Quote of the Day, 3 Sharaf 173 BE

"In the universe of creation all phenomenal beings are as letters. Letters in themselves are meaningless and express nothing of thought or ideal--as, for instance, a, b, etc. Likewise, all phenomenal beings are without independent meaning. But a word is composed of letters and has independent sense and meaning. Therefore, as Christ conveyed the perfect meaning of divine reality and embodied independent significance, He was the Word. He was as the station of reality compared to the station of metaphor. There is no intrinsic meaning in the leaves of a book, but the thought they convey leads you to reflect upon reality. The reality of Jesus was the perfect meaning, the Christhood in Him which in the Holy Books is symbolized as the Word."

- Words attributed to `Abdu'l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace
