". . . With all these calamities that are befalling humanity, there should be more receptivity to what is spiritual and divine, hence there should be a larger field for work for the friends, who carry the only spiritual teachings that have any worth in these days.
As regards the mind, the soul, and the spirit: In answering such a question, Baha'u'llah says, "You asked concerning the mind, the self and the soul (or spirit). Know that these three, and similar powers attributed to man, are manifestations of that reality which is the ground of his being . . . the difference between these powers is due to the difference of organs through which that reality is manifested, otherwise that reality is the same . . . ." This subject is explained thoroughly in the talks of the Master, especially "Some Answered Questions". There are also many Tablets explaining it."
Your true brother,
