Serve as a Divine Physician

Source: The World Order of Baha’u’llah 

At one time a high official in the federal government of the United States questioned ‘Abdu’l-Baha about the best way to serve his people and his government. The Master had a ready answer: 

‘You can best serve your country . . . if you strive, in your capacity as a citizen of the world, to assist in the eventual application of the principle of federalism underlying the government of your own country to the relationships now existing between the peoples and nations of the world.’

In The Secret of Divine Civilization (The Mysterious Forces of Civilization), `Abdu’l-Baha’s outstanding contribution to the future reorganization of the world, we read the following:

“True civilization will unfurl its banner in the midmost heart of the world whenever a certain number of its distinguished and high-minded sovereigns–the shining exemplars of devotion and determination–shall, for the good and happiness of all mankind, arise, with firm resolve and clear vision, to establish the Cause of Universal Peace. 

They must make the Cause of Peace the object of general consultation, and seek by every means in their power to establish a Union of the nations of the world. They must conclude a binding treaty and establish a covenant, the provisions of which shall be sound, inviolable and definite. 

They must proclaim it to all the world and obtain for it the sanction of all the human race. 

This supreme and noble undertaking–the real source of the peace and well-being of all the world.

We would love to hear from you
