“Love Is Not…” by Nadia, Zaynab, Fritz & Earl

August 15, 2018, in Music > Studio Session, by

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in New York, USA with Nadia Affolter, Zaynab Affolter, Fritz Affolter and Earl Henrikson, who sing “Love Is Not…” from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in New York, USA, August, 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

…this love is not of the body but completely of the soul. And those souls whose inner being is lit by the love of God are even as spreading rays of light, and they shine out like stars of holiness in a pure and crystalline sky. For true love, real love, is the love for God, and this is sanctified beyond the notions and imaginings of men.

Abdu’l-Baha
