"O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be
a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting."
"O SON OF SPIRIT! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou
desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own
eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the
knowledge of thy neighbour. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behoveth thee to be. Verily justice is My
gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes."
"O SON OF MAN! Veiled in My immemorial being and in the ancient eternity of My essence, I knew My love
for thee; therefore I created thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee My beauty."
"O SON OF BEING! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach
Know this, O servant."
"O SON OF BEING! Thou art My lamp and My light is in thee. Get thou from it thy radiance and seek none
other than Me. For I have created thee rich and have bountifully shed My favour upon thee."
"O SON OF SPIRIT! I created thee rich, why dost thou bring thyself down to poverty? Noble I made thee,
wherewith dost thou abase thyself? Out of the essence of knowledge I gave thee being, why seekest thou
enlightenment from anyone beside Me? Out of the clay of love I moulded thee, how dost thou busy thyself
with another? Turn thy sight unto thyself, that thou mayest find Me standing within thee, mighty,
powerful and self-subsisting."
"O SON OF THE WONDROUS VISION! I have breathed within thee a breath of My own Spirit, that thou mayest
My lover. Why hast thou forsaken Me and sought a beloved other than Me?"
