    Comes in a beautiful, lightweight 4-panel eco wallet. The album art is based on a piece by Misha Blaise, in which her piece features the Bird of Glory calligraphy originally by Mishkin Qalam. (full art featured on the inside right panel of album).
    Sonny Sachs and I took this art and developed the complete album art from it. Horizontal segments are used on the front and back covers, and the entire piece is displayed on the inside.

    The inside left panel displays liner notes containing featured guest vocalists and bassist names, and the Baha'i Writing in full which the song lyrics are taken from.

A teaching prayer, Revealed to the Bahá’ís of the Southern States

Every soul who travels through the cities, villages and hamlets of these States and is engaged in the diffusion of the fragrances of God, should peruse this commune every morning:

O my God! O my God! Thou seest me in my lowliness and weakness, occupied with the greatest undertaking, determined to raise Thy word among the masses and to spread Thy teachings among Thy peoples. How can I succeed unless Thou assist me with the breath of the Holy Spirit, help me to triumph by the hosts of Thy glorious kingdom, and shower upon me Thy confirmations, which alone can change a gnat into an eagle, a drop of water into rivers and seas, and an atom into lights and suns? O my Lord! Assist me with Thy triumphant and effective might, so that my tongue may utter Thy praises and attributes among all people and my soul overflow with the wine of Thy love and knowledge.

Thou art the Omnipotent and the Doer of whatsoever Thou willest.
