82: O My Servant! The Best Of Men Are They That Earn A Livelihood

O MY SERVANT! The best of men are they that earn a livelihood by their

calling and spend upon themselves and upon their kindred for the love of

God, the Lord of all worlds. The mystic and wondrous Bride, hidden ere

this beneath the veiling of utterance, hath now, by the grace of God and

His divine favor, been made manifest even as the resplendent light shed by

the beauty of the Beloved. I bear witness, O friends! that the favor is

complete, the argument fulfilled, the proof manifest and the evidence

established. Let it now be seen what your endeavors in the path of

detachment will reveal. In this wise hath the divine favor been fully

vouchsafed unto you and unto them that are in heaven and on earth. All

praise to God, the Lord of all Worlds.
