“Be not content in showing friendship in words alone. Let your heart burn with loving-kindness for all who cross your path.”
Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith
Loving-kindness Treat ME, by Peggy
A Nosh of Baha’i
The Baha’i Faith is the world’s second-most widespread religion after Christianity, spanning the globe and working to unite it. Baha’is have no clergy or churches, gathering together in democratically-led communities and welcoming everyone.
The millions of Baha’is in the world come from every ethnicity, nationality, tribe, age, racial group, religious background and economic and social class.
Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life.
During the month of November, Baha’i Blogging is hosting a post-a-day-or-so something related to or inspired by 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
Remember the story of the boy who found $20 and gave it to a soldier? This is the follow-up.
Watch to the end of the video report and see how loving-kindness multiplies.
It is all too easy to sink nowadays into abyss of despair when witnessing the cruelties and atrocities happening in so many parts of the world. I absolutely believe that love and compassion will win out . . . when we extinguish our fear and ego.
Thank you Linda!
Dear ALL My Best Friends,
You human’s have no shame and warped senses of humor. We’d be fed up with you if we weren’t fed by you.
On April 1st for “fun” you play terrible jokes on each other, too terrible to mention.
On the other paw, We understand that you have many limitations (as evidenced by the fact that you are not easily trainable) and do the best you can.
Ozzy & Duffy
I propose that April 1st from here on be declared
I Ain’t No Fool Day.
Here are the 3 rules for I Ain’t No Fool Day
- Only Humane acts of loving-kindness are allowed. NOTHING CRUEL or MISLEADING.
- You are to spread love. If you aren’t sure how to do this anymore watch us.
- You are to be grateful that we know how to give and receive love (and continually model it for you hoping you will catch on) by rewarding us profusely with our favorite treats.
Lickingly LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL yours,
P.S. We’re waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiting for #3
