Detachment

When reflecting on the Funds and giving, detachment is a good concept to explore. Detachment can free one from some of the things holding them back in giving to the Fund. It can also enable contributors to see how the Funds help others, and how giving of ourselves can be a type of worship to God. Bahá’u’lláh guides us in detachment by saying:

"O SON OF DUST!
Blind thine eyes, that thou mayest behold My beauty; stop thine ears, that thou mayest hearken unto the sweet melody of My voice; empty thyself of all learning, that thou mayest partake of My knowledge; and sanctify thyself from riches, that thou mayest obtain a lasting share from the ocean of My eternal wealth. Blind thine eyes, that is, to all save My beauty; stop thine ears to all save My word; empty thyself of all learning save the knowledge of Me; that with a clear vision, a pure heart and an attentive ear thou mayest enter the court of My holiness."

—Bahá’u’lláh, Hidden Words, Persian no. 11
