Eyes Toward Heaven I & III, Chris Page

“O THOU true friend! Read, in the school of God, the lessons of the spirit, and learn from love’s Teacher the innermost truths. Seek out the secrets of Heaven, and tell of the overflowing grace and favor of God.”
– Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
