and conducive to the gladness of the human heart, can...

    Baha'u'llah's station

    No special station, not actually

    I think all of our desire to be "saved" or "right" or "special" or reach some "exalted station" is just a mind-game. I like this quotation from C.S. Lewis very much: “You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve," said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest...

    The man Behind the Station Christ & Baha'u'llah

    I thought this would be a good Topic for us to share together. I had posted this on the Catholic Forum, but it got moderated off quickly :cool: I did not intend it to be a Baha'i vs Christian Discussion, Its intent was to explore the lives of the Heralds of both the Christian and Baha'i Faith...

    Our station compared to the Creator

    My current understanding of this subject is that we are indeed the created from an infinite Creator. We are a dependent and imperfect incarnation compared to a Perfect and Sovereign Lord. We are wholly dependent upon a life giving spark – the essence of life- we are dependent to take our next...

    Station of Confucius

    Hello. Does anyone know if there was a translation error with the inclusion of Confucius in this list, which is otherwise composed exclusively of Manifestations of God? "Blessed souls--whether Moses, Jesus, Zoroaster, Krishna, Buddha, Confucius or Muhammad--were the cause of the illumination of...

    Is this the station of man, said another way?

    I have been saying for years to people that would say, oh you are so smart, you are so intelligent, that I could not have said things if they had not been listening and that even to the degree I may become complex in thinking and expressing ideas has to do with their ability to accept, perceive...
