79. Flowers

As far as the long wait is concerned, if we think deeply on the creation formulae of the universe, the matter becomes clearer than the sun that every moment is looking out for the next moment that is coming. Waiting is itself a part of life. From childhood to boyhood, from boyhood to young manhood, and from young manhood we pass to the waiting of old age. If the child born today did not have old age attached to him and spread out over sixty years of time, then the child would not survive the cradle and the process of growth would stop, the universe itself would stop, and the sun and moon would be deprived of their light. When we sow seeds in the soil it is with the watchful expectation of a time when the seed will grow flowers.




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.
