The Pen Of The Most High Is Unceasingly

The Pen of the Most High is unceasingly calling; and yet, how few are
those that have inclined their ear to its voice! The dwellers of the
kingdom of names have busied themselves with the gay livery of the world,
forgetful that every man that hath eyes to perceive and ears to hear
cannot but readily recognize how evanescent are its colors.

A new life is, in this age, stirring within all the peoples of the earth;
and yet none hath discovered its cause or perceived its motive. Consider
the peoples of the West. Witness how, in their pursuit of that which is
vain and trivial, they have sacrificed, and are still sacrificing,
countless lives for the sake of its establishment and promotion. The
peoples of Persia, on the other hand, though the repository of a
perspicuous and luminous Revelation, the glory of whose loftiness and
renown hath encompassed the whole earth, are dispirited and sunk in deep

O friends! Be not careless of the virtues with which ye have been endowed,
neither be neglectful of your high destiny. Suffer not your labors to be
wasted through the vain imaginations which certain hearts have devised. Ye
are the stars of the heaven of understanding, the breeze that stirreth at
the break of day, the soft-flowing waters upon which must depend the very
life of all men, the letters inscribed upon His sacred scroll. With the
utmost unity, and in a spirit of perfect fellowship, exert yourselves,
that ye may be enabled to achieve that which beseemeth this Day of God.
Verily I say, strife and dissension, and whatsoever the mind of man
abhorreth are entirely unworthy of his station. Center your energies in
the propagation of the Faith of God. Whoso is worthy of so high a calling,
let him arise and promote it. Whoso is unable, it is his duty to appoint
him who will, in his stead, proclaim this Revelation, whose power hath
caused the foundations of the mightiest structures to quake, every
mountain to be crushed into dust, and every soul to be dumbfounded. Should
the greatness of this Day be revealed in its fullness, every man would
forsake a myriad lives in his longing to partake, though it be for one
moment, of its great glory--how much more this world and its corruptible

Be ye guided by wisdom in all your doings, and cleave ye tenaciously unto
it. Please God ye may all be strengthened to carry out that which is the
Will of God, and may be graciously assisted to appreciate the rank
conferred upon such of His loved ones as have arisen to serve Him and
magnify His name. Upon them be the glory of God, the glory of all that is
in the heavens and all that is on the earth, and the glory of the inmates
of the most exalted Paradise, the heaven of heavens.
