Whosoever Thou exaltest is raised above the angels,
and attaineth the station:
'Verily, We uplifted him to a place on high!'

Concerning the divine WORLD OF JABARUT, accessible only to the most ardent souls, THE BEAUTY OF ABHA proclaims :
About this highest heaven attainable by the human soul, we are told, in THE STAGES OF THE SOUL (provisional translation) :
Thomas Breakwell (1872–1902)
Amazingly, the exemplary young Englishman pictured above achieved this supreme goal in a matter of months! His final year on the earth plane, a STORY of mystical love and deep faith, earned him the title of "hero" and of being "our luminary". This heartbreaking Tablet by Abdu'l-Baha confirms this statement :
Grieve thou not over the ascension of my beloved Breakwell, for he hath risen unto a rose garden of splendours within the Abha Paradise, sheltered by the mercy of his mighty Lord, and he is crying at the top of his voice: 'O that my people could know how graciously my Lord hath forgiven me, and made me to be of those who have attained His Presence!'
O Breakwell, O my dear one!
This humble wayfarer certainly reached his exalted position with the help of the heavenly Concourse, for we are told, as we travel along the Path, that :
This is the new Garden brought by the revelation of Baha'u'llah, to which he calls us insistently:
Thomas has shown us the ultimate way. Will we also respond to this CALL from the Master of our hearts?
Give ear unto that which the Spirit imparteth unto thee from the verses of God, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting, that His Call may attract thee to the Summit of transcendent glory and draw thee nigh unto the Station where thou shalt behold thine entire being set ablaze with the fire of the love of God in such wise that neither the ascendancy of the rulers nor the whisperings of their vassals can quench it, and thou wilt arise amidst the peoples of the world to celebrate the praise of thy Lord, the Possessor of Names. This is that which well beseemeth thee in this Day.
Be wonderfully blessed !
