“O thou seeker of the Kingdom!…”

O thou seeker of the Kingdom!
The letter was received and I became acquainted with its contents.
The Cause of Baha’o’llah is the same as the Cause of Christ. It is the same Temple and the same Foundation. Both of these are spiritual springtimes and seasons of the soul-refreshing awakening and the cause of the renovation of the life of mankind. The spring of this year is the same as the spring of last year. The origins and ends are the same. The sun of today is the sun of yesterday. In the coming of Christ, the divine teachings were given in accordance with the infancy of the human race. The teachings of Baha’o’llah have the same basic principles, but are according to the stage of the maturity of the world and the requirements of this illumined age.
O thou seeker of the Kingdom! Make thou an effort so that thou mayest partake from the spiritual Supper of the Lord. At that time every difficulty will become easy, and every trouble will be conducive to the tranquility of the heart and soul.
I supplicate God that thy spiritual sight be opened so that thou mayest behold the mysteries of the Kingdom 536 and become the cause of ease, adornment, reconciliation, faithfulness and uprightness in the human world.
