Our shadows are always resting just below the peak, closest to the light.

There was a break in the clouds today, everything is coming together.

“Know thou, verily, Baha’ was the Sun of Love and Peace, who shone
forth with the Light of Guidance and was a Spirit of Life to all
regions. The signs of His effulgence shall appear when the love of God
shall influence the hearts, just as the soul influenceth bodies. The
clouds of darkness shall be dispelled from the manifest light of love
and peace, and from the abundant bounty of reconciliation and
tranquility.”
-Tablets of Abdul-Baha Abbas

O Son of Being!

Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favour upon thee.

O Son Of  Spirit!
My claim on thee is great, it cannot be forgotten. My grace to thee is plenteous, it cannot be veiled. My love has made in thee its home, it cannot be concealed. My light is manifest to thee, it cannot be obscured“.
~Baha’u’llah

…this limitless universe is like the human body, all the members of which are connected and linked with one another with the greatest strength. How much the organs, the members and the parts of the body of man are intermingled and connected for mutual aid and help, and how much they influence one another! In the same way, the parts of this infinite universe have their members and elements connected with one another, and influence one another spiritually and materially.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 244)

Late afternoon light on freshly cut grass.
“Lift up your hearts above the present and look with eyes of faith into the future! Today the seed is sown, the grain falls upon the earth, but behold the day will come when it shall rise a glorious tree and the branches thereof shall be laden with fruit. Rejoice and be glad that this day has dawned, try to realize its power, for it is indeed wonderful!”
—‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 64.
