We're planning on going to a Baha'i Center nearby for our Naw-Ruz and are taking along some friends... I think it's pretty cool that Spring coincides with Naw-Ruz as well..

Nothing nearby for me, but the wife and I are going to get intoxicated. :)

Intoxicated in the writings of Baha, I may also take my lovely out to a restaurant.

Happy days

In addition to a Naw-Ruz dinner in the evening, I'll have a fascinating morning at the dentist. :)

Peace,

New Year quotation

O ye [1] children of the Kingdom!
[1 Revealed for American Believers in 1906, who had sent Abdul-Baha a New Year's greeting.]

It is New Year; that is to say, the rounding of the cycle of the year. A year is the expression of a cycle (of the sun); but now is the beginning of a cycle of Reality, a New Cycle, a New Age, a New Century, a New Time and a New Year. Therefore it is very Blessed.

I wish this blessing to appear and become manifest in the faces and characteristics of the believers, so that they, too, may become a new people, and having found new life and been baptized with fire and spirit, may make the world a new world, to the end that the old earth may disappear and the new earth appear; old ideas depart and new thoughts come; old garments be cast aside and new garments put on; ancient politics whose foundation is war be discarded and modern politics founded on peace raise the standard of victory; the new star shine and gleam and the new sun illumine and radiate; new flowers bloom, the new spring become known; the new breeze blow; the new bounty descend; the new tree give forth new fruit; the new voice become raised and this new sound reach the ears, that the new will follow the new, and all the old furnishings and adornments be cast aside and new decorations put in their places.

I desire for you all that you will have this great assistance and partake of this great bounty, and that in spirit and heart you will strive and endeavor until the world of war become the world of peace; the world of darkness the world of light; satanic conduct be turned into heavenly behavior; the ruined places become built up; the sword be turned into the olive branch; the flash of hatred become the flame of the love of God and the noise of the gun the voice of the Kingdom; the soldiers of death the soldiers of life; all the nations of the world one nation; all races as one race; and all national anthems harmonized into one melody.

Then this material realm will be Paradise, the earth Heaven, and the world of Satan become the world of Angels.

(Abdu'l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha v1, p. 38)
