The everlasting Candle shineth in its naked glory. Behold how it hath consumed every mortal veil. O ye moth-like lovers of His light! Brave every danger, and consecrate your souls to its consuming flame. O ye that thirst after Him! Strip yourselves of every earthly affection, and hasten to embrace your Beloved. With a zest that none can equal make haste to attain unto Him. The Flower, thus far hidden from the sight of men, is unveiled to your eyes. In the open radiance of His glory He standeth before you. His voice summoneth all the holy and sanctified beings to come and be united with Him. Happy is he that turneth thereunto; well is it with him that hath attained, and gazed on the light of so wondrous a countenance. ~ Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings, CLI Happy Ridván! <3

March 30: Land Day in Palestine

Land Day, or ‘Youm al-Ard’ in Arabic, commemorates the day in 1976, when Israeli Occupation forces opened fire on a group of Palestinians peacefully protesting the confiscation and closure of 5,500 acres of land from villages in the Galilee. That day, Khair Mohammad Yasin, Raja Husein Abu Ria, Khader Abd Khalaileh, Khadijeh Shawahneh, Mohammad Yousef Taha, and Rafat Al Zuheiri lost their lives defending their rights; 96 were injured and more than 300 were arrested.

Dr. Rosenhan

'Dr Rosenhan' is an illustrated short, telling the story of renowned psychiatrist David Rosenhan 

who was able to demonstrate in his famous social experiment that the medical approach to abnormality is wholly unreliable. 
He was part of the anti-psychiatry movement who fiercely criticised the medical model during the 1960s. 
I illustrated this experiment because I think it’s brilliant and I wanted more people to know about it.

I have been sent @DivineDavis’ recent popular tweet - complete with the hashtag #letsamahplay - many, many times. It involves a girls’ soccer team and hijab used in protest of an unfair rule. My family and friends thought I might have missed it. Perhaps they thought I might be excited by…
