Rejoice from the divine soul when it commands your hearts, and look deeply into the dreams of truthfulness that are the signs of guidance, and seek the signs of heart to open the gates of heaven. Do all of this until the time arrives that your heart shall rise in the Name of God and find the fortune of justice. Do not approach, all scattered and doubtful, the people of God, but learn from them the breaking of the unknown idol of the self and so pass through the gate of change into new birth. Experience the blessing of the people of God in the center of your heart, and become familiar with the truth of life which is your passage. A truthful salek deeply watches and fully knows the path he follows. Her concentration and silence within, and her gentleness and virtue in the world, are all based on the principles of knowledge and wisdom.
