“The light of the people of the world is their knowledge and utterance; while the splendours shed from the glorious acts of Him Whom God shall make manifest are His Words, through whose potency He rolleth up the whole world of existence, sets it under His Own authority by relating it unto Himself, then as the Mouthpiece of God, the Source of His divine light—exalted and glorified be He—proclaimeth: ‘Verily, verily, I am God, no God is there but Me; in truth all others except Me are My creatures. Say, O My creatures! Me alone, therefore, should ye fear’.”

“La gente de discernimiento es amante del sol, no se deja fascinar por los lugares donde surge y alborea. La gente perceptiva es indagadora de la verdad, no de los lugares donde aparece, no de los puntos de donde asoma. Por consiguiente, adora al Sol, con independencia del punto zodiacal en que aparezca, y busca la Realidad en toda Alma Santificada que la manifieste. Tales personas siempre llegan a la verdad, sin por tanto quedar veladas del Sol del Mundo Divino. Así, el amante del Sol y el buscador de la luz, se volverá siempre hacia el sol, ya sea que brille en el signo de Aries o tienda su gracia desde el signo de Cáncer, o irradie desde Géminis.”

“To every discerning and illumined heart it is evident that God, the unknowable Essence, the divine Being, is immensely exalted beyond every human
attribute…Far be it from His glory that human tongue should adequately recount His praise, or that human heart comprehend His fathomless mystery.”

With the hands of power I made thee and with the fingers of strength I created thee; and within thee have I placed the essence of My light. Be thou content with it and seek naught else, for My work is perfect and My command is binding. Question it not, nor have a doubt thereof.”

“Indeed every light is generated by God through the power of His behest. He of a truth is the Light in the kingdom of heaven and earth and whatever is between them. Through the radiance of His light God imparteth illumination to your hearts and maketh firm your steps, that perchance ye may yield praise unto Him.”

“Seek with all your hearts this Heavenly Light, so that you may be enabled to understand the realities, that you may know the secret things of God, that the hidden ways may be made plain before your eyes.”
