About the Book

The prerequisite for being a Bahá’í is to attempt to live a life that is in accordance with the teachings of that faith. In the human condition, one must have a logical explanation for a principle that lends itself to being lived. This is an attempt at stating thoughts in relation to an exalted theme in terms of what one might perceive, given that one has to have logic to the effort of endeavoring to live the ideal. These explanations are not conclusive and may apply for a certain period and a certain kind of person, and they constitute the writer’s desire to extend his belief to that which can actually be practiced. Spirituality is not imaginary thought but a practicality. The writer acknowledges that the Creator gave us minds to investigate phenomena because they are understandable and did not create—pardon the expression—for the mere purpose of confusing the minds. It is a perception and a belief that He wants us to know and worship Him. As He is eternal, we must strive to advance eternally toward a fuller understanding of all lessons, admitting that we are human and can do only what is humanly possible at any time.
