29. Belief

The unseen world is more important than the visible world. It is very important to understand the unseen world (Ghaib). What we call religion or faith is actually an indication of the unseen world. Yet religion discusses the apparent of visible world, but the visible is not in any way important at any time. The reason is that materialistic things go the way of mortality and the way itself is mortal. As a lover or devotee of God believes in the unseen world, so the lover of the material believes in the materialistic world. The devotee or lover of God cannot live happily without having a strong faith in the unseen world, any more than the worshiper of the materialistic world cannot live in harmony without having a good belief in materiality. They both have the same pattern and have one thing in common, which is that their belief depends on this pattern. They call this belief their life, and no life is possible for them without belief, regardless of whether that life is the life of the godly devout or lover of God or the lover of the materialistic world.




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.
