"The more we search for ourselves, the less likely we are to find ourselves; and the more we search for God, and to serve our fellow-men, the more profoundly will we become acquainted with ourselves, and the more inwardly assured. This is one of the great spiritual laws of life." -- Baha’i teachings
Is is possible to grow spiritually in a vacuum? It’s quite natural to think about our own spiritual growth and development in terms of how it can help us improve our own life, but how does that relate to the world around us?
What if our own personal growth is inexorably tied up in the growth and progress of others? And what if the progress of others and of our communities not only helps make the world a better place but is actually what helps us grow?
Please join us for a lively discussion on the spiritual perspective offered by the Baha'i teachings on how practicing selflessness and incorporating service to others is one of the greatest forms of self-development. Together we will explore how finding inner peace and spiritually reconnecting can leave us recharged and refreshed to serve the world around us.
"Whosoever has lost himself has found the universe and the inhabitants thereof. Whosoever is occupied with himself is wandering in the desert of heedlessness and regret. The "master-key" to self-mastery is self-forgetting." -- Baha'i Teachings
