258. Diffusing Fragrance

If a person has peace in his inner being, then he can be a source of satisfaction and peace for others. If his reflections are cool and the fragrance of his life radiates outward, then his spiritual feelings are real. But if the person himself is far from peace of mind and clouds of grief always overspread him, then he is groaning at the foot of the mountains of fear and fright and all is dry, sere, and barren, then these feelings are of satanic inspiration and his entire life is a deceit.




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.
