We, verily, have made music as a ladder for your souls, a means whereby they may be lifted up unto the realm on high…
We could glean, then, that the reason music is so powerful, whether we are conscious of it or not, is that it has an effect on our soul, and that ultimately its purpose is to uplift us.
Baha’u’llah, Baha’i World Faith
A Baha’i Bit
Baha’is accept the validity of each of the founders and prophets of the major world religions, whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization – Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.
During the month of November, Baha’i Blogging is hosting a post-a-day (or so) something related to or inspired by Baha’i Faith. Because so many of you follow both this blog and CATNIPblog Peggy & I will post our “dailies” here and Sunday “retrospectives” on CATNIPblog.com

“Take pride not in love for yourselves but in love for your fellow-creatures. Glory not in love for your country, but in love for all mankind. Let your eye be chaste, your hand faithful, your tongue truthful and your heart enlightened”. The Baha’i Faith

My brother Rick
sent me this reminder about the Hunger Site. The first thing he does when he turns on his computer is to click on
The site includes links to donations per FREE click to causes for:
- Breast cancer
- Animal shelters
- Rain forest preservation
- and more . . .
“The sites show results (About Us) for donations and clicks on a daily basis. Every “drop”/click helps fill the pool! This could be a part of your daily routine when you turn on your computer or log on to the internet. Sponsors provide additional support via purchases on the site (some have very cool, interesting gift ideas!.”
In 10 years Rick has clicked on the links enough times to provide:
- 2500 cups of food to those in need
- 1500 bowls of food to animals in shelters
- preservation of a half-acre of rain forest
- a half hour of therapy for children with autism
- 20+ meals to homeless Veterans
- and more
One click gifting time
love and pride for all mankind
The power is yours
