272. Magic

The whole universe is a staged drama. On this stage one actor is the mother, another is a child, another, a friend, an enemy, a sinner, or one of purity. In reality, these are the different countenances of the actors working on the stage. When one actor or all the actors go off stage, they become one, and the magic of being two in the world dissolves in the presence.




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.
