August 12, 1912: The Week Ahead

ITS BEEN A RESTFUL, yet eventful few weeks for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Dublin, New Hampshire, but it’s time to make the ninety mile trip eastward to his next stop in Eliot, Maine.

In the week ahead, the sun sets on Dublin Lake, we take a look at “spiritual cravings,” and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá arrives at Green Acre.

    What a great quotation from ‘Abdu’l-Baha! I will however have to reflect on what what bodily exertion and sweat of the brow might mean for someone like me who spends most of his working day at a desk and a computer designing buildings and managing projects… I think it intends to set a benchmark for enterprise – that one should add value to something before merely on-selling or similar.

    I think it just means working really hard, maybe under pressure, which without one realizing it affects our physical part.
