“O thou who art advancing toward the Kingdom of…”

O thou who art advancing toward the Kingdom of God!
I received thy letter and was informed of the content of thy speech.
Know thou, verily, Baha’ was the Sun of Love and Peace, who shone forth with the Light of Guidance and was a Spirit of Life to all regions. The signs of His effulgence shall appear when the love of God shall influence the hearts, just as the soul influenceth bodies. The clouds of darkness shall be dispelled from the manifest light of love and peace, and from the abundant bounty of reconciliation and tranquility.
As to thee: Do not look at thy weakness and impotence; nay, look at the power of thy Lord, which hath surrounded all regions. The sea of forgiveness hath moved and the waves of pardon and beneficence have submerged the people of sin. Be isolated from the grades of self and desire, so that thou mayest succeed in that which behooveth the service of the Kingdom of God, and that thou mayest be healed from every disease and sickness. 191
As to the “white dove,” it is the Holy Spirit. It shall flutter over thee and over the head of the beloved of God.
Verily I beseech God to assist thee with the spirit of knowledge and enable thee to be good and benevolent to all the people of religions.
