Shake Off O Heedless Ones The Slumber Of






Shake off, O heedless ones, the slumber of negligence, that ye may behold
the radiance which His glory hath spread through the world. How foolish
are those who murmur against the premature birth of His light. O ye who
are inly blind! Whether too soon or too late, the evidences of His
effulgent glory are now actually manifest. It behoveth you to ascertain
whether or not such a light hath appeared. It is neither within your power
nor mine to set the time at which it should be made manifest. God's
inscrutable Wisdom hath fixed its hour beforehand. Be content, O people,
with that which God hath desired for you and predestined unto you.... O my
ill-wishers! The Day Star of eternal Guidance beareth me witness: Had it
been in my power, I would have, under no circumstances, consented to
distinguish myself amongst men, for the Name I bear utterly disdaineth to
associate itself with this generation whose tongues are sullied and whose
hearts are false. And whenever I chose to hold my peace and be still, lo,
the voice of the Holy Ghost, standing on my right hand, aroused me, and
the Supreme Spirit appeared before my face, and Gabriel overshadowed me,
and the Spirit of Glory stirred within my bosom, bidding me arise and
break my silence. If your hearing be purged and your ears be attentive, ye
will assuredly perceive that every limb of my body, nay all the atoms of
my being, proclaim and bear witness to this call: "God, besides Whom is
none other God, and He, Whose beauty is now manifest, is the reflection of
His glory unto all that are in heaven and on earth."
