99. Young Plants

For the rectification of the younger generation people are writing full columns in newspapers and books hundreds of pages long. We say amidst this torrent of guidance that if the elders of the younger generation do not rectify their own conduct, then the circumstances will not change. Why are we forgetting that when a baby is born its brain is like a blank paper? The baby adopts those habits and practices that are already established in its environment. Not a single person can deny that the child speaks the same language as its parents. Actually our young plants are the life-like picture of our character formation.




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.
