Baha’is are asked to pursue a path of service. When one attempts to pursue this path one is inevitably thrust into situations that demand an open heart. So many of an individual’s moments are only fully perceived by the open heart and those are moments that shape our lives and change our course and plant seeds in the freshly turned soil of the heart. The mind, bewildered by beauty and pain, struggles to follow. During that struggle, reflection occasionally sheds enough light to warm and germinate the seeds buried in the heart. Seeds planted there by those pivotal moments. Expressed, these seeds may flower and understanding blooms. And then, perhaps, much later and God willing, fruit. Baha’is are asked to pursue a path of service and, God willing, understanding blooms.
