Finding the Divine in the Details

Delivered from a darkened world

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?
