As was apparent from my last entry here, Ive been going through some major changes in my spiritual life. It really started with the addition of meditation to my spiritual practice. Naturally, I would meditate on Bahai words and themes, but I found that thoughts about the online conflicts and problems in the Bahai community always intruded. Now, extraneous thoughts always intrude when one is beginning to meditate, but in my case, they were negative and anxiety-producing. I got to a place where I just felt very confused, so one night, I recited a tablet of Bahaullahs that is supposed to give one answers in dreams -- and the answer I got, through some fairly obvious symbols, was that as long as I stayed within a Bahai framework, I would be stuck in a place of hurt and grief and that there were other things waiting for me.
