O dear one of ‘Abdu'l-Bahá:
Be the son of thy father and be the fruit of that tree. Be a son that hath been born of his soul and heart
and not only of water and clay.   A real son is such one as hath branched from the spiritual part of man.   I ask God that thou mayest be at all times confirmed and strengthened.
