209. Little Space

Many herbs that are found in the earth have seeds twenty times smaller than poppy seeds. Nature has put in them two conjoin leaves and a stem that becomes a root and penetrates into the earth. They have a knot that becomes a stem and stores a few days supply food in the seed before the seed roots get deep enough. Oh, people wisdom! Think deeply! Peer deeply into the universe with your intellect and try to appreciate that in such a small seed nature has stored much life. Then consider how much more treasure would be present Adam, who is God's helper. 




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.
