On Walking upon the Earth: Every man of discernment feeleth indeed abashed

Life is a hike. Take a hike. -gw
Every man of discernment, while walking upon the earth, feeleth indeed abashed, inasmuch as he is fully aware that the thing which is the source of his prosperity, his wealth, his might, his exaltation, his advancement and power is, as ordained by God, the very earth which is trodden beneath the feet of all men. There can be no doubt that whoever is cognizant of this truth, is cleansed and sanctified from all pride, arrogance, and vainglory. Whatever hath been said hath come from God. Unto this, He, verily, hath borne, and beareth now, witness, and He, in truth, is the All-Knowing, the All-Informed.
Epistle to the Son of the Wolf by Bahá’u’lláh, US Bahá’í Publishing Trust, 1988 pocket-size edition, p 44
