The meaning of contentment is not only a matter of gaining independence from money. No one can be completely free from money and desires. The necessities of life and the need to put food on the table for family members are inevitable and have a relationship to human rights. The true meaning of contentment is that whatever a person does should be according to the will of God, and by his action and way of thinking, the creature of God should not be hurt in any way.




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.
