Discourse By 'abdu'l-baha Given At The Unity Meeting Of Misses Jack And Herrick






September 22nd, 1911.


It is a cold and miserable day but as I was anxious to see you I came
here. For a man who has love, effort is a rest. He will travel any
distance to visit his friends.

Thank God I see you spiritual and at rest; I give you this message from
God; that you must be turned toward Him. Praise God that you are near Him!
The unworthy things of this world have not deterred you from seeking the
world of Spirit. When in harmony with that world, you care not for the
things that perish; your desire is for that which never dies and the
Kingdom lies open before you. I hope that the teaching of God will spread
throughout the world, and will cause all to be united.

In the time of Jesus Christ there was an outpouring of the Light from East
to West that brought the people under a heavenly banner and illumined them
with divine insight. Western lands have been kindled by the Light of the
Christ. I pray earnestly that the Light in this advanced age will so
illumine the world that all may rally under the banner of Unity and
receive Spiritual education.

Then those problems which cause difference among the peoples of the earth
will be seen no more, for verily they are not. You are all waves of one
sea, mirrors of one reflection.

This day the countries of Europe are at rest; Education has become
widespread. The light of liberty is the light of the West, and the
intention of government is to work for truth and justice in Western
countries. But ever the light of spirituality shines from out of the East.
In this age that light has become dimmed; religion has become a matter of
form and ceremony and the desire for God's love has been lost.

In very age of great spiritual darkness, a light is kindled in the East.
So once again the light of the teachings of God has come unto you. Even as
education and progress travel from West to East, so does the spiritual
fire travel from East to West.

I hope that the people of the West may be illumined by the light of God;
that the Kingdom may come to them, that they may find eternal Life, that
the Spirit of God may spread like a fire among them, that they may be
baptized with the Water of Life and may find a new birth.

This is my desire; I hope by the will of God, He will cause you to receive
it, and will make you happy.

In the same way that you have education and material progress so may the
light of God be your portion.

God keep all of you in safety.
