In 'The Journey, ' Nahid V. Meshgin shares her uniquely inspiring personal and spiritual journey. Set across four continents - Asia, North America, Europe and Australia- her story is marked by stark contrasts, exciting opportunities and unexpected challenges as Nahid experiences both privilege and loss, religious persecution, exile from the land of her birth, major life milestones far from her family, the struggle to build a new life in distant lands and the desire to create a sense of community and belonging in her new home country.
Interwoven throughout Nahid's remarkable journey, she shares a number of the key spiritual principles and timeless virtues which have assisted her to tread a path of love, faith and service. These include, courage, trust, hope, honesty, justice, faithfulness, excellence, reverence, generosity, humility, orderliness, loyalty, respect, courtesy, detachment and love. Ever guided by the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith, Nahid weaves her experiences and insights, into a rich tapestry of family, faith and fellowship.
Ultimately, Nahid's story is a reflection of her heartfelt belief in the possibility of a future global community characterised by love, peace, compassion, diversity and justice. Importantly, her book invites us all to see beyond our differences to the oneness of humanity; to appreciate we are more similar than different, more connected than separate and each share an underlying desire to live in peace.
