15. Quietude

Why is negative thinking so common? Why is man not happy about the things and blessings he already has? Why is he struggling to fulfill wishes, which to obtain he must depart from a balanced way of life? The only answer to these questions is that we are deprived of the blessings of patience and contentment. The Quran says those who are not thankful, who do not love patience, who do not have contentment, will find that in this transitory universe peace, safety, and satisfaction hide behind thick veils. Peace and happiness are not external things. They are internal. When we become aware of this internal feeling then peace and happiness start falling on us. After knowing this universal way of thinking, a person gets liberation from misfortune, perplexity, and difficulty in life and becomes aware of the real happiness owl freshness, which are the right and heritage of people.




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.
