Sharing Thoughts and Feelings

Today, I got an email from my sister. She had the difficult task of telling me two days before Thaksgiving about the death on Friday of my Uncle. He was my father's brother, and he had been fighting cancer of the esophagus for almost a year.

While grieved, I looked for a passage that would provide me with some sort of solace. I found a couple helpful words among the writings of Abdu'l-Baha. I will now share one passage with my readers.

" The mysteries of which man is heedless in this earthly world, those he will discover in the heavenly world, and there will he be informed of the secret of truth, how much more will he recognize with whom he hath been associated. Undoubtedly, the holy souls who find a pure eye and are favored with insight will, in the kingdom of lights, be acquainted with all mysteries and will seek the bounty of witnessing the reality of every great soul. Even they will manifestly behold the Beauty of God in that world. Likewise, will they find all the friends of God, both those of the former and recent times, present in the heavenly assemblage."
