203. Business

Muslims have the greatest spiritual capital, but they are more straitened of circumstances to the same degree. The ancestors of Muslims have left for them great treasures of sovereignty and an inheritance of conquests of the universe. Yet Muslims form that unfortunate nation that has thrown the diamond away by saying that it is only a rock, and thereby lost the ability to derive benefit from this treasure. All this happened because for the sake of expedience Muslims deviated from the way of reflection. A pathway opened up before them on which every action becomes business.




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.
