“O thou who art gazing toward the Kingdom!…”

O thou who art gazing toward the Kingdom!
Thy letter was received. Its contents became known. Thank thou God that thy house became the shelter and 698 the nest of the birds of the Kingdom. The spiritual assembly was arranged. Abdul-Baha, in His heart, was present in your gathering and His spirit was gazing upon you.
In order to render thanks for this gift, you must become engaged in creating harmony and union to such an extent that all of you may become as one soul and one spirit; that you may become waves of one sea, breezes of one rose-garden, flowers of one meadow and trees of one orchard. You must devote your time to the training of yourselves and the guidance of souls.
Thy house is my house. Therefore, it must become adorned with the lights of the Kingdom.
