The Hallowed Beauty

about

This was the first composition I recorded for the CD. By coincidence this was during the Bahá’í fast which seems most appropriate since the purpose of the fast is to remind us to focus more on the spiritual world and less on the material aspects of life.

lyrics

O Man Of Two Visions! Close one eye and open the other. Close one to the world and all that is therein, and open the other to the hallowed beauty of the Beloved.
-Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, Persian #12.

Grieve thou not over the troubles and hardships of this nether world, nor be thou glad in times of ease and comfort, for both shall pass away. This present life is even as a swelling wave, or a mirage, or drifting shadows.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, pages 177-178.
