". . .Concerning your question regarding the meaning of the passage on page 231 of the 'Gleanings' - 'And out of it will We bring you a second time’. This is allegorical and does not imply physical resurrection.

On page 287 of the same book, 'And hath power to restore the force that hath spent itself and vanished'. No particular force is meant. It is symbolic of the regenerative power with which a righteous act is endowed.

As to your question whether the power of Baha'u'llah extends over our solar system and its higher worlds; while the revelation of Baha'u'llah, it should be noted, is primarily for this planet, yet the spirit animating it is all-embracing, and its scope therefore cannot be restricted or defined."

Your true brother,
