271. Blue Mountain

If we look across to the far side of the spatial expanse of the universe, we see nothing but hopeless, depressing, mental poverty. It seems that the negative behaviour of earth's inhabitants which consists in running away from their own nature has caused the torch of hope of the glittering heavenly stars to grow dim. When compared to other animals, man, who claims to be the crown of creation, is living a worse mental life than they. Even a tenth part of the peace that a cat or a goat experiences is not available to humans.




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.
