sincerity

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on beauty, fear, god, hope, journeys, mystery, science, sincerity, and worship

Know that the science of unveiling has no end to it, for it consists in the journey of the intellect in the stations of Majesty, Beauty, Sublimeness, Grandeur, and Holiness. . . . He to whom the mysteries of La ilaha illa'llah are revealed draws near to God, and his worship of God becomes sincere. He does not turn to anyone but to Him, nor does he have hope in or fear other than Him, nor does he see harm or benefit except as coming from Him. He abandons whosoever is not He and rids himself of inward and outward associationism (shirk).

Ibn Ata'Allah

A Quote by Howard W. Hintz. DD on brothers, clarity, community, direction, family, goodwill, honesty, individuality, integrity, intelligence, nations, progress, sincerity, spirit, thinking, tolerance, understanding, and world

If we want more brotherhood and goodwill, more intelligence, more clear thinking, more honesty and sincerity, more tolerance and human understanding we must concentrate upon cultivating these qualities within ourselves. There is a natural progression in social advancement from the individual spirit to the family, to the community, to the nation and to the world at large. The line of progress can move in no other direction. There is no substitute for personal integrity.
