Here's more of that inspiring story.
"YOU CAN KILL ME IF YOU LIKE.. but you cannot stop the emancipation of women!" That's what Tahirih said after she threw off her veil in 1848 Persia.
Here's more of that inspiring story.
In the end, they did put an end to this strong, amazing woman whose legacy continues. She lived at the convergence of two powerful faith teachings. So many wonders brought to earth started with amazing Masters such as she and the Ones who inspired her. She was battered, but it didn't stop her truth from flowing. For those who may reject the source of this great transformation, begun then and now continuing, I have no objection to that--it is the privilege of freedom!!
Community & Unity built on spiritual foundations
What other way is there to save this ailing world ?
Its a vision of "an alternative society which is not based on greed and competition, but rather on cooperation and service to community members... spreading to a world-wide community mainly by actions of inspired youth." *

Now if that is not inspiring, what could be ?!!
Its true that this is begun by a somewhat "organized religion", which is a bone to pick for many, This faith has been one that's so purposeful, unusual &inspired as to throw its resources to empower all humanity. There's no other group so highly motivated to let go of nature's strong attachments to its own, to its ownership of sources or promotion of its name. And that is truly happening! Surely the name and source are vital, but they are not the center-- Simply, if this world is to beunified and healed, then someone's got to start it, and pour into it their all !
I FOUND MYSELF thinking--
Just how great it is to be a part of the most healing, cutting edge, amazing movement ever on the earth!!! :))
I believe this is one small representative of that much bigger picture, opening a door to something hugely bigger ... Clearly its not be be- all, end- all-search for everyone, but truly, I (and most of us in this) believe it's the starting point of the biggest, healthiest transformation ever to captivate & motivate the people of the world. For those who would investigate it, there is much support for that. For those who don't, well only time will tell.

Kwanzaa "is from a communitarian African philosophy.". Its principles offer us much to learn from as we strive to grow the spirit of community. It is celebrated in December.
Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles:
Families celebrating Kwanzaa decorate their households with objects of art, colorful African cloth such as kente, especially the wearing of kaftans by women, and fresh fruits that represent African idealism. It is customary to include children in Kwanzaa ceremonies and to give respect and gratitude to ancestors. Libations are shared, generally with a common chalice, Kikombe cha Umoja, passed around to all celebrants. Non-African Americans also celebrate Kwanzaa. The holiday greeting is "Joyous Kwanzaa".
