This is the second episode of “The Universe Within” series, an initiative by that same name. This initiative shares quotations from the Baha’i Writings with artists around the world and the end result is a multi-media exploration of an elevated idea. This episode features art by Totoi, Cristina Stucchi, Olinga Dwyer Bolden, Lakan, Amelia Rasekhy, Joshua Hominick, Eemanna Rivers and Juliet Rasekhy.
The theme for this second episode explores the concept of Progressive Revelation. If you’d curious to know more, you might enjoy this Baha’i Blog article: The Baha’i Principle of Progressive Revelation
The quotations sourced from the Bahaʼi Writings for this episode include:
“The Manifestations of God are like so many different mirrors… that which is reflected in these mirrors is one and the same sun”
“…these songs and airs proceed not from the reed itself but from the player who blows into it… That which He utters proceeds not from Himself but from the ideal Player and from divine revelation.”
“…man is said to be the greatest sign of God — that is, he is the Book of Creation — for all the mysteries of the universe are found in him. Should he come under the shadow of the true Educator and be right trained… he becomes the focal centre of divine blessings, the wellspring of spiritual attributes.”
