FAITHfully Yours – Anne Frank & Reflection

 “One hour’s reflection is preferable to seventy years of pious worship

Baha’u’llah

“How noble and good everyone could be, if every evening before falling asleep, they were to recall to their minds the events of the while day and consider exactly what has been good and bad. Then, without realising it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn’t know it must learn and find by experience that: “A quiet conscience makes one strong!”

Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank: The Revised Critical Edition

Cat ‘n Mouse journaling by Peggy

“Prayer is like the spirit and material means are like the human hand. The spirit operateth through the instrumentality of the hand. 

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the Baha’i World Faith

One Human Family 

The conviction that we belong to one human family is at the heart of the Bahá’í Faith. The principle of the oneness of humankind is “the pivot round which the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh revolve…”

  1. “The spirit operateth through the instrumentality of the hand.”
    Certainly Judith and Peggy’s spirits are evidenced in their drawings and art.
    Amen!

      1. I think all children of war are more mature than other kids, but also sadly more damaged. Anne Frank was especially wise. Have you read the work of Hannah Szenes, (sometimes written as Senesh) only a little older than Anne Frank when she was killed?

        1. Shari,
          It’s a bit scary and very sad that so many children grow up in war zones – whether it be inner city, whole countries or populations under siege. Their trauma is unimaginable.
          I’m not familiar with Hannah Szenes. I’ll check it out.
