“O seeker of Truth!…”

O seeker of Truth!
If thou desirest that God may open thy (spiritual) eye, thou must supplicate unto God, pray to and commune with Him at midnight, saying:
“O Lord, I have turned my face unto thy Kingdom of Oneness and am drowned in the sea of Thy mercy! O 677 Lord, enlighten my sight by beholding Thy lights in this dark night, and make me happy by the wine of Thy love in this wonderful age! O Lord, make me hear Thy call, and open before my face the doors of Thy heaven, so that I may see the light of Thy glory (Baha’) and become attracted to Thy beauty!
“Verily, thou art the Giver, the Generous, the Merciful, the Forgiving!”
At that time such signs will appear which will guide thee to the Kingdom of Thy Lord, the Merciful.
The babe dressed in the white garment that gave thee the jessamine is a fragrance of the fragrances of God, reared through His love, a sign of His signs and a breeze of His breezes. It hath a wonderful power and there shall be for it astonishing states to the minds and spirits. Understand what I say to thee through the best of symbols.
