151. The Noble Senses

The man who thinks and calls himself the crown of all creatures thinks about the beginning and end of his life, then he will see that first stage of his creation is filth and stench, and that at the end of it his beautiful body becomes the food of insects. Even after this clear I obvious reality, everyone is engrossed in the imaginary world of profit and gain. Only one thought has become his prime imperative and purpose of life: wealth, wealth, and more wealth. That wealth is so much infinite muck. When anyone falls into it, he can no longer live in the nobility of the senses.




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.
