I just noticed something. the posts to my blog lately have had very little trace of misery and depression and blahs. almost like everything’s been all good. well, not ALL the things have been good, but, overall, things in general have been good. I’m really happy with the way my life is going. As long as I keep up the efforts of finding a job, and I keep being able to serve the Bahá’í community, I’ll still be real happy.
also let me just say that we just had the second get-together of Victoriaville’s one and only Ruhi Book 2 study circle! It’s starting out well so far. Everyone seems to be having a lot of fun with it. If the start is any sign of things to come, then this should be a really amazing group. It’s really neat coming back to Victoriaville, meeting all the same people I was on the Spiritual Assembly with, but this time in the frame of learning and sharing about the Bahá’í Writings. While we were all quiet and doing work, I suddenly had this flashback to the time I took Ruhi Book 3, to that quote from Bahá’u’lláh that says, “Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value.” And I suddenly thought, wow, all these people are rich with so much capacity, and everyone has these gems inside them of different capacities in different degrees. And we’re all here together to help each other develop those capacities to the fullest. It feels really good to be a part of that.
