Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Kamál (Perfection), 13 Kalimát (Words) 174 Badi - Monday, July 24, 2017 CE
"O ye beloved of the Lord! The Kingdom of God is founded upon equity and justice, and also upon mercy, compassion, and kindness to every living soul. Strive ye then with all your heart to treat compassionately all humankind—except for those who have some selfish, private motive, or some disease of the soul. Kindness cannot be shown the tyrant, the deceiver, or the thief, because, far from awakening them to the error of their ways, it maketh them to continue in their perversity as before. No matter how much kindliness ye may expend upon the liar, he will but lie the more, for he believeth you to be deceived, while ye understand him but too well, and only remain silent out of your extreme compassion."
‘Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Baha1
Equity, justice, mercy, compassion, and kindness is something we can really use today. The problem is that it appears a lot of selfish people are in power, and, 'Abdu'l-Baha says, these attribute don't work with them. I can testify to this because I've dealt with selfish people and they will simply continue to use you no matter how kind you are to them.

This month I have had to reboot my router three time. Once today and three times on July 15, I'll have to keep an eye on this issue because it may mean I'll have to get a new router. I think that's about $60.00 which could be difficult to get. I'll say some special prayers for this and leave the situation in God's hands.
