Meditations on Unity

The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. 

- Bahá’u’lláh

We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colours and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don't share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive. I will not blind myself and say that my black brother is not different from me. I will not blind myself and say that my brown sister is not different from me. But my black brother is he as much as I am me. But my brown sister is she as much as I am me.
- C. JoyBell C.

I say to you all, once again -- in the light of Lord Voldemort's return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort's gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.

O Divine Providence! This assemblage is composed of Thy friends who are attracted to Thy beauty and are set ablaze by the fire of Thy love. Turn these souls into heavenly angels, resuscitate them through the breath of Thy Holy Spirit, grant them eloquent tongues and resolute hearts, bestow upon them heavenly power and merciful susceptibilities, cause them to become the promulgators of the oneness of mankind and the cause of love and concord in the world of humanity, so that the perilous darkness of ignorant prejudice may vanish through the light of the Sun of Truth, this dreary world may become illumined, this material realm may absorb the rays of the world of spirit, these different colors may merge into one color and the melody of praise may rise to the kingdom of Thy sanctity.

Verily, Thou art the Omnipotent and the Almighty!

- ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide. If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.
- T.H. White


One God, many faces.
One family, many races.
One truth, many paths.
One heart, many complexions.
One light, many reflections.
One world, many imperfections.
We are all one,
But many.

The incomparable Friend saith: The path to freedom hath been outstretched; hasten ye thereunto. The wellspring of wisdom is overflowing; quaff ye therefrom. Say: O well-beloved ones! The tabernacle of unity hath been raised; regard ye not one another as strangers. Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Verily I say, whatsoever leadeth to the decline of ignorance and the increase of knowledge hath been, and will ever remain, approved in the sight of the Lord of creation. Say: O people! Walk ye neath the shadow of justice and truthfulness and seek ye shelter within the tabernacle of unity.

- Bahá’u’lláh

This is my country, that is your country; these are the conceptions of narrow souls - to the liberal minded the whole world is a family.

Most Gracious Lord,  

Master, Messiah, and Savior of humanity, 

We greet Thee in all humility. 

Thou art the First Cause and the Last Effect, 

The Divine Light and the Spirit of Guidance, 

Alpha and Omega. 

Thy Light is in all forms, 

Thy Love in all beings: 

In a loving mother, in a kind father, 

in an innocent child, in a helpful friend, 

and in an inspiring teacher. 

Allow us to recognize Thee 

in all Thy holy names and forms, 

as Rama, as Krishna, as Shiva, as Buddha, 

Let us know Thee as Abraham, as Solomon, 

as Zarathustra, as Moses, as Jesus, as Mohammed, 

and in many other names and forms known and 

unknown to the World. 

We adore Thy past, Thy Presents deeply enlightens our 

being, and we look for thy blessing in the future. 



Let the star of the Divine Light, shining in Thy heart 

be reflected in the hearts of thy devotees. 

May the Message of God reach far and wide, 

illuminating and making the whole humanity as  

one single brotherhood in the Fatherhood of God.
