149. Requisitions

Humankind lives its life based on big and small pieces of thought. To maintain physical growth, the appetite is one of the requirements of the disposition. This requirement comes to our mind in the form of thought, and under the influence of this thought we are forced to eat something. Similarly, all the needs of life are bound up in this law. There is no act in our life which does not start with thought and end with thought. When the nerves feel tired then our disposition informs us by thought that we should take a rest! And so we go to sleep.




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.
