Ayyam-i-Ha 179-180 B.E.:Sunset 2/25/2023-Sunset 2/28/2023

Sunday, February 26th, 2023

O Pen of the Most High! Say: O people of the world! We have enjoined upon you fasting during a brief period, and at its close have designated for you Naw-Rúz as a feast. Thus hath the Day-Star of Utterance shone forth above the horizon of the Book as decreed by Him Who is the Lord of the beginning and the end. Let the days in excess of the months be placed before the month of fasting. We have ordained that these, amid all nights and days, shall be the manifestations of the letter Há, and thus they have not been bounded by the limits of the year and its months. It behoveth the people of Bahá, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name; and when they end—these days of giving that precede the season of restraint—let them enter upon the Fast. Thus hath it been ordained by Him Who is the Lord of all mankind. The traveller, the ailing, those who are with child or giving suck, are not bound by the Fast; they have been exempted by God as a token of His grace. He, verily, is the Almighty, the Most Generous.

Baha’u’llah, Kitab-I-Aqdas


Known as the Ayyám-i-Há (the Days of Há), the Intercalary Days have the distinction of being associated with “the letter Há”. The abjad numerical value of this Arabic letter is five, which corresponds to the potential number of intercalary days.

The letter “Há” has been given several spiritual meanings in the Holy Writings, among which is as a symbol of the Essence of God.


Say: Nature in its essence is the embodiment of My Name, the Maker, the Creator. Its manifestations are diversified by varying causes, and in this diversity there are signs for men of discernment. Nature is God’s Will and is its expression in and through the contingent world. It is a dispensation of Providence ordained by the Ordainer, the All-Wise. Were anyone to affirm that it is the Will of God as manifested in the world of being, no one should question this assertion. It is endowed with a power whose reality men of learning fail to grasp. Indeed a man of insight can perceive naught therein save the effulgent splendor of Our Name, the Creator. Say: This is an existence which knoweth no decay, and Nature itself is lost in bewilderment before its revelations, its compelling evidences and its effulgent glory which have encompassed the universe.

My God, my Fire and my Light! The days which Thou hast named the Ayyám-i-Há (the Days of Há, Intercalary days) in Thy Book have begun, O Thou Who art the King of names, and the fast which Thy most exalted Pen hath enjoined unto all who are in the kingdom of Thy creation to observe is approaching. I entreat Thee, O my Lord, by these days and by all such as have during that period clung to the cord of Thy commandments, and laid hold on the handle of Thy precepts, to grant that unto every soul may be assigned a place within the precincts of Thy court, and a seat at the revelation of the splendors of the light of Thy countenance.

These, O my Lord, are Thy servants whom no corrupt inclination hath kept back from what Thou didst send down in Thy Book. They have bowed themselves before Thy Cause, and received Thy Book with such resolve as is born of Thee, and observed what Thou hadst prescribed unto them, and chosen to follow that which had been sent down by Thee.

Thou seest, O my Lord, how they have recognized and confessed whatsoever Thou hast revealed in Thy Scriptures. Give them to drink, O my Lord, from the hands of Thy graciousness the waters of Thine eternity. Write down, then, for them the recompense ordained for him that hath immersed himself in the ocean of Thy presence, and attained unto the choice wine of Thy meeting.

I implore Thee, O Thou the King of kings and the Pitier of the downtrodden, to ordain for them the good of this world and of the world to come. Write down for them, moreover, what none of Thy creatures hath discovered, and number them with those who have circled round Thee, and who move about Thy throne in every world of Thy worlds.

Thou, truly, art the Almighty, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed.

Baha’u’llah, Prayers And Meditations #XLV

Baha’i Sabbath: Mulk 18, 179 B.E. (2/24/2023)

Friday, February 24th, 2023


It turns out that the 1928 General Treaty to Renounce War (#2137) is the “everlasting Covenant of peace” (Ez. 37:26) spoken all throughout the Hebrew Bible, the Koran, and the sacred prophecies of all traditions, faiths and indigenous peoples.

It turns out, seen with an eye of insight, that #2137 that makes war illegal between the 72 signatory nation states, provides the rock-solid foundation for the peoples charter (article 2) “pacific means” to democratically elect the SupremeTribunal to end war, the “house” beth-el, where all nations shall flow (meaning to gather and democratically elect) and “learn war no more” (Is. 2).

It turns out that by the criteria of prophecy fulfilled (an ancient, valid and firmly tested epistemology in its own right) the “Kingdom of God” eagerly awaited by Jews, Christians and Muslims (and by all traditions) is already established upon the earth as it is in heaven as of August 27, 1928!

It turns out if we see that this is the FACT with our own eyes, and all the people see that the everlasting Covenant of Friendship was legislated as international law for all nations and peoples in 1928…then it turns out we can all come together NOW at the time of the Great Crisis of this promised ONE HOUR to Activate Article II correctly and live in Universal Peace on Earth and justice for all peoples, the “Kingdom of God” on earth, experiencing the Oneness of Humanity in all our daily affairs, relationships and community interactions…

It turns out that God has already answered all the peoples prayers for world peace and for material and spiritual salvation of all human beings, in 1928.

It turns out that we today are, one and all and equally so, the heirs of this noble and peerless heritage: that for the first time in the history of the human race, war is now illegal!

So it turns out now, it’s up to us to be Firm in the Covenant #2137…

If the people are functional (spiritual) any system will work, but if they’re not spiritual then no system will work…

It turns out God did God’s part, and here it is, the “Kingdom of God” meaning the everlasting society of justice and peace, established on earth as it is in heaven legally as of 1928…

So it turns out now, if we want to have this life for us all on earth without war, then as God has done God’s part, it’s now up to us all to non-violently do our part, in personal practice and for public policy…

Let go of WAR, embrace the love and hope that Universal Peace and the Oneness of Humanity, justice for all, shall prevail…

Vote YES on #2137
Let’s democratically elect the SupremeTribunal whose sole purpose is to end war and prevent national military aggressions…

Peace on Earth is HERE NOW if we want it…uphold the Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact and Activate Article II, so the threat of war will actually be removed, the total war economy shut down and so we can all return to our lives and daily occupations…
How selfish is that!?

Wishing life and life abundantly for All! Regardless of race, sex, gender, creed, and color?

Saturday, February 18th, 2023


How will The General Treaty to Renounce War (#2137 Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact) ultimately triumph? Through those who oppose the Cause of Universal Peace:

“Bahá’u’lláh [the Author of the Covenant to Abolish War], speaking of these very ones who were attacking and decrying Him [opposed to democratically electing the SupremeTribunal to end war and establish permanent peace on the foundation of real justice], said:

“They are My heralds; they are the ones who are proclaiming My message and spreading My Word. Pray that they may be multiplied, pray that their number may increase and that they may cry out more loudly. The more they abuse Me by their words and the greater their agitation, the more potent and mighty will be the efficacy of the Cause of God [the Cause of Justice for Universal Peace], the more luminous the light of the Word [war is illegal] and the greater the radiance of the divine Sun [our new civilization of “pacific means”]. And eventually the gloomy darkness of the outer world [materialism and war over it] will disappear, and the light of reality [a high-tech verdant green educational-agricultural society] will shine until the whole earth will be effulgent [cooperating to thrive] with its glory [real love actualized in the Oneness of Humanity.]”

“The solving of these international problems depends upon the increase of the NUMBER of the lovers of Peace, thus those who are devoted to the greater friendship of nations may add to their power the public opinion which revolves around the Peace of the world. Then, through the powerful demonstration of the people of peace and reconciliation all the nations will be FORCED to accept the doctrine of peace.

“LOVE is illumination. LOVE is the cause of Life.”

“In this age, therefore, Universal Peace is like unto the Sun [#2137], which bestoweth life upon all things, and it is thus incumbent upon all to endeavour in the path of this mighty Cause…we [and our current legal representatives operating in the world in the current moment] have in no wise relented, but have continued to endeavour unto this very moment and are increasing our efforts as day followeth day, because OUR desire for peace is not derived merely from the intellect:

“It is a matter of [personal Spirituality and] religious belief and one of the Eternal Foundations of the Faith of God.

“That is why we strive with all our might and, forsaking our own advantage, rest, and comfort, forgo the pursuit of our own affairs; devote ourselves to the mighty Cause of peace [what we call the Cause of God]; and consider it [the Covenant to Abolish war #2137] to be the very foundation of the Divine religions, a service to His Kingdom, the source of eternal life, and the greatest means of admittance into the heavenly realm.”
— ‘Abdu’l-Baha

All of us have a vote of one…

VOTE YES! For the US, Russia, UK and France to confirm their three delegates (male & female) to democratically elect the International Council to End War.

“Another teaching is that there shall be perfect equality between men and women. Why should man create a distinction which God does not recognize? In the kingdoms below man sex exists, but the distinction between male and female is neither repressive nor restrictive. The mare, for instance, is as strong and often more speedy than the horse. Throughout the animal and vegetable kingdoms there is perfect equality between the sexes. In the kingdom of mankind this equality must likewise exist, and the one whose heart is purest, whose life and character are highest and nearest to the divine standard is most worthy and excellent in the sight of God. This is the only true and real distinction, be that one man or woman.”– ‘Abdu’l-Baha.

War, it’s what not to do…time to get our heads into the practical solutions of Art. 2, “pacific means”…

Ukraine Calls For The Supreme Tribunal! – Mulk/Dominion 8, 179 B.E. (2/14/2023)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2023


See! Ukraine has called for The Supreme Tribunal to deal with the single issue of Aggression!!!

“Aggression” means the single crime of making war, that is violating The Most Great Covenant of the 1928 Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact! Message delivered-Message received!

Happy Valentines Day from the beloved of hearts!

Now that Ukraine has called for The Supreme Tribunal, using the exact term Tribunal, for the sole purpose to uphold #2137, this isn’t going to work…UNLESS they follow the explicit instructions of the Author without deviating a hair’s breath to the left or the right.


A) The Tribunal has to be democratically elected by all the signatory 72 Nations.

B) The Nation States must send two or three delegates to a world unity meeting of the General Treaty Organization (GTO). The KELLOGG-BRIAND PACT is legally referred to as The General Treaty to Renounce War as national policy, and the signatory nations all bound under its unbreakable authority even now are the members of the GTO.

C) The number of delegates chosen is two or three only to be determined by population.

D) The National Governments already elected by the people choose their two or three delegates as the most knowledgeable, trustworthy, caring human beings that love their country and love all the people of the world like the man said from the middle of the pile of devastating rubble in Syria: ” Help us! We’re human beings!”

E) These delegates must go thru confirmation hearings and be ratified and approved by both the executive and legislative branches.

F) All the delegates of all the signatory then elect The Supreme Tribunal from their own numbers. If they all want to sit on The Supreme Tribunal, and say on average most nations sent 2 delegates and some 3, then the 152 of them could elect 152 members on The Tribunal. If they only want 8 members on The Tribunal or 3 as the judges for that case then the 152 delegates, vote by plurality ballot with no campaigning, that is everyone writes down 8 names after prayerful consideration or 3 (thats the minimun) and all 152 secret ballots are collected, and those 3 or 8 or 108 people elected are The Supreme Tribunal democratically elected by everyone, and their decision concerning the sole function to abolish war and uphold #2137 is final and binding upon all.

G) It MUST be formed democratically this way, and the plans to do so shared in the media with full public support of all the peoples in those countries that the governments represent. Because it’s decisions can only be upheld by all the individual citizens if we were all in support of its election and participated in its formation in the first place. And we have. We (I’m in the US) elected our local, state and national government, I participated in that process, and now my representatives that I support and the government workers and legislators who are self-sacrificing public servants wishing to better all humanity by assuming office, can then elect, confirm and ratify my 3 (mine and yours) delegates from USA. Same with Russia, England, France, and every other of the 72 nations has a right to send delegates for the election. The Hague, League and UN all have failed to end war, no matter how good intentioned and self-sacrificing the hearts of the workers simply because none of them are democratically elected in the manner described here. The Author and the Delineator explain this fully in their writings. All signatory nations must participate, it must be democratically elected in the public eye by the national governments so all the citizens will support it, especially if it’s a raw deal for some people, and by “some people” I mean, war- mongers who are going to need to find some other source of revenue like hotel and restaurant management or something else that’s humane and pro-social.

H) The delegates chosen must be of different genders.

I) The delegates chosen must be knowledgeable in the three documents corresponding to the three articles of the General Treaty, A1 the General Treaty itself, A2, The Global Ethic, A3, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The General Treaty is invioble and cannot be either altered nor amended as its the General Foundation for all civilization still remaining in force on planet earth today. The Universal Declaration and Global Ethic are dynamic living documents breathed into life by the power of love embodied in the General Treaty are open to creative adjustments to suit the needs of the people in their days and times.

No democratic election such as this has ever happened!



The one that’s democratically elected!

As the Author and Delineator explain in their writings, as its democratically elected then no one nation is above another and all nations are secure in their own borders and those borders must be defined and respected. Nations can buy and sell territories with one another, the same way people buy and sell homes, there’s no need for wars over territory districts once the borders are defined. Animals are territorial settling borders and holding to them establishes good solid boundaries where the diversity of cultures and peoples can feel safe and secure. Also, unlike Versailles where “winners” excluded “losers” ALL Signatories MUST have their delegates sent and NOT excluded from the world unity friendship festival to elect the SupremeTribunal! That part, considering WWII, should be loud and clear as a trumpet, considering this FATAL FAILURE OF Versailles!! “LEARN war no more”! Learn from Versailles! Do not exclude any signatory nation or peoples.

II The foundation of the Supreme Tribunal MUST be founded upon the single inviolable foundation of the Oneness of Humanity:

The 12 Principles of the General Treaty to Renounce War explained by the Author and Delineator are found represented in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and where missing must be included, for these are only the 12 Principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights when all 12 Principles are included as the Author and Delineator have stated. The 12th Principle is the Principle that calls for democratically electing the Supreme Tribunal itself for the sole purpose of ending war.

III The Global Ethic and Global Ethic Document:

The Golden Rule is the global Ethic for activating Article 2, “pacific means”:

Pacific means, refers to upholding article 1, the Abolition of War, by all the members of Art 3, electing democratically and pacificaly the Supreme Tribunal.

The Golden rule: do unto others even better than you would have them do unto you means we do NOT steal other people’s ideas and that we give credit to where credit is due. Why? Scientific provenance! We, as real human beings, need to know the transparency of the facts. This is so we can accept and understand what is true so we can give that truth, that reality, that love for all humanity our full and undivided support. Also, when things go wrong, and they will, we need to know the provenance to go back to the basics and retrace our steps to see if and where we went wrong.

For example this is what happened just before the outbreak of WWI. The head of the Hague found out that the Czar of Russia had lied taking credit for himself for the idea to elect a World Court. As all terror was crashing down around him in his office in the Netherlands a scramble took place to contact the Author to fix the impending problem. When they discovered that the Author had already passed on but wrote a binding legal Will and Testament naming and appointing His designated Person of Legal sucession for all matters concerning The Peace Pact Plan to Abolish War they wrote to him immediately!

But it was too late. They didn’t have the internet back then, nor multiple intelligence agencies, that could spread the word in the twinkling of an eye, and the letter they sent to the designated person of legal succession, who at that time was the Delineator, was lost in the mail due to the outbreak of WWI itself. So it was not until 1920 that the letter arrived in the Holy Land, and the word of Christ was sent back in immediate reply to the receipt of the letter.

Therefore, the third point, in order to correctly form the Supreme Tribunal the signatory nations must officially recognize and acknowledge the Author of all thus as the Author and recognize and acknowledge the designated Person of Legal sucession in order to get what the head of the Hague got in 1920:

The document that states this three point plan to correctly impliment article 2 of #2137.

1) It MUST be founded on the 12 Principles that are the foundation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, that upholds the Oneness of Humanity and the rights of self defense for all people and nations.

2) It MUST be democratically elected, as stated above. And,

3) The Author and current designated person of legal sucession MUST be officially recognized and acknowledged if this is going to function. So people can get real feedback about what all this really is and how it really works so that our world leaders can do their job by meeting our needs to be free people free of the blight of war.

Ukraine has NOW made the call to CORRECTLY form the Supreme Tribunal to End War the sole purview “agression” that is, to uphold #2137.

Let’s democratically elect this properly upon the foundation of the Oneness of all Humanity and justice for all. If done on these three points it will succeed. People have a basic human right to live in a world free of war. Everyone agrees with this, we’re all human beings! As citizens of the 72 Signatories real human beings have a right to democratically elect the Tribunal to include everyone and exclude no one. People have a right to know that Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha are the Author and Delineator of it.

Happy Valentines Day from the beloved of hearts!

War is Over if you want it!

********* ********* *********

Mírzá Aḥmad Sohrab recorded in his diary the following prophecy about ‘Akká and Haifa uttered by ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá while seated by the window of one of the Bahá’í Pilgrim Homes at Haifa on February 14, 1914:—

The view from the Pilgrim Home is very attractive, especially as it faces the Blessed Tomb of Bahá’u’lláh. In the future the distance between ‘Akká and Haifa will be built up, and the two cities will join and clasp hands, becoming the two terminal section of one mighty metropolis. As I look now over this scene, I see so clearly that it will become one of the first emporiums of the world. This great semicircular bay will be transformed into the finest harbor, wherein the ships of all nations will seek shelter and refuge. The great vessels of all peoples will come to this port, bringing on their decks thousands and thousands of men and women from every part of the globe. The mountain and the plain will be dotted with the most modern buildings and palaces. Industries will be established and various institutions of philanthropic nature will be founded. The flowers of civilization and culture from all nations will be brought here to blend their fragrances together and blaze the way for the brotherhood of man. Wonderful gardens, orchards, groves and parks will be laid out on all sides. At night the great city will be lighted by electricity. The entire harbor from ‘Akká to Haifa will be one path of illumination. Powerful searchlights will be placed on both sides of Mount Carmel to guide the steamers. Mount Carmel itself, from top to bottom, will be submerged in a sea of lights. A person standing on the summit of Mount Carmel, and the passengers of the steamers coming to it, will look upon the most sublime and majestic spectacle of the whole world.

From every part of the mountain the symphony of “Yá Bahá’u’l-Abhá!” will be raised, and before the daybreak soul-entrancing music accompanied by melodious voices will be uplifted towards the throne of the Almighty.

Indeed, God’s ways are mysterious and unsearchable. What outward relation exists between Shíráz and Ṭihrán, Baghdád and Constantinople, Adrianople and ‘Akká and Haifa? God worked patiently, step by step, through these various cities, according to His own definite and eternal plan, so that the prophecies and predictions as foretold by the Prophets might be fulfilled. This golden thread of promise concerning the Messianic Millennium runs through the Bible, and it was so destined that God in His own good time would cause its appearance. Not even a single word will be left meaningless and unfulfilled.

Baha’i Month: Mulk/Dominion 1, 179 B.E. (2/7/2022)

Tuesday, February 7th, 2023

Thou art My dominion and My dominion perisheth not; wherefore fearest thou thy perishing? Thou art My light and My light shall never be extinguished; why dost thou dread extinction? Thou art My glory and My glory fadeth not; thou art My robe and My robe shall never be outworn. Abide then in thy love for Me, that thou mayest find Me in the realm of glory.

Baha’u’llah, Hidden Words Arabic #14

Strive then, O My brother, to apprehend this matter, that the veils may be lifted from the face of thy heart and that thou mayest be reckoned among them whom God hath graced with such penetrating vision as to behold the most subtle realities of His dominion, to fathom the mysteries of His kingdom, to perceive the signs of His transcendent Essence in this mortal world, and to attain a station wherein one seeth no distinction amongst His creatures and findeth no flaw in the creation of the heavens and the earth.
