As to the passage Arabic No. 13 of the Arabic “Hidden Words”: that which Bahá'u'lláh declares we can find abiding within us is the power of the Divine Spirit, the reflection of the light of His Revelation. This reflection of the Divine Spirit, however, can in no way be compared to the Revelation which God discloses to His Prophets and Messengers. The similarity in the terminology should not confuse this distinction, which is most fundamental. (From a letter dated 15 November 1935 written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to two believers)
