Track Name: The Daystar of the World
The Daystar of Baha is The Daystar of the World
Track Name: The Concourse on High
The New Heaven and Earth have come, The Holy City- The New Jerusalem. Fly, fl,y fly, fly, with the angels. The concourse on high.
Track Name: Royal Falcon
The Tongue of Wisdom proclaimeth: He that hath Me not is bereft of all things. Turn ye away from all that is on earth and seek none else but Me. I am the Sun of Wisdom and the Ocean of Knowledge. I cheer the faint and revive the dead. I am the guiding Light that illumineth the way. I am the royal Falcon on the arm of the Almighty. I unfold the drooping wings of every broken bird and start it on its flight.

Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, p. 169
Track Name: Clouds and Veils
CLOUDS AND VEILS---VEILS AND CLOUDS

Unite the People,
I am not here to fight war, I am here to build peace.
The MOST GREAT PEACE SHALL COME.
I am an advocate for peace-preventing world war.
Track Name: Power
Power--Power unleash the Power.
10x's the Power.
Power beyond measure.
Track Name: The Uncaged Bird
In the time of sleep this body is as though dead; it does not see nor hear; it does not feel; it has no consciousness, no perception—that is to say, the powers of man have become inactive, but the spirit lives and subsists. Nay, its penetration is increased, its flight is higher, and its intelligence is greater. To consider that after the death of the body the spirit perishes is like imagining that a bird in a cage will be destroyed if the cage is broken, though the bird has nothing to fear from the destruction of the cage. Our body is like the cage, and the spirit is like the bird. We see that without the cage this bird flies in the world of sleep; therefore, if the cage becomes broken, the bird will continue and exist. Its feelings will be even more powerful, its perceptions greater, and its happiness increased. In truth, from hell it reaches a paradise of delights because for the thankful birds there is no paradise greater than freedom from the cage.
~Abdul Baha
Track Name: Strive
Therefore strive that your actions day by day may be beautiful prayers. Turn towards God, and seek always to do that which is right and noble.
Enrich the poor, raise the fallen, comfort the sorrowful, bring healing to the sick, reassure the fearful, rescue the oppressed, bring hope to the hopeless, shelter the destitute!
ABDUL BAHA---Paris Talks
Track Name: Just Within Sight
I love you dc-coco
Track Name: Seek
Seek the Truth--The truth shall make you free.
Seek a path unto the truth
Seek ye the middle way
Seek the way of righteousness
Seek to become heavenly and spiritual
Seek to ascend unto the celestial abode
Seek illumination through prayer and supplication
Seek enlightenment from the illumined in heart
Seek out the Holy Breathings of the Spirit
Seek out the Glory of Heaven
Seeks the Beauty of the all Glorious
Seek to establish peace
Seek ye out hearts that are pure
Seek a home in the nest of heaven
Seek to diligently serve
Seek out the secrets of heaven

"All those who seek truth in the Heavenly Kingdom shine like the stars; they are like fruit trees laden with choice fruit, like seas full of precious pearls." Abdul Baha--Paris Talks

Seek the truth--The truth shall make you free
Seek, ere it's too late.........
Track Name: The Sun of Truth
The Sun of Truth dwelleth in a sky to which no soul hath any access, and which no mind can reach, and He is far beyond the comprehension of all creatures. Yet the Holy Manifestations of God are even as a looking-glass, burnished and without stain, which gathereth streams of light out of that Sun, and then scattereth the glory over the rest of creation. In that polished surface, the Sun with all Its majesty standeth clearly revealed. Thus, should the mirrored Sun proclaim, ‘I am the Sun!’ this is but truth; and should It cry, ‘I am not the Sun!’ this is the truth as well. And although the Day-Star, with all Its glory, Its beauty, Its perfections, be clearly visible in that mirror without stain, still It hath not come down from Its own lofty station in the realms above, It hath not made Its way into the mirror; rather doth It continue to abide, as It will forever, in the supernal heights of Its own holiness.
And further, all the earth’s creatures require the bounty of the sun, for their very existence is dependent upon solar light and heat. Should they be deprived of the sun, they would be wiped out. This is the being with God, as referred to in the Holy Books: man must be with his Lord.
It is clear, then, that the essential reality of God is revealed in His perfections; and the sun, with its perfections, reflected in a mirror, is a visible thing, an entity clearly expressing the bounty of God.
My hope is that thou wilt acquire a perceptive eye, a hearing ear, and that the veils will be removed from thy sight.
