175. Spiritual Teacher

Knowledge of the Soul opens the doors of knowledge of God. In order to attain knowledge of God, spiritual people must pass through several stages, and the first stage is that of "NO" (LA). This means that a person must reject all his traditional and conscious knowledge. Afterwards, he proceeds on his way to acquiring spiritual knowledge. He comes to the stage where his own reality reveals knowledge to him, which means he is receiving knowledge of the Soul. Here the spiritual student must have the guidance of a spiritual teacher in order to continue on the predetermined and fixed path.




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.
