Podcast 9: No True Happiness and Progress Without Spirituality

On November 21, 1911 ‘Abdu’l-Bahá gave a talk on true happiness and progress saying, I want to make you understand that material progress and spiritual progress are two very different things, and that only if material progress goes hand in hand with spirituality can any real progress come about, and the Most Great Peace reign in the world. If men followed the Holy Counsels and the Teachings of the Prophets, if Divine Light shone in all hearts and men were really religious, we should soon see peace on earth and the Kingdom of God among men.  

This podcast concludes the Master’s first Western tour. The Journey West team looks forward to continuing our journey with you in the United States soon.

  • When we open our hearts and minds to the true spirit of love, our souls become enlightened
    Imagine if we allow that same spirit to be incorporated in our thoughts and actions then we become illuminated through the power of the Holy Spirit. Thanks for sharing for this is both thought provoking and spiritually refreshing.
