“O thou daughter of the Kingdom!…”

O thou daughter of the Kingdom!
I hope, from the Almighty, that thou mayest be confirmed to the necessities and conditions of the following address; that is, to forget this world of possession, become wholly heavenly, become embodied spirit and attain to universal mind. This arena is vast and unlimited; therein the charger of spirit must move swiftly, for here one cannot travel by foot. This gift is very great but complete and sufficient capacity is necessary.
O thou daughter of the Kingdom! The moment thou presented thyself in this prison, at the time of meeting, I realized that thou wouldst become attracted and attain to spiritual communication, such communication that as soon as the mirror of the heart is cleansed from the rust of worldly thoughts, immediately thou shalt find me reflected therein, and all the mountains, seas and deserts annihilated. Thou art present and visible and under all circumstances thou art protected by the glances of the Spirit.
Print the account which thou hast written about thy trip to Acca and spread it. 729
Shouldst thou become entirely attached to the Kingdom of Abha, thou shalt find the Holy Spirit always thy companion and shalt behold the spiritual confirmations uninterrupted.
Convey in my behalf the utmost love and kindness to each and all the friends and maid-servants of the Merciful.
Upon thee and upon them to Baha-el-Abha!
