“O thou candle shining by the light of the Love of God!…”

O thou candle shining by the light of the Love of God!
That which thou hast inscribed and conceived of in thy mind was manifest and clear. The contents indicate spiritual signs and the meanings were like unto a sweet chalice. I trust in God that thy pure mind may become reflective of light; thus thou mayest become prepared for the divine manifestation and attract the light of guidance from the Heavenly Star.
O servant of God! Through the power of God’s love the weak become mighty, the poor become rich, the little bird becomes a great eagle soaring on the 64 ethereal wave, the tiny plant grows into a great palm tree.
O servant of God! Trials and tests are severe. If thou seekest progress and advancement in the Kingdom, remain firm and withstand. When it is possible for thee to visit this land 1 in all fragrance and spirituality, thou art permitted to come.
If thou canst help the up-building of the Mashrak-el-Azcar in Chicago, it will be most acceptable.
