17. Acquaintance

As Adam was created from sand, so every human was created from sand, and we bury sand in sand. A beautiful statue on which everyone wants to sacrifice his life and before which people go into frenzy is actually made up of sand particles. The bowl from which people drink the wine of love is also made of sand. How beautiful and wondrous the work of God who makes different faces from the same sand, then mixes them into the same sand and recreates them. There is evidence of this for those who really want to know and understand the Creator of the universe. The tumbled nature of Adam is also very odd; he left the splendorous stream of wine deserted in heaven and said goodbye to the different types of flowers and gardens and the singing or chirping of birds in heaven. Adam does not satisfy on any single point. When he became confounded, then he left paradise and came to earth. And as lie does so his temperament alters and changes at every moment and second.




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.
