Know, moreover, that should one who hath attained unto these stations

and embarked upon these journeys fall prey to pride and vainglory, he

would at that very moment come to naught and return to the first step

without realizing it. Indeed, they that seek and yearn after Him in these

journeys are known by this sign, that they humbly defer to those who have

believed in God and in His verses, that they are lowly before those who

have drawn nigh unto Him and unto the Manifestations of His Beauty, and

that they bow in submission to them that are firmly established upon the

lofty heights of the Cause of God and before its majesty.
