Baha’i Sabbath, Kalimat (Words) 14, 170 Baha’i Era (7/26/2013)

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Know thou, moreover, that the Word of God—exalted be His glory—is higher and far superior to that which the senses can perceive, for it is sanctified from any property or substance. It transcendeth the limitations of known elements and is exalted above all the essential and recognized substances. It became manifest without any syllable or sound and is none but the Command of God which pervadeth all created things. It hath never been withheld from the world of being. It is God’s all-pervasive grace, from which all grace doth emanate. It is an entity far removed above all that hath been and shall be.

We are loath to enlarge on this subject, inasmuch as the unbelievers have inclined their ears towards Us in order to hear that which might enable them to cavil against God, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting. And since they are unable to attain to mysteries of knowledge and wisdom from what hath been unravelled by the Source of divine splendour, they rise in protest and burst into clamour. But it is true to say that they object to that which they comprehend, not to the expositions given by the Expounder, nor the truths imparted by the One true God, the Knower of things unseen. Their objections, one and all, turn upon themselves, and I swear by thy life that they are devoid of understanding.

The Guardian’s Fireside Message

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

“O Lord! Open Thou the door. Provide the means, prepare the way, make safe the path.

That we may be guided to those souls, whose hearts are prepared for Thy Cause,

and that they may be guided to us. Verily,

Thou art the Merciful, the Most Bountiful, the All-Powerful!”


Dear friends,

The full, on-line fireside series is now available free of price on both YouTube and At at the top there is also a purple button quick-link to

The YouTube Playlist can be found at this link:

These firesides have been and will always be free of price for the safety, security, and salvation of the people. They are not the Baha’i Faith but contain the proofs and evidence for the Baha’i Faith. Where Judaism is the root, and Christianity is the branch, the Baha’i Faith is the leaf, flower, and fruit of the same tree.

The mission of the living Davidic King–entitled the Guardian of the Baha’i Faith–who is the irremovable member for life of the Universal House of Justice of Baha’ullah ( the executive branch (see Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha, p. 15) is to unite all the people of the world. This can only be accomplished when the man-made veils of separation and division are removed and the people are able to attain to their own personal and independent understanding of God as they know and experience that Divine Reality in the inner temple of the reality of their own heart, mind, and soul. This is the science of the love of God, which all can learn, but cannot be taught. As all draw closer to the real Center of Being, all naturally grow closer to one another. Thus the Oneness of Humanity is established upon the firm foundation of JUSTICE–the most great Justice for all–justice meaning seeing the truth with our own eyes and knowing with our own direct and immediate knowledge and not through that of our neighbor as defined by Baha’u’llah in the second Hidden Word:

O SON OF SPIRIT! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.

This Unity of human beings–therefore is a Unity in Diversity. Thus the individual and society of the group are dually transformed in a single moment of spiritual education and rapture. While each person is sovereign in their own private relationship with God and the Divine Reality within their own being, this inner reality of the soul–only through the power of the Covenant of God–then corresponds to the outer reality of the Divine and everlasting Kingdom (Davidic) established on earth as it is in heaven and is perfect social application, true faith, wisdom, purity, and spirituality.

Only those who God has Himself chosen to allow to, will have the veils of separation and division removed and become freed from outer forms and imitations. These souls are able to draw very close to the Center of Being both inwardly and outwardly. They are the result of the divine and spiritual process of everlasting life in eternal paradise mirrored on earth via the knowledge of the reality of the Universal Manifestation of God in this Day, Baha’u’llah, and the successorship of His Covenant upon the throne of King David. The successorship of Baha’u’llah’s Covenant upon the throne of King David is a mighty power and supreme potency hidden and concealed within the world of being and is the Center of Unity and direction of the point of adoration amongst the people. Through this successorship, the differences that are apparent in the world of humanity will resolve themselves.

It is my personal hope that all the people of the world will be free from the clutter that fills their minds in any form and be able to see the truth for themselves with their own eyes. It is not my prayer that all should be Baha’i. There are over six million Baha’i in the world, most outside the Covenant and we can see what little good that is doing. But it is my prayer that each individual person should be free from all indoctrination, bunk ideas, and clutter and see the truth directly and immediately from their own perspective, their own unique point of view, and personal vantage point. When this prayer is answered, of course the people will see the truth about Baha’u’llah and the true Universal House of Justice ( with the living descendant of King David as its president as those are true and real. But none of that will matter one wit, as long as the majority remains blindly following anyone, or any group, or any ideology. All codification comes between man and God. The pure relationship between lover and Beloved must be established in the hearts, minds and souls of the people. That is a private, personal choice. Baha’u’llah affirms in the Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, #LXXV:

For the faith of no man can be conditioned by any one except himself.”

Thus only the pure of heart can turn to God in and of themselves. This fireside series is an aid and assistance to remove the clutter. As Christianity is the largest, most corrupt, hijacked, bunk religion separated from Reality, this fireside series targets the theologies, doctrines, dogmas and creeds, prevalent among the Christian people of the West who are duped by their priest craft and politicians to wage war, steal oil, and drop the nuclear bombs–all against the real wishes and loving desires of Jesus Christ–yet do that in his name for the almighty dollar!?! Thus Jesus died for those sins so we could be able to recognize the coming of the potency of the “Everlasting Father” seated upon “David’s throne” (Is. 9:6-7) in Baha’ullah and His son ‘Abdu’l-Baha after Him. As in the body when the impediment is removed the body heals itself. No doctor ever healed anyone. They simply remove the impediment, clean the wound, and the body heals itself.

Thus through these firesides online, we pray the impediment is removed from both individuals and groups. We pray that the personal and group wounds are cleaned, and that the body of humanity will then be able to heal itself, coming together in love and affiliation in the divine and everlasting Kingdom that is now established since 2001. We pray it will become an everlasting reality of love and light for all people–millions and billions–and not just the handful of lovers–thousands and thousands–that ardently work without ceasing day and night along with their fellow believer and equal, the descendant of king David, that God has purposed in the world today to help bring about this great work.

When the impediment of slander, calumny and lies is removed, the Unity of Human beings in their diversity will result: as the body of God, the body of the spiritual reality of human beings heals itself!

In El Abha,

Your servant,

Neal Chase,

Guardian of the Baha’i Faith

The Great Being saith: The heaven of statesmanship is made luminous and resplendent by the brightness of the light of these blessed words which hath dawned from the dayspring of the Will of God: It behoveth every ruler to weigh his own being every day in the balance of equity and justice and then to judge between men and counsel them to do that which would direct their steps unto the path of wisdom and understanding. This is the cornerstone of statesmanship and the essence thereof. From these words every enlightened man of wisdom will readily perceive that which will foster such aims as the welfare, security and protection of mankind and the safety of human lives. Were men of insight to quaff their fill from the ocean of inner meanings which lie enshrined in these words and become acquainted therewith, they would bear witness to the sublimity and the excellence of this utterance. If this lowly one were to set forth that which he perceiveth, all would testify unto God’s consummate wisdom. The secrets of statesmanship and that of which the people are in need lie enfolded within these words. This lowly servant earnestly entreateth the One true God—exalted be His glory—to illumine the eyes of the people of the world with the splendour of the light of wisdom that they, one and all, may recognize that which is indispensable in this day.

The Great Being saith: Human utterance is an essence which aspireth to exert its influence and needeth moderation. As to its influence, this is conditional upon refinement which in turn is dependent upon hearts which are detached and pure. As to its moderation, this hath to be combined with tact and wisdom as prescribed in the Holy Scriptures and Tablets.

Every word is endowed with a spirit, therefore the speaker or expounder should carefully deliver his words at the appropriate time and place, for the impression which each word maketh is clearly evident and perceptible. The Great Being saith: One word may be likened unto fire, another unto light, and the influence which both exert is manifest in the world. Therefore an enlightened man of wisdom should primarily speak with words as mild as milk, that the children of men may be nurtured and edified thereby and may attain the ultimate goal of human existence which is the station of true understanding and nobility. And likewise He saith: One word is like unto springtime causing the tender saplings of the rose-garden of knowledge to become verdant and flourishing, while another word is even as a deadly poison. It behoveth a prudent man of wisdom to speak with utmost leniency and forbearance so that the sweetness of his words may induce everyone to attain that which befitteth man’s station.

O friend of mine! The Word of God is the king of words and its pervasive influence is incalculable. It hath ever dominated and will continue to dominate the realm of being. The Great Being saith: The Word is the master key for the whole world, inasmuch as through its potency the doors of the hearts of men, which in reality are the doors of heaven, are unlocked. No sooner had but a glimmer of its effulgent splendour shone forth upon the mirror of love than the blessed word ‘I am the Best-Beloved’ was reflected therein. It is an ocean inexhaustible in riches, comprehending all things. Every thing which can be perceived is but an emanation therefrom. High, immeasurably high is this sublime station, in whose shadow moveth the essence of loftiness and splendour, wrapt in praise and adoration.

Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived him of that which he doth inherently possess. Through a word proceeding out of the mouth of God he was called into being; by one word more he was guided to recognize the Source of his education; by yet another word his station and destiny were safeguarded. The Great Being saith: Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom. If any man were to meditate on that which the Scriptures, sent down from the heaven of God’s holy Will, have revealed, he would readily recognize that their purpose is that all men shall be regarded as one soul, so that the seal bearing the words ‘The Kingdom shall be God’s’ may be stamped on every heart, and the light of Divine bounty, of grace, and mercy may envelop all mankind. The One true God, exalted be His glory, hath wished nothing for Himself. The allegiance of mankind profiteth Him not, neither doth its perversity harm Him. The Bird of the Realm of Utterance voiceth continually this call: ‘All things have I willed for thee, and thee, too, for thine own sake.’ If the learned and worldly-wise men of this age were to allow mankind to inhale the fragrance of fellowship and love, every understanding heart would apprehend the meaning of true liberty, and discover the secret of undisturbed peace and absolute composure. Were the earth to attain this station and be illumined with its light it could then be truly said of it: ‘Thou shall see in it no hollows or rising hills.’

Holy Day, The Martyrdom of the Bab, Rahmat 16, 170 B.E. (7/9/2013)

It would indeed be no exaggeration to say that nowhere in the whole compass of the world’s religious literature, except in the Gospels, do we find any record relating to the death of any of the religion-founders of the past comparable to the martyrdom suffered by the Prophet of Shíráz. So strange, so inexplicable a phenomenon, attested by eye-witnesses, corroborated by men of recognized standing, and acknowledged by government as well as unofficial historians among the people who had sworn undying hostility to the Bábí Faith, may be truly regarded as the most marvelous manifestation of the unique potentialities with which a Dispensation promised by all the Dispensations of the past had been endowed. The passion of Jesus Christ, and indeed His whole public ministry, alone offer a parallel to the Mission and death of the Báb, a parallel which no student of comparative religion can fail to perceive or ignore. In the youthfulness and meekness of the Inaugurator of the Bábí Dispensation; in the extreme brevity and turbulence of His public ministry; in the dramatic swiftness with which that ministry moved towards its climax; in the apostolic order which He instituted, and the primacy which He conferred on one of its members; in the boldness of His challenge to the time-honored conventions, rites and laws which had been woven into the fabric of the religion He Himself had been born into; in the rôle which an officially recognized and firmly entrenched religious hierarchy played as chief instigator of the outrages which He was made to suffer; in the indignities heaped upon Him; in the suddenness of His arrest; in the interrogation to which He was subjected; in the derision poured, and the scourging inflicted, upon Him; in the public affront He sustained; and, finally, in His ignominious suspension before the gaze of a hostile multitude—in all these we cannot fail to discern a remarkable similarity to the distinguishing features of the career of Jesus Christ.

These human creatures are even as children, they are brash and unconcerned. These children must be reared with infinite, loving care, and tenderly fostered in the embraces of mercy, so that they may taste the spiritual honey-sweetness of God’s love; that they may become like unto candles shedding their beams across this darksome world, and may clearly perceive what blazing crowns of glory the Most Great Name, the Ancient Beauty, hath set on the brows of His beloved, what bounties He hath bestowed on the hearts of those He holdeth dear, what a love He hath cast into the breasts of humankind, and what treasures of friendship He hath made to appear amongst all men.

O God, my God! Aid Thou Thy trusted servants to have loving and tender hearts. Help them to spread, amongst all the nations of the earth, the light of guidance that cometh from the Company on high. Verily Thou art the Strong, the Powerful, the Mighty, the All-Subduing, the Ever-Giving. Verily Thou art the Generous, the Gentle, the Tender, the Most Bountiful.

Abdu’l-Baha’-Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha’ #7

A World Superstate

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Over sixty [now over 120] years ago, in His Tablet to Queen Victoria, Bahá’u’lláh, addressing “the concourse of the rulers of the earth,” revealed the following:

“Take ye counsel together, and let your concern be only for that which profiteth mankind and bettereth the condition thereof…. Regard the world as the human body which, though created whole and perfect, has been afflicted, through divers causes, with grave ills and maladies. Not for one day did it rest, nay its sicknesses waxed more severe, as it fell under the treatment of unskilled physicians who have spurred on the steed of their worldly desires and have erred grievously. And if at one time, through the care of an able physician, a member of that body was healed, the rest remained afflicted as before. Thus informeth you the All-Knowing, the All-Wise…. That which the Lord hath ordained as the sovereign remedy and mightiest instrument for the healing of all the world is the union of all its peoples in one universal Cause, one common Faith. This can in no wise be achieved except through the power of a skilled, an all-powerful and inspired Physician. This verily is the truth, and all else naught but error.”

In a further passage Bahá’u’lláh adds these words: “We see you adding every year unto your expenditures and laying the burden thereof on the people whom ye rule; this verily is naught but grievous injustice. Fear the sighs and tears of this Wronged One, and burden not your peoples beyond that which they can endure…. Be reconciled among yourselves, that ye may need armaments no more save in a measure to safeguard your territories and dominions. Be united, O concourse of the sovereigns of the world, for thereby will the tempest of discord be stilled amongst you and your peoples find rest. Should any one among you take up arms against another, rise ye all against him, for this is naught but manifest justice.”

What else could these weighty words signify if they did not point to the inevitable curtailment of unfettered national sovereignty as an indispensable preliminary to the formation of the future Commonwealth of all the nations of the world? Some form of a world super-state must needs be evolved, in whose favor all the nations of the world will have willingly ceded every claim to make war, certain rights to impose taxation and all rights to maintain armaments, except for purposes of maintaining internal order within their respective dominions. Such a state will have to include within its orbit an international executive adequate to enforce supreme and unchallengeable authority on every recalcitrant member of the commonwealth; a world parliament whose members shall be elected by the people in their respective countries and whose election shall be confirmed by their respective governments; and a supreme tribunal whose judgment will have a binding effect even in such cases where the parties concerned did not voluntarily agree to submit their case to its consideration. A world community in which all economic barriers will have been permanently demolished and the interdependence of Capital and Labor definitely recognized; in which the clamor of religious fanaticism and strife will have been forever stilled; in which the flame of racial animosity will have been finally extinguished; in which a single code of international law—the product of the considered judgment of the world’s federated representatives—shall have as its sanction the instant and coercive intervention of the combined forces of the federated units; and finally a world community in which the fury of a capricious and militant nationalism will have been transmuted into an abiding consciousness of world citizenship—such indeed, appears, in its broadest outline, the Order anticipated by Bahá’u’lláh, an Order that shall come to be regarded as the fairest fruit of a slowly maturing age.

Letter To Barack Obama

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. President,

How about a “To DON’T” list?
At the top of this new list for you is DON’T involve The United States in the Syrian Civil War!
How DARE anyone use the children dying in the Syrian civil war as a pretext for sending more weapons to the “rebels” or setting up a “no fly zone” over Syria!
This is the quintessence of HIPOCRISY! Surely YOU, Mr. President are aware that in excess of HALF a MILLION infants and children perished during the years of U.S. agression in Iraq from the years of BUSH Sr., all the way through the Clinton years, and culminating in the globally catastrophic 8 years of George W. BUSH/Cheney!
Adding weapons and taking more militaristic actions such as a “no fly zone” is merely a broader application of the INSANE thinking that arming the entire population of the U.S. with unlimited weaponry will be the best solution to GUN VIOLENCE!!!
IF you, Mr. President cannot see this obvious connection of only these 2 issues to say nothing of how these connect to many others then you may not be able to take the U.S., much less the world, in a new direction away from planetary warfare. This is your job in your current position, if you only knew, which I believe you DO!
I did not support your election and re-election for you to follow in the footsteps of the WARMONGERS before you!
I do not extoll your Presidency for you to buckle under pressure to the ways of the WARMONGERS of the BUSH cabal and others!
I told you at the beginning of your first term that you would fail utterly as a president if you did not end the U.S. agression in Afghanistan and you have correctly taken steps, albeit politically tentative steps, in that direction and for this and other acts of leadership you’ve been granted another term by the people of this nation with great approval, BUT if you follow in the path of geopolitical meddling as those before you have then you will be counted among them and in the annals of the true history of this country be recorded as no better in any way than those ones before you.
YOU Barack Obama MUST choose to lead the U.S. and the world in a VERY different manner and direction, and your second term is passing all too quickly!
My prayers are with you that you will be under the protection of GOD THE MOST GLORIOUS at all times and that your leadership decisions will be rightly guided.
Your friend and supporter still,
