1. I hope this is the appropriate place to post the following. I try not to get all caught up in all the stuff that’s going down in (and outside of!) the world on all levels. Time to pull focus and get a general picture. To this end I share the following:

    “The days are approaching their end, and yet the people of the earth are seen sunk in grievous heedlessness, and lost in manifest error. Great, great is the Cause! The hour is approaching when the most great convulsion will have appeared. I swear by Him Who is the Truth! It shall cause separation to afflict everyone, even those who circle around Me. Say: O concourse of the heedless! I swear by God! The day is approaching when its [civilization’s] flame will devour the cities and when the Tongue of Grandeur will proclaim: ‘The Kingdom is God’s, the Almighty, the All-Praised!

    O ye that are bereft of understanding! A severe trial pursueth you, and will suddenly overtake you. Bestir yourselves, that haply it may pass and inflict no harm upon you.” “O ye peoples of the world! Know, verily, that an unforeseen calamity is following you, and that grievous retribution awaiteth you. Think not the deeds ye have committed have been blotted from My sight.

    And when the appointed hour has come, there shall suddenly appear that which shall cause the limbs of mankind to quake. Then, and only then, will the Divine Standard be unfurled, and the Nightingale of Paradise warble its melody.”

    – Baha’u’llah
