“O thou who art advancing unto God!…”

O thou who art advancing unto God!
Praise God that He guided thee to the Path of His Kingdom, blessed thee with the word of holiness, and 129 illumined thy heart with a light shining in the lofty Kingdom.
O maid-servant of God! Every star hath a setting, but the star of the knowledge of God in the divine heaven; every light shall darken save the light of the guidance of God; every dignity shall vanish away save the glory under the shadow of the Word of God.
Verily, I pray God to make thee firm in this Path; to cause thee to enter the Ark of Safety; and to strengthen thee in becoming humble and meek to the maid-servants of the Merciful, and in overcoming self and passion through the power of God.
