Thou seest the Dayspring of Thine utterance in the darkness of creation: Where is the sun of the heaven of Thy grace, O Light-Giver of the worlds?

The lamps of truth and purity, of loyalty and honor, have been put out: Where are the signs of Thine avenging wrath, O Mover of the worlds?

Canst Thou see any who have championed Thy Self, or who ponder on what hath befallen Him in the pathway of Thy love? Now doth My pen halt, O Beloved of the worlds.

~Baha’u’llah

This is an excerpt from The Fire Tablet of Baha’u’llah.  The word “tablet” in this context is similar to “letter”.  Many of Baha’u’llah’s writings were sent to followers as letters.

For information regarding Baha’u’llah and the religion he brought see http://www.bahaullah.org and http://www.bahai.org

One thought on “A Meditation

  1. I love the words of the Fire Tablet. It is such a powerful piece, one that can bring one to tears or ecstasy.

    And I love Jericha’s pictures. They are beautiful in themselves, and beautifully complement the words.
