242. Mortal

Every particle of the earth is the reflection of the picture of Adam. But when this particle takes on a shape and is embodied, then the journey of mortality starts. Man is mixed up in the sand and becomes sand. The particles of sand, like the chameleon, again take on a shape and are embodied, and then again they begin their journey towards mortality and dissolution into sand. This continuous action of the self-dissolving into sand creates the tolerance of man for the oppression of sand.




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.
