- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
In this talk, produced by the wonderful team behind Bahaiteachings.org, actor and My Last Days creator Justin Baldoni asks, “What if birth and death are actually the same?” Justin compares the world of the womb to this world and speaks about the physical attributes that we develop in utero in order to use them here. He very movingly describes the birth of his daughter, passing through a dark tunnel into the light, and hopes he will one day greet her joyously once more, when she passes from this world to the next. He wonders whether the prophets of God— such as Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and Baha’u’llah—described death as a beautiful, spiritual transition because They knew where we’re all going. To finish, Justin asks one more question: “What are you spending your time developing?”
