O ye two blessed souls! Your letters were received. They showed that ye have investigated the truth and have been freed from imitations and superstitions, that ye observe with your own eyes and not with those of others, hearken with your own ears and not with the ears of others, and discover mysteries with the help of your own consciences and not with those of others. For the imitator saith that such a man hath seen, such a man hath heard, and such a conscience hath discovered; in other words he dependeth upon the sight, the hearing and the conscience of others and hath no will of his own.
Now, praise be to God, ye have shown will-power and
have turned to the Sun of Truth. The plain of your hearts
hath been illumined by the lights of the Lord of the Kingdom
and ye have been led to the straight path, have marched
along the road that leadeth to the Kingdom, have entered
Blessed are ye and a goodly home awaiteth you. Upon you be greetings and praise.
