Dear loyal readers,

My blog has been going for just over a year now and it has been a great success. But I have decided that I need to cut back on the amount of writing I am doing. I pushed myself too hard last year and have suffered for it. I began to get serious RSI in my arms and now I find it difficult to put my heart into writing any one thing because I am spread too thin. In addition to the writing I do for the Faith, I write for a living and so I am writing all the time. I have therefore decided to cut back, so that I can put energy into the important things I want to develop.

What does this mean? Firstly, it means that I can no longer sustain writing a blog. I do plan to keep writing about the revelation and producing podcasts, but this won't be as often as it has been. I have decided that future meditations will go on Steve's site, Bahais Online: My first contribution to Bahais Online has already gone up, with my short article about the Gospel of Judas.

In the long term, I plan to move the archives of this site to the area on my personal site that contains my writings: But that is not a priority, so if you have links to this site, there is no rush to change them.

The project that I want to develop has already begun with the introductions I have been writing to the tablets of Baha'u'llah. I want to keep writing these as well as background material for them, in order to develop a comprehensive online study site. The site will cater for a wide audience: Baha'i, non-Baha'i, the complete novice and people knowledgable about the Faith. I feel strongly that good-quality study materials should be provided for the Baha'is and anyone wanting to learn about the Faith without getting entangled in the unpleasantness of the Baha'i community.

Cheers, Alison
