138. Endless Departures

When death separates the soul and the physical body, then the destination of the physical body is two meters of land (and only for whom it is available). After a few years someone else will be buried there. Oh, Bondsman! Your life, your existence, your reality is so mortal! For everyone it is a series of never-ending departures. This is an admonitory picture of mortal life in this mortal world.




What is the universe? It is a point, and this point is a divine light, and the divine light is itself a light.

Every point is the imprint of luminescence (Tajalli). When this imprint transforms itself into the divine light then it becomes Aura (Jism-e-Misali). The display of the Aura is the physical body.

The physical body is built up as a structure of bones, flesh, and muscle. The skin is a kind of plaster and color on this building. The life of the human being who is made up of veins, arteries, nerves, bones, and flesh, is nothing except senses.
