68. Candles

One important aspect of life is that we search always for something in which we can find happiness. But because we are unaware the law that determines happiness or sadness, it happens that most the time in our search for happiness we start out in the wrong direction. Because of our unawareness we choose the way that leads us to darkness, uneasiness, and trouble. All this happens because we do not know the right pathway on which the candles of happiness are illuminated and are spreading their light, where the atmosphere turns the dew it pearls and where the ambiance is a fragrance that illuminates the consciousness.




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.
