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?

Walking the edge

"They walk the edge of a treacherous bank and tread the brink of a fiery abyss." (Baha'u'llah)

Baha'u'llah was actually referring to those who turn away from God and reminding us of the danger they face as described in the Quran but looking down into Leven Canyon it does feel like the edge though the excellent paths and well constructed look-outs make it perfectly safe.
A nice day, a pleasant walk, some spectacular views, and a jovial picnic with joyous prayers. Perfect!

So perfect and comprehensive is His creation that no mind nor heart, however keen or pure, can ever grasp the nature of the most insignificant of His creatures; much less fathom the mystery of Him Who is the Day Star of Truth, Who is the invisible and unknowable Essence. (Baha'u'llah)
