Bahá'í meditation to reveal insights:
"It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit.
In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers:
the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed."
‘Abdu’l‑Bahá, Paris Talks, 54.
Insightful article on the Baha'i Calendar:
Excerpt from The Universal House of Justice, Letter to the Bahá'í World, 10 July 2014:
“The adoption of a New Calendar in each dispensation is a symbol of the power of Divine Revelation to reshape human perception of material, social, and spiritual reality. Through it, sacred moments are distinguished, humanity’s place in time and space reimagined, and the rhythm of life recast."
Bahá'í prayer to reveal insights:
Cast upon this poor and desolate creature, O my Lord, the glance of Thy wealth,
and flood his heart with the beams of Thy knowledge,
that he may apprehend the verities of the unseen world,
and discover the mysteries of Thy heavenly realm,
and perceive the signs and tokens of Thy kingdom,
and behold the manifold revelations of this earthly life all set forth
before the face of Him Who is the Revealer of Thine own Self.
Direct, then, his eyes, O my God, towards the horizon of Thy loving-kindness,
and make steadfast his heart in its attachment to Thee,
and unloose his tongue to praise Thee,
and make him able to hold fast the cord of Thy love,
and to cling to the hem of Thy bounteousness,
and to proclaim Thy name amidst Thy creatures,
and to recount Thy virtues throughout Thy realm,
in such wise that no obstacle will deter him from turning to Thy name,
and no veil shut him out from Thee,
in Whose hand is the dominion of utterance and the kingdom of all names and attributes!
Bahá’u’lláh, Prayers and Meditations, XXXVIII.
Every day, in the morning when arising you should compare today with yesterday and see in what condition you are. If you see your belief is stronger and your heart more occupied with God and your love increased and your freedom from the world greater then thank God and ask for the increase of these qualities. You must begin to pray and repent for all that you have done which is wrong and you must implore and ask for help and assistance that you may become better than yesterday so that you may continue to make progress.
