"The Great Being saith: The heaven of divine wisdom is illumined with the two luminaries of consultation and compassion. Take ye counsel together in all matters, inasmuch as consultation is the lamp of guidance which leadeth the way, and is the bestower of understanding. " "The maturity of the gift of understanding is made manifest through consultation."
"Tablets of Bahá'u'lláh
"The question of consultation is of the utmost importance, and is one of the most potent instruments conducive to the tranquillity and felicity of the people." And, toward the Protection of Diversity, "The shining spark of truth, cometh forth only after the clash of differing opinions." 'Abdu'l-Bahá
You will want to have an oversight committee of nine which contribute perspectives of the homeless, business owners, service and faith organizations, neighbors, and city government. From all these views, through a new protocol of consultation with compassion, brilliant decisions are inspired. When the decisions are unreservedly supported, without majority or minority opinions, any developing dysfunctions can be quickly identified and corrected. This section of the Guide will also offer a map of how the committee can assess the areas of need in the city, and correctly align the material and human resources available to meet those needs. As homelessness becomes healed, the foundational principles may be expanded to improve the economy and quality of life at higher levels.
