Book 6 Intensive, Betta progress

Today began 5 days of a spiritual training session on Book 6 in the Ruhi Institute training developed for the Baha'i Faith.



The course we covered today was The Spiritual Nature of Teaching
Purpose:  To understand that teaching is an act of particular spiritual significance.  To appreciate that effective teaching involves both "being" and "doing" -- attention to one's inner condition as well as constant activity.


"O thou son of the Kingdom! All things are beneficial if joined with the love of God; and without His love all things are harmful, and act as a veil between man and the Lord of the Kingdom. 
When His love is there, every bitterness turneth sweet, and every bounty rendereth a wholesome pleasure. For example, a melody, sweet to the ear, bringeth the very spirit of life to a heart in love with God, yet staineth with lust a soul engrossed in sensual desires. 
And every branch of learning, conjoined with the love of God, is approved and worthy of praise; but bereft of His love, learning is barren -- indeed, it bringeth on madness.
Every kind of knowledge, every science, is as a tree: if the fruit of it be the love of God, then is it a blessed tree, but if not, that tree is but dried-up wood, and shall only feed the fire."    
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 190) (Book 6 p. 34)

So while we concentrated on spiritual development, meanwhile back at home, my fish were spawning and the fry were growing:



I am not sure about this fish. He's not picking up the eggs or tending them very well. We'll see in a few days.


The fry, on the other hand, are nearly 1/2 inch long and developing nicely.


The cats knocked over my bbs hatchery but fortunately, there were enough still alive to feed the babies when I got home.



They are enjoying the hunt!
