Dealing with Stress as a Bahá'í
Life is stressful, and here's how I'm trying to deal with it, with a little help from my friends and the Bahá'í Faith.
Detachment - Learning to Let Go
The Bahá'í Faith teaches detachment from material things as a source of happiness, but it also counsels freeing oneself from worldly motives and self-interest when dealing with others.
Discipline - Raising Children to Be Good Citizens
The concept of discipline means strength of character, not a form of punishment.
Spring is the time for renewal in all things, including religion. A Divine Springtime occurs when God sends another Messenger to further the spiritual education of mankind.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Evil Spirits ?
The terms 'Satan', the 'Evil One', do occur in the scripture but they are simply symbols for man's base and worldly nature, which is the source of imperfection and sin and which can be overcome.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Exorcism ?
I don't want to believe anything could force me to sin. But neither do I want to think I'm inherently capable of evil. Perhaps, believing "The Devil made me do it!" is a less shocking explanation. Bahá'ís, however, take a different perspective.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Extraterrestrial Life ?
The Bahá'í Faith does have within its sacred texts several comments about the extent of God's creation that suggest non-terrestrial life is both possible and already existent.
Do Bahá'ís Believe in Ghosts ?
This life is only the beginning, and there is eternity to follow, so in that sense, Bahá'ís definitely believe in eternal spirits. As for ghostly manifestations that those of us still here can see--not so much.
Do Bahá'ís Confess Their Sins ?
Confessing one's sins and transgressions before another human being is not a source of either redemption or pardon in the Bahá'í Teachings. A believer turns only to God for forgiveness and salvation.
Do Baha'is feed the poor?
I was asked recently whether the Bahá'í Faith has social outreach programs for the needy, and this is how I answered.
