Tear Asunder In My Name The Veils That






Tear asunder, in My Name, the veils that have grievously blinded your
vision, and, through the power born of your belief in the unity of God,
scatter the idols of vain imitation. Enter, then, the holy paradise of the
good-pleasure of the All-Merciful. Sanctify your souls from whatsoever is
not of God, and taste ye the sweetness of rest within the pale of His vast
and mighty Revelation, and beneath the shadow of His supreme and
infallible authority. Suffer not yourselves to be wrapt in the dense veils
of your selfish desires, inasmuch as I have perfected in every one of you
My creation, so that the excellence of My handiwork may be fully revealed
unto men. It follows, therefore, that every man hath been, and will
continue to be, able of himself to appreciate the Beauty of God, the
Glorified. Had he not been endowed with such a capacity, how could he be
called to account for his failure? If, in the Day when all the peoples of
the earth will be gathered together, any man should, whilst standing in
the presence of God, be asked: "Wherefore hast thou disbelieved in My
Beauty and turned away from My Self," and if such a man should reply and
say: "Inasmuch as all men have erred, and none hath been found willing to
turn his face to the Truth, I, too, following their example, have
grievously failed to recognize the Beauty of the Eternal," such a plea
will, assuredly, be rejected. For the faith of no man can be conditioned
by any one except himself.

This is one of the verities that lie enshrined in My Revelation--a verity
which I have revealed in all the heavenly Books, which I have caused the
Tongue of Grandeur to utter, and the Pen of Power to inscribe. Ponder a
while thereon, that with both your inner and outer eye, ye may perceive
the subtleties of Divine wisdom and discover the gems of heavenly
knowledge which, in clear and weighty language, I have revealed in this
exalted and incorruptible Tablet, and that ye may not stray far from the
All-Highest Throne, from the Tree beyond which there is no passing, from
the Habitation of everlasting might and glory.

The signs of God shine as manifest and resplendent as the sun amidst the
works of His creatures. Whatsoever proceedeth from Him is apart, and will
always remain distinguished, from the inventions of men. From the Source
of His knowledge countless Luminaries of learning and wisdom have risen,
and out of the Paradise of His Pen the breath of the All-Merciful hath
continually been wafted to the hearts and souls of men. Happy are they
that have recognized this truth.
