Track Name: Soaring Bird
You are even as the bird that soars, with the full force of it's mighty wings,with complete and joyous confidence,through the immensity of the heavens;....... until impelled to satisfy it's hunger, it turns longingly to the water and the clay of the earth below it; having been entrapped in the mesh of it's desire finds itself impotent to resume it's flight, to the realms from whence it came.....
Track Name: The Betterment of the World
The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds and commendable and seemly conduct.....beware O People of the world lest you walk in the ways of them whose words differ from their deeds....O Son of Man bring yourself to account each day lest you will be summoned to a reckoning...Holy words, pure and goodly deeds ascend unto the heaven of celestial glory....
Track Name: Bahái High
I came upon some people who seemed to me aware, they had open hearts to me they seemed to really care...about the world and truth and justice I thought I'd found some friends....they had open hearts to me I knew I'd found some friends...friends in a deeper sense of the word like minded kindred souls,friends from different race and culture like hidden gems untold......
Track Name: I Bear Witness
I testify at this moment, to my powerlessness and to Thy might....and to my poverty and to Thy wealth, there is none other God but Thee, the help in peril , the self subsisting
Track Name: Perfect Unity
Be in perfect unity, never become angry with one another....love the creatures for the sake of God and not for themselves...you will always become angry and impatient if you love them for the sake of them....Humanity is not perfect, there are imperfections in every human being....and you will always become unhappy if you love the people for the sake of them....but if you love them for the sake of God , you'll love them and be kind to them..... for the world of god ...is the world of perfection , and complete mercy.
Track Name: Nightingale's Garden
The nightingale sang in the quiet of the night, the peace from that garden was felt from afar...the chosen one walked among the roses in the moonlight conversing communing with God in high..this is the day when all shall be revealed he is the one we've be waiting for....and the wave of joy that broke upon the earth, shall reverberate for evermore.......the roses were pilled on the floor of his tent and sent out to the friends and the faithful....his words were soothing powerful and profound ...his words were listened to, written down and passed around....and the nightingale sang as the sun went down marking the 12 most happy days for all mankind
Track Name: Intone
Intone O My servant...the verses on high that have been intoned by them that have drawn nigh unto Thee...That the sweetness of the melody may enkindle your own soul and attract the hearts of all men...whoso recites in the privacy of his chamber the verses revealed on high...the scattering wings of the angels , shall scatter abroad the fragrance of the words uttered by His mouth and shall cause the hearts of every righteous man to throb...though he may at first remain unaware of it's effect by the grace given to him , it must needs sooner or later exercise it's influence upon his soul....thus have the mysteries been released by the breath of Him who is the source of wisdom......
Track Name: Blessed is the spot
Blessed is the spot ...and the house and the place and the city and the heart and the mountain....and the refuge and the cave and the valley and the land and the sea and the island and the meadow...where mention of God has been made ....and His praise glorified
Track Name: O Wayfarer
O wayfarer in the path of God, take though thy portion of the ocean of His grace and deprive not thyself of the things that lie hidden in it's depths...be thou of them that have partaken of it's treasure...a dew drop out of this ocean would if spread upon all that are in heaven and earth suffice to enrich them with the bounty of God the almighty the all knowing the all wise...with hands of renunciation draw forth from it's life-giving waters and sprinkle therewith...all created things that they may be cleansed from all man-made limitations and may approach the mighty seat of God ;this hallowed and resplendent spot.
Track Name: Thy Name is my Healing
Thy name is my healing, O my God and remembrance of Thee is my remedy.....nearness to Thee is my hope and love for Thee my companion....Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succour in both this world and the world to come...Verily Thou art the al-bountifu, the All-knowing, the All- wise
Track Name: My Beloved
My beloved , my heart's desire
Track Name: Truthfulness
Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtue....without truthfulness, progress and success are impossible for any soul.....beware O People of Baha lest you walk in ways of them whose words differ from their deeds....
