Say: O people! The Tree of Life hath verily been planted in the heart

of the heavenly paradise and bestoweth life in every direction. How can ye

fail to perceive and recognize it? It will in truth aid thee to grasp all

that this well-assured Soul hath disclosed unto thee of the essence of the

divine mysteries. The Dove of holiness warbleth in the heaven of

immortality and admonisheth thee to array thyself with a new vesture,

wrought of steel to shield thee from the shafts of doubt concealed in the

allusions of men, saying: "Except a man be born of water and of the

Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the

flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not

that I said unto thee, ye must be born again."(49)
