 4 Love Club

A creative expression group to explore love

Guided Imagery

Visual Journaling

  • *Four kinds of love originate from God. These are rays from the Sun of Reality; these are the Breathings of the Holy Spirit; these are the Signs of Reality.

    “The first is the love that flows from God to man . . . Through this love the world of being receives life . . . This love is the origin of all the love in the world of creation.

    “The second is the love that flows from man to God. This is faith, attraction to the Divine . . . This love is the origin of all philanthropy.

    “The third is the love of God towards the Self or Identity of God. This is the transfiguration of His Beauty, the reflection of Himself in the mirror of His creation . . . ..Through one ray of this love all other loves exists.”

    “The fourth is the love of man for man. The love which exists between the hearts of believers is prompted by the ideal of the unity of spirits . . . This love will bring the realization of true accord, the foundation of real unity.”

    From The Divine Art of Living, Baha’i World Faith

      Yup, could schedule workshops in any time configuration. Have not done a workshop in almost a year now. Just haven’t had the energy. But I’ve not given up doing them as I so enjoy creating them and the people who attend. I’ll keep you posted.
