254. Corpse

The dependence of the physical body is on the spirit, but the spirit does not depend on the physical body. The example of this is that the value of the human body without the spirit is only that of a dead body. As long as the spirit remains attached to the human body the fleshy body keeps itself in motion, but when the spirit detaches from the physical body, then this physical body cannot hear, speak, or even feel.




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.
