Saturday Poem and Gratitude List
Jalál (Glory), 15 ‘Izzat (Might) 176 B.E. - Saturday, September 21, 2019

Spiritual Happiness

"Spiritual happiness is eternal and unfathomable. This kind of happiness appeareth in one's soul with the love of God and suffereth one to attain to the virtues and perfections of the world of humanity.

Therefore, endeavor as much as thou canst in order to illumine the lamp of thy heart with the light of love."

Bahá’í Writings

The Love of God1

It is the love of God
that encourages us
to develop spiritual perfections
and virtues.

It is the love of God
that ignites
the lamp of the soul
with spiritual happiness.
