What did Abdu’l-Baha say are the potent sources of the progress of man, at all times and under all conditions? What did Shoghi Effendi say was the one joy and yearning of his life?
Allah'uabha, Sounds great Jim, what are your references, I would love to read them.Don’t any Baha’is here have any interest in Abdu’l-Baha says are the potent sources of the progress of man, at all times and under all conditions, or what Shoghi Effendi said was the one joy and yearning of his life?
As it also ties into the institutions, this may be the passage you refer to;Tony, yes, that was the passage I was thinking of from Abdu’l-Baha. I like that one from Shoghi Effendi, but I was thinking of a different one. Now I’m wondering how the two might be related. Also, it puts the one I was thinking of in a different light. Very interesting. I’d like to see if you can find the one I was thinking of, and then we can consider how it might have happened that Shoghi called one thing the “one joy and yearning” of his life, and something else the “deepest yearning” of his heart. I see that we might learn something from that.
