THIS is that which descended from the source of majesty through the tongue of power and strength upon the prophets of the past. We have taken its essences and clothed them with the garment of brevity as a favor to the beloved, that they may fulfill the Covenant of Grod; that they may perform in themselves that which He has entrusted to them, and attain the victoiy by virtue of devotion in the land of the spirit:

O Son of Spirit! The first counsel is: Possess a good, a pure, an en- lightened heart that thou mayest possess a Kingdom eternal, immortal, ancient and without end.

O Son of Spirit! Justice is loved above all. Ne^ect it not if thou de- sirest me. By it thou wilt be strengthened to perceive things with thine own eyes and not by the eyes of men, to know them by thine own knowl- edge and not by the knowledge of any in the world. Meditate on this — how thou ou^test to be. Justice is my bounty to thee and of my provi- dence over thee; therefore keqp it ever before thy si^t.
