215. Space

When we ponder the Quran deeply we come to know that the basis of all knowledge is light, yet humans do not even know that lights have a certain disposition and nature and also inclinations. They do not know that lights are life and that they protect life. Humans are aware only of the statue of sand, a statue which does not have its own life within it, which has been created from filth and space and is not the master of its own movement.




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.
