O SON OF MAN! My calamity is My providence, outwardly it is fire and vengeance, but inwardly it is light and mercy. Hasten thereunto that thou mayest become an eternal light and an immortal spirit. This is My command unto thee, do thou observe it.
O SOHN DES MENSCHEN! Mein Trübsal ist meine Vorsehung. Äußerlich ist sie Feuer und Züchtigung, zuinnerst aber Licht und Gnade. Eile ihr entgegen, auf daß du ein ewiges Licht und ein unsterblicher Geist werdest. Dies ist mein Gebot an dich, beachte es!

Here I am with Bette a local Baha’i from Saint Cloud Minnesota. Bette is sharing what she feels is the significance of Baha’u’llah’s 200 year anniversary of His Birth, and some of His fundamental teachings.
Please share some comments down below, what you and your community is doing to prepare for the Bicentenary coming up soon!
Baha’is all over the world are about to celebrate one of the most auspicious days of their cherished Faith. October of 2017 signalizes the 200th year anniversary of the birth of the Founder of their precious Faith, Baha’u’llah. He announced, roughly 150 years ago, that the Divine-will for today is the oneness of humanity and unity of all religions, races and people. If the world’s religious leaders and kings, such as Pope Pius IX, Napoleon III and Naser al-Din Shah, had listened to Baha’u’llah’s counsels He gave in scores upon scores of letters, then bigotry, racism and utter hatred among people today would have ceased to exist.
I moved to Minnesota on August 2, 2017, for getting my Masters degree in Journalism at St Cloud State University and teaching the Baha’i Faith. This video is a short documentary of my travel from California to Nevada, from Nevada to Idaho, from Idaho to Montana, from Montana to North Dakota and from North Dakota to Minnesota my destination!
Baha’u’llah’s Writings I read in the video is found here: http://www.bahai.org/r/927993815

I am moving to Minnesota for serving the Cause of Baha’u’llah and for Graduate School in Strategic Mass Communication at St Cloud State University.
This is the first of a series of videos that I will make to share my long journey and to read some of Baha’u’llah’s Creative Word at the end of every video and reflect on them!
O YE PEOPLE THAT HAVE MINDS TO KNOW AND EARS TO HEAR!
The first call of the Beloved is this: O mystic nightingale! Abide not but in the rose garden of the spirit. O messenger of the Solomon of love! Seek thou no shelter except in the Sheba of the well-beloved, and O immortal phoenix! dwell not save on the mount of faithfulness. Therein is thy habitation, if on the wings of thy soul thou soarest to the realm of the infinite and seekest to attain thy goal.
(The Hidden Words of Baha’u’llah)
