“O ye seekers of Truth!…”

O ye 1 seekers of Truth!
Your letter was received and a sweet fragrance was inhaled from the rose-garden of its significances. It was an evidence of your insight, hearing and spiritual life. For, no matter if the people are living in appearance, yet they may be dead in reality. That is why His Holiness Christ, sayeth in the gospels: “Let the dead bury the dead!” 551
Praise be to God! that you have found eternal life from among the dead; that is, you have hear the call of the divine Kingdom, are attracted to the Heavenly Countenance and have turned your faces toward the Center of the Light of Truth. I hope that you continue to be a living, eternal light!
Two stones of the Most Great Name are sent enclosed with this Tablet.
1. Husband and wife.   [ Back To Reference]
