Faith, religion & spirituality are in constant combat with modern life. In this day-in-age it is so easy to forget what matters most – love, respect, and kindness. Take a moment to reflect on the 7 ways that you, too, can used to obtain divine gifts & powers. Peace of mind doesn’t have to come at a price. The teachings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá show the inclusiveness of spirituality and life balance.
“By what means shall a man acquire these things? How shall he obtain these merciful gifts and powers? First, through the knowledge of God. Second, through the love of God. Third, through faith. Fourth, through philanthropic deeds. Fifth, through self-sacrifice. Sixth, through severance from this world. Seventh, through sanctity and holiness. Unless he acquires these forces and attains to these requirements he will surely be depraved of the life that is eternal. But if he possess the knowledge of God, becomes ignited through the fire that is the love of God, witnesses the great and mighty signs of the Kingdom, becomes the cause of love among mankind, and lives in the utmost state and sanctity of holiness, he shall surly attain to second birth, be baptized by the Holy Spirit and enjoy everlasting existence.”
~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Foundations of World Unity
