Just when I begin to lose faith in certain persons - whether it be heart, mind or spirit - along comes a bright star like yourself, Misagh, that restores me.
I am sure I am not alone in feeling alone much of the time. In my circumstances I am more likely to encounter the demons and the darkness - that is my profession. And because my profession bounds me to secrecy, I am extremely cautious in my friendships, since not only do I not gossip, I cannot!
... which makes me very intense, serious and sometimes obnoxious. I am able to indulge as much as I wish into the sacred texts, the challenges, the dilemmas and the paradoxes, but I refrain from idle talk, not only because it is forbidden (generally) but it is my nature.
Your way of expressing tolerance is beautiful. I wish all Baha'is shared your vision. To say, "having homosexuals in our community is EXACTLY what the Faith needs." may not be the first time it is written, I dont know, but for me it is. Alla'u'Abha!
