The magnet of your love brought me to this country. My hope is that the
Divine Light may shine here, and that the Heavenly Star of Baha'u'llah may
strengthen you, so that you may be the cause of the oneness of humanity,
that you may help to make the darkness of superstition and prejudice
disappear and unite all creeds and nations.
This is a brilliant century. Eyes are now open to the beauty of the
oneness of humanity, of love and of brotherhood. The darkness of
suppression will disappear and the light of unity will shine. We cannot
bring love and unity to pass merely by talking of it. Knowledge is not
enough. Wealth, science, education are good, we know: but we must also
work and study to bring to maturity the fruit of knowledge.
Knowledge is the first step; resolve, the second step; action, its
fulfillment, is the third step. To construct a building one must first of
all make a plan, then one must have the power (money), then one can build.
A society of Unity is formed, that is good--but meetings and discussions
are not enough. In Egypt these meetings take place but there is only talk
and no result. These meetings here in London are good, the knowledge and
the intention are good, but how can there be a result without action?
Today the force for Unity is the Holy Spirit of Baha'u'llah. He manifested
this spirit of Unity. Baha'u'llah brings East and West together. Go back,
search history, you will not find a precedent for this.
