Some waftings of inspiration I’m pondering this week, to see how they relate to and inform each other:
“When I speak of health, I refer to spiritual health.
The health of the body is impermanent.
But spiritual health passeth not away;
it is attained when the spirit of man is delivered from
the conditions of the darkened world, and becomes
enveloped and permeated by divine qualities.”
~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Throne of the Inner Temple, p. 20
What is my personal relationship to and perception of spiritual health?
What are the elements of eternal life (divine attributes) by which I am willing / desire to be enveloped and permeated?
And how do each of these relate to the following concept?
“The world civilization now on humanity’s horizon must achieve a dynamic coherence between the material and spiritual requirements of life.”
~ The Universal House of Justice, Ridvan Message 2010
If spiritual well-being is the lasting, permanent reality, how does material life serve it?
