Riding the new wind

"There's a new wind blowing . . ."
- Phil Lucas

"There's a new world coming . . ."
- Mama Cass

"This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius . . ."
- The Fifth Dimension

"I see you coming back again, summer sunshine."

A few months ago I was reading some of the writings of William Miller, Hermann Zimmer, and Ruth White. That's another tale I'll tell some other time.

Something came into focus for me that filled me with feelings that I associate with those songs. The new wind, the new spirit that came into the world with Baha'u'llah, can not be encompassed by any organization or theory.

I'm imagining that you can ride that wind, the way a bird ride on currents of air, by learning to trust Baha'u'llah.

I'm imagining it would help us all a lot to talk to each other about our experiences in learning to trust Baha'u'llah. I want to practice that with people in my life. I started with Tony, July 18.
