Oppression . . .

Feeling oppressed?

What if you were, truly, oppressed and weren't even aware you were?

Are you living in the Light of Truth or do you still dwell in the dark valley of falsehoods?

As today's excerpt from Reality shows, the Greatness of God is that every pain or error of our lives can become the very means to find peace and truth:

"What 'oppression' is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it?

"For opinions have sorely differed, and the ways unto the attainment of God have multiplied.

"This 'oppression' is the essential feature of every Revelation.

"Unless it cometh to pass, the Sun of Truth will not be made manifest. For
the break of the morn of divine guidance must needs follow the darkness of the night of error."

Bahá’u’lláh: The Kitáb-i-Íqán, paragraph 29, p. 29
