Shoghi Effendi observes: “Humanity is now experiencing the commotions invariably associated with the most turbulent stage of its evolution, the stage of adolescence, when the impetuosity of youth and its vehemence reach their climax, and must gradually be superseded by the calmness, the wisdom, and the maturity that characterize the stage of manhood. Then will the human race reach that stature of ripeness which will enable it to acquire all the powers and capacities upon which its ultimate development must depend?… Unification of the whole of mankind is the hallmark of the stage in which human society is now approaching…A world, growing to maturity, must abandon this fetish, recognize the oneness and wholeness of human relationships, and establish once for all the machinery that can best incarnate this fundamental principle of its life.” (The World Order of Baha’u’llah).

There are growing pains associated with this process. In order to keep these under control, we must make certain adjustments to various facets of our worldview. We will be discussing a new worldview, offered by Baha’u’llah, which is the subject of this presentation.

The Speaker’s purpose is for the audience to walk away with more questions than answers. We are exposing you to new ideas. Please investigate this further after attending this session!
