Shouldst thou desire to add perception and understanding, to become fully aware of the mysteries as deposited in the Holy Books and to spread the divine significances, it is incumbent upon thee to be straightforward in the Right Path, to be firm in the teachings and to be patient under the great test.  He who is steadfast shall grow and he who is straightforward shall succeed.


"Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha, vol.3" p. 686

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

The sun emanates from itself and does not draw its light from other sources.  The divine teachers have the innate light; they have knowledge and understanding of all things in the universe; the rest of the world receives its light from them and through them the arts and sciences are revived in each age.


"Divine Philosophy," p. 53

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