Motivational Monday: Thoughts of a World Citizen
Kamál (Perfection), 10 Jamál (Beauty) 175 B.E. - Monday, May 7, 2018

"It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world."
Baha’u’llah,1

Despite the fact that I haven't visited any country outside of the United States of America, I still feel like a world citizen. I feel this way because anywhere I would go on the planet, I would find other Baha'is, members of my spiritual family. I may not ever leave the United States, but that is alright because here I can find people of every religious and nonreligious background who have found a spiritual home in the Baha'i Faith. When I first declared my belief in Baha'u'llah, I was somewhat shy about meeting people of different backgrounds. However, after praying and working on this issues I am dealing with it.


I'm a citizen of Earth,
I'm a citizen of the world,
humanity my race.

Facebook Status Update

A friend of mine once told me, that the things she worried about never happen. The things that did happen were so far off the wall that she never worried about them.

Good morning coffee
look really hot today.
