Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Istijlal (Majesty) 19 ʻAẓamat (Grandeur) 178 B.E. - Thursday, June 3, 2021
On the first Thankful Thursday in June 2021,
I am thankful ...
...for the merit badges I received between May 27 and June 2.
...that I am able to send mail from my cox.com e-mail account again.
...for fresh brewed coffee on this beautiful June morning
...that my Bank of America checking account isn't overdrawn this week.
...for the prayers revealed by The Bab, Baha'u'llah, and 'Abdu'l-Baha.
I submitted the following to "Spiritual Newsletter (May 26, 2021)" : "I believe in Progressive Revelation, that is, that God sends divine messengers or prophets, at periodic intervals, to assist humanity in its path toward God. Each of these messengers were conduits for the Holy Spirit, and each brought teachings or revealed sacred scriptures that assisted humanity in its spiritual and material evolution. Some of the divine messengers that we know of are Abraham, Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ, Buddha, Muhammad, the Bab, and Baha'u'llah. The Bab and Baha'u'llah are the latest in this line of messengers. God will send another messenger in, at least, a thousand years to continue to assist humanity in its progress."
