I am a Baha'i born into the Inuit community. I declared when I was fifteen, now I am 28. For the past three years, I have been attracted to a young woman who is six years older than me and has a nine year old daughter right now. For the first two years, we were dating and over the past year we were not together but just recently we have become acquainted again and we are friends. She is working on her Master's and busy developing her own life and taking great care of her daughter. So, she has hardly any time for me let alone a romantic relationship. It has been a difficult road in this relationship but nonetheless I love her. My love for her right now is painful according to my own capacity of soul which belongs to the Glory of God. I have the pain and longing. It is hard to rest at times when this longing dwells within me. The separation is really challenging. I have to be very strong in my detachment from her, strong in self-restraint and self-control. Assuming responsibility in other things has helped me be more free in spirit and mind. Baha'u'llah was doing the work. I have no doubt that Baha'u'llah has brought her and I reunited us as she was taking some responsibility in her life as well. Baha'u'llah did this! During this process of pain, I have been praying to Baha'u'llah that this woman and I would be brought closer together in mind, body and spirit. So, if you are going through pain of love, I may understand. Keeping praying, it works!
For the love of the Ancient Beauty,
