‘The Candle Of Thine Heart ‘

‘A Girl with a Candle’ by Godfried Schalcken

Whenever I read the following verse from ‘The Hidden Words’ it reminds me of the great blessing of having received the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh and the spiritual duties I owe in return.

‘O BEFRIENDED STRANGER! The candle of thine heart is lighted by the hand of My power, quench it not with the contrary winds of self and passion. The healer of all thine ills is remembrance of Me, forget it not. Make My love thy treasure and cherish it even as thy very sight and life’.
