268. The Learned Wisdom

Disposition and essence are two different things. By essence we have partnership with other species like sheep, goats, cattle, buffaloes, dogs, cats, snakes, pigeons, and doves. By disposition we have our own individual position. This position is gifted to us by the eternal power that is beyond all other creatures and surpasses in excellence all the people of the universe. This gift is the ability to reflect and excel in wisdom.




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.
