Contemplating Non-Violence
Istiqlál (Independence), 17 Bahá (Splendor) 175 B.E. - Friday, April 6, 2018

"Sanctify your ears from the idle talk of them that are the symbols of denial and the exponents of violence and anger."
Baha’u’llah, 12

Contemplating Non-Violence

Human beings
are not beast of the field
that we should maim and kill one-another.

Violence, anger, and hatred
separates the descendants of Adam and Eve
into armed camps
set on destroying each other
because some human created
concept of superiority.

Humanity is a single species,
God is a single divine essence
with many names,
and all religions
have been sent down to humanity
from the same Divine Essence
through different prophets
or manifestations--
each of which
has revealed prescriptions
to assist the human race to advance
both materially and spiritually.
