"I am a Bahai! . . . My spirit is elevated"

David has been searching for spirituality and he has visited different churches and mosques. When visiting different religious groups, sometimes he felt sad when he noticed that some groups excluded others.  David felt that there shouldn't be divisions because humankind "is one." David was specially inspired by the beauty of Baha'u'llah's writings, he also expressed that the principles of the Faith were in accordance with his own beliefs.  He believes that we are one human family.  He understands and believes in the concept of Progressive Revelation. After hearing a presentation of the Faith and being asked if he believed in Baha'u'llah, the principles and laws of the Baha'i Faith, he said "yes, I'm a Baha'i."  We didn't have a registration card with us, instead we had him register his declaration using the online form.  David was very happy and later on he shared some of his feelings in this way:

"Baha'u'lah is the true successor in the line of Prophets, the new Manifestation of God. I feel like my heart found peace since I became a member of the Baha'i community. To be able to reconcile my morals with my spirituality is wonderful. Thank you for praying over me and helping with my journey. I feel like the traveler who finally catches sight of his destination. Sure, there is a journey still ahead, but my spirit is elevated and my steps are longer already."
