72. Blood


Jokes and brambles, flowers and thorns are reactions of feelings themselves. These reactions indicate a way of thinking. If the w of thinking involves belief, certainty, and observation, then this means that the children of Adam are aware of peace. If the way of thinking involves uncertainty, doubt, and disloyalty, then life is like a bed full thorns. Every turn on this bed is full of blood and every breath mortal.




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.
