Wednesday Poem and Gratitude List
‘Idál (Justice), 8 Núr (Light) 176 B.E. - Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Submitted to "Spiritual Newsletter (June 12, 2019): "Baha'ullah, the latest in the line of divine prophets or messengers, encourages individuals to search for truth independently. Encourages us to ask questions, and to use our minds to find the answers. As a Baha'i, I recognize the divine foundation of all religions. God has sent different divine messengers to assist humanity in both its spiritual and material progress. Some of the messengers that we know about are Abraham, Moses, Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster, Christ, Muhammad, the Bab, and Baha'u'llah."

Jonah Inside the Belly of the Whale1

Averse
to obey God's command
darkness envelop

the being
swallowed by the leviathan
of self.

Stomach acids digest
self's outer layer,
leave,

the inner kernel
on its knees
begging for salvation.
