Letter of 4 September 1949
To an individual believer
Dear Spiritual Brother:
He can only offer you, sincerely, his advice, which is to overcome whatever obstacles are hindering you from active membership in the Bahá’í Community. Man-made things are one thing, and God-given things another. It is not spiritually healthy to recognize the Revelation of God for this age—or at any period in history to recognize a Revelation sent by God for our good and development—and not embrace it. There is no middle course open for the soul who has found the Eternal Beloved. He must serve Him, or he will grow cold and spiritually confused.
