“O thou who art kindled by the fire of the Love of God!…”

O thou who art kindled by the fire of the Love of God!
Rejoice through the fragrance of God and be attracted by the melodies of the holy birds in the garden of the gifts of God! Verily, I, with great humbleness and submissiveness before the abundance of His mercy, do roll my face upon the dust to make thee a sign of unity and a gift of mercy, that thou mayest be, in all aspects and cases, near to the Kingdom of God.
Blessed thou art for this great abundance! Glad-tidings unto thee because of this manifest light! By the life of God! a single drop of the ocean of His love is more profitable unto thee than the earth and that which is thereupon, because this will vanish and perish, but that drop of love will remain eternally and everlastingly in the worlds of God.
