"If thine eyes be turned towards mercy, forsake the things that profit thee and cleave unto that which will profit mankind. And if thine eyes be turned towards justice, choose thou for thy neighbour that which thou choosest for thyself."

--Bahá'u'lláh

 

"We ask God to endow human souls with justice so that they may be fair, and may strive to provide for the comfort of all, that each member of humanity may pass his life in the utmost comfort and welfare. Then this material world will become the very paradise of the Kingdom, this elemental earth will be in a heavenly state and all the servants of God will live in the utmost joy, happiness and gladness. We must all strive and concentrate all our thoughts in order that such happiness may accrue to the world of humanity."

–‘Abdu’l-Bahá

 

"Let your aims be common, and your hearts of one accord, and all of you be of one mind, so you may live well together."
--Hinduism, Rig Veda 10.191.2-4

 

 "If you have one hundred people who live together, and if each one cares for the rest, there is One Mind."

 -- Shining Arrows, CROW

 

One of the principles of Community is Unity. The alignment of thoughts in groups of people will cause One Mind to form. One Mind is Unity. Each individual in the community must align their thoughts with what other members are thinking. If all the people think of helping one another, then the community will be service oriented and powerful results will be enjoyed. Having our thoughts aligned within a group will cause our children to experience a positive environment. When they have children, the grandchildren will automatically experience these results also.

 

"The wrong in the world continues to exist just because people talk only of their ideals, and do not strive to put them into practice. If actions took the place of words, the world’s misery would very soon be changed into comfort.

 

A man who does great good, and talks not of it, is on the way to perfection.

 

The man who has accomplished a small good and magnifies it in his speech is worth very little.

 

If I love you, I need not continually speak of my love—you will know without any words. On the other hand if I love you not, that also will you know—and you would not believe me, were I to tell you in a thousand words, that I loved you."

--‘Abdu’l-Bahá

 

"The Holy Spirit will give to man greater powers than these, if only he will strive after the things of the spirit and endeavour to attune his heart to the Divine infinite love. When you love a member of your family or a compatriot, let it be with a ray of the Infinite Love! Let it be in God, and for God! Wherever you find the attributes of God love that person, whether he be of your family or of another. Shed the light of a boundless love on every human being whom you meet, whether of your country, your race, your political party, or of any other nation, colour or shade of political opinion. Heaven will support you while you work in this in-gathering of the scattered peoples of the world beneath the shadow of the almighty tent of unity."

--‘Abdu’l-Bahá

 

"You will be servants of God, who are dwelling near to Him, His divine helpers in the service, ministering to all Humanity. All Humanity! Every human being! never forget this!"

--‘Abdu’l-Bahá

 

To teach is to learn,

To learn is to work,

To work is to serve,

To serve is to love,

To love is to sacrifice,

To sacrifice is to die,

To die is to live,

To live is to strive,

To strive is to rise above

All earthly limitations

And enter the eternal realms.

--‘Abdu’l-Bahá 

 

"The injury of one shall be considered the injury of all; the comfort of each, the comfort of all; the honor of one, the honor of all."

--'Abdu'l-Bahá
