202. Environment

To whom does this not apply? If a man builds a house with fifty rooms, he would sleep on one bed only. If in the greed of wealth he collects treasures of gold and silver, still he can eat only two pieces of bread as fuel for his stomach. It does not matter how colourful an environment one makes with artificial fragrances and lights, it cannot be the alternative for the filth that is inside the man.




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.
