The kindness of Baha’u’llah can be found in many stories. This is but a sample.
May Bolles, an early pilgrim, heard `Abdu’l-Bahá tell the touching story about a hermit.
“On a freezing journey through the mountains to another prison, His small group met a hermit near a high cave. When Bahá`u’lláh arrived at that spot the hermit knelt down and kissed the dust before His feet, and said to Him: ‘Oh, my Lord, I am a poor man living alone in a cave nearby; but henceforth I shall account myself the happiest of mortals if Thou wilt but come for a moment to my cave and bless it by Thy presence.’ Then Bahá`u’lláh told the man that He would come, not for a moment but for three days, and He bade His followers cast their tents, and await His return.
The poor man was so overcome with joy and gratitude that he was speechless, and led the way in humble silence to his lowly d...

...d to proclaim to all created things ‘verily I am God’; and when I consider my own self, lo, I find it coarser than clay!’
Baha’u’llah ascended in ‘Akka in 1892, His Revelation completed, His Mission fulfilled. His Shrine is considered by Baha’is to be the Holiest Spot on earth. It is located near Akka Israel. Each Baha’i travels there once in his life, if able.
Baha’u’llah has drawn the circle of unity, He has made a design for the uniting of all the peoples’ and for the gathering of them all under the shelter of the tent of universal unity. This is the work of the Divine Bounty, and we must strive with heart and soul until we have the reality of unity in our midst, as we work, so will strength be given unto us.” ‘Abdu’l-Baha cited in
(Adib Taherzadeh, The Revelation of Baha’u’llah v 3, p. xiii)
The sacred is never lost! Religion is a Procession.

- them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heav...

- A huge stag, glowing with the cold, silvery-white light of the night, stands panting and exhausted. He hears something, and quickly bounds away. A minute later, a hunting party, their way lit up by multicolored lanterns and witch lights, comes tearing through the dark Forrest after the stag. They were a wild lot on half wild horses with hounds more than a quarter wolf. The hounds were howling and barking up a storm. The horses hooves were pounding and they neighed and screamed. The hunters and huntresses were dressed in hunting clothes of strange and vibrantly colored fabrics.... [tags: Hunting, Deer, KILL, Arrow]

- Nature or nurture. A question frequently asked but hard to answer or prove. This is where William Golding steps in. He writes a novel about a group of schoolboys stranded on an island, fighting to survive. Instead of acting how they have been taught by society, they turn into a disaster, breaking up into separate groups, having celebrations to hunt pig, and killing each other. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding, inspired by The Coral Island and Paradise Lost, shows the true nature of human beings in a society created by children....

- The idea of rhetoric is exceptionally important in the world of writing, and just like memories, rhetoric is what a paper is forged out of. It helps the building of connections. The connection made to rhetoric in my writing is nearly oblivious, everything I write has been affected by rhetoric in some way. This rhetoric was very obvious in a paper I wrote in my sophomore year of English. Like every English paper I had written in high school, our class read a book, William Golding’s The Lord of the Flies, and were assigned a paper on said book....

- The year is almost over, meaning the time spent growing and learning new linguistic and writing strategies is coming to a close. Looking back on the long journey I have experienced first-hand, I have noticed growth with every piece that I wrote. At times the class was stressful, but it was always an extreme accomplishment to finish a paper and grow and develop as a writer. First semester, I set goals that I felt would be attainable, yet beneficial for the AP exam. The goals I established were to become more creative in my writing, expand my use of rhetorical strategies, and improve my vocabulary.... [tags: Writing, Essay, Linguistics, Piece]

- I am writing in response to the “spring cleaning” of Library that is coming up soon. I have heard that the English Department is currently deciding which videos they should keep in the library. For the videos of Lord of the Flies, I would prefer the school to keep the 1963 version instead of the 1990 version. The 1963 version of the Lord of the Flies would be a worthier choice for the Grade 11 students who study this novel. It follows the novel that William Golding wrote as opposed to the 1990 version which it emphasizes entertainment rather than the actual story.... [tags: essays research papers]

- Lord of the Flies Literature versus Hollywood Many novels are such successful sellers that producers can’t wait to put the story onto the big screen. Most of the time the original novel is much better than the movie because it is able to capture the characters true emotions. In the novel “The Lord of the Flies” William Golding was trying to capture the reader’s imagination. Overall the novel is better then the movie because it has a better description of the characters thoughts and feelings. Symbolically it allows the reader to grasp the concepts that are not relevant throughout the movie.... [tags: Free Essay Writer]

- In the novel, "Lord of the Flies," a group of British boys are left on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere. Throughout the novel, they have conflicts between civilization and savagery, good vs. evil, order vs. chaos, and reason vs. impulse. What would it be like if the boys were replaced by a group of girls. Would they behave the same way they did in the novel. I believe that the girls would act in the same behavior as the boys in all ways because, everyone is installed with evil inside them which is their natural instinct, also because in life there is always a power struggle in all manners, and the outcome with the girls would be similar-since both sexes would plan on getting resc...

- Fun and Murder in Lord of the Flies Lord of the Flies is a story of hardships, death and ultimately, survival. The island on which the boys are on presented many difficulties. In this situation, there was no time for fun and games, work was much more important. The group consisted completely of pre-pubescent young boys and the thing that destroyed their democratic ways was the allure of having lots of fun, swimming, feasts and other enjoyable activities. If the splitting of the groups, i.e when Ralph and Jack went their separate ways, the bloodshed would have been prevented.... [tags: Lord Flies Essays]
