    JUXTAPOSITION

    “There is no greater mystery than this: being Reality ourselves, we seek to gain Reality.” ~ Ramana Maharshi

    Baha’i Teachings
    “Man is My mystery, and I am his mystery.” ”

    -Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings From the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, XC, p. 177

    ONENESS: God, our heart, Judaism’s Talmud & Torah – and Baha’i teachings 

    Baha’is will recall this teaching from Baha’u’lah;

    ‘He hath refused to reserve for Himself any share whatever of this world’s dominion. To this He Who is Himself the Eternal Truth will testify. The things He hath reserved for Himself are the cities of men’s hearts, that He may cleanse them from all earthly defilements, and enable them to draw nigh unto the hallowed Spot which the hands of the infidel can never profane. Open, O people, the city of the human heart with the key of your utterance.’ – Gleanings CXXXIX

    Surprise, surprise we also find;

    ‘The Talmud says that God wants the heart, and the Talmud also says that God gave the Torah only to purify our hearts.’ – in Judaism’s Theological Voice: The Melody of the Talmud by Jacob Neusner p29

    “Well I never – we find that at their heart the great Traditions teach the same set of core Teachings!”

    I love the meaning-making possibilities generated by the juxtapositioning of quotations;

    “What we are looking for is what is looking.” – St Francis of Assisi

    Turn thy sight unto thyself, that thou mayest find Me standing within thee, mighty, powerful and self-subsisting. Baha’u’llah – from AHW 13
