During a Ruhi Study Circle  in Taipei, Taiwan, we learn that teaching requires drawing on the mercy of God while being detached from results. But it’s still a learning process. From the photo, the question in its entirety from Book 2 – Arising To Serve: “Undoubtedly, the things you enjoy doing are beneficial to you and to others. Does the joy you derive from them come only from the results they bring, or also from the act of doing them? “

“When you call on the Mercy of God waiting to reinforce you, your strength will be tenfold.”

—Abdu’l Baha, Paris Talks.
