140. Test

The true believer remains resolute in every circumstance. Whatever circumstances may come, he never becomes trapped in the swamp of hopelessness. In order to thank God he assumes his life style. He knows that just as the period of happiness comes, so the coming of the period of difficulty is also a reaction. He never stops the struggle in the time of testing because his whole life is itself a struggle and a journey.




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.
