228. Broom

Everyone knows and understands that as long as people live in unity and with similar passion they are said to be one. They have their own voice, and their power is united. If the straws of a broom are separated and as separate straws are used to strike somebody, they do no harm, not even if one hits a person a thousand times with them. But if one collects the broom straws, brings them together, and then hits someone, that person will be black and blue from the blow.




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.
