Unlocking The Gate Of The Heart
Keys to Personal Transformation: A Bahá'í Approach
by Lasse Thoresen
Exercises to enable us to draw closer to God and to develop our spiritual potential.
'Unlock, O people, the gates of the hearts of men with the keys of the remembrance of Him Who is the Remembrance of God and the Source of wisdom amongst you.' Bahá'u'lláh
'. . . is not the object of every Revelation to effect a transformation in the whole character of mankind, a transformation that shall manifest itself both outwardly and inwardly, that shall affect both its inner life and external conditions.' Bahá'u'lláh
The greatest need of our time is to restore human dignity and honour to the whole human race. A spiritual revival of the individual and society is the greatest challenge facing humanity.
Through an examination of the Bahá'í writings and suggestions for spiritual exercises based on them, Lasse Thoreson helps readers
to gain an understanding of their place in creation
learn, step by step, how to change their attitudes and life styles, and
to discover the methods to use in their search for greater perfection
thus empowering them to serve humankind and to help create a world society based on spiritual and moral values.
'In this remarkable book the author helps the eager student to gain, in the light of the Bahá'í holy writings, an understanding of his place in creation, to learn step by step how to change his attitude and life style, and to find out what methods to use in his search for greater perfection, thus empowering him to serve humankind in the most befitting manner.'
