Juxtapositions as gems of inter-spirituality

There are 49 uses of ‘heart’ in Baha’u’llah’s Hidden Words. About the Hidden Words as scripture Bahá’u’lláh says;

He is the Glory of Glories

This is that which hath descended from the realm of glory, uttered by the tongue of power and might, and revealed unto the Prophets of old. We have taken the inner essence thereof and clothed it in the garment of brevity, as a token of grace unto the righteous, that they may stand faithful unto the Covenant of God, may fulfil in their lives His trust, and in the realm of spirit obtain the gem of Divine virtue.

The Hidden Word I chose is;

Rejoice in the gladness of thine heart, that thou mayest be worthy to meet Me and to mirror forth My beauty.

From Thomas a Kempis we have;

Thou art my glory and the exultation of my heart: thou art my hope and refuge in the day; thou art my hope and refuge in the day of my trouble. – SOURCE p214 Words to Live By Eknath Easwaran
