It is related that one day they came upon Majnun sifting the dust, and his tears flowing down. They said, "What doest thou?" He said, "I seek for Layli." They cried, "Alas for thee! Layli is of pure spirit, and thou seekest her in the dust!" He said, "I seek her everywhere; haply somewhere I shall find her."
(Baha'u'llah, The Seven Valleys, p. 6)

Who is Layli and why do we seek her?

...walk upon the earth as though they were in the presence of God ..

"Yet it behoveth the people of truth that the signs of humility should shine upon their faces, that the light of sanctity should radiate from their countenances, that they should walk upon the earth as though they were in the presence of God and distinguish themselves in their deeds from all the dwellers of the earth."    (Baha'u'llah)

On Sunday November 1st we are offering a splendid opportunity to 'walk upon the earth'.  We will go looking for Layli at Westmoreland Falls.  It is a fairly easy walk one hour each way though with some creek crossings involved.  Those of us who can't manage a two hour walk should not be discouraged.  The walk is reported to be marvellous from the start so its a matter of pottering along as far as you feel comfortable with whether its fifty metres or all the way to the falls.
The walk and the directions to get there are described here
and there are great photos here

We assume everybody can find Mole Creek the starting point?

We'll meet as usual at the car park at 12 noon.  bring a picnic to eat or share and if you are willing some devotional reading or whatever form of worship you prefer.
