I did this posting at several internet sites and have revised that post many times in these last four years as developments in the paradigm have come about, as new messages from Baháí institutions have been published and as many individuals have commented verbally and in print on this new Bahai culture.

Here are some specific steps on how to access this article, what is now a book of more than 170,000 words and nearly 400 pages. It is found at Baha’i Library Online(BLO). With the publication on 21/4/’10 of an 8,000 word message from the Universal House of Justice and the 10,000 word message to the Continental Boards of Counsellors on 28/12/’10—two of the longest messages of the Formative Age since a charismatic Force in the Person of Baha’u’llah was institutionalized in the Person of Abdul-Baha and then in the Guardianship and, in 1963, effloresced in that apex of Bahai administration—the Universal House of Justice.In the time this book has been on the internet there have been many thousand views of this analysis, this statement on the new paradigm at the few sites where it has been posted.

In addition to googling “Baha’i Culture of Learning and Growth” and accessing this article in the process at several internet sites, readers can find this piece of writing at BLO by clicking on the following:bahai-library.org/file.php?file=price_cultu...Readers can also access the latest edition of this article at BLO by taking the following steps: (i) type Baha’i Library Online or Baha’i Academics Resource Library into your search engine- (ii) click on the small box “By author” at the top of the access page at BLO- (iii) type “Price” into the small box that appears and then click on the word “Go-” and then (iv) scroll down to article/document item #44, and (v) finally click on that item enabling you to read to your heart’s content.

When your eyes and your mind start to glaze over, stop reading. The article can be downloaded free- you will have access to this book, this context for all this new paradigmatic terminology that has come into the Baha’i community in the last 15 years with an integration of the most recent and relevant passages from House of Justice messages.My statement, my book, is a personal one, does not assume an adversarial attitude, attempts to give birth of as fine an etiquette of expression as I can muster and, I like to think, possesses both candour and critical thought on the one hand and praise and delight at the many interrelated processes involved in the execution of this paradigm on the other.

I invite readers to what I also like to think is “a context on which relevant fundamental questions” regarding this new paradigm may be discussed within the Baha’i community. This book places in context what I want to illustrate, namely, my take on this new Bahai paradigm after a decade and a half of its implementation. My book possesses no authority. Indeed, such a remark hardly needs saying.One of the advantages of the BLO site is the freedom it gives to a writer to update his or her article or book right on the site in an ongoing process as new insights from major thinkers in the Baha’i community and information from the elected and appointed institutions of the Cause comes to hand.

If time and the inclination permit, check it out. No worries, no obligation, just if it interests you. You may find the piece of writing too long as I’m sure many readers do. It is certainly a view from the inside, but it is just one person’s view building as it does on the ideas and writings of others: Baháí institutions and individuals. We each have a different experience on the inside of this paradigm, on the inside of this Faith or, indeed, living on the inside of our global society.

You may find this book too personal due to the fact that I attempt to answer the questions: “where do I fit into this new paradigm?” “what have I done?” and “where am I going in my service to the wider community and in the exercise of my spiritual obligation to teach the Cause.

After a few paragraphs of reading, you will get the flavour of the exercise. Just keep reading if your mind and spirit are enjoying the process.-----------------------------------------Readers can find a 6000 word commentary and context for the 2011 Ridvan message at the Scribd site by googling the words: RonPrice at Scribd.
