267. Self Knowing

The love of people who are pure of heart and brimful of spirituality brings a person closer to self-knowledge. Who are these people? These are the people who love others for the sake of God. There is no doubt that love is the source for obtaining deliverance in the life hereafter.




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.
