I have been pretty busy the last few days.
I will be writing a more meaningful entry very shortly but thought I’d give a little insight into what i’m up to this week, aside from dental school in the day:
Here is an excerpt:
Leaders of religion, exponents of political theories, governors of human institutions, who at present are witnessing with perplexity and dismay the bankruptcy of their ideas, and the disintegration of their handiwork, would do well to turn their gaze to the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh, and to meditate upon the World Order which, lying enshrined in His teachings, is slowly and imperceptibly rising amid the welter and chaos of present-day civilization. They need have no doubt or anxiety regarding the nature, the origin or validity of the institutions which the adherents of the Faith are building up throughout the world. For these lie embedded in the teachings themselves, unadulterated and unobscured by unwarrantable inferences, or unauthorized interpretations of His Word.
Tuesday evening: Taking photographs for a launch at the Foreign Policy Centre at the British Government’s Houses of Parliament . This is for the launch of a pamphlet entitled ‘A revolution without rights? Women, Kurds and Baha’is searching for equality in Iran’
Wednesday evening: Watching Waltz with Bashir with some friends in central London.
Waltz with Bashir is an award winning animated documentary of the Israeli-Lebannon war. The trailer can be seen here
Dental School has recently upped the ante in terms of stress, exams and requirements to graduate….
Apart from prayers, I like play my guitar/bass and read poetry to unwind.
Here is a quatrain (Rubaiyat) of poetry by Rumi that I found inspiring and peaceful:
It’s good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.
