I used to run from the past
But the world got spinnin' so fast
I run from the future now
I run as fast as I can
Tryin' to be a simple man
I just want to slow down
“Go on home” - Chris Knight
This quote from Abdu’l-Baha brings up an important aspect that has seemed to have left modern society, let’s bring this back. Let’s think for ourselves please.
God has not intended man to imitate blindly his fathers and ancestors. He has endowed him with mind, or the faculty of reasoning, by the exercise of which he is to investigate and discover the truth, and that which he finds real and true he must accept. He must not be an imitator or blind follower of any soul. He must not rely implicitly upon the opinion of any man without investigation; nay, each soul must seek intelligently and independently, arriving at a real conclusion and bound only by that reality.
– Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace
