223. Truth and Lie

A human being is, in fact, a tree, and the actions and deeds of his life are the fruits of this tree. The tree cannot be recognized by its root, but it can be recognized by its fruits. Similarly, the same situation applies to human actions. The decision as to the truth of something is not made on the basis of its source but its results. The action of a human being is itself a belief that he is telling a truth or a lie. The best way of analyzing any action is to see how the action is going to affect society. If the act has truthfulness, depth, and nature, then this action is right and true.




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.
