Why do we need religion?
True Divine Religion, not something created for the benefit and power of a particular group of people!
We are here to recognize and cultivate our Divine Nobility. We are also here to recognize our unity and oneness and to help each other achieve our life purpose. We have all been given different Divine gifts and strengths to contribute to the betterment of this world and use our talents to serve and to help each other. This means instead of focusing on making money at a job that we do not like, perhaps we should do some soul searching to see what we are passionate about and love to do. That will be a good guide to finding our life purpose. Money is energy and will flow in when we are relaxed, joyful, open, and connected to our Divine Creator and our spiritual lifeline. We only thrive when we stay connected through meditation, prayer, and service.
“We are seekers for water no matter from what rock it may gush forth. We are in need of fruit in whatsoever orchard it may be ripened. We long for rain it matters not which cloud pours it down.”
(Abdu’l-Bahá, Foundations of World Unity, p. 16)
“The holy Manifestations are the ideal gardeners of human souls, the divine cultivators of human hearts. The world of existence is but a jungle of disorder and confusion, a state of nature producing nothing but fruitless, useless trees. The ideal gardeners train these wild uncultivated human trees, cause them to become fruitful, water, and cultivate them day by day so that they adorn the world of existence and continue to flourish in the utmost beauty.”
(Abdu’l-Bahá, Foundations of World Unity, p. 111)
