86. Existence

There is an existence (of the physical body) within human existence that experiences death at every moment. As death arrives at a certain moment in physical existence, the new physical body is created at the same moment as the old physical body dies. But the second existence, which is the soul, is that on which moments, hours, days, months, and years have no effect.





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.
