Know also that the soul is endowed with two wings: should it soar in the atmosphere of love and contentment, then it will be related to the All-Merciful.  And should it fly in the atmosphere of self and desire, then it will pertain to the Evil One; may God shield and protect us and protect you therefrom, O ye who perceive!


"The Summons of the Lord of Hosts," p. 153

Blessed is he who mingleth with all men in a spirit of utmost kindliness and love. ~Baha'u'llah

O Children of Adam!  Holy words and pure and goodly deeds ascend unto the heaven of celestial glory.  Strive that your deeds may be cleansed from the dust of self and hypocrisy and find favor at the court of glory; for ere long the assayers of mankind shall, in the holy presence of the Adored One, accept naught but absolute virtue and deeds of stainless purity.  This is the daystar of wisdom and of divine mystery that hath shone above the horizon of the divine will.  Blessed are they that turn thereunto.

Whoso hath known God shall know none but Him, and he that feareth God shall be afraid of no one except Him, though the powers of the whole earth rise up and be arrayed against him.

If ye become aware of a sin committed by another, conceal it, that God may conceal your own sin.  He, verily, is the Concealer, the Lord of grace abounding.  O ye rich ones on earth! If ye encounter one who is poor, treat him not disdainfully.  Reflect upon that whereof ye were created.  Every one of you was created of a sorry germ.  It behoveth you to observe truthfulness, whereby your temples shall be adorned, your names uplifted, your stations exalted amidst men, and a mighty recompense assured for you before God.

He, verily, hath willed for you that which is yet beyond your knowledge, but which shall be known to you when, after this fleeting life, your souls soar heavenwards and the trappings of your earthly joys are folded up.  Thus admonisheth you He in Whose possession is the Guarded Tablet.
