Here are the top ten articles for the Baha'i Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Survival Requires Diversity, not Uniformity
We do not need to save the planet; it will be fine. But there is a great deal of work that must be done to save the species Homo sapiens. Learning to live as one diverse but harmonious human family is the first step.
2. The Best Things to Pray for
Prayer is good for us, according to saints and holy ones, philosophers and poets, but I have not found the process easy to do on a daily basis! In looking for ways to better understand what prayer is, as well as how to do it, I found Ruth Moffet's 1933 book, "Do'a, On Wings of Prayer."
3. Bahá'ís Enhance Learning with The Arts
Memory and skills are enhanced by understanding, and understanding requires all the ways in which we perceive and respond to the world. Being able to show people how participating in the arts can open their hearts and feed their souls is a worthy aspiration.
4. Tools for Dealing with Crises
We live in a rapidly changing world. Change often creates crises, but human resilience can be equal to the challenge(s). There are tools and skills which can help.
5. What's So Important about Good Deeds ?
Leaders of thought (including my grandmother!) have been counseling the importance of good deeds forever, it seems. What exactly is a good deed, and why would we want to go to the effort?
6. Why Is Patience So Difficult ?
Patience is one of the most difficult virtues, I think. So difficult that God has reiterated the command to develop it in every chapter of His religious Book. Guidance for this Day is no different.
7. Why Aren't Bahá'ís Vegetarian ?
Some believers may indeed be vegetarian, but that is a personal choice and not a religious law.
8. On the Death of a Child
Solace from the Bahá'í Writings on the unexpected death of my youngest grandchild.
9. Baha’i Online Dating Services Updated
Information about online dating services that target Baha´is.
10. Rebekah's Well - Book Review
A review of Trish Wilkinson's book, "Rebekah's Well," a retelling of women's stories which form part of the common history of four great religions.
