Betraying the Messenger

"Those who are sent to be close to the Messenger must become developed, educated and strong, strong with the power of Knowledge, or they could betray him to those forces who will seek to undermine and to thwart his presence in the world." [1]

Betrayed by the World

"If you feel that the world has betrayed you and your greater hopes and ambitions, what can you give here? If you feel that the world is an evil place that has denied the greater ideals and greater aspirations of human beings, what can you give here? Giving begins with understanding and acceptance." [2]

Betrayed by the Truth

"If you have ever felt that the truth betrayed you, then you have not recognized its value. Perhaps it disappointed your plans and goals. Perhaps you lost something you really wanted. Perhaps it prevented you from seeking something that was desirable. But in all cases it has saved you from pain and misery." [3]

The Judas Role

"Do not think that you can do a better plan for presenting this to the world. Do not play the Judas role. Do not betray the Messenger."[4]

"Do not look for the elite or the highly respectable to risk their position to bear witness to the Revelation. Do not think that the Messenger only needs to be connected with certain powerful people, for you will be playing the Judas role here—well intentioned, perhaps, but blind to the reality of the situation." [5]

"The thing that betrays us, the real traitor, the Judas, is the pursuit of happiness–the thing that seems most noble and embraceable and the thing you can share most easily with people, the pursuit of happiness, the desire for happiness. So why do I say that’s a traitor? It seems so normal, so natural, so acceptable. It’s because if you’re committed to that pursuit of happiness, you will compromise yourself." [6]
