January 23, 2017, Prescott-
Today was another day of us plowing through tough weather, and getting much of our teaching done, working around heightened levels of excitement, as the snow began to fall, once again, in mid-day, after a morning of rain. Once back at home base, I returned to matters of the spirit.
Baha’u’llah tells us that it is the duty of the individual to investigate truth, and not to overly depend on other humans to impart enlightenment. He writes that the great Spiritual Masters, Whom we call Manifestations of God, guide us to all truth, through Their Writings, but also through Their lives. An examination of each of these lives shows, in essence, and in consideration of the times in which each Master lived, a remarkable consistency. Each lived according to the Golden Rule (Mean), in all its implications.
Now, more than ever, it falls to us to develop a full awareness, and appreciation, of the Golden Rule, and to educate ourselves in all its aspects. This is my understanding of independent investigation of Truth.
