Whatever Is In The Heavens And Whatever Is On






Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is a direct
evidence of the revelation within it of the attributes and names of God,
inasmuch as within every atom are enshrined the signs that bear eloquent
testimony to the revelation of that Most Great Light. Methinks, but for
the potency of that revelation, no being could ever exist. How resplendent
the luminaries of knowledge that shine in an atom, and how vast the oceans
of wisdom that surge within a drop! To a supreme degree is this true of
man, who, among all created things, hath been invested with the robe of
such gifts, and hath been singled out for the glory of such distinction.
For in him are potentially revealed all the attributes and names of God to
a degree that no other created being hath excelled or surpassed. All these
names and attributes are applicable to him. Even as He hath said: "Man is
My mystery, and I am his mystery." Manifold are the verses that have been
repeatedly revealed in all the Heavenly Books and the Holy Scriptures,
expressive of this most subtle and lofty theme. Even as He hath revealed:
"We will surely show them Our signs in the world and within themselves."
Again He saith: "And also in your own selves: will ye not, then, behold
the signs of God?" And yet again He revealeth: "And be ye not like those
who forget God, and whom He hath therefore caused to forget their own
selves." In this connection, He Who is the eternal King--may the souls of
all that dwell within the mystic Tabernacle be a sacrifice unto Him--hath
spoken: "He hath known God who hath known himself."

...From that which hath been said it becometh evident that all things, in
their inmost reality, testify to the revelation of the names and
attributes of God within them. Each according to its capacity, indicateth,
and is expressive of, the knowledge of God. So potent and universal is
this revelation, that it hath encompassed all things visible and
invisible. Thus hath He revealed: "Hath aught else save Thee a power of
revelation which is not possessed by Thee, that it could have manifested
Thee? Blind is the eye which doth not perceive Thee." Likewise hath the
eternal King spoken: "No thing have I perceived, except that I perceived
God within it, God before it, or God after it." Also in the tradition of
Kumayl it is written: "Behold, a light hath shone forth out of the morn of
eternity, and lo, its waves have penetrated the inmost reality of all
men." Man, the noblest and most perfect of all created things, excelleth
them all in the intensity of this revelation, and is a fuller expression
of its glory. And of all men, the most accomplished, the most
distinguished, and the most excellent are the Manifestations of the Sun of
Truth. Nay, all else besides these Manifestations, live by the operation
of Their Will, and move and have their being through the outpourings of
Their grace.
