Decisions~Daily Prompt

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Brainwave.”

The best decision I ever made was to join the Baha’i Faith at 14 years of age. Forty three years later and I’ve never had a moment of regret. It has brought meaning and understanding for me of a world that has strayed far from her Lord. I value the respect that Baha’u’llah counselled us to have for one another by forbidding proselytizing through instituting the principle of independent investigation of truth. Of course we can and should share if someone is interested. That same respect was shown when ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Center of the Covenant, told the world that if any person of any faith is following that religion to the best of their ability then they are already a Baha’i. All religions are one. Mankind is one and there is only one God.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I’m an agnostic, but one thing I appreciate about the people I’ve met of the Ba’hai faith is that they seem to be less prone to judge others negatively for not seeing eye to eye with them regarding religion. Tolerance is so important.
