Pause & Reflect is a series that presents meditative passages from the writings of the Baha’i Faith arranged around particular themes. The theme of this volume is change. Change can be difficult and even scary. It often involves stepping outside our comfort zone or sacrificing the familiar for something new. But if we wish to grow and move forward in our individual lives and if we wish to address the myriad problems facing our world today, change is necessary. The sections of this book reflect the Baha’i perspective that three interconnected protagonists collaborate in this process: the individual, the institutions, and the community. The institutions mentioned here refer to Baha’i institutions tasked with facilitating the growth and well-being of the community. However, whether one is familiar with these institutions or not, the principles and ideas presented in this section can apply to any collective endeavor aimed at social transformation. It is hoped that the passages collected here offer some inspiration and some helpful concepts for those wishing to make changes in their lives and in the world around them.
