The Universe Within: Pupil of the Eye

September 13, 2022, in Videos > Arts, by

This is the third episode of “The Universe Within” series, an initiative by that same name. This creative endeavour 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. In the third episode of the series, artists and creatives discuss social and spiritual transformation in the context of racial justice.

The quotations from the Bahaʼi Writings for this episode include:

“In this black pupil you see the reflection of that which is before it, and through it the light of the Spirit shines forth.”

“Let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path.”

“Consider the flowers of a garden. Though differing in kind, color, form and shape… this diversity increaseth their charm and addeth to their beauty.”

In an interview with the team behind this initiative, we learned how the initiative brings artists from diverse walks of life together to explore the pressing topics of our times by creating original art, animation, and music

All episodes of “The Universe Within” are available online on their YouTube channel.
