Beauty – a gift from a loving God

O SON OF MAN!
Veiled in My immemorial being and in the ancient eternity of My essence, I knew My love for thee; therefore I created thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee My beauty.
Baha’u’llah

Beauty is one of the attributes of God and one of God’s gifts to us. An appreciation of the beauty of nature and of the beauty of the human soul helps bring us closer to God. Think of all of the good, selfless things that people have done for you.

O SON OF MAN!
Neglect not My commandments if thou lovest My beauty, and forget not My counsels if thou wouldst attain My good pleasure.
Baha’u’llah

The most beautiful thing of all is to attain a recognition of our true spiritual nature. This is done through the divine teachings given to us by God’s Messenger.

And when He purposed to manifest His beauty in the kingdom of names and to reveal His glory in the realm of attributes, He brought forth His Prophets from the invisible plane to the visible, that His name “the Manifest” might be distinguished from “the Hidden” and His name “the Last” might be discerned from “the First”, and that there may be fulfilled the words: “He is the First and the Last; the Seen and the Hidden; and He knoweth all things!”
Baha’u’llah

Recognizing God and being obedient to His Word is the ultimate source of our happiness.

Behold ye My beauty, and My radiance, and My revelation, and My effulgence. By God, the True One! I am Trustworthiness and the revelation thereof, and the beauty thereof. I will recompense whosoever will cleave unto Me, and recognize My rank and station, and hold fast unto My hem.
Baha’u’llah
