246. Attraction

The company of friends creates the same thoughts and inclinations that are already working in the friends. One should increase hearty attachments only with those whose interests, thoughts, cares, and struggles are in accord with the life of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) (Usawa-e-Hasna). Trust your friends; do not bring them remorse. Try to live gaily and gladly among them. The basis of friendship should be sincerity, love, and the will of God, not personal interest. Try to adopt such attitudes that when friends sit next to you they feel pleasure and attraction.




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.
