This Is The Day Whereon The Ocean Of God's

This is the Day whereon the Ocean of God's mercy hath been manifested unto

men, the Day in which the Day Star of His loving-kindness hath shed its

radiance upon them, the Day in which the clouds of His bountiful favor

have overshadowed the whole of mankind. Now is the time to cheer and

refresh the down-cast through the invigorating breeze of love and

fellowship, and the living waters of friendliness and charity.

They who are the beloved of God, in whatever place they gather and

whomsoever they may meet, must evince, in their attitude towards God, and

in the manner of their celebration of His praise and glory, such humility

and submissiveness that every atom of the dust beneath their feet may

attest the depth of their devotion. The conversation carried by these holy

souls should be informed with such power that these same atoms of dust

will be thrilled by its influence. They should conduct themselves in such

manner that the earth upon which they tread may never be allowed to

address to them such words as these: "I am to be preferred above you. For

witness, how patient I am in bearing the burden which the husbandman

layeth upon me. I am the instrument that continually imparteth unto all

beings the blessings with which He Who is the Source of all grace hath

entrusted me. Notwithstanding the honor conferred upon me, and the

unnumbered evidences of my wealth--a wealth that supplieth the needs of all

creation--behold the measure of my humility, witness with what absolute

submissiveness I allow myself to be trodden beneath the feet of men...."

Show forbearance and benevolence and love to one another. Should any one

among you be incapable of grasping a certain truth, or be striving to

comprehend it, show forth, when conversing with him, a spirit of extreme

kindliness and good-will. Help him to see and recognize the truth, without

esteeming yourself to be, in the least, superior to him, or to be

possessed of greater endowments.

The whole duty of man in this Day is to attain that share of the flood of

grace which God poureth forth for him. Let none, therefore, consider the

largeness or smallness of the receptacle. The portion of some might lie in

the palm of a man's hand, the portion of others might fill a cup, and of

others even a gallon-measure.

Every eye, in this Day, should seek what will best promote the Cause of

God. He, Who is the Eternal Truth, beareth Me witness! Nothing whatever

can, in this Day, inflict a greater harm upon this Cause than dissension

and strife, contention, estrangement and apathy, among the loved ones of

God. Flee them, through the power of God and His sovereign aid, and strive

ye to knit together the hearts of men, in His Name, the Unifier, the

All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Beseech ye the one true God to grant that ye may taste the savor of such

deeds as are performed in His path, and partake of the sweetness of such

humility and submissiveness as are shown for His sake. Forget your own

selves, and turn your eyes towards your neighbor. Bend your energies to

whatever may foster the education of men. Nothing is, or can ever be,

hidden from God. If ye follow in His way, His incalculable and

imperishable blessings will be showered upon you. This is the luminous

Tablet, whose verses have streamed from the moving Pen of Him Who is the

Lord of all worlds. Ponder it in your hearts, and be ye of them that

observe its precepts.
