I wrote this piece a few years ago and released it on an album titled ‘Edge of Forever’. As the quotation is so timely I asked my producer to re-master it and include the song on ‘The Divine Mystery’.
‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave a talk about war and peace in Paris on Oct 21, 1912. In His closing remarks He inspired His audience with these words:
“I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content. Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness.” ‘‘Abdu’l-Bahá
It seems we need to hear and reflect on these words now more than ever.
Thanks to Jarome Matthew for producing and arranging the song and to Eric Harper for adding his beautiful guitar recording.
Here are a few ways to support a musician when a video is released:
Like the video and listen on repeat 😀 (it really does help the YouTube algorithms share it with more people)
Comment on the video
Share the video with your friends on social media. Thank you so much for all your kind support.
This helps spread the video so more people can see it.
*Next month I will be releasing a video and gift download of a new song titled: ‘The Mystery of God – Titles of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’. I recently composed the song in honor of the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. The piece will be given as a GIFT to friends on my music mailing list. I can’t wait to share it with you soon in case you would like to use it for the commemoration in your community.
For friends who have received your ‘Divine Mystery’ booklet-album, I have made a short video explaining how to download the full album using a Bandcamp code which can be found inside the back cover of the booklet. Here is the link:https://youtu.be/iXzqRXhKd-o
