“O thou attracted maid-servant of God!…”

O thou attracted maid-servant of God!
Thy letter was received. Its contents were redolent with spiritual emotion. Praise be unto God! who hath created sanctified souls, illumining them with the reflections of the Sun of Truth, and raising certain persons for the service of the Kingdom and gardening in the divine orchard. I hope thou wilt become a fruitful tree producing sweet fruits. Trust thou in the bounties of God and engage thyself in His service.
Praise be to God! that thou feelest progress in the luminous realm through divine love. This very fact denotes that, God willing, thou art to be a fruitful tree; nay, rather, thou wilt become a rose-garden of the hyacinths 1 of realities and significances. Supplicate God that thou mayest become so. Verily this is not impossible for God to fulfill!
1. See foot note page 479. Here it implies the wisdom which comes from knowledge of realities and significations.   [ Back To Reference]
