The Unexpected Visitor

'Abdu'l-Baha' and his secretary were working late at night transcribing a tablet, when they heard sharp rapping sounds coming from the front room. The assistant rose and answered the door. A disheveled man standing on the threshold suddenly exclaimed in Farsi, “I think I’m a moth, and I need to see 'Abdu'l-Baha'.”

“His Holiness cannot be disturbed” the transcriber said.

Once again the intruder exclaimed, “I think I’m a moth, and I need to see 'Abdu'l-Baha'”

“But”, said the shaken assistant, “We moved into this house just yesterday. In all of Shiraz, you could not know he was here. How did you find the Master?”

“Are you serious?” replied the man. “Your light was on.”
