One of these days I will get an essay finished for Baha'i the Way. One of these days. In the meantime...
Continuing my series on good things Baha'is are doing, here is a beautiful video about a project in Cambodia. I can't actually see it on my screen embedded here (I have an old system). So if you can't see it either follow this link to YouTube.
While we're chatting here...I have a couple questions/ requests too. Long ago I picked up a supposed quote from the Bab, "The mystery of sacrifice is there is no sacrifice." Now I can't find a source. Does anybody know if it is authentic or has another documented origin?
Also, if anybody knows of any articles, essays, books, passages of scripture, etc. pertinent to the subject of Baha'i theology of body, illness, or disability I would be grateful for the tips. You can mention them in a comment or email me at ms leaf at wildblue dot net.
I'm a one-time Bahá'í who, due to a complex medical saga and big physical limitations, spends a great deal of time lying around thinking about things. No Bahá'í subject is off-limits to challenge here, but I intend to affirm whatever I can. I explain my approach a bit here. I can't type much; so if I don't respond to comments think not that you are being ignored; think rather that you are getting the last word. If you are not intimate with Bahá'í arcana and want to know what I'm talking about, www.bahai.us is a reasonable starting place. My comments here are primarily about the Haifan or mainstream Baha'i tradition because that is what I know about. There are many other kinds of Baha'is, organized and free-range, and I think all kinds should recognize each other. If you want to know more about me I suggest reading my other blog Heaven in My Foot. I can be reached at p gilman at my fairpoint dot net.
