207. Farmer

We see that God's winged creatures, which number in millions and millions, eat grain, but there is an unsolved mystery in this, for when the farmer gathers his cultivated crops he does not leave even a single grain. There is no special cultivation for these winged creatures. Where, then, do these birds eat? The law is that when the flock of birds comes down to the earth nature creates the grain there. If the food supply system for birds were based on the farmer, then all the birds would have died of hunger.




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.
