Bowl of Saki for April 5
GOD SPEAKS TO THE EARS OF EVERY HEART, BUT IT IS NOT EVERY HEART THAT HEARS GOD.

All vibrations, from the throne of God to the physical plane, bound and rebound through the Universe causing the music of the spheres. This is the Message of God, in that it can be regarded as the very Message which God is speaking eternally. The theme of this Message, if it can be said to have a theme, can be epitomized in the English words "love", "harmony" and "beauty".
That is to say, the perfected principle of all that is embodied in these words is emanated in and through these cosmic vibrations. We generally do not consider light as anything but physical light, yet the plant feels that light not only as light but as life and love also. This can be seen both in its vertical growth and its daily horizontal movement in following the sun through the heavens. When the heart of man is opened, it finds the spiritual light is also life and love, and that while the mind of man has created three words and may even regard these three words as representing three thoughts, this is because of its discriminating faculty which has the tendency to divide and define.
When man lays aside this discriminating faculty and begins to feel, after a while he finds that behind every word and thought there is a spirit, and this spirit is really what the Sufis call the Spirit of Guidance
; in other words, God Himself taking on a name or form or feeling so that even individuated man can receive the spiritual Guidance. It is this which proves that God is all -loving, all-merciful, all-sympathetic, all-tender-hearted.
