Baha'i has a Unity Spirit
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Here's a great line from the funny movie "My Big Greek Wedding" from the mother: "The man is the head of the household and the woman is the neck. And she can turn that head around anytime."
Our Baha'i speaker this Sunday was wonderful, Dr. Carey Murphy. Many of us really appreciated something she quoted from the founder of their faith, Baha'u'llah: "There should be compulsory education for all children. If for some reason it is not affordable to educate both children, the girl should be chosen to be educated. Women will be the reason the world saves itself."
!!!how about that!!!
There were several "ah's" that were audible in the church after that comment. He made that comment in the 1800's, in Iran!
Unity honors the divine masculine and divine feminine in our consciousness. We have both aspects to balance. The masculine has far outweighed the feminine in our world, for good and sometimes not so good, and it is long past time that it is balanced by the feminine divinity.
It's amazing that a man in the Mideast had that insight so long ago!
What do you think?
