Do Not Become Veiled


“The sun is the same sun,
no matter from what sign it may manifest itself
or from what spot it may arise.
Thou must look at the Sun;
do not become veiled by
the places from which the Sun appears.”
-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of Abdul-Baha Abbas

Inspired by Boonah Trip

 “Throughout the universe the divine power is effulgent in endless images and pictures. The world of creation, the world of humanity may be likened to the earth itself and the divine power to the sun.”
-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Compilation, Baha’i World Faith

This month’s Nineteen month’s contribution.

I was so inspired by this trip to Boonah.  Can you believe these images were all taken from a moving car?

No I wasn’t driving!  We had just been to the most wonderful devotional meeting hosted by a dear friend.

People from several nationalities in the small town of Boonah 100 kilometres from Brisbane had gathered for prayer and meditation on the concept of fellowship.

We shared prayers from world religions, music, fellowship, and learnt a little more about each other.

We left to go home and the setting sun was glorious, and we had another meeting to get to.  I so longed to stop but luckily I was able to take a few images from our car.

This moving sun felt like the continual blessing of the devotional meeting we had just been to.

Ah the metaphor of sun – divine power – divine blessing.
