The Baha'i World View
Baha'u'llah has brought this revelation that we are all members of one human family and we're working toward this idea of universal peace.
The legacy of the 20th century is really the world recognizing that it is one world.
At the start of the 1900s, countries were a lot more separated, both politically and otherwise. And because of many of the events that happened during that century, humans were a lot more connected.
If you just look at systems of communication and the internet, people can communicate with each other instantaneously from all over the world. Now, the challenge is how can we spiritually be connected and how can we catch up our spiritual selves to our material selves?
The message of Baha'u'llah, what makes it so transformative is that it speaks in this day for the very first time of the true unity of the entire human race.
In this period of transformation that we're in right now, the world is going from a state of infancy to a state of maturity.
