The world today

When I look at the state of the world today…my heart breaks.

My heart aches for our generation and the generations to come.

My heart breaks.

    Yes, we hear again the discerning cry of the feeling heart, and the torment of generations of loving parents throughout time. For this insight did the Preacher declare in the great Jewish Tanakh, “All flesh is grass.” Nevertheless, the more recent Scripture of Baha’u’llah declares “This is the Day whereon the Ocean of God’s mercy hath been manifested unto men, the Day in which the Day Star of His loving-kindness hath shed its radiance upon them, the Day in which the clouds of His bountiful favor have overshadowed the whole of mankind. Now is the time to cheer and refresh the down-cast through the invigorating breeze of love and fellowship, and the living waters of friendliness and charity.”
    What could be the source of this optimism? “The long ages of infancy and childhood, through which the human race had to pass, have receded into the background. Humanity is now experiencing the commotions invariably associated with the most turbulent stage of its evolution, the stage of adolescence, when the impetuosity of youth and its vehemence reach their climax, and must gradually be superseded by the calmness, the wisdom, and the maturity that characterize the stage of manhood.”
    Never did humanity wish to evolve beyond the family unit. With vigor it defended the rightness of the tribe. With what intensity it built and tried to maintain the city-state empires. Only the power of God could have moved us to nationhood. And now the twin forces of disintegration and integration must impel our evolution into a world commonwealth. As we resisted prior growth, so do we now resist continuing evolution. As humanity matures, great destruction accompanies our clinging to such outworn shibboleths as xenophobic racism, blind nationalism, religious fanaticism, economic havism and inhuman sexism. Nevertheless, we have no choice but to inherit what has long been promised us: the oneness of humanity in a global process towards permanent peace. Some of us work unwittingly on the destruction of what stands in the way of progress. Others work deliberately for integration. Altho’ progress often seems slow, and great suffering ensues from the scourge of delay, we nevertheless stave off despair with manifold assurances such as this: “Let not the happenings of the world sadden you. I swear by God! The sea of joy yearneth to attain your presence, for every good thing hath been created for you, and will, according to the needs of the times, be revealed unto you.” –Baha’u’llah
    I, with ardent love, hope and long for the quick burnish of your spirit, so that you continue to uplift my world with your insights and hopes. I hold out my hands to raise up your heart. Rise up, O rise up and flee the sadness of these scenes. Gladness beckons.

    I think you should let the world go screw itself and focus on things to do….
