163. Real Happiness

Materialistically we do not even know what true happiness is and how to obtain it. In order to attain true happiness, it is necessary that we find out what our reality is. We should try to find out where we were before birth and where we go after our death. We should also know that to achieve real and lasting happiness the first thing that humans should know is that life is not based only on the movements and activities of the physical body but on the reality that has made this fleshly body a covering for itself.




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.
