187. Sea

The nature of God is infinite. This is why the knowledge of God's attributes is infinite. The knowledge that God gave to Adam is also infinite. This knowledge is like a sea without a shore. When the status of Adam was declared to be superior to that of angels, then Adam became prominent among all other creatures of the universe because Adam has infinite knowledge of God's attributes. So, what are the attributes of God? God, in terms of nature, is the Creator, and all the attributes of God as Creator are the elements of creation and creation formulae. This is the deposit that God has gifted to Adam with his especial kindness.




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.
