177. Way of Understanding

It is our common observation that when we want to come close someone then we adopt the habits and the manners of that person. If we want to become a friend of a person who prays, then we also h~ to pray. If we want to become a friend of a person who plays cards, then we also have to play cards. Similarly, we are addicted to closeness w Satan, then we like the attributes of Satan. And if we like to get cli to God, then we adopt the attributes of God. Now the attribute of G is that He is continuously serving His creatures. 




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.
